The Weekly Reflection




On the vegetarian front:

The Good: Roasted Chickpeas with olive oil and garlic salt. I ate a whole can on Wednesday.


Soy sour cream with onion soup mix. Yummy on Triscuits.


Barilla Plus with protein, fiber, omega-3 Here

The Bad:

Hummus ūüė¶

Tofu hot-dogs

Everything soy or tofu has a mushy consistency. Even when I fry it. Help, anyone?


Anna Bella is gonna be an actor, she will be in the youth Christmas play at our church. She will play the part of: lamb 1.


You can elf yourself, HERE¬† Hubby did it, but I’m not gonna show you because instead of my face he used Marilyn Monroe.


Have you ever had the feeling of something just being off?

Like things are going on around you and you are not supposed to know about it?

I wonder if this is ¬†‘living in a fishbowl’ feeling?

woh, woh, woh¬†feelings….

Lately I have been so busy inserting my foot in my mouth then trying to pry it loose just to slam it back up in the big gaping pie hole once again. *sigh*

Maybe I’m just lonely. I don’t talk to many people. No outside employment, hubby and boy really don’t like conversations (it’s a guy thing) At church I try to keep my mouth shut, emphasis on TRY, backed out of a few volunteer things at the church cuz I thought I was doing too much.

I find that my whole center revolves around church and after the church split my faith in fellow christian brethren as friends was shattered. I don’t have many friends other than at church.

When I do get into a conversation with another, I just ramble, ramble, ramble. I’m sure they probably think I’m a nut case.


Yesterday was pretty harsh, harsh is a relative term here, since there are far harsh-er things happening to others all over.

But our chest freezer downstairs ‘got unplugged’ for the second time in the last 6 months. We have had 100$ of dollars worth of food ruined. Wasted. I hate so much to waste food. I cried. and I ate a whole bag of Cheetos.

Guess this is someone telling the boys they need to go vegetarian!?!? Ha ha, like that will happen. But they will be eating meatless dinners until we can afford to go to the big warehouse store and get more. And I might just take my own sweet time getting there.


We watched the Nativity Story again last night. I love this movie. I don’t care if its not ‘scripturally sound’ I love it. I wrote a post about here, and my sentiments are still the same:

WE saw The Nativity Story this holiday season.  The part that struck a chord in my heart was when the angel told Mary she was to bring forth a child named Jesus and when the angel of the Lord told Joseph, Do not be afraid, for what is happening to Mary is God’s will (my paraphrase, of course)It hit me, they both knew and they were the only ones who knew the baby Mary was carrying was something special, for all the nations, was from God. Can you imagine, no one in the world was for them, she could of been stoned and they together knew. They had this secret, this crazy charge God had given them.
That knowledge had to help form a bond between them knowing they had to cling together for encouragment and love and support.
Could they have really known the impact early on? Did they just obey their God that easy? It’s pretty amazing to me.

Compare this: God literally tells Mary and Joseph to have this baby that He will be special and they obey. Today: millions of women knowingly kill their unborn children, not ever getting to know how special their child could have been…Lord, Undo Me, put away my flesh and bone!

James 1:19-27 Р19 {This}  you  know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow  to speak {and} slow  to anger; 20 for the  anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. 21 Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and {all} that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. 22 But  prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.


I love this post by Kevin, it’s been too long since he has posted a serious thought-provoking and great read. (Wait, is it April Fools Day?)


That is a wrap, blessings, Kristina

Ponder on this for while, then leave a comment:

Deut 19:15 One witness is not enough to convict a man accused of any crime or offense he may have committed. A matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.

    16 If a malicious witness takes the stand to accuse a man of a crime, 17 the two men involved in the dispute must stand in the presence of the LORD before the priests and the judges who are in office at the time. 18 The judges must make a thorough investigation, and if the witness proves to be a liar, giving false testimony against his brother, 19 then do to him as he intended to do to his brother. You must purge the evil from among you. 20 The rest of the people will hear of this and be afraid, and never again will such an evil thing be done among you. 21 Show no pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
