Having friends are really a treasure to behold. I had been blogging for more than 3 months now and I've found a lot of friends already. Each one has its own unique template and different creativity. I also learned from them and their style of writing that attracts people. It's really true that "No man is an Island." We survive because of people behind us. And I would like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your comments and encouraging messages. I truly treasure it in my heart. Your support and visit really means a lot to me as a newbie in this field. Here are some thoughts to ponder:

I started my diet since last week and I have noticed that there is a little improvement. Then I continue this week coupled with some exercises that I've missed a couple of months ago. Then lately, I started surfing on some websites and I've found this one that really suits my need. According to this article that I have read at http://www.web-articles.info/e/a/title/Exercise-Benefits-Weight-Loss-and-Beyond/ that exercise alone does not promote a substantial weight loss but it will be coupled with the reduced calorie-eating plan. Exercise benefits weight loss and beyond. And it sounds great to me because I was not doing any exercises lately and besides I was eating less but I didn't dare to look at the calories that I'm taking. The article also states that exercise is the key strategy for keeping weight loss. Numerous studies have found out that doing physical activities within the week, for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity of any type of physical exercises have many benefits to the human body. Like a reduced risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, high colosterol, colon and breast cancer and diabetes. It can also reduce stress that most of the people including me are concerned of, and can improve mental health. So why not start? As I was reading this. I'm encouraged to continue my long-awaited exercises that was stopped few months ago. I also agree to this article because I'm a woman - we felt better if we have done some exercises and we can do more jobs. But for men, it's different as what my hubby was always saying, no pain, no gain. If he does exercises regularly he gains strength and he feels better. There's a study at Stanford University about men and women participating in diet-only weight loss program and in diet with exercise. It shows that men in the diet with exercise program were less hungry and we're able to follow the diet. The result was found encouraging and beneficial. I think, I better start tomorrow.

Where you go I'll go
Where you stay I'll stay
Your people will be my people
Your GOD will be my GOD
This is the verse that I would like to share this Thankful Thursday. Since the last week I was meditating upon this verse while reading the book of Ruth. She was a kind, caring woman. She loved her mother-in-law. She promised to stay with Naomi for as long as she lived.
The book of Ruth is a story of kindness and faithfulness, a tale of integrity, hardship and blessing. The love that they shared proves that we can never really know someone until we've wept with them. As what the saying goes and I quote, "Weep until you are maleable - God shapes best clay made soft by tears."Suffering had made them partners in their sorrow.
She was living in a different culture with different beliefs and tradition but the greatest bond between them (Ruth an Naomi) was their trust with each other. Love as strong as Ruth's results in TRUST.
Ruth's love yielded a harvest of grace and placed her name in the ancestry of JESUS!
Today I'm thankful
- of the love of Ruth shown to Naomi
- of how God works to different people with different circumstances
- of God's love to mankind
- of His great love inspite of who I am
- of the hardship and strength to endure
- that in the midst of sufferings an sorrows - God is still there and He understands
- of the wisdom that comes from God Have a blessed and memorable birthday !!! LYN. Visit Spiritually Unequal Marriage for more TT posts.
Today, I'm so glad when I received an email that my blog is already approved by paperpost. It's quite a nice feeling. Although I didn't mind it anymore since I already submitted it few months ago and it was disapproved due to many reasons. However, now I'm happy and excited to write. So I checked to my open opportunities and started to make a post. Wow! It's so exciting, hope I can do more posts. A blessed and exciting day to all!
Scents are of any kind. It could be fresh ( like after taking a bath and you feel fresh) , or either a cologne or a perfume. Speaking of perfume, I'm not keen of having it but there are scents that I wanted to buy because it smells fresh and cool. Everytime I smell from others I really wanted to ask but of course I'm shy to do it. But I remember last year, when we were in the Phil. my sister gave me a perfume. It was Obsession Night (Calvin Klein) perfume. I like it a bit but not that I wanted. I'm still looking for that smell that I like yet I'm not sure of the name of that perfume. Hopefully, in the coming months or years I can have it. Scents differ and vary. This site provides something that you can't resist. You can check this kind of perfume. They have unique fragrances for men and women alike, and besides they have also for bath and body cologne and gift sets. They provide different scents of your choice. Try it out!
