Thank you for all the amazing comments and tons of email you have sent me about yesterday's post. Clearly the majority of us struggle with worry. I hope we can all work together on giving that worry over to God. I like to have a mental picture of packing it all in a box and just putting it in His big hands.
I just feel a load lifted already!
skinnytaste.com. It has great recipes for low points. I'm making these great chicken roll ups tonight and I'm making sauteed brussel sprouts. These are so good. I would never think to shred brussel sprouts. I LOVE roasted brussel sprouts but these are SO good too! And just 1 point for a ton.
AND I received this awesome testimony from Rachel Pennington about Compassion:
My name is Rachel and I have sponsored a child from Compassion for 3 years. I actually started following your blog right after Harper was born. I saw something on your blog that led me to Compassion. After I got on the site and began looking at the pictures of the children, I told myself that if there was a child named Grace or Gracie that I was going to become that child's sponsor. Not even two pages later I found the child. Her name is Gracia Hernandez. The reason I chose to sponsor this child was because I wanted to do something in memory of my precious Gracie. You see, my second child, was born on Jan.14,2008. She was 9 weeks early. She had to be delivered by emergency c-section because I had developed Help Syndrome. Right before she was delivered my doctor was very reassuring and told us after several weeks in the NICU things should be okay. Little did we know that our lives where about to change forever. As soon as Gracie was born the doctors knew something wasn't right. After some testing, they confirmed that she had a genetic disorder called Trisomy 13, which is fatal. Our sweet Gracie lived for 13 days before entering heaven. So, one of my prayers has been that our family could touch another child's life because of our precious Gracie's life. I have to say I love receiving mail from this child and knowing that I am making a difference in this child's life as well as her family.
