    Oh, from the mouths of babes. It reminds me of when my son was 12 and told his father he was going through poverty. His father said "No you are going through puberty. I am going through poverty."

Off Course?

Thursday, January 20, 2011


January 20, 2011
Read Psalm 16

You make known for me the path of life- Psalm 16:11

Ever taken a wrong turn? Of course, right? But if you're a marathoner, taking a wrong turn means you're off course. And that's exactly what happened to a Japanese marathoner last week. After a grueling 25 miles and leading with less than 200 meters from the finish, somehow he lost sight of the course. He turned right and those behind him went straight. It was tough to watch.

Now, many would see that story and expect a "gotta finish strong" theme. Or maybe since he righted his wrong and got back in the race, a "never quit" story would have sufficed. I admit, both came to mind. But actually, what grabbed my attention even more were those that were running right behind him. When he changed directions, they never doubted or veered. Even though he was ahead of them, it wasn't him they followed.

From jobs, school and health, despite where the world tries to lead us, may we follow theirs in the long races we run.

Yep that is right I turned 52 today!

I began my Spark Journey in earnest 2 years ago. In 2009 I lost 100 pounds. 2010 I managed to keep the bulk of it off during a very stressful year.

I am here to finish the job this year.

I have learned so much about myself along the way. I am worth it! I can succeed!

I don't have to be perfect! I just need to keep working at my goals.

I am not a failure. I am under construction. Each day is an opportunity to make right choices.

I am strong. I will do this! I will make this happen!

Don't Quit
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Christ's Nativity

Christ's Nativity a Christmas poem by Henry Vaughan

Make it Snow !

Awake, glad heart! get up and sing!
It is the birth-day of thy King.
Awake! awake!
The Sun doth shake
Light from his locks, and all the way
Breathing perfumes, doth spice the day.

Awake, awake! hark how th' wood rings;
Winds whisper, and the busy springs
A concert make;
Awake! awake!
Man is their high-priest, and should rise
To offer up the sacrifice.

I would I were some bird, or star,
Flutt'ring in woods, or lifted far
Above this inn
And road of sin!
Then either star or bird should be
Shining or singing still to thee.

I would I had in my best part
Fit rooms for thee! or that my heart
Were so clean as
Thy manger was!
But I am all filth, and obscene;
Yet, if thou wilt, thou canst make clean.

Sweet Jesu! will then. Let no more
This leper haunt and soil thy door!
Cure him, ease him,
O release him!
And let once more, by mystic birth,
The Lord of life be born in earth..
