. . . . And this too shall pass.

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Good Morning!
Yesterday was a trial. DS#4 decided to raise up his rebellious head and do his own thing. It didn't work out too well for him. There are consequences for actions. Today, we will continue to deal with the those consequences. Life us up and down; full of hills and valleys. When we go through the trials, we don't walk alone, God is with us. We can learn from our mistakes; we can go stronger from them. Even though it is not me who is choosing to rebel, God is using the situation to grow me in my faith and help me to react and live in a manner that glorifies Him. So, as we ride the rapids with our children, we keep our eyes on the horizon, because we know we can make it through to the calm waters and have smooth sailing!

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

    Depending on how old DS#4 is and what the consequences are should guide you as a parent on how much to help. I do not giving what is sometimes termed "tough love" but I know that it can be a great teacher. You are certainly spot on in letting Him guide you.
Blessings and prayers.

    Being a mother takes you on paths sometimes that are difficult but to have a heavenly father that sees us through those times is wonderful. We may not always have the strength to face those challenges but those are the times that he carries us. God Bless you!

    Amazingly, I learned more about God and about my relationship with Him when I became a mother. Such lessons are sometimes painful. I am so thankful for a forgiving Father! Have a blessed Easter!

Celebrating Easter and a walk down memory lane

Monday, March 25, 2013

Good Morning!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was outstanding! Saturday, I cleaned, baked, and prepared for our Sunday Easter celebration. Sunday, we started the day with an inspiring worship service and then in the afternoon, we had our family Easter celebration. Our table was laden with delicious food and most of our immediate family was gathered around. It was a joyful remembrance of the price that was paid for our salvation. Jesus paid it all and I am so thankful!
After dinner, one of my DSs dug out the old VHS tapes of their childhood years. What a hoot!!! We laughed until our sides were aching! Oh those darling, mischievous children! Where did all of those years and fun times disappear to? It seems like yesterday our home was full of children's laughter and tears. What a schedule we kept with all 5 of them in sports, piano, guitar, church activities . . . . It was a wonderful walk down memory lane!

P.S. Did I mention that is snowed? emoticon

    I have transfered mine onto a CD. They are a riot. I never thought my house would ever by empty with 8 kids. But they are all grown up and gone, but most are not too far away. One son lives with me while he is going to school.

Time goes by so quickly!

I wish you well on your journey to better health this week

Happy Friday

Friday, March 22, 2013

Happy Friday! Are you doing the Happy Friday Dance! Woo Hoo!! I am!!!

Today is a busy one, so I need to keep moving. After a quick workout and shower, I'm off to do the school carpool. Next, I plan to donate blood, and then it's one to Bible Study. Lunch will be out with a friend and then back to school for a meeting. By then, school will be out and DS#4 will pack up his stuff for an overnight.

One of the great things about Friday is: IT'S DATE NIGHT! Hubby and I haven't made plans yet . . I let him do the planning and surprise me!

Have a great day Friends!

Wouldn't it be nice . . .

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Good Morning!

Not much going on today. Yes, it is STILL cold, -2 this morning is the wind chill. It's a stay at home morning for me. Thursday is the only day of the week that I don't have to be out the door and be somewhere. I can take a little extra time with my workout and it is also "weigh-in." day for one of my challenge groups. emoticon I've been exercising regularly this week, but some unhealthy choices have found their way into my mouth. Like, what was I thinking when I made brownies over the weekend? Just because the boys were all here . . . did they say, "Hey mom, make some of your delicious, fudgy brownies?". NO!! And the chips and salsa? Did I really have to obey the voice that said, "Oh, go ahead. You can eat just one chip!"? I turned a deaf ear to the one that was SHOUTING: STEP AWAY FROM THE CHIPS AND SALSA! So. . . . who knows what the scale will say. Too bad all of those fruits and veggies can't cancel out the bad stuff I ate. Would that be something? Eat a brownie, then eat 3 serving of fruit and veggies to cancel out the effects of the brownie. Even exchange! Doesn't that sound like a great thing to you? LOL!!!

As my daughter always use to say on Thursdays, 'Happy Friday Eve!" Hope you have a terrific day!

    KMICHA I made a couple of those mistakes this week too. Funny how innocent it all seems at first until you get weighed and then it all comes back to you, "Oh yes, now I remember why the weight is up."
Don't worry you will be fine. You do a lot of exercise. Just do a little extra.

    Diet is not always about denail, but about portion control and awareness of what you are consuming.
Diet is not: "I can NEVER have a cookie"
It is: "I can ONLY have A cookie"
