Attacks from the enemy!

The enemy has really been busy in our household the last few months! We didn't know to what extent until recently. It has culminated in our son moving out rather sneakily to move in with a girlfriend that we had cautioned him about. True, he is an adult, but our family is in ministry together and it is just such a blow to have a son step away from everything he was raised with, and be with a woman (who claims to be a Christian) say that portions of Scripture are out dated. I know the Lord ...
The enemy has really been busy in our household the last few months! We didn't know to what extent until recently. It has culminated in our son moving out rather sneakily to move in with a girlfriend that we had cautioned him about. True, he is an adult, but our family is in ministry together and it is just such a blow to have a son step away from everything he was raised with, and be with a woman (who claims to be a Christian) say that portions of Scripture are out dated. I know the Lord is still in charge though - even if I was a basket case today at church. Our son removed his membership from our church so as to not incur any church discipline. The woman he is with is 6 years older than him, has had an abortion, lovers, 14 year old daughter, and has really pulled her life out of the pits by her own effort. Materially she is fairly successful - has a home, a motorcycle, a couple cars, a sexy body and flaunts it etc. - a real attraction for a young man, not to mention being able to bend and be everything my son was hoping for. Our son recently came back to the house to get some clothes, etc. when he knew we weren't home. My husband and I met with them twice last week and she basically did all the talking - our son barely said anything. Recently a friend called me and said they had a burden for our son two weeks ago and her and her husband have been praying (as they have gone thru similar things with her daughter). She pointed out that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and that she mostly likely has my son in a curse (how else in my opinion can seem to be going in the opposite path so quickly). They have set mid July as a wedding date - even now, I'm praying our sons eyes are opened and that bond is broken unless they get right with God!
Thank you for letting me vent! I know this is not the end of the story - Praise God!

Fitness Minutes: 32,911

My Goals:
I want to be at a healthy weight by summer of 2010. I have my 35th wedding anniversary in June and I want to get a substantial amount of weight off by then. Keeping God first will be a good start!!
I want to be able to get off of my Blood Pressure meds.
I want to be able to be more active without tiring out.

My Program:
I'm trying to learn to eat only until I'm satisfied and NOT stuffed or even slightly uncomfortable. I tremendously enjoyed the "Thin Within" concept of eating and I want to honor and glorify my God with everything I put into my mouth. Moderation is the key and not making food/drink a god!

Personal Information:
My name is Connie and I live in S. Oregon. My husband and I have been married for 34 years now (as of June 29, 2009) and ALL of our "children" live at home. We basically are a "volunteer" family. We help the elderly in our community with yard work, housework, etc. at no charge. Most weekends finds part of our family volunteering at a camp for at risk youth in the Mountains up out of Ashland. My husband and I cook for the boys camps and our two sons work with the youth. When we're not up there our daughters work at the girls camps. It is very hard but rewarding.

Other Information:
I start my day out reading from the Bible and finding verses that will be an encouragement throughout the day and praying.
The most recent movies that I've watched that were really good are "The Ulimate Gift", "Facing the Giants", and "Flywheel"
I like to read - don't get to do it that much.
I like to cross stitch, but my hands have been giving me lots of trouble in that they get numb when I'm cross stitiching.
