Pressing on to reach my goals

Wednesday, November 04, 2009      5 comments

I am feeling good today. The last couple of days at work have been really stressful. Only two more nights after today and I get four much awaited days off! So many times I sabotage my efforts to lose weight. Even though I make forward pro... Read more

Bought a smaller size!

Tuesday, November 03, 2009      5 comments

Because of the nice surprise last month when I had to buy a pair of pajamas on a trip, I decided it was time to try the smaller size of pants. One pair fit a little tight, but I have the other on right now. I really should be farther along on ... Read more

The fool is mocked

Monday, November 02, 2009      2 comments

Not knowing what to write, I looked into the book of Proverbs and found an interesting verse. It is in Chapter 14 verse 9. Somewhat paraphrased it says that a fool mocks sin and sin mocks the fool. I love the Amplified Bible and in parenthese... Read more

Nothing much

Sunday, November 01, 2009      5 comments

Not sure quite what to write today. I hate the time changes! It is always so hard for me to adjust. With this one I always wake up an hour early and then I am so tired when I have to work until midnight. It takes about a month or more for me ... Read more

Can't do Halloween

Friday, October 30, 2009      3 comments

Most people celebrate Halloween, but I cannot in good consience do so. To me it is as unholy a day as Christmas is a holy day. It is the same as far as Satanist believe. So much Satanic activity goes on on this day with all the rituals and an... Read more

Priceless Peace

Thursday, October 29, 2009      4 comments

Sometimes learning what we can and cannot control is the secret to living a life stress free. I see people worrying all day long about things that they cannot do anything about. As soon as they release those things they can't control and admit... Read more

Magic results!

Wednesday, October 28, 2009      1 comments

It's amazing how much I got done when I did not have a computer. I had read, probably on Spark, about how clutter adds to your stress level. I do not lead a high stress life. I avoid stress. But I do live with clutter every day and it drives... Read more

Who is that person??

Tuesday, October 27, 2009      4 comments

I caught myself looking in a window at myself the other day, and then laughed when I did. I like what I am beginning to see! I can finally see a difference in me even though there are still rolls of fat to be gotten rid of. I can see them dim... Read more

Being thankful

Tuesday, October 20, 2009      2 comments

So many times, though we are thankful, we hesitate to say it. I don't know why. We are reminded of being thankful every year about this time, but why do we not make it a way of life? There is much to be thankful for. So often we look at what... Read more

Choose it today

Monday, October 19, 2009      3 comments

So much of what we have in this life is because of what we choose. The Bible tells us that we can choose life or death, blessing or cursing. Some people think this is a bad thing too, which I have a really hard time understanding. Maybe it's ... Read more

I have a plan

Sunday, October 18, 2009      1 comments

A plan for success is vital to achieving victory. They used to tell us when I sold books in college that if you fail to plan then you plan to fail. We cannot just wander through hoping to reach something we cannot even see. It's like looking ... Read more

I didn't get to go to jail. Darn!

Saturday, October 17, 2009      2 comments

I am disappointed that our minsitry trip to our local jail was cancelled. The guards are all sick and the inmates were acting up. I so love to do that type of ministry. I see so many of them judged and condemned by society. The whole picture... Read more

Where did the big hips go??

Friday, October 16, 2009      7 comments

While I was at my daughter's a couple of days ago, I forgot to take pajamas. Common problem I have. My husband and son frequently forget to take their socks and underwear. Don't know why, but we are really good at it! So off to Walmart to ge... Read more

In desperate need of your prayer support

Thursday, October 15, 2009      9 comments

I returned home from a visit with my daughter yesterday. Our time together was supposed to be a time of celebration. It turned into a time of renewed concern for the lifestyle she has chosen. I feel as though everything we have worked so hard... Read more

To be a friend

Tuesday, October 13, 2009      2 comments

I would hope that my friends would find me faithful and caring towards them because those are characteristics I need in a friend myself. The old rule of thumb, treat others as you would want to be treated surely comes into play when I interact... Read more
