New Years resolution: Eliminate Energy Drains!
The above are hints on how to improve your physical health and the passage below will help with your spiritual health.
- Lighten Up.Depress the melatonin level by getting more light. Either more daylight or an extra light bulb on at night
- Chew on healthy snacks (apple, bannana and non- fat yogurt) Avoid high sugar and corn syrup products
- How about a nap? Longer than 30 minutes may make you groggy
- Visit an upbeat friend and talk about something your interested to arouse the brain
- Take a stroll, don't think excercise. Meditate while walking.
A Complete Restoration
God loves to decorate. God has to decorate.
Let him live long enough in a heart, and that heart will begin to change. Portraits of hurt will be replaced by landscapes of grace. Walls of anger will be demolished and shaky foundations restored. God can no more leave a life unchanged than a mother can leave her child's tear untouched.
This might explain some of the discomfort in your life. Remodeling of the heart is not always pleasant. We don't object when the Carpenter adds a few shelves, but he's been known to gut the entire west wing. He has such high aspirations for you. God envisions a Complete Restoration. He won't stop until he is finished. He wants you to be just like Him.

|Donate to the Salvation Army Tsunami Fund|
Here is where you can donate to the Salvation Army Tsunami fund online. The following is a letter from the General of the Salvation Army
The terrible tsunami disaster in South Asia is a tragedy for the whole human family. And just as members of a family rally round when tragedy strikes, so the world family is coming to the aid of those who have suffered. Salvationists, particularly, identify themselves with all who suffer loss, so in these tragic circumstances we commit ourselves to do all we can to help alleviate suffering and give practical help.
As soon as news of the current disaster was received, the Emergency Services at International Headquarters swung into action, as did Salvationists in most of the countries which suffered devastation.
I call on all readers of this message to pray for those whose lives have so unexpectedly met with tragedy, and especially for those who have been bereaved. Pray also for all who are engaged in the relief ministry. Pray for the nations which have suffered, and pray for their leaders. I also call on those who can help practically to do so by offering financial support for the relief work. Donations can be made in a matter of minutes by clicking on the the donate button below.
May God, our Heavenly Father, sustain in a special way those of his family who have been stricken.

On a recent broadcast of the Late Late Show on CBS she mused that there are disadvantages of looking young such as being forced to show her birth identification when going to places that serve alcohol. The hostess was not sympathetic and asked if they offered her crayons while waiting.
