THURSDAY'S ENTRY # TWO THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED & SIXTY FOUR


"Begin the day with God"



Good Morning ,


Hope you all are feeling good today ? I am in a Happy mood and feeling good this Thursday morning. I had a good rest again last night, we were in our Wednesday night Bible study Luke 10, we did enjoy it so much.

I am so proud of my grand-daughter, Beth. Click on BETHANY  and see the news!

Also go to Tennessee Granddaddy and read more.

CONGRATULATIONS BETH!

See It Through

By Edgar Guest

 When you're up against a trouble, Meet it squarely, face to face;

Lift your chin and set your shoulders, Plant your feet and take a brace.

When it's vain to try to dodge it, Do the best that you can do;

You may fail, but you may conquer, See it through!

Black may be the clouds about you

And your future may seem grim,

But don't let your nerve desert you;

Keep yourself in fighting trim.

If the worst is bound to happen,

Spite of all that you can do,

Running from it will not save you,

See it through!

Even hope may seem but futile,

When with troubles you're beset,

But remember you are facing

Just what other men have met.

You may fail, but fall still fighting;

Don't give up, whate'er you do;

Eyes front, head high to the finish.

See it through!

....

Now I am ready for some of that Sumutar x bold Coffee which is perking and then as usual I want to see Oreo at Sara's Dog Training blog and then talk to Sara to see how he is getting along.

WEDNESDAY'S ENTRY # TWO THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED & SIXTY-THREE

" Always begin the day with God "

 

Good Morning.

Well how are you feeling on this Wednesday morning ? It looks like another nice day, We have a temperature of 54 degrees to begin the day, so that looks good to me, Dad

We are still doing a little experimenting on this new Journal format, and I think that we are doing a little better. Yesterday we worked some on pictures and it looks like that we are going to do better there.

THE SEA  SHORE

I walked on the shore in the cool of the morn,
When the bloom lingered fresh on the day,
And the sweet loving touch of the kindness of God
Became one with each step of the way.

There, shells in their thousands crunched under each foot,
But I gathered and kept an odd one.
When the color was better and brighter to see
Than the most, which were bleached in the sun.

They had grown in the depths of the fast changing sea,
Where conditions for all were the same,
Yet some had such color and some had such worth
Were as jewels just awaiting a frame.

There are millions and millions beneath the dark wave,
And their tints are but drab at the most.
Some day they will whiten and break in the tide
To build up the sands of the coast.

The odd one is gathered with beauty so rare
It will add to the grace of the home,
Where mounted and polished as an ornament fine
Is not lost in the surge and the foam.

A shell is the soul in the hand of the Lord
It is sought for its beauty and grace.
Not just one of the thousands but one of its kind
And will find honor and place.

Not one stays here unseen. not one shall be lost
There is nothing escaping His eye.
We are sure in His love to be found and be kept,
If reflecting His glory we lie...

by Roy Price

FRIDAYS ENTRY TWO THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED FIFTY NINE

....
" Time is so precious-do not waste any of it living for yourself, live for others "

Good Morning.

This poem below by Helen Steiner Rice was sent to me by my friend John M. It seems to be what I need to read this over and over, to me it explains so many things that I have wondered about in the past. Thanks John. DAD

A Bend in the Road

When we feel we have nothing left to give
And we are sure that the 'Song has ended'
When our day seems over and the shadows fall
And the darkness of night has descended.

Where can we go to find the strength
To valiantly keep on trying -
Where can we find the hand that will dry
The tears that the heart is crying?

There's but one place to go and that is to God
And dropping all pretence and pride -
We can pour out our problems without restraint
And gain strength with Him at our side.

And together we stand at life's crossroads
And view what we think is the end -
But God has a much bigger vision
And He tells us 'It's only a bend.'

'For the road goes on and is smoother
And the 'pause in the song' is a 'rest' -
And the part that's unsung and unfinished
Is the sweetest and richest and best.

So rest and relax and grow stronger
Let go and let God share your load -
-Your work is not finished or ended
You've just come to 'A Bend in the Road.'
by Helen Steiner Rice

I am in need of a cup of that Starbucks Sumatra x bold coffee right now, and also I always go look at Oreo. so while the coffee is perking I am going to look in on him at Sara's Dog Training blog. I don't worry about Oreo because I know with out any doubts that Sara is watching over him. Thanks Sara. DAD

Before I go away I would like to pour you a cup of Starbucks Sumatra x bold coffee, and I have a little mystery to solve. I was out of coffee yesterday, and Mary was going grocery shopping, and I told her to just get anything until I could go to the Starbucks store. When she got to the coffee department in our local grocery store she was shocked they had a large supply of Sumatra x bold, which they have never had before. Maybe our talking about it so much has created a demand for it. Starbucks I will send you a statement the first of the month. DAD

MONDAYS ENTRY TWO THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED FIFTY FIVE # ONE

" Be ye kind to one another "

Good Morning.

The following story was sent to me a few days ago. I thought it was very inspiring. I hope you enjoy…

This will inspire you! What courage and determination!! What a great horse!!!

The determined Bettina Eistel and her very special horse, Fabuleax 5. I saw this photo today and it took a while for my brain to register what I was seeing… Take a look.

pic 1

Look closely...

