ENJOYING LIFE !

Friday, April 08, 2011

I really love living and i feel sorry for people that constantly are dwelling on the Lord coming back and taking them out of this old wicked world they just can't wait. I ask them why do you go to the doctor if you are in such a hurry most of them they get a shock at reality ! I know this world is wicked and trust me i have my trials and tribulations with family sickness and my own issues to deal with but if you read back in the Bible when a woman or man committed adultry they got stoned to death ! All the deciples each one had their own stories about being beat ship wrecked ect ect but Paul and Silas still was singing in jail ! I always wondered what they were singing. Recently DH and i learned a new song called "THERE AIN'T NOTHING BETTER THAN JESUS " emoticon I would like to think they might have sang that but AMAZING GRACE was probably one of their songs ! emoticon All around us people are suffering and poor but Jesus told us those we will always have with us. It's good to prepare the best we can for the future but when it takes our happiness away for today that's not good. If i had a million dollars which i don't have much of lifes goods i could spend it on others that really have needs in this life in a very short time and have a ball doing it. If i got a bowl of soup my neighbor in need will get 1/2 of it if he's really in need.I am sick very sick all my arteries are over 80% blocked but i am happy very happy cause i know the Lord. I don't have much in material things like the rest of you just get by but God makes a way for me to share what i have with the less fortunate. One of my lifes goals is to reach out to the appalachin children with hats and gloves each year. I am cold natured and know what being cold is and i love to send some hats and gloves to the children thru a church we go to . This year at the end of the season i found them on sale for a 25 cents apiece some were hats and gloves some just hats but God multiplied what i could get for them when they were normally 2 to 3 dollars each . THATS JUST GOD ! Oh how i wish people could see what life is all about . This jouney called LIFE is great ! If i could be born in this world with no sickness and live my days to be 100 years old and not experience walking with the Lord i wouldn't even consider it. Back to losing weight God gave us these temples to take care of and it's took me many of years on fad dumb diets because i didn't know any better to find the answer to my weight issue ! EAT RIGHT and for most exercise but i can't and i am not complaining i am just thankful to do what i can. Being skinny isn't important being healthy is ! Try your best daily to make it a good day ! LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT ! THE LORD WANTS US TO BE HAPPY ! emoticon

WHY DO I STAY ON SPARKPEOPLE ?

Thursday, April 07, 2011

This site does take some time but i have found it is time well invested. I can't physically exercise but reading the info articles the blogs and message boards help me to focus on taking better care of myself and even tho i don't get much response to the blogs i do i feel it helps me to put how i feel down in writing.I have lost my weight basically about 6 months ago but i want to help others accomplish their goals like others were and are here for me ! I couldn't have done it without the Lords help and sparkpeople site and sparkfriends cheering me on . I also realise alot of people don't read my blogs because of the religious aspect of it but that's ok thats who i am and i don't force my believes on anyone else i feel thats each persons choice in life but i am thankful i am a christian and i love the Lord and he comes first in my life . IF I CAN HELP ANYONE THAT IS ON THIS SITE I AM HERE DAILY AND WOULD LOVE TO HELP IF I CAN. DON'T GIVE UP YOU GOT NOTHING TO LOSE HERE BUT WEIGHT ! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Amen my friend, I just wrote a similar blog about all the positive things about SP, in 2 days I celebrate 9 months as a member. I encourage you to read my latest blog, "count down".

Like you I am a Born Again Christian. I've walked with Jesus since 1977, to be more precise, August 15, 1977 I gave my heart and life to Jesus, my life has been radically changed for His Glory...

Great Blog Posting, Keep Shining for Jesus, I stand with you praying and supporting you. Love Hugs and God Bless..

SOY NUTS TRY THEM YOU MIGHT LIKE IT !

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

One of the ladys on spark put me wise to the crunchy roasted nut last month and now they are in my life forever ! emoticon When i read her article about soy nuts i looked up the nutritional info . They are great for iron vitamin B protein your heart ect ect . You can put "ARE SOY NUTS HEALTHY FOR YOU ? for your web search i am sure you will be pleased. These little nuts are about half the size of a pea. I bought the roasted ones and for 3 tablespoons there is 130 calories ! Thats alot of nuts unless you just throw them in your mouth by the handsful and nothing tast any better that way than 3-5 of them at a time of something that little. Anyway i bought an 8 oz box at Wal-Mart having a total of 1,040 calories in them and set them on the computer desk ! Along with my monkeys and LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT Sign ! emoticon I got them on March 20th and i have just made a dent in them so i figure i might finish them by April 30th which will by 40 days and that adds up to 25 calories a day for something crunchy and healthy that i enjoy ! When i do my 1200 calories a day and run around 1,000 i add 130 calories for soynuts so i will be counting for them in the long run ! Hope this helps you it sure did me ! Also dried prunes are something i have added to my diet. At 25 calories each they are healthy and sweet when you want something sweet. Before i quit sweets for Lent i always ate a hershy kiss or two before i head to bed now i eat a prune ! emoticon I really enjoy it more than the chocholate ! THATS SCARRY ! emoticon Anyway i usually eat 2-3 aday but always eat 2 and without the sweets i am getting where i don't have so many mood swings and it feels good! emoticon I am thinking about after the 40 days which will be April 18 th of going off sweets till May 18th. The only thing i am missing right now is Bush's bake beans they have brown sugar in them and are soooooooooooo good. I usually eat 1/4 cup along with other things for supper but i haven't had them since Lent started! Have a great day ! emoticon

