Sun dried tomatoes and canned or bottled tomato products (such as tomato paste, sauce, soups, juice, ketchup, and tomato based chili or hot sauces) are all concentrated sources of lycopene.
Other produce rich in lycopenes (think deep red or pink) include watermelon (which actually contains more lycopene than tomatoes!), purple grapes, pink or red grapefruit, apricots, plums, red bell peppers, papaya, and guava. Next on the grocery list are foods rich in betacarotene, another antioxidant that has natural sunscreen properties. Other betacarotene rich foods include sweet potatoes, apricots, squash, pumpkins, papaya, and mango (think deep orange pigment). Looking for more foods providing sun protection?  Eat some walnuts, which are high in essential fatty acids, which may also protect against sunburn. Finally, look to foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which is a natural anti-inflammatory that may also protect against sunburn and cellular damage that can lead to skin cancer. So if you are heading out in the sun, why not have a glass of orange juice and grapefruit topped with strawberries for breakfast, a leafy green spinach salad with mushrooms and tomato juice for lunch, almonds or walnuts for a snack, and salmon with kale for dinner?

Sloppy Joe's are a perennial childhood favorite, but the canned version lacks depth of flavor. This recipe is versatile, and can be made into a sloppy Joe stew or soup; see notes for these instructions. This is a topic near and dear to me, as I want to see all our families succeed on the Healthy Kids Program. For us to exert the significant effort required to achieve our goals they must be compelling; we must truly believe they are worth the time and effort.
We are forty-two percent more likely to achieve a goal if we write it down.  So, write it down to make it happen!
Christmas is the perfect time for gratitude, and it is something we can actively promote in our children.
A study on the impact of gratitude published in the Journal of School Psychology looked at more than 200 middle school students, and found that those students that wrote down five things they were grateful for each day for two weeks had higher levels of optimism, increased life satisfaction, and decreased negative feelings.
Because children learn best by observation and repetition, an attitude of gratitude can start with YOU! For kids, the weeks leading up to Christmas is often about focusing on what they want and don’t have. Turkey Pot Pie Is A Great Thanksgiving Leftover, But Chicken Pot Pie Is Good Comfort Food, Too! And since this recipe was originally for chicken pot pie, you can make a  chicken pot pie the rest of the year by simply substituting 3 cups of cooked chicken for the turkey.
This includes a recipe link for a homemade crust that is flaky and easy, but you can use refrigerated pie crust, or biscuits for topping. Now that food-focused holidays are fast approaching, here are some tips for helping picky eaters and reducing mealtime stress. Be sure there are one or two items on the table that your child will enjoy, but do not cater to the picky eater (this could be bread and butter, milk, corn, etc.). If the thought of eating with all the grownups overwhelms your child, consider a kiddie table, but do not feed children before the big meal or serve them different food.
A great way to encourage children to enjoy the meal is to have them help prepare for the meal. A child that comes to the holiday table hungry (but not starving) is more likely to eat, so don't overdo the appitizers. While we normally recommend that children take one bite of all new foods served, avoid this at holiday meals. The unflappable 7-footer, admittedly unsatisfied with any performance short of perfection, is the unanimous winner of the NBA Rookie of the Year award, giving the Minnesota Timberwolves consecutive winners after Andrew Wiggins took the Eddie Gottlieb Trophy last season.
Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Karl-Anthony Towns celebrates after hitting the game-winning shot against the Portland Trail Blazers on April 9. The first pick in the 2015 draft out of Kentucky received all 130 first-place votes from a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters in the United States and Canada, joining Damian Lillard (2013), Blake Griffin (2011), David Robinson (1990) and Ralph Sampson (1984) as recent unanimous winners. Towns ranked eighth in the NBA in rebounds and field-goal percentage while producing the best debut for a big man since Tim Duncan in 1998. Minnesota is the first team with back-to-back winners of the award since Bob McAdoo (1973) and Ernie DiGregorio (1974) with the Buffalo Braves.
The only rookie in the league to start all 82 games, Towns was named Western Conference rookie of the month in all six months the award was handed out. The figurative wall that so many first-year players hit during a schedule more than twice as long as college never impeded his progress. Displaying the polish and poise of a veteran from the opening game of the season, Towns showed an elite ability to pass, rebound and score from both the paint and the 3-point line, giving the Timberwolves hope they've finally found the star they need to carry them out of the league's dregs.
With Towns, Wiggins, Zach LaVine, Ricky Rubio, Gorgui Dieng and Shabazz Muhammad to be coached next season by Tom Thibodeau, the Wolves believe they have the ingredients to finally reach the playoffs for the first time since 2004. Thibodeau and Towns have already spoken "a lot," according to the player whom the new coach has already begun to lean heavily on. Towns has spoken of his obsessive focus on excellence, and his appearance on the awards stage set up on the arena floor was the embodiment of this extremity in so many ways. Cool and confident in the spotlight, Towns brought an All-Star fashion presence to Monday's ceremony, wearing a black suit accessorized by a Prince-inspired silky purple pocket square and a long, lavender tie.
Deferential to the greater cause, Towns also brought a list of teammates, coaches, trainers and others to thank so as not to leave anyone out. Family-first Towns remembered his upbringing in New Jersey while speaking proudly of his father and sister and bringing his mother in the audience to tears.
Towns donated the Kia Sorento he received from the award's sponsor to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society in honor of former Timberwolves executive and coach Flip Saunders. The Minnesota Timberwolves will send Karl-Anthony Towns as their representative to the NBA draft lottery, hoping for the same fortune that brought them the NBA Rookie of the Year. This time, they'll have 88 of the 1,000 ping-pong balls in the hopper, for an 8.8 percent chance of landing the top spot again. Towns will wear one of the late Flip Saunders' wedding rings around his neck as a good luck charm at the suggestion of Saunders' son, Ryan, who wears it around his neck each day.
Saunders, Minnesota's former coach, died last October after a battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma.
The potential payoff comes on Tuesday, when the 76ers have the best chance to win the NBA draft lottery.
The LA Lakers and Boston Celtics, the NBA's most storied franchises, have the next-best odds of getting the No 1 pick and the chance to draft the type of player that could get them back to the lofty positions they used to occupy. But nobody is set up like the 76ers, who used to be regular winners themselves but have done nothing but lose - which seemed to be their plan - in recent years. The team with the worst record normally has a 25 percent chance of winning the lottery, but the Sixers' odds are even better. And there's more: If the Lakers don't remain in the top three, their selection would also go to Philadelphia, a pick the Lakers originally dealt to Phoenix for Steve Nash that the 76ers later acquired in another trade. The 14 teams that didn't make the playoffs go to the lottery, which sets the top three picks. The Lakers had the No 2 pick last year and are right back in the same spot in the lottery after going 17-65 in Kobe Bryant's final season. The Celtics were a 48-win playoff team who will take the Brooklyn Nets' spot on stage as part of the payment from the Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce trade in 2013.
