I joined SP on March 31, 2013

I'm starting over.....again.

I am hard-wired to be a prodigal who wastes my health, wealth, time, and life on extravagant junk that destroys me. But I seek to change my ways, and, thereby, change my life, moment by moment, choice by choice, hour by hour, day by day.

I don't want to be a prodigal anymore!

Little choices + honesty + consistency + time = Success!

    You know, I get so wrapped up in the struggle to reach the goal line that I forget to simply live the journey. My goal for summer 2015 is to simply live it; to keep moving forward, even if I stumble along the way. It is the lifestyle I want, to walk the road with faithful fervor. So I am going to focus on simply living it.

    Trust in the Lord, and do good;
    Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
    (Psalm 37)

    We can do it!

    Thanks for checking up on me. I am hanging in there. Went for a walk today and then played soccer with my son for 30 minutes while Madison had practice.

    Thanks so much for the nice photo comments. I love my little cuties so much. I miss them everyday when I am at work, but we are always excited to see each other when we pick them up :)
