I am trying to live each day "in the moment" and be mindful of how I am living my life. My goal is to become the most authentic, true version of myself that God created me to be.

This New Year I want to focus on the "word" I have chosen for 2017 and how it relates to my Spark Journey. I'm going to chose a new quote each month and see where it leads!


This is my motivation text for January 2017:

"You need to learn how to RELAX and trust what God has for you." Stephanie Carroll, Stephanie. My Conversations with God Book 4

January can be a "slow" month, business-wise for me. It also is a stress-filled month as I have to have all of my business/tax info complete for my CPA by 1/31.
SP provides the tools for me to be healthy regardless of my circumstances. I do not need to stress/emotionally eat during January!
Going to read all SP articles I can on stress reducing, and TRUST that I will take what I need, put it to good use, and leave the rest!
I am going to TRUST my Spark teams to give me the support I need!

    Good morning, Sunshine!

    I love to go to morning mass. However, last week our priest was away getting rabies shots. There was a bat loose in the rectory and he felt he had been scratched. The bat was never apprehended.

    This week I don't know what happened. I've driven to church the past 2 mornings to find no mass. Because I don't attend weekend masses at my own church, I didn't have a bulletin to let me know there wouldn't be masses. Usually I pick one up at daily mass and Father will announce at daily masses if there is a change for the following week. I better call someone today and see what's up.

    I love receiving the Eucharist as often as possible. I love being in Church. I love adoration. Our God is so good and so merciful. Where would we be without his grace?

    Have a blessed day, my friend! emoticon

    Hi, my Spark Friend! Thanks for not giving up on me while I was "AWOL" so to speak! I am back on Spark People. I regained some weight from all the post-flooding stress-eating, I must confess! I am resolved to get back on my TREK to good health! Spark HUGS, Robyn

    Your church bazaar sounded awesome. You must have a fairly large church. Years ago I think we had around 300 families, but now maybe 1/3 of those are gone. We've been through a few changes and a few problems and some people don't care to work through things. They just leave.

    We had no vendors, but parishioners donated items for sale and for raffles. We also have a lady that makes rosaries and she had those exhibited for sale. The glass rosaries (which I had never seen before) sold for $12. I had previously purchased 14 of the plastic bead rosaries from her for my 7th grade CCD class - I teach at another church in the next town over. I was very tired when I got home, but very happy to have been able to serve.

    Have a great week! emoticon
