Every evening we do devotion with our boys before they go to bed. Hubby and I use to read the Word ourselves. Then hubby ran across a dramatic reading that is awesome in the amount of time it took to make it and all the actors they used. We are reading through the Word for the 3rd time since we started. Right now we are in Job and I was thinking - oh no - kids are going to be bored. Oh my - the dramatic recording is so interesting. As my son said, satan really sounds like a sicko. His voice is eerie on here if I may so myself. Anyhoo, it is so much nicer to use this than hubby and I reading it ourselves to them especially when it comes to all the begats! LOL!

Blessings,
Julie

Praying you all are doing well

Today my daughter and I will be walking to Cappy's. It's like a farmers market and they are open all year round so I'm happy about that. I'm going to wear my watch to see how many minutes it take from my place and back. They have some fruit and veggies and some sea food so I'll be getting them today. And when we get back I'll go on sp and track my walking on my exercise tracking
I slept real good last night went to be at 10 and woke up at 7:30 and I feel good.
Have a nice day talk with you later and tell her how thinks went.

Hello all,

I am finally out of fibro fog and back into the swing of things. I am reading 2 Chronicles and will begin Ezra probably tomorrow. I love reading the OT because it so mirrors our society and it waywardness away from God. Looking forward for the weekend.

Praying you all have a great weekend.

Sandy

Just wanted to say Hi to everyone, especially those of you who have been on this site for a long time, you know who you are :) I know I have become a very infrequent poster but I still think of you often, I just don't get on that often because when I do it ends up being an hour or more as it has already today. I hope you are all doing great. I've read some of the posts, though I know that I could never catch up with all the happenings here recently.

Hugs and Prayers, Melody

For some reason my legs are sore today.........UGH!!

Happy Lord's Day All!! Didn't get to go to church today. This cold is finally breaking up so am coughing too much and don't want to expose anyone else to it either. Glad it is on it's way out!

Sassy thanks for sharing the rainbow with us!! They are so beautiful!! I actually saw one end on the road right out our front window! We had rain yesterday and supposed to get more today and maybe tomorrow. The temps are cool today (76 degrees) and that is a nice and early change for us! We can be 80 in Dec!!
Glad you are coming out of the fibro fog and hope you have a wonderful day!
Love your kitty profile pic!!

Elsie hope the rest of your trip was as good coming home and hope you are home safely now!
Thanks for sharing about your bee stings. Obviously I haven't had a bee sting for a very long time. Didn't know all bee stings didn't leave stingers! Now I do! Didn't know what it might have been if it wasn't a bee. It is finally all healed up.

Hope Everyone has a wonderful Lord's Day!!

Daddy's Gir.......last week I got stung by a bee at my sister's house that didn't have a stinger but my finger was itchy and numb for 3 days.............Samantha also got stung there and her finger did the same thing...

We were on the road by 7:30 this morning (Eastern time) and I drove for 12 hours. We are 45 to 60 minutes from St. Louis and 6 to 7 hours from home...good travelling so far and mostly very little traffic...

Praise the Lord,

It has been a good day. We had a strong thunderstorm and now the sun is shining. I even got to see a rainbow. When I see rainbows, it reminds me of the promises of God. He provides and controls our things for our benefit and blessings. I am enjoying a relaxing day after coming out of fibro fog. God is good to bring me back from it. I enjoyed my Bible reading this morning and will do my prayer journal tomorrow as well as work on seminary classes.

Blessings to you all,

Sandy

Get to feeling better. It is still unseasonably hot here and will be in the 90's again today. We are under extreme fire danger warning still. By now, we usually have a good amount of rain, but it has not rained much since May, and that is not normal.

Happy Friday All! It is another pretty sunny day here. So want to be ready for Autumn but DD still wants summer and swim time. ;-) All the stores are decorating for Autumn or Christmas already! I am ready for a Grandchild. ;-)
I did get my skirt finished yesterday.

Elsie how fun!! Is this your DSis first Great Grandchild? Sorry your trip to the Ghost town got rained out!!
Thankfully your DB's trailer did not get hit by the tree. Glad you finally have internet!

