A New Year A New Start

Well 2013 was not a banner year for me where weight loss is concerned but I am praying 2014 will be better. I did manage to lose a few pounds which is always better than gaining but I am a long way from my goal. I am starting off the year at 215 pounds which is 45 pounds less than I was in 2009. I have 75 pounds to lose to be at my goal. I know how to do it but it is so hard especially when you can't afford healthy foods. I get tired of people telling me that it is no more expensive than eating ...

I have 75 pounds to lose to be at my goal. I know how to do it but it is so hard especially when you can't afford healthy foods. I get tired of people telling me that it is no more expensive than eating the way I do but IT IS! We feed a lot of people in this house and I cannot afford to feed the whole family in a healthy manner and I cant afford to feed me healthy and then feed them what they want to eat. I am just praying I can figure out a way to do it. Also I have a grandson that loves to eat salads and veggies and I cant tell him he cant have it because it is for me. I am going to be looking for ways to eat healthy and still make everyone happy including myself.

I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

{This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }


'Twas the night before Jesus came
and all through the house
Not a creature was praying,
Not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!


(by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.
