Little Girl Lost. . . .Found

Monday, April 05, 2010

What a wonderful & blessed we had yesterday! The day started off a little cloudy but the sun actually started to shine but noon. The kids were out in the suits playing & showing off like we used to do as kids. The church lots were filled & me & mine made it early & had fellowship & it was emoticon to be in the presence of the Lord.

Of course, I cooked up a storm, beef short ribs, baked honey ham, baked chicken, turnip/mustard greens, yams, spaghetti (left over), corn bread turkey stuffing & dinner rolls. I didn't do breakfast so the smells coming from the kitchen co-mingling together had the dog's mouth watering! lol We had a wonderful dinner & spent time with each other, laughing, joking & just being close together.

The hubby decided to go see Why Did I Get Married 2. Well I hate going to the movies but one of my goals is to come out of comfortable skin. It was a Easter & Sunday with combination it was too crowded. So once we were inside, I couldn't believe so many people brought their young children to see this movie. My hubs wanted to leave but I wouldn't let him cause it was his ideal & I was out & not up to do again another day. The movie was good, Tosha was gettin on my last nerve, her mouth moving a million miles a minute but the plot was decent. So we left & it was raining. So we got outside & I was wearing my 4in boots so I ready to get home. Well there was this sweet little angel, came up to me & held my hand & said, she was lost. She couldn't find her people. She didn't know her phone number or what movie they were going to see. I told my feet, "Peace!" & they walked her back inside to security. My hubs didn't want to just leave her, so we waited & 2minutes here comes her family. Now answer me this, why were they inside & she was running around outside approaching people? Anyone could've snatched her up! I was sick to my stomach! Then I think of myself not much bigger than her, when I walked some 16blocks from church to my house. Why? Cause I thought my mom left me. Yes, the police were called & I was celebrated instead of punished. Thank God for my mother. . . . . .

God bless & Happy Manic Monday!

    God bless your husband for suggesting the movies and you making him stay after getting there. God's plans always work out for those who listen to His voice for you were there for the right reason and that child did not come a victim on such a wonderful day as Resurrection Day. God bless you for allowing your Light to shine for your family and those you do not know. You are blessing and I am so proud to know you even if it's only on Spark. You continue to allow you Light to shine for Jesus.

I Feel Pretty . . .

Friday, April 02, 2010

Its another gorgeous day here in the city of Chicago, so me & my Shadow went walking down the avenue. lol We created quite a stir but we kept high stepping. emoticon emoticon emoticon So do you see that beautiful edible arrangement in the pic above? Well even though it was my off day, I actually received this at the office today! emoticon emoticonDid I tell you guys that I feel pretty today? lol Anyway, I order food for our meetings & classes, so there was an individual observing lent so I tried to make sure I ordered pasta fettuccine & soup. Well he wanted to pay me cash for ordering special for him but I believe in fasting & giving up things for lent so I told him it wasn't necessary. Well, I guess he went above & beyond & bought me this edible bouquet. I got the call this morning & man, I almost jumped out of my skin! I kept wondering who is Humburto? Well, no good deed goes unnoticed. I try to be nice even when I'm impatient. We never know who's watching us. Amen.

Today, did loads of walking, QFC, yoga stretches & weights.

What did you do for someone else today? Share.

God bless & Enjoy Good Friday!

    Dee, that sounds wonderful.........Your pretty so, it's good that your feeling good in your own skin.

Since Monday is my Taylor's birthday........I have all the teenagers over right now as I type. Taylor is doing the birthday thing for the next two weeks, so she has a house full right now.......but what I've done today is talk to all the girls about not putting their heart out their so soon while they are so young. A few were depressed because they don't have dates for junior or senior prom........I somehow was able to tell them that they have their whole lives ahead of them.....these young men are not serious.....and they shouldn't be so serious at 16, 17 & that's my Good Friday. Can you believe that I'll have a 17 year old......where has the time gone.....LOL

Stay feeling oh so pretty.....that's what happens when your beautiful on the inside.

So today is a GORGEOUS day here in Chicago & I have to say that I am not going outside til its time to go. Or I won't come back to work. lol So how did everyone do yesterday? I did okay but I did eat fruit snacks but not 500 calories worth.

I walked Shadow this morning, tonight I will do yoga practices, some tae bo moves, tricep dips & wash emoticonShadow. I have the time since, I watch way too much tv.

I pray you guys have a wonderful Thursday & if there's something you need to be doing, DO IT NOW!

Life is for sharing. . .

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

I learn everyday that life is sharing & I enjoy sharing it with you guys! Today, me & Shadow did the do around 6 blocks & he was so happy to get out & strut his stuff it wasn't even funny. I thanked the Lord for all His grace, mercy & beauty in this world & the many blessings He has given me.

So that being said, I just want to thank each & everyone of you guys for your daily support. You guys are the BEST! I pray for you in my prayers & that with all that is going on that we still send love out & receive love back in. I love you all & let's keep making it happen. Changing our minds & lives & hearts then we are new creatures. . . .

Here are few new changes I want to implement today!
1. Read the Word & pray always
2. Stay away from Red Vines & Swedish Fish
3. Go back to my 60min cardio workouts 4x a week
4. Eat more fruits & veggies
5. Get 7+ hours sleep every night
6. Be a good listener & friend
7. Come out of seclusion
8. Have fun!
9. Try not to eat when I am NOT hungry
10. Dance, dance, dance. . . . .

God bless & Happy Hump Day!

Now dance!

    Mmmm, red vines and Swedish fish. I know what you mean. I have to get that kind of temptation out of the house, or I will eat it. Even plain crackers. I love them, and can eat a whole row. Those stay out of my house, too.
Great job, Dee!!!!!

Say Yes. . . .

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

This song says it all. This part of my devotional & get up & go song for the day. I hope someone receives a word from it & presses on. . . .

Today, I walked 30mins this morning, did Namaste Yoga, working on my Quick Fire & will walk an additional 30mins tonight. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonI am just plum tired. . .

I need to eat foods that give me energy, any suggestions?!

God bless & Happy Tuesday! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonDee

    Apples with peanut butter. Love them for a nice pick me up snack.

Also, Gatorade or propel tends to help me, since I have issues with my electrolyte absorption. The extras just help me get over the slump so to speak.

Or, maybe you just need a day of rest? You are always going, doing so much. Perhaps your body is just saying it needs a day off?

Have a great week!

    good foods will eventually give you great energy
I find that the begining part

when we firt start out the body starts to detox itself

good foods and a balance of them
measured out eventually give you the better energy

have a great day
keep up the good work
