- Be thankful. This tip seems so simple but can be a hard task to do at first if your mind is set on some negativ emotions or memories. Be thankful for what was. Be thankful for what is. Be thankful for the blessings you do have now in your life. Say out loud when your down what your thankful for and keep going till you feel better. It works for me. Psalm 100 [Full Chapter] A psalm of thanksgiving: Shout for joy to Adonai, all the earth! Serve Adonai with gladness. Enter his presence with joyful songs. Beaware that Adonai is God; it is he who made us; and we are his, his people, the flock in his pasture. ...

I have faced many losses in my life. At this time of year it can be hard on many people for many reasons. Depression can run rampant for some. There has been years I let it ruin my holidays. Really for the average public it boils down to a persons out look. We can choose happiness or sadness. I ask myself this holiday which do I choose? I choose joy. I choose to not focus on the difficult year I have had, focus on the loved ones who aren't around anymore, the loved ones who are acting difficult etc.! I want to share with you my tips on finding joy this Christmas.
With the Holidays here there is so much to get done until the end of 2016. This year has been a busy year for many only to end the year staying busy with holiday preparations and celebrations. Self care has been something I am trying to work on in my life. It is important during all the busy to take time out for yourself, so why not take a relaxing bath? I will share with you some tips on how to make the most of your bath!
Tip 1: Start with a clean bathroom. Really who wants to sit in a dirty tub? Where there is dirty and clutter there is stress. Before you take time to relax really make sure your bathroom is clean. Plan ahead. It will make a big difference on the atmosphere and the mind as you relax. It is way more satisfying.
Tip 2: While the bath is running add some Epson salt. Add at least a cup or three. Mix well and allow it to dissolve. This will help you detox and relax those muscles.
Tip 3: Add at least 7 to 10 drops of your favorite essential oil. Essential oils usefulness are endless. They will also aid in detoxing, skin care, aromatherapy and relaxing.
Tip 4: Light candles. Light candles with or without scent. Aromatherapy is a real thing and can aid in healing if you choose scented. So is ambiance of the atmosphere. It will make it more relaxing and send the signal to your brain that you are worth this moment. Don't skip this step!
Tip 5: Grab a tub pillow, some music or a book to enjoy while you rest. What ever will allow you to rest mentally during your bath escape do it. For me I wouldn't enjoy sounds but the silent personally to mentally relax my mind but it may be different for you. If you do not have a tub pillow just fold a towel up to rest your head on as you lay back in the tub. It is way more comfortable that way.
Tip 6: Consider upgrading your bathroom in the new year. No matter the size you could use Eco friendly W2 by WETSTYLE.

As the new year is approaching I have been thinking deeply. Reflecting on this past years goals and what will be the new years goals. One that I had for 2016 was to get in shape. I am not where I want to be. I will say that this year I did more than the prior year towards that goal through out the year, so with that said I will keep moving forward at what ever pace I can but at least it is going forward! I was asked recently to discover CycleBar in Raleigh. I thought the timing could not of been more perfect. I was wanting to try something new towards my health and wellness goal. And you know I love adventure.
Let's face it if you are not as active as you should be, going to a gym can be a little intimidating. This year I had been exercising at home. So most of my anxiety left when I walked into the door and saw the fun party like atmosphere. Instead of a feeling of I know I should do this yet feel dread I felt pumped! Really!
The staff was top noch amazing, helpful, bright and cheery. Which helped to take away the first anxiety I had about my new adventure. Now don't get me wrong I was excited too, just you know what I mean!
Now the first stop is the sign in wall. You sign in on the tablets. Next you pick out your shoe size. On the bottom of these shoes are clamps that lock into the bikes pedal to keep your feet on track and secure. You do not have to use these but I enjoyed using them to be more secure.
Next stop was the refreshment bar. They make sure before you go into the bike room you are hooked up with plenty of H2O. I was asked by this gentleman if I like my water room temperature or chilled. The Cyclebar water bottle are yours to keep or you can give it back.
The bike room is awesome. It is so many things to so many people. It can be a battleground to beat the spirit of laziness. It can be a sanctuary to retreat from stress. The staff helps you get the bike adjusted to your level of comfort before the session begins.
Your individual bike is equipped with everything you will need. From monitor, towel, water, weight bar it is all here. I was on the front row. See the large fan in the front of the class? It was funny, the instructor after pumping us a bit to get us going said you had to work for the fan! Great way to look at it and boy I wanted the fan. The music was motivating to get you going no matter what mood you may be in as you enter the room. The instructors say they are part educator, DJ, drill sargent, and motivator. Was it true? Yes! They are every bit of all that. I know without the instructors motivation I couldn't of done it on my own.
