If he worried he hid it. <BR> He started to sing as he tackled the thing <BR> That couldn't be done, and he did it. <BR> <BR> Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that; <BR> At least no one ever has done it"; <BR> But he took off his coat and he took of...

Fri, 22 Apr 2011 20:25:29 EST Paid in Full http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4086562 After living what I felt was a 'decent' life, my time on earth came to the end. <BR> <BR> The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought to be a court house. <BR> <BR> The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the defense table. <BR> <BR> As I looked around I saw the 'prosecutor.' <BR> <BR> He was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me. He definitely was the most evil person I have ever seen. <BR> <BR> I... Sat, 12 Mar 2011 15:28:13 EST Starting Over http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3118841 I've thought about it, and I've decided to start over. I have not been doing well with my nutrition tracking, and my portion size is too much. So I haven't been losing weight. Plus I've been leaving a trail of ups and downs because I haven't been trying hard enough to be consistent. <BR> Now I have new goals, and I am going to keep my eyes on them and reach forward. With God's help I can reach them. Wed, 14 Apr 2010 13:10:59 EST What is My Objective in Life? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2939465 "When money is our objective, we must live in fear of losing it, which makes us paranoid and suspicious. When fame is our aim, we become competitive lest others upstage us, which makes us envious. When power and influence drive us, we become self-serving and strong-willed, which makes us arrogant. All these pursuits fly in the face of contentment and joy." <BR> "Only Christ can satisfy, whether we have or don't have, whether we are known or unknown, whether we live or die." (Charles Swind... Sun, 28 Feb 2010 18:28:34 EST 2010 Resolutions http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2704109 I think it's a good idea to let you all know what my resolutions are for this year. Here they are: <BR> <BR> 1. Lose 50 pounds. I know it's possible. <BR> <BR> 2. Get out of credit card debt, and stay out of it. Try not to use the cards. <BR> <BR> 3. Get more hours of sleep each night. Watch less TV. <BR> <BR> 4. Do not eat any chips or candy for the whole year. They are foods that I don't need and I need to get out of the habit of even thinking about them. <BR> <BR> 5. Read... Wed, 6 Jan 2010 13:07:45 EST Climb Every Mountain http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2554080 It's not easy to climb a mountain. <BR> As a child, I would follow my father up and down big hills when we would go hiking in order to get to mines where rocks and minerals could be found if you searched in the right places. He would set a steady pace, and I would follow along. Some climbs took a long time, and I thought we would never get to the place where we could stop and look. But it was always worth the effort when I found an amethyst crystal or a watermelon tourmaline. <BR> Later, a... Wed, 11 Nov 2009 17:57:33 EST Potato Chips http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2542326 There's a bag of potato chips in my cupboard. I bought it last night to go with a tuna sandwich. <BR> Every Friday night, some of my friends and I get together to chat and just have a good time. Each of us brings our own bag lunch, and sometimes we share. I figured that I would share my chips with the others. However, one of the ladies had brought a bag and it was already open. So I wound up bringing my bag home. <BR> And it's in the cupboard.... <BR> I want to leave it there, unopen... Sat, 7 Nov 2009 15:54:28 EST
