Day 29 of 40: Another Biopsy…But Stronger Still

Today is Day 29 of 40.

What if we did this for today?  But what if we did it for 40 days?!

{If you’ve heard my rant about this then scroll passed this to today’s account below the (*******) line}

Our goal for 40 days is to strengthen and nourish our spirit, soul and body.  Sounds so sophisticated and a little boring to me…  but what if it got kind of specific…  and…  what if it kind of worked?!!?

We create (Do you need the definition too?  Because I did!  So I looked it up for us!)

create:  (verb)  cause (something) to happen as a result of one’s actions

This drives me to become aware of what I am actually creating.  I’m REEEAAALLY good at creating a grumpy attitude, a negative outlook on life, an overwhelming feeling, 30 extra pounds, irrational thinking….  I am just one talented woman.  You too?  {Big sigh}

But what if we became more intentional about what we were creating each day?!

What if we did these three things each day?!

  1. Create conversations with God by talking to Him (prayer) and/or studying the Bible. 
  2. Create smiles, memories, feelings, giggles, and moments with people by taking the time to stop and be in the moment.
  3. Create fuel for our body with the foods we choose.

For my own life, I notice that I start going into a spiral of the “blues” then slowly but surely off track when I start hiding from God, from people and hiding IN my pantry….  {Anyone else do that too?!}


Today’s Life with Jamye

Day 29 of 40.

There are days that challenge you and put your “soul endurance,” or strength rather, to the test.  Today was one of those days.

1. {Spirit}

I was able to get 7 hours of sleep last night before Benjamin woke up for an early feeding at 4:30.  Wahoo!!!  I stayed up and went ahead and spent time with God this morning while Robert went to Crossfit.  Big win!  I felt rested too.  That said, I’m EXHAUSTED tonight!

2. {Soul-Mind, Will, & Emotions}

It was my appointment for the skin cancer on my ear.  This was a new dermatologist.  I really liked my old dermatologist.  This new one will just take time for me.  😉  While there, they looked at a newer spot on my arm.  Now that I know what to look for, I asked them to take a look.  They did.  Then they biopsied it.

I had two of the three kiddos with me.  I would have never have brought the kiddos to a biopsy.  But since this one was unexpected, I found myself in a place where I was actually a lot stronger than I realized!  See??!!! This 40 day journey is working!  I did the biopsy, didn’t cry like a baby (even though I just had saline injections and not real numbing)…and I was okay!!  It’s amazing how much stronger you get as you face each and every obstacle.

{Here are a few of our dermatologist shenanigans!}


So now we just pray that this skin biopsy on my right arm is clear!  No skin cancer in Jesus’ name!

The rest of the day was full but beautiful.  Because of the emotional strength used during the appointment this morning, I realized that I was HUNGRY, actually HANGRY, all day long.  But I stayed on track.

My daughters and I practiced “fake smiles” with our cheeks until we felt it in our hearts.  It actually worked.  We all got the giggles.  Hee Hee.  Try it right now.  Lift your cheeks all the way to your eyes and squeeze.  Hahahaha.  Doesn’t that just make you happy?!  Practice a smile right now.  1-2-3 go!