The lottery debuted in 1985 when the Celtics, Lakers and 76ers were in the midst of claiming nine straight NBA championships, so any of them, with good history and strong fan bases, would be a welcome landing spot for this year's top talent. But they didn't have the worst record in either season and last year that proved particularly costly, with Minnesota cashing in its 25 percent chance and getting Karl-Anthony Towns, the Rookie of the Year who appears to be a franchise player.
It's unclear yet what the Sixers have, as they ended up with the No 3 pick both times and drafted Joel Embiid - who still hasn't played because of a foot injury - and Jahlil Okafor, who had some rocky times as a rookie. Nobody was beating Philadelphia to the bottom this season, after an 0-18 start and 28-game skid spanning the previous season sent the Sixers to a 10-72 finish that was barely better than the worst ever in an 82-game schedule. So they're in great position for a shot at LSU's Ben Simmons or Duke's Brandon Ingram - or perhaps one of them and another building block. Outside his team's locker room, Oklahoma City Thunder coach Billy Donovan received a round of hugs and celebratory handshakes for pulling off something no other team has done at Oracle Arena this postseason: win.
Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the rest of the Thunder dazzled in the fourth quarter the way the defending champion Golden State Warriors have done so many times this season on their home floor, rallying from 14 points down to notch a 108-102 victory in Game 1 of the Western Conference final on Monday night.
Golden State Warriors' Klay Thompson shoots between Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant (left), Steven Adams (12) and Serge Ibaka (9) during the second half of Monday's opening game of the NBA's Western Conference final in Oakland, California. Durant scored 26 points and made a key 17-foot jumper with 30.7 seconds left, while Westbrook scored 24 of his 27 points in the second half. Westbrook also had 12 assists and seven steals in the opener of OKC's fourth West final in six years. Steven Adams made a pair of free throws for Oklahoma City with 1:01 remaining, and Klay Thompson missed a reverse lay-in moments later at the other end.
MVP Stephen Curry had 26 points and a playoff career-high 10 rebounds, but the Warriors missed too many shots down the stretch. With his team down 105-102, Steve Kerr begged for a traveling call on Westbrook at midcourt with 17.2 seconds left, with the NBA Coach of the Year gesturing with his arms. Thompson scored 19 of his 25 points in the first half, but shot 3 for 10 over the last two quarters. Durant scored to get his team within 88-85 going into the final quarter, then knocked down a tying 3 just 12 seconds into the fourth.
Dion Waiters' layup at 10:30 put the Thunder ahead for the first time since the opening quarter. Durant, Serge Ibaka and Adams each had double-digit rebounds - a focal point for Golden State after the Warriors won 121-118 in overtime on Curry's long game-winner at Oklahoma City on Feb 27 despite being outrebounded 62-32. Curry was 9 for 22 from the field, including a 6-for-14 performance from beyond the arc, and committed seven turnovers to go with seven assists. He hit a 3-pointer in his 45th straight playoff game, breaking Reggie Miller's record set from 1995-2000. This marked the unanimous MVP's second straight start since coming off the bench in Game 4 against the Trail Blazers following a right knee sprain that still isn't 100 percent. It also marked the first playoff matchup between Oklahoma City and the Warriors, though Golden State lost a first-round series 3-1 to the franchise when it was the Seattle SuperSonics in 1992. In its first European final since losing to AC Milan in the 2007 Champions League, Liverpool is looking to quash the Spanish side's bid for an unprecedented third straight Europa League title at Basel's St. It brings Liverpool's journey through the competition under manager Jurgen Klopp to a thrilling climax, following dramatic wins over Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Villarreal in recent months. Liverpool's Emre Can salutes the crowd after the Reds beat Villarreal in the semifinal, second-leg match at Anfield on May 5. After seeing his side sink Villarreal brilliantly to reach the final, Klopp declared: "To go to a final you need a little bit of luck in decisive moments, but most of the time you need outstanding performances. Can wants to seize his chance in his first final with the club, but says a collective show of force will be required against the tough La Liga side. Five-time European champion Liverpool, which has also won the Europa League and its predecessor the UEFA Cup three times, has often provided drama on the European stage. In 2001, the Reds triumphed after a nine-goal thriller against Deportivo Alaves only after Delfi Geli scored a late own goal. Four years later, Liverpool staged arguably the greatest comeback in Champions League final history by overcoming a three-goal deficit at halftime to force AC Milan into extra time then penalty kicks, winning its fourth title 3-2 from the spot. After Milan took revenge with a 2-1 Champions League triumph in 2007, Liverpool now has the chance to silver-line an encouraging first season for Klopp at Anfield. With a Champions League spot also offered to Wednesday's winner, the German manager has pulled out all the stops. Sevilla may have the added pressure of facing Barcelona in the Spanish Cup final on Sunday, but coach Unai Emery insisted: "We have the chance to play two finals and, despite the difficulty our opponents will cause us, the team is determined and determined to enjoy it. Kevin Gameiro, Sevilla's top scorer this season with 28 goals including seven in eight Europa League outings, believes his side's past experiences will prove decisive.
He already owns losers' and winners' medals from Champions League finals, but as part of Bayern Munich's squad the 22-year-old did not even get to lace up his boots, in 2012 and 2013 respectively. A security contractor is being blamed by Manchester United for leaving a dummy bomb in Old Tafford stadium that caused the cancelation of Sunday's final Premier League game against Bournemouth. United vice-chairman Ed Woodward said the device had been left in error by a sub contractor following an exercise to train dog handlers at the stadium, after it was recorded as having been removed. The fake device, thought to consist of a mobile phone attached to a pipe, was discovered minutes before United and Bournemouth were due to take to the pitch and was safely detonated by bomb disposal experts. British media named the company that left the device in the stadium as Security Search Management and Solutions. Christopher Reid, owner of Security Search Management, told Sky News that he was "devastated" about what had happened. About 3,500 Bournemouth fans made the 500-mile round trip to Manchester to see their club's first league game at Old Trafford. It was United's second security scare of the week after its team bus was pelted with cans and bottles by West Ham United fans five days earlier.
In April, Chan led Eastern Sports Club to Hong Kong's Premier League championship for the first time in 21 years. Chan Yuen-ting (center), head coach of Eastern Sports Club, celebrates with her players after winning the Hong Kong Premier League title on May 7.
