Glad you are back!

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

You made me feel emoticon . Goodies are such a powerful gesture, don't you agree?

Love,

Hello, I'm Meagan and I don't know how I found this team tonight, but I've been surfing/sparking for about 4hours. I cant' sleep. The hubby got on a plane and flew to Europe for the week - it's a job thing. And it's the first time we've been apart since we met Valentines Day 2009. But, today before he left, he said the most beautiful prayer while asking God to give us both Peace about the trip and the week ahead. It just makes me Love him more, if that's possibLe. Since, it is a job related trip - we might not have much connection. He took my laptop but the hours are different, so I'm not sure how much reaL-Time will get, but it will be nice to see an email or two from him. So, I could really use some extra prayers this week. Tonight's not too bad, and I am having Faith that I will have Peace this week.

Hi Elaine and Judy,
Life is indeed a gift. I love that.So often we are tempted to let it pass us by but we must not let it. We need to make the most of everyday. Anyday we have not spread a little of the love of God is a day not truly lived.
I hope that in this Team you will know the love of God shared with you and that you too, will share it with us. It's wonderful to have you both with us. I so look forward to getting to know you better.
Blessings

Hi, I am Elaine and new to this team. I joined January 2012. I am single, retired and love Jesus, my two daughters, grandchildren, flowers, making jewelry, gardening, my kitty Princess Mia and driving my car on mystery trips. I like to study the Word in a group called BSF (Bible Study Fellowship, an international study). I want to please Jesus with my eating and compliment my particular body needs. Walking is my choice of physical activity. Recently, I started water jogging. Being a grandmother of eight, 6 boys and 2 young ladies 17 & 19, can be challenging as they are turning into teenagers all but my 7 year old and 9 year old boys. I agree with you JUDIGIRL52, life is a gift!! emoticon

Hi Everyone! I'm Judi and new to this team. I joined SP Dec 30 of 2011 and have been so blessed. I truly believe Life is ahead of us! I'm 52, teaching 6th Grade and still raising my youngest 2 children. My husband and I teach at the same Christian School, have 2 precious grandbabies and are both grateful to have found SP. I want to live life forward and be able to love the Lord and others with vigor and joy!

Hi Everyone,
I just found this group and it looks right on for what I'm trying to do right now - realign my life to live healthily in all ways, in and for Jesus. Perfect timing! I'm starting to read Rex Russell's "What the Bible Says About Healthy Living" - in fact we will use it as the basis for our family "worship night" - and I've also just started a gluten-free diet.
Much more to come, but I will add that I've been a Christian since college (graduated 1982) and am in a period of looking again at how to integrate my faith in ALL areas of my life. I am a history teacher, a runner, a homeschooling dad, and as of yesterday, married now for 23 years!
I look forward to learning from and giving back to this community.

Best to All,
Ray

Hi Sandy,
You are so very welcome. I'd encourage you to post on the current chat thread as often as possible to get to know people and then any others as you fancy. As you know we are about to do a challenge so there should be a lot activity on the site....unless I work them so hard that they have no time to be on the computer! LOL
I hope we can help you with keeping God in the right place during this lonely year. We are not close geographically but I'm sure that if you come here often you will develop good friendships.
Bless you heaps

Hi, I'm Sandy. A South African living in the Middle East - Doha, to be exact.
I have a hugely busy year ahead, as I'm sutyding again, but cannot do it without the Lord Jesus giving me strength and ability.
I still need to lose 6kgs - ready and committed though! :) I'm on day 4 of the January jumpstart challenge, too. Enjoying it a lot.
Trying to keep the joy of the Lord in my heart, despite various difficulties.
Because I don't get around much here, I don't have many local friends. MIssing our family and friends a lot, but we were blessed by a visit from my lovely daughter over Christmas.

God bless everyone...may we encourage each other in Him. emoticon

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

2 Timothy 1:7


God will make a way, where there seems to be no way...

Hey I know a few people on this team and it seems a smaller more active group. I am trying to get back to maintenance after several months of rather poor choices. Could make excuses but why bother. I am not new to Sparks just this team.
I am a believer from ND and looking to live healthy in the new year. I co-lead a first place 4 health group here and I need to be a better example to my group.

I am not skilled to understand what GOD has willed what GOD has planned I only know at his right hand stands one who is my SAVIOR

Hey Ya'll!!! I was asked by Margaret to join in this group, so beware, I am here!! LOL!! I am a Spark Lovin, Jesus Praisin, Fluffylicious Woman!!! I have been on Spark for almost 1 year, and it has changed my life. Before the Holidays I had lost 32 pounds, but I now have found a few, but ready for the New Year to begin!! I can't wait to get back into the pool, and start my Water Aerobics again, and I need to get back to tracking my food!!!! I will do my best to stay in touch, but as many of you know Spark can also take control, so I am going to try this year to manage my time better. As long as we keep our eyes on Jesus, He will order our Paths, and give us the Grace and the Strength to keep us on our Journey. We are the Temple, and I want to keep this Temple strong, and pure.... I know that this is going to be a great year!!!! Shannon

Keep Sparkling!! Hugs! Shannon

Hi Felicia,
It's good to have you with us. You are most welcome. Please feel free to post when ever you need support (and when you don't) and we'll do what we can. The most frequented thread is probably the daily check in so that is mostly where you will get the quickest action. I look forward to getting to know you better.

