Do what you think is best and I will try to pop in when I can.

It would be nice to see things moving a little.....but, then what do I know? :-)

Love and prayers, Hope the transition goes well.

Should we begin a 2017 page or continue on this one? Also, if you wish, I can make a new page every month.

Let's work on getting the team active again.

Ali - nice to see you!!

Well my husband and I invested in a horse racing syndicate on the West Coast. We just love horses and horse racing. All we did was invest a small ain't and today the first horse acquired won!! And I had a wager of course! So blessed with what we won!

We have the same problem with a team captain amongst the group for years!

You could try reaching it to the team leaders to see if they are interested in staying leaders and you could contact spark people

Good question.....looking at their sparkpages there doesn't appear to have been
any activity for quite a while.

From a couple other teams I have been on, if there is no one to take over they
just leave it or pop in once in a great while.

Wish I could be of better help.

Yes, it depends on the circumstances but there are times when I am so tired, and "still"
have so much more to do to accomplish the goals, to finish the house, whatever,.....I will
eat in order to keep going.

There have been times when I have eaten out of boredom. I don't smoke, don't plan on it
and do not recommend it, but at times I have thought, hmmm, I can see how smoking,
having something to put in your mouth could help a person lose weight. :-(

I have been trying, if I see the feeling coming on, to eat things like the matchstick carrots,
I nibble...... or pistachio nuts, I might grab 2 or 3 at a time and until I get them out of the
shell, its not very many calories. The ideal thing is to do something when you get that
way, but I am too exhausted at that point and that is part of the problem. I am not physically capable of going for a walk.

Also, some stresses we need to take to the Lord, I have come a long ways on that but
I am also still working on that area, and maybe always will.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Morning,

Just wanted to check in on everyone. Hope you all are enjoying 2017 so far. We have had a few trials and my emotional eating is a little out of control. Today is a new day and I will be working on decluttering my life.

Any other emotional eaters?

It's great to see the post here. Laura you are one busy lady. I am sure the Lord has a plan even though you did not get the $3000.00.

Stay warm, everyone!
Blessings,

Winter Bible Camp is really coming along and we have 16 kids registers a month in advance!!

Praise God

Totally disappointed with the church budget - our annual meeting is next week report comes out a week before

ONCE AGAIN my request for a moderate stipend was cut. I asked for $3,000 for the year as part time Director of Children's ministry - not very much for sure - we decided on that amount at our Christian Ed meeting because the Youth leader was cutting back his hours and that amount was $3,000 so we figured it would NOT ADD to the budget from 2016 to 2017

Need to pray about this - there was grant for two years and I was paid from that from being a volunteer - as a volunteer I did Junior Church only - on the grant I added Winter Bible Camp which is HIGHLY successful, then Saturday morning outreach once a quarter and then Children's messages once a month for the children during church PLUS I mentor teens and bring the 5 and 6th graders up into junior leader positions to help teach and then mentor them as they go into high school - making disciples

Also we have GROWN our children in the church from 6 kids in Junior church to over 16

TRUSTING GOD in this - He knows I am disappointed - I do this for Him but we have so little babies in church BUT pay a nursery worker over $4500 a year! She doesn't even teach - just watches the kids in nursery - I just feel that the budge committee does not VALUE the work that I do - again I know I do it for the Lord, however, it would be nice if the church acknowledged it with a stipend

I hope everyone is doing well. I trust on this Lord's Day that everyone that is able is
getting ready to go to church this morning. (I am not able to go)

But, remember, go with anticipation. looking forward to the sermon, not just trying to get
through it so you can do something better later on.

Be prayed up, having prepared your heart, but also having prayed for your pastor as well.

Now, go off and have a glorious day in the Lord!

Love and prayers to you all.

Been busy all week We are getting snow again today. DH & I were out cleaning the snow from hanging over the house. We got a lot done, but still a lot to go. By the back door it was within 2.5 feet from the ground. Here is a picture of what we got done so far and a picture of out the front door.

