The Iron Men

Today I received the following story and video in an email from my daughter's fiance. After watching it I knew I had to put it on the blog. Please do not skip over this post. It is an amazing picture of God's grace, goodness and strength for our lives. He has done all the work and now carries us in our daily lives. The video makes it all clear, but read the following first:

A son asked his father, "Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?" The father, despite having a heart condition, said "Yes". They went on to complete the marathon together. This father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying ''Yes" to his son's request to go through the race together. One day, the son said to his father, "Dad, let's join the Ironman together." To this his father said "Yes" .

For those who don't know, the Ironman is the toughest of all triathlons. The race, which takes place in Hawaii, encompasses three endurance events. These include a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride, and ends with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island. Father and son went on to complete the race together.

Click here to view the video of the duo.

After you see that video you will want to watch this one which tells the story of the father and son.

Tidy Tip Tuesday - Cookbook Crimes Undone

Do you use a cookbook while you're in the kitchen cooking? If so, have you ruined your favorites doing so? I have. The photo is of the oldest cookbook I own and it is so tattered and worn that I dare not take it into the kitchen for one more round lest it disintegrate into a puff of dust right in front of me.

I hope I am not alone in this crime of cookbook crunching. If I am alone - if all of you out there in Blog Land have neat, clean cookbooks then this post will be in vain. But just in case you suffer from the same malady, I would like to share with you a tip about how to keep your cookbooks tidy and clean.

About four years ago I wised up to this problem (yeah, I'm slow). First of all, I own quite a few cookbooks and it was a challenge to remember which recipe came from which book when I needed it. That together with being the Cookbook Killer made it necessary for me to come up with a different plan. So this is what I did:

1. I photo copied all the recipes I used on a consistent basis.

2. I arranged all the copies in alphabetical order.

3. I put the recipe pages into plastic protector sleeves, 2 to a sleeve with one recipe on the front and one on the back, keeping them in alphabetical order. But I also left some sleeves with just one recipe in them so that there would be space to add in new recipes when I wanted. Although I still had to make adjustments, it took less moving of recipes to new sleeves this way.

4. I printed up one page with all the names of the recipes (in alphabetical order) with a reference note that told me which book the recipe came from (in case I need to know sometime later). This is my "table of contents" page that I use if I cannot remember the exact name of the recipe. It is easier to look through a list than through the whole book. I also put the table of contents into a plastic sleeve.

5. All of these plastic sleeved pages I then put into a three-ring binder. I keep the binder on a kitchen shelf. When I need a recipe I open up to the right page, take the recipe in its plastic sleeve out of the binder and clip it to a magnet on the refrigerator. Or for my weekly menu, I take out all the recipes in their sleeves for the week according to what my menu plan is and put them on the frig in a clamp-type magnet, rotating each one to the back when I'm finished with it. At the end of the week, I put them all back in the binder and take out the next week's recipes.

6. I also make up a page with my weekly menu plan, put it in a plastic sleeve and keep it on the frig next to the recipes. Here is a photo of the one cookbook I now use. It is relatively "Sharon proof" and it is the only one I need to reach for when I cook.


I am a reformed woman now, no longer wrecking cookbooks. The new ones stay new looking. And the old ones are still surviving. Kind of like me.

Two of My Favorite Products

Perhaps you have come here in search of Menu Plan Monday. This is one of those Mondays when the Lord willed otherwise. This is mostly due to the fact that my youngest daughter is getting married in early August and this past week was filled with getting the invitations out. What I thought would take a day or two at the most ended up taking all week. Hence, no menu post for today.
However, I though it might be good to put up an easy post concerning a few of my favorite products.

Two lifesavers that we have come to depend upon and stock in our home are Zicam and NutriBiotic GSE (Grapefurit Seed Extract). Whenever either Robert or I feel like we are getting a cold or the flu we dose ourselves with these two preventatives. Zicam Cold Remedy is homeopathic and is clinically proven to shorten the duration of a cold. GSE acts like an antibiotic (without creating antibiotic-resistant bacteria), and also kills viruses. (You can check out the uses for GSE here. Although the brand is different - not GSE - the product is the same.) There are no side effects for either Zicam or GSE.

