How are those New Year Resolutions Working for Ya'll?

What is today..oh yeah, the 12th. Already the 12th! And, the answer for me is "no". My same resolution that I've had for the past 15 years is apparently going to be the same one for next year! Every night I pray that I'll be strong the next day to stick with eating smart and the very next day, I find some reason to indulge to get me off track. Why? Grhhhh! How frustrating!

But...let me tell you folks up north of here that don't get this...

Meet Blue Bell.. a little bit of Heaven. This is my indulgence. Once upon a time in a not too far away town called Brenham, Texas, there was once a little creamery started in 1907. They make the best ice cream on this planet! And any and every flavor you could imagine.

You can't imagine how this stuff helps my indigestion! Really!...

Well, tonight at Bible Study (by the way, we had a great study...again!) we were reading in Ephesians and verse 10 in Chapter 2 gives me great comfort. "For we are His workmanship". I am God's work of art. Now, to me, I am a work in progress but this verse is giving me new hope. I have got to have more respect for myself to keep on trying. Tomorrow is the 13th. A good day to start eating smart.
Happy Trails...


  1. Hahahaha! Don't feel bad, Berte.....I feel your pain...I just finished off the half gallon of Blue Bell Moo-llenium Crunch! No words can describe how good it is.....sigh.....

  2. We're only 2 weeks into the New Year, still plenty of time to make those resolutions work for us! I'm working my way through a package of cookies this evening...

    I hope you've had a good day!!

    By the way, I keep forgetting to tell you how much I love the music playing on your blog!!

  3. Don'cha' love a good bible study group? I get together with my group---7 of us guys---on Tuesday mornings for some discussion and readings. It means a lot.

    I like ice cream but I guess my indulgences tend toward fried foods. Ha.
