Intention

I had the intention to lose weight….but I didn’t.

I had the intention to visit a lonely neighbor…..but I didn’t.

I had the intention of spending time with God….but I didn’t.

I had the intention of calling a friend…..but I didn’t.

Self absorbsion is such a curse. When one reaches out to others a blessing occurs. Spend time with the Lord and he’ll fill you with joy and give peace to your heart and strength for the day. Then when you decide to lose weight you can do it! And when prompted, you can bless others with a visit. Rise above your own needs and reach out to others. In God’s strength we can be his light in this world.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 NKJV

I am a retired special needs teacher originally from Massachusetts, now residing in Arizona. My husband and I each have three adult children and many grandchildren and some great grandchildren. My passions are singing, single action cowboy shooting, writing and my faith in Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. I have danced and acted, on stage and in competitions, but swim aerobics is the closest I come to dance, at this stage. My husband and I travel back east, every summer, to be with our families. I adore our grandchildren and wish we lived closer to them, year round.
