Feeling Like a Yo-Yo
I'm back on here after a long hiatus. Not sure what exactly to do at the moment, but I have to keep moving forward before I drive myself crazy! I'm not where I want to be in my weight at ALL, and have been quite frustrated with not being able ... Read more
Back in action
I fell off the proverbial wagon 10 months ago, when my immune system almost completely shut down, and my problematic knee weakened and made it so that my walking sessions actually were off-limits. I honestly felt so lost at first. And then I w... Read more
What happened to adding photos on my page?
I'm sitting here having a mindblock. Or maybe it's an ID-10-T error? But for the life of me, I can't find the button to add more photos to my gallery! It doesn't even give me the option...and clearly I have done so before. Hmmmmmmm....... Read more
Almond MILK Joy
About two weeks ago, some friends of mine and I were talking about how much milk our households consume, with having hungry kids and hubbies. Some households drink gallons of whole, 2% or skim per month, while others (mine includ... Read more
Who or What Leads You?
After reading through Philippians Chapter 3 verses 12 through 21 and also Chapter 4 verse 1, I am convinced of 3 things:
1. Everyone is called to be mentors - regardless of how old or young you are, there is always someone who will look up ... Read more
A Staff and a Plan
I never thought I would make this connection, but here it is. Today I'm reminded of Jesus being like a Shepherd, using His rod and staff to guide me through life. When I have thought of a staff in the past, it conjured up images of condemnatio... Read more
Best Fruit Ever
What comes to mind when you read the word "fruit"? Is it sweetness? Vitality? Sunny weather? Do you think of your favorite fruit's appearance or taste? Am I making you hungry???
I LOVE fruit, sometimes eating them more over vegetables ... Read more
Keeping Little Irritations From Becoming Crises
I've spent the last week contemplating my daily bible studies, learning more about character than usual, but not having had a chance to write about anything that really relates to an SP topic. However, today's study on the book of Esther, speci... Read more
Making My Mark
It seems like there is a lot of talk about legacies, what we accomplish in this lifetime, and what kind of person we want to be remembered as. As I get older, I am faced with thoughts on this, and what things my daughter will hold to.
I've... Read more
Weight Loss and Illness
Being laid up with a sinus infection and strep throat this week made me put a lot of my weight loss into perspective. At first, I had hayfever bothering me - that wasn't so bad. But as I started to go downhill, so did my energy and appetite. ... Read more
Moved by a Song
Have you ever had a song jump out at you, touch your heart, and you feel totally connected to it in some way? I have. In fact, I often joke that my life is a continuous soundtrack, and I am able to attach songs to everyone in my life according... Read more
Marriage DNA and Helping Ourselves Be Healthy
I stumbled upon a really neat site this morning for a program that I didn't know existed (probably because it's Canadian) called Marriage Uncensored. I was in the middle of a bible study on angry outbursts and the site was one of the related re... Read more
Self-Control Vs. Do's and Don'ts
"Is there a difference between (godly) self-control and stubbornness?"
"How is self-control different than just trying to keep a long list of do's and don'ts?"
Those questions jumped out at me today in my continuing study of self-control,... Read more
How's Your Self Control?
This was a very ironic bible study to stumble upon this morning - and the very thing I needed to pursue!
It's true that self-control is what helps us stay committed to the promises we keep and the lives we lead. If no one had any sort of s... Read more
Contentment takes on many forms. For some, it is in completing a task. For others, it is in doing something for another person, and witnessing his/her reaction. Being around family is another source of contentment, just as surely as watching ... Read more
