The last few days have been very hectic, but I am getting through it. I finished spring cleaning the bedroom yesterday and took today to do a good thorough cleaning of the living room and foyer.
Tomorrow I go for the biopsy results from my procedure I had on the 20th of March. I am dreading it like anyone else would, but I know God will be with me.
I have to say the last week has been really challenging for me with food. I have been drifting between here and my daughter's house, sooo... I am on a scavenger's diet LOL. I really need to go to the grocery. Tonight is going to be rough just finding something to eat. I'm sure I will find something. But for sure I am going to have to go to the grocery tomorrow after my appointment.
Friday I plan to start spring cleaning the kitchen. That will leave only one more bedroom to clean and then the big project begins..... uggh.. the basement! ( )

I have no idea how, but I lost 3lbs last week. That brings my total weight loss to 29lbs.
I have to go back now and re-edit my goals for March. I accomplished some, others not so much. Considering everything that is going on in my life right now (believe me, I could write a book), I don't think I've done that bad.
I have been trying to come up with new goals for April. Part of that will be to try to finish my spring cleaning... but honestly, I think with what I have coming up this month, I just need to try to get through it the best I can. So, my ultimate goal will be to concentrate on tracking all my food and water intake. I am not so much worried about exercise, I believe with what I have ahead of me, I will get plenty of that. Emotionally, I am spent. I have never been this close to the edge before in my life. When I look back of what I have been through in the last 2 years, its probably a miracle that I am still here.
I would ask for your continued prayers for me...this is still a long way from over and I need all the strength I can get as well as God's guidance and protection. Thanks to everyone in advance for your prayers ..and for just listening to me ramble.

I would like to start this blog by thanking everyone here who prayed for me and have supported me over the last few months.
As some of you know I had a meeting with my stbx yesterday... all I can say is it was grueling. Funny word, grueling. Its not one of those words that you use often, but it fits this circumstance perfectly!
There was no meeting of the minds yesterday. I am not shocked or surprised, I expected that honestly. But, somewhere in the back of my mind I had hoped against hope that he would listen to reason. So.. here we are back to square one with no agreement in sight. I felt as if I had been put through a wringer. I suppose, he had to have felt the same way?
So, here I am.. trying to recuperate and get ready for round 2. Many, many thanks to those who lifted me up yesterday. I appreciate each one of you. I hope you have a beautiful Easter weekend.

As I sat sipping my coffee Sunday morning I was listening to a message by Charles Stanley. The message was all about gaining your own personal acceptance, your self-worth, and overcoming rejection. I was so moved to know that we belong to God (Romans 8:16). We are worthy (John 3:16) and through Christ, we can do anything (Phillipians 4:13)
I often catch myself wondering what heaven must really be like..I don't think we can even fathom the magnifincence that awaits for us there. I am reminded of that hymn......"Oh won't it be wonderful, wonderful there..." or my father's favorite: "What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see... when I look upon His face, the one who saved me by His grace. When He takes me by the hand and leads me through the promised land. What a day, a glorious day that will be!"
I am so thankful this morning that I belong to God, that He found ME worthy, and that through Him, I can do all things. Praise His name forever!
*I posted this first as a reply to a devotional posted on the "Winners With God" team forum. I just wanted to share it here also. I hope everyone has a blessed day today!
