The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds has come.
Lift up your eyes to the heavens!
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful!

The place I enjoy the most is my home in the country. Although I enjoy traveling, I am always ready to come back to my quiet and serene surroundings. We lived on the Outer Banks for awhile and still consider it as part of our home. We love going back just to enjoy God's beautiful creation and mighty power on display there!
1 Corinthians 8: 24-27 Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So run your race that you may lay hold of the prize and make it yours.
Now every athlete who goes into training conducts himself temperately and restricts himself in all things. They do it to win a wreath that will soon wither, but we do it to receive a crown of eternal blessedness that cannot wither.
Therefore I do not run uncertainly without definite aim. I do not box like one beating the air and striking without an adversary. But like a boxer I buffet my body, handle it roughly, discipline it by hardships, and subdue it, for fear that after proclaiming the Gospel and things pertaining to it, I myself should become unfit, not stand the test, be unapproved and rejected as a counterfeit.
Thank You, Heavenly Father, for not giving up on me. I know I can't lose weight without You. Thank You for giving me this tool of SP to help me to be accountable and consistent. You are my source! Help me to continue on this weight loss journey with You as my Strength, Helper, Comforter, Stand-By, Counselor, and the Lifter of my head. I love You, Lord.
Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling me upward. Phi. 3:13-14
All things are possible with God. He teaches me. He strengthens me. He motivates me. He loves me just like I am, but He also loves me so much that He won't let me stay this way. I'm on the right path, and He will keep my feet steady as I keep pressing forward.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any person is in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."--Aristotle
Keep my eyes on Jesus!
Listen with expectancy to what He has to say to me.
Make exercise a top priority and do it 'as unto the Lord'.
I dare to be a Daniel. I determine in my heart not to defile myself with foods that add no nutritional value to my body. It is only through the Holy Spirit that I can accomplish this. Come Holy Spirit!

Hi PICNURSE, I can't get to your page, so I'll post a comment here, hoping you will see it. I will definitely pray for you and your family. I've had a few of those sucker-punches myself. Let me know when your page is public so I can add you as a friend.

I am new to SP as of 2/3/15. Just ran across your page. I needed to read what you had on your SP page today. Received devastating news yesterday that can't be out in public yet but it sucker punched me. As I read Jesus Calling today there was a quiet peace that came. I'd appreciate it if you would pray for me and my family today and over the next month as the HS leads you. Thanks