After your ride they have the refreshment bar with complementary drinks and fruit to recharge you. I forgot the mention they have lockers for your things, a shower, towels & shower gel all FREE for you to use and be heading on to your day. It is fantastic they thought of everything to make your ride as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
This is the Cyclebar community wall, which I think is a great idea. It is the gathering of all to know.
Now one thing I did not mention yet, the instructors claim, is to come along side you and be a friend not just staff. This was my instructor Whitey. Her attitude is so contagious! She shared her story of why she is into the "ride". Her story mirrored mine in some ways. She found out she had heart problems and decided to take matters into her own hands to not allow the heart problem so to speak be a problem! Way to go Whitney and it is the exact motivation I need because I too have some minor heart issues. I want to be victorious over my health as Whitney has done. She also wanted to wake up everyday and be happy at what she does and she has accomplished that hands down. She loves sharing empowerment with others to lift you up and tell you, you can do this! I am excited to hear more of the stories of others encouragement and be a part of becoming a more empowered, healthier me on this journey.
They spoil you at Cyclebar. All the business swag you see is free as well. They really hook you up.
Any gear you may need on your fitness journey they offer for sale as well. In a non to shoppy way, the items are displayed gingerly around the lobby for your browsing enjoyment.
As I begin this journey at Cyclebar I look forward to it. I look forward to meeting new people. I look forward to a fitter me. I look forward to being more empowered over my health as 2017 approaches. What better way to start off a new year and end the old. This year has been a stressful year for me and it is time I set aside time for me and to have some self care. I think Cyclebar is the place to really do that.
I was provided a complementary membership to Cyclebar in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions.

Years ago one of the first ministries I heard of when I became a new chrisitian was Wycliffe Bible Translators. I would like to explain what they do but first share some facts with you.
Now with new technologies Bible translation has been on hyper drive! Below is a sample of the MAST system.
I loved seeing the technology displays and hearing the explanation of how they work in 3rd world countries out in the middle of a jungle for example.
This is the TNT. Tablets for National Translators. They have a team of local people help with the Bible translations by giving the team these tablets. It rapidly speeds up the process that used to take years. In a world of violent extremists who do not want people to hear the word of God speed is of the essence.
I love this mini POD (Print on Demand) before they would have to wait forever for Bibles to be printed in another country now they can get the word to them on the spot with this POD. The written word on paper instantly is better than nothing I say.
I heard two testimonies that night. One was a video testimony of a Bible translator leader. He was in a dangerous area that he could potentially lose his life. He had people on his team whom in fact did die for the cause. Another deeply moving testimony was the guest speaker Grace Fabian. Her and her husband spent over 20 years ministering, living & loving to the Nubuk people. They worked faithfully helping to get their people group's language into written form so it could be translated into the word of God. One day her husband was brutally killed by one of the Nubuck friends. She was first on the scene to see it. As she held her husband in her arms and pulled the ax out of his skull her life was forever changed. She struggled with finishing the call. But she rose again by faith after some time and with help finished translating the word of God to the Nubuck. Now that tribe and people group can have the word and know salvation. Grace forgave. Love won. The word of God coming to these unreached people groups does not come without a price at times. May God bless all the missionaries & those who donate to the cause! With out the Bible how will the people know of salvation or learn how to live in peace?
Visit Grace at www.gracefabian.com
I am so honored to of spent the evening with Wycliffe to hear what they are currently doing in the world and how far that God has taken this ministry over the years. It is projected to have all the people groups reached with the Word of God in their own written language by 2025! Please help make this goal possiable. There are many ways you can help by visiting Wycliffe.org
Will America be great again? I ask myself this often as I watch our nation spiral downward. But what changed my despair was the day I went to a Trump Rally. I felt such energy in the room from the people it was inexpiable. I attended the event earlier this year but did not write about it. I sat on sharing my views but now that I have rebranded my site and it is called Suzie's View why not. It is my view. This is still America and I have a voice. I was so encouraged as I saw hundreds lined up trying to get into the Amphitheater to hear Trump here in Raleigh, N.C. We stood in the cold waiting for a long time but I saw all sorts of good people who are fed up with the way things are in this nation. And to see us all coming together to huddle in the cold for hours to get into a building to hear what Trump had to say just did something to me. It revived me and the American spirit.
