My body the temple

I have realized as I try to get healthy, ahem who am I kidding lose weight, that I don't treat my body like the temple it is.  I criticize it's lack of stamina and flexibility.  I whine because it's not skinny.  I whine about my big butt.  I hate those calloused feet.  I see the scars, and I thank God, and yet I wonder what would have been.  I even wonder if my posts are redundant.
I then look at a well timed card, about faith and a mustard seed, and I can only smile a wry grin of yes, Lord, I believe.

And the apostles said to The Lord, "Increase our faith!"  "If you have faith like a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, "Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you."
Luke 17:5-6
God Bless,

My heart is where you are

When I pray, when I leave my life in His arms, I see life in proper perspective.  I am kind, yet resolute.  I am realistic, yet long for a time filled with idealism.   With God I can be anything!

Happy Memorial Day

Thankful for those who have served and are serving our nation!  God Bless you!

When reality stings

This week has been an interesting one.  I keep deleting posts if enough people don't read them or comment.  I feel lazy, not posting pieces I can feel good about.  I'm wanting instant gratification.  I am wanting to feel good.  Misery loves company...I'm not miserable, I just want things the way I want them.  Control, something I want restrains.  Retraining my brain is a daily exercise.  Thinking for me is not a good thing for me.
Not a proud moment.  Reality doesn't bite, it just stings.
I know it doesn't make sense, but right now I know I just need to write.

One thing

What one thing would you want people to be able to tell about you?
I am running the race Jesus gives me with a glad heart.
God Bless,

Seeing the light

Often in the past I wondered what my life would have looked life if I would have been born with Cerebral Palsy, and these days I can't imagine my life without CP.  I have been taught what it is to live with a joy, a perspective on what compassion can look like.  The why of life is becoming less important.  The way of why I was made this way.  I think I will always wonder, but the pain incurred has lessened.  Putting the pain in words has given me an outet to let it all out.
Coming to terms with the thing I hated the most may be my greatest accomplishment.
God Bless,

Best thing about your mom

There are too many things, but I want to be like her.
The greatest thing she has given me is her love.
Crying tears of thanks that I found a verse of Scripture on Lauren's blog, Sola Scriptura, that is just what I needed today.  Through this blog, God has shown me what it is to believe, and hopefully on the way to faith, a faith that The Lord can be proud of.
In Christ,
God Bless

Praise the Lord

Too often I pray, but I don't PRAISE HIM enough!  I just want to let Jesus know how good He is!

Filled with hope

I am filled with hope because I realize how blessed I am.  I may not have all I want.  I have all I need.  I have a family, where I don't wonder if I'm loved.  I have friends who are just well... Not enough good words.  And as the song goes, "I don't have time to maintain these regrets when I think about how He loves us". Be blessed
