Five healthy and low fat things I really like

I try my best to eat healthy although I fail at times.    But I thought today I would share some of my favorite healthy things and if you haven't tried them, give them a try: 
1)  Kashi Island Vanilla Whole Wheat Biscuits Cereal - my favorite!  So far I can only find this at Publix.  I really wish they sold it at Sweetbay which is where I shop most often.

2)  Chobani Greek Yogurt.  Great stuff.  Tasted it in Sam's the first time and fell in love with it.   Savanna and I are crazy about this -- the boys still like the Yoplait "Thick & Creamy" brand even though they are Greek!  (I'm 50% greek, making my boys 25% greek...LOL)

3)  I get a big bag of frozen blueberries from Sam's club.  It's a resealable bag.  In the morning sometimes I make a smoothie with one small container of vanilla lowfat yogurt, 1/2 a banana and throw in a small amount (maybe 1/4 to 1/2 c) blueberries, and about 7 pieces of ice, blend thoroughly and enjoy.  I also keep these blueberries on hand to throw into pancake batter.  I also smash about 1/2 to 1 whole banana and include it in the pancake batter.  Just blend thoroughly and make like any other pancake.  I don't use syrup -- don't need to,  it's amazingly tasty.

 4) I always have a Special K cereal bar in my purse.   I enjoy all the many flavors.

5)  Laughing cow cheese.  I eat the original low fat swiss.  So good on a reduced fat cracker.

p.s.  I will be posting an update on Maddie later today.

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