These two products taken together when a cold or the flu are in the very beginning stages really do knock the bugs right out of you. Just last week I went to bed feeling like I was getting something bad. I had a headache, beginnings of a sore throat and felt shaky inside. I dosed myself with both GSE and Zicam. I woke in the middle of the night (about 4 hours later) and took more of each. When I woke in the morning I felt fine. If I ever do get sick, being on both products shortens the illness and minimizes the symptoms dramatically.
Both really work and are safe for children also. The only thing you have to be careful to do is to continue to take both products for several days after you feel fine. Otherwise the nasty little bugs gang up on you again.

As another testimonial, GSE can be used for animals. My cat Mortimer has had a chronic sinus infection for 4 years. We would get him cleared up but only for a short time and it would come back. His eyes were affected (yucky drainage). About 7 months ago, Mort started eating canned cat food after having refused it for several years. We started him on a dose of one drop daily (GSE) added to his cat food. He eyes and sinuses were clear within a few days and as long as we give him a maintenance dosage (one drop several times a week in his food) he is fine.

I could tell you more, but what you need to know is where to get Zicam and GSE. Zicam is in every drug store and most grocery stores. GSE is available in health food stores. (Or click here for the website.) It might seem a bit pricey to you (around $11 for a 2 oz. bottle), but it (GSE) lasts for years. For the best price I've found visit VitaCost here.

These are two of my favorite products. They really work! If you decide to try them I am relatively sure that you will not be disappointed.

A Great Comment from Chone

Chone sent this comment regarding the "no poo" (no shamPOO) post from some weeks ago. Read through her great comment and then find the original article here.

Hi Sharon,
I've been dying to try this out but wanted to wait until I was able to get a hair cut. So this past Saturday I finally was able to cut my hair (they cut 12 inches off! Yeah, my hair was super long). So last night I tried this wash. I've got to tell you how great it is. The baking soda wash left my hair "squeaky" clean! The Apple Cider Vinegar rinse was so cool. There was a slight vinegar smell but once I rinsed it off (with cool water) it was fine. I was so surprised how soft my hair felt. It even felt soft while it was wet. I was able to rub my fingers through my wet hair without any tangles! Amazing!
This is so great! I can’t wait to wash my hair again. Thanks so much for posting this.

Love,
Chone

Thank you, Chone, for the feedback. I've made this change also and there's no going back for me. It's a win-win situation because this method not only leaves your hair softer and more managable, it also saves quite a bit of money which can be used in better ways. Now if I could just find a solution for replacing conventional hairspray. Ideas anyone?

Tidy Tip Tuesday - Cheese Whiz!

Just the other day, after practically forty-five years in the kitchen, I figured out how to grate cheese in a proficient, tidy way. I am wondering why it took me so long to figure it out. It really is a no-brainer and all of you have probably already been doing this for years. But just in case you are still grating cheese on the cutting board or even into a bowl, I will post this tip that hopefully save you some clean-up and a little bit of time.

1. When you grate cheese, first of all use a standing cheese grater like the one in the photo.

2. Instead of grating the cheese onto a cutting board or into a bowl, grate it into a gallon zipper baggie. Grate as much or as little as you want.

3. After you have removed what you need from the baggie, put what remains of the block of cheese into the same gallon bag (with the grated cheese) and put the bag into the frig. There's no mess to clean up and you've saved yourself some time.

Now tell me, is that not a no-brainer? Do you have any of these types of tips you could share here on Tidy Tip Tuesday? If you would send a tip or two, we could all help each other and our lives would be just a little easier.

Word-in-My-Heart-Wednesday - James 1:2-4

It's the third Wednesday of the month and time for a new Bible verse to memorize. For those of you who did not catch the first of these posts, Word-in-My-Heart Wednesday works as follows: On the first and third Wednesdays of the month the scrolling verse at the top of the page will be changed. Visit this blog on a daily basis to memorize the current verse. When a new verse is posted, the old verse will be archived and available on the sidebar under Word-in-My-Heart Wednesday. Click on it and it will pop up in a scrolling text for your review. Review is the key to retaining what you have memorized. It takes only a few minutes daily to review the verses you have committed to memory.

The new verse I am posting is James 1:2-4. It is now at the top of this blog. Here, the apostle James was writing to the Hebrew believers who were under severe trials. They were undergoing persecution. Some had experienced the seizure of their property. James did not want them to waste their trial, so he tells them to count it all joy. He wanted these saints to see the divine purpose for God-ordained trials. God is perfecting us through trials. He is making us like His Son.
And trials will come. Jesus experienced far greater trials than you or I ever will. If God did not spare His sinless Son from suffering why should we expect to be exempt?

