It's my Sparkaversary!!!

Thursday, January 02, 2014

I just realized that today is my 4th Sparkaversary! Wow!! Time does fly! It seems like just yesterday that I found Sparks people. Yet, in other ways, its hard to remember life before sparks! Joining sparks was a very good thing for me. I didn't have that much weight to lose, but what I really liked was the tracking. I felt more in control when I could see exactly what I was eating and how many calories I consumed. My eating habits changed. I began reading the labels and choosing fresh over processed. I could use a set meal plan or do my own. I could add my own recipes and calculate the nutrients. There were exercises available right on my computer that I could do and then with a click of a button, they were tracked. I was hooked! . . . . and I'm still hooked! I probably spend most of my computer time on sparks pages! Another bonus? I have made many new cyber friends!! They encourage me and support me; they challenge me! I plan on being a sparks member for many years to come! Thank you Spark people!

P.S. Did I mention that I have toned up my body and lost a few pounds too?

The Easter Song

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Hear the bells ringing, they're singingThat You can be born againHere the bells ringing, they're singingChrist is risen from the dead
The angel up on the tombstoneSaid, “He has risen, just as He saidQuickly now, go tell His disciplesThat Jesus Christ is no longer dead”
Joy to the worldHe has risen, HallelujahHe's risen, HallelujahHe's risen, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hear the bells ringing, they're singingThat You can be healed right nowHear the bells ringing, they're singingChrist, He will reveal it now
The angels, they all surround usAnd they are ministering Jesus's powerQuickly now, reach out and receive itFor this could be your glorious hour
Joy to the worldHe has risen, HallelujahHe's risen, HallelujahHe's risen, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
The angel up on the tombstoneSaid, “He has risen, just as He saidQuickly now, go tell His disciplesThat Jesus Christ is no longer dead”
Joy to the worldHe has risen, HallelujahHe's risen, HallelujahHe's risen, HallelujahHallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

JESUS PAID IT ALL

Friday, March 29, 2013

JESUS PAID IT ALL


I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.” Refrain:
Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim;
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.
And now complete in Him,
My robe, His righteousness,
Close sheltered ’neath His side,
I am divinely blest.
Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow’r, and Thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone.
When from my dying bed
My ransomed soul shall rise,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
Shall rend the vaulted skies.
And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
I’ll lay my trophies down,
All down at Jesus’ feet.

By Elvina M. Hall

Spring like today, and a thank you

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Good Morning!

It's shaping up to be a beautiful day here . . . shhhh I think we might get some sunshine and som e warmer temperatures!

Thank you to all who stopped by my blog yesterday and left me comforting and encouraging words. What a blessing to have spark friends like you! The day went well, one step forward. I know change takes time and it isn't going to occur overnight. We have armed ourselves with some great recommended resources, but the best resource is knowing that God is on our side!

Hubby returns to work today; I always get spoiled when he is home for a long period of time. Oh well . . . Not much on the agenda today. I should be able to get some task down around the hone . . . . . And I just might have to go out and enjoy a bit of the sunny (shhhhhh!) day!

Hope you have a terrific day!

. . . . And this too shall pass.

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Good Morning!
Yesterday was a trial. DS#4 decided to raise up his rebellious head and do his own thing. It didn't work out too well for him. There are consequences for actions. Today, we will continue to deal with the those consequences. Life us up and down; full of hills and valleys. When we go through the trials, we don't walk alone, God is with us. We can learn from our mistakes; we can go stronger from them. Even though it is not me who is choosing to rebel, God is using the situation to grow me in my faith and help me to react and live in a manner that glorifies Him. So, as we ride the rapids with our children, we keep our eyes on the horizon, because we know we can make it through to the calm waters and have smooth sailing!

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

    Depending on how old DS#4 is and what the consequences are should guide you as a parent on how much to help. I do not giving what is sometimes termed "tough love" but I know that it can be a great teacher. You are certainly spot on in letting Him guide you.
Blessings and prayers.

    Being a mother takes you on paths sometimes that are difficult but to have a heavenly father that sees us through those times is wonderful. We may not always have the strength to face those challenges but those are the times that he carries us. God Bless you!
