Today is Saturday, the day after Black Friday. Lots of money spent yesterday, I am glad I was not one of them. We celebrated Thanksgiving on Thursday . It was so great and I had lots to be thankful for. Our son came up to share in the many blessing passed. We had a good time. Yesterday ,he took over cooking the stuffing that was not made on Thanksgiving day. He knocked it out of the park. 🙂 He was so pleased that it came out so well. He is a pretty good cook but he never made stuffing from scratch. I helped a little but he followed the instructions well. You know ,he had to take some left overs home for the next day. We just finished eating the rest tonight for dinner. Before I forget let me tell you that I made a delicious German Chocolate Cake, it was for my husband and son birthdays. I used to bake them both a cake for their birthdays. Since the cancer I have notÂ baked, therefore I decided to surprise them both. They were floored, especially our son. They really enjoyed it , just as much as I enjoyed making it. I think maybe one fourth of the cake is left. 🙂
I know everyone is wondering how I am doing, I am doing good. I have a follow up with the doctor on Monday to see how the treatment pills are working. Other than that I am getting around very well. I want to thank everyone for their many prayers. We all know that prayer works, I truly believe that with strong faith and beliefÂ in the Lord all things are possible. As you all know my faith is very strong. Everyday I give him many, many thanks. We have to remain centered with the Lord at all times. I am so thankful for His many blessing . I accept HisÂ blessing with praise .
Well the weather is getting cold here , it’s time to get out the heavy clothing. I like this time of year because you can dress in layers. Some people don’t like the snow and shoveling . When I was a child , I loved toÂ shovel the snow. Getting older now so the things that I did as a child I cannot do much anymore, not saying I won’t try. 🙂
I will close now and try to get some rest. Remember to those who canÂ go to their place of worship tomorrow. Love to all.
Here is the scripture for today. (Psalm 117:1-2) Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol him, all you people. For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Good day Sis.
Blessing to you and the family.
You all sure had a good Thanksgiving, the food and chocolate cake made me hungry:-)
Weather is getting colder everywhere, we are getting a lot of rain on the East but central ON is sure getting their share of the snow, so glad I’m not living there:-) It will all be here soon.
Sis. I finally retired from teaching exercise classes, I have been doing this on and off since 1985, for all those who say why, it’s very simple body and mind is saying enough and my interest is taken another direction, I will be volunteering with Capitol Health to promote more healthy choices for our people.
You will still see me in the gyms, out walking and running, that will never change:-)
Instructing classes was very motivating for me but now I need to be for myself, maintaining great health should be a priority, the choices we make should be the best we can give. Maybe I’ll become a motivational speaker for living healthy:-)) We Simmonds women always making a wave. LOL.
*May I add this comes from all the strong women black women around us. You know who you are! You never give up even when it effects your health, your faith is strong in the Lord and your Mind is right with the Lord. You give Thanks even when there is bad and you walk with your head high even when someone done you wrong.
Sis. You gave me this book ” God’s words of life for Women of Color”. I try to read something ever chance I get and it makes my day.
I leave you and all our women (Sistahs) of color this verse today:
We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10.
God bless you and keep you safe and in good health.
Love always, Sis. Juliette
