He Told Me To Love You
But Why Should I?
Do I Care That Youíre My Neighbor
Or This Is The Desire of My Savior?
Can I Just Hate You And Get Away With It?
Theyíre Only Words Not A Fist Hit.
Do I Have To Love Those Who Offend?
Is It Really An Ungodly Sin?
How Can I Follow Peace
With Another?
Really? Are They My Sister And Brother?
But What If They Say Things
That Arenít True?
Do I Still Love Them?
Just Like I Love You?
Sometimes This Life Is Hard
Walking In Love.
I Wonder What All Heaven Thinks
As They Peer From Above?
Iíve Committed My Life To
Jesus My Savior!
Why Do I Have To Love My Unknown Neighbor?
Can I Just Hate Them? Trash Them Right Back?
I Shouldnít Have To Put Up With Their Verbal Attack!
But..You Did Tell Me To Love Others As I Love MyselfÖ
Father This Is HardÖI Need Divine Help!
How Can I Say I Want To Make Heaven My Home?
When Because Of Peopleís Offense I Want To Continually Moan.
Itís Not Worth Just Barely Getting InÖ
I Canít Live In This Devil Founded Sin!
This Life I Must Live Full Of Peace For OthersÖ
Treat Them As I Would Treat My Own Sister Or Brother.
Iíve Been Given A Seed Called Love
I Donít Want My Father Grieved From Above.
Itís Time To Remember All That Jesus Said
Useless Words Fall On The Ground Dead.
I Will Not Play A Game Of Hatred And Strife.
The True Enemy Will Never Have Life.
Heís Doomed For All Of Eternity.
I Must Love If My Jesus I Want To See!
Forgive Me Father For Forgetting Who I Am.
I Can Love My Neighbor!
Yes Oh Yes I Can!

Don't Allow The Enemy To Cause You To Lose Focus As A Child Of God. His Assignment For Us Is Still The Same...WALK IN LOVE AT ALL TIMES. I Love You And Pray For God's Peace Be Upon ALL The People Of This United States Of America. We Won't Play The Enemy's Game.
Love YOU!!!

    Beautiful and Amen!!!! God has spoken several things to heart these past few days. My heart has been moved for those who have allowed themselves to be in despair when hope abounds.

Your poetic style reminded me of a friend I had that was dear to me. She is now with our LORD. It also is stirring my heart to go back to my poetry and writing. Thank you for being such an encouragement.

Under the Direction of The Holy Spirit I Send This Prayer Up:

Dear Father In The Name Of Jesus, First I Give Thanks To You For These United States Of America! I Give Thanks For Leaders And ALL Who Are In Authority So That We May Lead A Quiet And Peaceful Life In All Godliness And Dignity In THIS Life.
I Pray For President Obama And Vice President Joe Biden That You Will Give Them A Spirit Of Wisdom And Revelation In The Knowledge Of YOU. May The Eyes Of Their Understanding Be Filled With LIGHT So They May KNOW What Is The Hope Of Your Calling And What The Riches Of The Glory Of The Inheritance In The Saints And What Is The Exceeding Greatness Of Your Power Because They Believe. May They Know And Understand That This Is More Than Being Put Into Power By Man For ALL Power Is Of God. May They Fully Understand The Plans And Purposes You Have For Them These Next Four Years. May Their Ears Be Open To HEAR The Voice Of The Spirit So That Godís Predestined Plans For The United States Of America Be Accomplished For We ARE One Nation Under GOD. Thy Will Be Done On Earth As It IS In Heaven! Oh Father May Your Anointing To Lead This Nation Increase In Their Lives As The Responsibility Grows Greater. May They Keep Their Trust In You And Not Man. May They Realize That Itís BETTER To Trust In God Than In Man. May They Increase In Your Knowledge By Seeking Your Word. Thank YOU Father That The Blood Of Jesus Covers Their Families. You Have Beset Them Before And Behind Above And Beneath And All Around. May All Of Us In These United States Of America Unite To Give Glory To You For Our Blessed Lives Here. For We ARE Truly Blessed. You Have Given Us The BEST Nation To Live In And I Thank YOU! May All Who Are Discouraged Be Encouraged By Your Holy Spirit. Jesus Is Lord Over The United States Of America!

May God's Peace Always Be With Your Hearts For HE Is OUR Joy!

A Little Over Three More Days Until November. MY FAVORITE MONTH!!! Iím PartialÖMy Birthday Month! Comes On Thanksgiving This Year. So What Will I Do? The Same As Any Other Day. Might Make Me An Individual Dessert Because Iím TOO CLOSE To That Goal Weight And Iím Not About To Sabotage Myself Again.

