Good morning to you!

Well...Today is HURRICANE DAY for us here in eastern South Carolina...We are under a 'Hurricane Warning' and Hurricane Charley is expected to make landfall around noon today...I'm over at my Mother's as I key this. Been up since around 4:00 a.m., got ready and came over here. I hope this hurricane doesn't be as bad as Hurricane Hugo was in 1989. Anyway, we ask you fellow Christians to please remember us in your prayers today.

Hope each of you has a blessed day...

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

Love, Maria (smile!)

Hi, Maria! That must be pretty scary from what I've seen on the weather channel. I hope it won't be as bad by the time it gets to you. Tell us all about it real soon so we know you're okay. I hope you have a nice weekend anyway.

Good morning to you! Hope you're having a nice day today!

It has been very rainy and stormy here in South Carolina over the past few days...Hurricance Alex passed by, bringing us FLOODING rains, and right now we have Tropical Storm Bonnie (now called Tropical Depression Bonnie) sitting on South Carolina since yesterday and a tornado came close by here where we live yesterday afternoon, I was home but the Lord protected us and the huge oak trees were just bowing over and whirling in the wind and leaves blowing everywhere up in the air and some limbs from the trees were left laying in ours and our neighbor's yards....but it passed quickly and didn't last but a few minutes...anyway, I'm glad it didn't come straight through here...the tv report says there were 23 tornadoes yesterday...from Florida through South Carolina...but there were ALSO reports of tornadoes in North Carolina, too. But anyway, thank the Lord, He kept us safe. So, now we have Hurricane Charley coming up from Florida, predicted to come up through Georgia from Florida and then straight through....yep...South Carolina...us! Supposed to be here by tomorrow morning and we're not even done with Bonnie yet! But...as usual, I'm trusting the Lord for His protection.

Next...I got on the scale this morning and it says 148.0. Hubby and I are still walking when we can...in between the rain and storms...and we actually got rained on when we were out walking a few days ago...I think my Hubby enjoyed it! I remember when I was a little girl I used to LOVE to walk barefooted through the mud puddles after a good rain...did any of you ever do that, too? (hehehe!!!) Anyway...I'm being mostly mindful of calories and try to eat low carbs first if going to eat a high carb (this lowers the high carb glycemic index eating them together this way), BUT I still eat a candy bar just about every day! YUM!!!! I love sweets!...3 Musketeers, Snickers, M&M chocolate covered peanuts....YUM! Sometimes I have 2 candy bars in a day...BUT...I count the calories of the candy in with my alloted calories for the day.

Wow, you guys are getting some seriously cruddy weather. I live near Chicago and we are constantly complaining about our weather up here, but the one thing we don't deal with is hurricanes. Stay safe!

Good morning to you! It's another lovely, sunny, warm day here in South Carolina...looks like we may be in for some more tropical rain this afternoon...There are a few 'rainy-looking' clouds approaching from the direction of the ocean...I like rain as well as sunshine...rain cleans the air and waters everything...and usually after a good rain, the next morning, the skies are so beautiful!

I've gone down another size...I'm wearing size 8 levi jeans now, as well as size 8 in other jeans, too. (Was wearing size 20 and 22 in jeans at highest weight.) Height is 5'8".

I'm still loosely counting calories (try not go over 1700 cals per day) and Hubby and I are still walking in the evenings.

One of my favorite snacks is a whole bag of popcorn, 94% fatfree Healthypop, buttered flavor, less than 250 cals per bag and the bag is big! I still eat sweets just about every day, too. I also eat lots of fruits and veggies and lean meat...and diet wheat bread for sandwiches...I like 20 calorie fatfree Oscar Myer bologna. You CAN eat and be full and not be overweight...just make the right choices and discipline yourself. I try not to eat late at night. Yes, that means going to bed feeling hungry a lot of nights, but you tell yourself you can have whatever it is (within reason) that you're craving in the morning and that usually suffices. Also, drinking a large glass of water when you are having cravings helps delay that feeling...or brushing your teeth when you feel like overindulging.

Well, I hope you have a wonderful afternoon...remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I!

Love, Maria(SMILE!!!!)

Good afternoon to you! It's been beautiful, mostly sunny with gorgeous brilliant blue skies and white cottony-looking puffs of clouds today, warm but not too warm.

Today, my Mother and I went to Cracker Barrel and had lunch together. We each ordered grilled sirloin steak, and Mama ordered mashed potatoes, green beans, and macaroni and cheese with hers...I ordered baby carrots, tossed salad, and hashbrowns with mine (I ate less than half the hashbrowns)..and she ordered sweet tea and I ordered diet coke and we each ordered apple pie (I ate about half of mine...all the apples and half the crust),with a little vanilla ice cream for desert...YUM!!! It was GOOD! That was my first time eating at the Cracker Barrel...pretty good food.

Then after that, we went shopping...at the thrift store! All of the ladie's blouses were on sale for only $1.00 each! We each chose 3 and Mama found a nice pocketbook, like new, for $1.00 also. So, I brought the clothes home and am washing and drying them before we wear them and also am spraying the inside and outside of her pocketbook with lysol spray.

So, hope you have a nice afternoon.

Remember...if you haven't already, Jesus tells us in Mark 1:15, "...The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel."

Love, Maria

Good morning to you! Hope you're having a lovely day in the Lord!

We South Carolinians have been having some tropical rain! We got around 4 inches of rain yesterday, according to the weather channel on tv in the area where we live. Water in the roads, ditches overflowing onto the roads, electricity went off, we had candlelight singing (which was nice) at church last night for those who came.

Well...going to read some entries...looks like we're in for more rain today...SMILE! (We needed rain and thanks to the Lord for sending it!)

Hi Thank you for your wonderful posting today. John 3:16 is my favorite.

My mother-in-law just moved to Murrells Inlet S.C. she loves it there. I am hopefull that I will be able to go visit at Christmas time, it will give me a strong reason to work hard at walking again!

Have a wonderful and blessed Friday!

Good morning to you!

Today is a beautiful day in the Lord, sunny and warm, here in South Carolina. Today is also my birthday. I thank the Lord for another year and for all His many blessings he has blessed me with, the biggest blessing of all being the gift of eternal life through my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It's an honor and a privilege to be a Christian and I am happy to say that I am a Christian!
