That was such a moving video.Thanks for sharing.


Always, Linda

If It's To Be, It's Up To Me.

Philippians 4:12-13
(CEV) I know what it is to be poor or to have plenty, and I have lived under all kinds of conditions. I know what it means to be full or to be hungry, to have too much or too little. Christ gives me the strength to face anything.

1Co 10:31 When you eat or drink or do anything else, always do it to honor God.

AMAZING!!!! they were on oprah a while ago i think ..............


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

I've seen this video before, and it's amazing and sooo inspiring! Those of us who are blessed enough and don't have those issues to deal with just have to get rid of our mental barriers and JUST DO IT! We are ALL capable of accomplishing amazing feats and just have to get into the mindset of 'I CAN DO IT!' Let's go team! WE can ALL get off our butts and make something happen!!! WE CAN DO IT!!!! emoticon emoticon

Passing this along courtesy of MRSHONEYC, from another SparkTeam...some Independence Day inspiration!:

I received this in email. It is a VERY powerful message. You can use this on your teams if you'd like:

This is the most amazing story you will ever be a part of. The next time YOU think that you just CAN’T ___, remember THIS story and attached video.
A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?'
The father who, despite having a heart condition, says 'Yes'.
They went on to complete the marathon together.
Father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying 'Yes' to his son's request of going through the race together.
One day, the son asked his father, 'Dad, let's join the Ironman together.' To which, his father said 'Yes'.
For those who don't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island.
Father and son went on to complete the race together.
Here's video footage of the duo - I hope it touches you like it did me:

Just brought to my attention - more on the background of the father/son duo:
