He tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young. ~Isaiah 40:11
"The ordinary acts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest. " ~ Thomas Moore
"Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality." ~ Beatrix Potter
"The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only - and that is to support the ultimate career. " ~ C.S. Lewis "The secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life, and in elevating them to art." ~William Morris
"I have no faith in that woman who talks of grace and glory abroad, and uses no soap and water at home. Let the buttons be on the shirts, let the children's socks be mended, let the roast mutton be done to a turn, let the house be as neat as a new pin, and the home be as happy as home can be."
Ok...here it is. An updated weight loss photo! I was asked to share it...so here you go! :) It was taken in my bathroom mirror since I don't have any full length mirrors in my home and hate when others take photos of me when I have to *pose*. So this is as good as it gets. (It's so embarrassing to post pictures of myself...so please be kind!)
I have been steady at this weight now for probably 6 months. I still exercise daily and am mindful of what I am eating. I still have 30 pounds that I would like to lose...but it'll happen when it happens. I am going to keep up this healthy lifestyle and continue to glorify the Lord in the process.
Tomorrow is our family's big fall festival (over 50 vendors this year!). It will be a super busy day for us but I will try and get photos to share! Hope your weekend is *wonderful*! Thanks for stopping!
