SparkVersary !!

Thursday, July 03, 2014

3 Years now on Spark People

Time I use on it is my biggest complaint.... and that is will power. Better to be on the computer rather than eating!

The tracking is important as it keeps me going...Fruits & Vegetables..Bible Reading....Exercise and Cardio. This is the easiest tracking system I have seen...and It is free.

The TEAM community...takes a lot of time to maintain. But I would feel I was letting down some friends if I drop some teams... Trying to make up my mind to drop back to just the tracking.

I will check back in 6 months and see where things are then!

    emoticon on your 3 year anniversary. Your sparkpage gives me pause. Lots of nasty stuff happening in our world. Thank s for describing your own connections with African countries. My husband has had health aides from some of those countries. Nigeria for one. In fact our daughter almost went there with one of the aides. Just happy to know you. chris

    Congrats!!

With each season of life, changes are made to keep our sanity. I'm sure everyone will totally understand as we've all had to make changes from time to time. Do what is best for you to keep your motivation up so you can be the best you and the best with those teams/friends who help you the most and you want to help the most.

    I agree that Spark is taking up too much of my time. More time spent catching up on teams than actual tracking for me. :P I'm also considering a fast from Spark. Let's pray about it and see what happens. emoticon

    I pared my teams by half a while back, and it has ended up being a good thing.

Real Young Women abducted...45 days ago

Friday, May 30, 2014

Did you know 45 days ago....230 real young women were abducted from their boarding school during the night. Here are a link that helped me to think in terms of individual girls rather than one sad event.

    I almost cannot function after seeing this slide show. I thought I "got it" before but now, now I truly get it as much as a girl in Iowa can. How can we help these poor girls?

Stand Alone, if necessary

Monday, May 19, 2014

So I attended a Rally in support of the Nigerian families ...BRING BACK OUR GIRLS
I made signs to wear in 'sandwich' style, I dressed in one of my African fabric outfits with a red Tee shirt.
I arrived at the designated place and time.
No one else was there....that is, no one wearing red and carrying a sign.

But I stayed, talked to people who walked by. Called out "Please pray for the kidnapped girls" to passing cars.

Was interviewed by the local newspaper reporter

How does it feel to Stand Alone? Lonely.

I stayed for the whole hour, attracting attention as I could.
It was not too difficult, because I think of the 230 Girls who are abducted into slavery. I think of their families in anguish.
There was no Danger for me in Standing Alone on the square....But I did remember the story of Daniel and his friends, refusing to bow to the golden idol when all others bowed and they stood up straight and tall and were sentenced to death.
In Nigeria at this time, entering a church could cause your death. Going to school (male or female) could cause your death....being known as a Christian in the community could cause your death.

No, to stand alone on the square.....was lonely. But not DANGEROUS

    You ma'am are an inspiration to me in my very soul! Thank you for standing strong, even when you had to stand alone. Sadly these girls aren't getting the media and crowd coverage that they deserve and would get if it had happened in another nation. I'm praying for them daily!

Video of abducted Nigerian girls...we pray and pray

Monday, May 12, 2014

NEW on May 12.....Picture of 130 girls in one place able to sit, stand, talk. This brings hope of a rescue for some being possible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsxG
jAsOaNg&feature=share
News story comes from BBC which is well respected.
However, parents have not yet been shown the video for a chance to identify if these are the abducted girls.

Please continue to pray and share on social media