    It's amazing how the small things add up....we just have to keep doing the "small" things. And I've had 2 rules for living for a long time:

1. Don't sweat the small stuff
2. EVERYTHING is small stuff!

That kinda relates more to stress, but you see how my mind works.....or maybe if you do understand how my mind works, that's another scary thing!! I'm rambling this morning....have a super day! emoticon

WHAT THE 3 MONKEYS HAVE TO SAY ?

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

I wrote an article on my team GOD ANSWERS PRAYER that i would like to share with you . I believe it is worth repeating so here it goes ! Next to my computer i have a sign that simply says LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT ! Pretty well boils our life down in 6 words! I have met people young that have lost their legs in accident. Know a blind girl about 20 that lives on her own with alittle help.They could have chosen to hide and not do anything with their lives but are go getters. We either take what we got to work with and do our best or ruin our lives and others around us. Also i got a statue of 3 monkeys on the same desk. One has his hand over his mouth representing SPEAK NO EVIL ! My what a world this would be if no one spoke evil about the other but our world can change if we don't speak evil. I am trying my best to make whatever comes out of my mouth be POSITIVE . Wow this sure does keep me on my toes ! But i can feel peace in my soul when i do that and it is worth investing the time of reprogramming myself ! Then the second monkey has his hands over his eyes representing SEE NO EVIL ! That's a tough one in a world of anything goes . Alot of time it's even crept into the church world . But what we speak and what we see is up to us. DH and i like detective shows and when we search them out and the girls are dressed really skimpy or they use fowl language we turn the channel and say remind me not to turn to that one again ! Other ones are educational and have happy endings we watch. I want to add that i feel SPARKPEOPLE is a God sent. I have been here for 16 months and have only come across 1 blog that was totally out of order about the subject and reported it and it was taken off. I come across one that the language was fowl and i really liked this persons blogs they were very informitive so i wrote her and told her that and told her i wanted to continue to read them could she please tone down the language . She did and i continue to read them. I can get on this site without worring about corrupting my mind and i appreciate that ! GOOD JOB SPARK AND SPARKFRIENDS ! The third monkey has his ears covered with his hands not just one but both ! If we Keep our conversations positive and watch good things and not currupt our minds the hearing part is easy. If someone is speaking garbage to you open your mouth and tell them you want to talk about good things happy things there is enough bad things in this world without talking and listening to things you don't have to. I always thought there should be that 4 th monkey with his hand on his head to represent GOD PROTECT MY MIND FROM EVIL but if we let the one with his mouth covered the one with his eyes covered and the one with his ears covered teach us the right path to follow GOD WILL COVER OUR MINDS there will be no need for the fourth monkey ! HOPE THIS MESSAGE HELPS YOU LIKE IT HAS SPOKEN TO MY HEART HAVE A GREAT DAY !

    Great Post!
I've seen one of these sets of monkeys that included a fourth monkey. One with it's hands folded in front of it in prayer that was labeled FEAR NO EVIL.

    I really liked this blog today. It made me think about the contribution I give to society and the impression I give to people, especially the one's closest to me. Sometimes we are nicest to those furthest from us, but we tend to treat those closest to us a little more personally. Not with evil intent, but it does come out meanly. It make me think. Thanks.

I have found this to be one of the best places to share support,motivation and prayers. The three monkey's for many years have represented good against evil, and I like looking and thinking about the so many ways we can change our lives for the better by looking toward God for guidance!
Thanks for the wonderful post!

ONLY I CAN CHANGE MY LIFE !

Monday, April 04, 2011

ONLY I CAN CHANGE MY LIFE NO ONE CAN DO IT FOR ME ! I read this on one of the message boards today and it hit home ! I know i have made up my mind to change the things i can about my life that doesn't make me happy and the things i can't change i give them to the Lord to guide me how he wants me to handle them . God is good no matter how tough life gets and it's not what we have to deal with but it's how we deal with it that makes the difference . Went shopping and bought me a new kitchen rug with roosters on it and a rack to put my spices in . It is dreary and raining here but the Son is shinning in my heart ! Have a great day !
