My Journey


My Journey


I ran across Sparkpeople quite by accident, in March 2007 , while I was searching for places to help me lose weight.
I joined and it has been a God send.
I have learned so much. I was in starvation mode from eating only700 or 800 calories a day for many years, so it took me about a yearr to retrain my brain and eat more food and drink water.
Btu after the year was up, the weight came off pretty quicikly.
I just wish it did not ...

My Journey


I ran across Sparkpeople quite by accident, in March 2007 , while I was searching for places to help me lose weight.
I joined and it has been a God send.
I have learned so much. I was in starvation mode from eating only700 or 800 calories a day for many years, so it took me about a yearr to retrain my brain and eat more food and drink water.
Btu after the year was up, the weight came off pretty quicikly.
I just wish it did not come back on so easily.

I was a member of the Red Hot Chili Steppers and Roaring Red Rocketeers on the BLC team serving as co-captain and then captain.
Then I stepped down for one round, and started a new team on Sprks- "Super Charged and Ready- Team Biggest Loser."
Lots of positive energy; a great bunch of people and all of us getting healthy.
I came back to the BLC , with the Light Blue Bombshells and lthn sat out a round , and now I am with the Ivory Falcons , having first served as co-captain and now am captain of the team.

The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

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.

Happened by your page today and realized that my DH and I share your wedding anniversary - but we have been married 33 years. Pretty cool.
May God bless you both and give you many more years together! emoticon
