Daily or almost daily, I post "Devotions for Dieters" from Crosswalk.com/devotionals/for dieters
Some of you 's answer daily.
Others are silent. I realize some are not interested but this is for those who are and can't find it. Some have written and said they did not know about this before.
Some teams are so kind as to make it a sticky but others get lost way down in the games or something.
Although I would do it for just one and it helps just one I would do it but it would be nice to know if you do read them.
Please just say in the comments to this blog, I read it but don't comment
Or I read it and do comment,
I didn't know about it but hunted it up and read my first one
Or I will look it up
Or I do not read it and am not interested.
Everyone who answers this will receive a goodie from me.
HAPPY VETERANS DAY TO ALL OF OUR VETERANS.
Please Thank a veteran today and if you are married to one do something very special for him today and that doesn't mean dragging him to the mall while you shop for yourself. That does not count. Do something he likes to do and maybe you don't.
I sent a poem about a husband complaining about his wife not cooking like his mother and was going to comment on it but it was so long it was a blog. So here it is.
When I married my wonderful Charles who passed away January 9, 2006 he pulled something like that on me also.
He had been married for many years before and she was a stay at home mom.
He soon began to tell me his first wife didn't make this or that the way I did and I told him I was not his first wife and didn't want to be.
He also told me he was happier with me than he had ever been in his life. I told him not to say that as he had the best of two worlds. He had three children by her but he also wanted to be in full time ministry and his wife did not want to be.
When he married me he became a full time missionary.
He did let me know from time to time how happy he was though and he was such a thoughtful man, taking care of me when I had hip replacement.
What goes around comes around so when he got Alzheimer's I had the privilege to take care of him for years and forgot to take care of myself. I would do it again though but would try to take care of myself also.
He deserved it.
Today is veteran's day and I always remember him as he was a veteran and I have a signed certificate by President George Bush thanking him for his service to our country. It is too bad they wait for them to die to give them the recognition.
Love them while you have them as you never know what tomorrow will bring.
Many of you have asked for my news letters so thought I would write it in a blog and hope you find it. This is a news-letter I just sent out to my supporters.
Hello everyone: Thank you for your continued support for the work in Mexico. God is good and we know He is more powerful than any enemy.
You wonder where the peaceful Mexico went where I used to live and drive all over without fear. We know they need the gospel of Jesus Christ more than they ever had.
The latest news I have read is they are also recruiting children as young as 11 years old on the US side of the border where I live to work for them. Children and young people are arrested expecting a better life but often finding themselves entrapped in something they can't get out of.
Sundays paper had an article about a teacher from the mid west who came to our area as her relatives were here. She tried to teach in Texas but to teach here needed more training so she substituted for awhile. Then she learned of a job of teaching English in Mexico so moved over there to pursue this. In the beginning it wasn't too bad but each year it became worse.
Finally she went to Soriana one night to shop and when she returned to her truck found it was torn apart (no doubt the steering as this happened to a truck I had years ago in a parking lot also). She called friends who came to her aid but when they got there they hear shooting in the parking lot so hid down in the floor of their vehicles for an hour afraid of what was going to happen.
She is now in the US again substitute teaching.
We still hear of shootings, of people being kidnapped, of mass graves. They have not found the brother of the lady from my Spanish Sunday School class who was kidnapped from his own home and many others have never been found.
So sad but God loves Mexico. We need to pray for our country also. I will be going to the bridge (on our side) to meet the pastors Thursday morning to do my mission work.

Today a girl friend had a b/d so I took her out to eat.
The funny thing is that a man and his mother were sitting at the table next to ours and before my g/f got there we were talking.
The lady said you are so beautiful.
Now when a man tells me that I don't believe him but when a woman tells me that is different especially if she is a stranger.
Well her birthday is tomorrow. I said my birthday is the 26th of October.
The son got up and came and showed me his driver's license. He was also born on October 26th.
Now that was a real coincidence. I talked to him about losing weight.
His mother who was diabetic had already lost weight and they had given her only a short while to live but she is 75 and still going.
He thought he was alright as he had his father's genes. His uncle on his father's side lived to be 98.
I am sure people get tired of me preaching healthy living but I told him he could still have physical problems if he did not take care of himself.
My Profession is Missionary but I am also a missionary for Spark.
I believe we need to take care of the Temple of the Lord.
