So Nice & Toasty. . . .

Monday, October 18, 2010

What a wonderful weekend it was! I mean Saturday was like blah but Sunday was a really wonderful!! I had a awesome time at church & the hubby grilled enough chicken, steak & salmon for the rest of the week! Its like we will be having high end KFC on a budget for lunch & dinner. I am sure my oldest will have steak & salmon for lunch at school. lol My spirit is still reeling from the Word about the "anointing." My, was it a meaty sermon where the spirit was upon (up on) Mary when the angel of the Lord told her about her & her favor with God! Her question like many of us, "how can this be?" when you know of the greatness of our God!! He can do anything but we sit & wonder how & when? So when we get with God & know His will for us then we can stop questioning or trying to reason with Him. God's will be done, not our own! WOOHOO!! Amen.

Anyway, it was a little toasty today so I turned the heat on. I thought after it reached the 73degrees it would shut itself off. But as with most of the things in my house they never work the way I want to them to. Especially when hubby isn't there they appliances just won't act right. So it was nice & toasty but I did get 30mins of step aerobics & 15mins for lifting furniture trying to help my son find his key. I told him he would not leave the house until he found that stupid key. I took a day off last week to run errands specifically for him, so yeah, he gone be late finding that key. He is so lazy & its a struggle getting him to do what he is supposed to be doing. He hates being late for school so he moved a little. I eventually made him go through his dirty clothes again & BAM, the key fell into his hands.

A womans work is NEVER done!! I think its nap time but I am up & bubbly & full of joy!!!

How is your Monday going?!!

God bless & enjoy everyday!!

    I always work a 13 hour shift on Mondays. Still I find time to spark. We started out with a busy morning but then kind of died down this afternoon. Focusing on Church has been so hard lately. Only a few months ago I was a great Christian Woman, then I fell into some sin. Now I am trying to seek forgiveness and get back on the path of Jesus again. I know that we have a forgiving God and he loves me. Great is the Lord!! Hope your week to come is just as awesome as your weekend. Happy Sparking!!

    LOL girl you son sounds like my older son. He is so laid back and my middle son is much organized and balanced somewhat. I wish I could concentrate more during worship service but I content with my boy who is special needs, he loves to dance with the music and repeat what he hears from the pastor. I have not found much love in the so called church because of this. We went to a church and I always give him candy to help keep him quiet. The other kids around us wants his candy. So I brought some stickers to give them. Now I have started something. LOL! So We go where now we are received with love or at least let alone. I know God will not hold it to my charge. He knows what we are against and knows our hearts. The anointing destroys the yoke.

My hubbie took the week off and he is finding projects for me to do. When all I want to do is sit down. He is a cleaning freak. I am tired already after tomorrow we gonna talk. emoticonBe blessed this day.

    So glad you had a great weekend! Wow, you are SET for the week with meat. emoticon It sounds as if church was a powerful time of blessing.

It's good that your son had to be find his own keys. When you require him to be responsible, think of it as a gift to his future wife! Heehee.

Thanks for the Sparkgoodie--I LOVE fruit! Yum.

I Feel Good. . . .

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Got up late but I refused to just look at the tv & indulge in one of my treats. Which is laying in bed while I watch tv or it watches me. I dragged myself up & put on workout clothes. I then stretched & took a sip of water. I looked out the window & saw trucks parked on my side of the street (directly in front of my door) today is street cleaning. So I put on my shoes & moved my truck to the other side. Then I asked my oldest son did he walk Shadow? Well he got up late. Feeling sorry that he will be shut in for the next 4hours I took him on a 6block walk.

He liked that a lot! Then I got home & remember I was very lazy last night & didn't wash the dishes. YIKES!!!!

So while I was in the kitchen & I have a tv in the dining room so I had room to start washing dishes. Then when All Star Workouts came on I did Kickboxing & when commercials came on I finished the dishes. lol So I was busy but I still need another workout so I will shoot for tonight?

