Staying Patient

Monday, September 05, 2011

My favorite verse is Ephesians 4:2-3. Be always humble, gentle, and patient. It's not a coincidence that this is when the pastor spoke of patience during the race for God. He also spoke of the psalm used for my son's favorite song I would sing to him every night. Hosannah's Jesus, the Lover of My Soul. I may be in last place, but I am shuffling without stopping from glory to glory.

    Patience is a hard thing to keep in mind when you want something. Good attitude!

A ruptured disc was found in my lower back after the 5th MRI. Now I need to find out if I should go to a chiropractor or a surgeon. They say usually surgery after 2 months. I've had this for 8 yrs. They pain is progressing. It's a good thing I haven't been lifting any more or bending over much.

Just Keep Shuffling

Friday, August 19, 2011

To each their own. My personal achievement this summer has been to walk to the mailbox and back without falling. When I can run errands is when I've gotten 10 minutes of exercise. Thank God for my kids. We have still been able to help family and friends and take care of the basics at home. I don't ever expect to be compared to Mrs. Cleaver, even on a good day. I haven't banked my Spark. It is still smoldering. Keeping the faith and Jesus is my best friend.

    Just keep the faith. You can do all things through Christ, who strengthen you.

" Now the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will personally restore, establish, strengthen, and support you. "

Emotional Eating

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Part of my problem was hormonal. I did realize afterwards there was a little mindless, comfort eating too-

I wish this article would actually talk about serotonin, a feel good chemical .

What an interesting article. Still have to watch what goes in my mouth and not do mindless eating. I've written on a card that I read to myself every day: "Conscious of WHAT put in mouth." "Every bite of food has calories!!"

Hope you are doing well and not too much mindless, comfort eating.

Getting Closer

Friday, July 15, 2011

I'm almost there. By being very, very careful with my "diet" and 5 to 10 min. of exercise a day, I am almost at my goal. I am optimistically cautious that this is "it".
