We've had some rainy, rainy weather here in Central Missouri!! And we're expecting more rain today. The temperatures have been pretty mild for this time of year. The grass is just starting to have a hint of green. In Missouri we still have some winter left. We won't be mowing the yard for several more weeks, and the trees won't have leaves for another couple of months. But we are seeing lots of baby calves in the fields and there is definitely the "feel" of spring in the air . . . or at least in my heart!!
I hate to admit it, but over the last year or so I've gotten away from exercise and healthy eating, and I've put on weight. I decided to do something about it so I joined Weight Watchers and I've gotten back to walking 3 miles each day! So far I'm down 5 pounds (25 more to go!) and on Monday I started setting my alarm for 5 a.m. and going to the gym to walk. I had been trying to walk in the evenings, but it seems like there was always some reason I couldn't make it. I am DETERMINED to make my health a priority, so I'm setting that alarm and going to the gym each morning!!! This isn't easy for me as I am NOT a morning person!!! But I know if I want to lose the weight I have to make some changes. I just have to start going to bed a little earlier.
Thanks to everyone who continues to pray for my mom. She is doing well. She continues to gain a little bit of weight each week and she does feel better. We continue to call upon the Lord and trust Him for her complete healing. We are praying for her strength to be renewed and health to be restored, and I will pray that prayer until Jesus heals her or calls her home.
He never changes and He never fails.
This morning on my way to the gym I heard a new song -- at least it was new to me. Turn up your speakers and take a listen - WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS!!!!!