Laura thanks for telling me it felt the same. I never got a good look at whatever got me and I had no clue. It sure hurt for a long while. Didn't seem to have a reaction to it so that is good too!! There was no stinger left behind but guess not all bees do that?
Praying you get some answers soon.
Glad the children's programs are doing well.
Sorry DH is having to work such long hours. Hope he doesn't over do.

Hugs to all and Happy Friday!

Updates:

Met with the developers Wednesday night - they weren't shocked with our 1.5 Mil but said we are close in numbers. If we sell I told them I need time to look for a house and if they are reducing our price I was not paying rent to them so LOTS of stuff going on there

Went to an Open house last night and the realtor did not show up - same realtor that I had a problem with - from the outside of the house/condo it needs paint and repair CROSS that one off the list

Still looking and now we are trying to see if we can stay in Southie - depends on the size of the rooms I guess

One option is to DO NOTHING and wait as well - all this is wrecking havoc on my sleep though I did sleep well last night

Getting in a good 40 minute swim almost every day this week with the heat and really ENJOYING IT. Taking Linus out for walks early in the AM it is TOO HOT for him later in the day

Colie had to do a double yesterday because someone called in sick - I picked him up last night from work and he was up and out at 6:15 today

Sent out the Save The Date cards for our Children's activities and we are already getting people registering for Winter Bible Camp - guess they had fun lat year!! This is encouraging!!

Swimming in the pool and RAKING LEAVES - I got a half a bag this AM before I went out for a walk -

Enjoy the weekend all - God Bless

Daddy's girl......the baby is a girl

Today we were going to visit a ghost town in one of the state parks but when we got there someone ripped a hole in the sky and let all the water out.

There was a wicked storm at the campground while we were gone that blew down a tree that was near my brother's trailer.

We have been without internet most of the day due to the storms.

Saturday morning we will be leaving for home and should get there sometime Sunday.

Hi All!! Hope Everyone is having a good September so far! It is another pretty, sunny day here. Am looking forward to some cooler weather towards the end of the month.
Got a skirt almost made yesterday. Hope to finish it and get another one started. Nice to have some thing new to wear. ;-)

Pam you did wonderfully then. Proud of you and glad you can be home now! Love having you back with us!! When do you have stitches removed?

Amanda so glad things are going so well! Congrats!! Wise you know what to work on too! Hope it comes together quickly for you!

Elsie sounds like you have a lovely place to stay. My family has been to Watersmeet a few times. It is a lovely area. Are you anywhere near there? But see from the map, that is a large area for sure!
Hope the newly weds will be happy and have a healthy little one! Do they know if the baby is a boy or girl?
Have a good visit with your family!!

Kay glad you are enjoying your Bible Studies. I agree there are some hard things in Ezekiel. I think some of Daniel, Jeremiah and Isaiah are really hard to understand too.

Hope Everyone has a great day!!

I'm reading through the Bible and I'm in Ezekiel and parts of that are hard to understand! I'm not lying, I have to go over it several times;
I'm also leading a ladies Bible study that Beth Moore has written: "Children of the Day" on I and II Thessalonians. It is so good! Loving it.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

We are the grateful recipients of a beautiful sunny morning over the lake. We are on one of the bays of Lake Michigan in the upper peninsula of Michigan at a small privately owned motel.

Daddy's girl-I didn't know there was going to be a wedding until about I got up here. It was a quickly decided wedding. Elani is about 8 months pregnant and they finally decided to get married before the baby is born. Not very many were notified or invited. I got to go simply because I was at Mae's when the wedding occurred

We will be going to the campground where Mae and Dale (sister and brotherO are in a few minutes.

Take care...........Blessings...........Elsie.

About 6 weeks into my new job and enjoying it. The main thing I need to work on is organizing my time when I have 5 or more patients. I know it will come with time. The other thing I am sure i will need to work on is asking my colleagues for help when I am swamped. I am a part of a great team which i am greatful for.

