This evening I was downstairs in my office, I began singing praises to the Lord. As I was standing there, I looked down and noticed that my feet were slightly pointing a little to the outside. It’s nothing that you would notice at a glance, but I decided to adjust them and point them straight forward . When I did this, my calves hurt. I found it odd, that just by a slight adjustment to the way my feet were pointing, it caused my calves to hurt. As I was thinking about this, I heard the Lord say, “Just as you did not notice that your feet were not perfectly aligned, and you made the adjustment, I am realigning My church. For My church does not recognize that there is adjustments that need to take place in order for them to go in the direction that I Am moving. Even as you began to feel a slight pain as you adjusted your feet, my church will feel as though it is in pain. However, as the realignment happens in the body, the healing will begin to take place causing a new reformation to come forth in this Land.”
“For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems sad and painful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness [right standing with God and a lifestyle and attitude that seeks conformity to God’s will and purpose].”

This morning as I lay in bed trying so hard to go back to sleep, (because I know I need it) all I could feel was the pain in my stomach. All I could see in my mind was a big ball of yarn in multiple colors that was knotted together with no end, and no beginning. These knots represent so many questions that are going through my mind right now. Continue reading
I often do not know how to start out any post I write, and this one is no different. Well, actually, it is different. It is different because it is about my granny. My grandmother, or "granny," as we call her, has been given days to live Continue reading
I originally posted this to my Weight Watchers group, but I decided to go ahead and post it here too. After all, it is about my journey.
I have to admit, this weight loss journey has been a never-ending journey for me. Sometimes I get so mad when I don’t see the results that I want and it makes me want to give up. Why bother, right? Well, guess what? I’m not quitting. I am not a quitter. The number on the scale may not be moving downward, even though I’m steadily tracking now, and trying to be extra careful during this outage (working evenings is hard) I’m not going to give up. I’m old enough to realize now that this particular journey of my life will be an ongoing one and if it takes me more time to get to to the weight I was created to be at, then so be it. I am on a journey and I will see the destination that I going to. I am not defined by a number on the scale and it’s not going to beat me down. I am active and I’m eating better each and every day. I am proud of myself and that’s good enough for me.
Sorry for the long post. No, actually. I’m not. I needed to put this out there.
Tonight my husband and I went out to dinner to Olive Garden. The only problem with this is that he had already eaten dinner earlier while I was visiting family. Of course he didn’t really want to eat anything, so he just got a salad and bread sticks. I told him prior that it makes me feel awkward and I was okay just eating at home, Continue reading
I’m still trying to figure out how to do everything that I feel I need to do, and want to do during this part of my journey in life. Do you ever wonder how everyone seems to have it together, but you? I see people posting on Instagram and Facebook everything they do, and it makes me feel a little frustrated. How do they do it all???? Continue reading
This is day 13th of my 21 Day Sugar Detox.
I have to say that it hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be. During the first few days, I did experience some tiredness and also weakness. I didn’t realize how weak I was feeling until I took my Les Mills Bodypump class. After about 10 minutes, I wanted to just lay down and sleep. My arms felt so weak, and did for a few days after the class. Once I made
some adjustments that are allowed in the program, I started feeling more energy. I am doing level one of the sugar detox with the allowed modifications added on days of my workouts. It’s amazing how adding some sweet potato to your meals and some avocado, give you so much more energy throughout the day! Continue reading
