Saturday waiting...

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Waiting, for the stone to roll away. Death has lost the victory and the grave has been denied. Jesus lives forever and ever emoticon emoticon

It is not about the Easter bunny or spending hours in the beauty salon or getting that new dress. It is about Jesus, Son of God dying on the cross for my sins and everyone else's sin and rising up on the third day. Praise God!

I read an interesting article on line from Today Christian Woman titled "Is Jesus hijacking your holiday?" It was so thought provoking-the author hit the nail on the head about how exploited Resurrection Sunday really is. How commercial it has become drag young children to take pictures with Peter Rabbit or parade around in the church lobby showing off new Easter gear or getting hyped up on a sugar rush with marshmallow peeps. Been there, done that. What is it really about? Who is truly the reason for the season?

I remember my Mom getting us baskets full of luscious treats and my sister Missy biting the bunny's ears before we shuttled off to church with our lace anklets and Easter bonnets. I have heard some folks refer tomorrow to "Ham Sunday". I for one, refused to buy an outfit for Jesus-doing Dave Ramsey Financial Peace makes you think. I didn't stand in those long lines at Honeybaked Ham (trying to get away from pork anyways). I just want to reflect on God's grace and goodness, how I can be a better person, how I can get over petty issues and do His will in my life and be a blessing to others.

As I begin to enter in, to start a new life with Lou, to grow in God's grace, I am thankful for Christ on the cross. I am truly thankful that God healed my Mom and she is celebrating another blessed Easter in heaven and I am grateful for my family, my friends, my job, my home. I am better than blessed this Saturday waiting.

It is a Good Friday...

Friday, April 18, 2014

It's not about Easter eggs and jelly beans, new dresses and honey baked ham. It's not about my aches and pains, my sadness and grief about my Mom in heaven. It is only about God-who loved the world so much that He gave His only begotten Son, who died on the cross for our sins, so we may have eternal life. God loves me that much.

Amen to the cross. I am thanking God for His abundant blessings!

    Our culture revolves around Christmas because it translates into a secular, money making opportunity. Easter is the REAL deal!

It is getting real, for real....

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Came home from work tonight and I received my first bridal shower/wedding gift in the mail from my parents already and my wedding isn't until June 28th! emoticon emoticon . Wow I was pleasantly surprised and the thought hit me that it is getting real for real. In two months I will be prancing down the aisle, saying my vows to a wonderful man who accepts me for all that I am and my little dogs too! emoticon emoticon Baka still gives him a hard time, but eventually Lou will win her over!

I am seeking God earnestly this Holy Week, looking forward to celebrating Christ on the cross. I am realizing that I am comfortable in my job and it is time to shake things up and make it happen. Just like I am plateauing with my weight. It is time to shake things up and make the numbers go down the scale. It is getting real, for real. emoticon emoticon

Do something

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Instead of me thinking about it, pining away for it, dreaming about it, I decided to be about it. Do something, get something done. So I empty a box that has been packed for over a year. emoticon Finally, one of my many boxes empty,sorted and thrown away. No, I did not save it, no room for it, I threw it away and got rid of some junk. My sweetie has to put together one more of my cubes and then I will buy two more to organize my stuff.

Thank you Lord, we GOT this! Amen! emoticon emoticon

Stop making excuses...

Friday, April 11, 2014

I had to get my head out of my rear and stop whining about not losing as quickly as I wanted to. Truth be told, I was sabotaging my own efforts again and I realized this and I had get my act together and stop making excuses.

There are many more folks who face harder and more difficult challenges than I do and I need to face facts, stop whining do the work to get the job done.

I worked out this morning with my trainer. He showed me machines that will help strengthen my core and told me to get my heart rate up to 131 when I am doing my power walks. So if that means I have to loop around twice-so be it. I am going for distance, not speed. The only person I am racing is myself. I can prove to me that I am truly a winner! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
