Getting Back Up

by

I think God created us with natural given passion.  It’s been highly underused in my life and I am tired of living life out of obligation and responsibility. No, I’m not going to go all crazy, but I am determined to make 2009 a different kind of year than 2008 was.  I’m getting started on

All I can say is 🙁 Well *whew* and :(. I’m down 1 from last week at least. Just was hoping that it was some crazy “that time of the month” thing that would disappear this week. I’m down 1. Sort of. Hoping there’s a new challenge coming soon? Read details of my weight loss

Sorry for the poor timing on this one. I have been sick for the past several days. 🙁 And I broke some weight records…in the wrong direction. But, I am going to pick myself up and, like my son, say – “Oh well!” No loss. Much gain. (How many do-overs do we get here?) I’m

Well, I got another flash of revelation from my Heavenly Father this evening. I asked in my last post what all this loitering in my weight meant. God’s letting me see how successful I am when I go it alone. You see, I’m a very, very stubborn girl. I don’t want to be helped. I

Well, that’s not quite the right analogy, but it’s what popped into my head. In my illness and my quiet reflective time, I have learned what it means to be weak. I MUST embrace (or more accurately, fully accept) my weakness. And I must practice being strong with God’s strength. And that means I must