Hi Everyone!! So nice to be able to jump right back into the week after the holiday yesterday. Often my whole week is off but this long weekend I was able to stay on track and have things in order!! I cut 2 skirts out and hope to get them made this week. Will need to purchase a blouse to go with one of them but that is ok.

Pam so glad your surgery went well and you are back with us! Any therapy or anything required?

Laura so sorry you were stung! I was stung or bit by something a couple weeks ago while doing yard work. I saw it on my hand but shook it quickly before I got a real good look! It felt like fire for 24 hrs and was swollen for 3 - 4 days. I used meat tenderizer on it to pull out the poisons too.
Glad Colie and Ross were coming to make sure you were alright! You have a great family!!
How is Linus?

Think I am finally get caught up with my SP posts!!
Hugs to all!!

Not sure if I told anyone I got stung by a bee. I know I had posted it on FB. Anyhow I felt this thunk on my head and thought it was a leave or something so I brushed my fingers through my hair and unfortunately it was a yellow jacket -

I did not have my Epi-Pen kit and I was on my way to a local restaurant to drop off some goodies for the staff so went the two blocks and got ice to put on the sting. I texted Colie who was not home at the time but as I was walking back from the restaurant he was coming up the street with Ross - Christina had my Epi-Pen kit waiting when I got home and I said IF YOU SHOOT ME WITH THAT - YOU HAVE TO CALL 911 NEXT!! I am a little shaky BUT my breathing is fine let's get these fingers on ice. I immediately took a large dose of benadryl and tried to quiet myself down. It worked. My finger got stung about 3/4 times and it has been painful but I am icing it, using meat tenderizer to draw the venom out and obviously still taking Benadryl. That happened on Friday night Finger is swollen and itchy - a moderate reaction to the stings so I am coping with it.

Got a Christian Ed board meeting tonight and this past Sunday Colie and I gutted out (mostly me) and reorganized my shelving units and cabinets for the Children's Ministry NOW I can move stuff from my house to my closets at church.

We meet with the developer tomorrow night and give him our counter offer. Would appreciate prayers and good thoughts - not sure what is next if we do not get our asking price. Especially since I now know about $100K goes in Capital gains taxes both Feds and State - Can you imagine you end up paying about 28% in taxes!

Enjoy your day all

I just want to thank all of you for the goodies and birthday wishes that you sent to me. Thanks for being such wonderful, caring friends. We got through mother in law's burial, but my brother in law is now back in the VA in Wisconsin, and it does not look like he is going to make it this time. Please keep Craig in your prayers.

Good Afternoon,

Beautiful sunny cool day here.

Mae's granddaughter's outdoor wedding yesterday was very nice. God held the rain off until it was over and the clean up was done, then boy did it pour down.

Getting ready to attend a family camp out for 4 days before heading home.

Welcome to the group ANNIEMARY5K.

Just wanted to give you all an update. Loving my new job working as a RN at an area hospital, okay it is a month old now.

Kinda cloudy here in the Nashville, TN area also. I think it is supposed to be like that all weekend. I hope that midweek the sun shines, but isn't too hot as I have go to mow the lawn. Tonight I think I will work on washing dishes so that I have clean tupperware to put some meals in and freeze for work.

I hope everything is going well for everyone.

Good Morning,

I am back at Mae's until Tuesday morning so will have more internet access.

Cloudy and cool here this morning with scattered misty rain which isn't good for Mae's granddaughter's outdoor wedding this evening. They are outside setting up tents/canopies now along with chairs.

I am down 1.4 pounds from when I left home on August 10.

prayers to all.......Elsie

Morning all

Life always seems busy! Went to the lawyer and NOW I totally got it with the Capital gains tax , gift tax and so on and so forth. Lawyer drew up durable power of attorney which I did not have for my Dad so that is a RELIEF - he was awesome. Gave us areas of Quincy where we should look for a house and where not to look - one of the houses we really liked was in the section of NO you don't want to live there so that was good to hear. His daughter is a real estate broker and we will work with her to BUY our house - as for selling the lawyer gave us more fabulous tips in working with the developers. He actually said the developer could take our new houses and leave them standing, gut them out and redo for about $100K or less and landscape the yards as well the sell them for a mil each! We hadn't thought of that - he also told us what our LOW # for an offer should be and what he felt was a fair price for the houses. It was a very good meeting ALL AROUND - NOW I am waiting for his bill!! Have not a clue but I can move what little I have in the savings around because for the 90 minutes or so we were there we got so many questions answered!! We meet with the developer on Wednesday night - SAY A PRAYER ALL!!!

