Spark getting a face lift

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Hey I like the changes that showed up on my spark points page recently. Cool beans! It occurs to me that Spark is transforming just like I am :).

I heard some sad news for another counselor acquaintance yesterday. A complaint with the board. I do not wish that on my enemy. So I am lifting her up in prayer today. It causes stress in me because they are scary. This weekend I lifted up fear of such during church service, releasing the spirit of fear of that very thing, asking God to protect me from such and claiming God's control over this. It is kind of shocking to then on Monday hear of yet another having such problems. It did not cause an anxiety or fear in me and for that I give thanks as this has caused increasing anxiety as this seems to be a trend in our area. I can't really talk about this just anywhere because it is a small community I live in so, I am glad I can vent here. Thank you Jesus for covering me and protecting me from such.

I got 10,000 steps yesterday with two shorter walks during the day and general walking. Today I am planning a run. My husband has stuck with his 10,000 step a day goal for about a week now too YEA! and he has lost 14 lbs this month. This is great!!!! He just started gaining again after my surgery and he has just not worked out and made any effort to take it back off. I am very happy to see this effort and that it's paying off.

Looking forward to a long weekend coming up to spend time walking together.

    Praying for your friend- I have been through something very similar and it is very scary even when not warranted.

    I'm not sure that I like the new changes that SP is making, as I don't understand it, at all. And, why are you asking, do I not understand it? Well, I have no speakers yet, as a mouse chewed through my sparker wire, and I'm having a problem getting some new ones.

    I know you don't wish a complaint board hearing on anybody, but sometimes things come to light that weren't known before. Now, please know that I'm not saying your counselor acquaintance, did or didn't do anything in appropriate, but I've been in the situation where I complained BIG TIME, once God answered my prayers of finding someone to give me FAVOR. The NP that was supposedly taking care of me, wasn't! When the OBGYN found out, he had no idea that it was evening happening. This is what the OBGYN's nurse told me. She took to the Dr. everything I had told her on the phone, and she took it back to him and she told me that his mouth literally dropped open and he shook his head in disbelief. He had no idea. Now this is the part I really like. The nurse ask the Dr., didn't you take an oath to do no harm? He confirmed that he had, and then the nurse said, I don't know what kind of oath she took, but she's been causing this lady pain for 5 years! Then the Dr. called me and I had my consult to see a breast surgeon. I did get out from under her really quick, after our last visit, when she treated me so badly, and telling me that I was going to die.

    When you lifted up such a prayer in church today, I believe it was for you, as well as for your counselor acquaintance. God's given you peace to see the situation through, as well, as giving your counselor acquaintance peace also. But, that person may not know that God has given that peace, and will not know to open him/herself open to receive that blessing. If you feel comfortable with it, I suggest you mention to that person, about going before the Lord. You can vent here any time you want, as we're all here for you!

    emoticon 10,000 steps!!! Man that's great that your DH is sticking with his 10,000 steps, too! It's great to have somebody to walk/jog/run with!!! WOW, 14 lbs. in one month!!!

    I highly urge couples to support each other and commit to a healthy lifestyle together! My wife, DSSECRETS, and I have lost a combined 180 together. Our inspiration was easy...our 8 year old granddaughter!
    It's great that your DH has a great streak going.
    In the last four years, I've become physically and mentally fit. I also realized my spirituality needed resurrection. I tried going back to the church after forty years but I didn't need human doctrine. I needed to look at the intrinsic values within! It's all about how you walk the earth and I've become stronger, more positive, and healthier in life!
    Stay strong, focused, and be well!
