I took my blood pressure today in one of those machines they have set up at the pharmacy center in the nearby Walmart…

I’ve done this many times in different pharmacies, stores, etc…

My doctor wanted me to keep tabs on my blood pressure
and check it regularly.


While the test is going on, there’s a video of a nice lady
telling you what to expect,
(“the cuff on your arm is going to tighten”)…
she’s very polite and nice.

I sat there taking the test today
(repeating to myself, “Relaaax, R-E-S-T, Relaaax…”)
and trying to think of sweet, peaceful thoughts
(so my blood pressure will be lower —
I wonder if that really works??)

As I felt the cuff tightening considerably on my arm,
I actually listened to what the nice lady
was saying in the video…
It went something like this, “If the pressure is too much,
just hit the stop button and the test will stop immediately.”

She was, of course, referring to the tightening of the cuff
on the arm during the blood pressure test.

But in my profoundly thoughtful mood,
I thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be nice if sometimes
we could do that in life?
When there’s a “test” going on and my “arm” is
getting too tight for comfort,
just hit the stop button and immediately the cuff
begins to deflate and my arm feels so much better.
Then I could go on my merry way and my arm
won’t hurt anymore.

There is, of course, no such “stop button”.

but I looked up some words that help me…


“Truly, my soul waits upon God;
from Him comes my salvation.
He only is my Rock and my Salvation,
He is my defense;
I shall not be greatly moved.
My soul, wait thou only upon God
for my expectation is from Him
In God is my salvation and my glory:
the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
Trust in him at all times; ye people,
pour out your heart before him:
God is a refuge for us.”  Psalm 62:1,2,7,8

I pray you’re doing great.
But just in case you’re feeling overwhelmed,
I pray those words will encourage your heart
and bring you joy.

I love The Lord because he hears
my voice and my supplications.
Because he has inclined his ear to me,
Therefore I will call upon him 
as long as I live.

Most men enjoy watching/reading News, right?
Well, my husband is no exception.

This past week as he was reading one of the online News sites,
he thought it was funny that it actually said
there was snow in 49 States!
–all, except Florida!!

He sent that news clip to our kids
(who were “stranded” at home in different parts of the country
due to the winter storms)…
He let them know they could always come back home.
Bless his heart.

It’s usually hot in Florida,
but this week it’s been nice & cool.

So, here we are, enjoying the Florida weather for a change.
Don’t hate us.
