Happy Anniversary to Me!

Last October, I slowed down, revamped my wellness plan, ONCE AGAIN, and took off on another leg of my journey. The first 20 lbs melted off of me like butter. The next 20 lbs hung around like a migraine, but eventually went away. This last 20 lbs????? It’s like a tick on a dog! I…

Complete Rest Is Complete Faith

I pushed myself a little further and did 3 miles today. While walking and praying, I heard clear as day, “Remember, complete rest is complete faith.” My prayer is for an obedient spirit to enter into complete rest.

New Day, New Mercies

This morning's walk was absolutely awesome! Let me back up a minute. Yesterday, moo came in and told me that he saw the magnolia blossoms on a tree in our neighborhood. We discussed how that tree seemed to be full of blossoms, but the other magnolia trees had not produced as of yet. Ok, back…
