Our Christmas Celebration

Christmas with big kids is a lot different than Christmas with young children. Usually they know what they are getting because if you don't ask them what they want, they won't want it. Heather (age 21) only wanted help with her bills and rent for January. Ryan (age 17) wanted dad to build him a gaming PC. Johnathan  (age 17) was the only one who didn't know what he was getting but he is very happy with the Kinect we bought him to go with his Xbox360, especially the voice-activated controller. Since we're a blended family, we didn't even have the "opening of the gifts" until around 1pm on Christmas. Johnathan spent the previous couple of days at his mom's house. Heather, home from college, has descended on the guest room and turned it into the normal hurricane-hit clothing store. She tried to spend some time with her biological father, but she ended up coming back over here early because they just don't get along. Ryan spent just two nights over there, then came back here, but decided to spend a couple hours over there on Christmas morning. We had a nice late afternoon Christmas ham dinner, all five of us together and no one even argued. I guess the most touching part of Christmas, for me, was the Christmas eve candlelight service at church. My daughter sat with my husband and me, but Ryan sat with his girlfriend's family. All in all, a nice, quiet, drama-free holiday. I told them Christmas will probably be a bit boring around here until they start getting married and bringing grandchildren over here. Heather has since told me I'm not allowed to talk about grandchildren yet because it gave her a nightmare.

Does Online Dating Really Work?

Online dating. The very phrase terrifies some people. On the other hand, I can tell you that online dating can be wildly successful. My husband and I met online through a dating website many years ago. I didn't have the resources to pay for babysitters as a single mom. However, I did have an internet connection and the courage to fill out the dating information forms. We've been married since June of 2001 and are still deliriously happy together.

Over the years, online dating has become more finely tuned and there are websites that are more targeted in the types of people they attract. ChristianCrush.com is a wonderful online database site made just for singles interested in Christian dating. They offer a free profile search, dating articles, and even marriage articles. One of the best parts of this website is that they use video profiles. There is also a personality assessment in every profile. They are one of the few Christian dating sites privately owned and operated by committed Christians. In fact, it was founded and developed by a licensed psychologist with a Doctorate degree. If you are looking for potential Christian dating partners, you should check out ChristianCrush.com today!

Answered Prayers

I've often heard that God answers prayers in one of three ways...Yes, No, or Wait. While wading through some old posts in a nostalgic sort of way, I found THIS POST from just one year ago and it really made me smile. Looking back over the past year, God not only answered my prayer, He has overwhelmed me with blog blessings beyond what I dreamed. There are thousands of you and I appreciate every single one of you. I pray that in the coming year, God blesses you too. Thank you for reading my blog!

Congratulations to Another Winner

One US winner will receive two weeks of the
Zone 1-2-3 Foods Standard Program,
a value of $74.50!
 I've been sampling some of these delicious foods over the past few days. They taste so good, are loaded with protein, are low in fats and cholesterol, and best of all the foods keep you from feeling hungry between meals. That's always been the worst part of dieting but there is a science behind these foods that takes care of that. There are scrumptious cinnamon buns, breads, pretzels, cookies, pasta, flat breads and more!  
 The Zone 123 Program comes with a book that tells you everything you need to know to succeed on this weight loss program. Dr. Barry Sears is one of the world's leading authorities on the hormonal effects of diet. His book The Zone was a #1 New York Times best-seller and has been translated into over 20 languages.
 No one likes a diet that feels like a diet. Starving yourself is not the answer. Choosing the right foods and making long-term little changes is the right way to lose weight. With the Zone 123 Program you can lose the weight while eating delicious foods! It's as easy as 123!
To enter, just fill out the Rafflecopter form below. You must be a new customer to the Zone Diet, be at least 18 years old, and have a US address (no PO boxes, please). Good luck!

Seneca Farms Oatmeal - Review

Seneca Farms Oatmeal is a fabulous solution to healthy, delicious snacks and breakfast. Everyone knows oatmeal is an important part of a well-balanced food diet. I'm so happy that Seneca Farms has created their oatmeal. It's pre-made, pre-portioned, and needs no milk or water added. All I had to do was pull the top back and pop it in my microwave for 45 seconds. As I stirred it after warming, I could see and smell the delicious chunks of added fruit.
The first one I tried is the Cranberry Apple. I was afraid it might be bitter, but it was so good. Seneca Farms Oatmeal is an excellent source of Vitamin C, plus it has no trans fat or cholesterol, so it fits perfectly into my diet program. Since they are fully cooked they are a perfect take-along food for people on the go.
The Maple and Brown Sugar was absolutely amazing. It's definitely my favorite flavor so far, but I'm anxious now to try their Apple Cinnamon and Vanilla Peach flavors too. I've always loved oatmeal and I really love the taste and consistency of Seneca Farms Oatmeal.
Would you like to win two packs of Seneca Farms Oatmeal? Just fill out the Rafflecopter form below by December 31, 2011 at midnight and you'll be entered to win! Must be at least 18 years old, be a Planet Weidknecht follower, and have a US address. One winner takes all! Good luck!