Trials will either draw us closer to God or drive us from Him. O, but the sweetness that the Spirit ministers to us of the Savior when we draw near to Him in the midst of our difficulties. He gives joy when we sense that He sympathizes with us. He understands. Counting it all joy has everything to do with running to Jesus who knows our struggles. He makes Himself precious to us at those times. He discloses Himself to us.

Hebrews 10:34-36 tells us how a group of Jewish believers handled the same kind of trial as the recipients of James' letter were experiencing. We're told that they accepted "joyfully the seizure of your [their] property, knowing that you [they] have for yourselves [themselves] a better possession and a lasting one. Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised."

These believers used their trials for God's glory. No difficulty was wasted in pity partying for they knew God too well to feel sorry for themselves. They knew He was accomplishing much good on their behalf which would serve to bring Him glory. And they also knew that He was always working, in fact that there never was a split second in which He wasn't working for their good.

Let us not throw away our confidence in the midst of trials. Let us not waste what God will use for our good, both now and in eternity for His honor! Let us count it all joy when our hearts are heavy with burdens. That is the only way we can be lifted above the struggle to see the One who loves us perfectly and to allow Him to perfect us through that struggle.

Memorize James 1:2-4! And use it for God's glory.

Tidy Tip Tuesday - Sewing with Duct Tape?

I discovered the tip that I'll share with you today several weeks ago when I was sewing. To make a long story short, I had ripped out the seams in some drapes and was making a tablecloth out of one of the drapery panels. There were about 6 long rows of broken threads that needed to be picked out and I knew it was going to take more time than I was willing to spend. So I put on my thinking cap and Wha-lah! Duct tape came to mind.

I fetched the tape, tore off a piece and pressed it up against the broken threads and then pulled it off of the fabric. It worked like a charm. I had all of the threads out in no time flat. Duct tape to the rescue again! Where would we all be without duct tape?

Theology - Necessary Soul Food for the Good Woman: Part Seven

This is a continuing series about why and how real theology is necessary for the woman of God. For previous articles please click here.

When Jesus visited Martha’s home in Bethany, both she and her sister, Mary, learned a penetrating and enduring lesson from Jesus about the importance of theology for women (Lk. 10:38-42). At that time Rabbis considered it unthinkable to allow women to learn the Scriptures. “Rather burn the sayings of the law than teach them to a woman” was a common adage. But in their home in Bethany, Jesus interrupts time, busyness and decorum, and in His infinite essence heralds a message to Mary and Martha (and the men) that only one thing is of eternal importance – knowing Him. “Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her” (vs. 42).

Paul tells Timothy to, “Let a woman learn in silence with all submission” (I Tim. 2:11). So we have it from Christ and the apostle Paul that women should be students of Christ who come to Him to learn. Martha could not handle a simple situation because she had not been at Jesus’ feet. How then can women have peace in difficult circumstances without the anchor of a full knowledge of their God? And knowing Him only casually is really not knowing Him at all.

The woman determined to know God intimately, strives to sit at His feet when everything else shouts “Get up, get busy!” When God’s goodness is obscured from our sight in the storms of life, a casual knowledge of Him will only hasten a faltering faith into the depths of doubt and despair. In order to weather the deluge, a real working knowledge of God is imperative if we would have a compass to guide us in the chaos.

We will be assured, like Job, that no matter what life’s challenges, God is good – He is perfectly and eternally good. “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled” (Ps. 46:1-3).

Recently I heard a story about some Christian women from Bangladesh, a culture in which women are considered chattel. In Bangladesh women's lives are agonizingly hard. Most have no love demonstrated toward them, whether they are young or old. Husbands in this culture have many women (just as you and I have as many pairs of shoes as we please) and they treat their women like property.

A group of these women heard the gospel and some came to know Christ, but since they did not fully grasp how much God loved them, they continued to live dejected, heartless lives. There seemed to be no change until a missionary began to teach them about the attributes of God – theology proper. When they understood the magnanimity of His love for them and His goodness toward them, they asked, “Are you saying that God loves us in this way? He wants only our good? Why didn't someone tell us of this sooner?”

From that day on they were able to smile, though their circumstances were not changed. They had the peace of God and knew that He truly cared for them. A new personal dignity sustained them. Not even the harshest, most brutal treatment could shake their confidence in God’s love for them. They were changed because they dug deep into God’s glorious character and discovered strength there for themselves.