How Has Your October Been? Last Time I Reported On The Great Progress Iím Making And It Is Still GREAT Progress! Sometimes I Think Iím Dreaming! WAKE UP DEBORAH!!! But Iím Not AsleepÖThis IS Real! Itís Really HappeningÖIím Getting Healthy And LOSING Lifetime Weight!!!!

Ok. Iím A Little Dramatic. But ManÖThis Has Been A Long Time Coming. Put On A Skirt Earlier And Itís SO Loose. Then I Put On Another Smaller Skirt And Itís Perfect. I Cheesed All Whilr I Enjoyed A ďHoly Ghost MeetingĒ. Thanking God For His Goodness And His Very PRESENT Help! Iím Truly Thankful.

AndÖALL Of My SparkFriends Who Keep Me On My Toes. I Like That Accountability. Yes I Do! LOVE YOU ALL TOO!!! I Really Do! Am I In HEAVEN???

Iíve Been So Pumped On My Working Out And Today I Had To Pull Back A Little Because I Donít Rest Enough. StillÖIím Happy To Be ADDICTED To Fitness. Pushing Through On Days I Donít FEEL It Makes Me SMILE Afterwards. This Is Such A Rewarding Life!!!

Iím Eating Very Healthy Although I Wanted Some Snickers(Fun Size) And I Got Some. I Controlled Myself! I Was Tripping When I Tried To Find The Correct Calorie Count For The Fun Size And I Found Like Three Different Amounts Before I Struck Gold.

Itís Cold In TexasÖBut Iím Not Going To Let That Keep Me From Walking Outside. My Five Year Old Niece Is My Walking Partner And Iím Always Telling HER To ďSpeed Up! Youíre Walking Too Slow!Ē She Is Too Funny. Now She Is In LOVE With Sugar. Hopefully Iíll Rub Off On Her. She Doesnít Know About The Snickers!

Well I Was Checking In And Iíll Hopefully Get Back On The First To Report More Weight Loss And Other Triumphs! I Tell You I Can Taste VICTORY!!!

Much Love And Many Blessings Upon You All! My SECRET Is JESUS!!!

Happy Monday October 15, 2012 All Of My Sparkers!!!

First Announcement: I have lost 8 pounds from September till today. My weight today is 160!!! Thatís 73 pounds down from my starting weight in 2007 of 233!!! emoticon

So this is certainly a happy Monday for me. Iím a little nervous seeing my 1rst goal weight so close, 145 pounds means I only have 15 pounds to lose. Plus the inches are coming off too!!! I reached in my closet to put on a pair of jeans to walk in and noticed that they were not too long. They fit loosely and I kept wondering which pair of jeans they were. I have this pair of flair jeans that I havenít been able to wear that was given to me with some other clothing about three years ago and I would use them to watch my progress. It has been a while since I tried them on but once I returned from my walk, I pulled them off to see the tag and to my JOY I can wear them!!! Not only thatÖthey are BAGGY!!! Can you spell PROGRESS?! emoticon emoticon

October is going GREAT for me no matter if I didnít get the 8lbs off in September they are off now. Iím growing in the Word and the things of God which is on my goals for 2012. I see myself reaching all of my goals and that makes me extremely happy.

Iím going strong on my workouts and found a video by Tiffany Rothe on YouTube that Iím truly in love with. She has an entire channel but I havenít looked at it yet but I have worked out on 2 of her other videos. The one I like the most is a core dance workout. The other two are Intense and More Intense. The intense is cardio dancing with emphasis on the core. The more intense is Boxer Babes and my, my I havenít done Taebo since I found her! I do believe she has Taebo background. Iíve also not did a Zumba workout either. Thatís since a week ago on Sunday. Anything that can take me away from Zumba is a workout I like. Iím also still performing my on cardio dance workouts with the Tiffany videos and I workout with Coach Nicole for my strength training. I really like the band workouts. Thereís one she leads that works your body all over from a chair. I like doing that on Saturdays and itís a 20 minute workout. Tiffany Rothe 10 min Body Sculpting Workout.

Yes itís been too long since I posted a blog. I had a roll going in September. But many of you we interact often. I appreciate you all and thank GOD for every one of you.
Have a wonderful 2nd half of October. WE are making progress!!!

Many Blessings And Much Love

    It's fun to try new videos, etc for workouts so they don't get boring. Glad you've found some good ones. Also glad that you're growing in Christ. That's the best! I've been doing some growing too and I'm so thankful for it. Even though I came to faith as a child, there's always more room to be more like our beautiful Savior!
