Thank you so much “susieshy45” for sending me this award. I am deeply honored that you thought of me. I’ve so enjoyed our friendship in Blogsville.
I enjoy reading susieshy45’s blog and recommend it to you as well. She writes from the viewpoint of a strong educated successful woman constantly learning and pursuing self-improvement through her life events. Check it out.
I believe we should all maintain a personal relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ. I talk to Him throughout my day. After all, He’s my best friend.
I’m forever indebted to Him, first for my salvation and for delivering me from 90+ pounds in my 60’s. That’s amazing to me.
I am expecting the 60’s decade of my life to be the best ever. I’m looking forward to an exciting future, even if He decides I get promoted to Heaven.
Speaking of which, all my friends know that I want three things in my casket: a Bible from the Dollar Store (I like to think my children or grandchildren would want one of the Bibles I’ve read from.), my cell phone (A friend asked, “Who are you going to call?” You never know. I confess I’m addicted), and a birthday cake. I’ll have a new birthday in Heaven, so why not celebrate.
I absolutely love real birthday cake with real sugar icing. I laugh at the thought of all my family and friends sitting around eating birthday cake at my funeral saying, “Debbie would really like this.” It’s my party and I’ll plan how I want it. Ha, ha!
I really want to help others find the freedom that God has graciously given to me. I don’t know how to help you understand this is for you too, except to just put it out there. I’ll be glad to come to your church and share my testimony (within a reasonable traffic distance).
My first book, The God Plan, will be released on January 1, 2016 available through Amazon and Kindle. I’m also going to have my first book signing event at The Venue on January 16, 2016 – 11am-2pm. I’ll have some light finger food, at least a sandwich. You know about my food issues. I’ve dreamed of writing a book since the 80’s. Some of you weren’t born then. Back in the 80’s, it came to me to write a book about the women of the Bible. I never did. Then every time I went to the Bible book store there was a book on the shelf about the women of the Bible written by someone else.
Now God has given me another chance. I had to write this book and get it published. I didn’t I want go to the book store and see my book on the shelf written by someone else.
My life scripture- – – I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Psalm 32:8
Y’all have a wonderful Merry Christmas and a victorious Happy New Year!
Lord, thank you for loving me. Right now, I’m not too happy with myself. You have watched me all week. You saw it all, every bite. Yep, I’ve been taking extra bites and ended up in self-condemnation. I know I shouldn’t be so hard on myself, it was only a few extra bites. But . . . I’ve been taking these extra bites at every meal since Monday.
I said that I wouldn’t eat any dessert until Christmas Day. At the buffet, I told Hubby I wanted to feel a sense of victory, so no dessert. The waitress brought me at cup of hot decaf at no charge. Yea. I sat there with my legs crossed feeling all smug in my victory.
I tried re-blogging on my phone. That’s the last time I’ll ever do that. It wouldn’t even let me give credit where credit is due.
Now I had to fix the error balancing the computer on my knee while drying my hair in the bathroom. what a trick. I must be a little crazy too! I know I am. But it makes life a lot more adventurous and fun, interesting to say the least.
Also my apologies to all my blog friends, I am so behind in my blog reading. My love to you all, Deborah
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. I Corinthians 15:57
This is a Victory Chart to keep track of your victories during this Christmas season. We do not have to gain weight this
As you surrender to God’s will in your eating, He will grant you victory.
As you go through this month, it will amaze you at the victories God has given you.
A reader informed me that the link for this Victory Chart on my earlier post did not work. So I decided to re-post. Use this as a tool to help keep up your food plan. Eating in surrender brings victory.
Why? Why would God deliver an old woman in her 60’s of 92 pounds? I have to ask why? Why do you think?
Could it be to show you that He is able to heal someone from obesity that has failed every diet she tried for 41 years?
Could it be to give you hope? Could He possibly do the same for you? Do you think it’s possible for you? How many years have you been trying to lose that extra weight that seems to hold on no matter what diet/ exercise program you try? Continue reading Why? What About You?
I agree with this blog. I need to order this book. It was the silent Christians in Germany that allowed Hilter to take control. People, let’s seek God to lead us how to raise our voices. Be not silent. Flood FB or whatever social media you use with God’s word and your testimony. Be not silent, spread the power of God.
Psalm 30:11-12 Sing, Dance, and Be not silent!
Due to several short trips out of town and a friend at church that needed assistance, I procrastinated responding. While Hubby is watching his football game, I’m having my own award night catching up on thank you’s and my apologies. “Itsgoodtobecrazysometimes”, I ask for your forgiveness.
Thank you for the honor of your recognition. I’m glad you enjoyed my blog. I enjoy reading yours as well, especially about that cute little fella of yours.
“Itsgoodtobecrazzysometimes” is a member of the Mental Health Writer’s Guild in the UK. She writes an blog about her struggles with mental health issues and her life in the UK with her adorable little boy. In spite of her struggles, she regularly encourages others by nominating them for awards to recognize their work. You will enjoy her humor and her occasional posts about the history of UK.
So my 3 questions are:
What is your favourite four legged creature and why? (My favorite four-legged animal is Suzy, the cat I inherited from my mother-in-law. She is the easiest pet ever, but she won’t let me touch her. She defines the term, “Fraidy Cat.”
2. Name 3 things in nature you find most beautiful. (The sunrise on the water, the petals of a rose, and the beach.)
3. What do you think is a good question to get to know someone more? (How can I help you? Everyone needs a little help now and then.)
Today’s a day of victory for you. For every extra bite of food you leave, you receive a victory. Look for it.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 NKJV
My oldest son sent me this video.
Watch “Skit Guys – God’s Chisel Remastered” on YouTube
Also, it was nice that Hubby saw this news clip. He said,”They’re reading your stuff.” LOL! It’s nice being reinforced by national news, but God is the One that led me to eat this way. I do disagree with the video. It seemed to me they stressed giving up certain foods, just another diet. Without dieting in any form I’ve lost 92 pounds eating three meals a day, no snacks, and half portions, even desserts. I ate whatever food I wanted in half portions, even desserts.God is so good. He knew I’d be happier with a little sweet in my life.
