At the Cross!

The Cross! I wear one around my neck, I have one tattooed on my arm and I have them all over my home. It is a symbol that reminds me of Freedom, unconditional love, the power of Jesus Christ, that my God is Alive!! Today I sat in my home quietly.  I turned everything off and lit the candles and played this song.  It totally said everything my heart was saying and what I felt.  I felt the Lord so gently calling me to  my knees at the  Cross.  He met me there and I felt God's presence all around me.  While I was there he had my attention and I cried out to him my prayers, my thoughts, my concerns, my fears.  There at the cross I left them.  I know that my God, Jesus Christ is real, and I know that he is alive.  I feel so honored that today he quietly called me to hear him and for him to hear me.  I had so many  other things on my list to do today, but sitting at the cross became my number one thing to do today.  It was amazing and awesome.  I love that I didn't push this time aside and that God met me today in my living room.   If you get a chance stop and listen to this song.  Listen to the words. and listen to God as he gently draws you to him.

This is the cross that hangs from my neck! Thank you Miranda.

Romans 5:6-10 
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him! For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!

Getting back to Working out!

running-feet.jpg Okay so here I am back to running/walking at the gym around the neighborhood, and it feels good.   On the days I don't run to go to a class at the Gym called Body pump.  It's awesome! Its all weight lifting. My days can get very full quite quickly but I realized that I need to make time for myself.  It feels so good to be productive in this way.  Today I enjoyed a run with my sister Beth and the kids and it was awesome to have a partner to keep you pushing on.  It felt so good!! My goal is to lose weight and to tone my body.  I want to feel good and look good. ( I want to look good for the hubs).  So I have  a  goal.  By my Birthday November 28th I want o see  10 pounds gone and be a bit toner! So here we go on a fun journey of a healthier me...
