A Certain Star is Twinkling

For God so loved the world and sent us a savior. Don't you love knowing that nothing can keep you from the arms of a loving God? He never said that this world would be easy, and he never intended this to be our final destination. What he did for each and every one of us was to claim us as his children. And then to promise us that he would be there when we hurt.

He will never judge us on weather or not we go to church, although in this life when bad things happen, (and they will) it's nice to have a church family to help us and to count on. But, a relationship with Christ is personal, and nobody can judge what that relationship is. God's spirit is all around us...Grab it!

Sometimes I am afraid but then I realize that if God never puts obstacles in my way I would never have anything to overcome, therefore I would never grow in strength. God overcame the world. We can't do that but we can overcome the fear in life because of what he told us "Fear not, for I am with you." He didn't say take flight, instead we are to face our fear (our situation) and meet it straight on, even when we don't want to.

So trust in the Lord, he never makes mistakes.
Life is hard but choose to see the beauty in life, and help those who are suffering. So many have helped me and I am thankful.


Keep Smiling

Cirque du Soleil, Jukari-Fit to Flex-Nut's, walking 10,000 steps a day and weight

I don't know about you but I exercise for my health and to cope with stress. I watch what and how much I eat to keep my weight down. But doing the same workout every day can be boring so I like researching new ways to keep fit. While searching around I found this cool new exercise and wanted to share it with you. You can check it out on it's called "Cirque du Soleil's Jukari-Fit to Flex class. They use resistance bands to tone to Cirque du Soleil choreography, which combines dancing, stretching, and strengthening. I haven't tried it yet but I'm going to check it out.
Now, if you like nuts, grab a handful once a day because they lower your LDL (bad) cholesterol. (from Archives of Internal Medicine reports). Apparently, the cholesterol from the food you eat is blocked from being absorbed into your body by the Phytosterols in the nuts. (that's so cool)
A study from the University of Florida showed that women who lost 1-1/2 lbs or more a week during the first month of a diet ended up losing more total weight than other women who lost the weight more slowly.

Did you know that we should be walking a minimum of 10,000 steps a day?  YUP, it's true.
Until next time...
