Ninja Power

A day of dress-ups … ninja style… with origami ninja stars. Queen Ninja Liza was a little glum.06 june 20148

I’ve been surveying folks who eat Greek yogurt?
– Do you really enjoy eating Greek Yogurt?
Or do you just eat it because of the extra health benefits?

(for me… higher level of protein than regular yogurt.)
I’ve never enjoyed any greek yogurt I’ve tried. But this kind… Tillamook Farmstyle Greek Vanilla doesn’t gag me out too much.
Last night’s snack… blueberries, cottage cheese, cucumbers, and a little bit of stove-popped popcorn.

p.s. Jimmy went to the Salt Lake Temple today. I went to Mt. Timp temple tonight. I took my merry ol’ time as I was in desperate need for a break from the noise! Also… prep for Jimmy going to a job interview in Maryland this weekend.
While waiting in the chapel for the session to start I read Psalms 55 …
which sort of made me chuckle as I applied some of it to life & my struggles lately.
(I’ll tell ya… summer with all the tots home… this new eating routine… tiredness … big belly & dysfunctional hips are plum wearing me out!
It seems that sometimes there is nothing left to give to my fam.
But I know these times require DIGGING DEEP … drawing from that Spiritual Reserve … and continue to add to that reserve… sigh.)

1 Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.

2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise; …

4 My heart is sore pained within me: … (What more can I do to help create peace in this home and family? – ok… maybe start with getting rid of Ninja play!)

5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me. (ok – not horror… but I am trying not to fear about the future)

6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest. (escape to temple for respite, peace, and inspiration)

7 Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. …

8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest. (or chaos of children arguing – PEACE CHILDREN, PEACE!)

9 … for I have seen violence and strife in the city. (does constant wrestling & poking eyes out count as violence! those boys!)

10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it. … (though I know we have pleasant, happy moments, it does seem that often the strife does go on from 6 a.m. – 8 p.m. – Day & Night)

16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me. (may i feel the calm … in the storm … or may the storm be calmed by the Master of Peace.)

17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.

18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me. …

22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

23 But … I will trust in thee.

{So … now I am focusing on casting my burdens upon the Lord … to ease worries… gain peace… and increase faith. For some reason it seems easier said than done.}
