Happy Mother’s Day! New Diabetes Pen!


I couldn’t take the Victoza daily pen, sugars too low and no appetite. So I went back on oral meds only. Sugars rose at night, but were fine in the morning then all of a sudden they started rising in the morning too.

Went to my Endocrinologist Friday and now I have a once weekly pen which is called Tambien I believe. Very difficult to set up to take. Huge directions to follow.

I got it ready and took it. It didn’t hurt, but my sugars were really high that night and I had very little carbs. This morning woke up feeling lightheaded and shaky. My sugar was low, only 74. Grabbed some applesauce and then retook it and it was 125, much better. I might have to take a snack at bedtime every night to avoid this, but then again it is a weekly dosing pen and may not act that way all the time. I need to watch the trends. The good thing is my appetite is back. Thank you God! I have been praying over this situation.

He Died on the Cross for Us

by Teresa Smeigh

Seek Me with All Your Heart

Jeremiah 29:13  You will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find me when you search for Me with all your heart.

~~~~~~~

A commitment to spend time with God is as serious a commitment as any we will ever make.

The quality of our lives is affected by the time we spend with Him.

Do not become slack in the time you spend with Him because you know he is always available. Make him your priority.

~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

I am sorry for the times that I do not make you a priority in my life and do other non-important things. I shall make a commitment to spend time with you every day.

In the Lord’s name I pray,

Amen

My sugars are staying high. Don’t know what changed.


I did have to get a new meter. Ordered it today. Don’t know if it has a problem because of the meter or not. I can’t use the buttons to get my previous readings. Maybe it is my diet. If the Victoza didn’t take my appetite away I could eat more carbs. Now even none (fasting) is high again.

My grandson went to Camp LeJeune last Monday. Should be home again in a month to try recruiting to earn more stripes and see if he likes it. Whatever he ends up doing, I am proud of him. He is a good boy and hard working.

Fibromyalgia and exercise


Doctors do tend to recommend that you do some light exercise with Fibromyalgia. Mine suggests walking (have a fitbit and slowly adding more steps) and swimming in warm water is another one.

Though for some this works the opposite and increases the pain. You have to decide which is more important to you and what your pain level is. I am trying to walk through mine before I become completely unable to walk at all and end up in a wheelchair.

He Died on the Cross For Us

I will follow wherever you lead, my Lord!

By Teresa Smeigh

Prepare For Blessing!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 84:11

The Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord gives grace and glory; no good thing does He withhold from those that walk uprightly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As you wait for God to fulfill his promises to you, the thought may enter your mind that you are not good enough for God to give you what you want. He is preparing you to be ready for his plan to be carried out.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Thank you for loving me. You are so wise and kind, so I will wait for you.

Amen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you! I Corinthians 6:23

He Died on the Cross for Us

by Teresa Smeigh

2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV  We take captive of every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

~~~~~~~

No disobedient thoughts from the liar. Do not give in to him. Replace them with the truth of God’s Word.

Jesus takes responsibility for your success as you walk with him. The Father loves you so much He will never let go of you.

~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Please root out the enemy’s lies and replace with your word. Remove the strongholds so that I may walk in your freedom and glorify your name. In God I trust.

In the Lord’s name I pray,

Amen

Sugars have been high all day…


Not sure what is going on. Maybe the stress of meeting with my old grade school friend in person had something to do with it.
