    Ha ha! I don’t like swimming! But I love walking!

    I’ve lost about 4 stone over 7 years. 3 more to go. It’s up and down, but overall it’s down, so that’s cool!

    Do you journal daily?

    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.

    Elaine, sorry to read that you've been struggling over the last few weeks. The reason I've only just read about it is because I've arrived back from holiday today so I'm trying to catch up with everyone.
    How come you've given up on Diet Coke? Is there some medical reason for stopping only I would say that as long as you don't drink gallons of it, the odd can won't do you any harm. I only ever drink water or diet coke whereas my hubby Pete drinks caffeine free diet coke. We must admit though that it has to be the real diet coke as nothing else tastes the same or as good.
    Keep your chin up sweetie I know you can't do much about Michaels moods but you are still doing great things for yourself. My weight often fluctuates but you just have to keep pushing.
    Take care of yourself & remember you have all your friends here on Sparkpeople cheering you on.

    Lucky you to get to see swans while walking!!! We have them only occasionally in our city park as they are passing through....

    I understand that they can be quite unfriendly, and sometimes even aggressive and dangerous..... have you ever seen one in attack mode?
