"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
My discouragement and faith argue at least 200 times a day.
I am so thankful God keeps pulling me through... it could be worse... I could be at Boot Camp. Wow.
Little brother is doing well over in Georgia (Boot Camp)! He was interviewed for an article that is following his group though Boot Camp. I love it, because I can follow what the heck he's doing over there. I haven't heard from him at all and my parents have only heard from him once. All we know is that he's cold, tired and sick of the younger idiot guys in his group. I'm just praying for his strength and patience to make it through this so he can get to his real medic training. He so needs this. He has been lost for 6 or so years and desperately needs a purpose and a career.
Its only Thursday and this diet is getting old, but I'm doing really good! No milk, carbs OR sugar in atleast 6 days. Two weeks is the minimum and I am just focusing on getting those down. I read something about a man who had some terrible acne that he discovered was from milk and it took a year OFF dairy for his skin to stop flaring up... granted, he was eating a pint of ice cream every single day... I'm shooting for 2 - 4 weeks to see a difference and hopefully be able to start adding one or two things back in! :) The only thing getting me through right now is Smucker's Organic Peanut Butter.... if you tell me this is bad for my diet I may just dig a hole and get in. I have NO idea how people ever did the Atkins (is this even still around?) or South Beach Diets. And a blessing: I also had a chemical peel today! On to looking like a 26 year old!
We're in week 4 of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University and I'm obsessed. Seriously, while I'm watching it I'm thinking to myself, 'How can I make sure every single person I know takes this class so they can all be debt & stress-free.' If there is one thing about this, I do wish it was a requirement before getting married or graduating college or even better, graduating high school! (I'm not sure I would have understood the grasp of it then, but still... I think it is THAT beneficial) If you do anything to help your future go take his class or borrow the DVDs right now. I'll let you borrow mine.
I do so wish I had interesting or fun things to blog about, but apparently my blogging works better when I'm not in school. Thank the Lord for getting me this close! I do not like to wish my life away, but I can't help this one. 154 days & counting!
