To All Veterans Old & New
My Heart of Love Salute YOU
To Honor Your Fight For Freedom
You Did All to Reach Them...
...Them Who Needed A Helping Hand
Fighting & Dying for Your Fellow Man
Even When No Cheers Were Sounded
You Pulled On Your Boots & Rebounded
You Kept Your Word to the Red, White & Blue
You Wanted What Was Right & Fought For What Was True
God Gave You Light
In The Night
And Pulled You Through When You Felt Alone
Serving Our Country Is Never Wrong
So Honor and Recognition is Well Deserved
I Send My Thanks To ALL Who Served!
By Deborah Carr Edwards An Air Force Lifer Veteran's dtr.
LOVE YOU ALL WHO SERVED AND WHO ARE STILL SERVING AND THOSE WHO ARE NOW SERVING IN HEAVEN!
Satisfaction...Knowing that when I arrive at the park to walk that as I take that first step...I'm hesitant...but as I take many more steps I'm pumped and the music makes me smile and the birds make me smile and the squirrels make me walk even faster . Then I've walked 1...2...3...4...5 miles and I'm so SATISFIED!
Moving is much more than trying to lose weight. It Invigorates me Spirit Soul and Body! It's Like Smiling for my body. The benefits go so much deeper than what people see on the outside but the inside is triple the benefits.
I turn my playlist on at home and I take off into my own world of Soul Train Dancing as I jump around and shimmy my body to the likes of James Brown, Earth Wind & Fire and Jackson 5. Sometimes I'm moving so much I miss the songs.
But I'm MOVING. SATISFACTION!
I'm happy as I strength train. I start slow. I keep going and the end is an almost 10 min cool down and I breathe and smile and say "Thank You Lord! for the Strength You Just Gave Me to Complete This!" I'm so Grateful and Thankful that I have learned to be
SATISFIED AS I WALK IN SATISFACTION OF MOVING MY BODY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!
Happy Tuesday Everyone! How's Your Week Going? I'm Having a Great Week In Advance. No Other Option for Me. I'm Determined to Be Satisfied. God is My Help!
Love You All! Appreciate You Too!
HOW ARE YOU ALL DOING TODAY! READY FOR ANOTHER GREAT MONTH? I AM FOR SURE
So This Is My BIRTHDAY Month. Born on the 22nd! I’m Celebrating Each Day In Some Way In Honor Of My Birthday. Yesterday I Celebrated by Walking 5 miles at the Park. (I couldn’t walk that fast at the Mall…plus It probably was full of people.) I Cleaned My Kitchen Counter of Clutter. Well…Actually a Basket I keep My Foil and the Like In. lol Today I Went To Dollar Tree. See…Simple Things Make Me Happy!
On Another Note. I’m involved in the Write A Novel In A Month and This is The Month. Anyone Can Enter and You Don’t have to be a Professional Writer. You Just Write…They will not read it but only Count the Words. Goal: 50000 Words. Everyone that reaches that Goal Wins A Book or Something Like That. Go To www.nanowrimo.org For more information. I’m already over 2500 words. I’ll get there this year because I’ve been writing all year. IT'S FREE & FUN!
In one of my Teams we are logging our food and Giving ourselves The Happy Face Goodie When for the days we do. Any are welcome to join in rewarding yourself for logging your food.
Something Funny: I walked my 5 miles on yesterday and I was really tired. I saved my strength training for later. In the middle of doing upper body with hand weights I FELL ASLEEP! I woke up at 2:30 a.m. wondering what happened. I was on my 4th move resting. So I had to do lower body today to make up for what I missed.
Just wanted to check in and I will be writing more blogs this month to report on my progress on my writing and how I’m celebrating my birthday month and my inches that keep coming off. I’m Pumped With The Power To Succeed!!!!
Have a GREAT NOVEMBER!
Many Blessings To You All!
As The Sun Flows With Beams So Bright As I Continue To Walk In His Everlasting Light As I Follow To That Which I Believe & Heard As I Make The Final Authority His Holy Word As I Do Unto Others As He Told Me To As I Walk In Love & Love True As I Choose To Live The Life Of Peace As I Embrace The Truth That He's A God of Increase As I Follow His Path That Shall Be FullFilled As I Know That By Jesus' Stripes I AM Healed As I Choose To Live According To His Will For My Life As I Avoid Any Kind of Strife As I Acknowledge Him In All of My Ways As He Prolong My Days As I Never Turn My Back On His Love I Am Assured I Am Destined For Heaven Above!
I’ve been putting off writing a blog but not on purpose. Been trying to keep up with logging my food which takes a little bit of time and getting those workouts completed
daily. But I’m doing pretty well with it all. If I’m not able to log that certain day I always write it down in my “Fitness” Journal. I write down my meals and workout for the day. I also list my scripture reading for that day (Read Through the Bible). In one of my teams this is our Challenge and it has Inspired me to Read and Meditate More. Then there’s the normal journal writing news I sometimes write down. Anything that has a big impact for the day will go in there also. I’ve written in Diaries since childhood. The best way for me to cope…at the time…with being overweight and feeling alone and ostracized. (I spelled that word correctly! Lol)
Journaling is Great for the Soul. It helps get off your heart those Heavy things that shouldn’t be there any way. Sometimes they are. We shouldn’t dwell in them. Move Forward and shake it off. Aim for Peace and Joy in your Hearts. That’s the Way God Wants Us to Live Our Lives. We are not putting our heads in the sand, but we are not dwelling on the negative as if we have no hope. Every situation has Hope. We have to keep it alive. Look at the End of the situation and Expect A Great Outcome. Shall I just Say Look On the BRIGHTER SIDE. See the SUCCESS. That’s the WAY Our Father Sees Everything About Us. Successes. That’s WHO WE ARE to HIM NOW!
So Great Success…What’s on YOUR Plate Today? This is Wing It Wednesday and I’m not sure what I’m having for lunch or dinner. Breakfast is Oatmeal. LoL Of course.
I’m also Walking 4 miles at the Park now up from 3 and have increased my Strength Training to 4 times a week and added extra moves on some days. Still pumping that Cardio Dance and boy are the inches coming off! That’s how I’m Heating it Up in October.
Do What You Need to Do and Can Do With All of Your Heart. God Works With Our Sincere Efforts All the Time. WE CAN DO IT WITH GOD…ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
Love All of My Wonderful Friends! You Make Me Enjoy My Journey of a Lifetime! Thank You for ALWAYS Obeying God. You Say JUST what I NEED to Hear AT the Time.
