January 5, 2014 to January 26, 2014, I am on a Daniel Fast with Generation Church. My daughter Francine attends this church and she is on the fast along with me. The Daniel Fast is similuar to a Vegan Diet. You can eat fruit, vegetables, Ezeikiel Bread, brown rice, beans, veggie burgers, drink protein shakes and juice. You can not eat no sugar, flour, meat, or nothing that comes from animal or birds. You can not eat any animal products. I have lost 6 pounds so far on this Daniel Fast and I feel amazing.

Good Morning Arlene

Dropping by to wish you a Blessed Easter Weekend and share a special Easter Poem....

Easter Means Eternal Life

A perfect God demands a perfect justice;
He cannot let us get away with sin.
We used Godís gift of our free will to trespass,
So heavenís gates were closed; we couldnít get in.

Our sin required our blood, a sacrifice,
To atone for all the wrongs that we had done.
"But I love them!" cried our Father, filled with sorrow;
"Iíll send my only Son to be the one."

Good Friday marks the slaying of our Jesus,
The unblemished lamb, the perfect sacrifice.
He took our guilt and blame upon Himself,
So we could be with Him in paradise.

On Easter morning, he came back from death;
He vanished from the tomb, the empty grave.
His resurrection means eternal life
For us, the ones he came to earth to save.

This summarizes all the Easter story
And because of it, weíll be with Him in glory.

Evening emoticon

Dropping by to say hi and wish you a great weekend ahead, also want to say emoticon for your support on my blogs, your friendship is appreciated...Hope you enjoy the following poem.. emoticon

The Gift Of Friendship

Friendship is a priceless gift
That cannot be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold -
For gold is cold and lifeless,
It can neither see nor hear,
And in the time of trouble
It is powerless to cheer
It has no ears to listen,
No heart to understand,
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand -
So when you ask God for a Gift,
Be thankful if He sends
Nor diamonds, pearls or riches,
But the love of real true friends.

Hope you enjoy the Easter Poem! emoticon

This Life on Earth

Easter means that this life on earth
is not all there is.
Jesus went "to prepare a place for us"
in His Fatherís heavenly mansions
for all eternity.
Jesus died for our sins,
paying our penalty,
so that we could be forgiven.
He was resurrected, to prove
that death has no hold
on those who repent
and accept Him as Savior.
This life on earth is a prelude
to eternal joy with our Lord.
Easter is a celebration
of our eternal destiny.
