Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

It's time to quit lurking and start doing...

Thanks for stopping by my page. I appreciate your prayers and thoughts. I sure do hope that you find something that will help that knee soon. It's never fun when we have pain, we really want to do something else besides that. Have a wonderful day and wishing you a peaceful decision on that knee as well.

Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's day. We didn't go out anywhere this year. With Johnny being gone all the time, I thought he would enjoy it more if I made him a nice dinner at home. Buddy and Landon were here, so they joined us for dinner too. It was a really nice day. We got tons of snow, last night and today.........I really could have done without all this mess. emoticon Hopefully it will be gone soon.
Have a marvelous Monday!!!!!!

The preacher was really really good. As a matter of fact, I was just sitting here thinking about the sermon when I got your message. DH was very happy to hear him as well and said it was a bit nostalgic, he thought of his grandmother. I know he misses her a lot, she lived with them and helped raise them when they were growing up. My mom wants my notes from the sermon, she hardly ever asks me for my notes. It was very good. He spoke on the 4 Stages of Faith, Creation Faith-believing in God as Creator, Commandment Faith-Standards of right and wrong, the created law, Christmas Faith-believing in the virgin birth, and Cross Faith-What God did for us in giving His son for our salvation. He laid it out in Romans and Corinthians. I'm so glad that we got to go. Our oldest boy is sick and stayed home, I was sorry he didn't get to be there, I think he would have liked it.

How is your storm? Are you getting snow today? We are much colder today. It has been so warm lately that it seems odd for us to be cold today. No sun either, but I am thankful that we are not as desperate as all of you back east. I keep watching the news and thinking of you all as you dig out and have such extreme cold weather. Do you ever go to DC? You are awfully close to all the interesting history of our nation. It would be neat to see all of that some day.

I better move along, the day is getting away from me. Have a great week.
