Well, actually most Okinawans do not worship buddha. They practice ancestor worship at their butsudons. The pastor told the woman that she could take care of the butsudon, but not worship there. (I, personally, would think it better to let someone else care for it so it was not in her house!)

Mary, what is a butsudon???

My bilingual AoG meets in the Salvation Army church building. Our services are held at 2 pm. But on special occasions, like today, we have a joint service with them at 11.
Today my DD and DGD are coming with me.

He is risen!

He is risen indeed!

Janice-it does work that way doesn't it? Will pray for your trip.

Happy Easter! We are supposed to be having our Easter service and a beach baptism this morning. It is almost 9 am and it is storming fiercely. One of the women who was supposed to be baptized is a widow whose family butsudon is in her home. She has really struggled with her decision. The service is not until 10:30. Prayerfully, the rain will clear.

I wanted to jump in and wish everyone a Happy Easter. We are still traveling. This week has been our final week in Florida. Several people wanted to see us and hear about the ministry before we head out. Why does it seem no matter how well we think we schedule that the last week is overflowing? Of course all these meetings include food usually dinner and deserts.
Oh my this part of ministry is exciting and encouraging as we meet with brothers and sisters in Christ but dangerous to the waist line. We will get back to Michigan the end of next week so will know the damage then. Then 3wks to shape up before heading off to Ukraine.

Have a blessed Resurrection day.

It's so good to have the okay to exercise again. I put on about 3 pounds from the inactivity. Doesn't take much!

My DD and I were commenting how we've changed - Like in the store, our "impulse buying" is no longer, "Let's get these chocolates/chips" but rather, "OOo, let's get this vegetable!"

I'm awaiting my 3 friends' arrival for our monthly Scrabble game, today at my house so they can see the work my DD and I did on the walls, and the new furniture.

I've been blessed by heady discussions with my son, who is much more respectful than he was just a few years ago.

Aardvark...made me giggle

Michele...lifted you up this week too. Sorry for the few rough days.

Today was my official weigh in day...although I weigh daily. Today I was up a pound. Actually I have been up a pound all week. Frustrating because I have eaten at the lower end of my calorie limit, not cheated and walked everyday but 1 and that was because I was on the go all day here and there...I am sure some of that had my heart rate up. Grrrr. Oh well...I keep going anyway. Hope to see the scale go back down very soon.

Thanks for being my cheerleaders, ladies!!

I was able to read this article, Carolyn! Glad "they're dead" emoticon
From your Facebook post I was able to see the tornado blog too.

I exercised today and made a new flax blueberry muffin. It was good...105 Cal. each. Dinner is a Mayo Clinic recipe, baked ziti with veggies...a new favorite for both Mike and I.

Even though I am eating well, exercising every single day and starting to lose weight...I am constantly battling fatigue and leg pain. My doc is testing my thyroid again next Friday. If the leg pain doesn't go away they will do some other testing. Really tired of feeling yucky.

Blessings to all!!

Julie- Hope things start looking up soon!

Michelle-- 6 pounds! emoticon

Planned to exercise today, but didn't. Tried to get my stability ball ready for some strength training, but the plug is missing. (We packed up a lot of stuff when travelling over holidays and subletting our home). Frustrating. Eating is going okay, but heading into afternoon/evening now and that is definitely my worst time.

Will continue to pray, Julie!

We got 8" of snow yesterday!! Happy spring...ugh. I am freezing! So ready for sunshine, warm weather and flip flops!

I am down 6 pounds now in the last two weeks. Feeling so happy about that. I chose an old photo of myself at my ideal weight to put in the kitchen and bathroom as more motivation. I would love to get to 150# but hubby thinks that would be too thin. I am shooting for 160# and then see. So...that is 15# from here..or pobably 15 weeks. I have never kept with a clean diet and good exercise for a full month let alone 15 weeks. So...gonna get at it this time!!

Hope all is well with everyone else! Carolyn, I clicked on your blog about tornado but couldn't see anything. I hope you are ok!!!

Blessings!
Michelle

Hi ladies, been away on a bit of a vacation. I think I was about a gazillion calories over for the week and gained a couple of pounds. I just reset my goals and tracked today's food so far... will definitely start exercising tomorrow....

Weekend greetings to all. Read back a little and praying for you right now, Julie.

It's rather hot here where I am tonight in Brazil. We have had super hot weeks lately but this week we did get one night of rain much to many's surprise.

