Psalm 127:3-4 Message Bible

Don't you see that children are God's best gift?
the fruit of the womb his generous legacy?
Like a warrior's fistful of arrows
are the children of a vigorous youth.
Oh, how blessed are you parents,
with your quivers full of children!

Today is My son Matthew's 21st Birthday.
It's so hard to see him grown. I want to keep him a baby but I have to let him go. We live together and have a pretty good relationship. I am so proud of him and I know he will go even farther. He's in a stable relationship and I really love his girlfriend too. God has truly Blessed me and I thank HIM for this Blessing. Another reason to stay healthy. Now I had to make Him this Sweet Potato Gooey Butter Cake:

I'm just so proud to be a parent and thank God for the honor. I know you all are parenting someone in some way. I did even before I ever had children. I am still learning and now I need to learn how to let them be grown. emoticon

Hope Your May Started Strong.

I joined the Spring Bootcamp and I expect Great results. I need a real change this month. Well I am thankful for the little things for sure. Now I want to see BIGGER & BETTER. With God I will do it!!!
Blessings to you All and Join me in Saying:

    God bless you & your son on his birthday! I know I too feel excitement on my childrens' birthday too. So you are blessing too because your son was brought up by a God fearing mother and he too is cleaving to your ways.

Love you much Deb & enjoy everyday!

I know I have progressed this month. The Scale is not my measurement and it shouldn't be yours either. There are many ways to measure your progress in every area.

Fitness & Health is Coming into View! emoticon

Another month is about to be over. I happy with my fitness accomplishment. I am losing inches. I hid the scale and pulled it out all weekend. emoticon

I'm making better food choices and lost 1lbs according to the hidden scale. emoticon

No matter what happened all month long lets take this week and just work harder and stronger than we've ever. Don't let past mistakes or failures get you down.
This Journey is one day at a time and let's do it one day at a time.

We all are Winners and NOTHING can stop us NOW!
Get in there and Dig Deep. emoticon

We were created to be Successful in EVERY endeavor of life. So...Just Do It~~~

Love You Much!
Happy Monday

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you, too, can become great.

- Mark Twain, writer and satirist

On this Journey and Life period it's very important that we surround ourselves with those who are for us and will speak Life into us. We never need those who belittle what we do or who we are.

We are Created for Success and to be a Light to the World. Some People don't like when others succeed. We have to keep away from those who eat away at who we are and what we are doing.

When you do that you will find that your heart feels Fresh. Don't put up with what you have control of. You have Control of Your Life. Keep it filled with Peace. Joy. Love.

Have a Great Week! Many Blessings for You All to Have a Great Journey.
Do Not EVER Give Up on Yourself. You are Worth the Effort You Put out Daily for Health and Fitness Benefits. I'm Cheering For Us All!

    Honey, there just comes a time when you just stop making time for those people that keep you down. The Lord didn't tell us that we have to be foolish & stay focused on those who don't have our interests in their hearts. The people we love are the ones that will do us in if we let them. I accept you as a positive christian sister in my life Deb!!

God bless & keep you always!

Happy Palm Sunday To You All!!! emoticon emoticon

I am so excited to let you know that I completed the 5k under the time I trained at. I use my Ipod when I workout and I keep in beat of whatever song is playing. That makes my time longer. But I was able to complete my walk/jog at the High School track in 61 mins. Even with the knee I jogged my even laps and race walked the others. I thank God for the strength to just get out there and do it. emoticon

Next is to get my time down and pump up my music! emoticon

Thank You Spark Family for all of your confidence and support in me. I am so overwhelmed by so much Love you Always show me. This is a Team effort and I love the motivation and encouragement that you bring to my journey. emoticon

Let's keep beating our past triumphs to better ourselves even more. I love competing with me! It makes it such a special thing to do. emoticon

Love You much and Have a Blessed and Prosperous Day filled With ALL the FULLNESS of GOD! emoticon

    Way to go! So glad it was such a positive experience. I walked a 5k in the fall and love the feel of excitement of all those around me headed off to the finish line. I found that it really upped my time with their motivation.
