January 2009: I have struggled with my weight for the past few years. I have continued to lose, just to gain it all back and then a little more each time. I really need to be faithful and determined and continue to lose it and keep it off for my own health!
Update Novermber 2009: I have now been on Spark People for over 10 months. I have lost over 25 pounds with SP!! I never imagined I would be able to do it and I look forward to the next 15 - 20 pounds, although I do not think they will be quite as easy!
In the past 10 months, I have jogged 3 5ks and one 7 mile race... I never imagined I could do this at 43 years of age!! Thanks Spark People and all my special Spark Friends!!! (((hugs)))
* To race The Bix (7 mile race) again and beat my time from last time! (1:50)
* To lose weight and learn balance in everything.
I am using Sparkpeople to help keep me motivated and accountable. The information and tools available on Spark People are so valuable to reaching goals and learning about health, nutrition, and exercise!
My name is Margie and I am 45 years old.
I have a wonderful husband who is my very best friend!!! He is the pastor of Grace Baptist Church.
I have 5 fantastic children who are in Bible college or high school (homeschooled).
I love to sew, quilt, make cards, scrapbook, bake and decorate cakes, any kinds of crafts, crochet, etc...

Hope you enjoy the following poem...
We Are Friends
Whether the day is good or bad,
Whether I'm feeling happy or sad,
If I have a need, you’ll comprehend;
You’ll be there to share and be a friend.
Other people may fill my day,
But never in such an important way;
We support each other ‘round all life’s bends,
It feels so good that we are friends.

Hello my Friend,
Wishing you & your family a blessed New Year 2014 filled with God's Abundant Blessings...
A New Year With The Lord
A new year is about to unfold
With new opportunities to explore
Doors will open for new experiences,
New adventures with the Lord
Remember not the former things,
The things of this past year,
The Lord will do new things in us,
Much more than we are aware
For He will make a way for us
As we put our trust in Him
And He will guide our every step
By His presence we have within
What God has placed within our hearts,
We find we'll be able to do
If we look for the opportunities,
We'll see the door to go through
We mustn't let anything hold us back
But rise up and take our place
And be all that God wants us to be
With a fresh touch of His grace

In closing I leave you with the following poem!
Christmas Candy Cane Poem about Jesus
Look at the Candy Cane
What do you see?
Stripes that are red
Like the blood shed for me
White is for my Savior
Who’s sinless and pure!
“J” is for Jesus My Lord, that’s for sure!
Turn it around
And a staff you will see
Jesus my shepherd
Was born for Me!
