Back Again....

Sunday, November 24, 2013

I don't know where I lost sight of myself, but somewhere in the past 6 months I did. In June my first grandchild Marshall Mason was born, and from there it was one struggle after another trying to find some sort of normal in my life. I've asked myself every single day what normal truly is, and for me I'm still not quite sure. My life is at the moment far from normal. The only strong and constant thing is that my love for God is strong, and my desire to keep pressing onward is still the driving force that keeps me going.

I have been saying day after day that it is bound to get easier, but in reality it hasn't. Just when I thought the battles were dying down, another more fierce one hit. If I tried to write them all, it would take hours, but let me just say it was from nearly losing my husband to a rare pneumonia, a deer hitting his car and no comprehensive insurance, among many, many more things hitting our family. The list could go on for hours, but the end result is me finding that I need God more, I need to find stability and calm. I need to stop relying on eating when I'm stressed and find the stress relief I truly need in the word of God, my music and writing.

So here I am... on this winding road, that has once again led me back here. Eating healthy again, exercising again... and finding me apart from all the chaos :)

    Angie, why don't you just concentrate on spinning the wheel and doing 10 minutes of exercise/day for now? And if you can, a short blog once a week so we know how you're. The two things you mentioned are severe emoticon and I know you'll get support here. Hang in here with us for just a few minutes per day. My prayers are here for you and your family. God bless you. emoticon

    Celeste' gave you wise counsel. One other thing to remember is that exercise is a great stress reliever. It is good for your mind and your body. May not solve your problems, but helps your mind and body cope with whatever problems you dealing with.

    Welcome back. Sorry things are so tough currently, that I can't do anything to help you with, but I can remind you that adding weight issues wont help any. Then again, that isnt what a person wants to hear either when one is burdened. I can remind you too, to throw your burdens on God because he will sustain you. He is the hearer of prayer.
