Hi Everyone!

My name is Angie. I joined Sparks in September 2007 and lost 35 pounds only to start gaining it back after the death of my mother in March 2008. I lost all motivation and until recently did not know why until it was mentioned that I was still grieving and suffering from depression. All of a sudden things began to make sense again and I started to return to "me" again. Though I never left Sparks, I can honestly say I was only going through the motions for the past few years. Being on a plateau ...
My name is Angie. I joined Sparks in September 2007 and lost 35 pounds only to start gaining it back after the death of my mother in March 2008. I lost all motivation and until recently did not know why until it was mentioned that I was still grieving and suffering from depression. All of a sudden things began to make sense again and I started to return to "me" again. Though I never left Sparks, I can honestly say I was only going through the motions for the past few years. Being on a plateau the last few monthes before my mom passed away did not help my motivation either. Now I am starting to feel good again and I am determined to lose the weight I started to gain back. I refuse to change my icon since I did originally lose it and I am going to keep it and use it for motivation to get me back there again! One of my favorite sayings is "With God all things are possible" so once again I am going to try and lose this weight with His help!

From CML team These lyrics from Tenth Avenue North have spoken to me especially when I am struggling. I hope they minister to you.

"Worn"

Iím Tired Iím worn
My heart is heavy
From the work it takes
To keep on breathing
Iíve made mistakes
Iíve let my hope fail
My soul feels crushed
By the weight of this world

And I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
Thatís frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all thatís dead inside can be reborn
Cause Iím worn

I know I need to lift my eyes up
But I'm too weak
Life just wonít let up
And I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
Thatís frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all thatís dead inside can be reborn
Cause Iím worn

My prayers are wearing thin
Yeah, Iím worn
Even before the day begins
Yeah, Iím worn
Iíve lost my will to fight
Iím worn
So, heaven come and flood my eyes

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
Thatís frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all thatís dead inside can be reborn
Cause all thatís dead inside will be reborn

Though Iím worn
Yeah Iím worn


Please stop by the team and get involved. And please continue to pray for CyclingSandy and her husband.

Brought to you by CML team
These lyrics sung by Crossway have ministered to me time and time again. I hope you can draw strength and inspiration from them also :

When I Hear the Thunder

Sometimes at night I cry myself to sleep
After everybody else has gone to bed
Knowing once again I've gotten in too deep
And the waters will soon be above my head
And I beg of you to change the world around me
So tomorrow won't be looking quite so dim
And I awake to the waters deep enough to drown me
But through it all you taught me how to swim
Chorus:
And when I hear the thunder and I think I'm going under
I remember you're the lifter of my head
You've had a thousand chances to change my circumstances
But thank you, Lord, for changing me instead.

There are times I can't help feeling lost
Like a ship drifting on the open sea
And the wind and waves leave me pitched and tossed
And a storm begins to build inside of me
And I beg of you to change the world around me
As fear and faith are fighting for control
Amid the raging waters swirling all around me
You've become the anchor for my soul
Chorus:
And when I hear the thunder and I think I'm going under
I remember you're the lifter of my head
You've had a thousand chances to change my circumstances
But thank you, Lord, for changing me instead.

Hi Angie,

I joined SP around the same time you did, and I have been a roller coaster for the past few years. I decided to re-commit about a week ago, and one of the things I'm doing is revisiting old teams that I've neglected. The class of our week of joining being one of the most neglected. I noticed you are the leader, and I wanted to let you know that I support you and your efforts to get the team active again. Happy sparking, and I hope to see you around. PS I added you as a friend.

Hi, I can't tell if you are currently active on SP. But I want to tell you that I saw your "secret to success" today. The one about exercising 10 minutes at a time throughout the day till it adds up to a decent amount of exercise. I like that and I think I will plant to employ it especially on days like today when I don't feel like doing any workout at all!

Thanks!

we are similar in age and years married. I added you as a friend!
