hi judy! yes there is so much more to life than being on a diet, i try to remember that we are Not what we weigh and that should not define us, but sometimes i do get bogged down in trying to lose the wieght. how is your gs doing? much better, i hope. we are having some really cold
and damp weather here and it makes wanting to get things done, in or out of the house very difficult. all you want to do is come home and wrap up in a blanket on the couch, lol! i hope this will bring us some good rain, but so far it hasn't done that either. time to start getting ready for bed, be blessed and have a wonderful day tomorrow.

DEQUINTA, it is so good to have you back! Sorry to hear of all your problems and believe that from here on out, there will be nothing but blessings and prosperity for you! Those 2 Team Leaders have been on here for a good while now and I haven't heard from them in ages! I won't take them off because I know they are out there somewhere! :)

As long as God tells me to keep this team going, I will! I believe it's unlike any other team on SP! Not always giving challenges regarding losing weight, etc. There is so much more to life. I believe in being healthy both physically and spiritually! We all come in different shapes and sizes and the main thing is to learn how to take care of ourselves which is God's temple by eating healthy, nutritious foods, exercising our bodies by walking and moving and by feeding and exercising our spirits as well! As long as I have breath, I will share and help any and everyone I can to do both!

I am so thankful for you and truly appreciate you too!

Love and Blessings,
~ Judy ~

emoticon hi judy!

guess what? the world is NOT square and i did not fall off the edge/lol

on dec 10 my home was shut down because of a gas leak and in the midst of this my computer was hijacked by a company that i hired(because i learned of it thru verizon, whom i truste) to speed it up!!

i returned home on sunday, feb 10 and got a hand me down computer hooked up on tuesday
feb 12. i was really afraid i was going to sign on to this team and find that it had been closed down and i was so happy to see that you were still here and have 2 new co-captains. i am always blessed by the daily scripture and thought of the day threads.

i hope you are doing well and look forward to a great year in 2013!

I haven't been on much this week because we have had some challenges in our lives this week ~ actually since Saturday! Jacob aka Jakey D my 8 year old grandson was involved in an accident with a BB gun Saturday and got shot in the eye. He was taken to Cook's Children's Hospital and was in a 3 hour surgery to repair the damage. The BB went straight through his pupil of his right eye.

The remarkable thing is the way he has handled the situation and ministered and is ministering to others during all of this! He is an extremely strong little guy, both physically and spiritually!

He came home from the hospital Monday but not before going to Dallas to see one of the top Retina Specialists in the country! When the doctor walked in he said, "Well, hello, Jacob, how are you?" Jake said, "I am good, Dr. Spencer, how are you?" Sara, my daughter in love, said the look on Dr. Spencer's face was priceless!

They see the surgeon, who preformed the surgery, today and then have an appointment with a Cornea Specialist in Ft. Worth tomorrow! Through all of this, Jacob has only cried twice. His parents have been told that a BB wound in the eye is the thing that does the most damage because it is completely round and large. This BB went straight through his pupil. It took 3 hours of surgery because they had so much repairing to do. His surgery was on Saturday and on Sunday he was able to see light and also to tell the direction of the Dr's hand when he moved it!

We are praying for Jake's vision recovery and we will not be moved! We KNOW who the Great Physician is and most importantly so does Jake! Jake has a very close, personal, intimate relationship with Jesus and his attitude has been nothing but positive through all of this.

Sunday was his sister's 14th birthday and when his Aunt DeeDee walked in his room at the hospital, the first thing he asked her was could she take a video on her phone! She said yes and what of...he said 'of me'. She told him she would give him a signal when she was ready and she did! This is what he said, " Happy Birthday, Emma, I love you!" You think his MiMi didn't shed some tears!!! ??? This is my sweet, considerate, loving, caring, compassionate Jakey D!

If you are on Facebook, you can follow his progress with pictures too on Jacob's Vision community page!

Everyone have a blessed day!

Love and Blessings,

There is so much negativeness in the world! satan is really running scared because he is trying to throw fear into everyone at every turn! I am so thankful that I KNOW, HAVE A CLOSE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH and TRUST God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son and The Holy Spirit!!! satan is nothing but a little wimp! The only power he has is the power we give him by believing his lies and walking in fear, doubt and worry! he has no place in my life and I constantly remind him of his future and where he is spending eternity!

I may be in this world, but I am not of it! I am a Child of God Almighty! Jesus Christ (the Anointed One) is my Lord and Savior and The Holy Spirit is my Comforter who guides my every step!

