So appreciated your comment on my blog. I, too, would self-destruct if left to my own devices. Perfection is not a possibility, but moderation IS POSSIBLE -- with the help of the Holy Spirit. Thanks for reminding me of that!!
From reading your sparkpage I saw you are interested in missions. My brother-in-law goes to Guatemala regularly, and has also had many adventures there! And my husband and I were missionaries in France for 24 years.
I'm also a past WW person. I joined French Weight Watchers because everyone in France is thin and after the birth of my 3rd child I tipped the scale at just over 200 pounds. Being overweight was not a good testimony in France! I lost 66 pounds and have kept 45 of it off for over 10 years. But I live knowing that it would not take me long to go back to 200+.
So I am continually learning to depend on God to strengthen my self-control. And learning to enjoy His presence to meet my emotional needs instead of burying them in food. He is the "secret" of Life! 2537 days ago
Good morning Kelly. Thank you for leaving that blessed message on my page , God really knows how to speak to us. I am so glad that He knows how weak my flesh is and still blesses me w/ New Mercies everyday. Have a beautiful Friday. 2537 days ago
Thanks for your comment on my blog, Kelly. I do like outdoor "chores"... a hold-over from when I used to live on a farm. Unfortunately, I no longer have the energy to work for a couple of hours, then go for a bike ride. Must work up to that! All the best! 2537 days ago
