Christmas is coming ...

Well, think about that.  Somehow, the summer has flown by, Halloween is just around the corner and the Christmas shelves in the stores are appearing.  This is a stressful season for many.  For your family, for your sanity, but mostly for you, make this year fly by smoothly.  
To to that, you need to be starting now.  Work on preparing your menu (and if you are hosting Thanksgiving, why not sit down and work out both menus in one sitting).  When you are shopping for your Thanksgiving menu, add a few things from your Christmas baking list at the same time.  I have joined because I found her journal "Cruising Through the Holidays" and it can be downloaded for free from (   I love that she has it all mapped out for me to have a stress free holiday season, from getting my house in order to my shopping lists.  I plan on enjoying myself and my family this year, baby steps at a time starting right now.
Stress...causes you to gain weight, causes all sorts of health issues,causes chaos in your home and family.  If I can reduce my stress, I will look better, feel better and have a happier family.  It all starts with a decision by me.  I can achieve whatever my Lord wants me to, because he will walk me through it.  Right now, it is simply shedding a few pounds before the holidays kick in and organizing myself.  I am eating healthier (just had my tall hot lemon water to get my morning started:).  You can do whatever it is you need to do too; don't accept excuses from yourself.  
It all starts with a decision.  Your beauty starts from within you, and it is timeless.  Whatever it is that you need to get done, set your goal, it will mark your course.  It will set your attitude where it needs to be to accomplish that goal.  
"Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim." 
1 Corinthians 9:26

I love my Lord, I love my life, I love my family. God indeed is good, he has done mighty things. "Living in the present means squarely accepting and responding to it as God's moment for you now while it is called "today" rather than wishing it were yesterday or tomorrow." Evelyn Underhill I am happy to teach people that they can take dreams and turn them into reality as we teach them how. There are many wonderful friends in my life because of the business my husband and I are in; it is always good to find new people looking to expand their horizons.
