Welcome to my Spark Page!
Beginning today I will no longer worry about yesterday. It is in the past and the past will never change. Only I can change by choosing to do so.
I am Nora (not my real name) my spark buddies gave me that name and I have grown to love it. I am tired of being fluffy (my church sisters
don't say fat) and unhealthy. I have been battling with my weight for six looooong years.....that is how it seems. I would lose the weight and gain it all back. Three years ago I was diagnosed with diabetes then my BP went sky high and my thing after another, not forgetting menopause. Negative thoughts started to creep in and I began to judge and condemn myself. When I looked into the mirror I was seeing a body I didn't recognise. I panic! A person always in I was slipping, losing control and hating myself
I sought help but all I received was discouragement, I was a failure!!
FAILURE- NO - it is just a temporary set back, a delay, it is not DEFEAT
not a dead end. It was then I became determined to get this under control before it killed me. I didn't know how I was going to achieve this but I certainly know that there is a way to achieve anything I set my mind to. If I don't find a way...I'll create it. I wanted to live and maintain this sacred body God gave to me. I prayed! Then i found S/P Site by accident. Boy! Am I glad I stopped to investigate this wonderful site. Never thought I would be a part f something like this. I thought...Life doesn't provide warranties and guarantees. It just provides, opportunities and possibilities. Grab it! You won't lose anything. it's free! Prayers answered!! Yes. The Lord didn't only give me what I asked for but also the opportunity of meeting people who were of like mind and situations and there is also a Christian Team. Great!
Here I found a place to maintain consistent vigil for new and powerful ways to change the shape of my body while promoting life long health
and wellness.
Beginning today I will no longer worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will always be there, waiting for me to make the most of it. But I cannot make the most of tomorrow without first making the most of today!!!

    Dropping by to say hi and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving, hope you enjoy your day and the following poem. God's Blessings emoticon

    Thankful for Each Other

    Dear Lord,
    As we gather together around this table
    laden with your plentiful gifts to us,
    we thank You for always providing
    what we really need
    and for sometimes granting wishes
    for things we don’t really need.
    Today, let us be especially thankful
    for each other--for family and friends
    who enrich our lives in wonderful ways,
    even when they present us with challenges.
    Let us join together now
    in peaceful, loving fellowship
    to celebrate Your love for us
    and our love for each other. Amen.

    Do you celebrate Thanksgiving?

    A Thanksgiving Poem

    May your stuffing be tasty
    May your turkey be plump
    May your potatoes and gravy
    have nary a lump
    May your yams be delicious
    and your pies take the prize
    and may your
    thanksgiving dinner
    stay off your thighs!!!
