It is a call that is for me as an individual and for us as a body of believers.  It is a call to those who do not know God to come and join us in the worship of the one, true God. The…

Right on Target!

Hmm…  I was in the middle to trying to formulate my post and…  it published on me, completely unfinished.  So, if you received an unfinished post via e-mail, my apologies.  I’ll start over again. At the beginning of January, I laid out my weight loss goals.  It would take approximately 1.5 pounds per week to reach…

So Much Information!

Since I’m on a year long journey to reach my ideal weight and be healthy, I have read SO much information… much of it conflicting.  Here are some examples: Soy is really good for you.   Tofu, soy beans, soy milk, and all the soy powders added to foods is really bad for you.  Whole grains are essential to…

We’re All Imperfect Humans

I was reminded tonight of the fact that when you choose to post your thoughts and values in your blog online, not everyone will like you. I screen comments to my blogs simply because my blog is my “home” and just like I wouldn’t welcome crude behaviors and foul language in my real home, I don’t…

Count Your Blessings

For about a week I have had a song stuck in my head.  Remember the old movie, “White Christmas” with Bing Crosby and Danny Kay?   In that movie Bing sings a song that has the following lines: If you’re worried and you can’t sleep.

No Progress!

It’s been a hectic week and today was incredibly busy.  But, I needed to log in a report on my progress. Not only did I not lose weight this week, I gained 1 1/2 pounds.  But, I’m not concerned.  My “big slacks” are moving around on my waist.  That’s a good sign. Folks, if this…

Mulligan Stew

My Father-in-Law used to make Mulligan Stew every once in a while.  What that meant was that he took all the leftovers in the fridge from the week and made a soup out of them.  I was told that when they had been warned that it was Mulligan Stew night, my sisters-in-law would make sure…

Kids, Fun, and Homeschooling

If you have children, treasure every moment that you have with them. I love being a Mom.  What seems like only weeks ago I was changing my little one’s diapers and now he’s only about 4″ below my shoulders in height when I’m barefoot.  Wow, he’s grown fast.  It just reminds me to treasure every moment,…

Who Am I?

I really like this poem.  It says so much I don’t need to add anything to it. Who Am I? I am your constant companion, I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden. I will push you onward or drag you down to failure. I am at your command. Half of the tasks that…
