Christmas Musings...

Amid the hustle and bustle of shopping and planning, surrounded by Santas, trees, tinsel, and lights, I always get captivated by the excitement of Christmas.  I like the images of Santa’s sleigh gliding across the moon, I like Rudolph, and I like all the festive colors and glitter…I like it all.   

I love families getting together, people being nicer to each other, wide-eyed, eager children, strangers telling each other “Merry Christmas.”  I truly do love the season, the Christmas spirit! 

I also remember that not everyone loves Christmas.  For some, it’s a stark reminder that someone is missing, or perhaps the stress of it all makes the season not enjoyable.  I know there is profound heartache in this world and holidays can exacerbate the misery.  If you are one of the hurting souls of Christmas, I pray for peace in your heart, and joy as you face the New Year.  And I mean that from deepest depth of my heart. 

In the stark commercialization of Christmas…the “X-mas” of it all…I can feel grieved and a bit guilty getting caught up in the jingle of sleigh bells and reindeer…because Christmas should be about Christ, not Santa!  Right?   So every year, as I shopped among the ornaments and bargains, I would stop and apologize to Jesus for all that Christmas has become.

For years, I have not had a Santa in my house.   He was just quietly removed and replaced with nativity scenes and pretty decorations.  I don’t post Santa related memes and things on social media.   (And last year, for the first time in my life, I didn’t even have a tree, or any decorations.)

A few days ago…in the middle of the Walmart Christmas aisles, I softly said, “Thank You, Jesus.  Thank You for the manger, for the Cross, for your life, for salvation; thank You, Lord, for everything.”   I was unashamed as a tear trickled down my face; I was overwhelmingly grateful.  But I didn’t feel guilty.  I was reminded that those of us who love Jesus celebrate His birth, life, death, and resurrection all through the year. 

He wasn’t born on December 25, and people who don’t even believe in Jesus also celebrate Christmas.  The way Christians get involved with the food, over-spending for the mandatory gift-giving, and being sure that the kids have way too many toys and gadgets to have any appreciation for all they have, Christmas isn’t about Jesus…it’s about us.   The way we live our daily lives?  That’s about Jesus. 

It’s a good thing to pause often during the season and thank Jesus for all He has done, and all that He is.   And we should carry that thankfulness and Christmas spirit (or more exactly the Holy Spirit) with us every day of our lives.

I wonder if a Santa Claus in my house or on my Facebook is a terrible thing…what do you thik?


Monday Musings...

Scene along the Natchez Trace Parkway somewhere in Tennessee...I think!
An Uncomfortable Stand…and it’s not my aching knee:
Biblical beliefs are very unpopular these days.  People who do not believe in the authority of the Bible are a lot louder than the ones who do.   When a person (or heaven forbid a politician) stands up for what the Bible says, it can get ugly.   Really ugly.    

Peculiar People:
I am peculiar (1 Peter 2:9).  I hope and pray that if ever put in a position to defend my beliefs, I am studied up and strong enough to stand my uncomfortable stand.

The Done Deal:
Whether one believes it or not, the Word of God is true and is forever settled in Heaven.  (Psalm 119:89)  

What They’re Not Saying:
I don’t think people normally come out and say, “I know what the Bible says, but this is what I think.”  But that’s what they do.  They do not understand that God, Himself, chose the words of the Bible says, and the words therein are living, powerful and active, sharper than a double-edged sword, and judges the thoughts and intentions of the heart.  (Hebrews 4:12)

It’s Our Business:
Now more than ever Christians need to know what the Word of God says.
And we need to be about the Father’s business.

Election Eve:
It’s been a horrendous one, this campaign season for Alabama Senator.   It’s a case where we must listen with eyes wide open, see what’s behind the words.  We can’t give into the weariness that the enemy would toss our way.  And we need to pray…a lot.  Then pray some more.  This election is important, and we should care.   I know this world is not our home, but we must live in it, and we simply must do all we can to stand up for what is right, including prayerfully choosing our candidates…prayerfully being the key word…and vote.  Christians should vote. 

The Day in Which We Live:
We are entering an age where God is giving us, the praying, believing Christians, back the land.  When someone tells you America is going to Hell in a handbasket, don’t you believe it!  Those who are on the fence, compromising what the Word says to fit their own views and actions will find themselves on the outside looking in, not partaking in the blessings God has for His people who seek His face…not because we deserve it, but because He loves us…and we are crying out for Him and to Him, asking for His will instead our own agenda. 

