Northern Minnesota Mom

I am a 52-year old single mother of two sons, working in a research and outreach center. I joined SP in May of 2009 and it is the best thing I have done for myself in a long time.

When I left my marriage (November, 2008) I was overweight, depressed and had very little self-esteem. Today I am down to a size 16 (started out a 22-24), am no longer depressed and my self-esteem grows every day.

When I left my marriage (November, 2008) I was overweight, depressed and had very little self-esteem. Today I am down to a size 16 (started out a 22-24), am no longer depressed and my self-esteem grows every day. I have my bad days but SP has taught me how to deal with the ups and downs without falling back into unhealthy habits; and my Spark Friends support and motivate throughout each and every day. I believe that I will reach my weight loss and life goals by using the tools I've learned; and as long as SP is here, I will be here too.

SP, its staff and its members are nothing short of a miracle in my life.

I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

{This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }


'Twas the night before Jesus came
and all through the house
Not a creature was praying,
Not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!


(by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.
