Remembering 9-11

Thursday, September 11, 2008

I know where I was when I saw the towers fall. I remember hearing others say why? Why would God let this happen? My thoughts are, he did it for a purpose, that these people did not die in vain and to this day I still believe it. It is Gods way of telling the world that the U.S. is Gods country and that we can with stand what comes and is yet to come. Also it is for other countries to show their compassion and help in whatever way they can. This includes the things that have happened during the hurricanes, fires, and tsunamis.
The only thing is that in my own tragic events that I still question GOD. My pain is still fresh and I can't find peace. I know I need to trust Him and hold on to hope that things will get better. Everyday I wake up and I see clouds and I wonder, is this day GOD will call us all home? Oh how I wish that time would come. "Mirantha"

    Yes, I know exactly what you mean. Life is not what we imagined and it is harder because our sons were taken from us. The one to whom we prayed to take care of them did yet not in the way we'd prayed! It's too hard to see from His perspective and it just plain hurts! Oh that noone would ever feel this pain again, the pain that the Father knows too because His Son was also taken in death.

My house is fully renovated and we have sinced moved back home. I thank God for the blessing He has provided forme and my family.
My prayer now is to get a new computer because this one is on it's last bytes. It works for now and I am grateful for at least that.
As for my weight, well I kinda slipped with that and have gained about 6-8 pounds. I've had so much stressful events and the worst being that my only brother passed away, but I know he is resides in heaven with the rest of my family. If it was for GODs mercy I probably be insane right now but I know I am needed much.
Well I hope to get things back on track this week especially with the exercise and healthier eating which I know takes planning. So off I go to a healthier me. Blessing to you all emoticon

The Fire :(

Saturday, April 05, 2008

It's been a little over a month now since my house burned. Some people ask how can I live with all this, where does my courage come from? Yes, there have been tragic events that have happened to us but we are surviving. Just like what GOD said to me in a dream "My grace is sufficient". So I trust in my Lord and that things are for his greater glory and we will make it through.
I miss my son, it's been 2 years now since he journeyed to Heaven and I want even more to get there soon. Yet my heart is also divided because I want to stay to see my grandson Darius grow up. "RILEY I love you baby boi, always&forever and I will see you again."
As of January I got my A1c down to 6.8 and I was so relieved. But since the fire I think it has gone up a little. I will find out how it is when I do my labs in a couple of weeks.
As for the weightloss part I also have not done well, I actually gained 2 pounds. BUT I've just started back to walking and doing strength training so hopefully in a couple weeks I'll have some good reports.
Have a blessed week spark friends :)

    Sometimes its hard when tragedy hits our life, but we have to remember that its all in Gods hands and somethings we can't do any thing about it. But there are people that are still counting on us here and now. God Bless

What I need to do.....

Saturday, December 15, 2007

So I've not been followig through and although things are not getting worse I know I need to change...........I need to do some type of exercise, eat a healthier lunch, and read GODs word. To give myself motivation I've finally colored my hair, to cover the gray and I am also getting a manicure done. Starting tonight I will read 2 chapters of Bible and be more prayful of my family and friends.
To my friends who posted to me thank you, thank you :)

    Every day I ask God for guidance and to lead me into paths that will help me represent Him in greater and greater ways. You have a very clear plan and I think that you are moving towards your goal.
With God's help we can do all things.
All the best.

    Good for you! Im sure you feel better with those nice things youve done for yourself! Often the inside accompanies the care we give the outside! Now recognizing a need for change IS part of the challenge and leads us to persisting in making the changes that we need to make. I know that my determination is helping me along my SparkJourney! It takes tons of effort and hard work to do what needs to be done and to make healthy choices. Im proud of you, girl, for recognizing what you need to do, now keep doing it every day!

Commitments, and stuff

Monday, November 19, 2007

Well I did it, I exercised for 35 minutes, most of it was walking. I feel good about just going and not letting anything get in my way. I guess I need to just plan and just do.
Thank you for the responses :) I know that my gambling is not an addiction but a release from stress, and it happens maybe once a month. It's not like I spend all our money but it's just the guilt feelings I have afterward. Your right Karen, I should plan these times also, and not see it as a must/should not thing. So, for New Years eve I plan to go but with a spending limit. Well thats it for updates. I will survive....... :)