Today, I had a twinkie & milk for breakfast. I needed something quick & that was really quick. I had a hand full of cashews for a snack & my new found go to snack:

carmel hard candies. . . . I tried them a few years ago but could never remember which one I had? Then I found them & I have those when I want to have something that's not good for me. For lunch I had a HUGE salad w/low fat dressings. For a snack I had campbells low sodium brown rice, chicken & vegetables w/keebler crackers. I'm making chili dogs w/cheese for the boys. At least by me cooking them I will know what's in them. They're not healthy but the boys need a junk food night. They have been eating my baked chicken & spaghetti all week & its GONE!! So this is for them. I will have a PB&J on honey wheat & a cup of frozen (then cooked) green beans. lol

I am bit long winded today but I be shorter next time. . . Promise. . .

God bless & I pray you are all feelin good today about your accomplishments BIG or small!!

On my end, I'm cutting WAY back on sugar, & suddenly I'm losing weight again! Just sayin'. emoticon

I'm Still Here. . . .

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

So I'm still here & have joy inspite of what has transpired & what I've been through. I know that I have things that I go through & I am not happy 100% of the time but let me tell you people know when I'm going through cause I'm not smiling. lol We all have those times but I meditate & know that He is whispering to me, "peace be still." I don't worry that I'm alone in this cause people in my life & on spark, they got me. Meaning that you guys uplift me & I in turn do the same. So yes I got more bills than money. I'm doing what I can do to make. Meaning, I'm leaning on the everlasting arm! WOOHOO! So the kids don't understand what you get paid verses their needs, the house needs, card needs but still I'm here. Not unhappy about cause I know He is working it out for me & you. We just have to have faith & trust in God. Sounds simply but its hard too.

So don't be afraid & some times we have to do it in fear.

Today, I'm doing upper body & step aerobics & walking. So what are you doing to get away from what ails/worry you?

God bless & enjoy Tuesday!

I'm going keep my mind off of stuff that may hinder my Joy. Can't change it by taking thought like He said in Matthew 6 so I will not. I love the sun and blue skies and marvel at His Glory on this earth and in us. He is so Faithful. I'm going to be faithful to Him. We are a blessed Nation because of the many freedoms we have. Thank God! emoticon emoticon

    I understand completely. Been there, still there.....actually.
But each and every time I go thru something, I learn to lean more and more on God - and I am taken care of! He will get us thru anything. I also find it wonderful at the support I have got on here - much needed & appreciated!
You have much support here! Thanks for supporting me as well - your comments were very helpful to me personally.

    Yep, I've got money troubles too--but yes, God is sufficient & abounds in steadfast love! He is good ALL the time. Over time, though your kids want more stuff now, they will see God's faithfulness to your family, & it will build their faith. That happened with mine.

Getting up & exercising energetically for half an hour this morning helped me deal with worries. And praying, of course!

Have a fabulous day.

It's Monday . . . .

Monday, October 11, 2010

Its Monday & all in all Sparkfam, it hasn't been too bad. Actually its been real slow. I was on the phone & I was yawning & didn't even know it. Today its been like watching paint dry but I am so happy that it will be time to go. The kids had the day off so my daughter took my youngest & her son to Chuckie Cheese. They are having fun & I don't have to worry about taking them out when I get home to stretch their legs. I can do my step aerobics & ab workout & then stretch lightly afterwards.

I know that they have reports that say Monday is the day you are likely to have a accident, have a bad attitude or bad day but I actually am loving this gorgeous day! So how did your Monday go?

God bless Sparkfam!

    Well Dee had a great Monday and then I fell asleep before finished posting last night. lol emoticon. My body was recovering from going to sleep late and waking early this past weekend. Plus my back was hurting so I needed the rest. So Monday was a beautiful sunny day...although they reported thunderstorms. emoticon I'm glad the children had the day off here too but the neighborhood was quiet and couldn't tell. Maybe they were all at our public library a block away. Blessings!

    Lovely that you have some schedule space to fill with something fun for you & the hubby!

I'm going out to eat with some neighbors tonight--we decided we need to get to know each other better, which I think is very cool. We can walk to a great little Persian restaurant in our neighborhood--it's one of my favorites.

Tomorrow morning I'm doing a presentation to fellow editors out in the burbs (I'm being paid for it, so that's cool!), & afterward I'll have lunch with my sister, taking advantage of being in her neck of the woods. Once I get home I'll get back to working hard on a freelance project for a few hours. I have a Japanese film to watch in the evening, Departures--it looks really good.

On Sunday, church & a bit of tidying up at home, then I hope to take a long walk in this gorgeous weather!

Happy weekend to you, Dee! emoticon
