Hello friends! Thanks to another round of the stomach flu in our home, I am back down my five pounds! As miserable as I was when puking my guts up on Sunday, I found it gave me time to read my Bible and pray. I don't know for sure, but I think God used this time to "re-start" me! I was telling my friend Margery that after this bout with the flu, God truly did "empty" me! Also, I as I stated last week, my walk with Him hasn't been as close. I still do my devotions everyday, but not like I used to - in the early morning hours while the house is asleep. There is something magical about that time and though I have continued to read my Bible and read my devotions and pray, when I do it with two small boys clanking around the house, my focus isn't COMPLETELY on Him. I was able to have that quiet time as I moaned and groaned in bed on Sunday with the flu. (You know how you feel....you want to die, but unfortunately you know you're going to survive it?) Yesterday, I was able to continue to find that "empty" feeling before eating. This morning I was able to have that time with God uninterrupted before the house woke up. Oh, I'm a slow learner, but at least I am still learning! I'm sticking with my Jeremiah verse again this week....it is so uplifting and encouraging. God wants me (and you) to succeed!
Have a great week!
