Dance Exercise to Burn Calories

Dancing is a fun way to burn excess calories - and to maybe even shed unwanted weight and inches. Again, some professionally guided cardio dance moves may require your doctor's approval. So, check with your physician before starting any dance or exercise routine

The first video I have selected below is for seniors; however, I got winded following along with her, and I'm pretty active myself. This coach from Silver Sneakers is one healthy senior! Once again, some of the moves may be too awkward for you as they were for me, so just keep moving and clap your hands or snap your fingers if that happens. 

I've also included a sit and dance video from Coach Alexis. So, if your balance isn't the best, but you're determined to move, this will be a good one for you with your doctor's blessings of course. And just because you're sitting doesn't mean it's easy! Ms. Alexis knows the right moves to make this challenging, bring on the heat, and maybe even some perspiration. Just follow along the best you can. 

Whichever way is easier for you, trust me, you're going to get a good workout that will make you feel good about yourself, reduce anxiety, and promote healthy thoughts. But more than anything, have fun! Use these new moves when you're listening to your favorite music. 

For inspiration, I encourage you to keep practicing until you're able to finish these dance routines and get every move perfect. Then find a new video to learn some new moves from.

Love Never Fails

 After Saul (Paul) was converted from Judaism, in which he was a trained priest, to Christianity on the road to Damascus, he spent a few years learning how to be a better person for God's new work in Christ. After God prepared him, Paul started preaching the Good News to people in different cities. One of those cities was Corinth in Greece. When Paul needed to correct - or praise - some teachings of the churches that were established in these cities but couldn't get back to them right away, he would write them letters. One of these letters (often called epistles) is called I Corinthians in the Holy Bible.  The message I want to bring to your attention today is what Paul was telling this church about love. He told them in verse 16:14 to, " Do everything with love. " (NLT) The NKJV read as, " Let all that you do be done with love. " What a difference we could make in the world if we could all follow this beautiful advice.  In the same Book of I Corinthians 13:

Vinegar to Remove Sticker Residue

My first vinegar cleaning test involved removing an old sticker and the residue that was on the bottom of a very old glass pitcher. I've had the pitcher in my possession for about 5 years and have no idea the full age of this pitcher. So, it seemed like a good item to try the sticker/residue removal test. In my head, the sticky residue is a germ catcher not to mention a plain old eye sore, so I actually try to get rid of that residue as soon as I remove any sticker myself. The idea is to remove goo from stickers, bumper stickers, labels, decals, etc. by repeatedly wiping with vinegar. So, first, I sprayed vinegar onto the sticker/residue section of the pitcher. I let it sit for about 5 minutes then scrubbed the section with a paper towel and my nail. The sticker part came off rather easily with some umph. I sprayed more vinegar onto the residue that remained and let it stand for another 5 minutes. With a hard push with my nail over the paper towel, most of the residue came off. So