Hi Julie,
Sorry about your other team. Their loss is our gain. We're really pleased to have you and hope you enjoy it here with us. I hope we can help you get rid of those 20 lbs for good and be a healthier woman of God in the process. This is a great place to unload and de-stress with all the support here. I've found the weight loss and/or exercise has made me a much happier person. Hope you find the same.

Hi, my name is Julie and I live in southeastern Minnesota. I was always thin except for one year in college just before I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis (which destroys the hormone producing cells of the thyroid) and started on medication. Then menopause struck and my waist began to expand. Stress, burnout and depression sapped my energy so my activity level decreased. I'm getting back on track, beginning to increase activity and eat a more healthy diet both physically and spiritually. One of my goals is to lose 20 pounds. I found this team and thought it a good one to replace another team that has become inactive. I'm looking forward to interacting with you.

Hi Linda,
I've not heard of the book but it has an interesting title. I assume you think it's worth the buy if I can track it down???? Is it that which has been the reason behind your recent turn around?
I am SO VERY VERY VERY pleased you found us. Hope you feel at home with us.

Hi ladies! My name is Linda aka bittygirl and I am a spirit filled wife, mother and grandmother. I have been on SP for several years, but just noticed this team. At this time in my journey, I thought it would be a great idea to join yall - since I am reading, "Made to Crave". Have any of you read the book or done the bible study? I am absolutely loving it. I am on Chapter 10 and am completing the personal reflections at the end of each chapter. It has been very enlightening and empowering in taking my weight loss journey to the next level.

I look forward to getting to know yall better. Have a blessed week.

Thank you, Karen! I'm definitely "on board" and thankful to be surrounded with many others who serve our Lord Jesus and want Him to be LORD and Master over every corner of our lives. I have set some goals, and plan to keep tracking, exercising and communicating here to use all the tools He has graciously made available. It's been a lifelong struggle/battle, but there is JOY in the journey as my mantra has become "NEVER GIVE UP!" PERSEVERE in obedience and bringing GLORY to Him with healthy choices, and forsaking sin patterns that tend to become"entrenched" due to overuse. :0)

More later! and THANKS for the welcome!!
Holly

Hello, sisters.... I'm just discovering these wonderful forums with Christ-followers, and what a blessing they are. I've been loving SP and using the tools consistently for about 5 weeks now, and am committed to the journey of honoring God with this body He bought at such an incredible price. It's not an easy road, but He never promised that, did He?! His was not, either.
Hoping to check in here pretty frequently, and would love to "friend" some of you! I'm a New England gal who is loving the autumn weather, even though summer has flown by way too quickly.... blessings and joy in this journey!
My real name is Holly.... check out my page.

Sounds like a great course. I think we could all benefit from courses like that. Do you think they actually learn much or are they disinterested? I can imagine it could be a full time task to keep many of them focussed. They would be so unused to a structured learning environment.
Bless you that you take the time to teach such wonderful life skills to those who, for what ever reason, have not previously managed to gain them. You are a treasure.

Life Skills. Well, we use a curriculum called CHANGES. Changing Habits and Acquiring New Goals to Achieve Success. I am actually taking a break from writing lesson plans for next week. We will be discussing personality types, self-esteem, and self-control (particularly anger). The irony of me teaching this class is not lost on me, believe me.

There are 7 units - Personal Development, Interpersonal Relationships, Civic/Legal Responsibilities, Victim Awareness, Health and Wellness, Career, and Re-Entry into Society.

So happy to meet you, Michele. Sorry that you're struggling with your weight this week
but that's why we're here, so we are happy to support you any way we can.

God bless your efforts, I hope that your job doesn't get cut!! Tell me what you mean by life skills, something like balancing a checkbook?


blessings, Sue

May The Lord bless you and keep you.

May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you.

May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.

My name is Michele Brown. I am a wife and mom. I also teach life skills in a men's prison. At least for now. What with budget cuts, I don't know if I will still be there in a couple of months.

I went to church camp last week. I was so discouraged by my fatigue in walking the hills and failure to climb the 100 steps to chapel and the pain in sitting in the seats in chapel (I drove up the hill). It has fueled me to double down on my efforts to lose this weight. If I go again next year, I want to climb those steps. I want to sit in the seats without one of those bolts digging into my thigh.

I gained 10 pounds over the week. I think it was all in my left foot, which looked more like a football. I have lost about 5 pounds of this water weight over the weekend.
