Outreach

Wednesday, February 20, 2013      3 comments

A little background: I work as a Teacher Assistant (TA) in a high school, conveniently down the street from where I live. Before I started working there, I'd sit on the porch of a morning with my coffee and pray for the students as they'd p... Read more

Kids and Veggies

Monday, February 18, 2013      2 comments

My late husband used to call Brussels Sprouts "poison plants from Jupiter".(Ironically, he liked other members of the cabbage family.) But my daughter and I have loved them, now and then treating ourselves to the high fat-and-sodium frozen sprou... Read more

CAT MIRACLE DIET

Sunday, February 17, 2013      8 comments

I was looking over some photos I'd put on my facebook, and came upon one to which I'd posted this. I think it will give folks a fun laugh today! I don't know who wrote this originally. Most diets fail because we stubbornly continue to think... Read more

"The Comfort Wherewith We Ourselves Are Comforted of God"

Thursday, February 14, 2013      3 comments

While I usually prefer the NIV, I do like the "phrasology" of the KJV for this particular portion of scripture. I have had many occasions to turn to 2 Cor. 1:3-7 over the years. And my recent break-up with Levi gives me another such occasion.... Read more

The Way He Does the Things He Does

Wednesday, February 13, 2013      3 comments

So, I was feeling a little down starting yesterday, as I was facing the anniversary of DH's passing, and having broken up, not having a "sweetheart" for Valentine's Day. We'd gotten a new phone so I had to restore some frequently called nu... Read more

Emotions

Tuesday, February 12, 2013      2 comments

On February 13, 2011, a Sunday, I got up as usual and went down to prepare the coffee. I then returned upstairs to take a shower. When I finished, I went back to my room to ask my husband if he was going to come to church with me - he would have... Read more

Getting Near That Time

Monday, February 11, 2013      3 comments

While not "religious" about Valentine's Day, still it's nice to let people know that you care about them, whether you are lovers, friends, or family. I heard a song by Steven Curtis Chapman some time ago, and used it as a background for some of ... Read more

Whatever

Sunday, February 10, 2013      1 comments

One of my problems in the area of weight loss is that I really like food - the many flavors and textures - and it was hard to listen to the stomach saying, "Okay, I've had enough" when the tongue was saying, "But it's so GOOD, I want MORE." But ... Read more

Pumpin' Snow

Saturday, February 09, 2013      2 comments

We must have gotten a foot at the very least since the snow started coming. It is absolutely beautiful. But also inconvenient. I want to get to church tomorrow, especially since I didn't make it LAST week.So, I put on my boots and coat and hat a... Read more

Bathroom Wisdom

Friday, February 08, 2013      4 comments

There is a calendar in the ladies' room of the second floor co-ed staff lav where I work. It's been February for about a week now but it was just this morning when I looked below the photo of the pretty winter landscape to read the quote there: ... Read more

Perspective

Thursday, February 07, 2013      1 comments

The more I deal with this world's trappings, the more I want of Jesus. I am not rich by U.S. standards, but certainly compared to most of my friends in Peru, I would be considered QUITE well off. I am able to make monthly payments on my van. ... Read more

Changes

Wednesday, February 06, 2013      1 comments

I finally got a more-or-less permanent assignment for this semester. I'm in a "Math Lab". No, not METH Lab! This is strictly legit! It's not a classroom per se. Rather, if students miss lessons or work or tests, they can come to us during their ... Read more

"HOME"

Monday, February 04, 2013      1 comments

I have lived in this house since I was pregnant with my son, who will be 30 this summer. It was my Dad's and he was still living here, along with my step-brother, when my husband and little girl and I moved in. We rented, with the option to buy.... Read more

"Regular" Cardio

Sunday, February 03, 2013      1 comments

I won't deny I had quite a workout, climbing the ladder, washing and painting the walls...My arms and shoulders tell me I challenged them. But my knees and hips did not appreciate all the standing I put them through. So today, to do them a favor... Read more

Several Months and 23 Pounds Later

Saturday, February 02, 2013      1 comments

My daughter Abi (AKA Glitterfairy, previously Raptormelon) and I have been at these walls since after breakfast. Actually, I started washing them last night during commercial breaks while watching Knight and Day, a fun action comedy. I was up ti... Read more
