Growing UP-Baby Steps and Giant Leaps

Our opening question in Life Group (small group with our church) last week:  "What is the most immature thing you can remember doing as a child, in school, as a teenager, as a young adult, etc.?"  Think about that for a moment................................  We've all had our less than stellar moments.  (Hopefully as we age, we… Continue reading Growing UP-Baby Steps and Giant Leaps

Every Good and Perfect Gift

So, I'm sitting in church yesterday listening to a really good sermon on work and our attitude about work.  Pastor Rex reminds us that whatever we do, we should do it as if we are working for the Lord.  And do it for His glory.  Great reminders! Then in his conclusion, he puts up the… Continue reading Every Good and Perfect Gift

Slow and Steady Wins the Race….Or So I’ve Heard:-)

This.  Is.  Hard.  Really, really hard.   I'm not a patient person by nature.  I want it to happen overnight!  Of course, I didn't get to this unhealthy BFP (body fat percentage) and weight overnight.  Right? So, it does make sense that it will take awhile to get back to a healthy range. I've been working… Continue reading Slow and Steady Wins the Race….Or So I’ve Heard:-)

“Skinny” Jeans vs “Fat” Genes

  Question:  Do "skinny" jeans really make you look "skinny" or is it totally dependent on the body put in the jeans?! (I think the latter!) Another question:  Is there really such a thing as a "fat" gene? Last question:  If there is a "fat" gene, and I have it, do I just accept my fate… Continue reading “Skinny” Jeans vs “Fat” Genes

Throw Off the Excess! (Day 54)

Recently, I bought a new dress at Carsons' Going Out of Business sale.  Oh, and a new top.  Both for the price of $56.  The dress is black and sleeveless with big white circles in a pattern on the body of the dress.  The best part of the dress is it's A-line style which makes… Continue reading Throw Off the Excess!

It’s My Pleasure! (Day 35)

For many years, Chick-Fil-A has been my favorite fast-food chain.  In fact, I would be tempted to say, I LOVE Chick-Fil-A.  But that would mean I'm idolizing an inanimate object, obsessing over it or thinking about it 24/7!  And I'm not.  Well, at least most of the time, I'm not.  So, it's not correct to… Continue reading It’s My Pleasure!
