No mountain dew - successful each day, none fpr 46 days
daily book reading - done i missed 2x but then did it the next day
Organizing/ Cleaning with gratitde - could do the cleaning each day, but i often lost focus and the prayer full attitude

I didn't mean to suggest that we were perfect by any means, but you had been adhering to your promises perfectly until your little slip. I'm glad we're both on track again!

Oh, I never claimed to be perfect, but Lent has a way of making me stronger! I love it; we will have a strong finish. I think it ends on Holy Saturday if I'm not mistaken! I'm looking forward to attending the Holy Thursday mass tonight at church.

Yes! I also had a time of temptation Friday when, out of the blue, I had a craving to have a beer with my friend, but the moment passed, and I'm still keeping all of my promises!

Reading my missal, Mom fell Friday and we went to emergency but, she is home...
she is 93.. praying for my Critters.. emoticon


Take time to THINK...It is the source of power.Take Time to READ..It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege.
Be FRIENDLY, It is the road to happiness.. take time to LAUGH..it is the music of the soul.
Take time to Give it is too short a day to be selfish.. Take time to DO CHARITY..
it is the key to heaven.

Take time to THINK...It is the source of power.Take Time to READ..It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege.
Be FRIENDLY, It is the road to happiness.. take time to LAUGH..it is the music of the soul.
Take time to Give it is too short a day to be selfish.. Take time to DO CHARITY..
it is the key to heaven.

doing good....reading missal, saint of the day, walked at the grocery store Saturday one hour..

had a chat with the mechanic who did not bother to call me Wednesday after we had made
an appointment for him to pick up my car......I tried to be nice but was upset because I waited and no show...he has lots of work so he just thought I won't call her, I know he is busy but, anyway I had to be kind and, maybe now maybe he will call in two weeks...so difficult for me without work and money and, no transportation.. emoticon

I will survive emoticon

I'm being tested on buying off the Internet and the item has to do with my GoldenDoodle. So far I've abstained. I'm praying. I'm doing my 40 day revival on day 15 (CBN).

I have been doing well on all my resolutions - so well in fact, I have added a couple of new practices. I did have one slip on the Rosary for Saturday, but am back on track. For quite some time now my doctors have been urging me to loose weight - after all isn't that why I'm on SP? So after checking with my kidney doc the other day, today I started in on South Beach. It seems no matter what I try, that type of program is about the only thing that I am successful with. And on one of my other teams we hare having a 100 day challenge knitting. I put down a minimum amount of time just to get me moving. Of course I can do more, but the idea is more to be consistent.So far on that I am 2 for 2 days. Even tho losing weight was not part of my original plan for this Lent, it has moved in. In the past, once I get past the first 3 or 4 days then I have very little problem sticking to the program. I definitely need the loss as there has been some changes in tests and a medication change, which is not a good thing.

When all your desires are distilled, you will cast just two votes: to love more and to be happy.

Day 13 going well...despite all the chocolate goodies out for the women's event at our church today; I even brought some home for hubby, but somehow, the Lord is keeping my mind on Him...NOT on the chocolate, so it really did not bother me...unlike yesterday when I wanted it, but DID NOT!!! PTL!!! Prayed the rosary, read/studied from the Bible and read today's little black book segment.

My former confessor (may he rest in peace) would always say to the school kids during Lent: "We were not made for STUFF, but for GOD."

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

I love Lent!! You may remember me saying it this time last year. It is my favorite part of our Liturgical Calendar. I love love LOVE attending The Stations of the Cross. Does not feel like a "duty" or "Sacrifice"....it is something I love. Friday I really wanted to do some snacking but I did NOT! Jesus is more important to me than some yummy calorie ridden treats.

God Bless you all!

Well done!

I was wanting some Diet Coke as well, but NO!

It will taste better if I choose to have some on Easter Sunday if I deny myself now. Plus, it is such a little thing for me to give up, when so many do without so much.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

I have had a hankering for chocolate today, but I WILL NOT give in!! Did my Bible study, little black book reading...and NO chocolate!!!

Barbara .....that's what my friends call me! Never cared for the name Barb.

Make it a blessed and healthy day! IT IS YOUR CHOICE!

Remember how special you are and how you are soooooo worth it to be healthy and fit!!

BELLACUDDLES - you're so right. I need to tell him to "get behind me, satan!".