Yup. No arms. Her name is Bettina Eistel and her horse is Fabuleax 5. What is even more compelling than the fact that she can brush her horse with her feet, is that she competes, very well, at the Paralympics in dressage. Bettina didn’t just overcome her disability, she walloped it!

pic 2

Cantering

WHY NO ARMS? Thalidomide. (I wanted to read her book but it isn’t translated into English and I cannot read German. I wonder if a Kindle could translate it?…) Anyway, she was born in 1961 in Germany, with no arms due to the drug, Thalidomide.

pic 3Her book

What is Thalidomide? Thalidomide was a drug they gave pregnant women before it was known that it caused birth defects… Hence, Bettina was born without any arms. When I was too little to understand manners, I can remember my mother telling me not to stare at kids I would see who had birth defects. She would shake her head and just whisper, “Thalidomide”. I remember being very appreciative that I didn’t have that kind of a birth defect.

pic 4

Saddling

FAST FORWARD Bettina doesn’t let her disability stop her. After all, this way of being is all she has ever known… As an aside, another disabled Olympian was explaining the difference between being born with a disability versus being born “whole” and acquiring the disability. This concept is an interesting topic. You probably can come to some of your own conclusions here.

pic 5Bridling... look at him drop his head.

Anyway, as a small child, Bettina learned how to use her feet and toes as her hands and fingers. As a youngster, she started in horseback riding lessons. (Thank goodness her parents supported her and let go of their fears around this.) She wears riding boots with cut-outs in the toes so she can have ‘hands’ (imagine how cold her toes must get … and how often they clip a branch or a fence board – ouch!). She can saddle, bridle, hose down, wrap, blanket and do just about anything else that is needed for her horse. And, she rides by steering with her legs and holding the reins in her mouth. IN HER MOUTH. Try that… I tried to hold my brush in my mouth and I ended up drooling all over the place in about a minute. I have no idea how she does it. Amazing. Oh, and besides all those horse riding feats, she can text, write and put on mascara with her to eyes! Hmmmm. I’m starting to feel sheepish for complaining about anything…

pic 6

They say Bettina is a master at hose water fights!

“After high school in 1979, Bettina studied the History of Art, Archaeology and Ethnology in Hamburg, followed by an eight-year study of psychology. During her psychology studies, she participated in a project with Hamburg’s home for children. In 1989 she completed her studies with a diploma and has since worked as a graduate psychologist in a Hamburg counseling center for children and family therapy.” PARALYMPICS I really couldn’t find much information on her coaching (Her coach Franz-Martin Stankus) or how she learned to ride. But, I did find out that she: “Eistel was formerly Vice-Europe and Vice World Champion (two silver and bronze at the European Championships in Portugal in 2002 and three silver at the World Championships in Belgium in 2003) and won two silver and one bronze medal at the 2004 Paralympics in Athens , she won also three times the German championship. As the most recent successes are the bronze medal in the required tasks of the individual competition and the silver medal in the team standings at the 2008 Paralympics in Hong Kong.” Not bad even for a girl WITH arms…

pic 7

With her dressage medal

HER HORSE You have to really think about the kind of horse who would let this kind of a rider be his partner. Really… what temperament is needed to perform at high level dressage as well as take care of a disabled rider? Wow. I wish I knew if they looked high and low for him… or if they simply trained a good horse to understand this rider? (I need to read her book.) I mean, did they find a horse and say to him that this is the way we are going to do it now? Or, does the Fabuleax 5 ‘know’? I often hear that certain horses are much more gracious with disabled riders than with regular riders. I know that my horse is much nicer to children than to me… I wonder how that happens? Is it the horse or the quality/feel/spirit of the disabled rider/child that effects the horse? Dunno.

pic 8

Taking a treat from Mom

Bettina says she trained her horse via voice commands, head movement and leg aids. Funny, I bet hardly any of us would think it was even possible to ride a horse without arms. From where I sit, I would like to be in the presence of the wonderful Fabuleax 5. He is a saint in my book. Fabuleax lets Bettina ride him in the only way she can… with the reins in her teeth and the other set of reins between her toes. And, he does his job. Simple. Gosh. Impressive. If you notice in the photos, he lowers his head to be bridled and to be brushed. Atta boy!

Beautiful boy

pic 9TELEVISION HOST Bettina also landed a gig as a Talk Show Host. With a weekly show on German TV station ZDF, Bettina is something of a media star. They say her popularity is because of her engaging and optimistic personality… but one cannot ignore her amazing ability to do everything, literally everything, with her feet..

pic 10Bettina as talk show host

AFTERTHOUGHT I wanted to bring this story to you because I think sometimes we give up too easily. Or maybe it is just me… maybe I think I give up too easily. Reading about Bettina was a good shot in the arm for me… I sure don’t feel like making any excuses or complaining… I cannot even imagine folding the laundry with my feet, let alone living 24 hours without my hands. Wow. Very inspirational.

pic 11What a great team!

I hope that it has meant something to you, I know that it has to me. I will never complain again. DAD

This is going to be all, I hope to see you on my regular blog tomorrow I am sending Love to all of you.

We are sending Love and best wishes to all of you in this troubled, mixed up world. We are hoping for the best in the future. Until I pop in again--
