A NEW DAY, A NEW TIME TO TRY

I have not been eating right at the right times or the right things for me. Result: a gain in weight. I have lost ground but not my determination to do what is right. There are many things involved in this and I know that I have not done the best I could have done so in that I have been wrong and have to get up and try again and do it right this time. I know that I have not lost the battle unless I quit trying and so I have not lost. I have to regain some ground that I have given to the enemy but I will just have to pray that if it was not my fault that it will come off as easy as it went on and because I didnot do my best and I have to pay the price then I pray that I will not compound the problem and get discouraged. I will not do that. So, here I am off to another week of trying to do it the right way. I have been trying some different things but for me they will not work so, I have to go back to the things that was working. This should be the last week that we have Doctors appointments for Jim. God has been so good to us and things are going so very well in that area. He hasn't hurt in over a week. I have not forgotten you all, I have just been too busy to post or to visit. I am still praying for you and I hope you are praying for me. Looking forward to the day when we can all say that we have met our goal . Have a good week. connie

Connie,
I'm so glad to hear that your dear Jim is feeling better. Boy sickness puts a damper on everything huh?

Hey don't worry about the gain. You have time to get it off, it's not a marathon. °Ü°

Remember a righteous man falls 7 times and riseth up again!

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Dear Tori, yes, sickness changes things from normal to instability, which is not always good for me. I like knowing what is coming next. The Lord has taught me much during these times though. I am so thankful that Jim is doing so well. Hopefully he will be better than ever in a few weeks. We have an anniversary coming up on March 18th, our 46th and we are looking so forward to celebrating all these wonderful years the Lord has given us together.

The gain was disappointing but I know that is not a reasonable attitude. The gains will come from time to time just to let me remember to be thankful for the times the Lord gives me victory and to cause me to remember that this
"thorn in my flesh" will be something that I will have to live with for the rest of my life. love you, Tori and thanks, connie
