Changing Lives

Thursday, May 31, 2007      0 comments

Lately in the daily reflections we've frequently discussed our power to affect others and the world around us. So, since it's been a while since I changed my pix, I figured I'd focus on that. The gallery shows progressive pix from the 5 week mis... Read more

nice comments!

Wednesday, May 30, 2007      1 comments

Warm day today - hurray! -so I wasn't wearing a sweater. I'd gotten rid of some of the yo-yo'd pounds... Well, one of the (male) teachers commented, 'I don't remember if I mentioned anything to you or not - if I have forgive me for being redunda... Read more

fasting and praying

Monday, May 28, 2007      2 comments

Not to lose weight, mind you, even though I am disgusted with my previous lack of self-control. I want to embark on this 40 day prayer-fast with my church (and others) - and decided to take it from day to day as to what I will fast. I breakfa... Read more

one step backwards...

Friday, May 25, 2007      1 comments

It's the eating thing. Food just tastes so good, and sometimes I'm just tired of tracking the calories I would rather just stuff into myself! BUT I continue to workout...even when I would like to skip it...and I even do more than my goal of card... Read more

"How come you're so nice?"

Thursday, May 17, 2007      0 comments

As a Teacher Assistant, I'm occasionally asked to take kids out of the class...whether they're being disruptive, so that others won't be distracted...or the class is particularly distracting and the ones I take out are the beneficiaries...to giv... Read more

Killer Kanoli...

Monday, May 14, 2007      0 comments

Well, I'm not sure the exact spelling...somehow that doesn't look right...it's that Italian pastry, made from a waffly type cookie, rolled and stuffed with a sweet cream-cheesy flavored confection and this one was coated with dark chocolate. Wel... Read more

Perseverence

Monday, May 07, 2007      2 comments

Okay, I had a bad week last week and the pounds just PILE on with such EASE, it's disgusting! Okay, I don't think I'll ever be THIN: skin loses its elasticiy, and I have years of extra-weight-stretched skin on belly and arms, so that'll just kin... Read more

Giving

Friday, May 04, 2007      2 comments

How's that go - "What you are is God's gift to you, what you become is your gift to God" - ? something like that. My daughter Abi asked me what I want for Mother's Day, and it was funny , I had to tell her I'd been focusing so much on what could... Read more

Tempis Fugis! (sp?)

Wednesday, May 02, 2007      0 comments

I hadn't realized how much time had already passed since my last Blog! Had been off track on my calorie consumption. I can guess that it has something to do with financial worries. I've told my friends in Peru the only way I am rich (in tempor... Read more

Look how far you've come!

Thursday, April 19, 2007      1 comments

We have our bad days. I know I have yo-yo'd so many times every five pounds. I was hoping to show a nice round weight loss of 75 pounds when I went Monday to the doctor who I mentioned in my intro. Okay, so instead of 187, I weighed in at 190, ... Read more

What motivates you?

Saturday, April 14, 2007      2 comments

It's the love of God...because the purpose of losing weight is to be able to serve Him (as my expression of love to Him) through missions...representing His love to others. This next batch of pix represents what Love makes you do - that AGAPE, d... Read more

The Power of Your Love

Friday, April 13, 2007      1 comments

It's a song title. Don't know who wrote it. Have heard it sung by Hillsong, we do it in our church.Heard it in Spanish too (just as lovely!) One of the lines that especially ministers to me is "Lord, I've come to know the weaknesses I see in me... Read more

the Capacity to Love

Friday, April 06, 2007      3 comments

I think it was Bill Gaither who wrote the song - "I am loved, you are loved, I can risk loving you, for the One Who knows me best loves me most" The love of God the Father for us, for ME, motivated Him to send His son Jesus - and in love for t... Read more

Ruth and other Daughters too

Sunday, April 01, 2007      1 comments

While I seem to have an especial lot of sons, I do have a few spiritual daughters as well, and I have to say my favorite is Ruth, the pastors' daughter. She is so sweet and sincere, loves the Lord so much...and at least THREE of my boys have con... Read more

Indiana Elvis

Thursday, March 29, 2007      2 comments

I met Elvis briefly in Lima in 04, but got to know him better and bond with him when we went by boat to visit churches along the Puinahua river in the rain forest region of Peru in June 06. Nothing like sharing experiences to get closer! He is a... Read more
