Learning to deal with life's neverending twists and turns.
Wednesday, June 9, 2010
It's been a super busy day, and I still have stuff to do, but I just wanted to come over quickly and report that this morning I weighed in at 136.4 lbs, which is a 0.8 lb loss for the week. I'm happy, because I'd stalled for awhile. I thought for sure I would gain weight after 2 birthday parties this weekend (and you best believe I had cake!) but I kept eating well the rest of the time and it paid off. Praise the Lord for my healthier self!
I'm first and foremost a Bible believing Christian. I'm a mother of 3, learning to deal with the changes God is doing in my life, learning to lean on Him and trust Him even when I don't understand, and learning to accept the changes He sees fit to accomplish His purpose in my life.
"I can't imagine anything more terrible than getting to the end of my life only to discover that God had so much more in mind for me - more freedom, more joy, more peace, more true effectiveness. And I had missed it all, simply because I refused to change." - Joanna Weaver, Having a Mary Spirit.
"In every change He faithful will remain." - Katharina von Schlegel
"Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change things. Outlook determines outcome. If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory." - Warren Wiersbe
