Butter Cups

My tips for you who like butter, is to get the dairy free kind. I usually use the one with sunflower. It taste as good if not better than regular butter. Some are tastier than other though... I had to try a few different brands until i found the ones i liked the best. Trying to stay away from milk as much as possible.


Often your tasks will be many, 
And more than you think you can do. 
Often the road will be rugged
And the hills insurmountable, too. 
But always remember, 
The hills ahead
Are never as steep as they seem, 
And with Faith in your heart
Start upward
And climb 'til you reach your dream. 
For nothing in life that is worthy
Is ever too hard to achieve
If you have the courage to try it, 
And you have the faith to believe. 
For faith is a force that is greater
Than knowledge or power or skill, 
And many defeats turn to triumph
If you trust in God's wisdom and will. 
For faith is a mover of mountains, 
There's nothing that God cannot do, 
So, start out today with faith in your heart, 
And climb 'til your dream comes true!

Renewed Room

godiz - this is how the tiny little room ended up looking like after it was done. Comparing to what it looked like before (disaster) it's now at least livable. We also put up a flat screen TV and added/removed a few small details later. Note! never rent out your place/room to anyone if they're not mature enough to keep it in the same condition they got it in. I think my sister learned a lesson and i did as well.


Bible Study: My soul is full of troubles. (Ps. 88:33) There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it (1 Cor. 10:13).  Caregiver, coach, cook, counselor, chaplain, chauffeur, special events coordinator, ever ready to inspire other toward excellence, wellness and faith - these are descriptions to which many of us can relate. Trying to be all things to all people has left us high on intentions but low on energy. How do we juggle the roles, relationships, requests, and life requirements that vie continuously for our attention and response?  Covenant with God to be open to anxiety, frustration, and trouble. The situations are divinely orchestrated mentors to our souls. Give thanks for the conversion of obstacles into opportunities for growth, and receive the resilience inherent in God's grace. Operate out of what's important instead of what's urgent. Beware of poor planning and personal or organizational needs hiding behind the mask of urgency. Immediacy plus availability plus ability doesn't equal obligation. Ask God to order your involvement and concentrate on what matters in the eternal scheme of things.  Purpose in your heart to recall previous victories and determine to display godly character toward yourself and others as you scale the currently "insurmountable." Avoid the cling of "legitimate" anger by showing courage, justice, and compassion. Engage with whom and in what confirms your God-derived destiny. Every decision either advances or retards fulfillment. Coping is the language of transition. When the tomorrow you long for today comes, may it find you strong in faith, wiser in life, and more sensitive to the voice of God than you are right now. Psalm 88. KJV

Poor Life

godiz - I was walking my dogs and saw that they are tearing down all the trees (re-buildng) in our courtyard. It kind of saddened me :-'( especially now when everything finally is growing back to life. They better use them for something. Poor trees.


godiz - you can also find me on twitter if you tweet, i don't use it often but at times @godizcandy

NBA Dynamic Duo Faves

godiz - the somewhat underrated duo! David Robinson & Tim Duncan, my personal favorites. 
Timmy D. is still on top of my list...
I don't have a fave team anymore only favorite players, but Let's go SPURS!

Who's is your favorite dynamic duo?
(listed and un-listed/past & present)

Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Magic and Kareem teamed up to win five NBA Championships in the '80s (1980, 1982, 1985, 1987, 1988) as the Lakers reached the NBA Finals eight times in the 10 seasons between 1979-80 and 1988-89. 

Larry Bird and Kevin McHale: Larry Bird and Kevin McHale led the Celtics back to glory, winning three NBA Championships in the 1980s (1981, 1984 and 1986) with two more trips to the NBA Finals (1985 and 1987) during their playing days together

Bill Russell and Bob Cousy:
Russell and Cousy helped built the Boston Celtics dynasty of the '50s and '60s. As Russell held down the defensive end, Cousy ran the offense leading the league in assists for eight consecutive seasons. The two teamed up for six NBA Championships before Cousy retired; Russell would go on to win five more. 

Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen: Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and their Bulls teammates dominated the '90s as Chicago "three-peated" two times during the decade, winners of six of the eight championships from 1991-98 against five different Western Conference teams. 

Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson: In 1970-71, Abdul-Jabbar, then Lew Alcindor, and Robertson led the Bucks to a league-best 66 wins before going 12-2 in the playoffs and defeating Baltimore for the team's only NBA Title. 

John Stockton and Karl Malone: Stockton, the NBA's all-time assists leader, and Malone, who ranks second all-time on the NBA's career scoring list, spent 18 seasons honing their pick-and-roll, making the playoffs every year they played together and reaching the Western Conference Finals five times in a seven-year stretch. 

Julius Erving and Moses Malone: The 1983 Sixers racked up a 65-17 regular-season record before going an NBA-best 12-1 in the playoffs. Malone uttered the classic "Fo', fo', fo'," when asked how the Sixers would fare in the playoffs. This duo nearly delivered as the team swept New York, beat Milwaukee in five and defeated the L.A. Lakers in four straight. 

Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant: Shaq and Kobe gave to Tinseltown what the Showtime Lakers never could: A dynasty. Behind O'Neal and Bryant, the Lakers three-peated from 2000-02 to become only the fourth team in the history of the NBA to win three or more consecutive titles. 

Tim Duncan and David Robinson: In 1996-97, before Tim Duncan's arrival and with David Robinson out with injury, the Spurs managed only 20 victories. In Duncan's rookie season the club set a record for the largest single season turnaround, winning 56 games. The two would go on to win two NBA Championships (1999 and 2003). 

Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars: Thomas and Dumars teamed in the backcourt for the "Bad Boys" of Detroit, a group of physical, gritty players who would use suffocating defense on their way to back-to-back NBA Championships in 1989 and 1990.
