This is Sammy my newest family member, a new rescue.
GENRE009 is a SparkPeople Motivator!
My life has been a struggle. Two steps forward, sometimes five steps backwards. Basically in and out of physical accidents, emotional crisis, most bigger than life circumstances. It wears you down. How many times must I climb the mountain to finally stay there. Now is my final race,45 lib up from a car accident, yet I am physically back to normal . Or so I thought. Joined ww it helped me loose weight, but my cholesterol shot up. Back to spark again where my cholesterol showed 35 points down when I was at my highest weight. Now I found out that I have a heart condition cause by the impact to the stiring wheel in that car accident. Am taking magnesium & doing other things to dissolve the calcium deposits in y front valve. But this is my last race, and my final one . No more excuses to my self about whatever stress comes along. This is serious! No more games. When I reach my goal, at the mountain top, I know it will give me back so many things I have lost long ago, and I will try to just ignore the emotional hole I am trying to fill! I am not a rock yet, but I am a rock!!!
I would like to finally conquer my fears, and keep my health stable. As well as growing stronger in faith by knowing God's Word.
I am learning more about maintaining a healthy life style, as well as cooking healthier. I am learning to release my fears to god, so that I won't keep this pattern of mindless eating which leads to self destruction.
I am the daughter of immigrant parents, first generation. I was born over seas in a city in Germany that was like a resort, because the whole city was a spa. My family has some members named after the bible. I am the grand daughter of Joseph, and the child of Mary. I guess I am glad I didn't have a child, because I would have named him Christ-short for Christopher-or Chris Christopherson, ha ha. My mom remarried a chef when I was fifteen years old. But I never paid atten-tion to cooking till I was on my own.
I live in Michigan where we have four seasons. What has been constant in my life is that animals have come into my life. I have done rescue. "But little did I know they were rescuing me. I am very empathetic, and it shows in my writings. My unconditional love was shared by my animals. And they say that humans can never know this, except thru God.

I love the message you left on my spark page, Eva. I find when I become most discouraged, it is Satan wanting me to give in to idleness, busyness and dwell less in time with my Lord. My how wonderful it fills when one tells Satan in the name of Jesus "Go away"!
I am so enjoying my sweet time with the Lord today. I started out with going to the Park to be alone with Him for a couple of hours and then back home to continue my study that He has sparked such an interest in me.
Have a blessed day.

Hi my Beautiful Spark Friends, here is our new mantra:
Today I am shedding pounds as I shred my self-doubt,
Day in and day out, I develop the habits of healthy eating,
Today I am transforming my body into calorie-burning machine,
The more I exercise, the better I feel and the better I feel the more I exercise!

For animal lovers:
A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign
advertising the 4 pups, and set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard.
As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls.
He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.
"Mister," he said, "I want to buy one of your puppies."
"Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat of the back of his neck,
"these puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money."
The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket,
he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer.
"I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?"
"Sure," said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle. "Here Dolly!" he called.
Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by
four little balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the
chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way
to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse.
Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller.
Down the ramp it slid. Then in a awkward manner,
the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up....
"I want that one," the little boy said, pointing to the runt.
The farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, "Son, you don't want that puppy.
He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would."
With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down,
and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so he revealed a steel brace
running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe.
Looking back up at the farmer, he said, "You see sir, I don't run too well myself,
and he will need someone who understands."
With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the little pup.
Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.
"How much?" asked the little boy.
"No charge," answered the farmer, "There's no charge for love."