The title capped the 27-year-old Chan's debut season as head coach and earned her a Guinness World Record as the first female coach to win a men's championship title in a top regional league. Her path into the game started as a 13-year-old, when she began watching Manchester United games on TV and, in particular, England legend Beckham, whom she swooned over as "handsome". The schoolgirl crush soon developed into a love of the game itself, which eventually morphed into a soccer coaching career - despite opposition from her parents.
After playing amateur soccer for university teams and representing Hong Kong, Chan decided to take the coaching track so she could break into the men's professional game. She went from assistant coach to head coach at Eastern in December after her predecessor accepted an offer from a club on the China mainland.
Since then, she has set out to win the players' respect, spending hours dissecting match videos and statistics to demonstrate her deep knowledge of the game.
At a training session in Hong Kong, eagle-eyed Chan, dressed in a black tracksuit, took her place in the center of team passing drills and quietly watched, sometimes running alongside the players. Worried their daughter would have no future in soccer, they tried to persuade her to take up art or dancing. But, determined to pursue her Beckham-inspired career, Chan faked her mother's signature as a teenager to apply for a soccer training program. She studied geography at university, graduating in 2010, and went on to work as a data analyst at Hong Kong team Pegasus, where she was later hired as assistant coach.
As well as winning more titles with Eastern, she hopes to gain experience overseas with top clubs and bring that knowledge back to Hong Kong. The Hong Kong men's team stands at a lowly 155th in the world rankings and there are limited soccer facilities in the densely populated southern financial hub.
Despite difficulties, she said she is satisfied with her coaching role, which has become her year-round employment. Sidney Crosby wasn't sure Bryan Rust saw him, so the Pittsburgh Penguins captain gave his impromptu linemate a quick yell just to make sure. Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby (right) and Matt Cullen celebrate Crosby's winning goal in overtime of Monday's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final against the Tampa Bay Lightning at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh. A deft drop pass from Rust and a flick of Crosby's wrist ended the superstar's lengthy postseason scoring drought on Monday night. Crosby's shot sailed high and hard over Andrei Vasilevskiy's stick 40 seconds into overtime, lifting the Penguins to a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning and tying their best-of-seven series 1-1. Crosby hadn't found the back of the net since Game 4 of the opening round against the New York Rangers, though Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper downplayed the idea that the two-time MVP was in a slump, pointing out a cold streak for Crosby is a hot streak for most others. In danger of heading to Florida down 2-0, Crosby generated scoring chance after scoring chance, including a backhand in the second period that appeared destined for an open net until Vasilevskiy stretched out his glove to make a save that could have tilted the balance of power in the series.
Pittsburgh dominated most of the night, outshooting Tampa Bay 41-21 while spending most of the game in the Lightning zone.
Vasilevskiy finished with 38 stops, but darted toward the dressing room after he moved too far to his left when squaring to face Crosby, giving the Pittsburgh sniper all the room he needed to score perhaps the second biggest goal of his life after his overtime winner for Team Canada in the gold medal game of the 2010 Olympics. The Penguins still haven't lost consecutive games of any variety since January and none with the usual allotment of men on the ice since coach Mike Sullivan's first week on the job back in December. Matt Cullen and Phil Kessel scored during Pittsburgh's two-goal burst to start the game and Matt Murray rebounded from a shaky start to finish with 19 saves, including stuffing Alex Killorn on a breakaway late in the second period with the score tied 2-2. Anton Stralman scored in his return to the lineup from a fractured left leg and Jonathan Drouin picked up his second goal of the series, but the Lightning lost for just the third time in 12 postseason games. The Penguins pointed to an inability to generate quality chances from in close as a major problem in Game 1. Facing the prospect of falling behind by two games for the first time in the postseason, Pittsburgh wasted little time trying to make Vasilevskiy uncomfortable, scoring off a pair of goalmouth scrambles to go up 2-0 less than 10 minutes in.
Stralman collected a pretty cross-ice feed from Jonathan Marchessault and lifted the puck over Murray's outstretched glove to cut the lead in half with 3:23 to go in the opening frame, and then Drouin's knuckler from the right circle tied it with 70 seconds remaining. Yet the Penguins kept pressing, peppering Vasilevskiy relentlessly in the third period and remaining upbeat even as the Russian goaltender pushed the game to overtime. What should have been a celebratory final weekend of the league season was overshadowed as bomb disposal experts carried out a controlled explosion of a suspicious package at Old Trafford that police later revealed was a dummy left over from a midweek training exercise. The Stretford End and Sir Alex Ferguson Stand were evacuated before the rest of United's 75,600 capacity ground was cleared, with the match called off 20 minutes before kickoff. Police stand outside the stadium after Sunday's match between Manchester United and Bournemouth was called off because of a bomb scare at Old Trafford.
Despite the worrying scenes at Old Trafford, Sunday's other nine Premier League matches went ahead as planned. Completing a bad day for United, Manchester City drew 1-1 at Swansea City to effectively guarantee fourth place and Champions League qualification at the expense of its local rival, who is three points behind with a goal difference of only plus-12 compared to plus-30 for Manuel Pellegrini's men. City took the lead as Kelechi Iheanacho slotted home in the fifth minute after Sergio Aguero's shot was pushed into the young Nigeria striker's path. Swansea equalized in first-half stoppage time through Andre Ayew, whose free kick deflected in off City midfielder Fernando, but the visitors held on to ensure Pellegrini departed on a high, with Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola set to replace him in the offseason. Capping a frustrating climax to the season for Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino's team came third as its 5-1 humiliation at relegated Newcastle United, combined with Arsenal's 4-0 win over bottom club Aston Villa, saw the Gunners leapfrog their north London rivals to finish second.
After losing the title to Leicester City, Tottenham has also wasted a chance to finish ahead of bitter rival Arsenal for the first time since 1994-95. Georginio Wijnaldum and Aleksandar Mitrovic put Newcastle in control before Erik Lamela got one back for Tottenham.


Mitrovic was sent off after 67 minutes, but Wijnaldum stroked home a penalty, with Rolando Aarons and Daryl Janmaat scoring late to further compound Tottenham's misery. Arsenal gleefully seized on Tottenham's woes with an Olivier Giroud-inspired demolition of Villa at Emirates Stadium. France striker Giroud bagged a hat-trick, with the goals coming in the fifth, 78th minute and 80th minutes before an own goal by Villa keeper Mark Bunn. At Stamford Bridge, Leicester brought the curtain down on its fairytale season by coming back to earn a 1-1 draw with Chelsea. Cesc Fabregas put Chelsea ahead with a 66th-minute penalty, but Danny Drinkwater's 82nd-minute equalizer ensured Leicester finished 10 points clear at the top. Everton looked revitalized by the firing of much-maligned manager Roberto Martinez as it defeated relegated Norwich City 3-0 at Goodison Park, thanks to goals from James McCarthy, Leighton Baines and Kevin Mirallas.
