I was so delighted this morning when I got on the scale - I'm down to a weight I haven't seen since it began creeping up on me again! The temptation is to become too relaxed. But I know I CAN take a LITTLE break, because I've already met my fit... Read more

Almost all yesterday and last night it was snowing. Late in the afternoon when I saw the mound that had accumulated on my van since coming home from work, I told my daughter Abi that I wasn't going to go to Bible study. Not that I don't WANT to ... Read more

Trying to rack up my Sparkpoints, there remained blogging. So, I go to my page and try to think of a title, a theme, a subject. What to say? And that brought to mind the scripture. Actually, in looking for one, I found others similar. So here ar... Read more

I could have slept later, but bladder and bowel wouldn't let me. Just as well - tomorrow I have to set my alarm for 4:55. That gives me a few minutes to answer nature's call before going down to my bike...30 minutes of Pedaling and Prayer...a sh... Read more

I was never very graceful ANYWAY. My art form was VISUAL, not dance, and so I have spent hours SITTING to do my craft. And after (mumble) years of this sedentary behavior, well...the joints are not too keen on me doing anything that requires fle... Read more

How's that saying go? What you are is God's gift to you - what you become is your gift to God. Something like that. So, I've been given this body. For years I made poor choices ...habit, ignorance...But it's a new day, and I can make better ch... Read more

It's all how you look at things. It is so easy to look only with what our eyes can see, and become alarmed, discouraged, and worried. Which is why I daily need to go to the Word of God and get a more heavenly perspective of things. " Heaven an... Read more

In my prayers, I ask the Lord to help me make a difference. I often bring before Him all the kids in whose lives I've ever played a part - be it babysitter, Pioneer Girl or Missionette leader, teacher of art or Spanish, paraprofessional or Teach... Read more

Vacations are typically a break from what you usually do. For me, I'm off from school. Does that mean I sit around and do nothing? No way! For one thing, I'm just not accustomed to that! Even sitting at the computer or watching tv, I'm watching ... Read more

Yesterday I worked a bit with my 10 1/2 year old granddaughter, at her request, to show her how to crochet. I have a "scrap" blanket I started, using odds and ends of yarns that were left from other projects. So today she's doing a little more o... Read more
Saved By The "Bell"

By "Bell" I mean any kind of alarm signal. Bad news first. Volunteer firefighters responded to the call early this morning in one of the towns in my county - don't know if they use a siren or what to alert the volunteers. Anyway, it turned o... Read more

Continuing to read in Zechariah today. God is telling the prophet what He's going to do, and what He plans to do with Joshua. Concluding the sixth chapter, He says, "This will happen if you diligently obey the Lord your God.” IF How many ... Read more
Waiting and Hope
Saturday, December 22, 2012      2 comments

Today I was reading along in Zechariah. I'm not a BIG fan of the prophets - the symbolism and era-specific references don't make for the easiest reading. But "ALL Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and tra... Read more
