It's late in the evening and as I'm getting ready for sleep, I'm reflecting on some of the things and people I am grateful to God for. The people I have met here in this community and the warmth & kindness I have experienced is like gold to me. Though I have hit bumps and sometimes boulders on this journey, there are you wonderful people with an encouraging word and support to help me back up. Although my family and friends in my personal life love and support me, they do not quite understand this journey as you do. Since my Mom passed at a young age of 63 in 2005, my eating habits went off the charts. I turned to food for consolation when I should have turned to God. It took me a very long time to get to this point. Even though I still stumble and falter, I know God is there and I'm grateful and all of you are there with your caring and support and inspiring stories and I'm grateful. God Bless you all on your journey!🌺

    Losing your mum at such a young age has deprived you of the future times you wish you had. I'm not surprised you turned to food, as it's extremely comforting when times are bad. Sometimes, we all wish we did things differently, you're moving forward

    What a nice blog Nancy. I feel the same way towards the people here. What a blessing to find so many with like hearts and souls on this journey with us. Until God led me here to SP I felt it was just my own family and loved ones trying to live our lives for God. It was a bit scary to me as I don't want them to be alone in this world even though I know God is always with them so they'll be okay. Still, the journey is so much better with other people who want to please and love God. Now I know God's people are alive and well and they're everywhere and it brings peace and joy to my heart and soul. Thank you Nancy for being such a beam of radiant light for God and thank you to the rest of you also. God bless you all! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
