A Lesson on Prayer from James
Saturday, August 22, 2009     

I have been studying James this month. James 4: 1-3 gives us a lesson in pray. In verse 2 he says we don’t have because we don’t ask. We want and want. But the problem is quiet simple; we have left God out of the picture. When we leave out ... Read more

More Than This
Thursday, May 21, 2009

And So Begins the New Book
Thursday, April 02, 2009     

Five weeks ago a book in my life ended with the closing of the Center and my having to retire before I was ready. I saw this coming so in December 2008 I began to pray about what God would have me do. I never seemed to be really stressed about... Read more
Nearing the End Of a Book
Saturday, February 21, 2009     

I am only 5 working days away from retiring. I anticipated this being a great time in my life and under different circumstances it would have been. However with my place of employment closing it is bitter-sweet. I can't say that I am not a l... Read more
Here I Am
Thursday, January 15, 2009     

Here I am. Over 6 months into my diet. I can't believe how well I have done. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ever lose weight again. I just accepted that I was going to gain and get bigger and bigger. I even teased with people ... Read more

Approaching My First 20lbs
Friday, October 03, 2008     

I have decided to change my official weigh in day to Friday. I will continue to weigh on Tuesday morning but will also weigh on Friday. Why you may say? Because I don't tend to do well on the weekend. So, if I weigh on Friday I will see how... Read more

This Was Close!!!
