My kids have all moved back home - My eldest DD and her 2 kids, my DGD and DGS, have been here, but now there is my younger DD and DSIL, and my DS and DDIL and THEIR baby girl. I'm delighted, to say the least - not that I see much of them, worki... Read more

I was chatting online with one of my Peruvian "sons" Dany (above at his mom's house in Iquitos, Peru) who is presently a missionary in Colombia. I'm going through some stuff here, and he wanted to encourage and comfort me. "Mom, I'll tell you, I... Read more

Well, Foreman and family have been gone 2 weeks...I miss them! But today I went and had my taxes done, and am delighted that my return will be enough to pay my airfare to Peru this summer! Of course, I still need to raise funds for other parts o... Read more

Today is Foreman's last day, so I stayed home from school (I'll go to my evening job because he'll be out preaching anyway). He has made some contacts that he didn't have before, networking through people I have known - my friend Sonia's daughte... Read more

I've posted the pictures from Maryland and NYC as well. After we left Philly on Mon the 18th, we drove to Maryland where my sister Leigh lives (Pasadena). Not as difficult to find as our destination in Philly! We spent the night, and Fore + e... Read more

It's frustrating, to have reached 180 and then crept back up over 200. But okay, I'm finally dipping back into the hundreds, and if I lay hold of the grace and practice what I have learned, and work at breaking bad habits and building good ones,... Read more

It's so delightful to have Foreman and Yeli here...and the baby too! I had felt a little badly that here I'd brought them all this way, yet I hadn't had any time to arrange any speaking engagements or anything for Foreman to impart his vision... Read more

Monday, January 14, 2008      0 comments

Foreman loves to tease me and lately, knowing I put some of the weight back on, he's called me "gringuita menos flaquita" (less thin). I told him that bugged me - and to start calling things that are not as though they were. I have to look that ... Read more

I can't make excuses...stress or good food...I gotta get the eating under control. I COULD HAVE achieved goal by now. How frustrating! The good: I AM fairly consistent in exercise. And I HAVE increased the challenge to my muscles - for while I m... Read more

My number one spiritual son from Peru is Foreman Varela - those of you who've read my blogs have already heard plenty about him! THIS time he'll be accompanied by wife Yeli and baby Emanuel (1 1/2 year old) I've put back a "few" pounds over th... Read more
Boot Camp

Even Spiritual Warriors need training, and I feel as though I'm going through a real breaking. Stress at the home front because of my husband's illness and apathy and my general unhappiness with the status quo has stirred up the emotional eating... Read more