Still hard to think about selling and moving - it is difficult to leave what you grew up in but our neighbor is NOT the same and we are having problems with the young college students who park next to our cars in the garage - I actually took a photo of how they park and sent it to the woman I rent from and she said I will fix it. They park over the line and we cannot get our cars in - Christina can get hers in more than I can. For me not at all - good thing for the most part I have been on the street but that is about to change

Heading out to see the Constitution turnaround and a quiet day.

Have a great weekend all

So hey, I'm relatively new here & trying to be more active on this team. Happy Friday! What does everyone have planned for this weekend? I'll probably be taking it easy since I had a small procedure done on the back of my scalp yesterday & now I'm suffering through work.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

I'm leading a new Bible Study and enjoying that - 15 ladies on Monday nights and 9 on Thursday mornings. It is on Thessalonians.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

Hi Ali I am so sorry about your children, I have a suggestion but you may already have been down this road, have you tried a naturopath, I find they can help so much, praying they make a speedy recovery.

Morning Friends,

Long time, I know. How is everyone? We have started back to school and are off to a good start. My ds is doing O.K. considering the Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. The dr. is now checking him for lymes. My dd has been getting better since her issues this summer. We are still seeing dr. I am just happy we homeschool.

I just do not understand why both my children are so sick. Praying for complete healing for both. I am open to any suggestions.

Enough about that. I skimmed the recent post to try to catch up. Did everyone have a good summer. I know I have been MIA a lot. Did anyone do anything special?

Have a great day!

Blessings,
Ali emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone, what a lovely day yesterday, we went kayaking with friends and we had the opportunity to view seals then lunch with our friends, before heading to an employee's potluck supper at Wayne's employers lake cottage.
Hope everyone also had a real nice Sunday :-)

Last week I decided I had enough! Enough of feeling sluggish and tired. I had gained weight up to 148.1! I have a FITBIT scale that syncs to everything else including Spark. So, lately, my weight has been going up and down. It will show two pounds lost here and there. So, it looks like I am really losing weight when in reality I am not - until now! Beginning today I plan on weighing myself every Monday morning. Last week - I believe it was Friday - I took a picture of myself - mainly my face - then I saved it with the date and weight. I decided to begin drinking my water like I should be doing and then some. I have drunk 75 ounces a day. This morning I weighed and was down to 142 something. Whoohoo! I am determined to lose the weight I need to lose once and for all! I am tired of feeling blah! With having a six year old and turning 48 soon I have got to take better care of myself! I can do it and I will do it! Here is to healthier living.
Blessings,
Julie

P.S. I will eat better, exercise (which I have been doing) and drink my water - no diet, no drinks, no nothing else. I will just do what I can do naturally!

P.S.S. - With my knee drama last year, I lost 20 pounds just by watching what I ate - no exercise - nothing. So, surely, I can take it off again!


Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

I can do all things through Jesus Christ who gives me strength! Philippians 4:13

Thanks you Julie for posting our prayer requests and thank you everyone for praying!!

The baby shower was wonderful! Lots of fun and fellowship and sweet gifts for our baby. One of the ladies at the shower has been a friend of mine since I first married and moved here. She came to the showers of each of my children and now to the shower of the first grandchild!! That is something not even my Sister or Mother was able to do!!

Hugs and blessings to you all!

Had my teeth cleaned last night - that is SUCH an ordeal for my jaw since my jaw and neck muscles do not work properly because of the radiation - ended up taking a muscle relaxer and a pain killer for it last night - kept a heat pack on the jaw muscles last night - it will take a few days for the jaw to go back into alignment

Praying for our country and for the world - the news definitely has us praying extra hard

God Bless you all

Hello Friends,
Laura glad you could take a step back and slow down a bit.

