"Lord, may the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer."

A poem from Ralph Waldo Emerson:

"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."

"I choose...to live by choice, not by chance. To make changes, not excuses. To be motivated, not manipulated. To be useful, not used. To excel, not compete. I choose self-esteem, not self-pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinions of others."~unknown


Below is a quote from Charles Haddon Spurgeon -

"Fits of depression come over most of us.
Usually cheerful as we may be, we must at intervals be cast down.
the strong are not always vigorous,
the wise not always ready,
the brave not always courageous,
and the joyous not always happy.
There may be here and there men of iron...
but surely the rust frets even these."

GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU

Be not dismayed whate'er betide,
Beneath His wings of love abide,
God will take care of you,
Through every day, o'er all the way,
He will take care of you,
God will take care of you. -Civilla D. Martin

ALL THINGS ARE NEW!!! New Goals 2018

What do I want to accomplish? I want to lose 25 pounds by the fall.

When do I want to accomplish it? I want to accomplish this in 6 months so I want to reach my goal by Oct 2018.

How will I know I've accomplished it? I will wear two sizes smaller in jeans and dresses. BP will be much lower. Better muscles.

Is it realistic and challenging? It is realistic as it means losing 7# per month.
I will accomplish it with a healthy eating program and 30 minutes exercise each day using poles for walking and waterwalking, drinking 8 glasses water daily, sleeping 7-8 hours nightly.
One day is a free day.


DISCIPLINE~WILLPOWER~DETERMINATION~NEVER NO NEVER BE A SLAVE TO ANYTHING~~~~EARTHLY!!




ISAIAH 43:16A,18-19

"This is what the LORD says_
Forget the former things;
Do not dwell on the past.

See I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up,
Do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the desert
And streams in the wasteland."
