Farewell Tim Russert

I don't know about all of you, but I was shocked to hear of Tim Russert's passing. You see Tim is the same age as my mom. My dad would have been 58 this year, but he passed away almost 11 years ago at the age of 47, of a massive coronary.

I was fortunate, like Tim's son Luke, to have have been able to spend time with my dad before he died. DH and I had just moved to Rochester, New York and they had come out the weekend before he died (they actually left Monday and Dad died Tuesday in his sleep).

I am not sure which would be worse losing your mom or your dad. Since the only experience I have is with my dad, I can honestly say my dad. He was the rock in our family and when he died, well our family hasn't been the same.

So as we approach this Father's Day, grab a hold of your dad and tell him how much you love him, never let a day go by that you don't. And if your father is already gone or you didn't really have a father, let me introduce you to my other father, my heavenly father, He is the father of the fatherless. He did send His only son to die for you. He loves you! John 3:16 If you would like to make Him your father please contact me and I would be so honored to introduce you.

God bless!

Get rid of belly fat!

Her walking program really works! I have lost a total of around 5 inches off my waist doing her walking program! Plus she is truly the only exercise program I have stuck with. Eight weeks and counting!! Praise God!!

Forget shooting the moon, stop the mouth!

Do you ever wake up and just stick your foot straight away into the ole mouth? Me, all the time.
I try so hard to just let things go, and bam I just have the hardest time.

My husband calls me his little firecracker, thank God I have never embarrassed him! There are times I have to bit my tongue from telling someone "blah blah blah".

So how do you keep from shooting off your mouth when it isn't approporiate?

Another day...

Today is a rainy day. It is cloudy and very dreary. Yet, I am so thankful. I have a wonderful husband, who loves me! Beautiful healthy children. A home, food and my husband has a great job.

Yet there are so many reasons to be ungrateful or depressed. God has given us all choices in our lives. To choose life or death, but it is our choice. He will be grieved if we decide to walk away from him, but He will let us.

Don't ask why I am thinking about all of this today, I just am. Grateful that I know the Lord and that my children and husband are Christ followers! Yet grieved for the family members who are not.

I pray God's blessings on you all today.

God loves you and only wants what is best for you. Trust Him, fall in love with Him and your life will never be the same again!

Weight loss

Well I started to get serious about losing weight on April 15th. I prayed and really felt the Lord calling me to get consistent with exercise before I tackled the diet. Well I am almost 7 weeks into it and I have worked out 5-6 days a week. I can see a difference. I am down a total of 11.5 lbs and I have lost 13 3/4 inches. I am so very proud of myself. I couldn't have done it without God. He has held my hand everyday and guided me through the rough times. So Father thank you for showing me what is right for me.
