I've been a member of SparkPeople since Aug. 2009. In that time, I've gained 25 pounds, so I need larger clothes. My health has deteriorated - two of my doctors have upped my meds and I've gained two more 'diseases/illnesses'.

A Little Bit of Where I've Been Mentally
These past weeks have been a bit wild for me. I've been suffering from depression, but today I heard from my doctor's office and she's upping one of my meds. We'll see how that does. When I saw her last week or so, I told her I didn't want to t... Read more

"How Great Is Our God"
A few years back, DH and I had the privilege of watching a DVD, "How Great is Our God" by Louis Giglio. Get a copy and watch it. It will blow your mind.

In Time of Trouble
"In time of trouble say:
First -- God brought me here. It is by His will I am in this strait place. In that I will rest.

Odds and Ends in my life
If it isn't one thing, it's six others. Ok, not really six, and nothing that can't be dealt with. I've had a Kindle Paperwhite for 3 years and love it. I went to charge it again last eve and found that no matter what I did, the only way I can... Read more
