HELLO ALL,

WELCOME! to my Spark Page.

Come, sit down and have a cup of tea while we get to know each other!

Hope you enjoy your stay!

Well, here we are in 2015...wow!...another year to renew our health and fitness goals. The past year was an exciting one and many goals were met, but for me it ended on a slow note.

HELLO ALL,

WELCOME! to my Spark Page.

Come, sit down and have a cup of tea while we get to know each other!

Hope you enjoy your stay!

Well, here we are in 2015...wow!...another year to renew our health and fitness goals. The past year was an exciting one and many goals were met, but for me it ended on a slow note.
So this year it is time to rev things up again and continue the successes of this past year.

This year I want to put God first in my life and let Him lead me on this journey He has set before me.
So some of the verses from last year still apply for me:

Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you.
Matthew 6:33.

And the reminder that...

...with God all things are possible
Matthew 19:26

To these I add a third one to help motivate me and others who might stop by my page:

Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Phil 3: 12-14

With God's help, may we seek Him in all we do and reach the goals He has for us this year!

Hi Sue,

thank you so much for dropping a note on my page. It was so nice to see it today, when I (finally) went back on after the move. We made it to Idaho!! It was by far the most exhausting move we have had (still kind of is). We are now in a house, but it is still empty, as our furniture has not arrived yet. so basically, we have been camping since May...
It will be so nice to have our own "stuff" again!
How are you doing? Are you part of teh summer challenge? I had to skip that one, because of the move. But I am waiting to get into the fall one!!
How is your knee?
Hopefully, all is going well for you,
Hugs!

Hi Sue,
Sorry to hear you're still having problems with your knee. Age is going to get us all in the end. I'm slower than I used to be, but still moving. Some days are better than others. I imagine your daughter had an amazing time in Ireland. What a great opportunity. I haven't been on Spark much, either, but I'm hoping to change that now that I have more time. Take care, Sweetie. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon I am still in a lot of pain. I have not been talking on the phone much at all. For some reason it hurts too much. I am glad that you are beginning to feel better.

We also had a cool down, but it has not been too hot here, not really bad anyway.

When my ear infection goes away I'll give you a call. emoticon
