Love Our Lord – Expecting Miracles and Showing Gratitude

Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Matthew 7:7 It is Christmas day, the birthday of my Savior and this is my gift to Him. To me, this is the most important LOL, but it is also one of the most challenging.  There are so many different religions and even so many variations of similar religions.   The point of this LOL is not to try to change anyone’s beliefs, but rather, to appreciate your faith and…

Loss of Lard – Meal Planning

A failure to plan is a plan to fail. Weight loss has become an obsession – not just in the U.S., but all over the world.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life… LOL?

How many times have you heard someone make that statement, but have you really ever focused on what it means?   Does it really make you want to laugh out loud?   We all have a finite amount of time on this earth and we have already started using it.   Starting today, you only have so much time left.  Are you really using that time the way that you want to?   If not, why not? I have always had a passion for life and I try to fill it with…
