This is a very inapirational post. It has motivated me in new ways.

The will of God will not take you where the Grace of God cannot protect you.

Give me a sense of humor, Lord,

Give me the grace to see a joke,

To get some humor out of life,

And pass it on to other folk!

This was such an inspirational blog. I know if I hadn't started going to Diet Workshop 28 years ago when I weighed 233 lbs I would probably have gotten to be over 300 pounds. I totally understand what EMMABE1 is talking about. emoticon