Long morning at the PCP's - he was running about 20 minutes behind and of course I feel bad for any patients AFTER us because we go in together and go down OUR LIST

Let's see the good news - only a 2 pound gain in over 3 months for me and the includes Thanksgiving Christmas and vacations! HAPPY with that and working on getting rid of that

We discussed my neck/shoulder etc plus my fall so I had a set of cervical X-rays done just to make sure no compression fractures - the pain is better so we shall see BUT I am going to start taking ibruprofen DAILY 600 mg ONCE a day to help with inflammation WE are both in agreement I need PT BUT let me preface that with it will be over $80 a week for treatment PLUS my $2,000 deductible which my PCP feels is outrageous for copays so we are going to let my massage therapist work on it and I have some things I can do to see if we can AVOID the PT route

PLUS Linus is in therapy twice a week - put me in twice a week and I have NO LIFE NO SCHEDULE - and to be honest I have lived with this for years - I see such an improvement for Linus with ONE visit - I would rather spend the $ on him

For Colie it was a review of all the tests - so far RA has NOT shown up in his bloodwork just the scleroderma - HOWEVER our doctor said sometimes the RA does NOT manifest itself in the blood work - Colie's A1C JUMPED even with metformin so that is being increased as well it is now 7.1 up from 6.8 BUT steroids are an issue with his weight and the A1C -

AWESOME NEWS was Colie's breathing - the doctor could hardly hear any crackles or noises in his lungs and when Colie took a deep breath he said IT WELL GOOD and NOT STRESSED and so easy!! NOW THAT IS ANSWERED PRAYER AND AN IMPROVEMENT

They did blood work today and we shall see if they increase that CellCept to the max dose - is on the the next step up of 2000 mg a day and has done/tolerated it well - we shall see what the blood tests say and they may increase that to 3000 mg day - Colie has pulmonary function tests at the end of February so we are praying for improvement on those too

GOD IS IN CONTROL and we are trusting HIM in all things

There are times where we live that we can not make it to church. We live in a rural area and they do not always get the roads plowed till later in the day. We have already had 3 inches of snow and still coming down.

We had an ice storm about a week ago or so. The roads were un-driveable but praise God I was able to make it to church.

We didn't get any of the expected ice so did get to church this morning however dense fog set in during the afternoon so didn't attempt to go to Bible study this evening.

6 kids accepted Jesus as their savior during TEAM KIDS last Sunday....they all went forward this morning to become candidates for baptism...God is at WORK.

HAPPY LORD'S DAY

God really helped me with the Children's message which was REALLY directed to those in the PEWS who are not volunteering or serving

Asked the kids what does GO mean and they were all running around and saying THIS IS GO- then I asked about talents and abilities to serve - gave examples of people in the congregation serving

Then used the Bible verse "GO YE" and told the congregation we have several 6th graders mentoring the young ones, a 6th, 9th and 12th grader ALL teaching Junior Church and that the 9th and 12th grader were giving up school vacation time to teach and help lead Winter Bible Camp - then I CHARGED the congregation to GO YE and SERVE - because without help we would not have another Outreach - and we got the volunteers we needed!!

Currently have 11 kids registered!! AND we have JUST put posters up and started publicity!!

GOD IS IN ALL THE DETAILS

God Bless

Else......
If you can not make it to church you can always go to SBN and listen to Donnie Swaggart live service. Not sure where you live but it comes on mountain time at 9am. as we are 1 hr. behind them. You will always get a great sermon. This is what we do when we can not get to church.
Stay safe

Pouring down rain now and we are still under the ice storm warning. Will see how the roads are in the morning to decide on going to church or staying off the roads. I have a 15 mile drive to the church.

THANKS FOR THE PRAYERS - PLEASE CONTINUE AS LED

Here is the update

Update for Colie - Please continue to pray!!!

He met with the lung specialists today.

his O2 was 94 - they took him up three long flights of stairs and it dropped to 86 BUT on the way down the stairs it went up to 95! NOT BAD

His last labs showed his body is responding well to the CellCept and they increased the dose from 1000 mg a day to 2000 mg a day and will leave him on the steroids.

The Plan is to recheck his blood to see next Friday the 20th to see how those labs are and they may increase his CellCept to 3000 mg a day which is the maintenance dose

Steroids will continue at 20 mg until he can achieve the maintenance dose.

Pulmonary function tests on February 24th

We both see our PCP next Friday

AND our dog was sick while I was out - OH WELL

Stopping in to say Hi and to check in.
Things are well here. DS doesn't want to be in high school anymore. Says the other kids are hating him (which probably is not true as he has major social issues). Husband is working great in his new position! He was promoted to head of employment services (basically) and is 8-4 now instead of fluctuating shifts. I begin classes again on Tuesday so am trying to fill the time with productive activities instead of binge watching anything on Netflix. I do really well on food and exercise for about 3 months at a time then peter out. January is month 2, however I think December was more of a month of getting used to the idea that I won't be eating what/when I want and not being active. emoticon

Laura--prayers for husband's procedure today. Praying also that you'll have rest while it's happening, not stress.

