I didn’t want to tell you…but

Now I can!!  I laughed out loud when the Auberge MacDonald Guest Inn ( Iroquois Falls, ON), devotional showed up on everydaychristian.com. You see I write those devotionals months ahead and this one showed up the day before I was leaving for the same spot one more time!!

Yes, Grandson Dan, Grandaughter Lorisa and I headed for the lovely little town of Iroquios Falls the very next day. Coincidence you might say, but definitely encouraging to me as we made the long trek. Did I mention that   Iroquios Falls is made ever more beautiful by the presence of the three other Grands and their parents?

Had a great visit and we ate the best ever chocolate caramel cake. If you ask, I will share the recipe. If not? It is ours forever to salivate over.

Worn and Ragged

Before you get anxious about me, I am only speaking about some of my clothes. God blessed me with lots of new ones so now I have to toss the ‘what is not so good’ away. After all the closet is only so big, right?

But I love those tattered old bits. They’ve accompanied me through thick and thin, hardship and joy.

They are like old habits. Some of them have to go. What old habits are hanging around your body? I won’t even begin to discuss that. Take it up with God.

Hugs. Brenda

 

Still in Shock over this Review!! WOW

Book Review

Reviewed by Alice D. for Readers Favorite
“Meeting Myself” is a well-written 98 page book that will appeal to anyone fighting off inner demons by eating and to all those who may have done so since an early age. Author Brenda Wood has issues with food since an early age. She even recalls herself starting to eat her younger brother Larry’s chocolate Easter Bunny as well as her own as a four year old. Brenda Wood admits to having great inner anger at having been abused as a child. She doesn’t say what the abuse was or when, but the reader will surmise it wasn’t nice. Brenda Wood went from satisfying her fear of things and need for comfort by eating on to eating and then throwing up in the toilet which is bulimia. Even a happy, satisfying marriage did not cure Brenda’s demons until she took her Christian faith seriously and learned that God is with us in good times and bad times and proved it in her daily life.
“Meeting Myself” is a book that should be in everyone’s hands everywhere. Brenda Wood honestly tells the reader about her not always smooth path to controlling her eating binges, her bulimia. Brenda Wood is forthright in telling the reader how she would decide to walk with God and then lose her resolve and go on an eating binge. What she shares with the Christian reader is priceless in its honesty. On page 93 she writes: “Expose both abuse and eating disorder to the light. ..Keep telling until someone believes you.” She admits that she had great anger against her abuser, anger against the people who should have protected her from that abuse, and anger against herself. “Meeting Myself” is a book that will guide, inspire and keep the reader going when the dark clouds of life are overwhelming.

Clean Sink

You won’t believe how easy it is to make your house look clean and to make yourself happy.
Pour 1-2 cups of javex in kitchen sink. Fill with hot water and go away for an hour. Come back –drain and voila a sparkly kitchen sink and it makes the rest of the house glow. (You won’t notice the dust!) : )

Evolutionary Common Sense

If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?
Milton Berle said this first but subconsciously, don’t we all know it?
By the seventh day God had finished his work. On the seventh day he rested from all his work. God blessed the seventh day. He made it a Holy Day because on that day he rested from his work, all the creating God had done.
This is the story of how it all started, of Heaven and Earth when they were created. Genesis 2:2-4

Here I Am Again

I’ve been missing you all! I have a new look to the page. Hope you like it.

As well you can now buy my books right off the site!

Just think, I got my own shopping cart without going to Walmart, Shoppers, or Zehrs.

Thanks to all of you who worried about me when I didn’t write.. You have no idea how much it means to me.

I finally made it to Iroquois Falls to visit our son, daughter-in-law and the darling Grands.

The ‘other’ mother-in-law (Lynn) and I ventured up the highway and only got lost once or twice. Both times were the fault of Missy, the GPS..

I asked Charles if any other mothers-in-law travelled together. His reply? “Probably, but they wouldn’t be talking!”

Lynn and I never stopped! What a wonderful time we had…..

Neither of us had seen their new house or the town, school, work place… did all that and missed the Tim’s restaurant…how did that happen!!

Feelings

My friend asked if I felt less like a pea in a drum. So I am thinking a pea in an oil barrel drum…but then I thought…maybe he meant a pea in a ‘musical’ drum. Either one sounds awful. Which would you rather be? A very tiny pea in a big frightening barrel drum filled with oil or a pea rattling around in a drum banged by a guy in a parade?

Ouch…unless I am that pea, and God is that drum and all is well…because God is good all the time. All the time, God is good…
