Satisfaction

672FB006-F9E8-49FE-9FB8-488F709D4221Satisfaction
When we get what we want, we have that feeling of being satisfied. But what about when things don’t go as we would wish? It seems that we often let our circumstances define our satisfaction, which impacts our level of happiness. Perhaps we should take a different perspective and just appreciate and be satisfied with what we have in any situation. That contentment may be very satisfying after all and lead to deeper joy.

Rodanniversary

EAAFC5EC-0BD2-411A-9B75-B593F945E195Today is my Rodanniversary. What a privilege and pleasure it is helping people choose skincare products that will boost their confidence level by giving them healthier, younger-looking skin. Doctors Rodan and Fields developed Proactiv for acne and marketed it globally into a billion dollar business. Now they have created a line of skincare that addresses other skin concerns and they have allowed consultants like me to be a part of this new multi-billion dollar business. Like Proactiv, our new products are poised to expand globally, but this time, we can own a part of it. What an amazing opportunity👍👍

The Vine

15E635F6-C602-4B9C-BF84-8596CAA29E56 “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for apart from me ye can do nothing.”
‭‭John‬ ‭15:5‬ ‭ASV‬‬
The Vine
Growing up I remember my sister saying that what is in you comes out when squeezed—our real selves have to be tested in order to know who we really are. And the fruit we bear is dependent on who we are. Wow, many years later, I am just beginning to understand all the meanings behind that truth.

Early Spring

We experienced a record high temperature today. It felt like spring. “Phil” did not see his shadow this year so perhaps spring will be early. Definitely the short days and cold weather of winter cause me to appreciate this warmth. Now I wait for another sign from nature—one of my favorites, the jonquil. It is March’s flower and an early bloomer in springtime—truly a sign of the times.

Sangria

Sangria dates back to the 18th century. The origin may be Spanish sangre (blood), in reference to the red color or Sanskrit via the Urdu sakkari (sugared wine).
There are many recipes for this Spanish delight with many regional distinctions. Traditional recipes feature red wine mixed with various fruits, sweetened with sugar. Spanish Rioja red wine is traditional, but Sangria blanca (sangria with white wine) can also be made. Last night, we enjoyed both as we celebrated the announcement of our Spanish exchange student.

Glory

GLORY
Today is a brilliant sunny and warm winter day—truly magnificent! There are many ways He displays His Glory every day, but too often I lack sufficient thankfulness. Not today, I am so thankful and full of joy!
