Solutions Health & Pregnancy Walk for Life

Today was the annual Solutions
Health and Pregnancy Center's

This is the center in Red Bank NJ

The do such wonderful work.
I have been supporting them in their efforts for years.

They have the annual Walk

The Baby Bottle Boomerang and every year a lovely
banquet fundraiser. With terrific food and wonderful speakers.
The walk is held down at the Jersey Shore in Belmar.
We walk the boardwalk. Just a lovely view.
Perfect weather today. Cool and sunny !
 The ocean looked so nice.

This is my Aunt in green and friend Lorraine with her.
They served hot dogs, chili, chips and cookies.
So good!
If you were able to raise $ 200 plus dollars
you receive a free t-shirt
Every year a co-worker of mine who is a Pastor's wife, Kathy
comes and does face painting, balloon animals and games
for the children. They have a blast.
This is Lorie and her husband.
I use to attend the same church as them.
In fact that is where I was saved and baptised.
Lorie is the director at Solutions and has
done a fantastic job all these years.

They recently got certified as a medical
clinic which is almost unheard of.
They have a doctor on staff who can
do sonograms. It helps the pregnant
Mom's make informed decisions.
And I believe has deterred some to
have abortions.
This is my group of gals.
Me, Pat, Lorraine and my Aunt Rose.

Blessed to have the opportunity to serve in this way.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."  Jeremiah 1:5

One of my blogger friends,  Linda at
Truthful Tidbits - Bit and Pieces of My Life
(Check out Linda's blog she is an amazing poet)
 mentioned an Apple Crisp break hah
Well, she got me thinking and motivated.
So I gave it a try and found an easy recipe
on line.  I have never made it before and
as many of you know the kitchen is not
my best area. But I love to try.


It was pretty yummy.
My husband who is my biggest critic hah
He will never tell a lie.
He is "don't ask me if you don't want to hear the truth" guy hah
Well, after his first bite I heard, "Yum, this is pretty good"

Thanks Linda, you helped me make my hubby smile ; )

Thankful to be a blessing !

Glad to be used by the Lord today to be a blessing.
Our dear friend Shelly has been really struggling
this year with health problems.

She has been in and out of the hospital and
rehab on and off since January. She is having
great difficulty walking on her own.
Still doesn't really have a firm diagnosis.

Her hubby is 85, 15 years older then her and
he is not so well either.  Very hard for them
trying to take care of each other.
She longs to get out of the house and live again.

Since my hubby had his Men's Retreat today
I thought it would be the perfect day to visit
Shelly and lift her spirits. She lives about 45
minutes south of us.

Shelly loves Bobby Flay and because
of her health concerns she is not able
to drive up to our area and try his burger joint.

So my Auntie and I made a pit stop
and loaded up with burgers, fries and onion rings.

Here are a few photos from Bobby's Burger Palace.

Shell and Jim both really enjoyed the food and we had a
delightful afternoon of talking and visiting.
I think we made her day and lifted her spirits !

Here is a photo of Shell and Jim from about a year ago.

Bobby's Burger Palace is at our local Mall.
Had time to run into Macy's and use my coupon !

Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? 2 Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.

Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.
Philippians 2

So brave and faithful.

I mature in my faith.

The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide
that you are not going to stay where you are
