Friendship

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

However rare true love is, true friendship is rarer.-LA Rochefoucauld

I don't 100% agree with this, but do find a measure of truth in it. Lord, let me be a TRUE friend!

Thoughts from Joyce Meyer's Sermon

Monday, March 11, 2013

Joyce Meyer's sermon on FEAR is really speaking to my heart... below is my attmept at interpreting her message on FEAR of not getting what I want!

God has a plan that may be a bit different than my plan! God doesn't always give me everything I "want" but that doesn't mean he doesn't give me what I need. What I need to accept is if I don't get what I want it means, I'm not supposed to have it! :)
HE gives me some of the things I want but not everything, simply because I'm not smart enough to want the right things.... God I don't want this if I'm not supposed to have it!!!!

Oxymoron or Not???

Saturday, March 09, 2013

I just have to share this with my fellow sparkers, as I think my thoughts on this are correct, but...
So for the past six weeks I've been participating in a Biggest Loser Challenge with several coworkers; (side note I chose to participate to jump start my motivation for the new year an ended up losing 19.6lbs/10.1% of my body weight) Anyway, yesterday was the big finale... last weigh in... winning teams announced... SNACKS provided.... guess what the snacks were... fresh donuts, a delightfully delicious looking double layered chocolate cake, and a fruity punch made with sherbert.... at first I thought the "leader" was joking when she told me these foods were available in the next room as a REWARD for our efforts... but it was NOT a joke... that was the reward... no healthy food choice options... I politely passed, and was later surprised to learn that I was in the minority!!!! OXYMORON or NOT??? Thoughts???

    emoticon That is more than an oxymoron, just a total moron! They could have at least provided low fat alternatives or alterations to a normally fatty dessert (like a low fat cheese cake or and angel food cake). How is that a reward? THat is just wrong. Perhaps you should be in charge of the next challenge.....is that a possiblity?
Just a thought.

    What were they thinking?! The leaders missed a perfect teachable moment about continuing success.

    Yes it is...Some folks just don't "get it". I do indulge occasionally, but agree there should have been a healthy choice. emoticon emoticon
