"This is all new to me.... ALL NEW TO ME!!!"

Spring... The direct rays of the Sun have crossed the Equator, and marks the beginning of when things start to 'spring' with new life.  Maybe a little poetic or melodramatic, but it is reasonably accurate.  :)  Afterall, this is my first blog... that is sorta like things happening in Spring (maybe just a little?).


So.... Spring has sprung here, and it is warm, mild, comfortable.  Every once in awhile during the past few weeks, it has been warm, then gotten cool/cold again for a few days.  I might be nutty, but I like the cool/cold weather too. 

Overall, things are going pretty well.  You might not know it by circumstances.  Still haven't found a job, but I am looking (or should I say LOOKING!!!).  I have gained a few pounds (not so much from inactivity, but from the instant gratification of Reese's Peanut Butter cups and Mountain Dews.  I need to get away from them.  It is so easy to start that tomorrow... "Its only a day away..."  Oh yeah, my wallet was stolen too.  Maybe more on that later...

I am getting out some more, which is a big jump from 8 to 9 months ago.  Looking back, it is mind-blowing how 'gripped' I was then.  I can say that I am thankful for meds and counseling... or more like it, I am thankful to the Lord for it all.  

Don't think I have to tell any of you, it can be tough.  Even so, there are times that I feel humbled (to be sure), peaceful, and an unexplainable gratefulness.  I say 'unexplainable' because... well, it is hard to put into words... the feeling that is.

Okay, the wallet... From what I have been told, it was by one of those homeless/panhandler types you see at street intersections with the signs that read, "Will work for food," or something similar.   Evidently, it fell out of my jacket, someone found it, randomly asked people in the parking lot if it was there's.   He claimed it.  Nevermind that the ID inside would have CLEARLY told anyone with even bad vision that this was not the same person.  (Eh, a lost wallet, who would think to look for any ID...?) 


I didn't notice till several minutes later.  I returned to the 'scene'  and got the story.

Its was a pain in the neck to QUICKLY put a stop on the credit cards, etc...  At the end of the day, it could be worse.  "But for the grace of God, there go I..."  It was a small inconvenience compared to the many things that make me a fortunate person, and for which I should be grateful.  Thank you Lord.
