It's A Happy Fit, Fabulous and Free Indeed Friday! emoticon emoticon

Greetings to you and thank you for Sparking by! I really get elevated when I write poetry or fiction. The Gifts of God are profitable in SO many ways! Mostly they Bless YOU! Well, I went out of town for Christmas and this month has been a bit sluggish for me in the area of my fitness. I still haven't written goals for the year. (Imma tell!) :) But in my heart I'm pushing through to get back and farther than I was in December. I had to make myself do some sort of strength training but NOW I think it's BACK! Praise the Lord! My favorite part of this journey IS working out and I know I can DO all things through CHRIST because HE strengthens ME! I'm RENEWED! Purpose has me getting up and doing it even when I want to lay down! That's it! Just DO! PLUS my fitness minutes made me frown this month! lol Love to share my heart!

“For Always”

Trudging around like I’m in concrete…
The devil is mad because he can’t keep-
Me away from my healthy lifestyle…
So I smile-
Even when I don’t want to workout-
Ten minutes gives me clout…
Because I got up and started to move-
Before you know it I’m in a groove…
Flapping and clapping and jumping high-
I feel so light I might fly…
Above the clouds passing by-
I’ve been stuck and I know why;
God’s love for me will never fail-
He saturates my heart with wells…
Of His power and might-
I have clearer sight…
I fight-
The good fight of faith…
As I take-
One step after another…
Going further-
Than ever before…
Look at all those open doors-
Generating life in me…
Oh how great it is to see-
All that I can be…
From now on I walk free-
From discouragement and despair…
I know that my God cares-
About every area of my life…
He lifts me higher than any kite-
Blowing in the wind…
I stand and spin-
Around and around…
I’m so happy I’m off the ground-
Soaring with the eagles in perfect form…
From now on I’m past the norm-
Supernatural Power lives inside…
In Christ I forever abide-
Without His love I could never be here…
In a place where there’s no fear-
Of what others think or say…
I’m delivered for always!

I give God PRAISE for He's with me all of my DAYS! Dancing with JESUS!

Even when you DON'T feel like it just get up and march in place. Run around. Jump some rope. Do wall pushups. Just MOVE something!

Love & Blessings!

Now, I think I've shown all of my pics from the makeover I got in Tulsa on 12/22/13. A sweet friend did it at her home and gave me CLOTHES too! That's the FAVOR of God!
