Grammy's new little love

Sunday, January 19, 2014

I have a new granddaughter born yesterday afternoon. She is just a little one, 5 pounds and 1 ounce. She is perfect and so very cute. I looked at her little face yesterday for the first time and now it's permanently pasted in my memory photos. A little tiny nose, a cap of black hair, long little fingers, sweet baby mouth. You always wonder if there's more love for a new baby, but love just grows as we add more to our family. I'm going to be her nanny-grammy as she now makes child #6 in my daughter's family. I'm moving to live closer to her and the great thing about that is that my other daughter lives nearby with my other two grandchildren. This is one happy grammy.

    Oh, what wonderful news! I'm so glad that everything went well for your daughter and her daughter. I'm waiting for a grandchild, though it's been a while and doesn't look to be coming anywhere in the near future. I'm very happy for you and the move seems like it will be ideal for all of you. emoticon

    Congratulations on the birth of another grandbaby! I'm happy you will be moving closer and spending lots of time with your grandchildren. They grow up so fast and then they're so busy! The love you build with them when they are young, stays with them as they grow up.

Palm Sunday meditation

Sunday, March 24, 2013

This morning between a choir special of Hosannas and a worship song entitled We Will Overcome, I had to share a segue to connect them. Reflections of this week are sobering and difficult. I can't imagine His suffering, but I am thankful for Jesus and for His resurrection. Have a blessed holy week and that He loved me that much.
This is what I wrote to use today in worship.

That day in Jerusalem must have been somewhat like a modern day ticker-tape parade. So many people celebrating the LORD as he rode into town—not in a convertible but on a donkey, not with flying confetti and cheers but waving palm branches and shouts of Hosannas. Jesus was not fooled by this fickle crowd, not one little bit. He was there for a purpose. He knew what lay in store for Him that week and continued to teach His disciples. He tried to warn them concerning what was coming. They were clueless, but He had that covered too—He promised to send a Comforter, the Holy Spirit, to teach them and remind them of His words. He told them in spite of questions and troubles that come they should take heart. He said “I have overcome the world.”

Precious words of Jesus are recorded in John 17 as He prayed over his disciples for their unity and protection, but the good news for us today is found in verse 20.

20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,

His words are for us. He has overcome; and we too we will overcome . . . not by our strength, but by the blood of the Lamb.

    Our church service was canceled due to our big snow storm. I always enjoy our Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday services. I enjoy all the services but these are always so special. Thanks for sharing your service. May our Lord Bless You. ((Hugs))

Still here

Monday, March 18, 2013

I had a random thought this morning after I had closed up my SparkPage before work. I have gained a few pounds back which, of course, I had hoped not to do. BUT that has been my pattern all of my adult life. I know why it happens, and I know how to fix it. Every other time it followed reaching my weight goal. I was so ashamed of myself at the time, I wouldn't go back to the weight program I used to turn it back around. I don't feel that shame here. I am glad I am still in the "lost" category. I appreciate the teams and the challenges. Thanks for your help, Spark Friends.

    I am so glad you are here too. It seems like this whole challenge I have lost and gained the same 2 or 3 pounds. And that too has been my pattern for so long now. I do not feel shame - but lately the frustration has been huge - because my old pattern was to give up and just emjoy food and say what the heck. But I keep working and relying on the encouragement of my spark friends and spark team.

It really helps to know that I am not alone in this struggle

    I hear you, friend. November and December did me in - no, that's isn't the truth - I did myself in, but I am undoing the damage before it gets worse!

Let's hang in there together!

    Our bodies get comfortable at a weight and hates it when we go below the "comfortable weight." It will do a lot to make you get back there. It may take a couple of years at goal to talk your body into accepting this as the correct weight for you.

If losing weight were easy and if keeping it off was the norm, we would all be thin.

    Glad you're here too. This happens to everyone. We lose it, gain back one or two pounds, lose it again. It's really hard to stay at a certain set weight for the duration. I find maintenance is much harder than losing weight ever was. Hang in there. At least you have LOTS of support here at SP!!!

    There should be no shame. Its all numbers. Calories plus no work out equals extra pounds. Less calories and more work out equals less pounds.

We have weaknesses and we eat. There is no shame in over eating. Its OK. Stress. Temptation.

But it doesn't change a thing . Its just gettingover the stress and temptation to go back to the cold hard facts as stated above.

    Glad you are here! There is no reason for shame. We are all humans who have unique situations that sometimes get in the way of our successes.

I would be in sad shape if I did not have my Spark Friends to help me pull myself out of the funk's I get into when I gain. Thank you for being there to help support me, too!

Shining even brighter

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Another BIG WOW! This time I didn't get to Spark until I got home from spending the weekend with my granddaughters. So another surprise to see I was spotlighted on the 5% challenge. Thanks for all of the visits to my page. It's so nice to have so many friends stop by (and I didn't even have to clean the house!)

In the Spotlight

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Wow What a nice surprise! I was at my granddaughter's birthday swimming party this afternoon and now in the hotel with two sweet GDs having a girls' night. I thought I'd check out the free internet and what did I find? Lots of goodies and comments. Thanks for the day in the light. I feel honored. Go Daisies!

    What a fun day! My late husband and I rented a hotel room once a month and took the girls. Every 3 months, it as just the two of us. We weren't far from home, sometimes only 5 miles, but pizza, chips and a pool made for great family time.
