DAY 18–The Joy of Juicing!


This was really good. I made it for my friend Cassi the other day when she dropped by. It was amazing! Really. Almost too good. Which means it was very sweet. It made me wish I had dropped a few more veggies into the juicer. Perhaps, a sweet potato and a yellow bell pepper? Maybe a yellow squash or a romaine heart? Can you tell I’m thinking like an artist? I’m choosing vegetables that won’t alter the beautiful color :)


I used:

1 whole pineapple, minus the peel and green top.

3 tangerines, peeled

1/2 inch ginger root

Oops! I forgot.

1 red bell pepper, whole.


I can hardly believe it’s been 18 days! I’m finding a lot of joy in juicing. Here are just a few things that come to mind.

#1 I feel energetic and enthusiastic all day long.

#2 Juice is satisfying. I never feel hungry. I’m pretty sure my insides are giving me a standing ovation for the interior cleanse.

#3 Yesterday, I was able to wear a new pair of jeans that I’ve never been close to zipping. It was pretty cool.

If your overweight, unhealthy or not feeling good. You might want to consider rebooting your system by committing to a juice fast for a period of time. I so happy I did. To find out more visit

Thanks for stopping by and for all the prayers and well wishes . I no it’s not all that exciting to read about and I won’t blame you for avoiding my blog for a little while. It’s just something I’ve needed to do for a long time and haven’t been able to stick with anything.

Juicing has been so agreeable and pleasant that I must say, it feels like a miracle. Writing  and sharing about it helps too. Like fanning a flame. So thanks again for your interest and patience. I hope in the near future to be painting again and I wont be surprised if my art improves as well.

In the mean time, I’m blown away that this once upon a time sugar fairy hasn’t had as much as a chocolate chip in 18 days. Perhaps more amazing is that I haven’t even wanted one.


Praise God! He is so good to help me. A few people, just trying to be sweet have said, 'give yourself a little credit. The truth is, we all know ourselves all too well and when we are suddenly able to do something we’ve never been able to do, we’re wise to thank the One who deserves our praise.  

I’m a happy girl…and it’s not just because I’m feeling great and losing weight. It’s because I  am loved! Unconditionally. It’s because I’ve been forgiven of every disgusting, mean and evil thing I’ve ever done. I am so grateful for God’s goodness, delivered through His precious son Jesus. Who I love and trust with all my heart, soul and mind. We go back a long way. I haven’t always known Him but He’s always known me. Watching, listening and whispering in the quiet of the night His love for me. Hoping I will hear and believe Him. Hoping I will trust Him. I haven’t always, but I do now. He has saved me from disaster and heart wrenching pain, countless times. He has cleaned me up and mended my broken heart. He helped me to forgive those who hurt me. I am a new creature. Redeemed by Christ. Living life abundantly because of Him. Praise God, forever and ever.
