Say What's On Your Mind and Ride A Fast Horse!

Say What's On Your Mind and Ride A Fast Horse!

I have this saying on a plaque in my kitchen.  It's more of a warning!  LOL  
(Except some in my family don't get it....what can I say?)

This is a "this and that" post.

January is always filled with anticipation, as we watch and wait to see God's glorious plan unfold in our lives during the coming months! A new page, fresh, clean.  What will it look like by the end of December 2012?

So, do you have plans for 2012?

Do you have a bucket list of things to do, accomplish or places to visit?

Or maybe it is things you want to learn.

I am one of those who is constantly making lists in my head.  Currently, I am thinking of some of the books I want to read in 2012.

(This list will grow, as  I love to read!)

His Hallowed Name Revealed Again, Keith Johnson

Kisses From Katie, Katie Davis 

The Bailey Flanigan Series, Karen Kingsbury

House of Secrets, Tracie Peterson

If you would like to know about any of the books listed, click on the authors.  Now, I'm on the lookout for some historical fiction.  Love it!

A couple of days ago I blogged about the 
So, if you read that post you know my biggest undertaking for the coming months is loosing 117 lbs.
(Yesterday didn't go too well.  Today has been better.) 

I feel I need to share a couple of things with you tonight..... today (Friday) was Fearless Friday.

Several of us were praying for you today.....whatever your need, whatever you were going through, we were praying your needs would be met, for your path to be made straight and that the glory of the LORD would be with you!

And this scripture ~

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.  ~  Romans 8:37

In this life, we go through many things.  We experience good things and we experience trials, but we do not go through these trials alone.  HE is always with us....always!


Ann Voskamp has written an awesome post on commitment and marriage, entitled 

Read it.  You'll be blessed!

May you have a very blessed weekend,



  1. I have a saying on this journey with The Sacrificial Diet. "I have more good days than bad days. I used to live with more bad days than good days" on those days when we don' do as well, we just pick ourselves right back up girl...((hugs)) Heading over to ann's to read...Thanks for joining in on Fearless Friday and also for the entire week as we continue to lift up those that are in need of prayer (and for one another too...))

  2. I'm a fan of Ann's writing, but you know that. :) I need to get this body in motion and back on track, but I'm not sure the Sacrificial Diet is the one for me...I have certain times of the day when my body says "feed me" and they don't fall within those windows of time you talked about. I haven't started a book list yet, though I've read 3 or 4 already. I should keep a list and write reviews on my reading blog, I guess. And thank you for any prayers that might have come my way. :)

    Have a wonderfully blessed weekend, Cheryl.

  3. I love that saying and, yes, I get it! I've had to ride that fast horse more than once in my life. LOL I had kind of a bad day yesterday on the SD myself, but today is a new day and we will do it! I loved Ann's post about the marriage, too, and am following that sage advice.

    God bless you - Julie

  4. Best of luck to you! Praying for many GOOD days ahead.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! It is always a joy to hear from you.