As we now sit months later on the edge of the election trail, waiting to see who will be our next President, I pray. I pray for a better America. I pray and hope for a better unity. I pray and believe for at least one last great revival. Before this years election I was becoming so disenchanted with America and the political corruption. Our government has become a monster, point blank. I do not want it continuing to get out of control. With it in bed with big pharma, baiting race wars that was not real, dabbling in foreign politics sticking it's nose where it does not belong, telling us how to raise our kids and educate them, not taking care of the vets who risked their lives for our safety and the safety of others. The list of sins goes on and on. It sickens me. But I see a movement opposite of what corrupt media reports.
I see a movement of people sick of it all, coming together to support each other and make a change. I see passionate people like Diamond and Silk who have such a fire for all people and equality for all. They are making their voice heard. Everyone's voice matters in this nation. I see Trump who is a successful man who wants to change what is broken in this nation for the PEOPLE and by the people! I have long admired Trump ever since I was a child. I do not like his past mistakes but we all have a past. We all make mistakes. But one thing Trump has done is persevered. He knows how to deal and knows America has been dealt a bad hand by it's leaders. Trump is smart. He is not a puppet. He can lead us back to prosperity and safety with God's help. Hillary is not what will be good for this country. She is part of the problem, People listen, years before Benghazi she has murdered. People I encourage you to dig and read on her. Really dig and get information. I have. Do you really want someone like that running our country? Stop being a sheeple and flowing the crowd. It is time for real change. We don't need any more puppets for people like George Soros & the elite.
As I have watched our media lie about Mr. Trump I have been seeking other news sources like Right Side Broadcasting on Youtube who will show the rallies live and show what main stream media will not show. They show the huge supporter turn outs for Trump that the Hillary camp media fails to show in their pictures or camera shots. I have seen it with my own eyes. It is totally disgusting the Hillary campers at our rally's disrupting Trump so rudely as he tries to speak. But you never find a Trump supporter at Hillary's dinky rallies making a fuss being rude. I saw one to many people make a scene and have to be escorted out. Let's not lay down and be doormats any longer!
Listen to this historic speech at Gettysburg, P.A. today. Be inspired. America can be great again if we the people stand up again! Make your voice heard! Stand up for what is right. Let's make America great again.
Lately I have literally had a struggle with worry. My wise neighbor said "Suzie, if you pray there is no need to worry. If you worry there is no need to pray." She was totally right. I know this but needed to hear it. It is not cool how sometimes the mess of life just keeps dumping on ya and you let it pile up to where you allow yourself to be buried alive in worry instead of letting the junk life dumps bounce off.
Philippians 4:6-76 Don’t worry about anything; on the contrary, make your requests known to God by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving. 7 Then God’sshalom ( peace), passing all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with the Messiah Yeshua. ( Jesus)
In line 7 it says, then God's Shalom ( His peace ) will keep our hearts and our minds in perfect peace. It is a peace that in the mist of troubles it should not match the troubles at hand. It should pass all natural understanding. When the world says worry, we should in fact be doing the very opposite. We really need to relax in Him! Why do we struggle so much in this!
Psalm 9:9-109 (8) He will judge the world in righteousness;
he will judge the peoples fairly.
10 (9) Adonai is a stronghold for the oppressed,
a tower of strength in times of trouble.
I know this one thing. God is the strong tower for sure! He is reliable, dependable, trust worthy. If God's got your back then why worry! People let us down but God never ever will. One of the things I do to bring myself back into balance and into peace is to imagine I am walking up to the throne of God. I take the problem or person in my hands and carry it with me. I lay it, what ever it is, at his feet. I then say to God I can not do this, I can not fix this. You do it God because you see the end. You see the in between. You know the answers. Help me! Take care of this. Then I imagine myself walking away. I leave it there at his feet to do with it what he will. If I start to worry then I am saying God is not capable? SAY WHAT. God is capable, he is God!
Here is more great verses on worry.
Worrying is like saying God I do not trust you.
Something else I truly do suggest is walk out or act out your trusting God has got it by doing something for you. Relax. When you are overwhelmed do something to rest. I like to retreat to my back yard and lay or swing in my hammock. You can get a hammock like mine byclicking here if you want one! I love laying in my hammock safely suspended in air. It comforts me and makes me feel totally relaxed as I am praying or reading. This hammock has been a true blessing to me during this very stressful phase of my life. It was so easy to put up & is easy to clean. It is super strong too yet so very comfy, which you need comfy when relaxing. Amen!
