"When wealth is lost, nothing is lost.
When health is lost, something is lost.
When character is lost, all is lost."
Just before Thanksgiving, I started a weight loss plan. So far, I have lost about 28 pounds of the goal of 45. Hallelujah! (I do believe you are finding those pounds, Aimee! Only yours is baby making poundage!) I suppose I am telling you this because, in the scheme of the above quote, it is all relative.
Monetary wealth is fleeting. Physical health is not a guarantee. When we compromise our character, we compromise everything. I can lose those pounds and then gain them back. Once I cheapen my character I lose respect from myself and others.
Life can be hard but a noble character can help to ease your way because you will be known as trustworthy.
A matter for prayer: Bells was assessed by an early intervention team because her speech is very delayed. She is behind in many things as much as ten to twelve months. Gross motor skills – fine. Speech, interaction, etc. delayed. The team was quick to point out that this is not indicative of her intelligence. She is so active that she doesn’t take the time to learn things! Please pray for wisdom for my daughter and all of us who interact with Isabella to do the right thing and work hard with her as the team works with her to get her up to age level.
If you could be any current celebrity for one whole week, who would you want to be? I don’t believe I would accept this "gift." I like my anonymity.
On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how much do you enjoy talking on the phone? I would have to day a two. I think of it as a necessary tool but would rather speak in person.
Name a charitable organization to which you have donated (or would like to). G…… Pregnancy Center. Helping women help their babies.
What is a food you like so much you could eat it every single day for a month? Chocolate. Only a little each day. Dark chocolate. You know. The kind that is good for you.
Have you or anyone in your family had the flu this year? Thankfully, no. I heard that this year’s vaccine was only 40% effective. I am so happy we were spared. So far, at least.
Hope that the weekend brings you rest, recreation and whatever else you and yours need. Blessings from the Great Atlantic Northeast, gail
