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!

Well, here we are in 2015...wow!...another year to renew our health and fitness goals. The past year was an exciting one and many goals were met, but for me it ended on a slow note.

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!

Well, here we are in 2015...wow!...another year to renew our health and fitness goals. The past year was an exciting one and many goals were met, but for me it ended on a slow note.
So this year it is time to rev things up again and continue the successes of this past year.

This year I want to put God first in my life and let Him lead me on this journey He has set before me.
So some of the verses from last year still apply for me:

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

And the reminder that...

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

To these I add a third one to help motivate me and others who might stop by my page:

Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Phil 3: 12-14

With God's help, may we seek Him in all we do and reach the goals He has for us this year!

Ireland! How exciting. Our librarian's sun just got back from Nepal. They are based in Colorado, but travel the world spreading the Good News. They've done a lot of good work and we're glad they're home safe and sound. The second quake hit while they were there. I'm sure Ireland will be much safer.

Hope you're enjoying your summer. All we have here is rain, rain, and then more rain. Ugh! Come on sunshine! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Well, let's see. I had a week vacation a couple of weeks ago. Didn't even get on Spark (shame on me!). But I relaxed and putzed around the house, getting little projects done. It was so nice. Had some sunny days and some rainy days. The perfect mix.

Sounds like you'll be busy this summer. I have no major plans. No trips planned. Just trying to slow down, de-stress, eat better, move more. The same old. We'll see if God has any surprises in store for me.

My sister had a 5 hour interview on Monday for a job. She's been out of work for 6 months after a downsizing where she worked. We're praying that she gets the job. She would be a research librarian at a medical college just around the corner from where she lives. We are trusting in God to know and do what's best for my sister, but it's hard not to think we know best. Hopefully we will know next week.

Glad to hear things are moving along with your knee. Take good care.
