I thank my precious Abba Father (Creator God) for all He has allowed, is allowing, & will allow in my life! May all the glory for any modest successes achieved on this lifestyle changing journey be His & His alone! Amen & Amen!

Life is good - it always has been - however, there is a special new sweetness to it since I determined to stop playing around & get serious about following my program.

Like I said - life is good!

P.S. ~

The 'Twin Visitors" photograph was taken in early July. I looked out the window & had the pleasant experience of being eye-to-eye with one of them. Their Mama was right with them in the trees outside the window. They were so adorably cute!

My dearly treasured "Mr.V" quickly got the camera & took a few photographs. I think it is so cute how one seems to be posing for the picture to be snapped, while his twin is eagerly following their Mama!

    {1} Once all the villagers decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer the people gathered,
    but only one boy came with an umbrella.
    That's FAITH.

    {2} When you throw a baby in the air, she laughs because she knows you will catch her.
    That's TRUST.

    {3} Every night we go to bed, without any assurance of being alive the next morning
    but still we set the alarms to wake us up.
    That's HOPE.

    {4} We plan big things for tomorrow in spite of zero knowledge of the future.
    That's CONFIDENCE.

    {5} We see the world suffering, but still we get married and have children.
    That's LOVE.

    {6} On an old man's shirt was written a sentence 'I am not 90 years old....
    I am sweet 16 with 74 years of experience.
    That's ATTITUDE.

    Have a good week and live your life like the six tiny stories!

    May you always have love to share, health to spare & friends who care...

    The offer of basil seeds on Triscuit boxes was over a long time ago (2010). Often I will buy seeds and miss the best time to plant them. I keep them in their packets in a 5-quart plastic container. I had bulbs in a plastic flower pot and they disappeared and I had the basil on a Lazy Susan on the kitchen table to plant. My son threw away a box of my receipts and his idea of cleaning to help us is to throw in the trash as much as he can get away with. I cull things to give away and throw away notes that I write as reminders, but I don't throw away anything that is not mine. Sometimes, I will give hubby a pile of his stuff to go through.

    We recycle paper, glass and metal cans. We sell our aluminum cans and the city has a yard waste pickup where you can get rid of weeds, bundled tree branches, leaves and grass clippings.

    I heard on the local weather the other evening, that we had only four days out of the whole month with no rain. When the sun is shining, we are tackling our outside chores. The flowerbeds are weeded and we want to vacuum the decks before putting our patio furniture on the pool deck.

    Our son put Behr Deckover on the side deck and the pool deck, railings and steps. It didn't hold up and is peeling. I will try to vacuum up what I can. I think it has only been on for two years.

    We have never grown any vegetables here. Our rottweiler ran along our fence with a dog on the other side of the fence. All of our surrounding neighbors have dogs and she would try to entice the dog on the other side to run along the fence. She ran over and through anything that was in her way, except for the wood pile.

    Now I can plant and not have to worry about broken plants. We do have rabbits and groundhogs here and I am sure they will help themselves to vegetables. I won't know how it will go until I plant something. My brother-in-law gave onion sets and potatoes to me to plant and I need to do that before we go on any trips.

    I didn't get any more seeds put onto my homemade seed tapes today. It is tedious work, but I won't have the seeds falling into the soil together and hope to have some pansies. It may be too late for a bloom until next year. I never pay over $2 for seeds and have bought packs for much less than that. I have wild purple violets that grow here and sometimes, on a whim, I will transplant them into my flowerbeds.

    When we lived by the lake, there were white, purple and blue ones like the picture at the top of my page, that grew wild in the woods, with Jack in the pulpits and May flowers. This year I have some irises that grew. I planted two hosta plants last year and they both came back. I had two Gerbera daisies, but I haven't seen any leaves where they were.

    Yes, I am excited about the support group here in this state. There are over 10,000 people following this way of eating in the Facebook group, Reversing Diabetes.

    I am just so happy will all the blessings I experience daily.

    The area that your husband is making for your dog sounds interesting. My husband is not handy at all.

    I hope your toe heals up. I kicked a 5-gallon bucket that was in the woods while I was berry picking. I don't know what was in it, but it didn't move and I think I broke the toe next to my big toe. I needed a "toe truck" to help me out of the woods, lol!

    The Unknown Friends
    by Edgar A. Guest

    We cannot count our friends, nor say
    How many praise us day by day.
    Each one of us has friends that he
    Has yet to meet and really know,
    Who guard him, wheresoe'er they be,
    From harm and slander's cruel blow.
    They help to light our path with cheer,
    Although they pass as strangers here.

    These friends, unseen, unheard, unknown,
    Our lasting gratitude should own.
    They serve us in a thousand ways
    Where we perhaps should friendless be;
    They tell our worth and speak our praise
    And for their service ask no fee;
    They choose to be our friends, although
    We have not learned to call them so.

    We cannot guess how large the debt
    We owe to friends we have not met.
    We only know, from day to day,
    That we discover here and there
    How one has tried to smooth our way,
    And ease our heavy load of care,
    Then passed along and left behind
    His friendly gift for us to find.

    emoticon Don’t completely eliminate foods that you actually LOVE.

    Chances are that if you completely cut out foods you absolutely love, you’ll spring back into old eating habits pretty quickly. Unless your doctor informs you of a health condition that requires food elimination, or unless you choose to eliminate a food for personal reasons, let go of the idea of “bad” foods and learn to enjoy them in moderation instead. Pasta? Rice? A piece of chocolate cake? Enjoying these once in a while won’t derail all of your hard work and they aren’t “unhealthy” in proper portions. It is all about portion control...

    Things do get a bit tricky with this “don’t” though. You have to figure out the best method of non-elimination for you. For example, if you keep your favorite food in the house and know you aren’t able to control how much you eat, then don’t keep it in the house. Instead, enjoy it only when you go out.
