Not sure what the "plank" thing is. I am interested in a team thing as long as it is simple.

Hubby and I took on a beginners 30 day plank challenge. We started at 20 seconds and are up to 95! We are so amazed at how difficult it is but yet how far we have come! This challenge was such a good one in a couple of ways. 1. It has been achievable segments. 2. I had a real person doing it with me which helps me stick to it. 3. We can see and feel a difference. 4. It has motivated both of us to do more fitness because it has revealed weak spots. 5. It has been huge in encouragement that we can accomplish hard things! I am sure if I dwell more on this I could come up with five more. So this challenge has been just that challenging! But such a good feeling of personal achievement has been born! I can do do all things through Christ who strengthens me!
Maybe we as a team can take on a challenge together that increases our confidence and moves us towards a more fit and healthy group. What do you say any fitness challenge suggestions? Chime in with your ideas, we can choose one and move on to the next! We are limitless when the Lord is with us and we give Him the Glory!!

Yes! I have a couple of them ! 1. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! Phil. 4:13

2. There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that he are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that he may be able to bear it. 1 Corinthians. 10:13

I think my favorite excercise is walking, outside in nice weather. But when I cant do that, swimming in indoor pool is a close second.

Do you have scripture that helps you when you are feeling unmotivated?

Be kind to yourself

This answer depends on the situation at hand. I always offer to pray with them right then and if I have had an experience that has given me wisdom in the situation I will share it if it will help and they want to hear it. But generally prayer is the best fix it there is and I find its effects are greatest when its done with the person and ASAP!!

A recent good day was our record amount of applesauce in a record amount of time! It just gets better every year! we are always amazed at how the Lord blesses each time we host this!

Today was a simple horse ride with my daughter to get some hill work for the horses! I was a horse rider as a kid and really am enjoying getting back into it with my kids! We live in the most beautiful spot, especially this time of year! God is so good!!

I think my question was tough, I see many special gifts that God has blessed me with and I am witness to wonderful outcomes as I have walked in His counsel but not without trials or challenges in the process. It is I suppose a talent to accept Him and follow Him but not without His call or enablement! So I really have nothing without The Lord God !!! He is my talent and reward!!

What does a good day in your life look like?

Of all the answers I could say about changing one thing, most you would think would benefit me more. What I say is staying stable in my weight & then I would be thinner. My problem with this issue is definitely something that could lead to all kinds of health problems, emotionally & disease. It all started when a doctor whom was having a stork over prescribed my medicine. I had a drug attack, and dropped 20 pounds in a day and a half. After that I seemed to have the habit of over eating when I was scared, or my life was out of control in any way. Later this manifests itself into just another bad habit of excessive eating. And the media really pushes it more , with mindless eating.

Name a problem in any relationship you would like to change.

I can't really call my housecleaning a system. We have divided the house into sections enough for everyone to have one section a day. Then we rotate these so each person has each section throughout the week. Example : Sun. I clean upstairs bathroom and vacuum the hallway, Monday I clean the downstairs bath and dining room, Tues. I do outside chores (water garden, haul wood, milk cow),Wed. I sweep porches and walks, Thurs. I fix breakfast and clean the kitchen, Fri. I clean the living room, etc. I have a list for each day covering each area and when I am in that area I do the nitty gritty dirt day jobs that require more deep cleaning.


Are you a person with many friends and acquaintances or just a few close friends?

I enjoy the board game "Settlers of Catalan", but I don't like the extensions to the set so much. I also like the informal "dictionary game" where you try to get people to vote for your fake definition of words... I think there is an official board game of that type, but I like the paper and pencil version a lot.

What is your favorite system for house cleaning?

I don't know about " the most important way" but our way is to serve in areas that we become aware of by way of help, money, goods, a meal, or just a listening ear. Really whatever God puts on our heart to do for whomever is it!!

I like to walk outside for exercise, usually in the evening, at 5 or 6 pm. Most of the time I will walk even if there is driving rain. It doesn't snow where I live, and the weather is pretty mild most of the time.

What do you think is the most important thing to do to show the love of Jesus to those around you in a practical way?

Our old time tradition is our canning bee. We gather apples invite anyone who want applesauce and and we work together to send sauce canned and ready to go on the shelf at home. Our biggest year we cranked out 740 quarts. Some of this was taken home in buckets to make applebutter from! Its good fun!