While in Uganda recently, I taught a group of Christian women from Entebbe. These women were mostly illiterate and therefore unlearned in the Scriptures. I observed that a course of child rearing “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” was badly needed. When raising children in this harsh environment, parents tend to be severe and unloving, with the idea that this will help their kids cope with the difficulties they will face as adults. I saw children with real needs left to cry and “get over it”. Obviously, the women needed light from the Scriptures.

As they learned about their relationship to God, how He sees them in His Son, their adoption by the Spirit, their Heavenly Father's parental love for them, how He disciplines the ones He loves, about His goodness toward His children, and more, the women were overwhelmed with gratitude to God. They repented of their harsh practices and simply wanted to love their children, to be kindly disposed to them as God was toward them. I saw before me a “new creation” in Christ. The old cultural standards passed away in the warmth of this fresh knowledge of God, and all relationships became new. Their difficult lives and their children’s also became sweet that day because of what they knew, because theology became a part of their being.

While we were there in Uganda, I became acquainted with Eddie, the wife of Venencio, the college chaplain in Zana, Uganda (currently, Venencio is pastoring a church in Bundibudgeo, which is on the border of the Congo in northern Uganda). I was overjoyed when she responded to the theology that she learned when we visited there. The mother of toddler twins who suffer terribly from sickle cell anemia, she was despondent and had even emotionally detached herself from her babies since there was so little she could do to help them in their pain. She distanced herself, realizing she might not always have them. She was truly caught in the storm’s tempest. But when she heard that God was “the Lord above the storm”, about His sovereignty over the storm, she began to look up to Him and found great strength and comfort. Her countenance revealed the peace she had as a result of her knowing God better.

Personally, I can affirm that theology – knowing God – has been an anchor for me in the trials I have faced. When one of our daughters ran away from home at the age of sixteen, one day before her birthday, my world came crashing down. I turned to God, although I could not understand why He would allow such anguish. He strengthened me and even gave me joy in spite of the heartache.

But I knew that my knowledge of God was shaky at best. He was using the trial to deliver me from the false teaching I had succumbed to over the previous five years. Living legalistically, I had expected that because I was doing my part in raising our children, God was obligated to save them. Now I told myself, “Either God is a liar or my beliefs are completely false.” I knew God well enough to recognize that the problem was not with Him; He can not lie for He is not only the source of all truth, He is truth. I thank Him for those early lessons of theology proper that taught me that fact clearly.

God then put a desire within me to discover more truth concerning Him so that I could battle the lies I had believed and the bitterness that would follow if I became complacent about pursuing Him. Along with the Psalmist I confessed, "It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes." (Ps. 119:71) So with abundant resources before me (shelves filled with my husband's theological books and every English Bible translation known to man), I began a quest for God that resolved all my issues. That initial seeking has become an unending pursuit for me. Even today, seeking God in this way creates in me more of a hunger for God. The more I know about Him, the more I realize there is so much more to know about Him, for He is inscrutable.

Now I know the truth of Psalm 119:67-68, "Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word. You are good and do good; teach me Your statutes." Notice that the Psalmist does not rest on his laurels, the fact that he keeps God's word (..."but now I keep Your word..." in verse 67). No, he knows his heart all too well. He knows that he must continue to pursue knowing God in His word. He prays "...teach me Your word." (68).

This is exactly what I need. If I ease off of this pursuit, I know where my heart will take me and I do not want to go there. The practicality of daily theology, consistently getting to know God more intimately, is the "one thing " I need. And it is the only pursuit that yields eternal, lasting returns.

Oh, may we, like Mary, strive to sit and learn at Christ's feet. When the world pulls and demands our attention, may we hear His admonishment as did Martha, "Sharon, Sharon, you are worried and bothered about so many things but only one thing is needed. Choose that which will not be taken away from you. Choose to know Me."

Tidy Tip Tuesday - Sheets and Eggs - Neat as a Pin

The response that came in regarding last week's Tidy Tip Tuesday was quite surprising. Since there have hardly ever been any comments concerning Tickle Bone Tuesday, I have decided to make the switch. From now on, when you visit on Tuesdays, Lord willing, there will be a post for a handy tip that relates to the domestic realm.

Please, please, please send me your tips and I will post the tip and your first name (if you wish). Eventually, I will make this a "carnival" post, like Menu Plan Monday, where you can leave a link to your blog or website with your own tidy tip offering. As the hostess of the carnival, all the links would be posted on this blog. You could visit here and find dozens, perhaps eventually, even hundreds of tips. More about that later.

