1 month to change :(

Wednesday, June 06, 2007

I went for my diabetes check up and my doctor told me that I have to get my blood sugars down or I will have to go on insulin. There is no more chances, this is it.
I know I've said this before and for awhile I was doing good, in fact my A1c was down to 7.8 but then it went up to 9.3 and then down to 8.3 but in the past two months it shot up to 10.1 which is very bad.
The doctor thinks it might be because I've been slacking in my medication which is true. I always forget to take my morning meds so what we agreed is for me to take my meds at night and hopefully this will help. For me I know it will work, also I've decided to really be true/strict with my food choices because I know also is a big factor.
So for this past few days I have attended Curves (3 days) and walked one day but I will get another walk in this evening. I also am going to continue going to Curves early as that is my best time to move.
As for other things, I will doing orientation classes on the 26-28 for my new job so I am excited about that. So for now I'll just work on me a little bit.
That's it for updates, ya'll have a blessed week spark friends :)

    Im sure Riley is proud of his Mom! You can do this, girl! Determination is the key and youve got it! Look at all youve already handled so far in this lifetime of yours. No quick fixes will do; its a l-o-n-g walk that we are taking. Can you hear your cheering section off in the distance?!

Wow! In one day GOD answered my prayers.
I went for an interview for a different job, and everything I wanted and prayer about was given. I have the work shift I need the pay rate is exactly what I wanted, and the words I wanted to hear were said. It was a miracle, and I praise GOD for answering me. THANK YOU THANK YOU Heavenly Father :)

Where is my place? :(

Thursday, May 17, 2007

It's been a long month since April and I've just recently started working. The thing is, that I am not happy :( and my emotions are in such turmoil because of another big financial mistake I've done. I am trying to help my family get through it because it was my fault but it's the daily work place that frightens me.
I am doing on-call so it's only a 4 day a-week job but the thing is that I am changing job site weekly 2x a week. I am not sure of myself of my abilities, I am so scared of making a mistake.
I did put in applications at place where I was employed about 2 years ago but I still haven't gotten a call back yet, I guess I am just impatient too.
I just don't know where I am supposed to be :( I mean I thought about being the stay at home mom too but I know that I was going into depression and I didn't want that. I also know that while I was home I was just starting to get my health back in order too, so it's like should I return home to care for my health, physically and mentally, or even emotionally. I am so confused, I just wish GOD would tell what to do.
Yet this finacial bind is all my fault and though my family forgives I can not and that guilt also weighs me down. I have been praying for help and for guidance but I feel so lost.
If anyone reads this please pray for us and me for guidance.
GODs blessings to you all

    Hugs to you JoeAnne.
I know how it feels to be in the financial bind and feel like it's your fault. I will keep you in my prayers. Have patience - God will answer you when you least expect it. Make sure you are giving your problem up to God so he can take care of it for you. It is such a hard thing to do and it can make you feel so out of control. I just went thru this with my house and it is good right now. It is VERY tight, but things are looking ok and we just have to be very careful. Also, try to set your mind to hearing what God's answer is - I know eventhough I've said I've given something up to him, I will still overthink all of the different scenarios of what if, what should, etc. He will answer you. You said your family has forgiven you, so you need to forgive yourself. Look at your mistake as a learning experience. We already beat ourselves up over so many things and it's not healthy and doesn't help with depression.

It is good that you have gone out to work. You need to be around others and sometimes it makes you feel better when you are contributing to both the household and at work. Have confidence in yourself. You were hired because of your abilities, so you can do it.

I will keep you in my prayers.
Blessings to you and your family,

Being 42

Saturday, April 21, 2007

So my Birthday has passed and I am now 42. It feels so good when friends tell me that I'm still just a baby :) and it's because they are in their 50s and 60s. I just love them for that. It makes me feel like I still got time to do what I must, and that is to lose weight, finish school, watch my grandson grow up, and give as much love as I can to my family.
I feels such a refreshing of my soul and I glad that GOD listened to prayers. I needed it so badly.
Well I am looking forward to tomorrows Church services as I missed last Sunday.
We are finally moved back to our house, but we still have stuff to unpack, I'm just glad it's no rush to do it.
Thats it for updates. Have a blessed weekend Spark friends

Such turmoil :(

Tuesday, April 17, 2007

GOD, I need you more now than ever.....Please
Last week my nephew tried to commit suicide, and he is now at a behaviorial health center. One of my Aunts who had been sick has passed away, ( which is a blessing for her as she was very tired) and I know the family is in such grief. Also my oldest son is back in jail, but he knows it's something he had to face and he's ok with it, but for me it hurts.
Also we have bittersweet news/event and that is our house is finished being renovated and we are in the process of moving back in. It is sad, because my baby boy is not home with us, (he resides in a more beautiful place called Heaven) and it was because of him that this whole process of the renovation was done.
I feel like my soul is tired, and weary. I need an uplifting of GODs grace. Please Spark friends keep us in prayer. Thank you