If the truth be told I choose to knit with my slippers on and not exercise when its cold. Of course they are indoor/ outdoor slipper in case I need a chunk of wood for the fire. This almost could be exercise :-)

We did the first part of our study last night on the prayer of Jabez! I read this many years ago and my family has prayed it nearly every morning for over 10 years. It was a wonderful refresher to listen to the book again. And I'm looking forward to the rest of our study. This is a powerful prayer!

Do you opt for indoor workouts when the weather gets cold?

I met a person for coffee yesterday afternoon and had my first of the season pumpkin spice latte on ice, I like it better hot I found so I will wait until its cooler or on a chilly morning. That cleared up some space in my mental craving list though. Not so tempted now!

Have you read the Prayer of Jabez? Are you praying it daily ?

I think I need more of God's truth, because I am a relatively new believer, and I have not spent enough time in his word yet.

My question, how long have you been a believer?

What an accurate choice for most of us Gralan! I so enjoy the human imperfections and the demonstration of them in the lives of those God chose. It gives me hope!
There are many that really reveal my character flaws and strengths but I think I relate to Balaams donkey who tried to help him in her own my way at the time.
Such a great question!!

Are you a person who needs more of God's truth to balance your love or more love to balance God's truth?

I don't seem to notice it getting shorter yet here in South Texas. I hadn't thought of that though, so perhaps I'll start seeing it.

I do like a real wood fire, myself. Although for heating a huge place, I'd rather not have to get up at regular intervals to keep it going. But there are things one can do, and especially if one just uses the thermostat as a backup... just keep the stove-pipe/chimney clean please.

Okay, which secondary person in the plot of our History as God's people do you identify with (in the Bible, I mean)? For me: I kind of identify with the person, character and situation of Onesimus (find him in Philemon). emoticon

I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.

Yes I have but it has been years and years ago. That is where I first heard the term "knife and fork " burger. When I went I had the chili burger, which was wonderful! My kids have been there more recently and being young and skinny they especially like the bottomless fries!!:-) sadly they are not bottomless for me ;>)


I am currently moving our firewood to the woodshed and would ask this... Are you one who likes the fire and all its benefits like warming you several times before ever seeing a flame or do you prefer the simplicity of a furnace with a leisurely walk to the thermostat?

Oh yes, but over the past two decades I've been learning how to surrender it eventually. God has been tempering me, as my wife can attest, during this time of my being broken, melted and molded. I still get it, at times, but my wife says she now feels much safer near me because God is changing me. It certainly must not be the result of my own effort, lest it be by my flesh and not God's work.

Have you ever eaten at Red Robin? If so, what'd you enjoy? If not, what is your favorite burger? (gardenberger, buffalo, beef, &c, your choice of patty).

I do not have a favorite but I really like the song Greatly Blessed sung accapella by the Gaither singers at a tent meeting.

What is your favorite breakfast meal?

My favorite memory is the pastor that led me to the Lord after my divorce and helped me plug in to a single moms group that eventually (3years later) lead me to my husband now of 23 years!!


Have you ever milked a cow?

My favorite front door color is blue, as it is a remembrance of my life in New Mexico. My wife and I are both cat and dog lovers, having owned both to our great joy. With our disabilities and living in an apartment though, we only do cats. In fact, my wife's doctor informed her that she was qualifying our two cats as her "aide animals". That's absolutely true, and if one has done right by the cats they entertain, they cuddle, they talk, they play, and more. Medical science has shown cats can reduce anxiety, provide calm, etc. We didn't need to pay a pet deposit (~$350 for 2 cats), and it was the first time the manager had ever heard of that.

What is your favorite memory regarding a church congregation?

I think my question was not right somehow, so, I will pose another if that is alright.

Are you a dog or a cat kind of person?

I just love spending time with the Lord at the park. I take my CD player and play religious songs, some Bibles, sometimes my electronic Bible concordance, pencil and tablet. I love talking with the Lord and asking him to speak to my heart during our special time together.
This week I spent a couple of hours there and then continued when I got home probably for a couple of more hours. When I take time like this, I get a spiritual high. I need more such moments.



How often do you find yourself facing stress and challenges in your life? How do you handle them?

I actually would have to say the combination of listening/reading. And the way I process the information best is through contemplative conversation with my wife and/or other believers present. Second best is by writing, if no one else is available. I include in the contemplative conversation my active prayers to our great God and Savior.

