II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

The Funk

Well, I can't say I'm completely out of "the funk" I've been in here lately...but I can say that I've been quite emotional these past few days (tears) which is at least a little progress over just blank stares at the wall.
My natural instincts want to rant and rave about the Biggest Loser Season Finale I just watched (dvr) but I'm gonna resist. I know a lot of you don't watch it and don't care who won...so I will spare you all the details. I will say, though, that this show has been such an inspiration to me and last nights show really sparked my desire and drive to be the best that I can be (physically). That being said, I am fully aware that the physical aspect of me is only a small part of who I actually am...and it is absolutely second to my spiritual life. Actually, it's more like 4th probably...because God comes first, my hubby second, my kids next, then me (and my body). But I also know that I can do #2 & #3 better when I am taking care of #4. :o)

Anyhow, thank you to all of you for leaving me such encouraging comments! ( and I have to give a special thanks to Tammy & Amy for leaving me hilarious e-mails in my inbox that totally cheered me up). Tammy sent me a YouTube video that I guarantee you 100% that you will smile at. It's humanly impossible not to. http://youtube.com/watch?v=I_mBLWpdwnI
And my friend Amy sent me a copy of an old picture of her and I and some of our friends from when we were in 6th grade. I had the 3 inch high bangs then! It was hilarious!

You know, people who don't use the computer much don't understand the kinds of relationships that can develop online. I've found friendships here that are everybit as meaningful to me as my real-life friendships. And..I've been able to maintain friendships with some of my real-life friends in a way that would have never been possible without the internet. I am so blessed to be surrounded (all over the U.S.) with people who love and care about me. Thank you to every one of you! I seriously think we need to all meet somewhere in the middle sometime! :o)

I'm so glad that you are starting to come out of your funk. I miss my friend...the one who always makes me laugh, and brings a smile to my face every time I read her blog or find a letter in the mail.

Just think we have now been friends for 10 years! I started working at the bank with you in 1998, and that is when we became such good friends! I miss those days! Did you know that is also the year I lost all of my extra fat and went from a 12-13 to a 3? I've kept it off for 10 years, and through 2 pregnancies..It's definitely been a lifestyle change...talk about 10 years of hard workouts! haha :)

Isn't it amazing that even though we no longer work together, we have been able to continue to be such close friends?! I don't' know what I would do without you girlfriend! :) I've been praying for you, for God to guide your steps and to bring you JOY UNSPEAKABLE! :)
