"We grow because we struggle, we learn and overcome."
R. C. Allen from: http://www.wiseoldsayings.com/struggle-quotes/
I hope you are having a great day. I wanted to talk a little bit about my struggle with low energy and having that achy feeling in my legs and arms.
I quit work about three years ago. I was struggling with pain in my legs and in my arms and hands. I had been to the doctor and I was on pain pills for quite some time.
Taking pain pills was not something I wanted to do but I did not know of any other way. I did not of any other way to feel better. Exercise was really difficult. I was dragging from the bedroom to the living room. From there I would drag into the kitchen and then back to the bedroom. That was about all that I could handle.
My thoughts were that this was what I had to look forward to for the rest of my life. Taking vitamins and other supplements for years in the past just did not seem to help me. I had given up on them.
One day when I went to the Dr. she told me I needed take a really good supplement for Vitamin B and also Calcium. I went to the health food store and got them. Each day I would take them. When I went back to the doctor she said my levels had gone up. That gave me some renewed interest in vitamins. The only thing was that I did not notice any improvement in how I felt.
Time passed and I heard some ladies at our church talking about a drink called Plexus. They said it really helped them. I wanted to know more.
I talked to one of them and she told me about Plexus and how to purchase them. I bought the Plexus Slim drink mix first. The first day I felt better. After about three days, my arms and legs did not have that dead feeling inside. I was so excited!
Now, I take the Slim drink and I normally I take the Bio Cleanse and ProBiotics too. I had tried a couple other products and I like them too, but I feel that the combination of the Slim, Bio Cleanse and the ProBio5 helps me more than anything else.
If you are feeling tired all the time and have aches and ailments that just won't go away, just try these three products. The Plexus company has a 60 day money back guarantee. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Buy them here: Plexus Slim Products.

Hello, It seems fitting that on the National Day of Prayer to have a post on praying. One of my favorite ways to pray is by walking in the woods or on some country path. It seems to help me to concentrate better. Maybe it is the peaceful atmosphere.
Can I pray for you and our country?
You are in charge of our world. Sometimes we forget that. Help us to remember that you are in charge and that nothing is going to happen that YOU cannot handle.
Teach us to pray dear Lord. It is so hard sometimes to know what to pray or how to pray. Show us how you want us to pray. Help us to see how important it is and how we must take the time to do it. I don't know exactly why it is so hard to pray. There are different reasons I think. Satan loves to keep us from it because it is so important. Then there is our busy-ness of life. There is always so much to do. There are so many people who need us. Help us to get our directions for our daily lives from you Father.
I pray for our country dear Lord. I pray that our leaders will make the right decisions for all the people in America. I pray that our land will once again look to you for guidance.
Give us courage dear Lord to do what is right even when it is not popular. Give us wisdom to know what to say and when to say it.
Help us as a people and a country to be guided by the light of love. Help us to help the hurting and the forgotten.
Bless our churches Father. Help us to have prayer at the center of our worship and activities.
I pray this in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

Today President Obama said there will NOT be a National Day of Prayer in May because he doesn't want to offend anyone. If this decision offends you as it does m...e, we need the President to know just how many Christians are offended. If you are offended, please copy and paste. Those who name Jesus Christ as their Lord God and Savior have too long allowed the world to take Him out of everything!
Once again, never worried about offending Christians.
Once again, never worried about offending Christians.

I think you will love this recipe. It is pretty easy to make.
White Chicken Chili
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 can green chills, drained and minced
4 cans white beans, undrained
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups rotisserie chicken meat, shredded
1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
Add olive oil, onion and garlic to large, unheated soup pot or dutch oven. Turn to medium heat and sauté onion and garlic until soft (about 10 - 15 minutes).
Add cumin, cayenne, salt and pepper and stir well. Add green chills, chicken broth, shredded chicken, and 2.5 cans of beans. Simmer uncovered 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, puree remaining 1.5 cans of undrained beans in blender or food processor. Add to soup to thicken. Simmer 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cheese until melted. Serve warm with crusty french bread.
NOTE: If you are watching your sodium intake, drain and rinse beans thoroughly. Replace discarded liquid with an equal amount of water. Another option is to not add additional salt to the recipe.
Leave me a comment if you try it.
