Monday and a challenge

Good Monday morning bloggers!

I have decided to do a fitness challenge. Oh why? 
Well I feel the Lord is tugging hard at my heart to get healthy.

I posted a few months back about it and honestly have done nothing other then gather 

I have learned to drink more water. Less soda. 
We are eating more "real" food and less processed, but we are a long way away from a total change.

SO I prayed and prayed and I feel this challenge will be good for me.

I am not going to lie, I am scared. Scared of what?

Honestly..about how much I KNOW I am going to have to work at it and KNOW this is going to hurt and not be fun!

I am not a person who enjoys working out at all!!

The last time I was "thin" I was in high school so I know this will be tough.

BUT I have a savior who is holding my hand, who will give me wisdom, as long as I choose to receive it.


I am taking the peak313. 5 week challenge. 
I DO have a great partner for this. It is my husband John.
Oh Lord help us both. I can be so cranky sometimes. 

I have chosen my 4 workout days. Each session 25min. There is a scripture for each week.
I will come to my blog every week and let you know how I did that week.

I am asking for prayers. Prayers that I hear the Lord through this challenge and listen to his voice.
That when he encourages me I don't get upset and give up!

If you would like to do the challenge you can. Here is the link: Peak313

Sunday Morning....

One of my most favorite songs.

Sometimes I get down because things are not going the way I want them too.

Then the Lord will put a song in my heart like he did this morning.

I am here, I am alive, I have food, shelter, wonderful family, great friends, awesome blogger friends.

But Most important I have Jesus..who will never leave me. Who does miracles in my life everyday!

A Looong Pillow

Howdy fellow bloggers.
I hope you are doing well.

I found out that my thyroid was off a little. Also that my vitamin D was extra extra low. The levels should be above 50 and min is at 9. 

So My doctor increased my thyroids meds a bit and I am now taking Vitamin D 50,000 U once a week with calcium pills.

I was having extreme fatigue so  I am hoping this helps.

Also comes diet changes. We are sloooowly getting off processed foods. It is hard enough for people to do this I think, but I have food allergies and it makes it even harder.

BUT I am determined to do it to make us all in my house feel better.

This is my looooong pillow I was working on.  I really like how it turned out.

It is about 14inches but it looks really long in person.

Its available in my ETSY shop.

I will have my fall giveaway ready to go this weekend. Hope you will come back and see what I am giving away to my followers!

Have a great week.

New stitcheries

Happy weekend everyone. I hope that you are having a blessed one.

I wanted to share my latest stitchery with you. 

It is one of my favorite scriptures. I designed it myself. :)

Growing up, my Grandma who raised me and my brother, had a sign with this on it hanging on her wall. it was the entire verse.

I remember she had it hanging right out in plain site and it was 3D ish and I remember dusting it and rubbing my fingers across it.

It a beautiful story in the book of Joshua.

I am also having a giveaway on my facebook page.

You can click on my facebook link on the right side of my blog. 
Like my page and comment on the picture.

I am finally settling into condo living. Hubby is liking NO yardwork except 2 little bushes he trims. Our condo is a 2 story. First time either of us have lived with stairs LOL Some days its god other days

The kitties have adjusted ok. They sleep on the stairs sometimes LOL. Have to watch when coming down them they do not move.

Hope you have a blessed week.

nine eleven

I remember right where I was. 
I was getting the kids ready for school. Oh they were so little then.
I turned on the TV as I usually did in the mornings so the kids could watch cartoons.

No cartoons, No happy faces, just confusion.

It was early. The towers had just been hit and no one knew yet what was going on.

I pondered in my heart do I send the kids to school today?

The kids wanted to go, so I took them to the bus stop. By the time I got back home...
Our nation had changed.

I called my hubby at work. He said keep the news on. Listen to what they are saying.

I watched in horror. All those people running and scared for their lives. Firefighters, police men, every day citizens pulling together.

That evening when the kids were home with me and hubby. We talked about what happened.

I never thought in my life I would ever see this on American soil.

13 years later, the world has become more and more evil.

I pray that the USA becomes a country that loves and cherishes God again.

I pray my grand children will never experience what Our country did on that day.

It's bone chilling how Satan can manipulate people into doing his evil deeds. 

God Bless the USA.