The Premier League season's defining quirk was that with a vast tide of television money set to flood England's top flight, Leicester City's triumph showed that wealth isn't everything. While Manchester City and Manchester United's squads cost a combined estimated total of 800 million pounds ($1.16 billion), Leicester's title-winning squad barely exceeded the 50 million mark.
Danny Drinkwater celebrates scoring for Leicester City against Chelsea in their English Premier League match at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
In the context of a TV deal worth 5.14 billion pounds due to kick in next season, the Foxes' fairytale 5,000-1 success suggests it is no longer about how much money you spend, but how you spend it. While the feats of Jamie Vardy (1 million pounds), Riyad Mahrez (400,000 pounds) and N'Golo Kante (5.6 million pounds) demonstrated a new way of spending, Leicester's soccer revealed a different way of winning. Meanwhile, the Professional Footballers' Association Team of the Year told its own story, with Leicester and Tottenham contributing four players each. Excepting Harry Kane, the division's 25-goal top scorer, who came through Tottenham's youth system, all were signed for fees dwarfed by the 49 million pounds City spent on Raheem Sterling. West Ham United's Dimitri Payet, another Team of the Year inclusion, was a relative steal at 10.7 million pounds. The French playmaker inspired Slaven Bilic's side to seventh place, with Ronald Koeman's Southampton, fellow frugal spenders, provisionally fifth ahead of Manchester United's postponed final game against Bournemouth, which fell victim to a bomb scare. Despite having invested some 250 million pounds in new players, Louis van Gaal oversaw a season of grim stagnation at United, which will miss out on a Champions League place for the second time in three years. Frustrated at United's feeble, sideways soccer - the antithesis of Leicester's approach - fans have grown increasingly vocal in their criticisms of the defiant Dutchman, for whom victory over Crystal Palace in next weekend's FA Cup final might not be enough to keep him in a job. Jose Mourinho has been hovering in anticipation of the Old Trafford axe falling ever since his dismissal by Chelsea in December. Worn down by Mourinho, the defending champion collapsed completely, but Guus Hiddink steadied the ship and with Italy coach Antonio Conte arriving after Euro 2016, a new future is taking shape.
There is immense anticipation, meanwhile, at City, where Pep Guardiola will replace Manuel Pellegrini following a season of damaging inconsistency that nonetheless yielded the League Cup and a first Champions League semifinal appearance.
Liverpool has already been revitalized by a new manager and despite an eighth-place finish, the club's engrossing run to the Europa League final has hinted at the thrills that may lie ahead under Jurgen Klopp. At Arsenal, Arsene Wenger soldiers on towards the 20th anniversary of his appointment - and the Gunners are falling in step.
Wenger has, customarily, delivered another season of Champions League soccer - the 19th in succession - but with Arsenal having spectacularly failed to exploit its rivals' struggles, fan dissent towards the Frenchman has been louder than ever. Emboldened by their TV gains, the heavyweights can be expected to flex their muscles in the offseason transfer window, and former Leicester manager Martin O'Neill believes they will all come back stronger. The division will lose two of its grandest clubs as Newcastle United and Aston Villa sink into the Championship alongside Norwich City, to be replaced by Burnley, Middlesbrough and the playoff winners.
The TV deal means that Burnley and Boro could not have timed promotion better, but as Leicester's game-changing success demonstrates, it's what you do with your money that counts. Backes opened the scoring and Jori Lehtera had the go-ahead goal in the second period on a spinning shot that Martin Jones could not handle. Among those he frustrated was captain Joe Pavelski, who had seven shots and had perhaps the best chance in the third period on a one-timer near the midway mark. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock thought his team was fortunate to survive the last 2:29 after the Sharks pulled Jones. The Sharks were the best road team in the NHL in the regular season at 28-10-3, but have dropped four in a row on the road in these playoffs, including all three in the second round against Nashville. They had seven goals in the three road losses to the Predators and were 0-for-3 on the powerplay, which had been a major plus. The Blues made good on their first chance with home-ice advantage in the playoffs, although they're just 4-4 at Scottrade Center heading into Game 2 on Tuesday night.
Elliott was at his best in the second period when the Blues were outshot 16-5, but got the lone goal when Lehtera scored unassisted. Backes opened the scoring with a deflection and is tied with sharpshooter Vladimir Tarasenko for the team lead with seven playoff goals - mostly because he's fearless in front of the net waiting to pounce on rebounds. Defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk started the play from the point and thought the goal was particularly impressive because it was deflected before it got to Backes. Lehtera's second goal of the playoffs came off an errant clearing attempt by Brent Burns for a 2-1 lead. Just 34 seconds elapsed between the opening goal by Backes and Hertl's answering tally, when he redirected Pavelski's shot past the sprawling Elliott. Record-breaking teenager Max Verstappen handled his triumphant arrival as a global sports star with the same cool aplomb he showed behind the wheel on Sunday. Surrounded by microphones and cameras, he beamed with pleasure just as he had while steering his Red Bull car to his first win - and a place in sports history - at the Spanish Grand Prix. Red Bull driver Max Verstappen celebrates winning Sunday's Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Catalunya on the outskirts of Barcelona. At 18 years and 228 days, Vetstappen is now not only the youngest man to race in Formula One, but the youngest to score points, finish on the podium and win a race, taking all of those records from four-time champion Sebastian Vettel, who had set them when he, too, was a Red Bull driver.
On Sunday, Vettel finished third, separated from the remarkable Dutchman by his Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen, a 36-year-old veteran of 235 races who had also, as he reminded Verstappen, raced in F1 against the teen's father. Verstappen only joined the Red Bull team a week earlier, in a stunning promotion from the Toro Rosso outfit.
His was Red Bull's first win since the 2014 Belgian Grand Prix and first without Vettel on the team. After the laughter, speculation about his future and evaluation of his potential began in the paddock.
The previous youngest winner, Vettel, was 21 years and two months old when he won the 2008 Italian Grand Prix with Toro Rosso. Vettel has since gone on to win four world championships and joined Ferrari, leaving Red Bull and his former glories in his past. On Sunday, Vettel saw his successor - and the future - in the shape of a kid declared "too young" when he arrived and only passed his road car driving test on his 18th birthday last September.
Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton was in the pole position but was overtaken by teammate Nico Rosberg at the start, and when the British driver tried to regain the lead, he appeared to be blocked by his teammate and both cars touched going into Turn 4, spinning across the track and into the gravel at the runoff area. Rosberg didn't directly blame Hamilton but said he didn't do anything wrong, adding that the crash ruined what seemed a certain victory after he jumped to the front at the start. Murray, the No 2 seed who lost to Djokovic in last week's Masters final in Madrid, celebrated his 29th birthday in style with a stylish 6-3, 6-3 victory over the Serbian that took just 95 minutes.
It was Murray's first title in Rome and the third clay-court title of his career after victories on the red dirt in Munich and Madrid last year.
Andy Murray kisses the trophy after beating Novak Djokovic in the Rome Masters' final on Sunday. Murray's powerful serve had Djokovic in trouble on more than one occasion during a rain-drenched final, and he showed progress in other areas. Although Djokovic heads to Paris looking to make amends for last year's stunning defeat to Swiss Stan Wawrinka, Murray has just become a potentially bigger obstacle to the world No 1's hopes of a 12th Grand Slam title.
Becoming the first Briton to win in Rome since Patrick Hughes in 1931, it is the first time Murray's name has been added to a trophy since the birth of his baby daughter. A week after his Madrid loss, the stars aligned for Murray thanks to Djokovic coming in fatigued after his late semifinal win over Japan's Kei Nishikori on Saturday.
In Paris, nine-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal and Swiss pair Wawrinka and Roger Federer will be out to make amends for early exits in Rome. Seven-time Rome champion Nadal was ousted in the quarters by Djokovic, but two days after Djokovic called beating the Spaniard on clay "the ultimate challenge", Nadal gave no indication he fears for his prospects in Paris. Wawrinka, beaten by Juan Monaco in the third round, is set to play in Geneva this week as he struggles for match-winning confidence ahead of the defense of his title in Paris. There are even bigger doubts about Federer, who won the Roland Garros title in 2009 and exited Rome still complaining of a back injury that forced him out in Madrid. Meanwhile, Serena Williams heads to Paris brimming with confidence ahead of her bid for a third title at Roland Garros that would take her Grand Slam tally to 22.
The American swept past 21-year-old compatriot Madison Keys 7-6 (5), 6-3 to claim her fourth Italian Open victory on Sunday, first title of the season and 70th of her career. Williams becomes just the fifth woman to achieve such a total in singles after Martina Navratilova, Chris Evert, Steffi Graf and Margaret Court.
With another command performance, Day put his stamp on No 1 in the world by never letting anyone closer than two shots in the final round, playing bogey-free on the back nine of the TPC Sawgrass for the fourth straight day and closing with a 1-under 71 for a wire-to-wire victory. Day stomped his way all over everyone at The Players Championship, even though he had a few nervous moments.
He made bogey on No 6, had to make a 15-foot par putt on the next hole and really looked out of sorts from just 40 feet right of the green on the par-5 ninth. Day's seven victories dating to the Canadian Open include the PGA Championship, The Players, a World Golf Championship and a pair of FedEx Cup events. He became the first wire-to-wire winner in 16 years at Sawgrass, and joined Tiger Woods, Johnny Miller and Tom Watson as the only players to go wire-to-wire twice in the same season dating to 1970. Kyle Lowry scored 35 points and DeMar DeRozan had 28 as the Raptors beat the Miami Heat 116-89 in Game 7 on Sunday to advance to the NBA's Eastern Conference final for the first time in franchise history. Toronto Raptors' DeMarre Carroll is fouled by Miami Heat's Goran Dragic during Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semifinal in Toronto on Sunday. Bismack Biyombo added 17 points and 16 rebounds for the Raptors, who will open the series in Cleveland against LeBron James and the Cavaliers on Tuesday night.
DeMarre Carroll scored 14 points, and Patrick Patterson had 11 to help the Raptors become the 15th team in NBA history to win two Game 7s in one postseason. Now the Raptors get ready for the Cavaliers, who swept Detroit in the quarterfinal and have been resting since May 8, when they capped a semifinal sweep of Atlanta. Casey declined to say whether center Jonas Valanciunas, who sprained his right ankle in Game 3 against the Heat, would be available against Cleveland.
Scouting booklets for the Cleveland series were sitting on the chair of each Raptors player inside their locker room less than an hour after the game. Instead, Miami was left to wonder what might have been after losing Chris Bosh at the All-Star break for the second straight year, then losing center Hassan Whiteside to a sprained right knee in Game 3 against Toronto.
Charlotte, the Los Angeles Clippers, and New Orleans are the only three teams to never reach a conference final. Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns has been voted the NBA's Rookie of the Year, according to a source with direct knowledge of the award. The No 1 overall pick from Kentucky posted the best rookie season for a big man since Tim Duncan.
Towns also played all 82 games and was named Western Conference rookie of the month in all six months the award was handed out. Towns is the second straight Timberwolves player to win the Rookie of the Year award after teammate Andrew Wiggins had a similarly convincing debut. Add to those two young stars a promising supporting cast including Zach LaVine, Ricky Rubio, Gorgui Dieng and Shabazz Muhammad that will be coached next season by Tom Thibodeau, and the Wolves believe they can finally end a 12-season playoff drought. Katie Ledecky is basically swimming against herself in her final tuneup for the US Olympic trials. Ledecky won the 400-meter freestyle at the Atlanta Classic on Saturday night, grabbing the lead as soon as she dove in the water and stretching the margin with every lap. Katie Ledecky competes in Saturday's 400m freestyle final during the Atlanta Classic swim meet at Georgia Tech Aquatic Center.
The Atlanta Classic is Ledecky's final meet before the Olympic trials, which begin June 26 in Omaha, Nebraska. Tellingly, Ledecky's time in Atlanta was nearly three seconds faster than the gold medal-winning performance by the late Camille Muffat in London four years ago. The American teenager will be an overwhelming favorite in both the 400 and the 800 free, and increasingly looks like the swimmer to beat in the 200 free. She's also added the 100 free to her repertoire, giving her a chance to add another individual event or at least claim a spot on two relays at the Rio Games.
