Dancing the Pounds Away!!!

Thursday, May 01, 2014

Listening to the Doo Wops. Oh how I love the music and it is so much fun dancing to it. My hubby and I are dancing around and it is so much fun. Singing at the top of our lungs, laughing and remember when we were in high school together going to all the sock hops! Aren't memories great!! Now we are making new ones even better!!!

Loving Hurts

Monday, February 03, 2014

Today I am 70 years old. It is not only my birthday it is the anniversary of my beloved Dad's death. Even though it has been almost fifty years it has not diminished the love I have for him. Time does ease the pain of loss but it never really goes away. I think of our dear Lord loving us so much as to die for us and yet we let Him down again and again. His love is without measure, how bless are we for that. I pray as I grow older I grow wiser in my love for Him keeping Him forever close to my heart. May God be forever praise!

    Pat, nicely said. I like you miss my parents everyday. I treasurer so many memories of things we did and places we went. One of the very last trip with my parents was to Disneyland with my parents and daughters. I lost my Mother 25 years ago, Dad 17 years ago. God Bless you Pat and hoping you had a Wonderful Birthday. I know you Dad was looking down upon you on that day.

    It'll be 19 years next month since I lost my Dad & I still miss him. Thankfully I still have my Mum but as she will be 90 this May obviously time with her will now be limited so we need to cherish the time we have.
I hope you had a wonderful 70th birthday, did you do anything exciting?
Loads of love to you my wonderful Sparkfriend.

I lost my dad 8 years ago, it seems it was only yesterday I saw his smile. Time passes but you are right, the loss never goes away.
It's good to have memories that warm the heart.
I hope you had a good day!

Love Letter To Myself!

Monday, December 30, 2013

I saw on God Vine an article about writing a love letter to yourself. Thought about what I would say! So here goes. Dear Me, I am proud of who you are becoming , a healthier, more loving and caring person. You see your faults and try to work on them. You fail at times but you do not give up. I love that you truly care for the less fortunate and are willing to share what the Good Lord has bless you with. You remember that you are a precious child of God and do your best to be pleasing in His eye. Well, dear friends now it is your turn.

    Your letter to yourself was beautiful. I once read in a daily motivator that their are times we must be our own cheer leaders. It is so encouraging to speak over ourselves what God says about us.

    I didn`t see this....what a good thing to do. I have heard of doing this...never have, though. I do say things to myself when I am looking in the mirror, especially when I am feeling "funky". emoticon for the reminder

    That's SO beautiful, Pat! I had a therapist once who said that every time I looked in the mirror, to say kind things to myself. For a long time, I just cried; I couldn't. Thanks so much for doing this because when I get home today from my class, I will work on a letter to myself. Thanks for your giving and inspiring spirit, and have a wonderful last day of 2013! Onward to 2014! emoticon emoticon

  I wrote this blog to get people to write letters to themselves. So many times we can feel unlovable or disappointed in ourselves for not being all that we can be. I wanted it to be a reminder of how great you all are!

Will I Ever Stop Crying

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Every 9/11 I spend the day in tears. I remember so vividly that first 9/11 so clearly when the United States Of America changed forever. It still is unbelievable to me that men can be so cruel to do such as these terrorist did. I see the planes going into those buildings, people jumping from them ,the ash and people running in fear. I also see the incredible bravery of so many going into harms way to rescue people.The people on a plane deciding to die to save so many others from certain death. I pray for these families of all that were lost that day. My heart and soul cry out to God for them all. May God in His mercy keeps us safe from ever letting something like this happen again.

    Visit the Flight 93 Memorial if you get a chance. I walk it in tears. I look at the pictures of the passengers that flight and realize that they were just people like you and me. May God have mercy on them.

    Our country had its eyes opened to the terrible atrocities that brought such distruction to America on 9/11. We will never forget what happened that day, nor should we ever let this happen again. So many lives lost and at the same time so many heros bwtween the firefighters, police and those heros on the plane over Pa.

    The horrors of that day are etched in all our minds. As I was watching GMA that day, I saw the 1st plane go into the building before any word was mentioned and I wonder how a pilot could be so off course! Then we sat there and saw the 2nd one go into the other tower. By then the realization was there. I lived that day as we all did, praying. But my next day was different as my f-i-l passed away and I thought God was wonderful that He would take another soul into His arms & home. I am glad I didn't have to focus on the pain of others. Thank you for a wonderful post. We need to remember!!

    I totally understand, and I feel much the same way......Those men on the plane over Pennsylvania were so very brave to attack the terrorists and know that they were going to die.....They are most certainly heros and so are all the firemen and policemen who found themselves right in the middle of everything. I still see the whole scene in my mind's eye.

The Real Meaning of GPS

Sunday, July 21, 2013

We all are use to GPS being Global Position Sensor. This gives us directions on where we want to go. Well, for me GPS means God's Plan for Salvation. My blessed Jesus through His written word leads me to Heaven where I want to go. May we all turn to His written word this day and every day and through prayer and meditation walk with Him to Eternal Life with Him.
