You Feed Them

You feed them was Jesus’s reply to His disciples when they tried to tell Him how to care for His people. I laugh everytime I read it! I’m not sure if Jesus meant it the way I take it when I read Luke 9:12-14, but I think Jesus was trying to tell them not to question Him about how He takes care of His children. Read these scriptures and tell me if you get a different “feel” for them then I did. https://www.bible.com/search/bible?query=Luke%209:12 It seems to me that Jesus was saying “If you don’t agree with how I care for...

Satan’s “What if” Game

I bet you are wondering what is Satan’s ‘What if’ game… It’s where Satan will ask “what if” but he doesn’t make it sound like a question, He makes it sound like a fact! I think “Is my husband listening to me?” Satan says “No, cause he doesn’t value you!” Me: What if that’s true and my husband really doesn’t value me? What if he thinks I’m weak and he can just walk all over me? What if he thinks he’d be happier if he wasn’t stuck with me? What if he’s cheating? There’s a little “snowballing” going on in...

God Owes Me!

Once I became a Christian, I’m not going to lie, a part of me believed that “God owes me something!” I mean, I had just become royalty since God became my Father, and He is the King of kings…. so I thought it perfectly rational and logical to think “God owes me!” This is what I’ve learned since then… The only thing God owes me is death for my sins and…. to sweeten the pot…..eternity in Hell. Not quite the inheritance I was thinking of! I also learned that it’s ok to expect God’s blessings, To have the attitude that...

Day 101: Quit Day!

December 16, 2021: Today is quit day for my smoking! Before I board the airplane home from Vegas, I will be a non-smoker! No more cigars, or cigarettes. No use of vapes, Nicotine patches, gums, losenges, nasal sprays, or inhalers…no use of nicotine replacement therapies. I’m quitting smoking and I’m doing it cold turkey! Well… Cold turkey with God’s help that is! I was curious as to how much weight gain is typical once someone quits smoking, so I researched that question and found an article: https://bostondirecthealth.com/primary-care-blog/why-do-people-gain-weight-after-they-quit-smoking Today’s weigh-in picture: I feel like smoking is one of the few things...

Forgiving God?

Forgiving God…is that even something I can say, let alone offer to God? Oftentimes, when people forgive, they forgive mistakes, wrongs done to them, betrayals, broken promises… So who am I to think that I need to forgive God? Especially when… I’m reminded of Job chapter 38, where God says in essence, “Who are you to question me?” https://www.bible.com/search/bible?q=Job%2038:1 (all of this chapter and 39, 40 and 41) If I shouldn’t even question God, me wondering if I could forgive Him seems… blasphemous! But… I know that I can talk to my Father about all things… So, I did… I...

Day 93: Where Does The Fat Go?

December 8, 2021: Where does the fat go? I’ve lost thirty-eight and a half pounds… how did I get rid of it? I thought, I peed and pooed it out… The only reason I started to question how my fat left my body… was that I kept noticing my urine was dark yellow and I believed that I was hydrating well, so I started with a hypothesis… Does fat leaving your body turn your urine dark yellow? And discovered… It does not! What??? There goes my hypothesis! Then how does fat exit bodies? I found an article that explains the...

Day 92: Great Workout Playlist

December 7, 2021: Having a great workout playlist is extremely important for me! My workouts are more productive, and fun when I’m worshipping God during them! The songs on my playlist touch my heart, they motivate me to move, to find peace, and to push myself harder than I would/do without them! There have been few times when I’ve worked out without my playlist! Once when I forgot to charge my headphones and A couple of times when just getting myself to the gym seemed to take all the energy I had (this is when I’ll watch a Joel Osteen...

Day 91: Getting My Steps In

December 6, 2021: Getting your steps in can be difficult! Work days plus no gym days =’s low step days for me. As you guys know based on the overview of my day pictures I post every day. Take December 3’s overview picture for instance: I realized that unless I it was gym day I wasn’t getting my steps, and that equates to four days a week! I have a Versa Fitbit and it alarms every hour to remind me how many steps in I have to meet my goal for the hour. I don’t remember setting an hourly goal,...

Day 90: Let’s Talk Poo

December 5, 2021: Let’s talk poo, yes, you read me correctly. It’s a subject that should come up given how Optavia does not allow for fruits, high fatty foods, or yogurt (which has probiotics that aid in digestive issues AKA pooing.) For the past three days, I have been stalled, on the scale and in the area of pooing. I have not gone three days without a poo, but I feel “full” (I can’t believe I’m doing a post on poo lol) This is such a weird post! lol I also noticed, I haven’t been getting my veggies in, my...

Day 89: Parade Of Lights

December 4, 2021: I was asked to help with handing out candy for the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) at the parade of lights. I couldn’t say “Yes” fast enough! I’d do anything to help out our country’s veterans! And make kids happy too? Sign me up! I have a loud personality that can’t be quieted lol So here’s how I showed up to the Parade of lights: I handed out handfuls after handfuls of candy, not just to the young, but the old alike! I had so much fun! Here’s a picture of me all lit up: I had...
