Spring is here! In like a lion......out like a lamb. Old Man Winter.........we say "Scram". The streams are full from the melted snow. Soon will be time to plant and to hoe. The birds are chirping high in the tree. Spring is arriving.....that we can see. Flowers rising from their wintry beds Crocus and tulips raising their heads. Bunnies hopping around in the clover. At long last..........Winter is Over.
I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of all thy doings--Psalm 77:11-12
The winters where I live bring long periods of gray, overcast days. During these gloomy, cold days, I often think about spring. I think about flowers blooming, warmer weather, sunny skies, and walks without winter coats, hats, mittens, and scarves. Happy thoughts of spring often get me through the depressing days of winter.
The same principle, I have found, works when I am going through heartbreaking or painful times in my life. The days are like the dreary, cold, lifeless days of winter; but when I think about "spring" times, I feel better. I think how the Lord has blessed me and answered my prayers. I remember how God has made the sun shine on my gloomy days. Then the stressful, difficult, heartbreaking times do not seem as painful, for I know that I am not going through them alone. I know that once again light will illumine the darkness and that the cold will be banished by the warmth of God's love.

Everything is possible when you believe it's possible. It's your mind that sets your limits. What you envision you can do, you can do. What your mind can conceive and believe, your mind can achieve. Success is actually a state of mind. Start thinking of yourself as a success. Believe in yourself. Know in your heart, that you can do the job you've set out to do.
If you think you can, you can.
I believe this applies to more than helthy living and weight loss, but to everything! Hope you are having a great day! 1961 days ago
