Forcing myself to be active is the hardest part of being active!

My name is Jackie, and I live in Las Vegas with my husband and our 3 adorable cats. I have been a nurse for 29 years, mainly in ICU and post-surgical Recovery, now in Pre-Op.
I herniated a disc in my lower back a few years ago, and combined with quitting smoking, I've put on about 30 pounds. I found SP in December of 2009, and firmly believe that it's the greatest website on the whole Internet!

Here we are in 2016. whether you have been on this journey for years or for months, you know it is hard. Natalie Grant recorded a song a few years ago that gives me the strength to keep going when I am struggling. I hope it will minister to you also.

ou are here in my heart
You're the light that guides me through the dark
You walk beside me, the night seems cold each time I fall
Your arms are there to hold

You walk beside me, giving strength I've never known
And I am not alone
You walk beside me
(I am not alone)

You are here in my mind
I talk to you and all my fears unwind
I know I'm loved, for who I am, you make me want to be the best that I can
And you walk beside me, giving strength I've never known

And I am not alone
You walk beside me
Oh, I am not alone
Wherever the road leads

And I rely on your patience
When I face the unknown
And because of you, I am, I am not alone, ooh
I am not alone
(I am not alone)

You're always beside me, yeah, I am not alone
Oh yeah, yeah in the sun, in the rain
(I am not alone)
Through the good times and in the pain
You're always beside me I reach out for your hand
(I am not alone)
I know that you understand, oh yeah, yeah
(I am not alone)

In the sun, in the rain
Through the good times and in the pain
You're always beside me I reach out for your hand
(I am not alone)
I know that you understand, oh

WHat is your favorite Christmas Carol?? emoticon
I challenge you this week before Christmas to read the words to every verse of that carol and meditate on their meaning. Focus on WHO this season is about. May your heart be open to what the Lord will do to show you HIS love this week.
Merry Christmas. Christ the Savior is born.

"In A Bleak Midwinter"

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Our God, heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

Enough for Him, Whom cherubim, worship night and day,
Breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay;
Enough for Him, Whom angels fall before,
The ox and ass and camel which adore.

Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air;
But His mother only, in her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the beloved with a kiss.

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him... give my heart.

One of my favorite Christmas hymns. Let us remember the baby in the manger who came to give us life, as we celebrate this season.
