Amazing to think that each of us was created for a purpose. Makes me stand still. We walk, talk, work, play, live and love our purpose if, that is, we choose to shine the light of Him who knows the purpose He has for us. Purpose has for its synonyms: reason, intention, drive. I began this blog with the thought that to be a part of sparkpeople I need to be deliberate in my participation; I need to consider my whole plan ON PURPOSE. I had a reason for entering into this relationship, I had clear intentions laid out in my objectives, my drive was propelled by my determined resolve. One month later I forgot that my plan wasn't going to just happen when I relaxed into the pattern of the lifestyle that has no purpose. I must exercise ON PURPOSE (it ain't just going to happen with any kind of yipee from me), I must log my meals ON PURPOSE (no way, I consumed all those calories), I must plug into the inspiration and motivation I find in sparkbuddies - past, present, and future ON PURPOSE (my blogs, your blogs and all the wonderful howdies), I must buoy myself up ON PURPOSE (I am all that!) Go ahead, ask me if I did it ON PURPOSE - I hope to answer, "Yep, I did it!"

    Your ON PURPOSE is my EVERYTHING IS DELIBERATE. Same thing and it works well for me. When I cheat my health with bad food, it's as deliberate as eating well. The idea makes me feel I have control of my life.

    I keep in touch with you ON PURPOSE because I think you're an awesome lady and I'm proud to know you! Being intentional is a big deal! I listen to FLR /Family Life Radio with Dr. Randy Carlson.. He has an entire ministry on Intentional Living and it's really cool. Check him out sometime! Doing things on purpose is the way we get things done! Now take that a step further and forgive ON ON PURPOSE and seek to have Him tell you what HIS PURPOSE is in this short time we have to live on the earth.

    You are such a blessing to me!