I am convinced if you cannot talk to others about it, then you don't really know it. It is not necessary to be eloquent about the things of God's reality, but that is quite different than being unable to communicate those things at least to other believers.

What is your current favorite Bible book or passage, and why does it intrigue you?

One of my pet peeves is dishonesty. So my goal for a lasting message especially with my kids is reliable honesty no frosted over cushy comfort but the truth. So far so good from the feedback I get, praise be to God!!

The teaching this past Sunday was so very meaningful to me. I wanted to hear more & more, don’t you know?

Some topics covered:

~ Getting to the point where God’s Word is on our tongue – coming out of our mouth.

~ What it means to be a person who does justly.

~ Be an example of repentance – do not stay in sin. King David was used as an example of a man who repented & did not stay in his sin choices.

~ Our Abba’s covenant/commitment of unconditional love & how it remains constant – even though all our ups & downs. That is the message of the cross of Jesus! \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/

~ God’s ability to raise someone up for His glory. Example: David.

~ And many, many more points made!



What will the lasting message of your life be?


Something to know about this gal "Ima" - I follow the Savior of the world!

I stand in awe of the salvation, through Christ Jesus, that Creator God has granted me. May you enjoy the same!

I am so very thankful that the door of access is permanently open to The Creator & His beloved Son, Christ Jesus!

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." ~ Psalm 33:12 --- IN GOD WE TRUST

When I hear that phrase(and we say it here at home occasionally) I always think of my husband. Years ago, he knew the Lord was leading him to preach, but the idea of doing it terrified him. At one point he was talking to our then-pastor, who told him "It's okay to be afraid. Do it afraid. But just do it." That's always stuck with me. It comes to mind often when I am facing my own fears or doubts.

What did you learn about in church today, if you attended? If not, what is the Lord speaking to you about today?

I like the idea of impacting lives in a practical way, I have often thought a bed and breakfast/working farm would be neat if the Lord allowed.


We all have fears of various degrees, what are your thoughts about the statement" so your afraid, then do it afraid". How does this impact your relationship with your fear?

My pet peeve is rude people. Seems like you see them more and more every day. Everyone is in a hurry and many think only about their own needs. What does it cost to be a little kind to a stranger or have a little patience for someone who might be a little slow?

What would you do for a living if you could do anything you wanted to do right now?

As a teen and a young adult, my life was a vicious cycle... go to church for a while, try to live for God, then several months or a year down the road I would end up falling away. I actually reached a point of telling God that I would never go back to Him...partially because of certain things that were going on in my life that caused me to feel that He didn't care for me, and partially because I knew what would happen - I would fall away again anyway so why bother. But at one point, He started doing some major heavy work in me, despite how hard I fought against Him. One of the many things He did was open my eyes of understanding to see myself as He was. He made me to understand that my cycle of falling away was because I was living from the viewpoint of value and worth. I knew God accepted me and saved me regardless of my unworthiness, but I didn't realize how much pressure I was putting on myself to live up to His expectations. And eventually I would fall away because it was "too hard" to live for Him- I just couldn't measure up. In my mind, I was too much of a bother for Him to deal with. One of the greatest things God has ever taught me is that when He accepted me in salvation, He already knew every mistake I would ever make. He knew how many times I would fail, yet He still loved me, chose me, and draw me to come to Him. I don't have to be "good enough" in my actions. I trust Him to consistently change me into His image, shining His light and bearing His fruit, but none of those things will make Him love me any more than He already does.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

If I had the super power of choice it would be to be able to go back in history to observe things that happened in peoples lives so that I could understand the loads they carry and why they are like they are. On the same note I would love to see what life was like when in full swing on some of the old abandoned farms (barns and fields) and farmhouses I see across our state.

What realized truth after Salvation was very impacting on your relationship with God?

Just one? this is tough. I wanted to say, after praying as a teenager "please Lord don't let me date anyone else until Mr. Right comes along". I did not date for quite awhile and almost regretted the prayer. Hee Hee. However, I met Mr. Right on the college campus and in just a few months later we got married and have been now for almost 47 years.
My most surprised moment, was running into a high school friend in a store in Germany while my DH was stationed there.

