Yes! Friday is finally here! Why am I so happy? Cause it's almost Saturday (treat day). When I look at my goals, I think I did push myself and with God's help I reached most of them. It wasn't easy but when you tell your body what to do and how to work, things happen. I am learning that my body can do more than I think it can do. There are possibilities inside just waiting to come out. I also think there are ideas, creativity and dreams that will help so many people. I can't be selfish with these goals. My husband is getting a better wife when I reach my goal. He gets a stronger, healthier wife. A person who is free from being dominated by her circumstances, but someone who is an overcomer in all she does. I'm not under the circumnstances, I have control over my health and strength. Why do we think of ourselves as victims all the time? There is power inside of us. God has given us so much power and there will be a day when we will use it. It's up to us tough.I have my thinking cap on today and it's okay. This journey is more than letting you know what I've done. It's about realizing how much God has given me and hopefully you will realize you have a great set of strengths given to you. You have a measure of faith. Use it! Have an awesome weekend. When you face all that food at the table in the party you are attending, remember, I am in control. I can do all things through Christ.
