June 10, 2009-Good news

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

I had a specific reason for doing a fast today, and asked several friends
to join in. I am thankful some were able to do so..it was a huge sign
of friendship and support.
However, the good news with this is that I am back on track and now
do not feel out of control with eating. Which I most definitely was.
I may very well fast again tomorrow. Then go back to the UP DAY-DOWN
DAY. I have just let everything going on influence my moods and emotions
and God has given me back control, by making this a success, so I am going
to take it and run(in my case walk gently)..........We are going looking for
a new pair of shoes for me, since these are worn out. David says it is an
investment.....
Ya'll have a great week....thanks for hanging in there with me...

Darlene

    WooHoo!!! You go girl!
I'm glad you're able to fast. Me? never! Gotta have food. Oh and congrats on the fitness minutes. I have not been able to log my fitness mins for along time now. This old PC is just that. OLD! Certain things I just can't do on it. Some day I am gonna break down and buy me a new one. It doesn't help that I am still on dial up. Oh well.

Spring to Summer

Tuesday, June 02, 2009

It has jumped from early spring here, to midsummer all in one
day.
Nothing much going on except I am once again counting the water,
fruits and veggies, and so forth. Back on the wagon.

Hello

Saturday, May 09, 2009

Just wanted to thank everyone for all the lovely messages
for my birthday. It blessed me ..........

I have much to be thankful for. The tornadoes that tore through
Illinois yesterday went over my hometown and thankfully, both
my children are fine, altho both had trees uprooted at their homes.
It could have been much worse. One school in the area was severely
damaged, but again, no one was injured. Thank God.

Update

Thursday, May 07, 2009

I don't have any real updates. So far as I know the only correction
is that Chris was at the gym, not at work, when this terrible attack
was carried out. The tv stations reported he was at work erroneously.

The other thing is, I uploaded two pictures, one of the whole family
and the other of Sheri and the boys. If you would like to see them,
they are in my Spark pictures.

Obviously, in our financial condition, we are not going to be able
to go home for the funerals, which saddens me.
As I get any updates, I will post. Hopefully, the major case squad will
get the crazy who did this soon.

Thank you for all of your support and prayers. I appreciate it more
than anyone could ever know.....
Blessings,
Darlene

    Oh! Darlene, I can't stop crying just looking at that lovely family, what a waste of life. Such a beautiful wife and boys, how could anybody bring themselves to do such a thing. I was thinking about this last night and trying to make some sense in it all, but as much as I try I cannot for the life of me see why this had to happen.

I am at a loss for words right now, all I can see is a family torn apart. I pray Chris can get through this, maybe the prayers will help, I hope so.

Thank you for keeping us updated.

    I rad about this online after seeing your blog yesterday - such a tragedy... It seems like it would drive a person mad with grief. I don't really know how a person could stay sane after something like this - except through prayer ad grace.

I am just broken-hearted

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

Friends,
I have just received the most devastating news, that my Pastors' back home
whose son is head of security for Joyce Meyer Ministries, has just lost his
wife and two little boys. They were murdered in
their home while he was at work.

This family and the church family are just devastated as am I. Please lift the
family in prayer. Pastors' wife is in the hospital, having had surgery yesterday,
which just compounds this ......
Blessings,
Darlene

    How sad and tragic.

I am praying for this man and his entire family and friends.....

May God give that peace that surpasses all our human understanding... and may God be Glorified through this. What the Enemy meant for bad... may God use to bring others to him.

    Darlene, I can't imagine something like that happening! How painful for the family. I will definitely pray for them. We don't know the reason but we know our God is in control.
A pastor friend of mine had a similar thing happen to him 18 years ago. While he was preparing his sermon at the church a man with a Samaria sword came and murdered his wife and two neighbors who came to help. We never know when God will call us home but it's so painful for those left behind. God help them right now. I pray for God's mercy on them. I'm thankful that whatever happens God is still in control and He sees our heartaches.

    How terrible! Here on earth, we'll always have the whys. One of my son's friends, who was only 21, died a few weeks ago of a heart atttack, and it was so devastating. I know the "Why now, Why him?" just keeps going on & on. I guess this side of Heaven, we won't know the answers, but just gotta hold onto & 'walk by faith, not by sight" I certainly have & will continue to pray for this family and all involved that the God of All Comfort would fill everyone with His peace & hope for the future.
