MONDAY MORSELS/TUESDAY TIDBITS


Monday Morsels has become Tuesday Tidbits for this week!

We had a quiet Memorial Day. Both our sons' families have been on family trips--one to the beach, one to the mountains. We have heard from both families and they were having a great time. K's family was on their way home yesterday, G's family will return later this week. Both of our sons and their wives have jobs that have high stress times during the year--tax time, end of school, b ball season, VBS coming up, etc. They were all ready for a few days of vacation! I'm so happy for them that they were able to get away for a few days.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Mr. L. Report for all those who keep up with him.
He is still battling congestion, although he has had some relief this past week. Fatigue is still a concern. However, he is beginning to do some exercising again. We have set a few physical goals for the near future. We will keep you posted as we reach those goals.

Mr. L is back to writing on a regular basis. He has finished some of his
Christ to the World projects and is doing some personal writing. As I have told you, he is working on "The Book." He says he is not sure anyone wants to read it--We assure him his family wants to read it and that's all that counts!

The family keeps a close watch on how far Poppy is into his life story. So far he has told about his childhood in the coal mine area of Virginia and his move to Florida where he attended college. Now, finally, he is approaching the time that we--the boys and I--start showing up. We had about decided we were not going to be included! Of course, I am planning to do some careful editing on these chapters! :) BTW--if any of you friends out there want me to "edit" chapters in which you might appear we can negotiate! lol

Seriously, our family looks forward to having this treasure. Mr. L can tell a good story--and he has lots of them to tell! God has blessed Mr. L in many ways and it is obvious that, throughout his life, God has had a unique plan to use his talents for His Kingdom.

Susan, Penless Writer, had a post this weekend about "what word identifies you in the Body of Christ?" (Go here to read the whole post--very interesting analogy). Mr. L and I discussed what words we think best describe us. I believe this is one of those concepts that can vary according to the season you are experiencing in your life at any given time. For example, at different times in my life, I could have chosen teacher, follower, believer, or learner. Now, for this season of our lives, Mr. L chose "obedient" and I chose "servant." As we seek to fulfill these specific roles we can claim these promises from God's Word:

Obedience
Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me,
he will obey my teaching.
My Father will love him,
and we will come to him
and make our home with him.
--John 14:23 (NIV)

Servant
Whoever serves me must follow me;
and where I am, my servant also will be.
My Father will honor the one who serves me.

--John 12:26 (NIV)

What is the word that best describes you in the Body of Christ? What scripture can you claim for support in the role you seek to fulfill for this time in your life

Great post. Mine is the same one I used in my post. The Word---
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1

I choose The Word because I truly love the Word better than anything......the Living Word, Jesus, and the Written Word. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."
II Timothy 3: 16 & 17

Myrna, you are hilarious. Walking and blogging at the same time! IF they invent that we'd all be skinny minnys wouldn't we???

I do something even better when I walk though. I pray. Out loud. I am absoutely certain that people think I am crazy. But I don't care. My prayers are so much more vivid and clear and creative when I walk. It's that blood flow to the heart and brain I'm sure.

Thanks for the encouragement that the weight loss will come with a life style change. I know you are right. I have already seen that I eat so much less when I am not sitting at a desk and I am walking every morning and looking forward to it, instead of being so exhausted that I dread it. It will happen. Thanks!
