Subject: FW: THE ANT AND CONTACT LENS

Wow! This is incredible!! Remember this when things get tough!!!


The Ant and the Contact Lens: A TRUE STORY




Brenda was almost halfway to the top of the tremendous granite cliff. She was standing on a ledge where she was taking a breather during this, her first rock climb. As she rested there, the safety rope snapped against her eye and knocked out her contact lens.

'Great', she thought. 'Here I am on a rock ledge, hundreds of feet from the bottom and hundreds of feet to the top of this cliff, and now my sight is blurry.' She looked and looked, hoping that somehow it had landed on the ledge. But it just wasn't there.

She felt the panic rising in her, so she began praying. She prayed for calm, and she prayed that she might find her contact lens. When she got to the top, a friend examined her eye and her clothing for the lens, but it was not to be found. Although she was calm now that she was at the top, she was saddened because she could not clearly see across the range of mountains. She thought of the bible verse 'The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth.'

She thought, 'Lord, You can see all these mountains. You know every stone and leaf, and You know exactly where my contact lens is. Please help me.'

Later, when they had hiked down the trail to the bottom of the cliff they met another party of climbers just starting up the face of the cliff. One of them shouted out, 'Hey, you guys! Anybody lose a contact lens?'

Well, that would be startling enough, but you know why the climber saw it? An ant was moving slowly across a twig on the face of the rock, carrying it!

The story doesn't end there. Brenda's father is a cartoonist. When she told him the incredible story of the ant, the prayer, and the contact lens, he drew a cartoon of an ant lugging that contact lens with the caption, 'Lord, I don't know why You want me to carry this thing. I can't eat it, and it's awfully heavy. But if this is what You want me to do, I'll carry it for You.'

I think it would do all of us some good to say, 'God, I don't know why You want me to carry this load. I can see no good in it and it's awfully heavy. But, if You want me to carry it, I will.'

God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called.
Yes, I do love GOD. He is my source of existence and my Savior. He keeps me functioning each and every day. Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him...I can do all things.

Romans 10:9-10 ... if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved...

Today's one of those emotionally overwhelmed (mainly from exhaustion) days that would normally send me running for the ice cream. I'll have a health shake instead,and just rest, and know that it will pass.

MERCY: God is not giving me what I deserve, ie. judgement.

GRACE: God gives me what I don't deserve, ie. mercy, blessings,

I knew what MERCY was but I couldn't quite understand what GRACE was until I heard a preacher say this yesterday.

Of course this is a simple explanation of an important subject but I thought it was a good starting place to understanding it better and I wanted to share it with your all.

Love in Christ,
Kathy

I went to a Ladies Retreat also the weekend of May 13-15 and was blessed! Also ate lots of good food in Amish country, Shipshewana, Indiana.

Now I'm trying to get back on track and lose the weight I've gained back the last couple of months.

Hope someone out there is having a nice, sunny day.

I have made some good choices recently. Friday night my husband took me out to the Der Dutchman in Plain City and he ordered the buffet and I so wanted to say yes but I did not I sat and ordered off the menu. Big step number one. Then I ordered a sirloin and only ordered the 5 oz instead of the 10 (which was only a dollar more) and then I stopped eating when I was full. Big step number 2. My student is running track (I am an Interpreter for the Deaf) and so McDonalds is next door. I packed snacks to have while I was waiting for track to start.



Just changed my name. I was cbussey.

I lost .4 as of this morning. Looks like another turtle lol. I didn't do so well with eating and skipped 2 workouts this week. Oh and my hubby and I had the best dinner last night. He made steak AND fresh lobster! We picked them out of the tank and everything! We had a baked potato and salad with it.

I had the most amazing time yesterday. I have had a real strugle lately. I have been looking at circumstances vs Jesus. God and I had a long talk and He has forgivne me and then I went back to looking down again instead of up. Well, our church is involved with another church and I felt God really telling me that I need to go to this other church yesterday. Well, I obeyed and it was great. The Holy Spirit showed up and showed out.

Just changed my name. I was cbussey.

Good afternoon, and happy February. One month closer to Spring, and believe me, we are more than anxious for spring here in central Indiana.

Hope everyone is doing well and keeping on track.

I went out twice to eat for my birthday this past week and still managed to lose 2 pounds. I am so happy about that. emoticon

Good morning team!

Hope you all are having a good day in the Lord.

I lost one pound this week. I sure didn't eat much all week because of being sick, and not having much of any appetite, so seems like I should have lost more. It surely must be true that your metabolism slows way down when you don't eat enough.