Anjay so glad you are feeling better. Praying it stays that way!

Joanne the exercise has been non existent this week but not giving up. After the baby shower things should move along better again. The quilt is done and I need to get pics posted of it on my page so you all can see it. I need to get it laundered and sent off to the little one. Am starting the one for my Grandbaby and it will be simpler, which is the parents' choice!

Hugs to All!

Good Wednesday afternoon everyone. Have a little more time today so can read the posts and respond. Did get to the gym this morning and walked on the treadmill for 45 minutes followed by light weights for 15 minutes. Still plugging away and hoping that next week will show a loss.

Anjay sorry you have been in such pain. I can only imagine what it is like. I have a little arthritis of the spine (neck area) and feel it at times, so what you have been diagnosed with sounds so much more painful. I am a little unclear, on the muscle imbalance. Are they telling you that the spine issue is what causes your muscle imbalance? Praying for you at this time.

Laura, it sure sounds like you have been a very busy lady. I am glad that you have found a good Tax Attorney as the legal ramifications sound very confusing. Praying that all goes well with your appointment and that you will be able to work your real estate agent or find one that is more in tune with your needs. Enjoy your time away with Colie, you have more than deserved it.

Daddy's girl, no I am not giving up however, it is discouraging and frustrating. Have fun at the baby shower. Let us know how did it goes. Keep us posted on how the quilt is coming along. How is your exercise routine coming?

Ckay enjoy the bible study. I enjoy doing Beth Moore studies as she is so down to earth. I have had the pleasure of hearing her in person, it is so encouraging.

Elsie sorry the flea market didn't turn out to be as much fun as you thought it would be. How is the sale of the 5th wheeler going? Any offers yet?

Dorothy sorry to hear of your fever at night. That is no fun as if you are like me, it disrupts your sleep. Which I can only imagine is not good for lupus either. It has warmed up a little here so that is okay. I actually enjoy the temperatures we have been getting as it is great for sleeping.

Amanda glad that you are enjoying your job. How is your meal prep coming along? That is a great part of the journey, learning to plan ahead rather than just grab and go. Yes the devil is VERY sneaky he knows exactly where to attack us and when to do so. I have found that when I ask God, in my morning prayers, to give me the strength to stick to my healthier lifestyle it is much easier to do.

Ali, Julie, Born, hope you are all well. Praying for you all.

Time to go, so take care ladies and have a blessed evening,
emoticon Joanne

Hi everyone sorry I have missed a few days I had the muscle imbalance clinic on Monday. I did get answers but not good ones, I also had to endure excruciating pain.. Seemling the ligaments at my neck are not strong enough to support the spine, hence the top of my spine twisted, which in turned trapped a nerve. They had to freeze my neck and shoulder after 4 injections the doctor decided I could not take anymore, I am not a crier but these injections, it was like battery acid running through the needle it was awful. Then the physiotherapist had to manipulate the spine back in place untrapping the nerve. At the moment I have tape holding my spine in place and a bilateral brace. Both are uncomfortable, I go back in 3 weeks to see how things are progressing. I will wear the brace through the day and the tape at night, we are not sure if this is going to have to be permanent time will tell. As for my wrist she did not even look at it, and said they will at a later date. But today the neck pain is minimum, I can turn my head with little pain and my leg worked fine today, this is the best day I have had painwise since early May.

