Dear friends, I dropped the ball as far as the blogging is concerned. I am just not one to write something for publication every day for that long of a period of time.
LENT was special to me this year and different that the last 30+ years of my life in that there were no children in our home and no teaching on a child-level [since I retired from day-care and our children are adults with no grand children in site] I did share many of my materials with a young mother in our church fellowship that was blessed and shared them with her children and Sunday school class. but it was very different from hands on, teaching to heart-centered study for myself and adult relationship to the story of the death and resurrection of my Saviour. Readings were good and next year I think I will return to many more decorations and active participation in traditions and meanings in our home.
I did continue my monitoring of carbs carefully and will continue to monitor them through a lifetime - that is something the 40 day personal challenge is good for - it develops good habits and trains you in a specific area of life. I am convinced that controlling of carbs is good for my health and though I will not maintain them as low as i originally though, I will always be aware of carbs, aim at total of less than 110 and net carbs or used carbs near 70 per day. I know that I will go over that many days but I see that as good healthy goal for me at this weight and activity level and acceptability with my lifestyle and family structure.