Money is coming in for my d.s. trip to Mozambique. Very exciting. Blogged here on SP today. Getting my walking in and doing alright!

I have been having a good Saturday. It rained all morning so the temperature was in the lower 70s. It is getting quite warm now though.
I am working on a photo memory book for a friend who will be retiring soon. It will take me a long time to get it done but I got a start at it today.

That was the plan, Mariean, but God's plans are not always our plans...looks like Jan is experiencing that, too!

Could I just ask all of you to pray for me? Going through another really hard stretch...same issue that I began dealing with in December, but things are even more difficult now. I'm really sorry that I can't share details...thought that by this time we would be through the valley and I would be able to share with you of God's amazing workings. Oh, I know that God is still at work, but I'm having a hard time seeing His hand right now. Pray specifically for peace and perseverance.

Hello everyone. I started walking this week with a friend. My knee is still giving me a little trouble but I wear a brace and it seems to help. I have a dr appt April 11 just after we get back to Michigan.
Today we began searching out tickets to Ukraine for May 1. Our plan was Ukraine for May then in to Russia for June and July. But it seems there are a few changes in our plans. Russia paperwork has been delayed and we will not see it until end of April. Since someone else is going with us to Ukraine we have decided to go ahead with those plans and will probably make it a round trip ticket coming back home end of May. Both my dh and I had wondered if we are suppose to skip Russia this year. Perhaps this is our answer. There are some details that may direct our decision so we continue to pray for the right directions. Kenya is still in the plans for September. We have a small team we will be leading.

Sounds like you need to take furloughs at different times so you can have 2 summers instead of 2 winters!

I got down to Iowa okay. Icy patches, but not too bad. It is pretty cold here for the 1st day of spring!

Spent the day helping DD apply for jobs.

In CHRIST I can!

Good morning, ladies!

OMA, you're talking about spring...and I was just sitting outside thinking about how much it felt like autumn. I just left an Ohio winter. Not sure I'm ready for another winter - although winter in South Africa is DEFINITELY nicer than winter in Ohio!!!!

We are under a winter storm advisory. Not good timing for me. I was suppose to take my DD down to Iowa tomorrow after a morning interview. She is now sick as well, so there is a bump in our plans.
Sure was hoping for spring to come.

Praising God as the funds for my oldest ds's trip to Mozambique are beginning to come in and it looks like he will be able to go!

All well here for the most part. Lots happening this week as we get geared up for a retreat over the Easter weekend with the small group where we work here in our town.

Love and prayers for all!

A very tasty corn beef and cabbage lunch after church. It was a fund raiser for the Bible quiz team. Our friends that lead the group are the people we are staying with this trip. So I jumped in to help. The kids qualified for the nationals that will be in NY in July.
We have two weeks left here in Fl and our calendar is filling up. Now I just need to remember how to make wise choices when eating out. Deputation is such a challenge to the diet.
Tomorrow our host and I plan to start walking.

The African Nursing School where I teach had graduation ceremony this morning. Here are some photos to check out. They are in my "alternate" SparkPeople blog as for some reason, I am unable to post a blog on SP.

Irene (DIDMIS) just called me from her Rehabilitation Center. She is making progress, one week after surgery. She walks with her new KNEE, with a walker but with someone along side her. She asked me to say "hi" to her Sparkfriends and teams. She does not her computer with her in Rehab so is on SparkBreak.

Whew...I am reeling from the craziness of the last few days. Thursday, we traveled and hour and a half away to eat lunch at school with our oldest grandblessing, Owen. His open house was that night too so we stayed for the afternoon and ate dinner with them then went to Open House. Our son and daughter-in-law had been in St. Louis for meetings (They live in MN) so they stopped by that afternoon and visited...and wrestled with the little ones. Yesterday our son and DIL came to our house to spend the night before heading back. Daughter and her family all traveled up for dinner and to have my hubby baptize Owen at our church. He had been asking questions for so long and parents decided he was ready. We got to the church and the baptistry was ICE COLD! Mike didn't think Owen would stay in if he felt it...so he took his confession of faith out of the water then picked him up and dunked him...talk about a shocker to Owen! Haha...it was funny but still a true blessing and he will surely never forget that experience!!

So...everyone is gone now and I am worn out. Have laundry to do and need to go buy more coffee...but other than that it is a low key day.