After warming down for 30 minutes in the adjacent diving well, Ledecky paused on deck to sign autographs and pose for phots with dozens of adoring young fans who were patiently waiting. In another event on Saturday night, Olympic gold medalist Nathan Adrian won the 50 free in a water-churning 21.93. While that wasn't nearly fast enough to win an Olympic gold, it sets up Adrian to at least make a run at swimming the unpredictable event in Rio. When the European Championships start on Monday at the London Aquatics Centre - which staged the swimming at the 2012 Olympics - there will be just 82 days before the Games start in Rio de Janeiro. Given the proximity, few who are competing in Rio will have rested before the London meet, but are instead in heavy training, eyes planted firmly on what lies ahead in August. Britain's Adam Peaty is his country's major hope as the European Championships start on Monday in London. Prominent was 19-year-old Adam Peaty, two weeks after knocking Olympic champion Cameron van der Burgh of South Africa to second place in the 100m breaststroke at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Peaty was a standout in Berlin, winning four gold medals and setting a world record in the 50m breaststroke, albeit not ratified due to an administrative error. Olympic 50m freestyle champion Florent Manaudou also made four visits to the top of the podium, while Sweden's Sarah Sjoestroem claimed three golds. All three have had a stunning couple of years, but for Peaty the summer of 2014 was when he made a deafening entrance onto the international stage. He went on to obliterate Van der Burgh's 100m world record last year in London before three gold medals at the World Championships in Kazan, where he and the South African went toe to toe like prize fighters, trading 50m world records as boxers trade blows. FIFA's new second-in-command is no stranger to the kind of power struggles that brought FIFA to the brink, having served as the representative of the UNDP in post-coup Madagascar from 2010 to 2015 before moving to Nigeria. Samoura's years with the UN, including with the World Food Program, have taken her crisis-management skills to hotspots such as Afghanistan, Chad and Darfur.
Samoura, who was named as the successor to disgraced Frenchman Jerome Valcke at a FIFA congress in Mexico on Friday, will take up her post by mid-June after undergoing an eligibility check administered by an independent review committee. She said she met Infantino, who was appointed to succeed Sepp Blatter in February, for the first time in November last year. A mother of three, whose husband's dreams of becoming a soccer pro were shattered when he broke his leg at age 20, Samoura has rubbed shoulders with soccer luminaries from an early age. The daughter of an army colonel, she went to school with Cheikh Seck, goalkeeper for the Senegalese national team in the 1980s, and befriended Cameroonian legend Roger Milla during a posting in Yaounde. Among her idols, she lists former Bayern Munich winger and now president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and retired Malian striker Salif Keita, who played for Marseille.
Gonzalo Higuain was in high spirits on Saturday after his hat-trick in a dramatic 4-0 rout of Frosinone set a new all-time record of 36 goals in a single Serie A season and fired Napoli into the Champions League.
Roma, despite a 3-1 win at AC Milan that has virtually ended the host's hopes of Europa League football, finished two points back in third, meaning it will enter the preliminary rounds of Europe's premier club competition. Champion Juventus, which secured a record-equaling fifth successive title last month, capped its campaign with a 5-0 rout of 10-man Sampdoria in Turin, where Paulo Dybala struck twice for the hosts. It left the Argentine striker with 23 goals in his first season at the club - one more than compatriot Carlos Tevez.
The results left the remaining European places for next season as all that was left to be decided, and Napoli and Sassuolo emerged the victors.
Roma, runners-up the past two seasons, traveled to Milan looking for a win and hoping Napoli would stumble at home.
In Napoli, fans packed San Paolo stadium hoping to see local hero 'Pipita' set a new record. Sitting at 33 goals going into the match, Higuain was still two short of Gunnar Nordahl's 1950 record of 35, scored in a 20-team Serie A campaign.
In little under two years with Barcelona, Luis Suarez has won six trophies, silenced his critics with almost impeccable on-field behavior and now, most remarkably of all, left Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in his shadow.
Suarez fittingly scored a hat-trick as Barca retained its La Liga title on Saturday with a 3-0 win at Granada, lifting his tally for the season to a remarkable 59 goals and 26 assists.
Barcelona's Luis Suarez celebrates completing his hat-trick in Saturday's 3-0 win over Granada that clinched the La Liga title. While being held under house arrest there, Paul received a visitor named Onesimus, whose name meant profitable or advantage.
20121 Kings 8:28 -- But please listen to my prayer and my request, because I am your servant.
While it is not recommended that you replace traditional sunblock with these foods, consuming them will likely offer additional protection and reduce sun damage for you and your family—all while tasting great. But fresh tomatoes such as in homemade salsa, gazpacho, or tomato salad still offer a respectable dose of good-for-your-skin lycopene. You can also find betacarotene in non-orange foods, like mustard greens, turnip greens, collard greens, beets, beet greens, cabbage, kale, and spinach. In addition to vitamin C, cherries contain melatonin, which protects skin from UV radiation and repairs sunburn damage. Mushrooms (especially cremini) contain the mineral selenium, essential for the production of glutathione peroxidase. In addition to being great sources for essential nutrients, these foods will provide a healthy dose of natural sun protection and skin regeneration. These get their added oomph by the use of a classic French mirepoix (onions, carrots and celery). Even better: if the goal can be chunked into smaller successes, list them and then cross out as they are accomplished.
A maximum of five to seven goals are ideal (psychology tells us we focus best on this number or less).
Even if a list was made, but not a daily reminder, this puts us at a disadvantage for reaching our goals.
And gratitude is not only polite and appreciated, it turns out it is good for our emotional health; our very heart and soul! Even three weeks after they had stopped writing items down, the group of kids that expressed gratitude was more grateful than the control group that did not. But during the holidays, do try to spend time focusing with your child on what he or she already has to counter balance this.


If using a commercially prepared pie crust, look for a brand without trans or hydrogenated fats.
Those organizations, they're big-time," said Marquette center Henry Ellenson, an expected lottery pick. If this one was any kind of preview of what is coming, this should be a dandy of a series between the NBA's highest-scoring teams from the regular season. He rotated his entire starting XI for the 1-1 draw at West Brom on Sunday, meaning he welcomes back the big guns.
Tony Lloyd, who serves as Manchester mayor and police commissioner, branded it "outrageous" and a "fiasco".
At age 27, Chan is younger than several of the players she coaches, yet she has already secured a unique place in soccer history by becoming the first woman to lead a men's team to a top-division regional championship. Only the brilliant play of the 21-year-old Vasilevskiy - filling in for injured starter Ben Bishop - kept Tampa Bay in it. This one could do the same for Crosby's adopted city, one in desperate need of a Stanley Cup to bookend the one Crosby helped claim in 2009. Once there, Crosby's 47th playoff goal provided a boost Pittsburgh hopes it can carry south. That means United will be in action just four days before it faces Crystal Palace in Saturday's FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium.