Ida--prayers for warmer temps for you and across the north. Montana hasn't seen this cold and snow in a few years. Reminds me of the winters we had as kids. Even Idaho in the Banana Belt they are getting hit hard with snow. I lived there for almost 10 years and never had that amount of snow in town!

Here's to a great day looking for the small miracles in every day circumstances. I'm reading the bible in a year with a group of friends. We are in Genesis 37-44ish and am reading about Joseph. It reminded me to be aware of my dreams and to write down the ones I remember. Those are the ones that are important and with truth inside.

Matthew 6:33-34

Afternoon all from Boston

Asking for prayers for my hubby who will be seeing Lung Specialists tomorrow for his Interstitial Lung Disease which was diagnosed a couple of months ago. Currently he is taking the medication CellCept which is an anti rejection drug used for transplant patients AND steroids

ASKING GOD to KEEP REVEALING that this disease is caused by connective tissue diseases - schleroderm and RA - Scleroderma has shown UP in his blood and they believe RA is going to show up TOO!

ALSO PRAISE GOD - our Winter Bible Camp is next month and we have EIGHT children already pre-registered

I'm reading and studying a book by Jerry Bridges called "The Pursuit of Holiness". Excellent book, with tremendous challenges. "Be holy, for I am holy" . Holy living is not an option if we are truly one of His.

Ida, Elsie, Ali, and Laura! It's so good to see familiar names!
Kathy, welcome to the group.

I just have to say I am praying for all y'all in the snow and cold. I am so very thankful I am in the warmer climates. I went on a 4 mile hike in the Red Rocks of Sedona. I am not (after this winter) going to let winter fluff ever invade me again.

Morning All,

How is everyone? We had a great Christmas and so far 2017 is good. I just keep thinking last year at this time my ds and I were in Wichita for him to get treatment for his lymes. He is doing so much better.. He is in college and working! Praise God.

Hey if any one is reading this today, please pray for my daughter. My daughter is being tested today in many ways. Please pray for the Lords peace no matter what.

Praying for all. Laura it is great to see you post.

Hope you all have a blessed day!
Blessings,
Ali emoticon

Thank you for the prayers - I am feeling better and only had a temp for about 24 hours - my hubby was feeling a tad congested in his chest and THAT is of concern because of his lung disease but is feeling much better - my Dad too had congestion in his nose and God knows there is a TON going on out here on the East Coast for germs

One of my Mom's sayings when everyone was sick during the winter was Lord we need a good snow storm to clean the air - WELL WE HAD IT yesterday

Happy and Blessed to Sunday to all

Well I have been busy shoveling snow out here in Boston - lots of cardio over 3 hours! I was tired. Churches around our area canceled Sunday school and some even church. I decided NOT to go to church because it is slick - our sidewalks are bare to the ground with salt.

Our back stairs we used that special rock salt for dogs BUT that made it slushy and I fell down all four stairs and landed flat out on my butt. I was ALREADY sore from shoveling so this did not help. The poor dog was just sitting there looking at me and I was calling for my family to help BUT they could not hear me finally they couldn't understand why the dog was going crazy in the yard and looked out the window and saw me! As I said I fell on my butt and I was holding the rail so I sort of slid down the stairs and just landed on my butt - took 2 tylenol and thankful nothing else happened - my husband cleared off the stairs again and later on he went out and almost fell so We WILL WASH the dogs paws and use REGULAR rock salt/pellets

I was blessed to be a professional ice skater and when I knew I was going down I let both my legs flip out in front of me and landed like I would do in a skating fall - so thank you Lord for that knowledge and the blessing of that I will just be SORE and STIFF

I have my regular weekly therapeutic massage scheduled tomorrow so that will help

Unfortunately for me between the cancer treatment and the car accident my muscles in my head and neck area are always tight and an issue - shoveling snow does NOT help and then all the shoveling

HAVE A BLESSED DAY ALL AND GOD BLESS

Kathy,



I am Elsie a Missourian transplant from Michigan. I was married 43 1/2 years when God called hubby home. I also have 4 children--1 son and 3 daughters along with 11 natural grands and many step grands plus 9 great grands.