And that, my friends are my Monday Musings!  
I hope your day is a great one, and your week even greater!


Finding Faith in a Weary World

Huntsville Botanical Garden
What does a Christian do when faith is hard to find? World injustices or the evil days in which we live can make it harder to believe Christ is on the throne and in control. Maybe your pain is much closer to home, a divorce, a financial disaster, the death of a loved one for whom you diligently prayed over.

When we walk through life seasons that are heartbreakingly painful, we have to make the conscious choice to believe what the Word of God says. In the bad times, clinging to the scriptures is crucial. It is just as important in the good times, but when we are brokenhearted, often the last thing we want to do is pray.  We may open the Bible only to find the words bouncing off our eyeballs and into the abyss.  Find one scripture that speaks to you and believe it, hold on to it; it is your lifeline.

Fear plays a big part in our moods and emotions. Fear doesn’t always creep in, often it walks up and slap us, stopping us dead in our tracks. We can’t let these days filled with divisiveness, threats of North Korea bombs, war, or people doing unspeakable evil to each other cause us to forget that God already knew about such things. He said there would be wars and rumors of wars, nations rising against nations, famines and earthquakes in various places, and he warned us that because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. But He also told us not to be afraid.

Not being afraid isn’t easy, but the more we learn to put our trust in Him, the clearer things become. When we are clearly thinking, we can see things for what they are. We aren’t fighting people…flesh and blood…we are fighting satan and his evil crew, and they use people as tools to kill, steal, and destroy.


I saw this on Facebook: 
Fear does not stop death, it stops life.

The Bible tells us repeatedly, “Don’t fear.” But how do we do that when faith is slipping, and there are real threats surrounding us? How do we trust Him?

The answer is relationship. When we draw near to Him, he draws near to us. The closer we are to our Source of life, the more we trust Him. The more we trust Him, the less fear we have, and we are able to love Him with our whole hearts. The more love and less fear we have, the more we are willing to do the things we are commanded to do for the kingdom of God:

Love our neighbor as ourselves
Feed the hungry
Care for the orphans and widows
Proclaim the good news of Christ


We know life isn't easy, and we don't always understand our heartaches. But God promised to save us, to be our peace, to comfort us, and to hold us in His hand.   We have to not only read the words written in the pages of the Bible, we must believe them with our entire being.

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
and His ears are attentive to their cry

The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
He delivers them from all their troubles

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the Lord delivers him from them all
(Psalm 34)

Don’t focus on the problem. 
Focus on the Solution. 
His name is Jesus.


Dear Youth: What I Wish I'd Known

If ever I were to speak to our youth today, I would say, “If you believe you are anything less than what God created you to be because of the way you look, your size, your grades, or your history (no matter what it is), then you are believing LIES straight from the pits of hell.  Any thoughts you have regarding yourself that make you believe you are different, and therefore less worthy, are not true, no matter what you have done or what has happened to you.

I would tell them that drugs will only exacerbate those feelings, and inhibit their decision-making abilities, and that decisions made under the influence are life-altering. 

I would tell them that the drug to NOT start with is nicotine.

With tears in my eyes I would tell them that they are fearfully and wonderfully made; that God had a plan for them before time, and no matter what mistakes they may have already made, God still has a plan.   I would tell them about freedom, and how they don’t have to live their lives under the bondage of lies making them believe that they need drugs or alcohol or food to dull the pain, and that sex does not equal love. 

I would tell them that Jesus does, indeed, love them, just as they are, and He really does make a difference. 

Some wouldn’t listen.
Some would.

If you are reading this and feel unworthy of love,
I will tell you the very same thing.
And food can also be a drug…
But you can be a winner.
Christ loves you.

Racism: Let's Not Talk About It

A battle is raging, and it is fierce…but as long as we continue to think we are fighting flesh and blood, we will never have a resolution.

Discussing racism is dangerous territory.  Emotions run high, and most everyone feels as if they have been just as mistreated as the next person.  Disagreement comes early in the conversation, and not long after, the name-calling begins.   Neither side agrees on exactly what racism is.  But it is rampant, and it affects everyone.  So many Christians don’t talk about it, at least not for very long.

