The Weekend

Another Monday morning. I made it through the weekend. Yesterday I taught an adult Bible class, then played the piano for morning worship. We took my husband's mother with us to a new place to eat. Keeping to my portion control, I split a sandwich with her, and even brought leftovers home.

Then we headed to the funeral home. The mother of one of my son's best friends died unexpectedly. Of course, we were shocked, but even more so because this woman was a doctor - and close to my age. She left three sons, all standing in a row beside her casket.

My son has been extra sweet to me all week, and more than ever when he heard of Joyce's death. He keeps telling me to take care of myself, to get this pain in my side checked out, and to watch my diet. He's goading me along on my Road to Health. I'm thankful for him - a gift from God indeed.

After the viewing, we went home for a few minutes, and then headed back to church for a 5 PM meeting followed by church services. We had some wonderful missionaries to Africa as our guests.

So, we ate dinner last night at 10 PM. I might have had an excuse to eat whatever, too tired to even consider whether it was good for me or not, but I didn't. I ate with awareness.

I think I might be 'getting it.'

How was your weekend?


  1. First- I don't know how you do it all and still have time to write a blog! I too am beginning more aware of my health, what I eat. Maybe because I feel like I'm falling apart at 41. I've known many mothers who have passed away, leaving their young families- it's very eye-opening to say the least. I have to wonder if it's not a direct spiritual attack on women and families- we're the glue that holds it all together. Good news- I went to Curves this morning and lost 2 pounds. :)

  2. That's great, Jennifer! There's a Curves about 5 minutes from me and eventually I may join. Sounds like they have a great program.

    Yes, it's a shock to the system to see someone your age who has died so unexpectedly. My kids have mentioned that a lot of their friend's parents have already died. I found out, too, that one of my classmates from high school died about a month ago after having a heart attack - a woman. That got my attention, too!

    Thanks for stopping by. Keep it up!
