Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2012-199, Healthy Insights: A Word of Hope for Diabetics, Part 3 of 3

Currently my A1c is 5.  My fasting glucose ranges from 85 to 103.  My blood pressure was 120/65.  All my numbers are good.  This is the danger time.

Am I cured?  No.  I never will be.  This is a lifestyle change.  I think of it like being an alcoholic.  I may be in control but I will always be a diabetic.  Will things change?  Maybe.  Our bodies get older, things wear out.  But for now I am healthier than I was ten years ago.  The charts still say I am overweight so don’t pay too much attention to them.  Everyone thinks I am skinny.  Believe it or not, my wife is now nagging be that I should eat more.  I am in not danger of becoming anorexic.  I am still around 215 pounds at 6'3".  I can maintain that.  I am still eating 2,500 calories a day.  I can live with that.  God willing, I will remain in control.

It might not work for you.  I understand that.  Don’t feel guilt if you are doing everything right and it isn’t working for you.  But please, if you have never given weight loss a serious try, check it out.  It has worked for me.  I can only hope that you might also be one of that undiscovered 5%.

To be continued in life, if not on this blog.
