On days that you need some uplifting, nothing beats comfort food. And for many people, their top favorites include baked potatoes. The next time you crave for its cheesy goodness, why not bake one yourself. You can even make it extra special by baking it twice and adding some broccoli! For this recipe, the potato […]

A YEAR OF LENT!

Lent is normally Associated w/Catholicism. I am a Former Catholic. I am now a Non-Denominational (Born-Again) Christian. I have been since January of 2002. However I still Practice Lent every "Easter Season". The Idea and Point of Lent is that you Give-Up something for the 40-Days Leading to Easter. It's a way to Sacrifice something like the way that GOD Sacrificed HIS SON JESUS on the Cross for us. It also Helps Prepare our Hearts for Easter-Resurrection Sunday. I don't still Practice it out of Ritual/Habit/Unresolved Catholic Guilt. I do it just for the Reasons Listed above. For me Personally it's much like Communion. On Days when I know I'm going to be Receiving Communion at Church; I Fast all Day. It allows me to spend the Day TRULY Focusing on CHRIST. The Time I would Spend Eating I can instead spend in Deep Prayer & Mediation. While I Pray & Meditate Daily; this is Extra Time spent w/GOD in Addition to my Regular Prayer & Meditation Time.

This Year was Different though.......

Well for me it started out w/Lent (40-Days) this Past February. I gave up Classic Coca~Cola for Lent. I was Drinking 3-4 Cans a Day; that's 21-28 Cans a Week. Which didn't Include if I went out somewhere to Eat. I was Hoping that it would help me to give it up altogether or at the very Least once Lent was over it would Cut-Back my Intake of Coke a Great Deal. Well I am Proud & Thankful to say that since Lent has Ended I still haven't Drank a Single Sip of Coke since February of 2016; PTL!!!

GOD had Placed a Challenge on my Heart to do a Year of Lent. So what that means is that every 40-Days for a Year I will be giving up Something Up or maybe I'll do something New for 40-Days?! All the while keeping the Focus on CHRIST.

So for my 2nd 40-Days of Lent (Which I started the Day after Easter) I Decided to Give up Fast Food. I haven't had any Fast Food since the Day Before Easter; which was 5-Guys. For me that's HUGE! I Eat Fast Food a MINIUM of 3-5 Days a Week; usually more. It has not been easy. I truly LOOOOOVE Fast Food. Between giving up BOTH the Coke & Fast Food w/out really Dieting or Exercising I've noticed a Weight Loss. I Noticed it earlier this Week; my Jean Shorts were Loose around my Waist. It's also Saved me a lot of Money. Unlike the Coke I don't Plan on giving up Fast Food Forever. But I do Plan on having it as a Treat every now and then and not a near daily thing.

I haven't Decided what I'm giving up for my 3rd-40 Days of Lent yet?! I was Thinking of maybe going Gluten Free for 40-Days? I am Praying on it. I'm Open to ideas and Suggestions?! And of course Prayers are ALWAYS Appreciated!!!

Every Year instead of New Years Resolutions I do a "Word of the Year" and a "Bible Verse of the Year" that goes along with the "Word of the Year". My Word of the Year for 2016 is PRAYER! And my Bible Verse of the Year for 2016 is:

“Pray without Ceasing;” 1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:17‬ ‭NASB

I feel this Year-Long 40-Days of Lent GOD has Placed on my Heart truly Aline's w/both my Word & Bible Verse of the Year.

Do you have a Word and or Bible Verse of the Year? If yes what is it/are they for 2016? What Challenges is GOD Currently Placing on your Heart? Are you being Obedient or are you Fighting against it? It's ok to Struggle; even down right Fail. The Important thing is NOT to Give-Up!

May 1, 1999 I was 26 Years Old. It was my Dads 66th Birthday (Today he Turns 83!). It was the Day after my Oldest Nephew +Eddie Livengood's 5th Birthday (He Turned 22 Yesterday!). Eddie LOOOOOVED SpongeBob SquarePants. One of his ABSOLUTE Favorites! He had a SpongeBob SquarePants Themed Birthday Party one Year and got a HUGE SpongeBob SquarePants Folding Chair that he LOVED as well. I can't Believe that was 17 Years ago?! It seems like it was only Yesterday.......
 
On this day:
At 1st May of 1999, the first episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants" aired on Nickelodeon. "SpongeBob SquarePants" is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. The series chronicles the adventures and endeavors of the title character and his various friends in the fictional underwater city of Bikini Bottom. The series' popularity has made it a media franchise, as well as the highest rated series to ever air on Nickelodeon, and the most distributed property of MTV Networks. The media franchise has generated $8 billion in merchandising revenue for Nickelodeon.

1999, many great cartoon shows premiered that year. Like "Ed, Edd n Eddy"; "Courage the Cowardly Dog"; "Futurama", and of course a certain sea-sponge who lives in a pineapple and works at a fast food restaurant. Stephen Hillenburg's "SpongeBob SquarePants" which aired on Nickelodeon and is still running to this day. 

