If you really want to declutter for this year try throwing away Doubt, Worry, Regret, Bad Feelings & Fear. Try replacing them with Faith, Hope & Prayer!
Adjust all recipes for less fat & sugar.
Most good, healthy meals don’t take many ingredients or need to be complicated.
Omit or decrease dressings, sauces & gravies.
Do not fry your foods, ever! I have cooked frozen southern style hash browns in my toaster oven with no oil a few times. I will sometimes coat them with a teaspoon but cooking in oil adds many unneeded calories.
My quest is to have the best blogs I can from this day forward. Now let’s see if I keep that promise. My goal had always been to provide needed information to others regarding many aspects of living in todays very confusing world, with a little entertainment and pretty pictures.
I want to give others ideas and shortcuts to living in a world that will rob you blind spiritually as well as financially. It was supposed to give definite tips to save money, offer suggestions to solve various lifestyle issues such as cooking, cleaning, decorating, gardening and crafting. I have really fallen short in this area because as my mother used to say “obviously, it’s too much like work” now.
Even though I have experienced the joys of motherhood myself, it was so many years ago this is definitely not a “mommy blog.”
I plan to have more recipes, gardening tips and photo enhancement tips from Photoshop, which I seldom use, Microsoft Photodraw the first photographic software I purchased and still us even though support stopped many years ago to Ulead PhotoImpact which has awsome particle effects like lighting and fog.
Thank you all for your patience and I hope you will enjoy the new, improved Po’ Girl Shines. I owe my faith and hope to Jesus. God bless you all. Peace to you all.
One of the saddest things about love is when you have to die for it. Why does anyone have to die for love? That defeats the purpose of love. We all need to start living for love and not allowing anyone or anything to make us quit, slow us down or stop us! We need to make sure that no one has to die for love again. Too many soldiers and men of peace have died since Jesus gave his life as a sacrifice over 2000 years ago. Too many lives are ended by those who have no hope or peace in their hearts. Those who don’t know what love is. Jesus gave us the knowledge that we truly can do anything if we have enough faith. He told us that if we really love him, we will keep his commandment of loving one another. If it wasn’t hard to do, it wouldn’t have to be a commandment, but it can be done.
