Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

Eating right at the retreat was much easier than I thought it was. I took a bag of healthy snacks and treats just in case. There was a salad bar and plenty of fruits and water. I DID eat cheescake (and carrot cake!). I allowed myself one treat and passed up a lot of other […]

Jail

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

When James got to his “J” page in Cursive Success, one of the words on the page was jail. I told him to just cross it out. He got a huge smile and did just that. In small ways, we are reclaiming the power jail  held over our lives. The story’s not over yet. It’s […]

Works of God

Sunday, March 7th, 2010

Is anyone out there blessed? We are! God is so good. I’m thankful that I got to spend a couple days away catching up on my scrapbooks. I got 35 pages done and visited with my pastor’s wife and a friend from church the whole time. I’m thankful that I got to see my little […]

From Outside the Frame

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Free graphics for your blog. I found the frame above there and the comments graphic on my sidebar. This article on Forgiveness and Consequences is thought provoking. Make a map of places you’ve visited. A handy calculator to figure out how many calories you’ve burned. This couple on Shorpy looks so sweet. What do you […]

Things I’m Lovin’

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

This really helps me when my neck or back are hurting badly. Good stuff! Arnold’s Sandwich Thins This may not be the tastiest piece of bread you’ll ever eat, but it sure helps me stay on my eating plan! I can make a quick sandwich or use it for a hamburger bun and they are […]

Praying Scripture for my husband~Repost

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

(a little late!) I believe that praying Scripture is a powerful way to pray. Jesus used Scripture when he prayed. Matthew 4:1-11 (temptation in the wilderness) Prayer is also part of our armor Ephesians 6:12-17. In this passage, there is no hint of failure. Only standing firm if we wear the armor. When we pray, […]

Retreating

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

I get to go to a Scrapbook retreat this weekend. Lee told me I could go several weeks ago. When he lost his job, I said that I would stay home to save the money. The retreat is actually very inexpensive, but still when you suddenly lose your income saving every penny is a pretty […]

Tellin’ the Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

Last weeks weight loss (FINALLY!) motivated me quite a bit. I also dug out a card that came with my Turbo Jam set. In October, I entered my measurements and weight and then didn’t do Turbo Jam very much. I decided I’d just compare myself to October’s measurements since I didn’t take measurements when I […]

When He says “no”

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

I read this quote by Corrie Ten Boom in my devotions this morning. “I see certain things that I asked for which were not granted. In recalling each individual circumstance, I am grateful now that God did not give me what I asked for. This shows that we should always pray with an attitude of […]