Gatlinburg Overpass
Racism is much more complex than just the way people are treated, and people want to keep the problem white vs black.  While it is true that both sides have room to grow, to change, to understand, to concede, and to forgive, those things do not come from a behavior change, but a heart change.  The tactic of the devil in this thing called racism is to get our eyes on each other instead of God because he knows the only way to conquer the misconceptions about what is truly going on is by the revelation of Christ in the hearts of His people.  A lack of knowledge will kill us. 

The need is so very great for Christians to focus on Jesus and not be so attuned to the world around them.  We cannot afford to keep looking to the left and to the right.  Now, more than ever, we need to seek His face. 

When You said, “Seek My face,”
My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
Psalm 27:8

When we come together seeking His face and not outside acceptance, we will find that vengeance really is His and the battle belongs to Him.  Justice poured out from a righteous God is infinitely better than any worldly imitation of justice.   Counterfeit justice is all the world can give.   When we come together as one body, putting God first in our lives, the blessings that follow are far beyond social justice…it is supernatural justice!  And believe me, once mercy and grace is received, we want justice!

If we heed Jesus’s commandment to love one another as He loves us, lives will be transformed.  We can’t continue to let how we feel drown out the voice of the Father who is no respecter of persons.  
  • If there is hate and mistrust against a brother or sister in Christ, skin color is not the issue, the heart is.
  • If feelings are hurt, skin color is not the issue, the heart is.
  • If unforgiveness is in the heart, skin color is not the issue…it’s the heart.
  • If lies are believed about who you are, or who someone else is, skin color is not the issue! 
Who can change hearts?   God.  

Unfair is unfair.
A hurt is a hurt.
Discrimination is wrong.
An injustice is an injustice;
It doesn’t matter what body God placed you in. 
And rest assured, God does not like injustice. 

Until God’s people realize the origin of racism, we will never put out the spreading flames or stop the destruction.  It is a tactic of the one who kills, steals, and destroys, and when we try to fix the issue by keeping it in the ugly box of flesh and blood, we are helping him.

If we really want to stamp out racism for good, we must start with PRAYER.  Then we must continue with PRAYER; and more PRAYER.

You know what happens with much prayer?  Repentant hearts.   What comes from repentant hearts?  Relationship with our Heavenly Father.   When we have true relationship with the Father, it will spill over into the rest of our lives and our relationships with our brothers and sisters.  Then it will spill out of the church and into the world.  A coming together of the Children of God!   The church should have always shown the world how to love each other.  But we aren't.  We're showing the world more of what they have.

The only way to stand up to racism is on our knees.  Our altars need to full of people without labels calling out for Truth so that we see each other as God sees us, not as how some other human being is telling us we should see each other.  I wish churches would begin having old fashioned prayer meetings, with people who are willing to fast and pray the price for victory.  A meeting of people who have the sole purpose of praying God's will, a change in hearts, unity, love, and change in the body of Christ.  A meeting for prayer, not discussion, without loud music, but with scripture reading.  Sadly, too people do not like to attend prayer meetings, but they do like to talk, and the devil really likes that in us.  

Discussions about racism = argument.
God's Truth in any situation = healing, light, love, peace.
The choice is ours:  Talk about it or pray about it.

So let’s not talk about racism.  
Well, not until we’ve come together for much prayer.

Two Cent Tuesday

I imagine satan and a few of his imps standing around looking at little Charlie Darwin playing with his stuffed sock monkey.   Satan says to his imps, “I bet I can make young Charlie here believe he came from an ape.”    “You’re on!” the imps reply.  Satan won.  Sadly.  Not only did he convince Charles Darwin, he has deceived many, and mainstream media has been more than willing to help him.

The antichrist?
Hopefully, I’ve made no secret that I am a Believer.   A Christian.   I believe in Jesus Christ, who died for my sins and who is my salvation.   I am one in the class of people who, according to main-stream media, it is permissible to “bully,” a word that gets a lot of attention these days.  If you harass a Christian, you are not being a bully, it appears.   I wonder…could mainstream media be the antichrist?   Look at how many people are deceived by their pollution.  (That is a rhetorical question only...I read Revelation.)