Louis Blues tends goal during the third period of Sunday's opening game of the NHL's Western Conference final against the San Jose Sharks at Scottrade Center in St Louis, Missouri. The goalie benefited from a quick whistle with 1:14 left when he unsuccessfully tried to smother the puck on a long dump-in by Melker Karlsson, and it slowly slid between his pads and off his stick into the net - just after play was whistled dead.
He had already won the first four this year and could have become the first driver to win five in a row to start the season since Michael Schumacher with Ferrari in 2004. He has more variety in his shots from the baseline play, so obviously he has improved," said Djokovic. He's been consistently playing well (at Roland Garros) throughout the years, and I'm sure he's going to be very motivated to do well again. Not the three muffed chips that turned a potential birdie into an unsettling bogey as he made the turn on Sunday.
He muffed three straight chips and had to make a 6-foot putt just to escape with bogey, dropping his lead to two shots.
The last hurdle was finding land on the island-green 17th, and he cleared the water with about 10 feet to spare. Kevin Chappell, who finished one shot behind Day at Bay Hill, was 5-under over his final 10 holes for a 69. Lowry made 11 of 20 shots, including five of seven from 3-point range, and DeRozan connected on 12 of 29 attempts.
Miami was denied the opportunity to renew acquaintances with former teammate James in the conference final. The Heat won their past four Game 7s, all at home, and was seeking to join the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics as the only teams to win five straight Game 7s. After rallying to beat Charlotte in the first round, Miami fell short in its bid to become the first team to erase 3-2 deficits in consecutive series. The 19-year-old brought the crowd to its feet with a blistering final lap to win the event. She'll wrap up the competition with two more events - the 100 free and the 200 individual medley - on Sunday but won't tackle the 800 free, probably her signature event.
At that time he was not yet a candidate for the FIFA presidency and was busy preparing Michel Platini's campaign. I'm delighted, it's been a great day and we get to lift the trophy in front of the fans," said Dybala.
But despite goals from Mohamed Salah, Stephan El Shaarawy and a late Emerson strike, with Carlos Bacca hitting a late consolation for the Rossoneri, it was not enough for Luciano Spalletti's men. One day when you are older and your children have started their own families and have moved to another city or state, or when your friends become elderly and pass away, your wife is the one who will still be right at your side.
Do not overcook as the meat will continue to cook in the sauce and we don’t want it to get tough.
If you prefer, you can puree the sauce, but make the following changes: Cut the carrots and celery in larger pieces. And research presented at the American Psychological Association's 120th Annual Convention found that grateful teens are more likely to be happy, less likely to abuse alcohol and drugs, and less likely to have behavioral problems at school, compared with less grateful teens. Leaving your child a written note on the refrigerator is another great way to reinforce being thankful. This allows your child to enjoy the family celebration, instead of worrying about the meal.
Limes, also high in vitamin C, can cause the skin to burn more, so be sure to limit exposure to lime juice or peels when heading out in to the sun.
You could add cayenne pepper (to taste), Tabasco sauce or up to 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar for a kick. Cook the meat first (spray with nonstick spray as there will be no oil in the pan from sautéing the veggies) then remove. Why not have your children tell you before bed something that they were grateful for that day, or some act of kindness they saw someone else do? When Onesimus ran away, he probably took with him money and goods which belonged to his master Philemon. It’s establishing this habit when they are young that will most likely result in an adult with an attitude of gratitude that shines. Remove lid, bring to a moderate simmer and cook until reduced to desired thickness, another 10 minutes or so, stirring occasionally. Puree the vegetables with an immersion blender (or in a blender, but be sure to use a kitchen towel on the lid and leave a vent for the steam to escape).
This word means to assign, to designate, to allocate, orA to intentionally give something to someone.
It refers to a calculated decision to show attention, awareness,or consideration to someone else. In this case, it refers to a man purposefully showing attention to and consideration for his wife. Paul, however, honored the social tie that bound a slave to his master and respected the duty Onesimus owed to Philemon, his master. Because Peter uses the Greek wordA aponemo (a€?givinga€?), this strongly suggests that the husbanda€™s attention, awareness, and consideration dona€™t occur accidentally.
Guided by the tenth commandment, which forbids coveting another man's worker, and by the law of love, Paul decided Onesimus should return to Philemon. Paul was about to send Tychicus, a co-worker, to Colosse with a letter Paul had written to the church there. He tells husbands that they are to give honor unto the wife as unto the a€?weaker vessel.a€?A The word a€?weakera€? does not mean inferior or substandard.
Tychicus' traveling to Colosse offered Paul the opportunity to send Onesimus with Tychicus to Philemon. This is the Greek word asthenes, which actually carries the idea ofA something that is fragile and of great value, like a priceless, beautiful, hand-painted porcelain vase that must be treated with supreme care. Onesimus went willingly as a penitent Christian to seek his master's forgiveness and to return to his service in Philemon's household. She is to be given a place of high honor in his life, as if she were a fragile and priceless vessel. Rather, Paul commended Philemon for the loving compassion he showed to his fellow Christians and then interceded in Onesimus' behalf. Slaves, such as Onesimus, who were brought back to their masters were often treated most harshly and under Roman law could be killed.
Paul noted that Philemon was having Onesimus come back to him as more than a slave but as a brother in Christ and fellow believer.
When you and your wife approach a door, open the door for her and let her goA through the door first. Since it was quite possible that Onesimus had wronged Philemon and was indebted to Philemon for what he had stolen, Paul even offered to have Philemon charge the debt to him so that Paul might repay him.
If you step through the door first and then let the door slamA in your wifea€™s face as she follows behind you, you give her the impression that sheA is of little value to you. In offering to repay Philemon for Onesimus' indebtedness, Paul reminded Philemon that he owed him his very life, for it appears that in some way as a result of Paul's gospel ministry Philemon had become a believer in Christ the Savior.
In the course of his letter Paul hinted that he would very much like to have Onesimus back with him in Rome.
When your wife walks up or down the stairs or when she gets in or out of the car,A show enough consideration for her to reach out and take her by the hand and helpA her. Instead of spending all the extra money on yourself, on your fishing trip, or on yourA personal pleasures, why not sacrifice a few of your own desires and give her thatA extra money to go do something for herself? When you give her a check or cashA and tell her to go buy something for herself, it will probably shock her! But as sheA realizes that you are making a sacrifice of your own desires to bless her, it will sendA a gigantic signal that you love her and want to bless her.A 4.
