    Hey Rico, thanks for the Yoga Mat! I'll fight the urge to just lay on it and visualize! LOL

    emoticon You're such an inspiration to fitness and exercise; you are always preparing for or involved in some sort of competition. Whew! How do you manage to find the time! I'm guessing you are a very disciplined and organized guy!

    I'm none of the above...oh I used to be, but I seemed to have out-grown it. LOL

    Thanks for being you; you're very good at it! emoticon

    HI Ricco Im doing well Im currently in a MMA class at the gym its a mixed martial arts class and it is really challenging me. Its an hour of non stop movement. A lot of the young people who take the class with me cant finish it, its that hard its a lot of push ups and core work then we go into boxing and kicking drills. Im feeling the best I have ever felt in my life.

    I am also training my first male client he is 25yrs old and asked me to train him he wants to build muscle and work on his core so its good practice for me. The Lord is really moving at the gym Im at Ive been doing a lot of witnessing for the Lord. Its amazing these young people dont know anything about Jesus. I can see why the Lord put me there its such an honor to do his work. Many times I dont get my workout in and its so exciting Ricco to see what the Lord is doing in these young people. They have lots of questions and Im so honored to be used by the Lord.

    Im still under doctors care for my diet I have upped my carbs to 60grams a day to keep me out of the danger zone for diabetes. Im working really hard at it. He asked me if I want to go on the medication and I said no, as long as the diet is helping I didnt see a need for it.

    I give the Lord all praise honor and glory Ricco for all he is in my life. Each day I fall madly in love with him not for what he has given or what he is doing in my life but just for his love, patience and grace towards me. He is my everything Im in his word everyday and in prayer and its an honor to be continually in his presence.

    Stay well dear friend much much love to you

    HI Ricco and all I can say is WOW!! You have certainly been through alot and Im so glad you are feeling better and with time as you start feeling better things will get back to normal for you. Stay faithful the Lord sees and knows all you are going through. Hang on to the promises of his word and claim them for your life.

    How great you got a tattoo I have been thinking on getting one myself on my leg I love tattoos my brother has quite a few and he is trying to talk me into it. Anyway I would like to pray for you.

    Heavenly Father
    I lift up my brother Ricco to you in Jesus name and Lord how I thank you for your fatithfulness and love toward us. Calm his fears and comfort him to know he already has the VICTORY!! because of your finished work on the cross. We lift up our hands to you in praise and thanksgiving for all you do for us and for praying for us to the Father. I claim healing and restoration of Riccos health for we know by your stripes we are healed. How we love you Lord let us fall deeply in love with you and remember that it is because of you all blessings flow. In Jesus Name I Pray Amen.

    Love you dear brother take care of yourself and always remember:
