Monthly measurements
Thursday, July 01, 2010      6 comments

Today is the day to measure myself. My clothes are looser. My face feels smaller. What does the tape measure reveal? A 3 inch loss! 2 inches in my hips and an inch around the waist! Hooray!!!! And then to top it off, I weighed myself (which... Read more
Fresh strawberries
Tuesday, June 29, 2010      5 comments

This is strawberry time ... generally the peak is Independence Day. I passed a local stand on Sunday after church. Remembering how sweet and good this grower's berries were last year, I immediately pulled into the parking lot and hopped out of t... Read more
Bless the LORD!
Monday, June 28, 2010      6 comments

Psalm 103:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me bless His holy Name! I woke up early this morning to hear the birds singing their morning songs. The chorus I learned as a little girl came back to my mind - The birdies in... Read more
I ran last night!

Ok ... so it wasn't a great distance. But I actually ran. And I didn't keel over. I didn't hurt myself. And I'm alive to tell about it! ... Read more
A cheerful glance
Thursday, June 24, 2010      1 comments

I had a great reminder as I read my devotions this morning. Proverbs 15:30 (Complete Jewish Bible) - A cheerful glance brings joy to the heart, and good news invigorates the bones. Did you see that? A cheerful glance brings joy to the ... Read more
Long days
Wednesday, June 23, 2010      1 comments

It's been a couple of long days. The time passed quickly at the airport yesterday. I walked up and down the concourses for about 30 minutes. I had a too big lunch (my poor choice) and a small snack later. Still in ranges for the day except I was... Read more
Waiting ...
Tuesday, June 22, 2010      1 comments

I'm at the airport waiting. My last flight was delayed because of mechanical problems. But because the connection was tight, I missed my connecting flight. The airline did rebook me onto the next flight to my destination for the week ... but tha... Read more
Changes!
Monday, June 21, 2010      3 comments

Changes are happening in me. I feel them and I am frequently reminded that I am changing. Not just on the scale - although I'm seeing the numbers go down very consistently. That is exciting! I have dropped almost 10% of my starting weight (last ... Read more
Father's Day

Happy Father's Day! I called my dad this afternoon. He's going to be 80 in November, but is still very active. He has been a part of the music community in Minneapolis and Saint Paul for many years. He and his wife Karen have a house on a lak... Read more
God is good!
Friday, June 18, 2010      3 comments

"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever." 1 Chronicles 16:34 I've been meditating on the goodness of God. He really IS good! He is everything that is good. There is no evil in him at all. So every thing He does an... Read more
God's plans for me are good!
Wednesday, June 16, 2010      2 comments

When my ex-husband left me, almost 7 years ago, the Lord led me to Jeremiah 29:11 - 'For I know what plans I have in mind for you,' says ADONAI, 'plans for well-being, not for bad things; so that you can have hope and a future.' This verse ... Read more
Is my life on-line?
Tuesday, June 15, 2010      5 comments

What would we do without the Internet? It has quickly become so intertwined with our lives. I read my local newspaper on-line. I do my banking on-line, including paying my bills. I can schedule medical appointments on-line. I can go on-line to ... Read more
Pool party
Monday, June 14, 2010      2 comments

I'm on the road again, but this time I'm near my younger daughter and her family - including the grandkids. So they met me at the hotel for pizza and pool time. The girls are 8 and almost 11. They had fun swimming and splashing. The baby is just... Read more
It can rain now
Sunday, June 13, 2010      3 comments

I didn't get it all done. I didn't even begin to get it all done. The lawn, for example, needs to be mowed. All of this wonderful rain while I've been working has given me a green, lush field of grass and wildflowers. It's been pretty, but... Read more
Cooking for myself
Friday, June 11, 2010      1 comments

I like to come home. It's easier to eat right when I'm cooking for myself. After all, I'm limited to what I have in my pantry and freezer. Yes, I know how to make sugary treats, but I'm not motivated to do that as frequently as I used to. I... Read more
