MORE INFORMATION WILL BE COMING SOON! THIS IS A NEW, STAND-ALONE FICTION NOVEL BY Pamela Bush.
BE LOOKING FOR MORE DETAILS IN THE COMING WEEKS ON HOW TO PRE-ORDER.
Today I’m focusing on eating and drinking because a couple days ago I finally had a break through. Woohoo! To briefly explain – in Jan. we (my hubby and I) started working out 3x a wk at Snap Fitness. To date, I’ve not lost an inch or a pound. UGH!! I kept asking the Lord what I was doing wrong!!! I don’t snack at night after 8 pm, we’re eating our main meal at noon with light snacks whenever I’m hungry.
Then I read a bk called “Out Smarting the Female Fat Cell”. It took the last two chaps to point out my error – I’m still eating too many fats – even though I seldom eat fried foods. Now, I know my plan of action – and believe me it isn’t easy!!! 🙂 But, I’m praising the Lord and ready for the challenge.
By the way, do you know that we women need to workout 2x more than men for the same results?! Oh well, God had to make us special in order to bear children, so I’m really not complaining – just trying how to get control of this wayward body of mine! Plus, this is a lifestyle change for me not a diet. I will never diet again. I truly believe it was on again/off again diets that messed my metabolism up in the first place.
I’m interested in any comments or feedback, or just plain encouraging words. Take care – Pam Bush
What a wonderful morning we had! First we shared a yummy breakfast, then all moved upstairs to hear the message the Lord had laid on my Pastor husband’s heart. What a great reminder of all the Lord Jesus did for us AND that He did it willingly and out of love for us.
All I can really say is – He is risen, allelujah, He is risen, Amen and Amen. 🙂
Have a blessed rest of the day and week.
It was/is for all of us who believe in the redemptive work that Christ Jesus did on the cross.
But, I don’t think it was all that “good” for my Lord and Savior – Jesus Christ.
Personally, I can’t begin to imagine the ugliness of sin – all sin – past, present, and future – that my beloved
Jesus took upon Himself on the cross.
But He willingly did it for me . . . and for you.
Jesus said in John 14:6 – “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me.”
Then later in verse 15 He said, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.”
He then spread out His arms and died a painful death.
So what are we doing for Him? Are we living in such a way that brings honor and glory to His name?
Or, are we like the Apostle Peter? When things got difficult, he openly – even angrily – denied knowing anything about Him.
Something to think about, huh?
Do you think Spring is finally here? I’m praying so, even though, today is definitely on the chilly side here in Wisconsin.
Speaking of Wisconsin, I’m told my being from Michigan is obvious by the way I pronounce Wisconsin. It seems I’ve been saying, Wesconsin; when in
reality I’m supposed to say Wisconsin, like the sound in swiss cheese. They’re right. It’s seems strange for me to say it correctly, but “when in Rome, do as the Romans” right?
So, I’ve been practicing. I actually love the area we live in. It’s like being in the foothills of the Smokeys AND OF COURSE, I can’t leave out the eagles that winter here, just 15 miles away!
We’ve counted up to 37 all in one spot!!! That’s right – no kidding! One day my brother called from Michigan and I complained that I’d ONLY seen 13 that morning. He actually laughed at me – can you imagine, and then said, “Pam, do you have any idea how many people have never seen a bald eagle in the wild and you’re complaining that you ONLY saw 13?” He did help me get it all back into perspective. 🙂
But, sadly, they’ve all flown the coop (sorry I couldn’t help myself). That is, most of them. There are those who live here year around and we have seen three, so far – two adults and one young one.
Did you know the bald eagle doesn’t get the full white head and tail until they are about five years old?
Another thing I’ve discovered since moving here is the world of live cams on wild life. Currently, I’m tracking an albatross chick in Hawaii, a nesting red-tailed hawk in New York, a nesting eagle in Wisconsin near the Mississippi River (who has laid two eggs – so far) and another nesting eagle in Iowa who has three eggs which should start hatching even today. What fun to watch these birds live on the internet.
Well, I must go. It’s time to make the hubby some lunch. I will try to post more often now. Take care my family and friends.
I actually was shocked when I realized I hadn’t blogged since the end of October.
Where does time go?
We’re all moved into Arena, Wisconsin and went through a really nice, but lonely
Thanksgiving and Christmas, as we weren’t able to spend either with any family.
Now, it’s the end of January and the morning temp was -22!!! BRRR!! I haven’t
stuck my nose outside for a couple days. I’m thankful for a warm home and lots
of good coffee. 🙂
Now that I’m up and running, I plan to try doing my updates a couple times a
week once again.
So – stay tuned. Just Me Again – Pam Bush
Hi Friends and Family, it’s been a while since I blogged, but I’ve been busy packing and sorting. Whew – what a job. We’ll be moving in less than a week so my hubby will be discontinuing my internet service until we’re relocated in our new home and state.
Stay tuned and I’ll get back online next week.
Daughter Rhonda and granddaughters, Sarah and Abby, are flying in tomorrow night for a few nights. We’re so excited! We haven’t seen them since last Christmas. 🙁 That’s way too long for me and we only get them until Monday morning – so we need to squeeze lots of living in three short days.
It’s going to be great!
I already mentioned that Tom and I are moving to Wisconsin the first week of November.
Well, you know what? Rhonda and family are moving too – only they’re going to Sicily the first week of December FOR THREE YEARS! That’s right – Edward is a Navy Chaplain (we’re very proud of him and his service for our country) and is being stationed there. Now that’s a long ways away.
But – who knows – if the Lord tarries, maybe we’ll have a chance to go visit them.
It could happen. 🙂
