o From the Desk with Bill
Good day Everyone. It has been rather busy around here. I do my best in looking after my granddaughter Jessica and also looking after my mother-in-law. Well my weight is climbing again but not at a fast rate as before which is good but on the other hand I seem to seem to tire easily due to my hypothyroid even though some people just don't quite understand that and think you should just get passed it. My depression seems to have gotten better since I have been taking Vitamin B at midday and my depression medicine in the mornings also I take Iron Fizz which is Vitamin B12 & C & Folic Acid which helps in the morning fighting fatigue and boosts energy. I am hoping to lower my cholesterol without taking the pills prescribed by the doctor so if anyone is taking a vitamin for it and it seems to help let me know. My hearing goes up and down and lately I been having this noise in my ears even though there's no noise going on can be very annoying especially when trying to get some sleep. I did have a migraine a couple days finally got over it mid morning.
o Family News
My Mother-in-law has moved in with us yesterday due to her memory failing her at times and also she said she didn't like being on her own at the village/apartment she was staying at,as she felt she didn't fit in like before and really didn't hold to same conversations as the other residence living there even a few would talk about her which wasn't nice either. Anyway she is a great help with granddaughter and plus it gives her a chance to spend that time with her great granddaughter.
Delwyn has a job now working for Explore Group which they take people on trips to Waiheke Island and other islands and also the Bay of Island up North and also the Sydney Harbour in Australia. She is an Accounts Clerk doing debtors and creditors etc.
Allan is still mowing yards,Church cleaning and also is now working for Grace College doing the videos and sound system and also on Sunday Mornings at times working the Videos and or sound at Covenant Presbyterian Church.
Bryan & Kylee is expecting their second child which is a little girl whose name will be Indiana. So Jessica will be a big sister.
It's been quite chilly as we are in our Winter season but some days are pleasant during the day. The worse comes in July and August.
This Cornerstone comes from reading Peter Cockrell blog “Already not Yet” you can read more of his post @ http://pjcockrell.wordpress.com.
But He posted a blog that hit me right between the eyes most of the time I did skip Church because of being unwell but I got so comfortable at it that I thought oh well no one really misses me so Id skip a Sunday or two when I was well. Anyway the post Peter posted came from a person name Nathan Rose and you can read his post here. http://ftc.co/resource-library/blog-entries/5-spiritual-dangers-of-skipping-church#.VXL17cw0k-Q.facebook
The ones that got my attention most was 2,3 and 4
2 ~ You disobey God. Well for one I never thought of the intention of disobeying God like this, it never really crossed my mind that this was out of a disobedience. I do now. Ouch.
3 ~ You make a statement to the world that God is not worthy of worship.
Again I never thought of it this way either but on this note I was in fellowship with Christians at Grace Baptist SL even though this might not be face to face to fellow believers it was among believers and reading and studying God's word. I never thought of just because some Sunday morning I didn't go to Church that I thought I was making such statement.
4 ~ You can’t minister to anyone. I personally don't feel that I can or could ever be of a minister to anyone with my presences perhaps its due to my past with depression and lots of people in general who has broken me over time with their words and or actions.
I do believe we are to edify one another and or build one another up in Christ. I am very sceptical of people and 70% of the time my gut is right so to speak.
Looking back I would never guess that I used to teach young adult classes, sung in a Choir or even take up the offering and lead the prayer over it, also I used to take bulletins for Elderly people of all different kind of denominations and had devotional with them,even welcome people into the Church I feel as though I'm talking about a complete stranger. It was even a shock to me when Grace Baptist asked me to become an Elder for their Church. So I am in prayer that God will continue to use me where He wants me to be.

Allan showed me a video on “fed up” talking about Sugar which I found very interesting even though I have my shortcoming as being from the South I love foods the sweeter the food the better even though I can see the danger it causes. The allowed maximum is 4 teaspoon, we all know you going to get much more in America foods and even in New Zealand food is starting up the ladder following the habits. Anyway here is a graph showing you the different names of sugar so you can keep an eye out if you are trying to watch what your eating,

As some of you know I'm a big Google freak I prefer it to most things even the blue rubbish of facebook every time I see the “F” on Facebook and I immediately think Failure, It was good when it first started out then it started going to the dogs in my book and also noticed from a list that they support the same sex marriage, yes I still use it and I even have two of them because a majority of my family or friends use it and doesn't care to go elsewhere but in the near future I WILL be leaving them both for my Google+. I deleted my Ello acct. as well. I will do what's best for me and works for me rather I'm right or wrong. Anyway not to rant on Facebook as much as I did hahaha. Another program I use so far is todoist and Google Calendar. Well now wonderful things are happening so go check this site out and learn of new things you can do to make things a bit easier for you I enjoy using them both.
Well that's all for now until the next time I write
