I just got a new job! Last year I taught at a Montessori preschool, but left there for personal reasons after my contract was up in June. I have now been hired as a permanent sub for a Lutheran preschool within walking distance of my home! I just came back from my first day of training there and I LOVE it!!! Thanks be to God!

Well -- best wishes to all for a great October 2011. It is the time of year when I think that if I could only get my Christmas shopping out of the way before the Advent Fast begins (November 15), I would really be prepared to enter into the spiritual contemplation of the season (not that I have ever managed to do that). As someone once said " The trouble with Christmas is that it comes to close to the Holidays!"

The past year has been a positive new chapter for me. It's been a lot of realizing to appreciate what I have, where I am, and the family I've been given. I have so much to be grateful for. I had a vision for my life and was always unhappy it wasn't happening. I wanted a lot of kids. I only got 3. (6 in heaven too!) I wanted a perfect husband. HA! (At least he got stuck with me too!:) I wanted a certain kind of church. God has blessed us in a lovely community that's not what I what I envisioned. (maybe what I NEEDED?). My quest for beetter health seems to have hope now that I have a long term plan for healthy living. Now if I could just fix my job....

Well - a year has passed since my last post on this thread. There have been several huge changes in my life - a new grandson, a new job, and a new diet that seems to be working for now!

So as you can see there are many more demands on my time - so I can't be as active on Spark as I used to be.

How has the year been for the rest of you?

God bless,

I get hungry, too. I think perhaps it is in part because we have stretched out our stomachs quite a bit. I have hope that smaller portions will shrink both my eyes and my stomach.

May God help us!

Well, its back to counting my calories, tracking my food, and trying to drink all my water, after wandering into other diets and eating styles. There is so much information out there about how to eat, and most of it is contradictory. How frustrating. And I just keep gaining weight. I have a doctor appointment scheduled this month, but I'm not very hopeful. He'll just tell me to eat less and exercise more. I do take long walks with the dog and as to eating less -- I get hungry. Why does my body get hungry when I'm so fat? Why do I like food so much?

Yes -- that is a great way to begin the week. Our priest is just coming back from a deanery meeting in the twin cities, or I think we would have had liturgy as well. Tonight, though, we will have an Akathist to the Theotokos, Nurturer of Children when we will pray for all the children of our parish, plus all the names of other children that people submit.

A great way to start my favorite month: Divine Liturgy for the feast of the protection of the Theotokos this morning. Just lovely. I love early morning liturgies: the candle light, when it's dark outside. A great way to start the day. Now it's October, it's really fall.