In order to truly, totally, completely forgive someone, you can’t put conditions or demands on their behavior in order for them to be back in your good graces.   It ain’t an easy thing to do when you’ve been hurt.  Or angered.  Or embarrassed.  You have to accept that they got away with hurting you, and let God handle it the way He sees fit.

·       It is “would’ve,” the contraction for “would have;” it is not “would of,” or “could of.”  When we say it, though (especially in the south), it does sound like “of” instead of “’ve.”   
·       Reality TV is the worst culprit of saying “I” when they should use “me.”   In fact, it’s incorrect usage is so commonplace that when “I” is used correctly, people think you’re using bad grammar.   I’ve been known to talk to the TV…they ignore me.  Oh, wait.   “Ain’t” ain’t grammatically correct. 

Is there a fashion commentator somewhere, on some mountaintop, perhaps, who decides the current season's fashion?  Do magazines and designers wait with baited breath for this guru to declare, with his arm lifted and his index finger extended, "This summer, you shall wear polka dots on your shirts and stripes on your skirts!   You shall wear pants that make even the best of bodies look oddly shaped!   You shall wear ugly shoes…no!  Extremely ugly shoes with your stripes and polka dots and ill-fitting britches!”   OK, it’s a little far-fetched to think a fashion pundit would say “britches.”   But who decides the present “fashion?”

My coworkers think I’m scary because I understand the Facebook status of a local wanted individual (wanted as in hunted by “the law.”), “I may be schizophrenic, but at least I have each other, and when I am alone I am together.”  I thought it was a great status; I now think they are looking at us with worried expressions.   Should I add “paranoid” to that status?

Monday Musings: The Countless Edition

Image from
  • Countless are the times I said things I wish I hadn’t.  
  • Countless are the comments I didn’t type, and I’m glad I didn’t.   Ah, but countless are the ones I did type.  Nobody has all the answers; thinking you do might make you look a little trollish.   There comes a time when we need to learn when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em…comments and comebacks, that is…not the Gambler’s cards.
  • The countless times I’ve thought of just what to say…after the fact.   It’s usually when I’m holding on to some unforgiveness, and having conversations with the offender in my head.   Forgiveness is always better than one-sided conversations. 
  • Countless times I’ve laid down a grudge only to pick it back up because of something said or done that reminds me that perhaps I didn’t forgive as fully as I thought. 
  • Oh, the countless fat grams, calories, and carbs I’ve counted.   Countless more are all the ones I ate.
  • Countless blessings in my life…some I recognize daily, others I take for granted.   For those I take for granted, God forgive me.

Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another,
And the Lord listened and heard them;
So a book of remembrance was written before Him
And who meditate on His name
Malachi 3:16

Will the Lord write a book of remembrance 
on what I speak about today?  
Lord, help me be a positive voice 
in a dark and negative world.

What Are You Fighting With?

(or...With what are you fighting?)

This is the kind of post some folks love to hate.

For eight years, liberals screamed that Bush had destroyed America.  The next eight years, conservatives blamed Obama and the democrats.  The sad fact is that we have all had a hand in the self-destruction of our country.  And now, a year after the last presidential election, people are still losing their minds over Donald Trump...Christians included.   Don't they read the Bible and know that God said don't do that?

Who’s in Charge?
The Bible is no longer studied; its passages no longer memorized.   Even if one doesn't believe it, the Bible is, indeed, the Word of God.   It is our sword, our protection in the fight for our lives.   Without its truths internalized in our hearts, is it any wonder that Americans are deceived?   America largely doesn’t want to include God.  Period.

Electronic Babysitters:
Years ago, it was Atari that commanded the attention of America’s children.   Now, it’s a multitude of handheld devices, the internet – often uncensored and unsupervised – where our children spend countless hours; cell phones, and brutal, bloody, desensitizing violent “shoot ‘em up” video games that not only have the children addicted, but the parents as well.  No wonder we have children who shoot and kill.  

It is not the guns…it’s the lack of interaction with God-fearing, Bible-believing, parents who commit to raising children in a Godly manner.   It’s the lack of fathers and mothers working together (whether in the same home or not)…there is no excuse!  If you do not have contact with your little children:   Straighten up, act right, get help if you need it, and be a parent!   But I digress.  Sort of.

