I can do all things ... Philippians 4:13 Hi everyone, welcome to my home page, I'm looking forward to this new journey and hope we can get to know each other and connect in some personal way. I love to talk healthy diet and love to share my Christian faith and love for Jesus Christ with others, ...love my husband more deeply than I thought a person could AND the neatest thing is, he loved me before I was the perfect size 10, 16, 20, 24, 26 or...how big do the sizes go?! LOL! :o) I love long drives in the country, love journaling, & reading Christian Historical Fiction. I love being healthy enough to go for long walks and site seeing [in my own back yard or state] Montana!

Other Information:
Favorite Quotations
"So when the devil throws your sins in your face and declares that you deserve death and hell, tell him this: "I admit that I deserve death and hell, what of it? For I know One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf. His name is Jesus Christ, Son of God, and where He is there I shall be also!" (By Martin Luther)
~~~~~~~~
I hear a lot of people say they are of this church or that church [or group], following after that person or this person [doctrinally]; labeled Calvinist, Armenian, Reform, home grown, etc ... come on guys, the Bible says "Is Christ divided?" 1Co 1:13 Only those who are putting their trust in "Christ's" Atonement are going to be saved ... "but cursed is the man that puts their trust & strength in men". Jeremiah 17:5-17

(These are my favorite quotes!) To be a God pleaser, not a man pleaser!!!

    Thank you so much for the invite. It's very kind of you. I haven't decided what I want to do yet. It's too soon for me right now. If you don't mind I will truly think about it. I have spent 10 years on Spark and never in my mind did I ever think that it would close down. I will let you know when I know.

    Welcome to this new month of June.

    What brings you joy? We all have different things that trigger thoughts and feelings of happiness or joy. What is most important in being able to find and feel the happiness or joy in our lives is being present to recognize it in the moment. Mindfulness. By doing this, you turn off all the extraneous stuff that is distracting, and constantly vying for your attention.

    Why not open yourself up to your happiness and joy? Let's use this new month of June to consciously be mindful and present. Let's be willing to open ourselves up to all the happiness our heart can hold! Actively seek out the things that bring you pleasure, happiness, peace, contentment, or better yet - pure joy. Allow life to bring you the spontaneity it has been waiting to give to you. As they come to you, and you begin to notice them, and absorb them into your heart and soul, thankfully allow yourself to sit and soak in the sunshine of each of those moments so lovingly sent to refuel your body, mind, spirit, and soul.

    Have a good week and an even better month!

    Hi sweet-teas! Sip, sip hooray - it's finally Friday! I'm stopping by to add a little sugar and sweetness to your Friday morning.

    Since I did the coffee giggles last week, I did not want you tea drinkers to feel neglected, or left out.
    Honest-tea, I do drink tea, but in its iced form, because it refreshes me and gives me a feeling of sereni-tea.
    My DH drinks tea, and his favorite is tea is 50 shades of Earl Grey.
    So what do you say . . it's time for us to have our own little tea par-tea!

    I have to say, that I think these jokes are definitely koala-tea!

    What kind of tea is hard to swallow?
    Reality

    What does a tea bag do when it's tired?
    It seeps.

    How does the Earl Grey tea bag greet his wife every morning?
    Oh Darjeeling, you are so brew-ti-ful!

    I think all politicians should be required to drink tea so they could have more honest-tea.

    What's a teapot's favorite folk song?
    O My Darjeeling Clementine.

    Tea Time:

    A father was giving his wife some much needed "me time" to go out and run some errands. When he asked his toddler daughter what she wanted to do, she told him that she wanted to have a tea party. He sat down at the small table and she brought him a cup of "tea" which of course, was just a cup of water. He lovingly complimented her on how delicious the tea was, and how much he was enjoying it. She kept asking if he'd like some more - to which he kept replying "Yes please."

    After they had shared several cups of tea, along with some small talk, his wife walked in the back door. He asked her to come into the room where he and his daughter were seated, and to sit down to see what his "Little Princess" had been doing since she left just because he thought it was so darned cute!

    Pretty soon the little girl came gingerly walking down the hall again with a cup of tea for Daddy, and placed it down on the table in front of him. She was smiling so proudly as her daddy politely picked up the cup, with his little pinky in the air, and elaborately sipped his tea.

    When he finished the cup of tea, his daughter asked if he would like some more to which he again replied "Yes please.". She picked up his cup, and left to refill it again.

    His wife looked at him, and then very calmly and quietly said, "You do realize the only place she can reach the water is in the toilet, right?"

    And finally before I go . . .

    Today's Thought: Remember the tea kettle . . .Even while up to its neck in hot water - it still continues to sing.

    Each of you is my just my cuppa tea, and I love each one of you so matcha.

    Thanks for regularly stopping by my page with your notes, quotes, support and encouragement.

    I hope you have a tea-riffic Friday and weekend!
