Personal Information:
I was diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis in 2002. I went from living at 100 mph to bedridden literally overnight. While I am no longer bedridden, my life has changed drastically. As a result of the illness, I have gained 200 pounds. I'm also an Emotional Eater, so I am looking to find a way to somehow come to terms with all of it and learn how to become more healthy again.

Other Information:
A New Moon represents a time of new beginnings. It is the time to start changes and the time for hopes and wishes.

For me, the New Moon represents the beginning of this journey.

I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

{This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }

'Twas the night before Jesus came
and all through the house
Not a creature was praying,
Not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!

(by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.

SLEEP? Who sleeps? I sure don't anymore. Especially not a NIGHT. Pffft. LOL. I guess that is something that I should talk to my PCP about since well, about 4pm I could fall asleep and get about 8 hrs solid but if I push through that I'll be up til dawn. Which doesn't help since the kiddo is up at 10am now. Glad that you're back. Things have been just crazy the last few months and I'm sorry we were out of touch but ugh. GRrrrr. RAWR! I think you might understand.

First, I want to say welcome back!
Second, I want to thank you so much for the comment on my blog 'my depression'. I really needed to be reminded that I am not the only one and that other people feel the same as I do or they have been there and they really understand what I am going through. I may take you up on your offer to email you if I need to talk.
