Ruthey's Habitat

I am married with 1 daughter, 2 granddaughters and 2 great granddaughters and 1 cat. My husband and I are Christians. We live in the Pacific Northwest (USA).

I haven't been able to do much in the line of exercise for several years because of a lower lumbar injury in 1989. I manage to block the pain, most of the time, but any strenuous activity can put me flat on my back for days. Any suggestions on low impact exercise would be appreciated.

Even with daily pain, I had managed to keep my weight within the range for my height. Until I quit smoking over 2 1/2 years ago. I found out that food tastes good and gained about 40 pounds, all in the middle. I want to loose that and get back to the 140 - 150 range. I have lost 10 pounds in the past 3 months.

Brought to you by the CML team
These lyrics sung by Hope's Call are powerful. I hope they encourage you this week.

You Are Loved

Have you ever felt the Father's love
As He holds you in His arms
When you start to say I'm sorry
He says you've done nothing wrong
Have you failed to meet the standards
That you thought you should attain
Only to hear Him call your name, saying

Chorus:
You are loved beyond your failures
You are loved beyond your past
The hope that you've imagined
Is now reality at last
You are loved with no conditions
You are loved with no remorse
The scars of your forgiveness
Are engraved upon the Lord
You are loved

Verse 2:
Have you seen your life be torn apart
By things you could not help
Until you finally reached the point
Where you could only blame yourself
Have you laid your head to sleep
And think you'll always be alone
Then awaken to His voice calling you home, He says
(repeat chorus)

Remember to stop by the team page and say hello.

These lyrics sung by Crossway have ministered to me time and time again. I hope you can draw strength and inspiration from them also :

When I Hear the Thunder

Sometimes at night I cry myself to sleep
After everybody else has gone to bed
Knowing once again I've gotten in too deep
And the waters will soon be above my head
And I beg of you to change the world around me
So tomorrow won't be looking quite so dim
And I awake to the waters deep enough to drown me
But through it all you taught me how to swim
Chorus:
And when I hear the thunder and I think I'm going under
I remember you're the lifter of my head
You've had a thousand chances to change my circumstances
But thank you, Lord, for changing me instead.

There are times I can't help feeling lost
Like a ship drifting on the open sea
And the wind and waves leave me pitched and tossed
And a storm begins to build inside of me
And I beg of you to change the world around me
As fear and faith are fighting for control
Amid the raging waters swirling all around me
You've become the anchor for my soul
Chorus:
And when I hear the thunder and I think I'm going under
I remember you're the lifter of my head
You've had a thousand chances to change my circumstances
But thank you, Lord, for changing me instead.

Tribute to our Veterans

It is the VETERAN , not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN , not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN , not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN , not the politician,
Who has given us! the right to vote

How blessed we are because of our VETERANS!