I have a very sweet German Shepherd mix who is 6 years old. She takes real good care of me......lol.......She is also a very good door bell.........lol

I am one of the librarians at a Southern Baptist church in Carthage, Missouri. I do volunteer in the hospital gift shop 3 to 5 times a month. Also, I work with the National Disaster Photo Rescue team. NDPR helps areas that have had a disaster reclaim and return photos that have been found after the disaster. This program began after the 2011 Joplin tornado. We returned over 16,000 photos to people in Joplin. Some of our members have gone to other areas to help them set up a recovery team for the photos.

Again...........welcome

Laura......pray you are feeling better by now and that your hubby or dad doesn't get the bug.

Elsie

Afternoon All

Didn't feel well on Tuesday but thought it could be from the massage on Monday - I suffer greatly from the car accident and cancer treatment BUT deal with it

yesterday it was the same and I took my temp and I never run one even when sick with infections so when I saw it was UP after taken a 600 mg ibuprofen I KNEW i was in trouble - i alternated with tylenol and the aches and pains are not as bad today and no temp

Could be a quick flu bug! Have sanitized EVERYTHING in the house BUT it probably is too late

My main concern is my 82 year old Dad and my husband who is taking auto immune suppressants so if you wouldn't mind lifting them once in a while I would so greatly appreciate it

GOD BLESS

and I must say OUR WINTER BIBLE CAMP for February school vacation has shaped up wonderfully through the leading of our Lord!!

Hi, This is my first stop in the Lounge, but since I usually check in on SP every morning, I thought a bit of time spent with like-believers would be a nice thing to add to my days.

I'm Kathy from PA, I've been married 40 years, have three daughters and a son, and 11 grandchildren.

I received God's gift of salvation when I was 21, and we belong to a conservative Baptist church. My favorite Bible verse is II Cor 5:21 "God made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him."

And that's my intro for today!

Happy Wednesday All

Tracking my food every day is paying off - I am down two pounds already!! I am tracking food for both my hubby and me - we are eating the same except he gets about 150 more calories.

We are waiting on the results from his last Rheumatoid arthritis tests praying the markers show the inflammation THAT way the lung doctors will stop questioning what is going on - trying to avoid an OPEN CHEST lung biopsy

Have a great one

Just checking in.

It's good to see familiar faces again! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years. Praying everyone is safe in the dreaded and dangerous cold weather the north is having. I'm so glad I moved 2 springs ago. It's a normal crappy Montana winter and I'm not there to be trapped! emoticon

I hope I can be on more in 2017. I have to stop yo-yoing, but classes start up again in about 2 weeks.

Have a blessed day. I have much more to do to get on track (in the house) before classes begin.

Morning All

Well I decided it was time to weigh in today! Was really dreading it too. We had 11 days in Hawaii (but we were busy) and then came home to spend 4 days away celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. We truly enjoyed THOSE days by ourselves and we only had ONE huge dinner while we were away. Then came Christmas and then of course into New Year's and we went away one night as well and had another fabulous dinner to celebrate my birthday

I JUST FELT I WAS GOING TO PAY for the last 10 weeks! Oh THANK YOU LORD - guess being careful around all the holiday and eating out paid off

I only gained FIVE POUNDS - so I am truly grateful of that!!

Just entered our meal plan for today and it is AWESOME with a few calories to spare!!

Very happy here

GOD BLESS

It has been awhile since I posted. God has blessed us with the ability to have my Dad at the 75th commemoration of Pearl Harbor.

Our rescue dog has many needs but we adore him!!

Y husband Colie has been diagnosed with a rare lung disease called interstitial lung disease. Blood tests are being run to ascertain the cause. Scerloderma has been shown in his blood work, however, he has no outward signs of it BUT that does not mean he does not have it. There are a lot of connective tissue disease that are genetic such as RA which his siblings gave. We would greatly appreciate prayers for a clear, concise diagnosis. In the meantime he is taking CellCept a. Anti rejection drug.

I retired but still working as a volunteer at my church as the Children's ministry director.

