Too Much On My Mind

I have all these topics on my mind I want to post about but I don't know where to start. I've been thinking a lot about Titus 2 and the verses about the aged women teaching the younger. I really don't know what age Paul had in mind when talking about older women. I'm 54 and I know I can still learn from  women who are much older than myself.








I also was thinking how many of us, if we are truly honest with ourselves object to being told the truth in love if we are making a mistake in how we treat our husband or how to raise our children.. I'm not talking about a woman being a nosy busy body. I'm referring to godly women in our midst whom we trust and respect. I can remember many year ago when I was in my 20s and single an older godly mom told me that my skirt was a little too short. I was horrified! A lot of my Christian  friends wore short skirts and at the time I didn't see anything wrong with it. I thought she was old and didn't know what she was talking about!
Anyway, it's hard sometimes to accept constructive criticism from someone at any age. I've had younger women confront me on various issues and that is really an ouch!




Another topic that has been on my mind is modesty during pregnancy  which is something I never thought about until there was a discussion on a group I'm on about it.. I think I will need to write about it in a separate post because the discussion gave me and others lots to think about.


And yet still I want to talk about taming the tongue and how sometimes we need to be careful how we word things because they can be greatly misunderstood. This is especially true when it comes to emails since the recipient
 can't see our faces when writing.


So you see there are many to topics I want to post on and I hope to find time to write about them.

Oops!Sorry for Delay

Again I apologize for the very long delay in posting an update. I'm down to 149 pounds. So it is coming slowly. I have been using the exercise bike, doing various Sparkpeople videos and walking. Honestly this has been the most active I have been in a long time. And it's great! I still struggle with sweets but it isn't nearly as bad as it used to be.
I don't care if I don't have the body from those phony weight loss ads. I just want to honor the temple that God has given me and to be healthy.