I own this 4-book series, and yesterday I finished reading the 4th, titled Amethyst. It is a series written by Lauraine Snelling. It is Christian Fiction, and centers around two young girls, Ruby and her young sister Opal. Their father, who disappeared from their lives years ago when their mom died, sends a letter informing them that he is dying, and asking them to come to Dakotah Territory to receive their inheritance. After their arrival, they learn that the inheritance is definitely not what they expected. Ruby's only thought is to run, getting her young sister far away from this place, but a deathbed promise keeps her from doing so. I have read this series several times. I enjoy novels set in this time period, and in this series the reader can see God working in the lives of each of the characters. He's not just a by-word in the story-line, but is an intricate part of the entire unfolding.

What is the best surprise moment you have ever had?

Roughing it to me is camping out with no electricity and in a tent. Did this a lot when my children were kids. We have so many cherished memories of this time together. We had to entertain ourselves at night with a fire, hot dogs, smoores and each other's conversation. We had not tv, cell phones or other things to take us away from being with each other. The kids all had tents and so did we. Wonderful times of roughing it. Hopefully my daughter will continue this with her son when he gets older.

What is the last book you read? Can we have a little book report?

My dream ministry is for the elderly that do not have the resources or abilities to be as active or productive as they were. I and my hubby would like to have acreage that could accommodate them and we could grow a garden, raise animals etc. A practical working farm life where folks could find a place that allows them to be useful and valued. The elderly have so much wisdom for those of us that have come after them. This is stuff we need to know in order to understand where we have come from. We as the younger generation offer a hope to those who feel their lives coming to a close. We all have valuable parts and pieces to the puzzle called life. It just takes a willingness to see them in others and draw them out.

What is roughing it to you?

I tend to do better if I feel like I'm competing against a buddy, even if I'm exercising alone. If I know a friend is walking daily, and we compare progress, then I'm more apt to try to out-walk that friend.

Peter. In his love and protection of his friend Jesus, he said "Far be it for you to die" (paraphrase). His personal emotions, his love of Jesus, was a good thing, but because of it, he wasn't seeing that the plan of God was to, indeed, die. Also, he denied Christ three times. Later, Christ asked him three times "Do you love me? Feed my sheep." In studying this, I've noticed two things - (1) I believe Jesus was using this 3-times-repeated question to bring restoration to Peter. Our words have power, and when Peter spoke his denial of Christ, I'm sure there were results in the spiritual realm. Now Christ has him speaking aloud his love for Christ 3 times - a reversal of his previous words. (2) The first two times, Jesus said "Do you love me?" He used the word "agapao" meaning loving much - agape love. Both times, Peter answered that he did love Him, but Peter used the word "phileo" which means to be a friend of or to be fond of. But the third time, Jesus said, "Do you love me" and He used the word "phileo" - the same word Peter was using. I believe Jesus was saying, "You think you love me much- with agape love - but you do not. (We think we love God, but in reality we don't even truly know what love is and cannot love God unless He teaches us HOW to love Him.) You don't love me in the truest sense of the word, but do you love me in at least the limited ability that you have?" He meets us where we are and doesn't expect us to do what we do not yet know how to do.

What's for supper at your house tonight?

I like the story of Joshua and the people walking around the city of Jehrico. Years ago I heard an explanation of how the people were able to bring down the walls like they did. Walled cities in those days were extremely thick and sometimes people actually lived in the walls. The people were told to march around the city every day and shout and on the last day to blow trumpets and shout. All this marching and shouting caused a lot of vibrations which worked the same way an earth quake does--undermining the ground around the wall. Add the sound of all those trumpets and the shouting and it was enough to crumble the wall.
God can use the most simple act of obedience for His purposes!

Forgot my question after my answer, sorry!


Are you a table game or puzzle person? If so what is your preferred gaMme or puzzle type?

How I feel is more important than what I weigh! How my clothes fit is beginning to matter more!!

We watched a video called a taste of Italy a few years ago. This was after we had built our wood fired brick bake oven. In every region they used the wood bake ovens. My regional food is Italian and the technique is using a wood fired oven to its max! Bread baked in one is spectacular! I'm looking for more recipes to try. This fascinates me!!

I absolutely love playing pool (3-ball, 8-ball, 9-ball, Reverse pool, 1-15), and am fond of steel-tip darts. But those two are something I haven't done in a while. Last 9 years I am a Sudoku fanatic (I've even made my own puzzles). My wife and I enjoy Spades and Hearts together. And I'm still wondering where to find a Table Shuffleboard, I find it relaxing and non-taxing (and takes me back in my mind to my days in college.)


What's your favorite style of regional food or technique of cooking? Be as specific as you'd like. emoticon

I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.
