I was "Sparking", with my Youtube playlist going, when this song came on. I had to pause and get the link and share it.
There are things I would like, would like to do, places I would like to go, goals I would like to accomplish. But things happen.
I'd LIKE to get to 160 pounds...but I'm older now, the skin isn't so elastic, I've had four pregnancies, I've been way overweight - obese - and I can't afford (if I WANTED it) to have surgeries to cut away the excess skin.
I'd LIKE to continue taking trips by "lancha" between Pucallpa and Iquitos, and by "peque-peque" to visit more remote churches in the jungles of Peru, but the arthritis and probable hip replacement would make such a venture unwise.Wouldn't want to knock the new hip out of joint in the middle of nowhere!
(This is a video I made with scenes from such excursions)
I am working at bringing my weight down, trying to be more fit, and shall always do the best I can.
But more than anything, I want more of Jesus. If I don't have Him, what do the other things really matter? We will all pass from this life, no matter how HEALTHY we are. Death is inevitable. But in Jesus, it's not the end. This is our glorious hope!
Matt. 16:25-27 "For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in his Fatherís glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done."
