Sorry I’ve been MIA! I’ve been fighting a cold for, like, 3 months now and get got worse on New Year’s Day. Ugh!
One of the worst parts of this cold is that it has settled in my ears. Major congestion, blah. 😛 So everything is muffled and I should like I’m yelling when I talk. So, as He does sometimes, God showed me something in this… with my ears clogged, I can’t hear much around me, all I really hear well is myself… isn’t that how we are with the world sometimes? We get so wrapped up in ourselves, we can’t even hear when other people are talking? Or we think we’re talking loud enough for the world to hear (the Gospel in particular) but we’re only whispering? We need to get over ourselves. Listen to others and speak boldly the Gospel of Christ.
OK, spiritual lesson learned and shared… can I please have my hearing back?!?!?!
Anyway, I made a resolution or 2 for 2013, how about you? I’m trying harder to stick to my calorie budget… which I have 13/15 days so far. I lost almost 7 pounds the 1st week (mostly water weight, but I’ll take it), but didn’t lose any the 2nd week. But still, an average of 3.5 lbs per week is a pretty good start! Along with that I’m trying to cut back on eating out, for health and financial reasons. The 2 days I ate out are the 2 days I went over in calories, go figure.
I received a Keurig machine for Christmas (Mr Coffee brand, but it uses k-cups)! Love it! Anyone out there have a similar machine and have any suggestions on brands/flavors of k-cups??
Also got some stuff for my camera 🙂 A few other cool things too. Time spent with family was the best, of course.
Well, I pray we all have a blessed and wonderful 2013! Talk to you again soon!
