Good Grief! I just realized I haven't blogged since Christmas Eve! Well, the holidays are now all behind us, but I pray we will continue to remember the Christ of Christmas.

I won't go into all the details of everything I've been doing/done since my last blog (relax); but I have been keeping busy.

Have enjoyed some snow, and some warmer temps (well, comparably speaking warmer).

I am blessed by you all. Have a great night's rest.

Late Christmas eve

Friday, December 24, 2010

I baked a pumpkin pie this morning, followed by dozens and dozens of cookies. My DD and her sons helped me frost and decorate them. I only ate 2....I know, I already said I'd only eat one, but I was weak. Still stayed without my calorie range for the day!!!!

I've already planned on eating sensibly tomorrow, and enjoying a single glass of wine with dinner....I WILL drink only 1 glass. I may have a sliver of pie, and will enjoy another couple of cookies.

I sent several home with my DD and grandsons today, plan to send more home with them tomorrow; also with my other DD who will be coming to dinner with her DH. They all will get turkey and other leftovers to take home, too. I don't want all that food around my house...too tempting.

Time to go to emoticon now.

God bless you all richly. Remember He is the reason why we have a Christmas celebration in the first place. Read Philippians where Paul reminds us that Jesus set aside all that He is entitled to (being God and all the glory that entails) to become human, live a sinless life, die on the cross and rise again so that YOU and I can live in eternity with Him.

    We love to bake and make candies. My dil took after me and her gma for that and we give most of it away. My share went to 3 brothers and families. I did eat some raisen filled each day practically but it fit into my plan. I baked Dad an egg custard pie and us 2 pumpkin and 1 apple. It is so nice to be able to bake with my dil and gc. I know you enjoyed yours too.

I agree entirely with your last comments. Jesus gave up so much to die and we have so much to gain.......Praise the Lord! Merry Christmas Diane

'Tis the Thursday before Christmas....

Thursday, December 23, 2010

My grandsons and I will be decorating sugar cookies tomorrow, and today I checked how many calories each has.....approx. 111 withOUT frosting. emoticon emoticon I love sweets. Oh well, I'm determined to continue on a path of better health (and lower weight), so now that I have that information, I'll keep my sampling down to a reasonable amount - one.

Working at the animal shelter this morning, then coming home and cleaning house, I burned mucho calories today; and I'm tired. I took a nap this afternoon, so that helps. I'm debating whether or not to do some strength exercises, but all I want right now is to just chill. A few strength exercises won't take a lot of time, and will help tone me as well as burn calories even after I'm done. Ok, I talked myself into it. emoticon After all, one day I want to look like this emoticon Hahaha!

It makes me very happy to see a little more 'keeping Christ in Christmas' type of attitudes around me. There could be no greater gift than the gift of the Son of God coming as a human, dieing and rising again to offer me eternal life. I am so humbled at the thought that God thought that much of ME!! to provide a sacrifice so I won't go to hell when I die.

I pray you each will have 'peace on earth' and have a Merry Christmas. God bless you.

    Every time you do an exercise when you don't want to or when you resist a treat you'd like to taste, you move closer to your ultimate goal. Keep at it, one pound at a time. -- Lou

    Thanks for writing this - What's you've said is very powerful and like the words of a song I love to sing
"Let there be Peace on earth, and let it begin with me"

Devotional - ON His hands

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

I've attended a women's conference these past 2 years in Roanoak, VA. The conference is sponsored by E(xtraordinary) Women, and led by Julie Clinton. I get a weekly devotional by Julie, and would like to share from this week's.

"On His Hands
December 20, 2010

By: Julie Clinton, M.A. "… I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands…." Isaiah 49:15-16

Hands are an interesting addition to the body. They come in all different shapes, sizes and even colors. There are young hands and old hands. Smooth hands and wrinkled hands. Calloused hands and bony hands. They are used for picking things up, for cleaning (yes, the "C" word), for cooking, and for comfort. Hands can also have many misuses as well, like in cases of abuse and violence.

When we look to Jesus, His hands always bring about good. In His ministry on earth, Jesus used His hands to heal the sick. To comfort those who needed comforting. To work in His father’s carpentry shop. To hold and teach children. To confront sin and flip tables in the temple.

But that’s not all. The Word says that we’ve been engraved on His precious hands! And in the engraving process, the desired figure or artwork is burned into the product in order to make a lasting impression that cannot be removed. He remembers you—always!

You are on His hands! Notice that I said, "on" and not just "in." We so often hear that we are in His hands, but today claim His promise that you cannot be removed!

Dear Lord, Thank you for dying for me on the cross. Thank you that I can have salvation by believing in you. I am so happy to know that I am forever on your hands and not just in your hands. Use my hands today to direct someone to you! Amen.

    My minister aunt pointed something out to me the other day -- we have 10 fingers (and thumbs) and there are 10 words in "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." So when we hold our hands up in joy and celebration we can be reminded of that passage. -- Lou
