Still Climbing

Hello Friends,
To all my supporters and friends I appreciate your prayers. During the past month I had the flu and a kidney infection that laid me up for a while. I have been well for a couple of weeks but I lost 9 pounds during this month which brings me to a total of 30 pounds in the past two years. Yaaaaaaaay!

Still Walking

It may not seem like much, but I was walking a little every day. Unfortunately shingles have slowed my progress.

Thank God, I was able to walk a half mile yesterday. 

Romans 12: 1-2

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

I am trying to follow this guideline and offer my reasonable service to God.

Climbing in the Fall

Hello Friends, 
I walked a mile yesterday! I had to rest once or twice but there was no shortness of breath, nothing! I lost two pounds this week so I am back on track. God has blessed me in spite of myself. Keep praying for me. I need your help and support.

Still Climbing in the Heat

Hello friends, 
I just wanted to update you on my progress. First, the heat in Texas and across the country is about to get the best of me. I do not function well in 100 degree weather. Will it never end? You will notice the new background on my blog that represents my innermost desire for rain, rain, rain to cool down the place. I am holding my own with my diet. God has blessed me and I have come through a terrible plateau that actually made me gain weight but I managed to hang in there and am back at the eleven pounds weight loss I announced last month. We have had sickness, death in the family, and other serious issues that interfered with my weight program but I overcame. PTL! Keep me in your prayers, friends and supporters. I am doing well and God and YOU are on my side!

Climbing Faster

My husband snapped this image early one morning as I strolled toward the sunrise on a beach in Freeport, Texas. I could not have known that this image would express so many different feelings about my life. I used it on my book cover,  Walk In The Light and have used it many times since it was taken last year. Now I am using it to give a visual expression of the change that has come into my life. I am literally walking away from my old life and a wonderful new beginning is just ahead of me. I have never been so excited in a very long time. Oh yes...I have lost eleven pounds in the past two and a half weeks...and counting! God is truly a miracle worker. I am running towards the future with my torch in my hand! God is great!
