Must See

This movie was amazing. We have been waiting for it to come out for months. It did not disappoint. So, if you have some time this week go see it. It proves what a little potential and someone believing in you can do!!

Please pray for my hubby's family. His Uncle Rodney passed away this Friday and he was only 56. He and his wife have been sweethearts since high school. We are also worried about my father in law because it was his baby brother and my father in law suffers from Alzheimer's. He is in Kentucky so the trip alone will be hard for him to make.
It made me just get up even earlier to work out today!
Thank you for your prayers.

Isaiah 40:31
31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,they will walk and not be faint.

Aren't these words amazing? Written so long ago but bring such hope and encouragement today.
I am attacking my weight loss journey with God's encouragement and these words just speak to me about what I can do. I was an athlete growing up and very active. Like so many women I made everything else a priority and gave into stress and let food comfort me. No longer. So this blog may take a new direction and I may use it as a tool to monitor my weight loss progress. I'm sharing my story to say it out loud that I want to lose this weight!! Please pray for my journey.

I'm Back!!

I am home and I feel great. I worked out everyday, ate well, rested, no stress it was truly a retreat. Here are a few pictures of my trip.

Word to cling to
Behold I am doing a new thing. Can you not perceive it? Isaiah 43:19

Blessings, Thoughts and Stuff

So I have been blessed with feeling much better and have been working a lot!! I recently was able to meet a wonderful friend for breakfast and it was so nice to visit and catch up. I miss that. I also got to see my dear friend Michal. You all have been praying for her to win her battle with cancer. It was so great to see her , man she looked so good. But looks can deceive us. Time going by can too. Talking to her I realized that I had put her on a back burner, because treatments where going okay and things seemed to be moving as they should be. Can I just say that people do what they have to do. She shared with me how scared she is and prays that she hasn't had her last camp out or made her last smore. She awakes at night frightened. Her children are frightened and don't like leaving her side. Can you join me in not just praying for her recovery but for her to have some peace.
I also found out my dear friend Carrie that lost her young husband this summer is finally hit the grieving process and is struggling. Her sweet 4 yr old cries for his daddy and misses he desperately. The holidays are ahead and that is a lot of firsts without him. So can she make a way into your prayers too.
I am going on a little trip. After being so sick and having a good check up with my Dr, she is recommending some Tina time for me. I am not good at this at all and I am struggling leaving my family but I need to make myself a priority !! So I will hopefully come back renewed and rested and ready to focus on my personal goals. Please pray for my journey.

Our sweet girl was blessed with a wonderful job. She had been praying that something would come her way and the Lord showed up with an amazing opportunity. The biology geek got the photographer job for school. Those are her words. He is such a giving God and she knows it truly came from him!!

I do hope your lives are full of great stuff and you feel God's presence.
