Perseverance... Is it in you?

Perseverance. It is something we all need. Especially with weight loss Perseverance is in all of us. We just have to find it and pull it out. Guess who found hers? This girl! I am so tired of being overweight. I lead a very active lifestyle so this weight has got to go! There isn't anything that is going to stop me. Not even my back injury that happened when I was at work last week. I may not be able to do exercises right now but I can control what I am eating. My name is Janel. I am 43 ...

Evening emoticon

Dropping by to say hi and wish you a great weekend ahead, also want to say emoticon for your support on my blogs, your friendship is appreciated...Hope you enjoy the following poem.. emoticon

The Gift Of Friendship

Friendship is a priceless gift
That cannot be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold -
For gold is cold and lifeless,
It can neither see nor hear,
And in the time of trouble
It is powerless to cheer
It has no ears to listen,
No heart to understand,
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand -
So when you ask God for a Gift,
Be thankful if He sends
Nor diamonds, pearls or riches,
But the love of real true friends.

Janelen,
I am not a "perfect person". emoticon
My hair "doesn't always" stay in place, emoticon
and I "spill" things a lot. emoticon emoticon
I am "pretty clumsy" emoticon
and sometimes I have a "broken heart", emoticon
"My friends" & I sometimes "fight", emoticon
and maybe some days "nothing" goes right. emoticon
But when I think "about it" and take a "step back", emoticon
I remember how "amazing life" truly is, emoticon emoticon
and that maybe, just maybe, I like being "unperfect". emoticon emoticon

Hope you have a sensational Saturday, and a super Sunday!!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Dropping by to say hi and emoticon for your continued support on my blogs, cheering you on for a emoticon Thursday ahead.

Hope you enjoy the Easter Poem! emoticon

This Life on Earth

Easter means that this life on earth
is not all there is.
Jesus went "to prepare a place for us"
in His Fatherís heavenly mansions
for all eternity.
Jesus died for our sins,
paying our penalty,
so that we could be forgiven.
He was resurrected, to prove
that death has no hold
on those who repent
and accept Him as Savior.
This life on earth is a prelude
to eternal joy with our Lord.
Easter is a celebration
of our eternal destiny.

By Joanna Fuchs

Janelen,
Forgive those who insult you, attack you,
belittle you, or take you for granted.

But more than this...
forgive yourself for allowing them to hurt you.

Have a truly thankful Thursday!
