Getting healthy and staying that way

I'm 28 and gained weight during college and marriage and pregnancy. I lost weight before getting pregnant with weight watchers at work program and lost 19 pounds! Since having a baby, I have lost most of the pregnancy weight, but would like to lose more and get back in shape. I work as a receptionist in a doctor's office. I have a 1 yr old daughter, pet guinea pigs, love to read and knit, and I play clarinet.

The weather where I live has been frigid with lost of snow. It is a time of year when being cooped up due to the weather can cause a feeling of loneliness and perhaps even cause turning to food. Here is a Prayer for MidWinter that I have been saying this week.
From the rising of the midwinter sun to its setting,

Scatter the darkness with the light of your love, O Shining One.( I say Jesus)

Make me short on mean thoughts, long on offers words of comfort.

Make me short on being driven, long on paying attention.

Make me short on focusing only on my own, long on looking beyond.

Make me short on obsessive lists, long on spontaneous acts of kindness,

Make me short on mindless activity, long on time to reflect.

Make me short on tradition as a habit, long on rediscovery and re-owning.

Make me short on rushing a tiring, long on walking and wondering.

Make me short on false, festive jollity, long on stilling and rooted joy.

Make me short on guilt, long on being merciful to myself.

Make me short on being overwhelmed, long on peaceableness as I set forth this day.

-from The Celtic Wheel of the Year by Tess Ward

I hope it ministers to you also.

The prayer of my heart this week is found in the lyrics of a song by Hillsong. May we always seek the ways of the Lord on this journey and in life.

Show Me Your Ways
Song by Hillsong Live

Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways
Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways
Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways
Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways

If we look upward, it will be that much harder to drag us down!

Have a blessed week.

No matter what the circumstances are, we have to remember that the Bible says "Give thanks in all things"
Don Moen is one of my favorite Christian music artists. Here are the words to one of his songs, that I hope will minister to you this week. I sing it as a prayer.

Thank You Lord
Song by Don Moen
Bible says it's a good thing to give thanks to the Lord, amen
I come before You today
And there's just one thing that I want to say
Thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
For all You've given to me
For all the blessings I can not see
Thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
With a greatful heart
With a song of praise
With an outstreched arm
I will bless Your name
Thank You Lord
I just wanna thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
I just wanna thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
For all You've done in my life
You took my darkness and gave me Your light
Thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
You took my sin and my shame
You took my sickness and healed all my pain
Thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
With a greatful heart
With a song of praise
With an outstreched arm
I will bless Your name

ON this journey we all need help. Here is a prayer I say to help me. I share it from my heart to yours:
Dear Lord, I look to you in patient expectation. Renew my strength like the wings of eagles.

Help me and uplift me by the power of Your Might. Then I shall go forth in strength and wholeness. I shall run and not be weary. I shall walk and not faint. Amen

A Christmas prayer from my heart to yours:
Dear God, please bless this Christmas with peace, joy, and love. May the happiness of Baby Jesus' coming be felt in your home.

Remember to visit the manger and worship with the angels and shepherds as you prepare for Christmas.
