**Good morning sisters

Annette: of course prayers for your daughter…it's so hard when our kids are involved. Things are good with the boy now…but I don't want school to start again. The very thought of it makes me want to worry. Lord, bless our children…direct them toward You in any and all difficulties…

this verse was in my mind this morn:

For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.
Galatians 5:17

I've been slipping lately with my eating habits. I was at 150 at I can't even say...I know I have to log but my flesh doesn't like that one all boils down to accountability. I want to be free to do whatever my flesh wants...but guess where that gets me???I want to embark on a personal mini challenge here. I want to honestly log (every stinking bite) for the next 7 days. So there, I've said it, I will do it. No matter what my flesh thinks or feels about it!

Have a wonderful day sisters! Lean toward the spirit and not the flesh!****************

Victory = series of right choices....

Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!

God bless you and yours!

Absolutely :thumbu2:

I am not sure what to expect from testing today....daughter had us up until 2am would have been nicer if it wasn't so focused on my daughter's obsession with appearance...need prayers.

Pr. 22:a prudent man sees danger and seeks refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.

Have a wonderful day,

Agreed Kris.

I haven't logged in over a week..... I just haven't wanted to...

I am on a new medication- Cymbalta---the hope is that after my body has weeks to titrate up to a tolerable dose that it will help with energy and lessen pain...
Is this really possible from a pill......the wonders...
I always worry about what bad comes from the changes of hormones from pills....but then I want so much to feel I take them...
I can't seem to change my diet enough to do it by diet alone.
Preparing and eating a full clean anti-inflammatory diet takes a lot of work, a lot of time, and money too really.
I have not the energy nor the money...plenty of time right now...
the worst about that is I LOVE TO COOK....and I am good at it, but just too tiring and exhuasting...
We still eat well, I make sure the kids have clean gluten free, sugar low diets. but I leave myself out too often....I am just too tired.

SO I guess pray for that?????
Pray that God will heal me, or if not help me to find a way to take care of myself and my family...even typing hurts today... my forearms feel so tired and achy. That is just sad.

I don't want to be sad.
...Thank you Lord that I can feel my body, thank you that I am wonderfully and beautifully made (even when I don't feel like it), thank you for my family and all of the many many blessings you send my way..