These days, it seems the only thing that gets undivided attention is a text message or a video game.   Watch young parents in public…their children don’t have their attention.   A cell phone does!  And why do we feel that if a phone rings, it MUST be answered?!  

We’ve got a nation too full of people dependent upon the government for their livelihood.  Too many children know only one parent.  Churches are divided, deceived, and confused, teaching a watching world that they don’t really have any standard by which to live.  Why?   Because the Bible has lost its authority in America, in the church, in the hearts of people. 
  • When is the last time you complained about our nation, our president, your spouse, the high costs of gas? 
  • When is the last time you wasted an hour (or two or three) in front of the computer?
  • When is the last time you spent an hour on your cell phone gossiping?
  • When is the last time you spent an hour in prayer?
  • When is the last time you spent an hour in prayer seeking His face, His will over your own plans?
  • When is the last time you spent an hour reading your Bible?
When is the last time you memorized a Bible Passage?   Spent half an hour reading the Word?  Spent half an hour in quiet (or loud) prayer?

Tuesday's Top Ten: The "Just Don't" List

  1. Don’t leave conservative comments on liberal sites.  They don’t like that.   They write things in response that you won’t like, vulgar, classless things.   They want things for you that are worse than death.
  2. Don’t respond to people who just want to rile you.   I promise, you are getting more revenge by not giving them a reaction than anything you could say.
  3. If you need to vent…vent.   Do it in your car, tell it to God, say it to your best friend.   But don’t hold it in.  It may cause your eyeballs to pop out.   You don’t want that, do you?
  4. If your good friend needs to vent, let them.  Don’t keep cutting in with your own great advice (looking in the mirror as I type).  If they are venting about their loved one, don’t ever say anything negative about that person!   Just listen.
  5. Don’t tell secrets you’ve promised not to tell.
  6. Don’t keep secrets that will harm someone else.  
  7. Don’t be contradictory.   (I know.   I read the above two lines as I wrote them.) 
  8. Don’t spend your life not liking yourself.   If you’ve done terrible things in your past, ask God to forgive you, and then forgive yourself.   It doesn’t matter what you’ve done…it really is okay to forgive yourself, even if someone else doesn’t.  Pray for that person.  Learn to like you.
  9. Never hold unforgiveness in your heart.  God has great rewards for those who have suffered.   It’s called justice, and it’s mentioned over 500 times in the bible.   Justice and righteousness are the foundation of God’s throne.   Forgive that person who hurt you because God’s compensation for what you’ve been through outweighs the hurt you’ve suffered.  Only He can repay like that.
  10. Never think that someone got away with hurting you.  Even if it devastated your life as you knew and loved it, and they seem to be prospering from it.   God is not mocked, what we sow, that’s what we will reap.   The reaping won’t be pretty, either.  Don’t miss your compensation by holding on to unforgiveness.

Thursday’s Thoughts: The “For Christians” Edition

Everyone has heard the old maxim, “If you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem.”   The United States of America is perilously close to being un-united, and it’s an unfortunate truth that Christians are part of the problem.

Don’t click the X just yet.

We have church leaders who support a world view instead of a Biblical one.   Morals are hard to find, deception is rampant, and we too often stand idly by, letting the enemy steal, kill and destroy what is rightfully ours!   It’s a dark, dark world, my friends, we cannot afford to become accustomed to the darkness!

Want revival?
Start with yourself.

Until Christians come together, agreeing in prayer, asking for God’s will over our own wills, wants, and traditions, we will not see revival.   That means we all have to get along:  the Church of Christ with the Pentecostals, the Charismatics with the Baptists, the Methodists with the interdenominational believers.  It’s not our jobs to debate the rights and wrongs wearing of pants, dancing, music in the church, or any religious tradition with a brother or sister in Christ.  

If we all get into our God-appointed positions, armed with the word of God, the Bible...our Sword...and prayerfully come together praying God’s will in America, we will see revival as we have never seen it before.   And you just may begin to see that what you thought was important isn’t, and what you brushed over as unimportant is, indeed, important.     

