“Friendship is the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring all right out just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of comfort, blow the rest away.

Sunday Scripture

“On the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place. Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like a roaring mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting. Then what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them. And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability. “

Act 2: 1 – 4 (NLT)

Saturday Smoothie

I love Panera's new smoothie. What is it? It is the Fat Free Green Passion Power Smoothie. A quick glance at the calorie count and it appears almost perfect. This smoothie has a mere 200 calories for 12 oz. Sounds good. Now, I take a closer look, I discover over 50 grams of carbohydrates. The ingredients include the following, a peach mango base, white grape, water, and spinach. 

I know what I will do. I will make my own smoothie. What will I include? First, I will begin with spinach, then, I will add apple, ice cubes... I will play with the ingredients.

Pets of the week Orchid and Tila

Orchid and Tila* are the pets of the week.  I met them as I was leaving the Y on Tuesday. They had just finished their morning run.  As you see, these pets are Goldendoodles.  Goldendoodles are bred from a Golden Retriever and Poodle.
According to their owner, these pets are obedient, loyal, intelligent, and excellent exercise partners. Special thanks for their owner in allowing me to take their picture.  Orchid is on the right. 

·      I am not for sure if I have the correct spelling.

Look into my eyes ...

Is this phrase familiar to you? It is to me. Why is this phrase so recognizable?  Is it part of a dialogue from an old movie? Is this phrase where the movie character tries to hypnotize a person?   Is it part of a song’s lyric?  I wish I could remember!

My eye exam triggered this memory. People were looking into my eyes. They tested my eye pressure, directed me to read an eye chart, moved my head this way, place my forehead here and dilated my eyes.

Why now? It was time for my eye examination.  As people age the frequency of vision problems increase.   Glaucoma, eye floaters, and cataracts are just a few of the issues.

Looking in my eyes the ophthalmologist was able to accurately tell me about my overall health.    
Yes ... eyes are a window into our overall health.

Routine eye examinations are important.

This was one of the medical devices  used in my examination.
