    In case you have not read my blog saying so, I want to let you know personally that I am leaving SP at the direction of God's Spirit in me. Not sure what the future holds, but I sense that the time spent here is needed for that work that is coming to me.

    I've been praying about what to leave my friends with as I prepare to leave SP. As I sit here today, knowing that I need to speak with each of you before I go, the thing in my heart is just to tell you like it is. I will miss you here on Spark. Spark is a very uplifting and positive environment, and that is because of friends like you. I will miss you, but I will not forget you. I am printing out my friend list with your pictures / icons and username on it, and I will be praying for you.

    I have put a link to my FaceBook page on my blog for those who would like to stay in touch there, and I reset my privacy settings so you can friend me. Be sure to include your username in a message on the friend add so I will know who you are. Also, if you would like to receive my devotionals and articles, you can send me an email address via my SparkMail and I will add you to my mailing list for Darlene's Ponderings. Whether we meet up on FB or in our futrure I have you in my heart and will continue to hope for your good progress in life.

    Until we meet again,

    Hey, mom!

    Stopping by to check in and see how you are doing and to hopefully encourage your journey. I am focused this month on my way of thinking about food and health issues. Proverbs 23:7 says, "For as he thinks within himself, so he is" (NASB). Our thoughts greatly influence the things we do and I am realizing that I too easily revert back to old habits because I am not convinced in my heart and mind of some changes I need to make. So I am deliberately working to take every thought captive to obedience, recognizing those thought processes and search out new ideology / theology to correct my belief system where health issues are concerned. I pray for you and I today as we work to change from the inside out in ways that make us new creatures through and through.

    BLESSings!

    DON'T QUIT

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
    When the funds are low and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit,
    Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

    Life is queer with its twists and turns,
    As every one of us sometimes learns,
    And many a failure turns about,
    When he might have won had he stuck it out;
    Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
    You may succeed with another blow.

    Often the goal is nearer than,
    It seems to a faint and faltering man,
    Often the struggler has given up,
    When he might have captured the victor's cup,
    And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
    How close he was to the golden crown.

    Success is failure turned inside out--
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
    And you never can tell how close you are,
    It may be near when it seems so far,
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
    It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

    “Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed….” 2 Corinthians 9:6-15

    “Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.” 1 Corinthians 9:26-27

    These two verses found in Scripture have wisdom for us as we press forward to reclaim health. I pray that this wisdom will fill you up and carry you successfully to the goal.

    Stopping by to say "hi" and to see how you are doing. Also wanted to share this word of encouragement I received today:

    The Apostle, Paul, penned the following good advice that is still true today, “Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully” (Holy Bible, 2 Corinthians 9:6, NASB).

    In anything we choose to participate, we will get no more or less from it than we are willing to put into it. That includes our weight loss or healthy living efforts, our Spark experiences, our relationships, etc. The things we value most is what we invest most in. So where is your healthy living falling on the scale of priorities? Your best gauge is found in the effort, study, ingenuity, energy, and time given to it.

    If it is important enough to you, emoticon .

    Cheering you on to victory!
