Merry Christmas to ALL

Saturday, December 24, 2011

The hope of Christmas is for all of us - not just those who celebrate it.

That's why Christmas is my favorite holiday. It's the hope!

Over the centuries many have written about the wonder of a baby born for a unique purpose. He was specially sent by his father, the God of all, to do what no one else ever could or would. He would grow up to take on a job no one else was qualified to do - bear the penalty of the wrongs of all mankind to provide a way for the wrongdoers to be forgiven and live forever.

Is there any greater message of hope?

Today I celebrate that hope with you! May your Christmas be merry for the reason of hope given to us long ago!

Merry Christmas!

An Anniversary

Saturday, November 26, 2011

The day after Thanksgiving, when I was 15, I had an operation on my right knee. It was to correct a problem I had from dislocation of my knee cap. It left a 12 inch scar and required a couple months healing before I could walk without a cast and crutches.

Little did I know that 33 years later I would have completed 2 10ks and a couple 5ks. And while I may be at the back, that's ok. I'm doing things I never thought possible. Perhaps my world was too small then.

I hope you can find some joy in an anniversary such as this - it might not be surgery, but it could be just as profound in your memory.

Keep going...

    Congratulations on your 10 K and 5 Ks. It's amazing the things we can do as we get older that we couldn't (wouldn't) do when we were younger. Have a great day!

my thoughts on this whole spark thing

Friday, November 11, 2011

It has surprised me how good this experience has been. I remember when I signed up I wondered how much help a website could offer. But here I am over a year later still plugging along. I used iLoseIt to help with weight loss, SP has helped me maintain by offering all sorts of alternatives to sitting on the couch.

    Way to go on your Spark experience.

Noticed you are from Canton, Ohio. I lived in Elyria, Ohio for 20 years. I was last there in November 2009. I loved the people there and the beautiful sights there. I did not like driving in the snow (LOL), but I did like playing in the snow. emoticon

Wishing you blessings,
