Recipe for a "Delightful" Life


just waiting for you to "wake" up out of your sugar high

Stop chasing the wind and start Listening and Waiting 

upon your Creator who wants you to live in 

Health and Wellness 

He is the Answer  
Be a WiseMan and Seek HIM

Psalm 37

 1 Do not fret because of those who are evil 
   or be envious of those who do wrong; 
2 for like the grass they will soon wither, 
   like green plants they will soon die away.

 3 Trust in the LORD and do good; 
   dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture
4 Take delight in the LORD, 
   and he will give you the desires of your heart.

 5 Commit your way to the LORD; 
   trust in him and he will do this: 
6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, 
   your vindication like the noonday sun.

 7 Be still before the LORD 
   and wait patiently for him; 
do not fret when people succeed in their ways, 
   when they carry out their wicked schemes.

 8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; 
   do not fret—it leads only to evil. 
9 For those who are evil will be destroyed, 
   but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.

 10 A little while, and the wicked will be no more; 
   though you look for them, they will not be found. 
11 But the meek will inherit the land 
   and enjoy peace and prosperity.

Merry Christmas!  Buon Natale!

Santa's Waist or Stop wasting your life on COOKIES

Ok,  Santa's waist line indicates he is at risk for the following health problems.

  • type 2 diabetes (high blood sugar)
  • high blood pressure
  • heart disease and stroke
  • some types of cancer
  • sleep apnea (when breathing stops for short periods during sleep)
  • osteoarthritis (wearing away of the joints)
  • gallbladder disease
  • liver disease
  • irregular menstrual periods  (oops!  Not Santa... but Mrs. Claus)

Stop kidding yourself.   

Give yourself a gift this Christmas  
" the desire to be healthy"

If you really, truly believed that eating that piece of candy (See's Candy box that's being passed around at work) would harm your body, you hopefully wouldn't eat it.
But, oh no... we kid ourselves and say... it's only one piece.   
But, that's not really true.  It's  really "one more piece".

If you were at the proper weight, could do 25 push ups without losing your breath, had your cholesterol level within normal limits.... then you could have "just one".

But... if you are in the ranks of the 66% of adults who are overweight in this country then... 

Start early this year.  Instead of waiting until January 1st, 2011...... Start now by saying "NO" to the one piece of Candy... a piece of pie....  "a" cookie.

Splurge and delight yourself in pleasing your body 
 do something  your body is "dying" to have.... 
a Healthy life! 

Ok, I too have no "will power" 
 but we all do have "GOD's POWER" to say NO.

Therefore, speak a scripture to gain strength....

MY VERSION: "greater is He that is in me, than He that is in that piece of Candy!"

1 John 4:4  

 4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them,
 because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

It really does work.  Dig deep into your soul and ask the "trillion dollar question"

Why am I trying to satisfy myself with the emptiness of food... 
when I have Jesus to satisfy my very being! 

The gift this Christmas is the gift you give yourself
