God Moments....Me moments

At the end of a long day, who sings you lullabies?

It’ getting late and I’m on my way home now, after a full day.

I take a few moments to review the day, the God moments and the me moments. I become saddened that there are more me moments than God moments in my day. Then, to my mind comes two conversations I’ve had today with two individuals who each mention a significant shift in their direction in the past days. Hope comes back to my heart.

My mind remembers how not three days previously I couldn’t get them out of my head. So I did the only think I knew to do, and that was to pray, so I did. I prayed and prayed for them and it felt good to pray with such freedom and intensity. I didn’t know then what I was praying for, but I think I do now.

God moments - 10.
Me moments - 6. (ok, 7)

There is always someone who loves to sing you Lullabies

I was reading this post from a dear friend and it moved me deeply. I know this blogger well and his post always encourage and convict me.



Coffe while I wait

You Are a Plain Ole Cup of Joe

But don't think plain - instead think, uncomplicated
You're a low maintenance kind of girl... who can hang with the guys
Down to earth, easy going, and fun! Yup, that's you: the friend everyone invites.
And your dependable too. Both for a laugh and a sympathetic ear.

I know you haven't heard anything from me in a's because I'm still waiting to know something. I don't like waiting. I'm not good at it and when I'm forced to practice it makes me grumpy.

I'm now waiting on a date to see the Surgeon about the Lap-Band procedure. When my primary physician's office called to make the referral they found out that the surgeon is moving to Ohio this month. So more calls followed and more delays. I'm still waiting on a date for the next appointment.

Meanwhile, I have talked with the surgeon's office about how long a wait there will be? They are booked up till February 12th and that was a few days ago. Apparently when I do get the appointment there is also several classes to attend that day as well as lab work. If all that goes well surgery would be about a month later.

Did you know sitting next to the phone doesn't make it ring any faster?

What Daisy Means

You are balanced, orderly, and organized. You like your ducks in a row.
You are powerful and competent, especially in the workplace.
People can see you as stubborn and headstrong. You definitely have a dominant personality.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.
You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.
You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

Saturday Photo Hunt....delicious

Whenever my kids are home, all of them always want to go to Chick-fil-a. The food tastes so much better especially if it's been a long time since you had any and will be a long time till you can get any again.



Weigh In at the the doctor

Just back from my three month check with the doctor. I didn't lose any weight according to his records (but he didn't know about the 5 pounds I gained over Christmas).

He will be sending a referral to Dr. Northrup (the Lap band specialist) and hopefully I can get into see him soon. I have no idea how far in advanced he is booked. I'm sure there will be more hoops to go through but at least talking to the surgeon is now more of a reality.

Over all it has been a good week and focusing on good choices seems to have been a good choice for me. Life is continuing on at a hectic pace but I am pleased at the progress I've made in many of areas of my life (at least for this week!)

I was impressed by some of Gattina's quotes on New Years Resolutions.

  • Many people look forward to the New Year for a new start on old habits.
  • People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas.
  • “Now there are more overweight people in America than average-weight people. So overweight people are now average. Which means you've met your New Year's resolution.”
  • New Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.
  • May all your troubles last as long as your New Year's resolutions.

2 Down only 363 to go!

Well, day 2 of the new year went quite well. My "make good choices "theme went well and I feel that I really did make some really good choices both in what I choice to eat as well as how I spent my time.

This morning I emailed all my Christmas thank you notes, emailed my friends and family and had a long lengthy time for Bible study and reflection. I was amazed how much better my day went and how much work actually got accomplished.

I couldn't find my new calendar at work which was some what frustrating. I was hoping to schedule some dates for our mission's Prayer Days and book some youth groups for working on Saturdays. I can't find it looks like this wasn't the day I needed to pursue this task.

I'm not writing down everything I ate....but I have been very aware of absolutely everything that has gone into my mouth. I'm trying not to be too pleased with myself as I know I always start off's just that darn "middle part" that seems to get me.

Quote of the Day:

"Enthusiasm is the greatest asset in the
world. It beats money and
power and
influence. It is no more or less
than faith in action."

New Year, New Start!

Welcome 2008! A New Year , a fresh start.

I've decided not to make resolutions as I rarely keep them and they seem to be the same every year (so obviously I'm not making any progress with them.)

I've decided what I want to concentrate on is "Making Good Choices" this year.

This is pretty broad in that it covers my choices for eating, spending my time, what I watch, read, and how I will react.

Today started off a little rocky but ended well. I made good choices in what I ate and the portions but I was impatient and unkind to my Mr. Wonderful. The day got better after I gave it over to the Lord and apologized.

I was amazed at everything that did get done today.....even repairing the motor on the wood fire box outside as the temperatures are supposed to drop tonight. Thanks Lord I needed that nudge! Help me to pray about the small things in my life before they become the big things.

Thought for the day:

"The indispensable first step to getting the
things you want out of life is this:
decide what you want."
- Ben Stein
