~I refuse to be Discouraged~ unknown
I refuse to be discouraged,
To be sad, or to cry;
I refuse to be downhearted,
and here's the reason why:
I have a God who's mighty,
Who's sovereign and supreme;
I have a God who loves me,
and I am on His team.
He is all-wise and powerful.
Jesus is His name;
Though everything is changeable,
My God remains the same.
My God knows all that's happening;
Beginning to the end;
His presence is my comfort;
He is my dearest Friend.
When sickness comes to weaken me,
To bring my head down low,
I call upon my mighty God;
Into His arms I go.
When circumstances threaten
to rob me of my peace;
He draws me close unto His breast,
Where all my strivings cease.
When my heart melts within me,
and weakness takes control;
He gathers me into His arms,
He soothes my heart and soul.
The great "I AM" is with me.
My life is in His hand;
The "Son of the Lord" is my hope,
It's in His strength I stand.
I refuse to be defeated,
My eyes are on my God;
He has promised to be with me,
as through this life I trod.
I'm looking past all my circumstances,
To Heaven's throne above;
My prayers have reached the heart of God
I'm resting in His love.
I give God thanks in everything.
My eyes are on His face;
The battle's His, the victory mine;
He'll help me win the race.
Happy Holiday weekend!! May your Sparkles Shime Bright for the Stars that you are!!!

When things get to much.... Listen to this
Know you are not alone.. This will pick up your spirits..
Gratitude is something of which none of us can give too much.
For on the smiles, the thanks we give, our little gestures of appreciation,
our neighbors build their philosophy of life.

Sometimes we all take things for granted & do our own thing. in some cases it is good ,others not so. Not being my old upbeat self.. I have had time to reflect. too much time. I miss not feeling well enough to keep up with all I did on SP. Missing the camaraderie & support. Pushing myself out of my comfort zone. Just feeling Good.
With Thanks giving so soon upon us.. For all of you not celebrating Thanksgiving..This is still for all of you too.
I am Thankful to each and every one of you.. for giving me support, encouragement, goodies, laughs, prayers, hugs, well wishes and your wonderful gifts that make you all so special. Sharing your inner thought & feelings..Good times and bad.. And reaching out to all who need comfort..
Thank You SP for bringing us all together and Happy Thanksgiving to You All & Yours.
I hope to be back in full swing soon.. Then Like a bad dream I will be back LOL
Got to keep my sense of humor..;)
I read these poems an quotes and they were very thought provoking. I wanted to share them with you.
Heart Hugs Always
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. ~Melody Beattie
Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. ~W.T. Purkiser
Iím Thankful for You
Thanksgiving is the appointed time
for focusing on the good in our lives.
In each of our days,
we can find small blessings,
but too often we overlook them,
choosing instead to spend our time
paying attention to problems.
We give our energy
to those who cause us trouble
instead of those who bring peace.
letís be on the lookout
for the bits of pleasure in each hour,
and appreciate the people who
bring love and light to everyone
who is blessed to know them.
You are one of those people.
Iím thankful for you.

On the news this morning they showed this website.
Weight loss mirror. You upload a current photo and mark off how much weigh you want to lose and it shows a projected photo of what you will look like.
I did and it was amazing when I hit 92 pounds off. Seems like a great visualization tool.
I wanted to share this.
Have a super day..