Happy New Year All

God Bless

Most people watch what they eat from Christmas to New Year's when they should be watching what they eat from New Year's to Christmas

It's a new day..
Track food is more important than tracking exercise at this point for me.
Hubs and I disassembled and re-assembled our storage unit. This fall we bought a pop-up camper and it can fit in the storage unit. Today we went through and combined a bunch of miscellaneous boxes and created a wall of stuff for sale. It's nice to have things less cluttered. Now on to my sewing area again.
Cleaned out the kitchen, cupboards, drawers, and fridge.
When I get to a weight I'm decently happy with, I can get rid of my size 14s instead of today's size 8s I put into the sale box. emoticon


I pray everyone has a safe New Year's night tonight. We're staying home and away from the amateurs.

I'm glad to be back here. You all have been on my mind and in my prayers.

Ida, that's funny! I moved from Montana to leave the snow and cold (and services). I enjoy seeing the snow on facebook from ARizona.

However, I hope you are keeping warm and being safe.

Somewhat slow board lately.

I'm glad some had a good Christmas. My family and I went to Phoenix and spent the day/night with my Mom. It was nice to be in the 50s temp wise, but it was still cold. We missed all the snow (small amount but big for AZ) that happened where we live and I'm glad.

Hope everyone has a good New Year and is safe.

Hi Outdoor girl,

We had a very snowy Christmas day. I made a turkey and the family stayed in and bundled up because of the storm. The night before was nice because we had a small get together with a few friends. It is really cold here . Its only fifteen degrees and the roads are icy. I trekked out tonight and I hit icy roads and fog. I am with you. I can't wait until Spring but in the meantime, I am sure we will have to endure a few more snow storms!

Anything is possible with a determined heart and mind.

first prayers are there for each and everyone that need them.

We had a quiet Christmas here. We were going to go to a friends home for dinner but the roads were so bad we decided to just stay put in our home. DH had slid off the road the day before due to ice tis is one good reason to stay home. I had some ham in the freezer from Thanksgiving that I thawed out and made a ham, potato and carrots for our Christmas meal. We are still cold and snow is due tonight again. Can not wait for Spring to get here. Just like everyone else.

Have a great day, stay warm everyone and have a great New Year. God Bless you all.

Hello everyone. It's been a long long time since I've been here. My journey has been up and down with a few major incidents. We moved to Arizona in April 2015. My son is now in high school and surviving in his self-contained classroom. Hubby is a job coach for adults with disabilities. I'm in college getting an Associate of the Arts and then up to Northern Arizona University for Special Education in Fall 2018.

Some of the downs: my son is now medicated for aggression and hallucinations. I'm medicated for depression and as of today high cholesterol. I cannot seem to get it under control, even my weight is back up. It's been a rough couple hours since I've received the news. I guess I walk 3 miles a day and no red meat. I don't know what else to do.

Pray for me for my mental health to improve. I am starting a new semester 1/17. My family to accept the new and improved eating routine. :(

Does anyone remember Jim Jones and the infamous kool-aid murder/suicides?
I was young when this happened, but I thought it was portrayed that he was a Christian. Then today I found out he wasn't a Christian at all! Did anyone else know that he was an atheist? And that a phone interview claims he said his bishop knew he was an atheist?
All of this is news to me.

Outdoorgirl may God give you a quick recovery
Congratulations on the bid for your home

I have another question for anyone who'd like to respond.
Someone gave a subscription to National Geographic to my son. (We don't like the mag but I just thanked the person without comment) last night I found out the first issue has a boy dressed in girls clothes and long hair and articles about transgender. I contacted National Geographic to cancel the subscription and to reimburse the giver. However, do I contact the giver and explain the situation or do I stay mum hoping the company actually reimburses the giver?

This is the first year that I am not celebrating the holiday by decorating. I will celebrate the birth of Christ on the 25th.

Reason...... I have been sick, been in the hospital for minor heart surgery, our house has a bid on it as it was up for sale. We have 5 foot of snow on the ground and blocking some of our windows. I have been down in the dumps and just do no feel he Christmas season.

I do wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and hope ha I is a safe one for you.
God Bless you all

JPPERSELL - I agree. After watching the video and giving it much thought and doing my daily Bible reading, I've come to these conclusions;
1. most if not all, were not really following their religion
2. they don't know much if anything correct about Christianity
3. they don't know much about their torah, just as (sadly) a lot of Christians do not know much about the Bible.

The video actually makes me sad, that there are so many people lost and how they scoffed at Christianity.

STRNGNGRNDED-

In my humble opinion they don't understand that Christianity began with Jesus however Paul planted many Christian churches.

Anything is possible with a determined heart and mind.
