And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.... (John 11:26)

...............................................................

Hello all! It is me, Maria.

I clicked on some autumn decor for webpages this morning that was free to download and what the computer downloaded was a 'code' that took over the other journal and refused to stay deleted and caused lots of journal pages not to load...I spent hours deleting the 'code' over and over and trying other things, too, and it would not stay deleted, and I even went into the computer (again...3rd time)...and didn't figure out how to delete the code that way either (so far)...so other journal is offline while I try to figure out how to delete that code and now here is 3rd journal on DD.

All I have to say is 'Be careful of what you click on...it may look innocent and yet be something that is programed to do other things you would not want it to do.' This is the third time this year that this has happened.

I hope you have had/are having a wonderful day in the Lord!

Remember...Jesus loves you and so do I!!!

~Maria~

.............................................................................................................................................

THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION YOU WILL EVER MAKE IN YOUR LIFE!!!

Jesus loves you, and He gave His Life for your salvation....and He is the only way to be saved! If you're not saved, TODAY is the DAY to repent of your sins and ask Jesus to be your Lord and Saviour...He's coming back...and it may be today!!! Get saved while you still have time!!! ARE YOU READY???

PRAYER OF SALVATION

Lord Jesus, I confess that I have sinned against You in the way I have lived my life. I am truly sorry and I want to turn from my selfish ways and follow You. I hand my life over to You, knowing that You have paid the price for my sin by shedding Your Blood and dying on the cross for me. Lord I ask You to forgive me for all my sins and take control of every area of my life. I receive my salvation now according to Your promise: "All who call on the name of the Lord, will be saved." Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Yep!...Done the same thing myself before....Just hard to decide who/what to trust online....

At least your computer isn't "down & overtaken" again.....

Have a good evening!

Ha Ha....I did jog a bit to try to beat the storm, but I wasn't fast enough....I did have a couple houses in mind to dart into if I REALLY had to or got scared enough.... The "zzzzaaaapppp" of the power line in the last 2 miles was when I made the phone call.....Of course, now it has let up, but VERY DARK out there.....


selina on 08/18/2008:
hi Maria! So sorry another bug got you, behind a pretty fall scene, nonetheless! I'm glad you got around your problem by getting another identity! YAyyy!

I hope the bad weather from Fay is not going your direction... it seems it's going to hit the Gulf Coast, though...

Stay tight and don't let those computer bugs bite! hehe - sorry, couldn't help it!


Jen40 on 08/19/2008:
Aww, I'm sorry the computer turned against you!!! How sad, I hope you're able to correct the problem real soon.

Hello to you!

The above photo was actually taken by yours truly at Myrtle Beach a few years ago from the balcony of our oceanfront efficiency apartment...thought I would share it with you...

Please continue to pray for Hubby...he is still real sick...

Hope you've had/are having a wonderful day in the Lord today!

I'm doing better...I went and got Mom and brought her over here to the house and we spent a good visit together...she'd already called a friend of hers that she'd not seen in a couple of months or so and had her to meet us here...(which I didn't know her friend was going to meet us here, which Mom remembered to tell me after we pulled into the driveway and saw her friend's car in the yard, although I knew Mom had said her friend was coming)...we three had a really nice visit...and I took Mom's photo with her friend as they sat in recliner chairs side by side...I had to lift Mom again, over and over, and I pulled something in my back again just like I did last week and pain went from the lower part of my back and down my leg...When later on I'd taken Mom home, my back was still in agony. She's very, very heavy. I try to get her to use her walker to get up from a sitting position but she can't get up that way. And once she sits down, if she's not comfortable, she can't slide over and has to be lifted and moved over. She has to be lifted from a sitting to a standing position. She also has to have other care that includes her being lifted.

Later before I took Mom back home, we stopped and I went in to get her some curlers she wanted for her hair and I got her some hairspray...she was very sad about going back to her room...but I told her I will visit her Sunday afternoon and also I will bring her back over to spend the day again one day next week...but with the pain I am enduring in my back right now from lifting her, I am wondering...HOW???? And having someone here to help me is NOT an option. Those who SHOULD care and help, refuse to help.

Hello to you!

Hubby and I are still working on getting to feeling better and counting down the days til we leave...I told him if I'm not better when it's time to leave, I'm not going, which he doesn't accept that. He is VERY EXCITED about us going (I am, too...but how much fun can 2 people with sore throats, chills, sweats, blowing noses, and coughing have together???)

Do you ever feel like screaming??? My Mother called off and on yesterday into last nite, first it was she was wanting me to go get her and bring her home with me...she was very confused and thought that because they had her sitting in her wheelchair in the dining room while they did a time-consuming big clean on her room that she had no home, cause she couldn't go to her bed...then later she was calling cause she wanted me to come and spend time and talk with her...I'd already explained to her that I'd been sick in the bed with a sore throat for 2 days...she prayed for me over the phone...then she was right back to trying to get me to come, saying she "might not make it" if I didn't come...(SCREAM)...I told her I was not able to come and that I also didn't want her to get the sore throat from me, which was ignored...Finally I told her I would try to come later this week, Thursday or Friday if I'm able...but she didn't accept that...she told me "Wednesday!"...which was tomorrow (which is today)...but I said no...but that if I was able it would be Thursday or Friday...