SheA works hard to be beautiful for you, and it is only right that you acknowledge itA when she looks pretty. An automobile may be filled with enough fuel to drive a long distance, but it wona€™tA go anywhere until someone puts the key into the ignition and then turns the key. If you have sons, you are also providingA a good example to them of the way they should honor their own future wives.A 6.
When you give her time that is completelyA undistracted, it lets her know that you want to be with her. When you are at work, remember to pick up the telephone to call her during the day,A just to let her know you are thinking about her. It doesna€™t take long for you to makeA a quick phone call, but that moment of consideration means a lot to your wifebecause it communicates to her how much you value her. Even though Goda€™s Word says I have a sound mind, I continually feelA like I dona€™t have control of my thought life. And in spite of the fact the Bible says God has blessedA me with gifts and talents, I feel like a dope who has nothing to offer to this world. If you always have time to be with everyone else butA never have time with her, you are sending her the message that she is the lowest priorityA in your life. But for that potential in you to be released, you have to hold the right key in yourA hand.A Furthermore, it isna€™t enough for you to just possess the key. You have to put that key into theA a€?ignitiona€? and turn it so the latent potential that resides inside you will be ignited.
So take a few minutesA every so often to write a little note or card and leave it for your wife to find. HowA much time and effort does it take for you to pick up an ink pen and a piece of paperA and write two or three sentences of appreciation to your wife?
Ita€™s a small investmentA of time and creativity that speaks volumes to your wife about your love for her.A 10. This is a person so sure of his information that when he speaks, he does so with confidence and boldness. Always remember special dates, such as your wifea€™s birthday or your weddingA anniversary. Men tend to forget these things, but these are special memories to aA wife and it means so much to her when these times are celebrated with her husband.A Also, dona€™t forget to buy her a gift for these occasions.
If you do any of theseA eleven things, you are sending a wrong signal to your wife, for none of theseA actions will make her feel cherished and treasured by you.
Even if she smiles and laughs, trying to shrug off your verbal jabs,A this kind of behavior on your part is deeply hurtful to your wife. If there is a conflict between you, wait until you get homeA where you can talk about it privately, but never make fun of her or put her downA in front of others. You should study, read, listen to teaching material a€” inA other words, you should use every available resource to discover what Goda€™s Word says youa€™ve beenA given in Jesus Christ. And I must ask you again, do you want her to point outA all your flaws in front of other people? The moment you open your mouth and start confessing the good things that are in you by Jesus Christ, a supernatural connection is made between your faith and allA that Jesus has deposited inside you. You would prefer that she speak to you privatelyA about such matters, so show her the same courtesy.A A 3.
At that moment, the gifts and treasures God has placed insideA you become supernaturally activated. Never tell your wife there isna€™t enough money in the budget for her to buy a new outfitA a€” and then turn right around and spend a lot of money on yourself, your fishingA trip, your hobbies, grills, tv's etc.
When she sees you do this, it communicates to her that youA love yourself more than you love her. Instead of speaking what God says about them, they ridicule themselves, put themselves down, and speak badly of themselves. By acknowledging the basic truths of what you have been given in Jesus, you will release so much divine energy that it will radically transform your life. When you consistently make time for everyone in your life except yourA wife, you are making a very big mistake. When I hear my own words, even I can tell ita€™s wrong for me to speak so lowly about myself.
If needed, cancel something in your scheduleA so you can give attention to this most important relationship in your life.A A 5.
Forgive me for speaking so wrongly and for allowing myself to remain imprisoned in self-defeat.
I am truly repentant for theseactions, and I ask You to forgive me and to give me the power to change my behavior.
Too often men act as if they are racing when they walk,A usually leaving their wives to walk five to fifteen feet behind them. Now, I understandA that you may think your wife walks too slowly, but what is the use of racing in frontA of her if you must then stop, turn around, and wait for her to catch up with you? ItA takes the same amount of time to get to your destination, whether you walk alongsideA your wife or you walk ahead and then wait for her.
I agree with all that Goda€™s Word declares me to be, and I speak these truths about myself. Every dayA Iam getting more positive and more faith-filled, and my mouth is speaking what God says about me.
Do you speak well of yourself, or do you find that you constantly criticize yourself and continually point out all your flaws? She wants to be the one and onlyA woman in your life, so comparing her to other women is not wise and shows greatA disrespect. If you were to ask your friends what they hear you saying about yourself, would they say you speak positively or negatively?A 2. What changes do you need to make in your life in order to change your confessions about yourself?
Your sexual relationship is a time ofA intimacy that is to be shared only between the two of you. Therefore, when youA make jokes about it or talk about it in front of others, you are humiliating your wifeA and making her feel cheap.
This is certainly not a way to cherish her or to treat herA like a treasure!A 8.Never lie to your wife or tell a half-truth to cover your tracks.
If you violate her trust by lying to her and she discovers it,A your act of deception will affect her ability to trust you in the future.
It may be difficult for her to hear what you have to say, but at least she will know you are being honest with her. If she discovers you have been lying to her, this will result in a far greater hurt than if you honestly admit to her what you have done wrong.A 9.
Men who consistently forget these twoimportant dates and yet expect their marriage relationship to stay healthy are either ignorant or stupid. Guided by the tenth commandment, which forbids coveting another man's worker, and by the law of love, Paul decided Onesimus should return to Philemon. Tychicus' traveling to Colosse offered Paul the opportunity to send Onesimus with Tychicus to Philemon.
As noted earlier, the word a€?givea€? describesA a calculated decision to show attention, awareness, or consideration to someone else. This pictures a purposeful and premeditated action by a husband to intentionally showattention and demonstrate consideration for his wife.A If these kinds of thoughtful acts dona€™t come naturally to you, ita€™s time for you to learn how to doA them. Rather, Paul commended Philemon for the loving compassion he showed to his fellow Christians and then interceded in Onesimus' behalf.
The truth is that you showA kindness and consideration to other people, so youA can do the same for your wife as well. After you talk to the Lord,A it is also important that you humble yourself and ask your wife to forgive you as well. Let the Holy Spirit teach you, correct you, and show you how to becomeA more sensitive to the woman you have chosen to spend the rest of your life with.
I accept responsibilityA for the role I have played in wounding her and making her feel unimportant. As I follow Your leading in this area, please heal my wifea€™s heart andA bring tenderness back into our relationship once more.
I accept Your challenge to purposefullyA show the honor, attention, respect, and tenderness she deserves. My wife feels loved, respected, esteemed, andA special because I do the things that communicate value to her.
When is the last time you did something really extra special for your wife toA show her how much you love and care for her?A 2. Have you been guilty of jesting about your wife in front of others or of puttingA her down in front of the children?
