The choices we make.

Wednesday, October 29, 2014



Think about that today. Are your choices taking you closer to your goal? Or are your choices taking you away from your goal?

Be mindful of your choices today.

    Cute, really cute made me smile today. Thank you for the joy you bring to my life, I cherish you.

Taking today off to treat myself with a "no box day" I've weight lifted and moved enough boxes to last me a good long time, I'm tired of unpacking and need a break today, so the trick will be keeping my hands off the boxes and just trying to relax for the day.

I missed you while I was away moving, when I write my blog it's going to be a real dozie.

Take care & be well, still praying for your family, your always in my thoughts & prayers.

Love Prayers & Many Blessings Always Debby

Church retreat.

Monday, October 27, 2014



Soooo, I told you all that hubby & I would be at a church retreat all weekend. As you can see from the photo above, our Pastors totally transformed this dining cabin at a local park into something awesome. We're tired from getting up really early each day, but we had a great time.

There was a concert on Friday night by a local church band. A guest speaker from another church in the area on Saturday night, and a juggler on Sunday morning. There was a special KidzCamp for the kids all weekend.

I was concerned about getting my steps in because I knew there would be a lot of sitting, but there was much singing (& dancing), so I had 18000+ steps on Friday, 13000+ steps on Saturday & 12000+ steps yesterday.

The panel discussion on Worship that I participated in was awesome!! I was so honored to be asked. My discussion topic was how I used Worship to get through breast cancer & breast cancer treatment.

Here's a pic of me with a couple of the ladies (Jean on the left, I'm on the right). The lady in the middle (Madelene) is a walking miracle & is jacked up on pain meds. She has had cancer 3 times (ovarian, uterine & breast) & we had thought the breast cancer was back, but we prayed fervently & when the doctors went in to remove the cancer last week, it could not be found. God is awesome, y'all!!!



It's Monday, so let's get moving today!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    AWESOME blog, so glad you had a good time on your retreat, it's good to read your blogs again, I missed you while I was gone. So much sparking to catch up with, a little at a time. I'm almost done unpacking all the boxes it took me months to pack up.

It's cold here today, this is going to take getting used to for me, I'm moving slowly like a turtle, I feel like I have to put my mittens on so my cold hands can type.

Glad to read your blog today, I missed you while I was gone moving. It was an adventure that was so much more than I planned or expected.

Take care & be well.

Awaiting the glorious triumph.

Friday, October 24, 2014



Losing weight is tough, y'all!! It's so much easier to put the weight on than it is to take it off. Grrrr! But, we'll just keep pushing until we get to that glorious triumph. Right? emoticon

I took a sanity day from work yesterday & had a nice day. I slept until 8:15. Yay!! I usually get up at 3:30, so that was super nice. I did 2 loads of laundry, made hubby a belated birthday dinner (homemade beef veggie soup) & watched a show on the History channel. My step count for yesterday was 22005. emoticon

An update on my Aunt. Some of you have been praying for her for a long time. She had a massive heart attack last September & had been on a decline. We nearly lost her a few months ago & your prayers pulled her back from the brink. She is doing fantastic. She had an LVAD (left ventricle assist device) implanted 8 weeks ago & she was just released from rehab yesterday. She is at home & doing great. Thank you so much for your prayers!

Also, super crazy busy weekend. Hubby & I are attending a church retreat on & off all weekend & I am co-leading a discussion panel on Worship. Sooooo, no blogs until Monday.

Work toward your glorious triumph today!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
