“There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer….
No door that enough love will not open
No gulf that enough love will not bridge,
No wall that enough love will not throw down….
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How great the mistake,
Sufficient realization of love will resolve it all.
If only you could love enough,
You would be the happiest and most powerful being in the universe.”

Weightloss Front

Hello Beautiful Beings!

I haven't given a weight-loss update in awhile and figured it was time to do so.  My process has been slow, but consistent.  I hurt my back dancing a month ago, so exercise was very slow.  But, even without strong exercise I have maintained a weight-loss of half a pound per week.  I am happy to say I'll take that loss any day!!

Once a month I do my measurements and for the month of May I lost a total of 7.5 inches!  That all by itself was the best part of my month!  I've been very aware to move my body in whatever safe way I can.  I'm eating lots of lean chicken, fish and loads of veggies. 

I'm noticing curves I had not seen in years! LOL
My body is actually taking on a nice form and I'm extremely grateful.  I have 41 pounds to go to reach my first big goal loss.  I'm okay with taking it slow.  Slow seems to be my best friend these days.  God is truly on my side!

I Refuse to Suffer

In these days we are living so much hurt and despair exist.  The enemy (satan) finds great joy in our pain and misery.  He tells us things to discourage us.  He even convinces us that our fears are valid.  But, I am learning that I am a child of God and I was not created to live in fear.

I find great strength in knowing who my Father is.  I get such great joy in knowing He is my protector.  I have nothing to fear as long as I have Him.  I never have to suffer again as long as I see things for what they truly are.

You are my fortress
my place of safety
you are my God
and I trust you.   --Psalm 91:2 CEV

It's The Climb

April was a deeply hurtful month my friends.  Within that one month I lost three very beautiful beings within my life.  Although I view death in a brand new light these days it still has the power to blindside you from time to time.  A very beautiful blogger named L loss her battle to cancer and my world was shaken by this.  L was a blogger, but more importantly she was a compassionate being.  One of the most compassionate people I've met in a VERY long time.  Throughout her time with cancer L made it her duty to uplift other beings going through any tough situations.  She was a genuine being and I simply adored her and was NOT ready for her to leave.  But, I now know it was her time and she did her job WELL here on earth.  I love L as if I'd known her my entire life and because of all I received from her I will honor her name & mission FOREVER.

The other two losses in April were two of my chemo buddies.  I adopted them both two years ago and weekly I'd write them and send little gifts.  Two little girls who fought with bravery I've never seen before.  My heart breaks for their families, yet I admire their grace to move forward.  It's easy for me to love a being and with that and what God has called me to do I realize there will be many more losses.  I know it won't be easier as time passes, but I will not allow my voice to be silenced for so long again.

I love them all and I will see to it that their love and goodness be known to all I meet.  They touched my heart and for that I am a better person.


If it's true that Love is where you came from and that you gotta love your fellow beings the way you love yourself, it's important that you love yourself; because if you hate yourself, then that means you'll hate your neighbors, too. So it's vitally important that you get to work on loving you. Eventually as you grow in the Love for yourself, you will be more and more full, and be able to share that love with others.
