“Just for Me” February 2013 Challenge. Today I got a pedicure and my feet feel great. I welcomed the warm water, foot massage and the exfoliating scrub to remove the dead skin cell from my feet and toenails. My feet tingled just before the beautiful pink color with hearts was added. I feel wonderful and very special because I took the time to do something for my feet that do so much for me. Romans 10 :15 b “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”
"Just for Me" February 2013 Challenge. Today, I made Spark Recipe cookies which was 1/3 the calories of the store bought cookies that “was calling my name”. I finished the Spark People “Tame My Sweet Tooth Challenge” two weeks ago and my sweet tooth has become more discrimination since that time. I have not cut out eating sweets; however I do not crave sweets nor eat them as I once did. On a recent trip, I stopped by Subway to get a sandwich for lunch and the triple chocolate cookie looked so good that I purchased one cookie. When I bit into the cookie that had “called my name’, it was too sweet to enjoy; so I did not eat the cookie. Later, still wanting something sweet, I looked on Spark Recipe and found the recipe for an 80 calorie chocolate chip cookies submitted by TerriAngel and prepared the recipe. After I ate the cookie, I placed the other cookies in single serving snack bags for other days when a chocolate cookie “called my name”. The cookie was delicious. Luke 12:23 “For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing”ESV.
"Just for Me" February 2013 Challenge. Today I took some of my clothes to my seamstress. She can work wonders with anything and believe me I have tested her over the years. Sewing is her gift to others. You see, I have some clothes that I can still use, if they are taken in to match the new me. Wow, I feel great and the thought of food is no longer my constant compassion. Today, my days are filled with other wonderful things and it is delightful. “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 NIV.
"Just for Me" February 2013 Challenge. Today I stared a new novel. It is interesting how my reading has increase since I got my Kindle last year. I got an email from Amazon today to “clean out my library”. I guess, I have too many books online and it is time to clean out the library. Cleaning out my Kindle library will be difficult because the novels—some read, others unread—are my dear friends. I cannot tell you how many novels I have read over the last year, however starting a new novel brings me so much joy. Isn’t it nice that when we clean out, we can take inventory of just how much we have done, how far we have come” and how much we are blessed? Psalm 145:9 “The LORD is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made.”
