2014


Thursday, January 02, 2014

Hopefully this year will be better than last year. Had a lot of ups and downs. My husband still in alot of pain from his surgeries. I didn't take care of myself for most of the year. Had to much stress. I have decided that this year will be my year.
I have started out with joining a challenge. I have started to exercise again. Which is giving me a lot of aches and pain. Today I walked for 2 miles inside(because of the snow) and did
6 loads of laundry. I did go out 3 times to walk the dogs. Will go out another 2 times before bed.
I have decided to put God first in my life. I know that I have to trust in Him to lead me along the way. I am going to read my bible from front to back during this year. I also will be finding a verse of scripture that I want as my mantra for the year. So if you have any ideas,please let me know.
I hope that everyone has a safe and blessed weekend!-Peggy emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Those are wonderful goals for any of us. emoticon When we abide in Christ and trust in God, no matter what happens in our lives, we have the peace of God through it all, and the assurance He is right there with us, helping us to succeed.

emoticon I have 2 favorite verses for when I am feeling low for one reason or another...from experiencing a trial or being hurt by someone, or being disappointed in myself.

"For we know that all things work together for good for those who love the Lord and are the called according to His purpose''. 'Romans 8:28

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jere. 29:11

God bless you as you take care of your own health this year.
You are important too, you know. emoticon

    I know when I am in the word and start my day with God, everything falls into place and I'm so thankful. My verse this month is 1 Corinthians 10:31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. I do love the Philippians verse as well....I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Sometimes, I just call out to God and ask Him to stop me from whatever I'm about to do....usually comfort myself with food. I ask Him to give me what I need. Try it....it works. Wishing you great success in 2014!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Whenever I'm tempted to overeat or feel like I cant handle a situation, I like to say in my mind or out loud: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!" I think its really great you have a goal to read the bible and use scripture as a mantra. Reading the bible is one of my goals this year too. You can do this! Wishing you a great 2014!
