My journey is ever on-going. It's always changing and moving and twisting and turning. And I struggle through similar things over and over and then I get new struggles. I know it's all about LEARNING and OVERCOMING.
I have made SO many new friends on this journey of health. Dear Cyber-friends that I get the priveleage to connect with. I can't name them all, but I am thankful to have met Kath, Alaki, Cindy, and Joyce. I feel blessed and grateful to be able to meet and make new friends, even if it is only on-line. :) Each one touches me in a heart-warming way.
Today, I got an email from my wonderful friend Alaki, who shared some insights she's learned and I wanted to share them.
"Ya know I've heard people
say that when you are unhealthy or overweight it makes it difficult to live a
healthy spiritual life. I didn't believe that for such a long time, but
after much trial and tribulation I have finally come to a point where I must
confess that this is SO TRUE! Being healthy is so vital to our spiritual
growth! Being unhealthy as I have learned clouds our true reality and
perspective of life! It has prevent me from becoming my very best
ME! I know I have a long and
difficult road ahead me but it is so worth it!! I am worth it!!"
As I read her words, I couldn't help but feel them myself as I have learned this as well. To say those words to yourself "I am worth it!!" and to truly believe it, is so humbling and amazing and joyful and empowering all at the same time!
Today, I made a video of a song that I've been listening to called "River God". It is sung by Mindy Gledhill. I love the message of this song... it's been powerful in my life. I am like that stone and hoping that through my adversity and trials, one day I can become smoother in God's hands. My beautiful daughter, Jami was kind enough to pose in this video for me.
I hope you enjoy it.
Much love XoxOxo