What helps you to relax?

This is perfect for these cooler Fall evenings.
RECIPE NUTRITION INFORMATION PER SERVING (Serves 6)
Productivity. Time management. Balance. Have you ever struggled with these things? Peace in a busy life? I know I have. The struggle is real. I want to share with you a journey I am on right now and for those struggling as well I invite you to join me.
I at times for various reasons need to tweek my evenings and mornings. How I spend my evening can in fact affect the start of my next day. How I start my mornings can indeed affect the rest of my day. I have a lot going on these days to do and keep up with. I highly admire Crystal at MoneySavingMom and when I saw she has a course to help fine tune my evening I was super excited to hear what she had to say.
I am first doing the 14 day Make Over Your Evenings course because before you have a morning you must have a night right! So far I am on day 5 and simply loving it so far. No matter where you are as a stay at home mom or a working woman her tips are valuable. It will help you completely tweek & repair an off balance evening and morning. The steps I have taken so far via the course have already greatly improved my evenings I am so excited to see the rest of the fruit as I learn and apply this course information.
Rather than me give you tips myself when I myself have a broken system, I think as a blogger part of our job is when you do not know all the answers you find those who do know. Well Crystal has this down pat.
Her call to actions are practical. Not so far fetched that no one but a imaginary super mom could attain it. Everyone can achieve these practical course challenges. These courses are so flexible. You can log in and download the work book to your tablet or print the workbooks. If your really in a hurry just watching her short informational videos will really open your eyes. I like doing the workbook and watching the videos together.
Healthy time management does not have to be scary or a thing that we only dream of. Breaking old habits and making new healthier ones are attainable. What I am liking best about this course is she breaks down the steps in to bite size daily 15 minute chunks. It is not to much information to do all at once. Matter of fact I have actually taken two days for some of the new habit projects to really stew over it and get it. The course you work at your own pace. You want change to be more productive in a good way not an over worked stressed way. You don't want just great information you learn then never act upon it saying to your self I know I should I know I should but don't! If you really do it and act on the daily small activities you can master a more productive, organized life. You can achieve better time management. Really how you end your day and how you start it will affect the in between. So join me on this journey! Let me know how your doing with your evenings & mornings below.
Ok so those of you who have followed me a while know I love the Dollar Tree. Well I wanted a cheap, fast, easy wreath idea for 2016 and this is what I came up with. Maybe it is not as lovely as all the fantastic crafting you see on Pinterest but it did exactly what I wanted it to do! It took five minutes, required no glue, costs only four to make it. I bought two of everything so I could make one for my sweet neighbor.
All you need from the Dollar Tree:
So you take the leaf garland and you weave it in the wreath. Make sure to tuck in deep slots of the wreath your plain parts of the vine. This will hold the garland on the wreath with no glue needed.
Save your metal twist ties off the packages to anchor down your looser spots of the vine on the wreath.
Take your scarecrow or raven picks and place them into the wreath. Once placed how you want them towards the bottom break off the picks stick that over hangs. It is very easy.
Take your fall ribbon and use it for your hanger. Just cut as much as you want and tie at very top. I did not want it fancy but kept it simple. I am not good at making bows anyways. If you tie up the wire ribbon it will hold the wreath up very well.
Five minutes. No glue. No skills needed. And at only four dollars to make I think this is super cute to rock any budget this Fall.
Turkey Kabobs are a great low fat meal option for anyone! You can use Jennie-O boneless turkey breast tenderloins as your source of protein in the kabobs. This is a great meat that is all natural, low in fat, low sodium. You typically would not think of using turkey on a kabob but why not! It is truly fantastic. I love the clean taste.
I put my kabobs in foil with a little olive oil, salt, pepper & garlic seasoning. Very simple but a great flavor! Use what ever seasoning you like. Bake on 380 for 55 minutes. Or you can place these foil packets of yumminess in your slow cooker to have dinner on a busy weekday night! Arriving home to a nice cooked meal is so easy. You won't even have to wash the pot if you have the individual foil packets!

One day I had some time to myself. I wanted to explore and visit a place in my city I have not yet visited. Here is Raleigh resides the last 18th century water- powered grist mill in Wake county. This mill was established before the Revolutionary war. Yates Mill historic park is free to visit 7 days a week from 8 a.m - Sunset. Tours of inside the mill are available too during certain times. When I visited the mill was not open but that was ok because there was plenty of beauty to behold.