Updates:

OK - let's start with the MOST stressing and that is the housing issue

Have the name of a wonderful Tax attorney and most reputable and a Christian! - his nephew is also a youth director at a church we work with so that will even make this easier

Meet with him next week - Colie and I are also going to change our wills and do a revocable trust as well - we have been talking about it SO NOW is the time while we are meeting with him. We can make the sale of the two houses stagger as in we get almost 1.2 million and Dad gets the rest which would help with the Capital gains tax BUT that is why we are meeting with him I am really good with $ and numbers BUT I want a PRO to guide me PLUS better news is HE will be our lawyer when we sell these

NIGHTMARE TIME on the house tours - so I email the RedFin rep and say are we still on for the showing on Monday night and I got a reply well I tried to call you yesterday to let you know there might be an offer on the house and since YOU are using your two houses to BUY this one and they are not listed you will have MORE difficulty in getting anyone to accept your offer - NEEDLESS to say I whipped up a SCATHING email back - saying YOUR job is to show us houses when we ask and NOT question what we are using for $$ - yes I said we would like to use these houses for payment BUT you do not know my financial situation plus pardon the pun in the last 3 weeks THINGS have developed quickly with news we might sell and I have offers I have not even solicited and then I said I was rather disappointed in how the tours last Thursday all got canceled and one was STILL on their page listed as active

She replied and said NO pressure to get you to listed but offered us another agent to work with us if we could not work with her - SO that is ALL UP in the AIR

WHAT we have decided to do is TAKE A STEP back - see the lawyer get things settled there

Next see where Colie's work might end up because as is if we move to Quincy it is a hike on the red line BUT just one train at the moment to work

Deal on the table with developer is THERE and not going anywhere as he said so we have TIME

With that off my plate I can relax a bit

My elderly client who has had issues called me 4 times today and I went over GOOD FOR ME ONE HOUR ONLY and no charge and got her computer straightened out not sure what is going on between her and hubbie BUT he certainly keeps changing the start up screen so she cannot find anything - OH and GET THIS she wanted to take me house hunting in her neighborhood so we could be close - THAT AINT HAPPENING

Taking my Dad to my Mom's grave tomorrow - Dental cleanings tomorrow night - OH JOY not!

Friday we head to away by ourselves for the weekend! It will be great to get away from it all

Needless to say I am beyond in agony with my jaw and neck muscles and the cleaning AINT gonna help OH WELL

Sending much love and hugs

Joanne glad t see you dropping by! Sorry no weight loss. It is frustrating! But don't give up!! It took time to gain and it takes time to lose!

CKay hope you enjoy the Bible Study!

Grocery shopping is done for another week. We are having company once and maybe twice this week! DS and Ddil will be able to keep coming over each week. They thought the childbirth classes would be on the day they normally come here. ;-) This weekend is the baby shower and life is busy! ;-)

Hugs to all!

Just dropping in for a quick "Hi" to all of you. It has been rather quiet the past few days. Hope everyone is doing well. Yesterday's weigh in was rather disappointing, after working so hard all week, exercising six out of seven days, I stayed the same. I know it is better than a gain however, I truly believed (since the gym scales said I was down from last week) that I would at the very least lose a quarter of a pound. However, this is a new week and hopefully the scales will finally move down next week.

Gotta run, take care everyone and have a great afternoon,

It's a beautiful day here in Michigan but rain is expected tomorrow.

I boxed up more stuff in the 5th wheel this morning. It has been moved out by the road so hopefully it will sell.

Joanne I am doing ok. Wish that I could send you some of this hot weather but at least we are getting rain in the afternoon or late at night so I don't have to worry too much about the grass drying out. Have been taking it easy because of the fever that I run at night and I think that is my lupus is flaring up because I don't have it during the day and that is one of the lupus symptoms.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

thanks, Julie for doing the prayer list..

God's gift to you: a clean slate every day: your gift to God: what you put on that slate....

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


Do your best today; do better tomorrow

The more I sit...the hungrier I get!!!!!

To lose my seat, I must move my feet!!

I plan to lose more in 2014.

Glad things seem to be going well for most. I am doing okay. I have one more week on day shift before I go back to being a night shift nurse.

I am needing to be more motivated tomorrow than I was today. I have some meal prep to do for my lunches. I also need to work on staying away from the grocery store to do it, so I don't grab a bag of potato chips that I am so craving. (The Devil gets sneaky at times, okay, always.) Today just kind of laid around. Need to also get a few bills paid now that my paycheck has hit the bank.

Wishing all a great week.

Blessings,
Amanda, RN