And another big event was getting on the scale today. Down 4 pounds now from when I started the Mayo Clinic Diet two weeks ago....and my thyroid meds were changed a week ago. Feels so good to see some progress!

Have a great weekend ladies!

I've been busy enjoying my grandblessings. Went to the mall with them yesterday to do some walking.
Today I will travel back to my oldest son's home for a visit. After church tomorrow I will head up to my dad's house for a couple days. Tuesday I head to Iowa.
The weather hasn't been that great and there is more snow in the forecast.

In CHRIST I can!

I've been very busy with activities leading up to Nursing School graduation tomorrow during Morning church service. Today I need to make a cake to help with the reception afterwards. Five students passed all their comprehensive exams, except for their math exam. So, Monday morning and for two weeks I will be teaching a remedial math class and then giving them another exam at the end of these two weeks. They need to pass or they will not get their diplomas! The First year nursing students have final exams this coming week but I have not been involved with teaching them yet. I start doing so on April 8th.

My computer has had the BSOD often in recent weeks so I'm sending it to the States for repairs. BSOD = blue screen of death. It is still on a 2 year service agreement that I paid for when I bought it so I won't have to pay for repairs.

I still have not been able to post SP blogs which has been a downer for me so I set up my ownSP blogs. They are found at:

carolyn0107.blogspot.de/

I've kept about the same weight but then again, I've not been trying much. When I do walk for exercise, I don't walk far enough to make a difference and I certainly can't walk fast enough. I have to walk with my eyes down, continually looking down to make sure I place my feet ok so I don't fall.

Have a great day.

Hello everyone wow the month is half over and I am just checking in for the first time. Our time here in Florida has been very busy with family and friends. We have been blessed to spend time with the grandkids this trip. When that happens all else fades away. So with it went tracking and posting.
My eating choices have been off track too because other people are in control of food prep. We have enjoyed lots of great fellowship but along with that goes food. I have even given it to my favorite Key Lime pie that is best here in Citrus country.
But today I tracked and today I was in my range. A little on the high end but still in range.
I weighed a few days ago on someone's scale and it looks like I am holding steady.
Two more weeks then we head back home. My goal this next week is to start walking daily. It is perfect weather here so need to get moving.
Hope to have time to catch up on the posts soon.

Good afternoon, ladies. I just returned home after a few days away with my co-workers. It was kind of a working vacation. Lots of time to rest, read, and just have fun with these dear friends. as well as time to plan the calendar for the rest of the year. Now it's back to the normal routine....

Good to see you Mary! And YAHOO for new shoes!

Made a yogurt smoothie for breakfast and oatmeal dairy free blueberry muffins. Yum. Stayed in my calorie range all last week but 1 day. Lost 2 pounds last week.

Doc upped my thyroid medicine and so I hope to feel better soon...if not, she may need to increase it more or figure out if there is something else wrong.

Going to lunch with a friend today.

Got to take one of the elderly ladies in our church to her cancer doctor yesterday. She has had both colon and breast cancer. She had a pet scan last week and the doc said yesterday that she is cancer free. That is the second pet scan within this year that have both been clear. Doc said pet scan again in 6 months, and if it is clear as well she will be done with the scans! Yippee!

Well...off I go. Have a great day!

Michele, that reminds me, next time I go to Peru I'm gonna have to pack some herbs and spices from here. Last time, I brought some for my pastora friend in Lima. This time it'll be to bring to my in-laws for when I do any cooking there. My mother-in-law worked for a time cooking for American missionaries and loved to learn their recipes. I think she'd be delighted to have some of the seasonings I use. Otherwise I'm kinda limited to garlic, cilantro, basil, oregano, and rosemary. Shel

Happy today...Just received a package that had new athletic shoes!!!! The old one had a hole worn out in it...hahaha that means I used them!

It has been a rough week after I fell, but I am doing good. Some swelling in my left knee, but I am so much better than Sunday.

Sending lots of love to my fellow missionary friends!
Mary

Would love to taste the pickles!

Enjoying the peace of a quiet house as my dogs lie on the cool tile floor and all my boys and dh are gone off here and there. Studying a little for a ladies' meeting tonight.

Made pickles last night with only ingredients that I could find locally - no pickling spice mix from the States. This was a first for me, not the pickle part, but not depending on something bought from faraway.