The show takes place underwater. The main character, SpongeBob, is a talking sponge, who works as a fry cook for Mr. Krabs, the greedy owner of the Krusty Krab. He also works with his depressing and more sophisticated next door neighbor, Squidword Tentacles, who is constantly annoyed by SpongeBob's crazy, stupid antics. SpongeBob's other neighbor and long-life best friend, Patrick Star, is a talking pink starfish that maybe the most stupid character ever. 

There is also Plankton, a tiny but evil character that is jealous of Mr. Krab's restaurant and always is trying to steal his formula for the sacred Krabby Patty, but he always ends up failing miserably. Then there is Sandy Cheeks, a squirrel that for some reason lives underwater in a space-suit. Sandy befriends SpongeBob and Patrick and loves to do exciting things with them. are these not the most ridiculous characters.

You might be thinking, this sounds stupid. Well it is stupid, thats the beauty of the show. The premise is so ridiculous that anything can happen. None of the episodes ever continue the story and plot of the previous episode. Its a cartoon. Every new episode starts a new story. And the story lines of the episodes are just sometimes ridiculous, but the characters in the show are so good that everything works. 

The lessons SpongeBob learned in the series weren't executed in a cheesy way, and were often what led to classic musical numbers. Like when SpongeBob learns that he shouldn't try to get people to like him with cheap jokes (like ripping his pants). Or when SpongeBob spends time with the Krusty Krab's tiny jealous enemy Plankton and Plankton mangles the meaning of friendship. And when Squidward finally lets himself trust others when he wants to impress his high school rival Squilliam. 

The show has a hilarious execution of karma, too. Because Squidward does occasionally show remorse and guilt, he's sympathetic. But that doesn't mean it isn't funny how he's often the punchline of the joke. For example, Spongebob may step outside and greet the flowers with a big smile. But when Squidward comes out and barely musters a grunt, the flowers scare him back into his house. Later in that same episode Squidward ignores Spongebob while riding his bike and tells himself 'remember your karma', but then immediately flies off the bike, falls off a cliff and explodes. 

The humor isn't exactly like Looney Tunes because it's more reliant on dialogue, although the influence is clearly there, what with the emphasis on exaggerated expressions at key moments. Like SpongeBob's smug grin when he realizes Squidward likes Krabby Patties. There are also the clever little jokes. Like when there's supposedly a sad or touching moment going on between SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs and there's a close up of Squidward crying, but then it zooms out and there are hot onions next to him, and that isn't really the punchline because it's too obvious. 

There's also the episode with the talent show where Squidward is so egotistical that he doesn't have a clue how ridiculous his dancing is, which is clearly inspired by 'Showbiz Bugs'. It's easy to see their love for the classics, something that is rarely seen nowadays in American animation.

The series has won a variety of awards, including six Annie Awards, eight Golden Reel Awards, two Emmy Awards, 12 Kids' Choice Awards, and two BAFTA Children's Awards. Despite its widespread popularity, the series has been involved in several public controversies, including one centered on speculation over SpongeBob's intended sexual orientation, and another focusing on the perceived declining quality of the show's content since the release of the first film. 

In 2011, a newly described species of mushroom, Spongiforma squarepantsii, was named after the cartoon's title character. A feature film, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, was released in theaters on November 19, 2004, and a sequel was released on February 6, 2015. 

There is stupid comedy in SpongeBob, but there is also a lot of jokes and situations that only adults can understand. There is dark humor and even some witty jokes. Sometimes you will even see some references to pop-culture events. Kids will enjoy the silly stuff when adults and teens will enjoy some of the other jokes. This cartoon is unique because its a kids cartoon but all the main characters are full-grown adults. Yes there sea creatures but they are grown-ups. Watch SpongeBob Squarepants! Any age can find humor in the show.

Bragging rights
I can't Brag about my Love for GOD because I Fail HIM Daily, but I can Brag about HIS Love for me because it never Fails. Poem: When I Say, I Am A Christian............ When I say, “I am a Christian” I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!” I’m whispering, “I get lost sometimes That’s why I chose this way” When I say, “I am a Christian” I don’t speak with human pride I’m confessing that I stumble - needing God to be my guide When I say, “I am a Christian” I’m not trying to be strong I’m professing that I’m weak and pray for strength to carry on When I say, “I am a Christian” I’m not bragging of success I’m admitting that I’ve failed and cannot ever pay the debt When I say, “I am a Christian” I don’t think I know it all I submit to my confusion asking humbly to be taught When I say, “I am a Christian” I’m not claiming to be perfect My flaws are far too visible but God believes I’m worth it When I say, “I am a Christian” I still feel the sting of pain I have my share of heartache which is why I seek God’s name When I say, “I am a Christian” I do not wish to judge I have no authority I only know I’m loved Copyright 1988 Carol Wimmer https://www.facebook.com/whenisayiamachristian http://whenisayiamachristian.tumblr.com http://pinterest.com/whenisaypoem/when-i-say-i-am-a-christian
