Just Beautiful Regardless.

“Something Beautiful”
Amazing was the Grace
That flowed from your face
No one can replace
Or erase
That voice from the Gift Giver
Now…you see Forever…
Something Beautiful!
The gift to the world
Even as a girl
As your skirts twirled
Notes of praise you hurled
So naturally…
And free…
Something Beautiful!
Your poise and beauty
Gave dignity to your duty
As you crooned
Many hearts swooned
A gift so extraordinary
Gave challenge to the canary…
Something beautiful!
Seeing your first interview in that baseball hat
(I wondered about that)
But we all could see
God’s Glory
And His Hand Freely Anointed You
His Love shined bright and true
I saw…
Something Beautiful!

To Honor Whitney Houston

And This One I Wrote Inspired By The Voice:

In a blink of an eye you went into the Light
All of a sudden you were out of sight
Carried by the Angels to the Throne of the King
Where He commanded you to sing
For those left behind
Praying that they all will redeem the time
For it won’t be long
When we all will sing His Song
High in the Heavenly Dome
Where we can’t do anything wrong
Oh to see that day
Our Jesus in Array
Dancing down the streets of gold
Such beauty to behold
What a glorious Time
As He invites us to come and dine
Singing the Heavenly song
To never do anything wrong
In a blink of an eye
We’ll be far above the sky!

  What beautiful poetry to honor Whitney! Indeed, she had the voice of an angel. How fortunate that we can still listen to her marvelous talent on this earth.

This is TULSA, OK My Hometown!

Good Morning and Happy Thursday!!!

It’s a GREAT Time to be Alive!

I’ve already completed my lower body core strength work this morning and plan on walking and working out with my Core Rhythms DVD. I enjoy these 2 new dvd’s that I’ve had but never tried them out. My endurance is more than when I viewed them so now I AM DOING them! This is part of the journey that makes you want to shot from the rooftops: I’M MAKING PROGRESS!!!

Had oatmeal with almond milk, banana and low carb yogurt for breakfast. Lunch will be barley soup and salad, and sandwich. Dinner will be a Lean Cuisine plus broc and carrots. Two snacks or three if I need another but I’m making it happen with staying on the low end of my calories. I CAN DO THIS!

Working on the book through the day also. I normally work in the evenings but I need sleep and since I’ve been going to sleep (actually falling) earlier I rather write in the day. I set my own schedule. I’m also working on my Greeting Card business so I’m putting action to my Words and Believing that I WILL get it going THIS YEAR!!!
I know you all are Making It Happen in your lives. Many Blessings to a Wonderful Thursday! Enjoy the day outside if you can. That’s where I’m taking my walk because we are going to be in the mid 70’s today and I’m taking advantage of that. Walking is so easy to do…Singing…”One foot in front of the other!”

Holla@Jesus!!! Our Strength!!!

    I love that you blogged your meals today. That's great that it helps you stay on track. I actually had to get up by 4am to take hubby have is rotator cuff operated on. He is home now sleeping soundly after I had to help him eat. I do that for my kids but didn't see this our future. Thanks for your blog today it was very helpful!

God bless & enjoy everyday!

So how has your month been? I guess mines have been busy since this is my first Blog of the month. I have been involved with the January Jumpstart Challenge and all the extra workouts keep me busy. I kept up my normal strength work and amount of cardio minutes and I tell you towards the end I was very fatigued. I’m analyzing my workout plan to decrease the time and increase the intensity. I think that will help me meet my weight loss goal this year. The new videos that we were introduced to were great and I plan on using them again. I believe this will be the GREATEST Year I’ve been on Spark and I PLAN on reaching my weight loss goal THIS YEAR…2012! emoticon

I want to thank all that gave me goodies or comment on my feed or page and I have not recognized you. I do see and I get an email every time someone comments on my friend feed. Forgive me for my slowness. I’ve been working hard on my book…rewrite…and I feel good about my progress. I have a lot of other goals to achieve this year that I am working hard on and I expect to achieve much this year. emoticon

I am determined to be all that I’m supposed to be. Using ALL the Gifts that God gave me FREELY so that I can have to give to those who are in need. emoticon

My Goals for 2012 In Reference to Health and Fitness Are:

Get these 30lbs off. emoticon

Remain Consistent in my Workouts! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


Sleep 8 hours per night! emoticon

Eat Plenty of Fruits and Veggies. Try new Foods for Variety. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


That's it in a nutshell. Like I mentioned before I do have other goals in my personal life so I’m racing towards meeting them all. I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO GIVES ME THE STRENGTH!

Love you Much!

Here’s to a GREAT February for US ALL!


Holla@Jesus!!! Our Way Maker!!!

    It has been a busy month for me too. The fast ended Sunday but I did do a fast til lunch today. I have been dragging lately been did a cardio this morning & I went on to do lower body work. I have seen success last month but since I kinda took my sessions down to 30mins or less cause my energy level. Now I can go back to my 1 hour 90mins workout session. WOOHOO!!

God bless & enjoy everyday Deb!

Unto Us God Sent His Son

And For Us The Victory Has Been Won

Our Lives Set Free From Sin

He Made It Possible To Begin Again

We Honor His Gift Every Day

In A Manger For Peace He Lay

To Fulfill The Passion of His Heart

His Bond To Us Will Never Part

He Did It All For Each of Us

That’s Why I Sing “MERRY CHRISTMAS!”

Deborah Edwards 12/20/11

So Lift Your Voices With Me And Shout The Victory! He Lives So We ARE FREE!
I Love You And Pray You ALL Will Have The BEST CHRISTMAS EVER! JESUS is the BEST Gift EVER and When You Have HIM YOU ARE TRULY HAPPY! Love You So Much! Work Out! Walking is Good! emoticon emoticon emoticon
