well, i am now a fully certified leader in Stanford U’s “Chronic Illness Self Management Program” ! good worldwide ! and happy to have gone through the excellent program. i’ve learned MANY self management tools myself which have already been of benefit while learning.
so now that i’m home i can respond to Singing Owl’s Friday Five from Rev Gals. here’s today’s prompt ~
Hello everyone! The Canadian geese are excited, forming up and practicing, encouraging each other with honking, the Wisconsin fall color is at peak where I am, and in Kohl’s Dept. Store the Christmas decorations are up. Yep, Fall is here. It’s my turn to do the Rev Gal Blog Pals Friday Five. It has been a while since we did one of these word association Friday FIves, so here goes, with an autumnal theme. I know, fall is one way on this side of the world and different in other places, but please bear with me as I post words that say FALL–at least where I am.Give us the the first word that comes to mind (you know how that works, right?) and then add a little something about why, or how or what. 1. Pumpkins ~ PIE !! it’s Thanksgiving weekend here & that’s ESSENTIAL to this celebration !! 2. Campfire ~ girls – i have no idea why that popped into my head 😉 ?! 3. Apples – golden ~ one of my favourites 🙂 golden delicious 4. Color ~ blue is what instantly came to my mind … 5. Halloween ~ FuN because that’s what it was when i was a child – just FuN. NOT scary! And since it is REV Gals and their Pals, here is the bonus question, sort of a serious one: What does the following passage from Daniel 2 make you think about? “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
Wisdom and power are his…
He changes times and seasons.”
it reminds me of the awesome Greatness that oversees the world in which i/we live, move and have our being… the worthiness of praise that God bears… and the recognition that is due for what we take for granted…
thanks Singing Owl ! i enjoyed your excellent and thoughtful prompt ~
