Eye of the Storm



Eye of the Storm
In the eye of the storm
You remain in control
And in the middle of the war
You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor
When my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me 
In the eye of the storm
When the solid ground is falling out from underneath my feet
Between the black skies, and my red eyes, I can barely see
When I realize I've been sold out by my friends and my family
I can feel the rain reminding me
In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me 
In the eye of the storm
Mmm, when my hopes and dreams are far from me
And I'm runnin' out of faith
I see the future I picture slowly fade away
And when the tears of pain and heartache 
Are pouring down my face
I find my peace in Jesus' name
In the eye of the storm (yeah, yeah)
You remain in control (yes you do, Lord)
In the middle of the war
You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor
When my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me (Your love surrounds me) 
In the eye of the storm (in the eye of the storm)
When the test comes in and the doctor says 
I've only got a few months left
It's like a bitter pill I'm swallowing
I can barely take a breath
And when addiction steals my baby girl
And there's nothing I can do
My only hope is to trust You
I trust You, Lord
In the eye of the storm (yeah, yeah)
You remain in control
In the middle of the war (middle of the war)
You guard my soul (yeah!)
You alone are the anchor
When my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me (yeah!)
In the eye of the storm
You remain in control (yes you do, Lord)
In the middle of the war (in the middle of the war)
You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor
When my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me
In the eye of the storm
Oh, in the eye of
Lord, in the eye of the storm
I know You're watching me, yeah
Ay
When the storm is raging (when the storm is raging)
And my hope is gone (and my hope is gone, Lord)
When my flesh is failing
You're still holding on, oh whoa
When the storm is raging (the storm is raging)
And my hope is gone (and all my hope is gone)
When my flesh is failing (my flesh is failing)
You're still holding on, ooh
When the storm is raging (when the storm is raging)
And my hope is gone (and my hope is gone)
Even when my flesh is failing (flesh is failing)
You're still holding on, holding on
The Lord is my Shepherd
I have all that I need
He let's me rest in green meadows
He leads me beside peaceful streams
He renews my strength
He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to His Name
Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid
For You are close beside me

Rubbing tired feet with Castor oil

Few weeks ago, I almost got a foot blister from running/walking. When I got home I rubbed it with castor oil. I have no idea if it's going to work or not. The next morning my foot was fine. The blister that was forming hardened up. Castor oil works!
My feet are tired tonight and another spot is about to get blistered so I'm rubbing it with castor oil right now. Hopefully tomorrow it'll be alright.

Quinoa everyday



I love quinoa (keen-wah) I ate it at least twice a day. It sure is better than rice. A low-GI, a complete protein source, a good source for vitamins, minerals, and fiber. It also has all nine amino acids. Quinoa is a mother of all grains.
Below is my post from 2015.

Pack Testing for Fire Familiarization training

To be a wildland firefighter type 2 crew you must passed the Arduous Pack Test. Meaning you have to carry 45lbs for 3 miles in less than 45 minutes. Not only you have to passed the mandatory training but also be physically fit.
I'm going to be in Fire Familiarization training next month. I will experience being a wildland Firefighter and get familiarize with the fire . I have most of the mandatory training done. But I still need to go through physical exam as well as pack testing. I've been training and I need to do better. I got my boots and I've started breaking them in by walking 3 miles every day. I'm so excited!
