Drinking PEG 3350

And it isn't so bad! I was able to put two packets of Crystal Light lemonade in it. That has really helped. It is important to do this procedure, and I didn't get around to in my 50th year. So, I am one year and six weeks behind the curve!

In other news, I am back in the swing of life after such a nice vacation. I am very grateful for the time away, and I am now ready to go for it. My schedule will be much less hectic as I am not facilitating Thelma's class this year. It was just too much work for me for just one child, and Paul didn't really care if he did it or not. Michael finished his course of Classical, American, and British Literature. I would like Paul to take Classical Literature though. I would still like to get the lectures and edit them ahead of time for Paul for next year.

As an alternative, Paul will be doing Anatomy and Physiology with Nathan. That will be really slow and easy and not a big strain on me.

We are also not doing the two nights a week of meeting for the TOAG. So, that will also free up our schedule too. I really missed our nights together as a family around the dinner table, and the TOAG took away two of those nights. With the two church meetings that George has per month. It made for many less family dinners and almost no date nights. I am looking forward to reinstalling both into our schedule. :)  I will still have the study with the Iranians, but I think that is going to be at 6:30. So, I will still have dinner with my family.

Well, back to drinking and also to studying before I am not able to be sitting here and typing anymore. :)

Snapfish versus Shutterfly

I dealt with both this week. So, while it is fresh in my mind, I am doing a comparison for ordering prints. Wish I could do it in table form, but I am simply not savvy enough or maybe I am just lazy.

Shutterfly

PROS

1) CUSTOM CROPS - I have gone all over the Internet looking for people who say this is an advantage. To me, that is huge if I have cropped a photo with an other than 4x6 size in my photo editing software and then I try to print them. BOTH Snapfish and Shutterfly print these photos with cut off heads and portions gone and both don't seem to have a mechanism for telling me that the whole image isn't going to be in the print. (Also, both tend to cut off heads and such for prints from my point and shoot too. I think it is because it is from a different aspect ratio). 

BOTH need to notify you to say that things are not going to fit in the frame, but Shutterfly gives you something to do about it with their custom crop tool! I also LOVE that you can make a custom border aroun…

8. Prayer: The Mightiest Force in the World by Frank C. Laubach

In keeping with my prayer emphasis for 2014, here is another gem of a book on prayer written by the same person who wrote The Game with Minutes that I reviewed in January, Frank Laubach. 

It was such a challenge to caste my prayer for world leaders (which was one of my applications from the Prayer Challenge that I am doing from Super Bowl Sunday to Easter). I had a half day in prayer last Friday; and because of this book's reminders, I prayed for the president of Ukraine to step down. Within hours, he fled the country. Now I have to really get on my knees for Putin because he might mess the whole thing up by sending military there. Oh my.

Instead of reinventing the wheel, I am cutting and pasting one person's reflections and quotes from the book:


One of Laubach's most important suggestions in this terrific little book is that we pray during the "chinks" that happen in all of our schedules: while stuck in traffic, doing mindless chores, standing in lines, and so on. …

1. The Game with Minutes by Frank C. Laubach

This is really more a short essay, but it is profound and important. It is one of the best things I have ever read and applying it will change your life. 

This is a reread for me as I have paired it with my reading of Letters by a Modern Mysticby Laubach in the past, but it is good all on its own, and we have our Kingdom training groups read it every time we do this curriculum, and people usually really like it! We pair it with reading The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence which I have read on a regular basis over the last 35 years. Laubach was like a modern day Brother Lawrence, but practicing God's presence in the midst of real life rather than in a monastery. 

Here is a PDF download:  of "The Game with Minutes"

Here is also a PDF of Letters by a Modern Mystic:
