What a blessing to be back on Sparkpeople! I feel like everything's falling into place and my goals are back into sight. I'm tired today - I tend to not sleep well when it's close to my time of the month, for some reason. I only slept for abo... Read more
What is it about being tired that makes you want to eat?

Well, the tests came back negative. Praise God! I'm not a healing service sort of person, but I do believe that God can heal. It says so many times in the Bible. I think the change came, though when I just gave it up to the Lord. I said, 'O... Read more

Back in the saddle again.
