Cold Water

Monday, March 25, 2013

Today when I went to my water aerobics’ class, the water was so cold that I did not want to stay. I thought if I just move around and did my warm ups the water would get warmer—the water was still cold. All I could think of was the hot shower that was waiting for me if I got out of the pool. I did not get out of the pool; I continued my warm ups and slowly the water started to get warm. Isn’t life like this? Just when we think we cannot go another day, we cannot do another exercise, we cannot eat another vegetable, something happens like the water gets warm or we remember ourselves before Spark People and we remember why we are on our journey. “Above all…guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”(Pro. 4:23 NIV) emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You speak the truth! Sometimes the water is really cold and we have to choose to endure. Sometimes we have to find another type of exercise to adapt and continue toward our goals or follow the Lord's prompting into a new direction. As long as my heart is beating, I am not going to worry about the rythum.

Wilderness Days

Monday, March 18, 2013

Today, the scales did not change. There are times on our journey to a healthier life that we feel stuck—we are in the wilderness. The wilderness part of our journey is when we do not see anything happening and we feel that we will not reach our goals. It can happen at any moment and on our best days. Let’s take a deep breath, and remember our power source and continue the journey—the clearing is up ahead. “He…guided them in the wilderness…He led them on safely, so that they did not fear” (Ps 78:52-53 NKJV). emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It did not move this time, but that doesn't mean anything about the future. :)

We are not Lost

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Psalm 23 (KJV)
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, don't forget your green. emoticon

    This is my favorite pray. I said this pray every day when I stopped smoking which gave me strength throughout the day to stay strong! It's been 23 years now of no emoticon .
