I believe in divine appointments. None of us are here by coincidence or accident. I believe that each encounter we have is an opportunity to learn and to teach, to love, to pray. I thank God for orchestrating this team in just such a way to strengthen the saints and glorify our God.

I think we ALL need a lot of prayer and thank God that this team is where I can come for it. And I also thank Him for being the only Judge that we have to worry about. What we think someone needs and what God knows they need are two totally different things.

Lazybutt is in my prayers and so are you Greenrug. Have a blessed Sonday and Love your neighbor as Christ loves you.

Yatmama... I dont mind being called Lazybutt... its because I have alway taken short cuts. Has nothing to do with actually being lazy or fast for me. I never been one to be lazy just the opposite! alway felt lifes too short to be worried about somethings is all, such things many people are anal about! Not me! I relax when I feel the need! Alway learned the turtle wins not the rabbit! and so I just take short cuts is all! Always have, alway will. It doesnt bother me at all to be called a name I am not! Trust me there is worst names I could have taken. (analyzethisfart or emmidr!) lol Whats behind the name is the psychology of a name! I have studied psycholgy and names; and coorelated this one for simplistic reasons. I felt fat and lazy the day I made it, put what you feel not what you are! I am nto the sum total of a screen name! If Iw as, then I woudl be scared to show up! lol I am number One is more important! And I put the year in my name because it helps me keep track when I started a group. Like making a file, mine are all numbered according to dates! That way its easier for me to locate stuff. I was always into numbers! I kind a think like a computer and I know which files to delete; first or last! Simplistic! even my mail box is numbered. lol If they think your fat, many wont feel so inclined to be beating you up who are as they think you are. I am Fat and lazy to a degree, but not to the point of being offended by it! I am not! I know the weight will come off, for I was alway thought thin and skinny! lol. Just the reverse for many others! I just dotn wnat to offend anyone and if my name offends anyone, its because they dotn relaly knwo me. Its an honest name I come by! I am lazy about a lot of things and I feel its less threatening to others like myself! I do sit around and its because I cant do all I want to do. Because I prefer to have down time than work my fanny off is why I chose that name. Its for no real reasoning but truth! I am fat because I am lazy! Truth does not kill you or define who youa re. what does is whats in your heart! I am neither fat nor lazy, ist just a quick name for an account.Now if I had put all numbers, many would think I was weird! lol But it does not mean I am really lazy! I think... Fat numbers! lol! lmfao!Dont worry there are worst things to worry about! lol

Greenrug. You may want to add pictures and more info on your Sparks page, it helps to make friends when you tell more of your interest. Susana

Thanks, I'll try going to Mytools. With the Lord's help I will find the right words for my friend. This bothers another friend of our too, so maybe if we both tell her. You and another team member on the rheumatoid arthritis site have become my friends. It is so encouraging to me. I have very little friends here. My daughter is 400 miles away and my son is in college. Again, thanks so much.

Emily

GreenRug, if memory serves, click MyTools on the top left of this page and then click Start. Read through your StartPage. There should be a spot that says MySparkPage or something like that. If you don't see it there, I'll be happy to call you and open a dummy account to walk you through it from the beginning if you like.

I hesitated to say anything to LazyButt, too, for fear of offending her or making her angry, but I just could not remain silent about it any longer. Pray and ask the Lord to prepare your friend's heart, to open the door for you to express your feelings about calling her child derogatory names. She is setting that baby up for failure without even realizing it, programming her to feel inferior and of lesser worth. I pray that she receives that message from you.

I get up in the morning and look forward to my spark teams messages. This is so great! After reading your comment, I'm going to do some exercises, which I wouldn't do if I didn't have your support. I don't know how to set up my spark page. I have to get my son, who is at college, to help me. I will try to pin him down. I agree that lazabutt should change her name now that she's on her journey. LazybuttNoMore is great! I have a friend, who calls her 2 year old grandaughter, Big Mama. She is two and overweight. I would like to tell her to change that but how do I tell her without her getting mad at me?

Hi, GREENRUG, and welcome. It's great to have you here with us. As LazyButt said, please do set up your SparkPage so we can stop by to leave you comments and Goodies and get to know you a bit!

LazyButt, for such a nice lady who is here working on getting healthier, it hurts my heart to call you something so derogatory. How's about LazyButtNoMore instead, something more positive that reflects your courageous efforts to become more fit? There are actually several good SparkArticles on negative nicknames that might help express what's in my heart for you. Do a SparkSearch and browse through them sometime. *hugs*