Love to all! And thanks to our Llama Mama for the virtual soup (sp goodie) and to Mary for the virtual spices! :)

Had my of appointment yesterday. She increased my thyroid medicine. Another bloodtest in 4 weeks. I lost a tiny bit of weight this week. I have been exercizing every day...but my muscle pains are really bad...especially in the mornings. But...God is good all the time...and He holds me close.

Tonight we go into Daylight Savings Time - spring forward! It always throws me off when I try to communicate with friends in Peru, because we're in the same time zone, but they don't change hours. Last night I had a nice long talk with Levi. I'll try to call him tonight and/or tomorrow afternoon too. Weekends are the only time I can really stay up to reach him, since he works so late.

This morning instead of the bike I did some spark workouts. A nice change.

I appreciate you ladies! Shel

Hello there to all. Hearing about snow here and there is nice as here we have been having record temps with 100+ on many afternoons. Nights have been hot too making it hard to sleep.

Yesterday when I came home from my dental appointment I saw my DD had prepared stuffed cabbage, and they were sitting there all nice in the crockpot. I said, "OOooo, stuffed cabbage! Um...YOu want me to turn the crockpot ON?" She said, "You've got to be KIDDING! They've been sitting there for TWO HOURS!?"
That's what we call SLOW cooking!

Hi ladies. I am back from Mississippi...went there with Mike. He had meetings there and if I would drie him here and back, he could still do his computer work and call in meetings. So, I enjoyed a little R & R...used the treadmill at the hotel and ate good. Came home to a half pound loss.

Back to the doc tomorrow about thyroid. Labs showed I was of a bit so we will see what she recommends.

I snowed here in Illinois while we were gone...so cold...so ready for spring.

Hurry back, Carolyn!
Well, this morning at my WORK mission field, I didn't get anyone for math homework, but a student whom I met at a blood drive (we friended each other on facebook) came over, and she was upset, so I invited her to sit and spill it out. It makes me appreciate what I've been going through in my long-distance relationship with Levi, preparing me to speak with the voice of experience! Shel

This morning I put on my Youtube "thanksgiving" playlist while doing my Bible study. Inspiring - so much for which to give Him thanks, not the least of which is our salvation and sanctification.
I had a nice video chat with my son in Utah via gmail last night. Our relationship has gone through a lot, but it's at a good place now. I just pray for his return to the Lord. Shel

Carolyn - amazing what can happen and change in the course of a year, eh? I've enjoyed journeying this last year with you through your blogs/newsletters!

Had my third cervical (neck) epidural shot today... hurting tonight!

In the midst of this, we're getting ready for a treasure hunt at AWANA tomorrow night for my K-2nd graders. Making origami boxes out of cardstock, with the verses they have learned or will learn this year printed on paper "jewels." My sweet hubby is cutting out 19 jewels per child and I'm working on the boxes. Still have to figure out the "map".... Found a 5 week lesson set that includes the story of Paul called "Walking God's Trail" and an accompanying story about a Cree Native Chef who chose to walk God's trail. Seeing as we teach Mohican Native children, it seemed like a good idea... we'll see how it plays out yet. Our last few weeks will be about instructions for walking God's trail (path).

Anyway - that's what I'm up to today! Haven't been very hungry, but have you ever noticed that feeling too full for chocolate takes a lot longer to happen? lol

Have a good week, ladies!

Good morning, ladies. It is another gorgeous day here. Yesterday was really hot, but today is a bit cooler. I have an opportunity this afternoon to share God's Word with the staff at a preschool in town. This is a ministry that started a couple of years ago....today is my first time since I've been back in South Africa.

Haven't yet called the repairman for the dryer. I don't use it much, so not feeling pressure to get it fixed. Seems like a lot of things need repaired....I guess that's what happens when you're away from home for 8 months!

Carolyn, praising the Lord with you!!!

Well, I've been in and out here for a while. I'm trying to get back in the spark swing of things and move forward with my goals. I was doing pretty well before the holidays, but we travelled home and spent 3 months including all the holidays with family and that set me back almost 10 pounds.
I've had a few false starts since the new year but I just today I'm feeling like maybe I'm ready now. Tracked my food and kept my portions and snacking under control.


Carolyn--what a Journey! Glad you've made it back to Africa! It's one of my dreams to spend some time there at some point in my life.

Looking forward to getting "reacquainted" with everyone here.