Then today, I've had more to contend with...I very dizzily and weakly barely made it driving a couple miles to the grocery store to get something for Hubby I thought he needed and was out of (later I found out he wasn't out of it)...only to be questioned by someone (a very long-time-ago acquaintance that I've not talked to in many years) who was shopping in there asking me about someone in my family (personal questions)...which I avoided as best I could answering...(SCREAM)...

And I feel a lot of GRIEF...we've lost 6 people we've known and loved in just the past few months...

This may sound funny to some people, but I've starting drinking coffee again against my dr's recommendations...and I don't mean a little, either...more like almost a potful a day...(It's either that are have 1000 cals nitetime food binges every nite...)...SCREAM!!!

Okay...thanks for listening...

Going to read entries now...

Poor thing..(((((((((HUGS)))))))))) Hang in there. I hope you both are feeling better. I am still keeping you in my prayers. I know what you mean. Keep your chin up things will get better.


mmuraro on 04/09/2008:
Scream, dear, you deserve it. I scream in the car sometimes when i need to vent. that way no one hears you or think you're insane. hehe. i am sorry things are tough right now. It must be hard to deal with the situation with your mom, but you seem to be handling it well. when acquaintances ask me thinks that are none of their business, i usually answer in a way that makes them uncomfortable, so they dont ask others again. hahahaha. as for that coffee, is it the caffeine that your doc doesnt want you to have? you could try that. or maybe make them half and half. or herb tea... yum. xoxoxo


thinnsidenotout on 04/09/2008:
Maria : - )~ Um... Why did doc advise you to off coffee?... You are trading one evil for another if you are replacing the food with coffee, just for the sake of something to keep you occupied.... I drink 2 cups of coffee with breakfast and sometimes a cup early afternoon... But I have pretty much given up the diet soda... I never have increased the amount of coffee, to replace the sodas, just water..... Are you getting plenty water? The water in the coffee doesn't count as far as I am concerned... Your Screaming!!!! I know it!....

I do not envy you in the rough time you have been experiencing of those 6 losses... Man, that is enough to drive the most sane person to being totally "off kilter"....

Your mom knows how to get to you apparently... I am glad that you showed strength and stuck to your guns on TELLING her when you COULD maybe be with her... It wasn't easy I know, but you have to do that... It is o.k. to scream!

Psalms 37:5 "Commit thy way unto the Lord: trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass".... In His time is so hard to wait for sometimes, but my prayers are with you in this "season" you are in... I pray for your physical & mental strength and wisdom....

Rest & Healing = A "Whoppin' Good Time" on that vacation!!!!!

Hope you're having a wonderful day! It is chilly here in S.C...low 60's.

Well, here is another

'Lesson For Today'

Saving Money On Gifts:

With gas prices going up and with it, groceries and other things, consider this: A gift recycling to save money. Maybe you already do it and maybe you don't. I've been cleaning out a closet and in it were lots of gifts that I've not used...so they are just like new and some are still in their original boxes. Some have been stored for a long time. What I've been doing is setting them aside in a 'gift bin' to give for birthday and Christmas presents. A friend told me yesterday that her birthday was this week. No problem...I looked at the gifts in the 'gift bin' and picked out something very nice, unused and still in its original packaging...then I wrapped it in some pretty flowery festive paper (that was also free that had been used to wrap something we received one time)... and I found a 'used' (but you couldn't tell it) festive ribbon to put on top. For her birthday card, I used a new card that was one in a pack of 8 for $1.00 that had a nice picture and also a Bible verse on the front and the inside was blank so I wrote her what I wanted her card to say. The card was probably 13 cents...and that's what I had in her birthday present that I gave her yesterday! I'm getting ready for Christmas presents next. Now I realize we may not want to give EVERYONE recycled gifts, but for lots of folks, I think it's a good money-saving idea.

That's the 'Lesson For Today'.

When you are doing that regifting, I hope you rembember where it came from in the first place - you wouldn't want to give it back to the giver!!!! Happy weekend

Hi Maria :o) Like Mcwoo I'm just calling by to say hello as I have been missing for awhile. Hope you are doing well. I think that recycling of any kind is worthwhile, but I have to agree with FRITTERS about not giving a gift back to the original giver!!! Have a great weekend :)


hollybelle on 11/11/2007:
Personally, I love the re-gifting idea and have done it before. Also - I have found really great cards for $.50 each at Big Lots and The Dollar Store (don't know if ou have those in your locale) that are just great. Also - when I see something on a great sale that almost anyone would like I buy two or three of them to have on hand - also a great gift is a home-made dinner from me to a friend. I cook once (twice as much) and keep one and give the other away. Thanks for your comments on my diary and sharing your cost-saving tips. I am ALWAYS looking for ways to save money - Fritters has a point about remembering where the gift came from - I usually mark something I don't use with the gift card of a sticky note of who gave it to ensure I don't give back too close to the person who gave it, etc.