There is a museum at Yates Mill that shares the history of Yates Mill and how the mill works.
Yate Mill brings nature indoors and shows specimens upclose. At first it scared me when I opened the drawers but I got over it as I had always wanted to see these birds up close. I love bird watching!
With lots of history comes lots of artifacts. A lot of what is on display is items found around the mill from the past buried treasures for us to see later!
They have a kids play area with dress up items for period dress up from the Yate Mill opening era. They have toys for the little ones too. I love the cozy spot they provided with rocking chairs for adults to sit and relax as you watch the kids play.
I love the view from the large porch that looks out over the water at the mill. You can go and sit outside on the porch in the rocking chairs and relax for as long as you want. I took the time to just sit , crochet and talk to Jesus while there. I felt as if I was on a mini vacation away from the city.
The view of the old loved mill is stunning from the porch.
There is a trail going around the mill you can walk at it's 1.0 mile distance it is an easy trail to endure but so lovely & worth the stroll.
Here is the water source that powered & still does power the mill, called Millpond.
I loved peeking under the old mill. There was so much to see around the mill to take in. You must visit to see for yourself.
I absolutely love this view of the mill next to it's water source.
This trail is also a animal refuge. The view is simply stunning as you walk around the Millpond. So peaceful.
I love all the piers with free viewers you can look through and explore.
I sat on this pier and read a good book as I listened to nature.
When you finish the trail it brings you back to the back porch. I am so glad I got off my normal routine and took time to get out and explore because this retreat day was fabulous. What a diamond this park is and at the price of free it has it arms wide open to you, to warmly welcome our citizens of Wake to come home to the Mill and share. The mill was a place in the day even after it closed that families gathered around on weekend and shared meals & stories. The park has done a great job making this place cozy for people to come yet again & again to get rest from the city.
This park offers so many programs for the public. From organized groups to general public. They have events through out the year as well. Check them out!

Recently Faithbox sent me a monthly Faithbox to try out and give you my thoughts on the company. I love monthly subscription services period so I thought this would be great! Monthly boxes are just so fun to get goodies that are themed out aren't they?! Well what better way to get one than supporting a company that gives back to helping ethical small businesses across the globe and helping to feed hungry children at the same time. You just can't go wrong. When I interviewed Faithbox here is what they had to say below.
Mission Statement : We, at Faithbox, are a Christian company that has a heart for furthering the kingdom of God and wants to bring joy by introducing great products from companies that give back and do good. With each box or devotional purchased, three meals are provided to hungry kids all over the world through our partnership with Rice Bowls.
I couldn't believe what all came in my box! The book alone was worth the price and the fact they are helping to feed kids to boot & you get all these extras just blew me away.
What is even more amazing is the message of encouragement they send you each month. This months topic was loneliness. It was right on time for me. I was so uplifted & encouraged by the resources provided. Not only that, they also encouraged me to reach out to others whom God may place on my heart that might be lonely too. The overview was awesome because it explains in detail the items mission for the month!
The Stitch was very interesting. You take the orange string and sew it into your garment to show awareness of child molestation. It is to represent the vast majority of kids under age 18 whom have been sexually abused but hide and never tell anyone. It is to encourage kids to speak up!
Organic Raw Cacao for Espresso shots! Woot!
Lysa Terkeurst's book Uninvited. Living loved when you feel less than, left out, and lonely. And the faithbox uninvited everyday faith devotional. O yeah!
These are lovely quality note cards to encourage others. I am so excited they provided these to use these for outreach.
In doing good, let us not fail. Gal 6:9

I highly recommend FaithBox. These would even make fabulous gifts that just keep on giving all the way around.
These days as my kids are growing up they are not at home a lot of nights. That leaves me eating dinner alone. I like to have left overs for another meal. So this little one pot wonder is great for that or for serving 2 for dinner.
Now let me tell you about the new pot I am using from Waxonware! This 3 quart size pot is perfect for so many small meals. The stone green pan is natural and eco-friendly sauce pan is a healthy & natural eco friendly option.
What is amazing about this pot is it is cadmium free, no lead, no PFOA! Nonstick is the trick to win my heart as well , this pan is perfect.
The handle is even made of oven safe silicone so you can bake with this in the oven. Sweet if you ask me. I love items that can serve a duel purpose.
After testing this pot out a few times it goes down in my kitchen history as one of my all time favorites and believe me I have tried a lot of pot and pans!
When I review, only the BEST products that I LOVE earn my Seal of Approval! View past reviews in my Product Review category
