I don't know about you, but I don't have a lot of time in my day to prepare my meals. I love to cook on a special occasion or when I have guests, but for daily living, as Sweet Brown said, "Ain't nobody got time for that!"
It's not the beginning of the new year but I've resolved to take off the weight I put on when I first moved to the Sunny South. Now that I'm back on the wagon, over the last month I've lost 12.5 lbs by eating Ketogenically and I thought I'd share the method to my madness.
The most common phrase in our culture when someone dies is to tell the surviving family members “I am sorry for your loss.” Until I had experienced “losing Laura” to cancer I had not given much thought to the phrase. It got me thinking...
It was difficult for Laura to pick out the hymns for her funeral service. Each time we revisited her funeral bulletin she kept changing them. "I like so many it's so hard to choose," she lamented. Then I had a burst of inspiration: "Why choose? You're in the choir... Let's have a Hymn Sing!"
I learned this week how you can "memorialize" the Facebook account of a loved one. Facebook has been a wonderful medium to communicate information about my wife's passing, funeral arrangements, etc. but it is also going to stand as a wonderful testament to the life she has led and lives she has touched.
In today's stimulus-response world we don't spend much time thinking about the consequences of our actions, our decisions, or even our purpose. There is no right way, though I am sure there are plenty of wrong ways, to ask yourself appropriate questions and move forward in one's life.
Since my wife's cancer diagnosis April of last year, we have become intimately familiar with all kinds of medical devices and technologies. A number of these are intravenous in nature. I thought I'd introduce you to a few of these life-saving blessings...
I have seen a number of folks blog about creating a "gratitude list". My wife has one. It's about time I started one. It basically helps you have a list of all the things to be grateful for, and every day you add a couple and you see over time just how much you have to be grateful for.
Supposedly, evolution is the gradual improvement of features in an organism by genetic mutation which eventually results in a new "more improved" species. Problem is, in all of recorded history of genetics we have not observed a successful mutation. In fact, we observe the opposite.
You've heard the lecture: you shower every day, don't you? You eat every day, don't you? You watch The Office every week, don't you? Then why don't you have a dedicated time learning about, spending time with, and getting to really know, your Lord, your God, your Savior?....
Most people think of the Bible as a single book. Actually, it's a library... Poetry, historical narrative, wisdom, and apocalyptic literature tell a single remarkable story over a period of 1,600 years. Here's a quick introduction to the Greatest Story Ever Told.
