Well, it's not exactly a comment about my progress, but about my appearance.
Mark was sharing about a concert he attended and said he was sitting between a big guy like (a tall broad shouldered - rotund man at our table) and a lady who was - pointing at me, he hesitated and then said :"average." I wanted to laugh because I was sure the word he wanted to say was "large" but didn't. However, the man he was talking with instantly piped in with "and beautiful!" Mark didn't even hesitate and said, "She knows she's beautiful." (He turned a little pink as he said it.)
Later when someone took our picture, I mentioned I looked so fat in the picture and Mark said, I didn't and that I "looked perfect" to him.
After telling my neighbor this, she told me there is nothing wrong with the way I look. (Guess 35 lbs into obese is perfect to some....but it still made me feel good.)
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-control.