For now, I will leave you with 2 tips:
The first tip was sent to me in a comment from Chone. She said concerning the "fitted-sheet video" from last Tuesday, "Cool! This is exactly how I fold my fitted sheets. I saw this in my Martha Stewart's Good Things for Organizing book. It really helps to keep them folded this way. Also, just another tip, to keep all the matching linens together I put the pillow case(s), sheets (flat & fitted) into one of the pillow cases. That way when it's time to change the linens I don't have to look around for the matching sheets. Lookin' forward to more Tidy Tips from you!"

Isn't Chone's idea great? I am going to start doing that right away! Thank you for your tidy tip, Chone!

The second tip comes from my own kitchen. To keep eggs from breaking when you hard boil them, use one of these little gadgets. I found this one at a kitchen store. But the very first one I ever purchased came from Linens and Things.

From the picture, you can see that the packaging gives no clue as to what this thing is (there is no writing on the back either). So if you were to see one of these for the first time, you could only wonder what it is.

So, without further ado, I will tell you how this little $1.50 item works. Simply place the wide end of a raw egg on the top (white part) of this gizmo, push the egg down, and a needle in the center of the what-cha-ma-call-it pokes a tiny hole in the end of the egg. Steam escapes from the egg through the hole while it's cooking, preventing any pressure from building up inside, which prevents the egg from cracking or breaking. Since I started using this thing (about 8 years ago) , I have had nary a broken hard boiled egg. It really works!

Well-Pleased Prisoners

My husband was reading G. Campbell Morgan's commentary on the book of Acts today and called my attention to a song that Madame Guyon wrote sometime between 1695 and 1705, a 10-year period that she spent in a French prison. Morgan related Madame Guyon's song to the joy that Paul and Silas displayed as they, in stocks and bleeding from having been publicly whipped, worshipped God in their dark dungeon cell. Think of her song when you find yourself complaining about what life throws at you:

A little bird am I
Shut from the fields of air;
And in my cage I sit and sing
To Him who placed me there;
Well-pleased a prisoner to be
Because my God, it pleaseth Thee.
Nought else have I to do;
I sing the whole day long;
And He Whom most I love to please,
Doth listen to my song;
He caught and bound my wandering wing,
But still He bends to hear me sing.
Thou hast an ear to hear;
A heart to love and bless;
And, though my notes were e'er so rude,
Thou wouldst not hear the less;
Because Thou knowest, as they fall,
That same, sweet Love, inspires them all.
My cage confines me round;
Abroad I cannot fly;
But though my wing is closely bound,
My heart's at liberty.
My prison walls cannot control
The flight, the freedom of my soul.
Oh, it is good to soar
These bolts and bars above,
To Him Whose purpose I adore,
Whose providence I love;
And in Thy mighty will to find
The joy, the freedom of the mind.


Need I say more?

Word-in-My-Heart Wednesday - 1 John 5:14-15

When you visit The Good Woman on the first and third Wednesdays of the month now, you will find a regular post called Word-in-My-Heart-Wednesday. Every first and third Wednesday of the month I will post a verse from Scripture in marquee-style at the very top of the page (like you have been seeing recently). It will remain there for two weeks for the purpose of your committing the verse to memory (if you so desire).

I decided to do this because I found that I was memorizing the verse I had posted at the top of the page just by reading it each time I worked on this blog. If you are a regular visitor, this should work for you also. So before you do any other reading, take the time to meditate on the verse for a minute or two. Since it is in a marquee, you can recite each section of the verse before it appears on the screen and then check yourself as it scrolls by to see if you were right.

In order to retain the verses you've learned you will need to review. This is the only way you will not forget them. This takes very little time. Just reciting the verse once or twice as it scrolls by on the screen is enough review for a verse you already have fixed in your mind. Do this daily for several months and then less often.

In order for you to review, the verses will be archived with just one short phrase from the verse (in the sidebar) to prompt you. Click on the phrase on the sidebar and the verse will pop up in a marquee. Review older verses after you have worked on your current verse.

The first verse of what hopefully will by dozens that you will commit to memory is 1 John 5:14-15. It is now scrolling at the top of the page. The verse will also be posted on the sidebar under "Word-in-My-Heart Wednesday". You can see it there now. After the verse changes in 2 weeks go to the sidebar and click on "This is the confidence" in order to review 1 John 5:14-15. All the verses I post for memory on Wednesdays will be listed there. Just click on the one you want to review.

If you have any questions please email me (find my email at the sidebar.