Don't believe the lies of satan. This Nation, The United States of America, is God's Nation and He has not forsaken it, but it is up to us to stand strong and declare the Word of God over every situation; rebuke the evilness and to pray for and love our enemies with the Love of God! Hallelujah! All Glory to God Almighty!

Happy New Year! My new year resolution is to spend more time with the Lord and let him do the driving more often. Try and learn to let him take the wheel and stop being a back seat driver. Hope everyone has a wonderful year and good luck with all your goals. emoticon emoticon

Hello friends!
Sunny and chilly here in Red Oak. Getting ready to go out and not sure how to dress for the day... I'm sure it'll warm up more soon. I'm heading to Arlington to see a friend I haven't spent time with in a while. We're going to my favorite place to eat... pray saints! lol ;-)
Judy, love the poem!
Everyone have a great day!

This is a reminder for all of us! I hope you enjoy it!

The Heart of a Child

Matthew 18:4 "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like one of these children is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven."

When we are children there's a part of us that is open to love, and faith and trust.
Through a little child's laughter and teary eyes we grow older and that part of us dies.
Innocence lost, is so hard to regain.
We get forgiven but hold on to the pain.
But Jesus said to the crowd roaring wild; "Come to me with the heart of a child."

It's so hard to open ourselves up to others, we're afraid to trust our own sisters and brothers.
But there is a love so costly and dear, a love strong enough to cast out fear.
Let's take off our masks and drop the facade and live like the children of the Living God.
Take a chance, you may be betrayed if you risk it all but He'll be there to catch you when you slip and fall.

There's a holy laughter, and tears so pure, there's an innocence that will always endure.
There's a dream and vision, an endless sea, the tingling of life in a heart set free.
Nothing to prove, no possessions to hold but a joy and peace more precious than gold.
It's a beautiful place, fiery and wild when we return to the heart of the child.

Remember that our Father to whom we pray considers us His children each day and like little children we must learn to rely on the love of our Father who reigns on high.
So much prejudice to forget and unlearn, it's the heart of the child for which we yearn.
We can't enter heaven with a heart defiled, it must change through Jesus to the heart of the child.

Love and Blessings,
~Judy♡~

Wow, Dequinta, 95! What a blessing! Hope you enjoy the time catching up with your family.
Judy, I agree about the greed of black Friday. Materialism is lord of too many people's lives. I feel sorry for people in retail this time of year. I've a friend who works at Neimann's who makes most of his money for the year in the months of November and December though. He'll barely be home between now and the middle of January when returns are all done. I couldn't work in retail! lol
Everyone have a fantastic day... I'm going to get back to cleaning house!

I hate it that the stores open midnight on Thanksgiving and then have their 'black Friday'! I remember when the only things you could find open on Thanksgiving Day were 7 Eleven stores and one or two restaurants! The employees of these stores don't get to enjoy a day of thankfulness with their families! We have all gotten too materialistic and greedy!

Ok, I am through ranting now! I did good on the eating yesterday but my problem is that I still can't cook for just Paul and me so I have way too many leftovers! Half the turkey and half my dressing went in the freezer and I only made one Chocolate Mousse pie so just making sure that I am keeping my portions small! :)

I didn't do the black Friday shopping nightmare today. I'm at home catching up on housework and laundry. Anyone go out and brave the masses? I finished my Christmas shopping earlier in the week and BOY and I glad I'm through!
How'd we do on the food front? I had more than I should have but not as much as I'd have liked to have. lol My worst choice was a tiny sliver of peanut butter pie. Not beating myself up though. I didn't try the chocolate, butterscotch or pecan pies that were there! =0) Hope everyone is having a good day!

Happy Monday!
Judy, I actually took a friend and went to hear my guy friend preach this weekend at his church. He's not a preacher but teaches the men's bible study group and fills in for his pastor when he needs a day off. He was good! He invited my friend and I to stay at his house with him and his kids... it was great! =0) Got to meet the kids, spend time with him, and see a little of his heart through his message too. God's timing is perfect! I'm excited to see what God is going to do with us... I really think he feels the way I do but was waiting to see me with his kids as well as waiting to hear from God on the subject. I know THIS guy isn't making a move outside of God making His will plain. I'm OK with that... just going to be still ;0)

You have to have a plan!