One year ago today, March 5th, I fell and broke my left knee and left wrist. Five surgeries on my leg and one on my wrist, over three and a half months in the hospital and rehabilitation center, prayers, phone calls, flowers, cards, emails, visitors, months living in a Senior housing "village" and various helpers later and I am BACK IN AFRICA! Praise the LORD for HIS healing! An emergency room doctor was recently here at the Bongolo Hospital and he was surprised that I was already back here, knowing about the injuries that I had had. Again, Praise the Lord!

Hey, hey, a new month already. Seems hard to believe. Seems I haven't sat still many days this year. I'm trying not to do toooo much today and enjoy a little down time on this windy Monday. Glad to read up on happenings around here this morning. Glad to hear about your boxes arriving, Carolyn. We are still wondering what ever happened to two boxes that were sent to us before Christmas from the States! One had important parts for the island camp.

Here in the winter if we are slow to move the wash into the dryer it doesn't matter - we can forget for a couple of days, but the basement is so cold it doesn't affect it any. But come summer, if we don't put it in the dryer the same day, it starts smelling funky and we have to run it thru the wash again. Shel

Shel-I left out an important part of the drying-my dehumidifier set on laundry mode. It is very humid here in Okinawa as well! Sometimes takes the wrung out washcloth on the side of the tub 3 days to dry without it.

Mary, medicine is certainly an "art" more than a science.
When I've been in Lima, it's usually been during their winter, which is damp, and it takes a long time for stuff to air dry - often ends up smelling kinda funky (mildew!)
It's so nice to have the modern conveniences of washer AND dryer. I hope you get everything fixed up, Julie! Shel

Julie-hope your dryer gets fixed. I only have a small Japanese front load washer-so one load is small enough to hang in the bathroom over the shower rods, the towel racks, a 4-tiered scarf hanger and every available knob and faucet. I have a clothesline outside, but the last time I tried to use it, my foot went through the soil-small sinkhole. We are built over a landfill-the building is on bedrock, but the soil is settling-makes the front step a doozie!

Good morning, ladies. I have wet clothes in the washing machine. My dryer quit on Thursday, and I haven't had a chance yet to call a repairman. Was planning on hanging the clothes outside, but now it's looking like rain....it was raining on Thursday, too, when the dryer went out! So....if any of you are experiencing a drought, just invite me over to do laundry! Ha!

Nana-hope the doctor gets your thyroid figured out. I was on thyroid medication (that they said I would have to be on forever); but that doctor retired, and the new one said he did not believe in giving it to borderline people since it can affect your heart. That was when my weight started piling on (I was normal weight at the time)

Wednesday morning I got a SparkMail from someone on the Slowest Loser's. She asked why the SL team had gone private! I went to the Leader edit place for teams and sure enough, the team was private. I did a search and found a thread asking where the SL blogs were. Coach Jen had responded to that the team was now Member lead and that the blogs had been pulled. SP had not told any of us team leaders what was going on. I wrote to all the leaders (there are 8 of us) and heard back from three of them. I wrote a couple of threads on the team explaining what I had learned, asking for a name idea, etc. The team was offline for over a day and then I made it public again but with the name "Tortoises Unite! - Losing Weight Slowly!". We're trying to get the team page icon of the tortoise edited a bit so we can use the same one but that it won't refer to Bruce who wrote the SL blogs. Anyway, I've been BUSY with this... to say the least! I think it's all going ok.

Nursing School graduation is March 17th. We give comprehensive exams next week. I'm proctoring three of the exams.

My four boxes and new recliner glider that I had shipped from the States arrived today. It's so nice putting my legs up on a recliner that actually fits me!

I'm still having problems blogging again. I wasn't able to blog in Dec but then was able to several times in January. Since Jan 31st I've tried to blog many times but just get an error message. I've contacted SP experts but still no resolution. I sure wish I could blog again.

It's HOT season here, often in the humid 90s.

Well, that's up with me!

Thanks for starting the new threads, Julie!

Happy March to all of you!

Today ... I start, yet again...new month, new shoes, new walking plan, new eating plan. I am trying not to allow the negative thoughts to take hold (You always start and you always fail. Here you go again, wonder how long it will last this time. etc)

Had new thyroid blood draw yesterday. My levels are up but still within satisfactory guidlines. Will see the doc next Friday to ask what that means. Tired of being soooo tired all the time.

Good afternoon, ladies. This has been a challenging week for me...BUT GOD is still on His throne! And this is the month that we celebrate His amazing gift of redemption....

Julie

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
~1 Corinthians 15:58
