Yes I love to dance and create and praise the Lord!
I am a pretty happy camper, but throughout the difficult years of my life, loosing my husband Joel 2010 to cancer, loosing my home, and stress of being alone. Then in 2012 I got remarried...but 10 months later he walked out! I have used food as a way to cope, comfort and numb my feelings. Now I am 64 I have moved to Sunny Costa Rica and I don't even recognize the person in the mirror. I struggle to loose this weight, but since July I have lost 40 lbs and I just came back to Sparkpeople .. I have my Sparky friends,they lift me up when I am down, It hasn't been easy, but I am making some better choices...little sparks at a time, SOON I will be SPARKALIOUS!

    Hey Nan

    Are you still out there? I haven't seen you for a while.
    We are still praying for you.

    Lots of love

    Thank you for the gift of you!

    There are promises and poems
    Silly rhymes and songs
    There are storms and rainbows
    Sunshine and sometimes snow . . .

    There is drought and there is rain
    And dances that do the same
    There are flowers and blue skies
    And a million reasons why . . .

    There are fantasies and dreams
    Surprises and many schemes
    There are waterfalls and seas
    Mountains and many trees . . .

    There is laughter and there is pain
    Scars that will always remain
    There is happiness and sorrow
    Hopes of a new tomorrow . . .

    There are seasons to behold
    Many stories to be told
    There are folks who are blessed
    There are those who have less . . .

    There is uncertainty and fear
    Love for those we hold dear
    Yes, those for whom we care
    And lift up in our prayers . . .

    There are moments we are down
    And many dreams to be found.
    When all comes into view
    I realize my friend, that . . .
    there is only one you.

    Thank you for the gift of you!

    A Thanksgiving Poem

    May your stuffing be tasty
    May your turkey be plump
    May your potatoes and gravy
    have nary a lump
    May your yams be delicious
    and your pies take the prize
    and may your
    thanksgiving dinner
    stay off your thighs!!!

    Our Everyday Acts Of Worship

    Everything we do
    Is an act of worship
    That brings pleasure and delight
    When it's done for God,
    It touches His heart
    And is our God-given purpose in life

    For God created
    Everything that exists
    For His glory and His pleasure
    And we, His children,
    Have so much worth,
    More valuable than priceless treasure

    For worshipping God
    Is truly a lifestyle,
    Affecting everything we do
    It's not just in singing
    Spiritual songs,
    But in our everyday happenings too

    As we minister to those
    We see in need,
    Offering to them our service,
    And even the mundane,
    Everyday things,
    To God, they're acts of worship

    We need to be offering
    As a dedication
    Every area of our lives
    As an act of spiritual
    Worship to God
    And a most holy sacrifice

    For God cares so much
    About every detail
    No matter how great or small,
    For God will walk
    In our every day life
    As we establish Him as Lord.
