I’ve had a few arguments with people, but I never carry a grudge. You know why? While you’re carrying a grudge, they’re out dancing. ~Buddy Hackett~
For many of us the holidays are a sad season, full of past memories and lonely times.
After my morining trip to the scale this a.m. I came to this conclusion.
It is bad enough to be sad. But fat and sad is worse. Enough already. Lettuce anyone?
Why is it that we do not remember what we learned over the last year? Why is it that we eat at Christmas like there is no tomorrow…when Christmas is all about the hope of tomorrow?
If you are struggling with your weight today… I encourage you to go to this blog http://manmeetsscale.com/ and listen to Jennie’s Story–she lost 300 pounds with Weight Watchers… and you will be encouraged beyond your eating.
Hugs to a smaller size…

December is the month of trees. Well, it used to be! Christmas tree putter-uppers used to wait till December I to place baubled trees in every retail establishment in North America. Little by little the date changed to right after Thanksgiving, and then it was Halloween. This year I saw my first tree about the end of August. Rushing the season a bit, aren’t we?
Retailers want our Christmas money; first come, first served is their motto. Yet, many employers instruct their staff not to say Merry Christmas ‘in case they offend somebody.’
The tree always offends because it is a symbol of another tree.
Acts 5:29-31– Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Savior, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins (KJV).
This year, let’s ‘Merry Christmas’ one and all and remind folks why we ‘tree’.
Prayer: Lord God, maker of all trees, especially the one that held Jesus, may we be walking trees of remembrance for all we meet this season. In Christ. Amen.
