S-P-A-R-K-

Sunday, June 12, 2011

Good Evening,

About 1 year ago I was inspired by my friend, Jean who shared an acrostic with her Spark Buddies, which in turn got me to try one.

I used the acrostic S-P-A-R-K! You are likely asking yourself, why S-P-A-R-K?

After spending almost 1 year as a Spark Member I've learned so much, last year I shared what it meant to be a member of 2 weeks...WOW, a lot has happened since then, all good!

I'm thankful for SparkPeople and for all my SparkBuddies I've met. I have learned a lot about this special group of people. This is what has brought me to sharing an acrostic about my Spark Buddies...

S-special
P-persistent
A-accepting
R-ready
K-kind

Special: I have discovered that my Spark Buddies are a special people who are there for you. They care and are always ready to support.

Persistent: The SparkPeople here are a resilient people who are persistent, they keep on keeping on, and they are persistent and work at reaching their goals. SparkPeople share some Spark around to the places they go.

Accepting: My SparkBuddies are so accepting, they accept me and others for who they are and not for whom they would like the person to become.

Ready: SparkBuddies are always ready with an encouraging word & always ready to share a smile, to share some Spark around...

Kind: In the year I've been a member I have experienced the kindness of my SparkBuddies; they always have a kind word, a word that will build up rather than tear down.

Yes this past year I've discovered my SparkBuddies to be "Special, Persistent, Accepting, Ready and Kind".

In closing I hope this simple acrostic on what a Spark Friend means to me has encouraged and blessed you. Have a great rest of the weekend. Keep on Keeping On. Share some Spark around, be a blessing to someone today...

Love and Hugs,
You’re Spark Buddy,
Judith

My Day...

Thursday, June 09, 2011

Dropping by to say hi, hope everyone had a great day, mine was busy but awesome, met a friend for lunch, then did a lot of gardening, my friend's husband dug out a big area in my yard so my son can come and finish the job, I'm getting my rock garden dug out to get ready for a new deck area where it can be used as a play area for my grandkids...Things are looking good, my shrubbery and flowers are so lovely, my hanging baskets are taking shape...so it was a productive day for this gal... emoticon emoticon

We Need You, Lord....

Monday, June 06, 2011

We Need You, Lord

We need you, Lord.
Like lost wanderers in a burning, empty desert
thirst for cool, clean water,
we long for you to quench us.
In a world gone progressively mad,
with chaos all around us,
we seek refuge in the order and purpose of your law.
With evil sneaking, leaking everywhere,
spreading heavy darkness,
creating feelings of emptiness,
we hunger for your goodness and light.
Turn us around, Lord, we pray;
retrieve your sheep who have gone astray.
Draw us to the satisfaction
of your purity and righteousness.
Cleanse us, and make us more like you,
role models, examples, beacons,
for others who are searching for meaning for their lives.
Come, Lord Jesus.
We need you, Lord.

Matthew 5:16
Proverbs 4:18

By Joanna Fuchs

This Christian poem idealizes the Christian life, one that is impossible for a worldly sinner to attain, but one to which Christians must aspire.

Saturday...

Saturday, June 04, 2011

Looking forward to my day. I have all my laundry and most housework done so can really enjoy the warm sunny day free from a lot of household tasks, I plan to go outside and enjoy the lovely day and do some gardening and watering my plants.

Later I have my grandkids coming, what a joy it is to have them here, they are 2 and almost 5, full of energy and keep grandma hopping :)

I will slip over to the store and buy some fresh fruit and something for a special snack for them, Nyla loves popcorn with her favorite Veggie-Tail video... Her favorite story is Esther...She soaks it all in...It's fun to watch it with her. Logan loves me to read and sing to him and loves building blocks and playing with his activity table.

So there you have it, my Saturday's activities all mapped out for this gal. I think I'm having an awesome day. God's Blessings on your day and weekend...
