Late Posts do the most! And other things…

Happy Left-handers Day! As a left-hander, I gotta tell you—I wouldn’t want it any other way. It makes me special!

Here are some left-handed facts.


In the Bible, there is only one person mentioned as being LEFT-HANDED! Read his story:

“And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel, because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD. And he gathered unto him the children of Ammon and Amalek, and went and smote Israel, and possessed the city of palm trees. So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years. But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab. But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh. And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very fat man. And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present. But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him. And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee. And he arose out of his seat. And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly: and the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out. Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of the parlour upon him, and locked them. When he was gone out, his servants came; and when they saw that, behold, the doors of the parlour were locked, they said, Surely he covereth his feet in his summer chamber. And they tarried till they were ashamed: and, behold, he opened not the doors of the parlour; therefore they took a key, and opened them: and, behold, their Lord was fallen down dead on the earth. And Ehud escaped while they tarried, and passed beyond the quarries, and escaped unto Seirath. And it came to pass, when he was come, that he blew a trumpet in the mountain of Ephraim, and the children of Israel went down with him from the mount, and he before them. And he said unto them, Follow after me: for the LORD hath delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand. And they went down after him, and took the fords of Jordan toward Moab, and suffered not a man to pass over. And they slew of Moab at that time about ten thousand men, all lusty, and all men of valour; and there escaped not a man. So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land had rest fourscore years.”

Judges‬ ‭3:12-30‬ ‭KJV‬

Other things

I got up this morning after a rough night last night and decided to go to Soulard Market in Saint Louis, MO. IDK much about open air markets; Soulard was my first really big one that wasn’t randomly by the road or something by somebody house akin to a vegetable garage sale. But I LOVE the place—the energy, the options, the diversity of people and products to buy. And, with a bank account on zero? I needed a change of pace that didn’t require me to spend goo-gobs of cash or credit.


Contemplating

Change doesn’t have to be this major all encompassing event. It can be something small that boosts your serotonin and dopamine. Some sunshine, interacting with other people who are also looking to have a great time, walking for exercise…all it takes is doing this more often than you don’t and BOOM! You’ve increased your mood and altered your state of mind to a degree that will definitely lead you toward a more positive and productive outlook.

“Joy”

Enjoy your weekend! We will be back on regularly schedule posts tomorrow.
