Quote of the Day: Hebrews 12:1 (New International Reader’s Version)
1 A huge cloud of witnesses is all around us. So let us throw off everything that stands in our way. Let us throw off any sin that holds on to us so tightly. Let us keep on running the race marked out for us.
Received from Charmaine, Wagging Tales, blogger, Down-under. So glad to know you! Thanks for honoring me!!

This one is from Laurel’s Leaves. She brings out the creative writer in ME.
I felt myself pulling back last week. I was trying to get out of groups and activities. I was retreating. It’s hard to tell, sometimes, are you retreating because you’re tired and need a rest, or are you retreating because you don’t feel up to the task? Are you saying to yourself: I’m not good enough?
I have a few people in my camp who won’t let me say, “But, I’m not good enough.” or “Who am I to….whatever – write, get published, play music, teach?” (fill in your own art/insecurities here).
Instead, these people say, “Of course you can, Silly. Now, get out there and DO it. The world is waiting. Quit talking that crazy talk.”
Journaling Prompt: Name the people who are in your camp of confidence. Write them a thank-you. Write about a time when you felt lifted up.

I love stir fry. I was going to make something else for dinner tonight, but now I’m craving it! Thanks for the culinary inspiration!
Hope you and the fam enjoy it! It’s a dish that both healthy AND good.
Congrats on your Awards, much deserved and always fun!
Congrats on your awards, Mary. You deserve them both. 🙂
Congrats, Mary, on the awards. Well-deserved! Loved your list…loved the humor about loving stir fry and the kids didn’t.
Congrats on your awards! I’m in love with reading everyone’s “lists”…so fun to find out little things about my blogging buddies. I too love stir fry and especially canned bean sprouts…which might make me strange but they are oh so tasty!
Look at you with all your awesome awards! Totally deserved on your part, I might add. In fact, I posted another one with your name on it only yesterday. Congratulations! Have an excellent weekend.
Congrats on all your awards. I just wanted to let you know that I’m over here following you from Roxy’s blog.
Thanks all of you for further affirmations. Goodnes. I’ll blog again tonight on all the love. And, a big hello to sarahjayne!
Hi, Mary! I have an award for you on my Sat. post. This one was meant to be yours. 🙂