HELLO EVERYONE! SORRY TO HAVE BEEN LAX ABOUT POSTING, I AM VERY GLAD
THE TEAM IS GOING TO REMAIN ACTIVE AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO POST DAILY!
JUDY WE DO APPRECIATE THE TIME AND EFFORT YOU PUT INTO THIS TEAM AND I ALWAYS RECEIVE A BLESSING FROM YOUR SCRIPTURES AND DAILY THOUGHTS, I KNOW THAT DAILY IS A LOT AND WE ALL WOULD UNDERSTAND IF IT WERE WEEKLY OR 2 OR 3 TIMES A WEEK, IT PROBABLY TAKES MOST OF US THAT LONG TO READ IT AND LET IT SINK IN/LOL! I AM ALWAYS TOUCHED BY THE POEM AFFIRMING THAT GOD IS OUR FRIEND AND THROWING DARTS WAS A NEW ONE FOR ME BUT IT TRULY DEMONSTRATES HOW THE THINGS WE SAY AND DO CAN BE HURTFUL TO OUR LORD, YET HE ALWAYS REMAINS FAITHFUL TO US!!
BE BLESSED AND HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

Good for you, Nancy! I really like Joyce Meyer too because she is direct and doesn't 'sugar coat' it! She is a teacher and that is what I like! Kenneth & Gloria Copeland, Jerry Savelle, Jesse Duplantis, Charles Capps and a few others are the ones I can really receive from! If you haven't heard of Charles Capps, his ministry is the words of your mouth and how you can bring things to pass in your life (good and bad) by your words. What you sow is what you reap! He was a farmer first! I would definitely recommend his books! And definitely 'The Tongue ~ A Creative Force'!

Love and Blessings,

Hello, hello!
Had a wonderful day at work and looking forward to another one tomorrow. I've been watching Joyce Meyer teach on murmuring and complaining. I'm kind of a direct, plain spoken person and I love how she just puts it out there. This week I'm practicing speaking good things over the people around me... and trying to fast complaining!

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone made it out to church. We had awesome P&W today. I was in children's church so I missed the message... get to pick up my CD on Wednesday though so I'm caught up before next Sunday. Hope y'all have a blessed day!

Happy almost-Friday! =0)

I have to tell you how amazing God is... like you don't already know! lol

My niece Jenna has not been living a Christian life. She was living with/engaged to an atheist man. I tell you, I PRAYED that man away from her! She's been broken up with him a few months now.

Anyway, about a couple of weeks ago she called me, crying about how she isn't happy and knows she needs God back in His rightful place in her life but she doesn't want it to be like all the other times where it doesn't last and she's back to her "old self" after a few days. I talked to her for a while about how she has to make the effort to know God, get into the word, spend time in prayer, put GOOD things into her spirit... that kind of thing. Before I got off the phone with her I prayed with her and specifically asked that God would give her confirmation that this time can be different and that it would be confirmation that she could NOT mistake for coincidence.

God is so faithful!!! She called me back the next day with 2 different ways God had confirmed this with her, things that she KNEW were God talking! So exciting!

Then I talked to her tonight and she had been watching episodes of Joyce Meyer she had DVRed and actually taking notes on everything and researching the scriptures used! She told me everything she is learning and talked about how every episode has something JUST for her. She is FINALLY excited about reading the word and is seeing how God is changing her.

I am just so thankful for the faithfulness of God! He doesn't have to give us confirmation of anything, but He it did because we asked Him to do it. Isn't He just so amazing???
Sorry, know this was a pretty long post, but I just had to share this! God is so good! =0)

Okay, I was having an 'overwhelmed' moment the other day! I really can't shut Texans Sparkin' the Flame with Christ' family! It's not about the numbers, it's about all of you! Besides...we are a family! I love each and everyone of you and I will keep it going even if I can't be on every day! Thank you for your responses!

Love and Blessings,

Judy, Thank you for all you do. So sorry I've not been on here much. Like all of us so busy it's hit an miss with me lately. But I am thankful for all you do to keep this going. But in the end its your decision since your the one who has to run the team. I'll go with the choice you make. Would still like to keep in touch with you if you do decide to shut it down. Thanks.

