After my California vacation, I weighted myself and was expecting a weight increase and I got a weight decrease of 1 pound. I lost 1 pound on my vacation, enjoying family, friends, food and wonderful sites. I am thankful to God for leading me to Spark People and all of my encouraging friends here; Spark People works for me because I can live my life; food no longer rules my days. Matthew 7:7: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Spark Friends Enjoy the journey. for me and 16 pounds--I am taking it slowly.
Ok, most of my Spark Friends know that I do water aerobics and that I enjoy this greatly. This week, the areas of the pool were changed to accommodate the Triathlon Trials for the month of March. The change meant that our small swimming lane turned into the larger Olympic swimming lane. That was not problematic for me; I just stayed in a small area of the pool until our instructor ask us to join her in a walk to the end of the Olympic lane of the pool. I said “sure, why not”. I prayed during my walk as the water got deeper and my team mates got farther away from me. Later, when the instructor told us that we did not have to walk back, I declined and walked the full length back. Wow, that felt great and I felt good about my journey to the end and back. We can do whatever we make up our minds to do when we know the source of our strength. Isa 42:16 “Along unfamiliar paths I will guide them.”
