Finding peace and joy in this holiday season has been challenging.
School is so crazy, two more class days and I am done for this semester!
I am proud of my work, it is so intensely crazy and busy busy busy. No time to take a breath
some days, and there are days I feel like I am going to bust!
I take it one day at a time.
Now it is coming to an end! I am finishing with three A's and one B. Although, that B could
turn into an A with my final exam.
I am seeking Joy in everything that has to do with Jesus this season, whether it is in the music I play, the lights on the tree, or the people I greet. I am trying to hang onto
the JOY of life. I am so desperately full of despair, some of what I have known before, I am
puling from my experiences to keep my faith in the ONE who holds my life. The ONE who orders my steps.
I want to THANK YOU for your prayers and support, they have helped.
I am sorry I have not been on spark very much, busy with school, work, ect. I killed my computer this week - thank God I just got a new lap top for school.
MERRY MERRY Christmas!
My surgery is December 20th. Please keep me in prayer. May God bless you!

Thank you for all that have been praying for my dad. He is home. He has to go get a few more tests out patient. I am thankful for everyone's thoughts and prayers for him.
I have been very busy with dad in the hospital, school, work,homework... I am so very thankful to be able to be this busy.
I am thankful for all of the advancement in medical care. I went in for my annual physical and I did not get all good news. Being so busy is not good for my kidneys. I have been so exhausted.
One of the worst parts of kidney failure, when you get exhausted, you stay that way, until you can rest rest rest. Well I cannot rest, rest, rest until Thanksgiving week. So I am making sure I get to bed at a decent time no matter what does not get done either in the house or homework.
My exhaustion is why I have not been on spark. I have thought about leaving spark, but I am still striving for health. I may not lose weight, I didnt join spark to lose weight, I joined spark to gain health, hoping along the way I would lose some weight.
I walk everyday, I eat portions, I choose veggies and fruits over the crackers, chips, and other unhealthy choices I used to make. These things are now first nature to me.
I need spark to continue my journey. I need encouragement from my spark friends to keep on keeping on. I need the health tips, trackers, and most of all the teams.
So thank you for being part of my spark journey. I need you too!
