I'm a list maker. I have so many lists that I feel the need to make a list of my lists. LOL Organization is also important to me even if I never seem to live up to my goals. I still feel the need to be orderly, to make lists, to plan, to dream, to hope.... you get the picture. Reading the blog of my friend Kimberly the other day I noticed she celebrates Wellness Wednesdays so I decided to join her. I knew having a wellness check point would be good for me, I've asked that my name be added to the LIST of those that are celebrating Wellness Wednesday's.

Today I begin my Wellness Wednesday by committing myself to taking my vitamins everyday. I'm so bad to skip them as the day gets busy and I know I would greatly benefit from doing this. I've been reading the new book by Dr's Oz and Rozen, "You, Staying Young" and am taking note of my short-comings. Thank goodness I don't smoke or drink.... although when my painting friends get together they always bring wine to taste after the day is over and I found I did have a liking to some Pinot Grigio one of the ladies brought and left at the house. LOL

My prayer for today is for health, my health and the health of others. May the blessing of God strengthen you and me today and we all feel the healing presence of Jesus Christ in our lives daily.

You have such a sweet spirit Phyllis. I enjoy starting my day with coffee and reading your blog. I like how you incorporate scripture into all of your messages and I thank you for sharing so much. I wish I had time during the week to do Wellness Wednesdays...maybe in the future. Right now my routine is very sporadic when it comes to physical fitness-academics and family responsibilities come first and by then it's too dark and cold outside!
Have a good day!