You may be part of the problem if:
  1. You are not praying for the leaders of our country.   That does not mean praying that they will come around to your way of thinking.  No, that means praying “Thy kingdom come, THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH as it is in Heaven"  Praying for our leaders to be in God’s will. (Matt. 6:10)
  2. You bash the President of the United States, then spout Bible verses: Blessings and cursing, this ought not to be!  (James 3:8-10)  Pray for our leaders.
  3. You bash Congress, your local officials, or your next door neighbor.
  4. You still think this is a war between conservatives and liberals and not spiritual warfare.
  5. You post on social networking sites disrespectful, touched up photos of the president, other leaders, celebrities, or anyone else, making it appear they are doing things they are not.   
  6. You use your words carelessly in anything what you say, whether it be politically, about another person, or in your daily life.  We will all give account for every idle word we speak.
  7. The same goes for what you write, anonymously or otherwise.
  8. You don’t vote.
  9. You vote according to party/race/gender without prayerfully seeking the will of God before casting your vote.  
  10.  You let prejudices and biases get in the way of helping others.
Are you ready for some JUSTICE?
People are afraid of Justice. 
Maybe one day I'll tell you all about why we definitely want justice!

Wednesday's Word

God will always help us.  In times of trouble and in mundane of our daily lives, He is our strength, and He is forever available to us.  When we call on Him, He is right there…He was there all along!

He’ll never leave us, and no matter where we go or what we do, He will not stop loving us.   He knows us…but loves us still.   We are His children, there is great joy in recognizing all the benefits of being His child.

Would you like to be free from the snares (fear, depression, oppression) of the world?  Look to things above and not on all the strife surrounding us.  Freedom comes from knowing Him and by no other way.


Monday Musings: The Truth and Integrity Edition

Does integrity still mean anything? 

In a world where everyone is talking, truth gets lost amid the noise and distractions.  Truth is vitally important.   Our continued freedom depends on knowing it, and without it, we are in a very dangerous place!

Do we have a responsibility to fight for truth?   Though it may seem like a small deal, shouldn’t we demand truth even in the simplest of news reporting?   How about in the headlines?   The things we repost and share on Facebook or Twitter?   

What about in our everyday life?   Do we exaggerate a story or share gossip?  Matthew 12:36-37 reminds us that we will give an account for every idle word we speak, our own words will either justify or condemn us. 

Truth is absolute.  It is what it is.  Denying it won’t change it, and it cannot be altered to suit our lifestyle, just as the words of the Bible cannot be rewritten until we have justified our sin. 
If we had known the truth from our government about Islam extremists, would we be in a safer America today?  Would the fifty men and women killed by Omar Mateen in Orlando still be alive today?  I can’t help but think they would be.

The path to a better America has to start somewhere, it may as well be with you.  And me.  Truth and integrity should be important to all of us.   Be kind to someone today.  Don’t repeat gossip, listen more than you talk.  Make Truth a priority in your life.  And say a prayer for the families and friends of Orlando’s slain. 

Monday Musings: The More Better Edition

Sometimes less is better…the older we get, the better our skin looks with less heavy make up.  

Sometimes more is better...there are times when those skirts really are too short.   When walking out of church and a small wind gust exposes your...everything...a few more inches of hem would have definitely been better.   Is that judgmental of me?  Don’t want to be judging others, you know, but I don’t want to see their hineys, either. 

Less social media is better.   Facebook is a colossal time-waster!  (“Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, and revive me in Your way.”  Psalm 119:37)  Some may say blogging is, too.  :::looking around to see who is agreeing with that:::

Speaking of social media…less politics is definitely better!  I'm tired of Alabama politics...and at this point, voters have made up their minds, and they won’t be changing them without some solid evidence.   Is anyone else as tired of politics as I am?   Posts from questionable sites and rants from the people who put stock in those stories…on both side…stop it!   If the story is sensationalized, exaggerated, or fabricated, just stop it!   Liberals and conservatives are equally guilty and equally stubborn. 

Sometimes less government is better.   satan has worked long and hard for America, and we have nearly handed it to him on a silver platter.   I sometimes wonder why President Trump is being fought so hard.  The constant push against him is a little unnerving, isn’t it?  What do they think will happen if the POTUS fails?   It is inappropriate and irresponsible!   

Sometimes, less is always better, in this case, less is better:  Weight.  I wonder what the record is for diets started in one year?  

Be clear-minded and alert. Your opponent, the devil, is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.  
I Peter 5:8
