When I realized I had gained to much weight
| current weight: 209.0
Because I love you I want to share with you a music video that really uplifted me today. I just knew you would enjoy it too. Go to my latest blog, "The Lord's Prayer". I think you will find it a "treat".

It sure has been too long since I checked in with you. I am afraid I let lifes vicicitudes get to me this last month, what with the fires here in my part of the state, being evacuated and threatened to be evacuated again. That was only part of it and I won't go into the whole scenareo but suffice it to say it was enough to send me over the edge and this last week I ate wrong and when I do that even the little I did I gain water weight fast. In one week I gained four and a half lbs. But I am back with the program and hope to stick with it.
How are you doing anyway. I have missed talking to you too. I will improve my attitude and keep check better. Love you, Charlene

My goodness, your estimation of me is overwhelming. Yes it is a new week and I thank you for stopping by and saying hello. You my dear woman have brought smiles to me today. I will be remembering you all day in my own endeavours to overcome the flesh for the glory of God.
I know God wants us to look like angels. Angels are beautiful. But more than that He wants us to act like angels and have His mind set. I went to a church conference yesterday and was reminded by the speaker that God's ways are not our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. All we have to do to know God's thoughts and His will is look at the commandments, They are the will of God. But too many of us have our own will and thoughts. God's will and thought is "Keep the Commandment". Our will is "Oh that little indiscretion doesn't matter that much. I can lie a little and no big deal.
We can go on and on. In my church there are more commandments than just the 10. We have what is called the Word of Wisdom that is a law of health and a commandment for us as LDS people. This was a revelation given in the later part of the 1800's to our first prophet in these latter days.
It tells us what is not good for our bodies and what is. There is a promise at the end that is given to all those who live the Word of Wisdom and walk in obedience to the commandments. It is beautiful! We shall run and not be weary, walk and not faint, have health in the navel and marrow in the bones, find hidden treasures of knowledge and the destroying angel shall pass us by.
All these health rules have proven to be true in the twentieth century. But we as weak individuals who have acquired bad habits and not had the faith to adhere to the Word of Widom like we should, need extra help in doing so. His way and thought is "Live the Word of Wisdom". My way was oh just a little of that won't hurt, and instead of eating in moderation like advised I ate excessively and I have been ill.
But no more! I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. I certainly haven't been able to run and not be weary, but that is going to change. Thank goodness He does not leave us alone to accomplish His will. Thank goodness He has given us the gift of each other not to mention His strengthing gifts of courage, faith, hope, charity, trust and an eye single to His glory.
I sure cannot take any credit to myself for any good I might do. I give Him the credit because I can do nothing of myself only what I see that Jesus does and is still doing.
We are going to do this. We can, with God, accomplish all He desires for us, because He is faithful who has promised. That because Jesus payed the price for our sins, we can come the the throne of grace boldly and receive help in time of need. If we lack courage, and ask for it in Jesus name, Father will give us courage. If we lack hope, he'll give us hope and so on.
All we have to do is accept that we are not perfect, love ourselves anyway and rely wholly upon the merits of Jesus Christ to save us. If we don't know what our problem is all we have to do is ask God to show us our weakness and He tell us and then He will make it a strength. It is all tied to loving like Christ. I know you have read 1 Corinthians 13 where in is a discription of what charity is. It embodies all that we need to be successful.
Well, I must stop for now. Sorry for the sermon. :) I sort of got carried away.
Have a wonderful day, my sweet Niecie!