Hello to you!

Hope you're having a fantastic Saturday!

Went to the grocery store this morning...got some low-calorie foods that are nutritious and filling...bought a 200 calories frozen dinner (turkey, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, green peas...all for only 200 cals)...also bought a box of 6 beef corndogs, frozen kind, 170 cals each...also got some beef bacon at 35 cals a piece...and a big bag of bananas...they are only about 100 cals for a medium banana... This afternoon is a baby shower at church but I've saved some calories for it and a few for tonite...

So far today I've had: Extra large banana, 200, microwaved turkey dinner, 200, watermelon (only 50 cals per cup), 200, one piece of plain toast, 65, and 5 pieces of beef bacon, 175...840 estimated cals thus far...and I figure about 300 at the shower this afternoon and about 2 or 300 cals tonite, which will total around 1400 or 1500 cals for today. It is going on 3 pm here now and the shower starts in a little over an hour.

I found a FANTASTIC place on the web that you may be interested in visiting...not only does it give calorie counts and nutritional information for different foods but it ALSO gives the amount of exercise the particular food equals! Here is the link: http://www.calorieking.com/foods/calories-in-fruits-fresh-banana-edible-portion_f-Y2lkPTM3MDY4JmJpZD0xJmZpZD03MzMyOSZlaWQ9MTcyODk3NDI3JnBvcz0xJnBhcj0ma2V5PWJhbmFuYQ.html

Hello to you beautiful people!

It's a beautiful, sunny, 80's day here and Hubby is off work today! He and I ate out brunch together this morning at Golden Corral buffet...I had a salad, 350, country fried steak (part), 100, eggs and grits, 200, a little hash browns potatoes, 50, and a little fruit, 50. I resisted the sweet deserts! Afternoon snack was an extra-decked-high McD's cone of vanilla soft-serve ice cream...they are usually 150 cals, but mine was stacked so high, I'm going to count it double-cal'd at 300.

So far today, cals est. at 1050 and it's around 2:30pm...I am hoping to maintain for today and tomorrow, since Hubby is home...

Supper will probably be string beans and potatoes, 200...and I may have something else to total from 1200 to 1700 tops. w3h

Update: Supper was string beans and potatoes, 200, 100 cal popcorn, and 1/2 lowfat mayo/relish sandwich, 100. Total estimated for the day: 1450 cals.

m-L 1h

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Hello to you! Can we say RAIN today in S.C.????? Most of the day! But, thank the good Lord for it! Rain clears and cleans the air and waters everything...keeps the dust down, etc.

Today was another very busy day...after prayer this morning, I began with cleaning house and washing Hubby's and my clothes, as well as Mom's....I also made up 3 pans of homemade biscuits and put them into the freezer to be taken out tomorrow about 1 hour before church and bake them in the oven and take them to church for our annual Thanksgiving supper at church! Really looking forward to that! I also decorated 18 little cake squares (each about the size of a large cupcake) to take for one of the deserts at church. Looks like little red flowers with green leaves on white icing on each of the cake squares...that's in the freezer also, to be thawed out tomorrow so will be ready to take tomorrow nite...I also fixed Daughter's lunch when she came by on her lunch break...She showed me her arm, which is slowly healing from her fall and gash in it which resulted in 12 stitches in it...her's is her left arm, same as her Grandma's is left arm, too...both of them fell days apart and injured their left arms!!!!! But Mom broke hers....later after Hubby came home and ate, we went and visited Mom who is still in the hospital...she'd asked me to bring her a fried egg sandwich, which I did, cause she said she didn't eat much at lunch, just the chocolate pudding...She is still in the bed and refusing physical therapy...said she hurts too much to get up and walk other than with the assistance of nurses to the bathroom...After we left from there, we drove about 15 miles to get a vacumn cleaner belt....Then we went back to the mall again and picked up my ring again...it is beautiful! Then Hubby and I walked a little in the mall....on the way back home, we listened to Christmas music already playing on the radio! Of course I LOVE Christmas music...I don't mind listening to it in the summertime, even!

Food today: 2 toast w marg, 1 fried egg, 1 baked fish, 2 cups baked okra, 1 McD's cheeseburger (small one), and 1 McD's walnut and fruit salad.

Well, going to read some entries...thanks for reading...thanks for your encouragements!!!!!!!!!

Remember....Jesus loves you, and gave His life for your salvation....and he is the only way to be saved! Will you ask Him to be your Lord and Saviour today?

Love, Maria (smile!)

Progress as of today: 50 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

Sounds like you had a very busy day as usual!! I don't know how you do it all!

I'm so glad you got your ring and now it's where it should be..on your finger. Do you find yourself admiring it all the time? Sounds beautiful!

Have a wonderful day..
