Taking A Stance

Sometimes in life we have to take a stance.  You either are or you are not.  We must stand up for what is right; for what is truth; for what is moral; for what is best in God's plan.  Compromise might be word that sounds good, but if you are truly a believer there is no compromise.  We take a stance in the name of the Lord.

If you are called a fanatic, let it go, let it be, be yourself and take your stance. Stand on God's word; stand on God's promise to man; Stand in God's light and His love. 

Several months ago Terry and I had to take a new stand on our health and our eating habits.  We knew just as you know, that beef is not good for you.  Sugar and white flour is not good for you.  Bread is not good for you.  Olive oil is not as good as you think it is for you.

We took a stance for better health.  God wants us to take care of our bodies, physically and emotionally. (We blew it last night when Vicki brought a birthday cake for Paul to dinner, but 98% of the time we are on target for eating better and living better.)  There has not been a loaf of bread in this house since Christmas. Occasionally Terry will buy English muffins, wheat.   Dairy has been cut back too.  Dairy is hard to digest.  We buy maybe a quart of milk every month.  We do eat a tiny bit of plain yogurt each morning... and believe it or not, we only eat one meal a day.  The yogurt is only a fourth cup with blueberries and bananas and that tides us over until one or two in the afternoon and we eat a huge salad, fresh veggies and usually fish or chicken.

A year ago I would have laughed at you if you told me I would be eating like this.  We always ate three meals a day and had a snack at night.  No wonder my weight was climbing.  With almost 20 pounds off (four 5lb bags of sugar) I can do so much more and I feel so much better.  I do not miss the food.  My weakness is birthday cake, so last night was one of those rare nights in that 2% area.
Check out  and take a stance for better health.

Is it time for you to take a stance?

Here is our dear Sheriff Paul Fletcher, Franklin County Texas.  One year older and one year better.  (yeah they make you wear those funny hats...his gun is in his holster... Arriba! )


"And the Levites—Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah and Pethahiah—said: “Stand up and praise the LORD your God, who is from everlasting to everlasting.”
   “Blessed be your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise. You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you." Nehemiah 9:5-6
