HELLO ALL,

WELCOME! to my Spark Page.

Come, sit down and have a cup of tea while we get to know each other!

Hope you enjoy your stay!

LET'S START ANEW!

A new year calls for a new beginning and a new start.
I am starting once again with the intent to do better than this
past year. I have done this in the past and I know it is possible to
succeed in achieving my goals.

HELLO ALL,

WELCOME! to my Spark Page.

Come, sit down and have a cup of tea while we get to know each other!

Hope you enjoy your stay!

LET'S START ANEW!

A new year calls for a new beginning and a new start.
I am starting once again with the intent to do better than this
past year. I have done this in the past and I know it is possible to
succeed in achieving my goals.

Last year's verse still applies:

"The LORD says, “Forget what happened before,
and do not think about the past.
Look at the new thing I am going to do.
It is already happening. Don’t you see it?
I will make a road in the desert
and rivers in the dry land."

Isaiah 43:18-19 NCV

But this year I am adding two others to it:

Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you.
Matthew 6:33.

...with God all things are possible
Matthew 19:26

Keep God first in your life and let's reach those goals!

Hey Sue!

Sorry it's been so long since I've chatted with you. Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith. Awesome. I listen to contemporary Christian music in my car all the time, and I've gotten my co-worker to tune in to it a time or two. God is always working.

We celebrated my dad's 84th birthday yesterday at the nursing home. It turned out great. My sister and her friend came down from about 1 1/2 hours away, my brother and his wife from about an hour away, and my dad's brother, his lady friend, his daughter and her husband came from Wisconsin, from 3 hours away and 6 hours away. And my cousin's wife showed up from Indiana - a couple of hours away at least. Dad kept crying as the guests popped up. He was so happy. We had decorated a room they gave us for the party and had balloons and presents and cake and ice cream. My brother brought Kentucky Fried Chicken with all the sides. It couldn't have gone better.

And more good news. Dad moves into the VA nursing home a week from Tuesday. I will be so relieved once he gets there. I know his care will be much better and he will be happier.

Mom and I have been doctoring - it isn't fun getting old. Between work and the parental units, I am usually exhausted. I need some vacation time. But I would probably use that to take care of paperwork and get caught up on house cleaning and whatever else comes up, and something ALWAYS comes up.

Glad to hear that you are keeping busy and starting your fall challenge. Best of luck! Not that you'll need it. Showing up and doing the work will make it happen. You can do it!

The 100 days to weight loss starts whenever you want. There are two Spark Teams for 100 days. I joined the one where Linda Spangler, the author, is one of the co leaders. They suggest you start on a Monday, but that is just so you can see who is starting at the same time. You can start anytime. I got my book on my Nook. Hugs, Laurel