Judy I am so sorry for neglecting this team! You put a lot of work into it, and I apologize for taking that for granted and not being responsive... that's not how team members act. Whatever you choose to do, I am fine with. But I will make an effort to at least stop by and check in every day. I appreciate all you do and will be more active in the future!
Thanks!
Nancy

Good morning! I know that everyone is extremely busy...I know I have been and I haven't been on the team site as much as usual! I am beginning to think that maybe it's time to close down the Texans Sparking the Flame with Christ family page! Because we don't have a humungous number of members, we don't have very many that are active. I have been keeping it going for me as much as for anybody, but it gets harder and harder. If anyone reads this, please let me know your thoughts on it! I love and pray for each one of you daily and will continue to do so! I will not delete the team page but will not continue to work at keeping it going unless anyone wants me to! I will do so as long as there is someone who can benefit from it! Waiting to hear from you all!

Love and Blessings Always,
~ Judy ~

from "devotions for dieters" by dan r dick
a diet for 2 is easier to do!
1 thessalonians 5:11
therefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
this is from a little devotions for dieters book given to me by a friend and i thought it truly fit for today. i did not exactly understand the scripture for today but i am going to spend this week studying romans 6. my prayer for this team is always the same"Lord i pray for my sisters on this site and on this team that you will take away the desire for sugary, fatty, processed foods and fill us with a desire for lean meats, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean dairy products so that we may be healthier and filled with energy to be better servants
in your service. amen"

be blessed, dequinta

Thanks, Dequinta! I have been not as active on it lately either! This past week has been especially busy with DH and I going out shooting about 3 days! It's hard to keep it going when no one participates! :( But I'll keep on going even if it's for just one person! Congratulations on being made a leader on the Texas Team...I think! :) Have a wonderful weekend!

yes, thankyou judy for your words and your pics!!! i have been sporadic with my posts but a lot of days i check in and read your thought for the day and daily scripture even if i don't reply!!
i became a leader of the texas team and also joined the blc team all within about a month and
did not realize how time consuming these 2 things would be, but i enjoy them both and feel i am benefiting physically so i am trying to hang in there and i know eventually it will surely get to be a little less overwhelming!! i miss you guys here tho, and would not want to see this team
absolve! God Bless and i pray for more participation here starting with ME!

Oh the Hill Country!!! It's been calling me... yet another sign that it is time for a visit. Hubby and I so LOVE Fredericksburg and generally go at least once a year. This year has been too crazy. I have the itch... we must go soon, if only for the day!

Thanks!! I already told Robert that we have to go and SOON!! I have a Canon EOS Rebel XS and typically have the 18-55mm lens on it. I have never shot in RAW, I guess I need to try that!

I have a Canon 1D Mark II, but it's not just the camera. I shoot my pictures in RAW, then use Lightroom to process and convert them. Also, this is the way I see colors! I've had people ask my if my photos are HDR and no, they are JVC (Judy's Vibrant Colors)! It is a beautiful Gardens! Since the first time we went 4 years ago, we haven't been back to the FW Botanical Gardens once! It is a strolling Garden built with love! Here is the link to Clark Gardens. www.clarkgardens.org

It is between Weatherford and Mineral Wells ~ a little over an hour from our house! It is beautiful and so peaceful! Go to my website judyv.smugmug.com and you can see what it is like! We go on Tuesdays. We get there about 7:30 so Paul can take some pictures before he starts on the Garden trains and we leave about 2:30! You would love it!

Hi Judy, no he's not a firefighter. He works at PolyAmerica plastics company. If you have ever bought Husky, Members Mark (Sam's), Remarkable (Costco) or several other 'store brand' trash bags, you helped keep him in a job!! He has been there for almost 22 years and NEVER been laid off. THAT I am thankful for! Hours have been cut before, but never below 36 per week. He works in the shipping department, that's probably why he doesn't gain weight, he's always moving or the forklift is vibrating it off of him!!
Where is Clark Gardens?? Sounds like somewhere I need to go!

Wise girl! So what does your husband do? Is he a firefighter? With the weather getting cooler I need to start walking again. I walk every Tuesday when I go to Clark Gardens, but that is not a 'paced' walk. I am there 6 hours with my camera so I take my time just enjoying all 35 acres!

I'm disappointed... I have gone either to the gym or to the park every day this week and planned on going today. I haven't been getting to bed early enough for how early I get up now since I am working at home. My feet are so puffy that my walking shoes are too tight. It's my own fault. I know I take after my mother and she has the same problem. We retain water, really bad! I've had the heart checked and everything so it's nothing serious, just very irritating!! I will have to make up for it.
On the bright side, I have 210 minutes of cardio scheduled per week and I'm already at 145 and I still have Friday and Saturday. Yes, hubby will be home, so no gym... but he will definitely want to go for a walk with the cooler weather when I get finished working tomorrow afternoon.
I have mapped out our neighborhood and we have several ways to walk a mile or two.
I am NOT going to let this sidetrack me. I have to put my feet up and get to bed at a decent time tonight!
Extra water to drink too...

