Hello everyone! I hope you had a great Monday! I know... Great and Monday in the same sentence seems a little bit like an oxymoron, but you know what I meant. :)
I have a few quick things to ask of you. Actually... a few prayer requests.
First... Please pray for my brother Brad. I don't know why I am just now posting this here (I already posted it on facebook, so I just forgot to mention it here). Call it a blonde moment. :) Anyway, Brad has been getting these really bad infections in his legs for the last year. Usually his leg swells up and get's really red, but then he will take some antibiotics and he usually gets better. Along with this infection comes chills, fever, and basically puts him in bed for a few days then he is fine. Well... last Tuesday he got a new side effect from the infection (at least we think it was from the infection, they are still doing some tests), he couldn't open his right eye, and has some weakness in his leg and arm. So... a few days went by, he went to Urgent Care and basically they said if it doesn't get better in a day or so, to go to the hospital. So, my parents took him to the hospital last Thursday night and he has been there since. Please pray that God heal his leg, and also help my brother deal with some issues that he needs to take care of for this infection to go away and stay away. Also, please pray for them that he is able to get back to work soon. He has been out since last Tuesday and they are on a very tight budget, as we all are.
Second.... I would like for you to pray for me today. I have some things that are going on right now that I can't really talk about yet, but please just pray that God has his hand in this, and that if it is his will... things will be perfect and I can share this with you in the coming weeks. Also, please pray for my family, as this will have an affect on all of us. Sorry to be so mysterious, but just consider this an unspoken request and pray! I would appreciate it greatly!
Finally... please pray for my momma! She has her shoulder replacement surgery a month ago, and she is dealing with aches and pains that go along with it, but please pray that God help her get the strength back in her arm that she so desperately desires.
Thank you for that... and now, onto something so awesome that I can hardly contain myself... I have a recipe to share... but for now, I am only going to tempt you with a picture of the final outcome to tempt your tastebuds to come back later for the full recipe!
mmm.... this treat is so yummy and you wouldn't believe it... but it Weight Watcher speak... only 1 point! I got this recipe off of TheWWChick's blog. She is a WW leader here in my area and I just found her blog. I love it! She has great tips and she also has a great WW testimony. She lost 80 lbs and have maintained that loss for the last 7 years! Wow! Anyway... These are so yummy, you are not going to believe how yummy they are! Anyway... I am going to post my very first recipe with pictures... later this evening! So... hope you all come back to check it out! You will be glad that you did! :)
Love ya's... and now, I am off to go bowling with my dad!
