Blog Hop

This last Sunday I had the privilege of hearing my older brother speak in church for the first time. He spoke about having Peace in the Midst of the Storm. The scripture foundation was found in Mark 4. How the disciples were fishing and the storms came frightening them. Jesus then spoke to the storm saying "Peace, Be Still".( Mark 4:39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.) My brother related this to trials in our life.. how God will give us Peace that passeth even our understanding.. if we let Him. Even when things seem so difficult, God can give us Peace! I was so encouraged!STOP

Great topic for a talk in church! It's good to be reminded we need to rely on the Lord for peace!

Have a great weekend.

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