But I'll take that pound. I am starting to tell a little difference in the way my clothes fit, and it has been a LONG time since that has happened.

I am already 3 pounds under my lowest weight in 2010, and it's still January!

How many of you are still motivated and determined to lose weight this year?

I've lost weight more times than I can even count going to TOPS.

I'm still don't have my appetite back which is very unusual for me! Nothing much even sounds good. Now if I could just stay this way for 6 months or so.

It does look good to see those lower numbers on the scale, no matter how it happened. I already weigh less than I did in all of 2010.

So let's take this weight loss due to illness and let that be our jumpstart to losing steadily throughout this year.

I'm a former TOPS member. I actually lost weight twice in my life with TOPS. It's a great program and keeps you accountable. I was also sick over the last few days and lost some unexpected weight also. Not the best way to lose..but hey I'll take it;)

Hi team!

Looks like I'm going to have another good loss at TOPS tonight, because I got sick on Saturday, and I've lost 4 1/2 pounds since then!

Hope all of you are doing well. How are your weight loss efforts going so far this year?

Good morning everyone! Hope all of you are doing well and staying committed to losing weight.

I made a big commitment last night and rejoined TOPS. The only way I ever stay on a diet for the long term is to attend meetings and weigh in every week.

Anyone else here a TOPS member or former TOPS member?

Happy New Year to you all!

Welcome to all the new members, I've been getting several emails saying "Spirit Filled Sparkers has a new member!"

I started this new year weighing just a little less than I did this time last year. Not much of a success story, but I am ready to try, try again.

I just read this today, and how appropriate it is for me and my dieting efforts:

"Oh, God of Second Chances
and New Beginnings,

Here I am again."

Well, I weighed in this morning, and didn't lose anything...but didn't gain either. I'll take that after Thanksgiving!

Hope you all have a great week.

Have a blessed Sunday everyone.

I have one more day to try to get the weight off that I gained over the Thanksgiving. I weigh in on Mondays. Just here at home, but I still try to faithfully weigh in every week and keep track of my progress, or lack thereof, as the case may be tomorrow.

Obviously, I didn't stick to my moderate eating plan as well as I would have liked! emoticon

Thanks, Donna! My weight loss graph shows a loss of only 8 pounds though, because I gained 3 pounds before I lost the 11! emoticon

Hope everyone has a lovely Thanksgiving Day. I am counting my blessings.

I made a cheesecake with the neufchatel cheese. I have a can of regular cherry pie filling and sugar free, and will let everyone choose their topping. I am probably the only one that will use the sugar free, but that saves so many calories.

My plan is to eat a little of the things I like most, but try not to overindulge. I'm not going to be a food martyr on Thanksgiving though!

Hi team!

I was so pleased to have found this particular team, but there doesn't appear to be much activity here.

Hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, and every day.

I have been dieting for 4 weeks as of yesterday! That is good for me, as I've not been consistent in eating right for some time. Got on the scales yesterday and saw a loss of 2 1/2 pounds; 11 pounds in 4 weeks! Boy! Was that ever motivating.

How are the rest of you doing? I know this week will be hard with "feast day" coming up. I am going to enjoy the day, but try to eat in moderation. Hey, turkey is lean and healthy, right? And pumpkin is so good for you. :)

Hi team members. Sorry I've been missing in action for awhile. I fell off the wagon, AGAIN!

This time, I've been on track for 3 weeks, so I'm on my way again! I have been so inconsistent the past few years.

But this time, I hope it will be different. I am feeling encouraged about eating healthy, and have been able to practice moderation in some instances.

It's easy for me to stay in control when I microwave a frozen diet dinner, but moderation has to come into play when I'm eating out or at a party or those other times when "real" food is involved.

Self control is such a necessary fruit of the Spirit, isn't it? Yet so hard to maintain at times, not just in eating, but in so many areas of my life.

Bummer, I haven't gotten my spark notices for a few days now. I injured my foot but it's feeling much better and I have this weekend off so can't wait to spend more time on the lakeshore. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I hate to admit it Cindy, but the only way I ever eat avocado is when it's all smashed up in guacamole dip.

But if you say it's almost as good as bacon, I may have to give it a try. I can't imagine a green vegetable on a par with bacon, but if you say so. emoticon

The weekend was much cooler here, but it's hot today. Not unbearable in the shade though. I went outside with the kids for a while.

I broke down and bought some tomatoes from a produce stand today, since I haven't been able to mooch any free ones yet. Had tomato on whole wheat toast spread with light miracle whip for lunch. Yum! Kind of like a BLT without the B or L. emoticon
