Patience...

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Have patience with all things, but chiefly patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them-everyday begin the task anew- Saint Francis de Sales.

    Needed your words of encouragement this morning as I looked over my time in the Sparkpeople program and know I had impossible expectations for myself.
I will remember ---everyday to begin the task anew!
Thank you.

I hear voices...

Saturday, March 23, 2013

Today as I attempted to finish up my 3.25 jog....my mind kept coming up with distractions... oh my knee hurts, oh my foot, oh my back... but the stronger voice of Jillian Michaels saying, "Finish Strong" just kept echoing through my mind and body and I did finish strong!!! Anything is possible if we're willing to work for it!- ME!!!

    That is awesome - sometimes we have to silence the negative voices and replace them with positive ones - I almost bailed on my water aerobics class yesterday and am SOOOO glad I didn't. You rock.

Just what I needed...

Friday, March 22, 2013

I've been struggling a bit with an unspoken issue and today when I was finishing up my bible reading/study came across the following by Carol L. Baldwin. It's just what I needed today...
...Every problem with our children, each disagreement with our husbands, each stressful assignment at our jobs provides an opportunity to call on God to strengthen our faith, to develop our perserverance, to build our character and to ground our hope deeper in him....(Romans 5:3-4) -Carol L. Baldwin

    Well said. It's not what we face, but how we respond to it.

    It's nice to read a quote from St. Francis in view of the new pope patterning his own life after his. Thank you.
