The Journey

I am a Christian lady married to my high school sweetheart, (yeah, I know, we were just babies, but hey, it's worked out really well for us!). I have two adult children, one married, one single. I love traveling and seeing new sights. Being outdoors is one of my favorite activities, whether it's hiking, snowshoeing, camping, working in the yard/garden or just hanging out in the hammock, it's all good.

My Goals:
My goal is to be healthy and fit.
I'd like to be able to hike a 14ner. (that's a mountain that's over 14,000 feet tall-it's a Colorado thing).
I DID IT!!! I DID IT!!! I DID IT!!!
July 27, 2013 Handies Peak above Lake City, Colorado 14,058 feet

My Program:
I am going to the gym four days a week, walking on the treadmill at LEAST 6 miles at 4.5 (and up to 5) mph and lifting weights for 35 minutes. I am watching what I eat, keeping the calorie count between 1200 and 1650 a day.

Personal Information:
I am married to a wonderful man. The past three years we have been teaching a marriage and relationship class based on the"Love and Respect" book and DVD series. It has been a blessing watching God work in marriages and change lives.

Other Information:
I am so thankful for Jesus. I am a born again Christian believer. I'm far, far from perfect, I'm trying to grow and be more what He wants me to become. Even when I fail, He still loves me and is always ready to pick me up, dust me off, and put me back on the right track. For that I am GRATEFUL.

The weather where I live has been frigid with lost of snow. It is a time of year when being cooped up due to the weather can cause a feeling of loneliness and perhaps even cause turning to food. Here is a Prayer for MidWinter that I have been saying this week.
From the rising of the midwinter sun to its setting,

Scatter the darkness with the light of your love, O Shining One.( I say Jesus)

Make me short on mean thoughts, long on offers words of comfort.

Make me short on being driven, long on paying attention.

Make me short on focusing only on my own, long on looking beyond.

Make me short on obsessive lists, long on spontaneous acts of kindness,

Make me short on mindless activity, long on time to reflect.

Make me short on tradition as a habit, long on rediscovery and re-owning.

Make me short on rushing a tiring, long on walking and wondering.

Make me short on false, festive jollity, long on stilling and rooted joy.

Make me short on guilt, long on being merciful to myself.

Make me short on being overwhelmed, long on peaceableness as I set forth this day.

-from The Celtic Wheel of the Year by Tess Ward

I hope it ministers to you also.

The prayer of my heart this week is found in the lyrics of a song by Hillsong. May we always seek the ways of the Lord on this journey and in life.

Show Me Your Ways
Song by Hillsong Live

Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways
Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways
Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways
Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways

If we look upward, it will be that much harder to drag us down!

Have a blessed week.
