This year is the year to do it!!!!!!!! Change 2013! Grace and Peace to you all Fri, 4 Jan 2013 14:09:42 EST Whyyyyy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5014019 I don't know why I run from SparkPeople. I haven't been exercising at all. I haven't been eating right. I'm so emotionally taxed that all I've been doing is resting and seek the Lord in prayers and fasting. <BR> <BR> My heartis broken. I need a healing. <BR> <BR> All prayers appreciated. God delivered my from a life of bondage to sin. I'm sure he can heal my brokenness. Peace to you all. <BR> Mon, 13 Aug 2012 18:20:06 EST Body Envy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4895921 Last night i had a dream that i was on a game show. the game show host asked me to quote the 100 psalm. in my dream i began to quote the psalm...when I woke up I looked it up. it was a psalm of thanksgiving. <BR> <BR> 1 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. <BR> <BR> 2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. <BR> <BR> 3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture....
