But what about making your life an example to others? How about letting your light shine for others?
Chaplain Terry talks with Dr. Jose Rojas about turning a casual New Years Resolution into a life changing new drive for your life. It’s the kind of change that will change everyone around you.

travelers with medical issues can get stress relief from the Transportation
Safety Administration. The TSA now has a toll-free phone line to help those
people before they get to the airport. The service is called TSA Cares, and
it’s a place for travelers to get answers to questions about the least-stressful
way of going through pre-flight screening. The agency says when a traveler with
a medical condition or disability calls, “A representative will provide
assistance either with information about screening that is relevant to the
passenger’s specific disability or medical condition, or the passenger may be
referred to disability experts.” TSA advises people to call 72 hours before
they’re going to travel so customer service managers can coordinate support at
the screening checkpoints.

Steven Arterburn, popular author, speaker, and radio host, shows readers what they need to give up in order to have God’s best for their lives. After candidly sharing his give-up moment, he examines eight things that hold Christians back–including guilt and shame, resentment, ear, anger, and isolation. He then helps readers give up their lives to God, resulting in lives full of hope, love, trust, forgiveness, connection, community, and much more.

The added benefit of a rescued pet? For a busy Mom who doesn’t need anyone else to clean up after (I know there will be the occasional accident no matter what w/ a pet) … but to think that you could find just the right ‘warm bundle of love’ that’s already House Trained is very appealing to this mom.
Why put yourself through the torment of trying to find a gift in the very crowded, ‘not a single parking left in sight’ , very picked through stores?!?

If you need an easy, inexpensive dinner idea for tonight … I ( Becky) think I will try to add some fresh mushrooms, and may some spinach?
It’s that time of year, that your child may bring some sort of virus home … just in time for vacation … My oldest son, Zac came home this week from school feeling miserable, that spiraled into a fever all night, throwing up all day yesterday … and, although it was exhausting, I’m so glad I have a job that allowed me to take part of a sick day myself to be there for him in his time of misery … Loving your sick kids … and all that comes w/ that …sure isn’t pretty. But, it really reminded me of how my Heavenly Father loves us even when we’re at our worst. We don’t have to clean ourselves up in order for Him to wrap His arms around us and hold us. When we need Him, He loves us first, then helps us get back on our feet and cleaned up. (I was inspired by a fellow mommy’s blog – check it out here.
