I cleaned out my closets and boxes in the garage and passed on a lot -- and I do mean a lot -- of the nice clothes I had for work (and 90% still had never been worn, still had price tags on them!) I packed them away when I retired 4 years ago, thinking I'd probably be going back to work . . . but I'm done with the work force. . . . especially after DH just retired too!!!

So I lost probably 100 pounds yesterday!!! woohoo!!!

Best thing that happened yesterday?

Well, let's see . . . it could have been the break in the weather that allowed me to get outside and pick up branches and pieces that the wind littered our yard with . . . that's always a good work out.

Or, it could have been watching the birds and squirrels flitting around the yard during that same break in the storm. I still don't know how those tiny hummingbirds can fly around in those huge rain drops and not get knocked out!

Oh, okay, now I remember . . . it was the Pine Marten that tripped the motion light in our back yard while DH and I were in the hut tub last night. First time either of us have seen one . . . what a gift!!!!

LOL, our kitty ~ Spirit. caught a mouse last evening and pranced up to DH in the living room, and dropped it in front of his feet and meowed !!! Daddy, look what I brought you !!! LOL
Earlier the darn mouse had eaten the peanut butter out of the trap & didn't get caught !!! Spirit sat in the kitchen across from the area where the trap was and waited till it came back ! She reminded me of a sentinel or a gargoyal.
Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur. Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr, purr, purr ! LOL
After I washed her mouth out (just kidding ) She got an extra hug and some loving !!!
KEEP SPARKLING !!!

We found out that there's a chance the $438 ticket we got because we forgot to hang DH's handicap placard in the window could be dismissed . . . . he's on his way to the courthouse to take care of it . . . keeping my fingers, toes, and eyes crossed!!!

The best thing that happened yesterday? Well, I finally shed the stress of a team I'd been a member of for years . . . found I had to leave after a change of 'management' took it off in a totally different direction. Sad, but nothing I can do about it. It was time to shake it off and move on.

great church service! and today a great devotional to start off September!! I thought I would share it. It is from esword:

And when the seventh month had come, and the children of Israel were in the cities, the people gathered together as one man to Jerusalem” (Ezr_3:1,NKJV)

It was the Seventh Month, September by our reckoning, and the Israelites were still filled with the wonder of all that God had done to return them from Babylonian capitivity back to Jerusalem — charged by the king of Persia himself to rebuild the Temple of the Lord. This was truly astounding in every way.

We are told that they assembled “as one man. This singluar moment not only harnessed the great potential of a vast assembly of focused individuals, but it also unleashed a mighty revival in the city — and ultimately in the nation.

As we read Ezra’s account of what happened, three things stand out at the forefront of this historic move of God.

First, they rebuilt the altar, which had been destroyed by the Babylonians years ealier. This symbolizes “seeking first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness.” The Altar is where we worship. It is where we experience God’s presence, hear His voice, and find the power to do His will.

Second, they rekindled the fires of morning and evening offerings. This symbolizes prayer. They began their day, and ended it, in conversation with God. Obviously, the conversation lasted all day long. Did you know that God wants the same thing with you and me? He wants to walk with us, and talk with us as we move about the various affairs of our daily lives. He wants our lives to be ignited with the passion that comes from personal friendship with Him.

Third, they renewed their faithfulness to God’s Word. This symbolizes obedience. They had long forsaken the ways of the Lord, but now were returned to true devotion and faithful allegiance. “You shall now the Truth,” Jesus said, “and the Truth shall set you free.” We can find the freedom Jesus gives by renewing our commitment to the Word of God — seeking His face, hearing His voice, and doing His will.

This is the lesson we learn from Ezra’s revival in ancient time; and it serves as a pattern and a promise for us today. They sought His face, heard His voice, and did His will — and a revival transformed their land. And it happend in September.

What will this September hold for you and me?

A friend is invaluable if we stumble or fall on the path of life. "Woe to him that is alone when he falleth." "Brethren," says the Apostle, "if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness, considering thyself lest thou also be tempted.'" Let us watch for each other's souls; if any is falling away from the truth, or into some insidious trap, let us lift him up. Let us exercise the brotherly solicitude that Barnabas did for Paul.
Without companionship material things cannot satisfy. The ties of nature, friendship, and religious communion give a zest to a poor man's life, which the miser with all his wealth forfeits. It is all-important, not only in ordinary life, but pre-eminently in the pilgrimage of the spirit, to have fellowship with some kindred soul. Friendship ought to make our spirits glow. Perhaps this was one reason why our Lord sent forth His disciples by two and two (Mar_6:7).
In temptation a true friend makes us more able to withstand the devil. It is a real help in the hour of trial to have a friend who will appropriate the words of our Lord, saying: "I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not." There is no fellowship like that of Jesus, our Faithful Friend, who lifts us when we fall, chafes us when chilled with cold, and succours us against the Tempter. Does He not make the third in the threefold cord--"Where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them" (Mat_18:20).

Read and re-read Ephesians:

he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love
Eph 1:5 he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will,
Eph 1:6 to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.
Eph 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,
Eph 1:8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight
Eph 1:9 making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ
Eph 1:10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.
Eph 1:11 In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will,
Eph 1:12 so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory.
Eph 1:13 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit,
Eph 1:14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.

Amazing!

It is a full job to organize, sort, and then put away our jewelry making items! I spent this summer (I am a teacher) organizing my craft rooms, putting things where they need to be. I appreciate the hard job you just finished!!

Yesterday I spent the afternoon with my youngest daughter and her husband. It was a good visit, although I did eat WAY too much. I need to have more strength to say NO!

I will not allow the tragedies in my life to become a negative influence in the world.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

I'll revive this thread with a great yesterday!

My parents babysat my adorable 9-month-old daughter so i could have a "me" night. Took myself out to a Vietnamese restaurant for pho (hubby was working so I went on my own, which I enjoy), then did some beading. I completed an order for a store that will be carrying our (I have a business with a friend) jewellery!! SO exciting. :)

Celebrated the 4th of July Holiday by taking the kids to see a parade. We had never been to this one before but like it and will plan to go back next year. Always nice to discover a new "favorite" community event.

Thanks, EBURGITE.

Yesterday I was able to get 120 minutes water aerobics, water jogging and walking, in total, done.

Today, I am back with decluttering and organizing.

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.
