Happily married for 50 years now, and age 71 - and although I have a long way to go yet, I have lots of HOPE now that I am back on SP. I am determined to stick this out to the end (re: pounds to lose) , and then to maintain it for life. That is the key for me...keeping it off. At year's end I have lost 20 pounds here, and aim for 20 lbs more in 2014!

We are truly blessed, with a beautiful daughter and terrific grandson and great son-in-law. Our family may be small, but we are close knit, and live near to one another - all of us in the same province. God is good. We are retired but involved in a good (Baptist) church, and serving the Lord brings us joy. Nothing can compare with the joy of His Presence, and I pray every one who reads this page will experience this life as well, with Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and Friend.

~Quote: Ch. Spurgeon
It will go well with us when we are well before God.
~ Mere Christianity
Quote; by C.S. Lewis
[To have Faith in Christ] means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way. Not doing these things in order to be saved, but because He has begun to save you already. Not hoping to get to Heaven as a reward for your actions, but inevitably wanting to act in a certain way because a first faint gleam of Heaven is already inside you.

    You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

    Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

    Again, Congratulations Beautiful! emoticon
