“IT” all began with Pastor Rick Warren…
WOW!!! I CANNOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP, FOLKS!!! YOU ARE NOT… ABSOLUTELY N-O-T… GONNA BELIEVE IT!!! WE ARE TAKING ANOTHER “JOURNEY”!!! Yep, that’s right. ANOTHER “JOURNEY”!!! TO A HEALTHIER LIFE!!! Come along…
I am so amazed by the connections of positivity that have been falling into place since beginning my, so-called “JOURNEY OF LIFE,” seeking to find my “LOST” self following that car accident in November of 1986. This journey has also been referred to, at some point, as “Looking For Life,” which I now realize has become one and the same as my Journey of Faith, A.K.A.: “MY SPIRITUAL LIFE JOURNEY”. ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.
My thoughts have a tendency to run pretty “DEEP,” as you all know by this time. I am currently feeling excited, yet melancholy about…???…???…??? “EVERYTHING” regarding my “LIFE”. For example, a recent “thought” that’s been tossing itself around inside my brain (like a tossed-salad) :/ (Sorry. I, simply, could NOT stop myself from typing that “nonsense”!!!) is the realization that the paths of my potential destruction had been set in place even PRIOR… to my conception inside my mother’s womb. Now, “THAT”… IS “DEEP”!!! And while “THAT” brings about a certain sadness, I also feel very, Very, VERY blessed to have been given so many opportunities to accept the Grace of God. HE… NEVER GAVE UP ON ME. HE… MADE HIS PRESENCE KNOWN… THROUGHOUT MY LIFE!!! “I”… AM WORTHY. “I”… HAVE A PURPOSE, FOLKS!!! I may struggle for awhile yet in determining the “EXACT” road to take in fulfilling my purpose. I am, however, FINALLY traveling in the “RIGHT” direction!!!
FINALLY… traveling in the “RIGHT” direction!!! WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! Have I mentioned that I recently turned “50”??? I think I have!!! DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WHO-WHOOOOOO!!! “50… AND FABULOUS,” right??? Pppsssttt… “THAT” is what those marvelous B-day cookies said!!! Remember??? The ones that I received as a gift from both sisters, Laura and Lynn. The SAME cookies that were prepared by my cousin, Tina Sallows Keiser, Baked in what had been the kitchen of my beloved Grandma Goble in Fayette, Ohio, which is now the base of Tina’s own business, “SO SWEET, cookies, cake pops and more”. Ya still with me??? Please refer back to those B-day celebration posts dated Oct. 28, Oct. 27, and Oct. 25, 2014. I’m “RAMBLING”… SORRY.
I have recently become involved in another “Journey”, folks. A journey to a Healthier Life. WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!! A “JOURNEY”… to a Healthier “LIFE” on “THIS”… “MY SPIRITUAL LIFE JOURNEY”??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? I AM SERIOUS, folks!!! A friend of mine, Dawn Barbarine, through Bible Study class at the island campus of Anastasia Baptist Church has been on her own, personal journey of Faith. She is, currently, employed as a fitness trainer at the local YMCA and she is just beginning this, her 1st, “THE DANIEL PLAN,” study course.
The Daniel Plan???…???…???… was developed by Rev. Rick Warren to follow as a spiritual guide on the “Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle” which will provide increased energy, mental clarity, confidence, strength, and flexibility. Thereby, allowing Christians to use their God-given talents to fulfill their, God-chosen, PURPOSE. WOW!!! HALLELUJAH!!! COUNT ME IN IT… TO WIN IT!!! AMEN.
Now, I am new to this, “The Daniel Plan”. I JUST finished Chapter #1 before attending our 2nd meeting earlier tonight!!! HA!!! It encompasses “FAITH + FOOD + FITNESS + FOCUS + FRIENDS” through a program designed for the achievement of “a healthier life”. Chapter 1, “How It All Began,” ended with these EXACT words” “WELCOME TO THE JOURNEY”!!! No kidding, folks. Page 29. I CANNOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP!!!
“LIFE… IS A JOURNEY,” folks. Many ups and downs along the way, but I promise: GOD IS GOOD… ALL THE TIME!!! ALL THE TIME… GOD IS GOOD!!! All you REALLY need to do is… ENJOY THE RIDE!!!
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
P.H.P., folks. People Helping People.
Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day.
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.
