IMPORTANT THINGS

Tonight as I sit here at the computer, weight loss seems so unimportant. I watched today as they lowered my sister in law down in the grave that had been dug for her. I know that our relationship with Jesus Christ is the most important thing. I pray that each of you have made that right with God.

Yet, it is through things like looking to the Lord for help with the problems and weaknesses that we have in life that show us just what the Lord is willing to do to help us because He loves us. He is there for us even in this. We can be so thankful that He feels the feelings that we have during these times. He will help us if we will just ask. He is our Father and He wants us to ask Him for his help. Let us make it more of an important thing this year to ask God when we need His help even in this area of our life. He will, I know He will.

I have missed coming to this place to visit with you , my friends but I thank you for the many prayers you have prayed for us these last few weeks. Thank you so much. connie

You have been on my heart...on my mind and in my prayers Sister!! I do know that weight-loss is not what is most important. Although I tend to put too much emphasis on it at times. Thank you for this reminder to me!! I'm so thankful that I have the Lord of Lords in my heart and life and that He is all that matters. I only desire to glorify Him in my life AND in my body. I pray I can continue to do that with His help. I sure can't do it on my own!!

Love you!!

Sis. Julie, you are so right and isn't is wonderful that we have this great Saviour that cares about even our seemingly unimportant matters. If they are important in any way to us so they are to Him. I am so thankful that we have a Saviour we can go to for anything. I, too, want to glorify Him with my body and that is one of the main reasons I want to get it back as much as I can as He meant it to be.

I have appreciated you visiting me here so we can be an encouragement to each other as we fight this battle together and it is a battle just like any other and one that God has given us friends to help and encourage us with. I am so thankful for you and all that you do for me. Please God, I want to be a blessing to Sis. Julie and please bless her .connie
