This morning i had an appointment with the doctor to discuss my therapy for anxiety, we chatted and discussed my feelings after having my recent health issue. My doctor offered me information on a book that might benefit me on an emotional level after going through my health trauma, i declined, not because i am in denial as to what has happened but i know me and this is not something i myself would benefit from. We are all different in how we cope with lifes challanges.
After my appointment which went very well, i set about errands i had to make, and could not wait to get home and make a cuppa tea while secretly hoping my book has arrived through the post!
I walk through our front door and my eyes fall down to our doormat, no little parcel waiting for me, if i am honest i did feel a twang of disapointment. Oh well must unpack the food shop, wash the fridge out and try my new floor soap on the kitchen floor tiles.
Then i heard the flap of the letter box and a thud on the floor, yes, i thought thats me book!!! ha!
I tore at the parcel envelope to reveal my book and immediatly got the magazine feeling, for those that do not know this, i get so excited i can not actually look inside, i have to leave it where i can see it for awhile! It sometimes takes me a month to read a magazine!!
As soon as i open my little amish book of inspiring thoughts and my eyes dance over the most delightful pictures i think this is a book i will benefit from.
My book is called "A celebration of the simple life" its beautiful.
Attitude of Acceptance
It's not easy to accept some things;
We often worry,grumble, and fret.
How much better it would be
If we trusted God instead of getting upset.
An attitude of acceptance
Gives one a sense of peace.
When we trust God to know what's best for us,
Our anxiety and tension will cease.
Each page gives an inspiring thought like above, a beautiful picture followed by alittle story and a prayer.x
