Groan...crack..smack...flop... thud... if you couldn't tell I just did a virtual cartwheel, and it wasn't pretty. Why you ask? I just hit the 30 pound loss mark! Hallelujah. I keep checking to make sure, and yep it's true.
This is something really difficult for me as I have battled weight for years. If not one direction (heavy) then the other (anorexic). I feel good, I'm getting healthier. Who wouldn't with all of the water, fresh veggies, fresh fruit, chicken and turkey that I eat. I can't say I have a ton of energy yet, but I still have thyroid issues. I go back to the doctor soon for that. So, I have to be getting better, it's showing.

I am so relieved that things are once again moving along with the book, and the other writing. I am still not sure who I will get to help me with the final editing, but I am sure God will provide. If anyone has any suggestions I'd be thrilled to hear them. It has been such a long road, but so much has happened, and is continuing. I just need to keep striving for what God has put in my heart, to be obedient to the call, and to make sure that God is the one getting the glory. I am still amazed that this is actually happening, just as the Lord spoke to me 8 years ago. The fact that God can use me to do this is what is most amazing.

Father's Day... I think we are going to the lake, so we can putter around in out little boat, and maybe the boys can ski/wake board. I hope the weather will cooperate. Micah will be coming home Sunday evening, for a very short visit. I'm looking forward to having all my boys home for a couple of days. It should be fun. A little fun in the sun and maybe a picnic. Nothing major, just something Jeff likes to do.

I certainly am writing rather randomly, just jotting down my thoughts. Now you know how it feels to be inside my head... kinda loopy sometimes. Sorry.
I have been reading the usual blogs again, and finally a couple of them have finally updated after a month. It gets kinds tough going there day after day with nothing new. It stifles my creativity. I said to one friend that I feel inspired after I have read all of my usual blogs, and also a few new ones. It seems to hold a sort of general theme at times, and I enjoy seeing that God sometimes speaks the same things to people, just in different ways. Pretty encouraging I'd say. Well the hour is getting late for me almost 10 PM even if the time on the bottom of this post differs. I'm tired, and I need my sleep. I get pretty crabby if I don't get enough. A lot to do tomorrow, so good night.
