- While flipping through our hymn book today I came to this song. It had been awhile since I last sang or played it, and it was good to come across it again."For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
- When I survey the wondrous cross
- On which the Prince of glory died,My richest gain I count but loss,And pour contempt on all my pride.
- Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,Save in the death of Christ my God!All the vain things that charm me most,I sacrifice them to His blood.
- See from His head, His hands, His feet,Sorrow and love flow mingled down!Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,Or thorns compose so rich a crown?
- Were the whole realm of nature mine,That were a present far too small;Love so amazing, so divine,Demands my soul, my life, my all.

He flatters himself, perhaps, that all is right with his soul, because he has feelings, convictions, and desires, of a spiritual kind. In these he rests. He never really breaks off from sin, and casts aside the spirit of the world. He never really lays hold of Christ. He never really takes up the cross. He is a hearer of truth, but nothing more. ~ J.C. Ryle
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” James 1:22

"For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls."
1 Peter 2: 20-24

Talk about yourself.
Use "I" as often as possible.
Mirror yourself continually in the opinion of others.
Listen greedily to what people say about you.
Expect to be appreciated.
Be jealous and envious.
Be sensitive to slights.
Never forgive a criticism.
Trust nobody but yourself.
Insist on consideration and respect.
Demand agreement with your own views on everything.
Sulk if people are not grateful to you for favors shown.
Never forget a service you may have rendered.
Be on the outlook for a good time for yourself.
Shirk your duties if you can.
Do as little as possible for others.
Love yourself supremely.

I was so hungry this afternoon that I decided to do a little baking! If you have never visited Briana Thomas' website, you need to! :) She has so many yummy Trim Healthy Mama recipes it's hard to decide which one to make. I'm really excited that she is planning on publishing a cookbook soon as well! Today I made her chocolate chip cookie recipe. They turned out better than I was expecting! For my drink I make the "Singing Canary"from page 398 in the THM cookbook. It tasted amazing! I was looking for a good way to take my protein powder and this is the answer! If you don't have everything on hand you can still make it, it's versatile. Next time I might use equal parts lemon and lime juice. Here is how I made mine:
4 T. Lemon juice
3 doonks Pure Stevia Extract
1 scoop unflavoured protein powder
1 scoop Intergral Collagen
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1 1/2c. water
Mix everything but the water and ice in the bottom of a quart jar. Fill with ice to the top and then dump the water in. Stir and enjoy! :)
Note: Be sure to check out the original recipe as I left out a few ingredients I didn't have, and also changed amounts with the protein powder and Intergral Collagen.

I nursed a baby ‘till he slept,
I held a toddler while he wept,
I played a game of hide and seek,
I squeezed a toy so it would squeak,
I pulled a wagon, sang a song,
Taught a child right from wrong.
What DID I do this whole day through?
Not much that shows, I guess it’s true,
Unless you think that what I’ve done
Might be important to someone
With bright blue eyes and soft blonde hair,
If that is true, I’ve done my share.
