Now our Savior Jesus Christ is the vine and we are the
branches, so you may ask what is this fruit? The answer
is found in the Book of Galatians, for it is written; THE FRUIT
OF THE SPIRIT IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE,
KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS
AND SELF CONTROL. AGAINST SUCH THINGS THERE IS
NO LAW. (GALATIANS 5:22-23 )
I subscribe to God's Minute online and receive a daily devotional. This was from today's email. Interesting, because this was my DD's memory verse last week for school....she really struggled to remember the words in order, but with lots of practice she had it and got 100% on her memory verse on Friday.
Had a wonderful weekend. Shopping with mom on Saturday. Drank lots of water & didn't do as poorly as I could have at lunch. Went to Olive Garden & had salad and the Chicken Castellina - chicken, mushrooms & artichokes in a smoked cheese/tomato cream sauce. "Whole wheat" linguine (who knows if this was really whole wheat?) Skipped dessert & the bread sticks. Had a wonderful time visiting with mom. Went to Cost Plus World market & picked up a "Turtle" flavored coffee - choc. & caramel. and the Davinci SF white chocolate (had used up my previous bottle) - it's a beautifully dreary fall morning here in Colorado-- I do love an occassional overcast, foggy, drizzly cool morning. So hot coffee will soon be becoming the order of the day!
Also went to the Wild Oats Market (a local health food market) and picked up some bulk whole wheat & whole wheat pastry flour. Mom has a great french bread recipe & I think I'm going to try making some with the pastry flour. Yum. I've also been wanting to try to make a whole wheat kraut burger. Also got a buttermilk whole wheat pancake/waffle mix and a couple different whole wheat couscous--haven't tried that yet, so it will be something new. Also found a whole wheat graham cracker.
Had a picnic yesterday & kept it pretty beachy, except for the 1/2 of a oatmeal raisin cookie (my absolute favorite). It was a beautiful day & truly enjoyed everyone's company.
I've got to get online today & register for the Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure on Oct. 2. We usually do the 1 mile family walk. I don't think MIL will be able to do much more than that. Last year she did the 5K walk, but she just doesn't have the energy for that right now. I'll be making up pictures of her "In Celebration of...." and her mother "In Memory of..." to wear on our shirts.
B: WW tortilla breakfast burrito w/ eggs, green chilis & onion, a little lf cheese

L: Salad w/ a little turkey, cukes, tomatoes, etc.

Hope everyone had a great weekend & is having a beachy Monday!
