I am in maintenance/lose a few pounds/tone up mode. I've always had self-image issues. While I still am grossed out by my (nude) body, I have learned to appreciate how it looks in clothes...most likely from doing all my fashion blogging. (Check the blog out! Link is posted below!)

(Old)
I was 149 pounds when I entered a VERY emotionally (and physically) abusive relationship in 2006. During the following three years, I battled anorexia (as a direct result of him...) I didn't think I was too skinny, I actually enjoyed that weight, but I was also eating under 500 calories a day, and knew it was unhealthy.


I still have TONS of body image issues, which are SLOWLY getting a little better. I do, however, feel so much happier, exercising and eating healthily.

Encouragement from the CML team
This week's lyrics are from a song that touched my life deeply. When I experience LOVE from above it cannot help but change my perspective on everything.

You Are Loved
by Hope's Call
Album: Live to Love
by Hope's Call

Verse 1:
Have you ever felt the Father's love
As He holds you in His arms
When you start to say I'm sorry
He says you've done nothing wrong
Have you failed to meet the standards
That you thought you should attain
Only to hear Him call your name, saying

Chorus:
You are loved beyond your failures
You are loved beyond your past
The hope that you've imagined
Is now reality at last
You are loved with no conditions
You are loved with no remorse
The scars of your forgiveness
Are engraved upon the Lord
You are loved

Verse 2:
Have you seen your life be torn apart
By things you could not help
Until you finally reached the point
Where you could only blame yourself
Have you laid your head to sleep
And think you'll always be alone
Then awaken to His voice calling you home, He says

Chorus

May the truth of these lyrics renew you this week.

From CML team These lyrics from Tenth Avenue North have spoken to me especially when I am struggling. I hope they minister to you.

"Worn"

Iím Tired Iím worn
My heart is heavy
From the work it takes
To keep on breathing
Iíve made mistakes
Iíve let my hope fail
My soul feels crushed
By the weight of this world

And I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
Thatís frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all thatís dead inside can be reborn
Cause Iím worn

I know I need to lift my eyes up
But I'm too weak
Life just wonít let up
And I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
Thatís frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all thatís dead inside can be reborn
Cause Iím worn

My prayers are wearing thin
Yeah, Iím worn
Even before the day begins
Yeah, Iím worn
Iíve lost my will to fight
Iím worn
So, heaven come and flood my eyes

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
Thatís frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all thatís dead inside can be reborn
Cause all thatís dead inside will be reborn

Though Iím worn
Yeah Iím worn


Please stop by the team and get involved. And please continue to pray for CyclingSandy and her husband.

From CML team
Tomorrow is Easter - Jesus is Risen! Here are the lyrics of a new song by Kari Jobe "Forever" that expresses our hope in Jesus

The moon and stars they wept
The morning sun was dead
The Savior of the world was fallen
His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us
The weight of every curse was broken

One final breath He gave
As Heaven looked away
The Son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged
The power of hell forever broken

The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His perfect love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting
Our resurrected King has rendered you defeated

Forever, He is glorified
Forever, He is lifted high
Forever, He is risen
He is alive
He is alive

Have a blessed Resurrection Day!

Been thinking about high school friend of mine, touch base with him here and there.....make sure he's alive. Sent him a text about week ago with no reply....which was kind of odd. He called me the other day to tell me he had been in the hospital all last week because his kidneys just failed! Offered him my kidney right off the bat, without blinking an eye! He says his brother is in line, along with another friend of ours.
