Fitness Minutes: 662

My Goals:
I would like to lose some weight first of all, get fitter than I am, I used to be able to walk 4 miles a day, now can't walk down to the end of the block. My goal is to get healthier.

My Program:
For now my Program is watching what I eat, doing some cardio and some weight training. Going easy at first. I usually dig in gungho and then poop out in a couple of days because I did too much.

Personal Information:
I am 68 years old, had colon cancer last year. Thank you to my Lord, they got it all with surgery, so it gives more incentive to get rid of some of this weight. I just had a handful of chips, what makes a person do that. THAT is what I have to change in myself. I have 4 grandchildren, 3 boys and 1 girl. 3 live in North Dakota and one in Washington. I will be married to my husband for 50 years this year. Another incentive for me. I have a daughter who lives 20 minutes from me and a son in ND.

Other Information:
I love to read, I am just learning about being a Christian. Thanks to my daughter. I love to work in the yard, do puzzles. I crochet, usually make baby blankets. Sometimes I sell them, but mostly for friends. My email address is if anybody would like to correspond.

"The Fountain Of God"

"We can truly be at peace
In the shadow of His wings
There we find release for our souls
From life’s many stressful things
He gives to us new strength
When we are feeling weak
And leads us beside the fountain that flows
From heaven to the valleys so deep
Where we can wade in His blessings
Immersed in His Spirit divine
Finding true refreshment from God
For our bodies, our souls and minds"

"Refreshment For Our Souls"

"When we call upon the Lord
He answers us in our need
He refreshes us with living water
Beside rivers of blessing He leads

For when we quietly meditate
And wait upon the Lord
He will speak into our hearts
And reveal to us much more

We shall find our souls refreshed
And a new hope shall emerge
Then we shall begin to worship Him
As He speaks to us His word

Our spirits need to be refreshed
As we quietly spend some time
Alone in our Lord’s holy presence
For it’s there that we shall find

A greater sense of Almighty God
His love, His mercy and peace
The worries that we have in life
We find will one day cease"

Merry Christmas!

“He was created of a mother whom He created. He was carried by hands that He formed. He cried in the manger in wordless infancy. He, the Word, without whom all human eloquence is mute.” ~Augustine

Dear Friend, Hope you have a blessed week-end.
I love this poem and prayer! HUGS! Jenny

"Direct Me, O Lord"
by M.S.Lowndes

"Direct me, O Lord
To where you want me to be
Give light to my steps
And a lamp to my feet

Give me your wisdom
So I’ll know which road to take
And know the twists and turns
And when I need to wait

All these things O Lord
Are important in our walk
So we won’t go the wrong way
Forgetting what you’ve taught

Let us know your will
The plans you have for us
So we may fulfill our destiny
And be walking in your love

So that others may also
Come to know your ways
And follow after you O Lord
And walk within your grace."
