"God gave us the Gift of Life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well." Voltaire

I started my journey again Feb 15 2010!!

To date I have lost 42 pounds!!! I still have a ways to go but getting there is just as exciting as arriving when your journey is SPARKED with purposeful eating, meaningful exercise and the many friends found in the SPARK PEOPLE community who encourage you from day to day!

What a freedom I have once again to take charge of my life and to dedicate it to the Glory of God!

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service." -- Rom 12:1

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." -- Rom 12:2

In Memory of my wonderful Mother-In-Law...

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see.
If the sun should rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things we never got to say.
(For the full poem see Blog for 10/24/12)
