Treat Them like Family and Visitors

Wednesday, December 21, 2011      2 comments

I haven't had time to congure up any wise words of wisdom lately. I've been running so hard trying to get the house clean before my son comes home. He knows how we live, but now that he is older he has become a guest in my home so I treat him,... Read more

Giving All Day Long

Friday, December 16, 2011      0 comments

Today is the party from the church ladies to our clients. They have asked me to come help on my day off. The kids will decorate some sugar cookies and it will be just a really good time. Of course, there will also be food present. I am not ... Read more

Empty Rewards

Thursday, December 15, 2011      1 comments

Yesterday was our Christmas party at work. We did not do our usual exchange of gifts and my boss opted instead for door prizes. She has someone draw a name then that person drawn draws the next recipient. Three or four times someone drew their... Read more

Digging Deeper

Wednesday, December 14, 2011      1 comments

We end up or latest round of Biggest Loser at work at the party today. I haven't lost any weight one more time. This is really getting frustrating. I have not done what I needed to do. I have lost my self discipline. I have had a few too man... Read more

Balance Challenge

Monday, December 12, 2011      1 comments

Balance is what makes us healthy. Spark teaches us to gain balance in our lives. I have played with that balance every time I take a bite. But now I am aware of where I need to tip the scales where, before I just blindly ate, not caring about t... Read more

Prayer for Family Please

Friday, December 09, 2011      5 comments

My brother has Shingles. I guess he is in terrible pain and they go all over the place. He sleeps on a recliner in the bedroom. It sure stinks getting older. Mom had a very light case and no further issues. I do hope and pray that he heals qu... Read more

Door Locks and Batteries

Thursday, December 08, 2011      1 comments

My car battery needs changed. It has been refusing to start in the ridiculously cold weather we have been having. It's old enough that there really isn't enough juice left to get it going in the morning. Boy, it sounds like me! The funny thing... Read more

Is He or Isn't He?

Wednesday, December 07, 2011      0 comments

With God all things are possible. We all know that, but we do not live like we know that. That to me, says we do not know it. We give it lip service, that we know it, but if we truly and experientially knew it, it would change how we live. We... Read more

Give a Smile for Christmas

Tuesday, December 06, 2011      1 comments

It has become a reason to smile for me to do the bunny hop with the girls at our facility at night. They put on a music CD for the kids and no one knew how to do it. OK, all you had to do was listen to the words and do it, but they were clueles... Read more

Pounds Equal Inches?

Monday, December 05, 2011      1 comments

When I was measuring myself this morning to see what length of belt would be necessary for me to buy to fit my middle, I realized I am 10 inches off of my preweight middle. I have about 30 pounds to go to my goal. So ten pounds would be about t... Read more

Exercise and Faith

Sunday, December 04, 2011      1 comments

I have been amazed lately at how many diseases are either prevented or lessened because of exercise. The further I look, the longer the list gets. Why do we fight it so much when it is about the most important thing we can do? I am so guilty o... Read more

Water or a Snack

Saturday, December 03, 2011      4 comments

I took a snacking quiz here on Spark yesterday. One of the questions on the quiz was whether I ate a snack or first drank a glass of water. That one has had me thinking. If you read my Sparkpage, you will see listed there that many times we mi... Read more

Up For A Challenge?

Friday, December 02, 2011      1 comments

This time of year is so difficult for so many. I worked with the Grinch last night, but I can definitely understand why it is so hard for her. She lost her dad a year ago right after Thanksgiving. Christmas was such an awful time for her anywa... Read more

More than...

Thursday, December 01, 2011      0 comments

What makes Christianity different from other religions is the fact that we have a God who wants a relationship with us. Mere theology will not keep you strong in times of weakness or hardship. What gets you through times like that is knowing tha... Read more

Life Gets in the Way

Wednesday, November 30, 2011      1 comments

Does life get in the way of your relationship with God? I know mine does. I have been growing so much closer to God over the last few months, but the last week or so has been really hard on that relationship. Sometimes we can get so busy doing... Read more