Well, I have been back and forth on SP for a couple of years... on again, off again. It's like a crazy relationship. Hope you're in the mood to read...
I clicked on the 'I need support' in the huddle because I really wasn't wanting to go to the gym today. My legs are a bit sore from going on Monday and walking the trail at the park yesterday. Then, I was dozing off toward the end of my work day and thought maybe I could skip today and make up for it tomorrow. All I am doing right now is walking on the treadmill.
So, why do I need support? Exactly for those times when I just don't have the motivation.
I just started working from home on Monday, finally!! I still have to clock in and clock out and keep a schedule but, since I don't have to drive to and from, it has given me an hour that I didn't have. I promised myself that, when I started working at home, I would get back on track and go back to the gym. Sometimes I need someone to remind me of that.
Over the last 3yrs and 9 months, since I started on SP, I lost 40 pounds and kept it off for about 4 months. It slowly started coming back. Before I knew it, I had gained 25 of that 40 back. Then I just quit trying for a while. I would lose a few, gain a few, lose a few, gain... you get the idea. So, now I am only 6 pounds less than when I started almost 4 years ago. I gained back 34 of the 40 I had lost!!
My husband is awesome, very supportive all the way through my rollercoaster!! He is one of those who just doesn't gain weight. We've been together for almost 15 years and he has weighed between 152 and 156 the entire time!! He says though, "Hey I was 30 pounds less in my 20's". However, he does not have a clue that I am doing this. His schedule makes it easy for me to do without him knowing. :-) I want to see how long it takes for him to notice once the weight starts coming back off. At the same time, I don't want to disappoint him if it doesn't.
THAT is where I need support! I need those 'yes you can' comments when the scale isn't nice.
emoticon

p.s. I did go to the gym today though!! That little voice in my head said "you promised"

What a lovely weekend! Yesterday's sky and clouds were gorgeous! We went to Clark Gardens for Billie Clark's 'going home' celebration! She had Alzheimer's for the last several years and for the last 3 or 4 years has been in House of Hope in Wichita Falls, a home for Alzheimer's patients. It was a beautiful celebration of her life and it was held at the Channel Garden which was her favorite place! In fact, the Channel Garden was designed and envisioned by Billie and was the beginning of the Clark Gardens today! It was a lovely celebration and a true tribute to Billie! It was a great day all the way around! :)

So did everyone have a great Labor Day weekend? Just think the next Holiday we all celebrate is Thanksgiving and it will be here before know it! Do you remember how so many people just knew that every thing was going to be over when 2000 came? And here we are approaching 13 years later! I'm sure God does a lot of shaking His head and laughing at His people! :)

Don't ever look at someone who is retired or a stay at home Mom and think, "Oh, they have all the time in the world! Wonder what they do all day!" Here it is a little after 3:00 pm and I have been busy all day long and still have a lot to accomplish! So, I'm moving on now! Hehehe!

Ravyna, I am praying for you! The best way I have found to be positive when negativeness tries to come on is to literally write down my blessings! Starts out small and as it grows you will find the slump going, going, gone! As far as the eating goes, don't condemn yourself, just watch your portions more carefully! It actually helps to put your food on a small 'bread' or 'salad' plate! Even with small servings, it looks like a lot and you will find yourself satisfied and full!:)* Now for exercise! In the first place with your knee and back you really shouldn't be exercising any way! Give yourself a chance to heal! Also, you are getting more exercise than you realize, it's just not regimented exercise! You are needed by Carol more during this time than you are needing to exercise, etc! Oh, and God does NOT see you as failing in your humanness! You are believing the lies of satan! Hope this helps you out some! Remember you are loved and prayed for every day! :)

*It's amazing how the mind works! You can take 1/2 or even 1/4 cup of vegetables, etc, and when you put them on a smaller plate you mind says, "WoW that's a lot of food! Stomach you are satisfied!" Try it! It works! hehehe!

Love and Blessings,
~ Judy ~

I want to be positive, but I am struggling.
Carol's troubles has brought me into a negative slump as far as my eating and exercise. I am encouraged in the Lord. God has blessed me, and given me such a great church and the Lord is so wonderful.
But in my humanness, I am failing. God wants my all, and I am not sure how to turn things around.
Lean on Him. Trust Him.
