    Even Prefection was Criticized and Still, Renewal is Promised

    We all come under criticism from time to time. How react is on us. If you are at fault, own it. If you are criticizing to diminish your own faults, recognize it. Criticism is words. Choose your reaction to them. Jesus was absolutely perfect yet he received criticism. When he was reviled, e did not revile in return, when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. 1 Peter 2:23 Hang in there! My second thing is renewal. Each day you fail to follow God to the letter. Each day you cheat on your diet, drive too fast and criticize others, but with…

    Keep Those Points Cards Handy

    Is your wallet bulging at the seams with rewards cards from fast food places, clothing stores, pharmacies etc?  Mine was.  I couldn’t snap it shut.  So I moved the cards out to a pocket of my purse and when I got to said retail establishment to pay for my purchase my purse would vomit up a hundred different savings cards.  I shuffled from one foot to the other hunting up the specific savings card while the clerk smiled tightly and the people tapped their feet impatiently behind me before I held up the card exclaiming “Bingo!!!!,” or dropped my head and walked out without my precious points. Out of necessity…

    Little Tablet That Could

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and have been very happy with it.  I have done all my planning, reading etc on it.  I was having a hard time justifying getting a eReader or a tablet because I thought it might be redundant to carry around two devices that did nearly the same thing. That has not been the case.  For mother’s day I hinted more like dropped giant bombs around, that eluded to the fact that I really did want a mother’s day gift this year and I wanted the mother’s day gift to be a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.  When mother’s day arrived my husband me handed me…

    Getting Fit with the Fitbit Activity Tracker

    How many times have you started a diet?  I’d say I have tried close to a million times, usually about 5 minutes after I ate something monumentally too full of calories.  The modify or limit the food approach has never been a scorching success for me.  So I got to thinking about the best cheap elliptical trainer and fitness aspect more and as I look back on things that really has been sort of successful. Along with the fitbit I found some great weight loss tips on skycube.org. A few years ago I took a job outside of the house which required me to pound the pavement doing public relations.  Without consciously…

    Book Review Sophie Littlefield’s “Bad Day for a Scandal”

    I took a walk through the library the other day and the cover of Sophie Littlefield’s book, “Bad Day for a Scandal,” caught my eye.  I didn’t even open the dust jacket to peruse the the preface, just snatched the book off the shelf, checked it out and tossed it  in my purse/suitcase/survival kit. I have to say this book is a delight especially for those who have a little redneck in us.  So many times authors write about small town or rural living and completely blow it.  Sophie hits it right on the head.  Every small town I have ever lived in and I mean small, population 784 people…
