Who's Reading?

Wednesday, April 20, 2011


I was truly convicted at my Bible study today.  This post has not been thought out or prayed about or anything.  Straight from the heart while I listen to Henry scream from the couch about being mad at me.  (I won't let him wear his shoes in the house)

Here goes.  Rather than being "disappointed", i should have commended the ones who DID notify me about their pledges!  Rather than ask for more followers, I should have thanked my 18 (now 19!) followers for their loyalty!  I should not expect others to lift ME up, I need to turn to God and the Holy Spirit for this.  I am being conceited, self-centered, absolutely the opposite of the way I need to be acting.

Ephesians 4:29-32
29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

I am going to keep going and stride ahead.  I will let you know there is now $5 per pound being paid to the American Diabetes Association, this does include my own personal pledge of $1 per pound.  I will be redesigning the blog today, and I would love to hear any comments on the changes!  I truly and sincerely thank EVERY single one of my followers and my readers and my occasional "perusers".  I am happy to have this blog as an outlet and a place where I can be open and honest and held accountable for my dieting actions.  I hope this serves as a place where others can come to laugh, maybe cry, maybe learn, maybe agree, maybe disagree. 

Thank you.  If you are reading these words, I appreciate you.  Even if you are reading them in July.  :)



  1. Just so ya know....You have not lost my pledge, I just haven't had time to post you a note. I will still pledge the same, and you can do with it as you see fit, on or off the blog. I believe in you, I still think you are doing a great job.

    How God convicts you to speak or act is your choice in how you share it. I just pray he continues to convict you and speak to you as only He can. It is a learning and growing process, you can never make a choice yesterday with the information you didn't get until today. Keep up the good work, Love!

    Oh, yes, Like the new blog format, too.
