hi christine... i will be praying that you can get back into a good routine and keep it up. great job for losing those pounds! i was doing really great with that spark people as a helper, and then summer got busy and i stopped paying attention to what i was eating and things went down hill from there. in the beginning of july, i had lost almost ten pounds of the 20 i wanted to lose, and now it is all back... sigh! i am not a physical person at all... i would much rather be inside reading or knitting.

as for me... no prayer requests as of now... maybe continued patience with family and life situations?? things have been hard for us the last few months... oh, and a big one just occurred to me: this is the week that i would have been due to have the baby i lost in february. thurs is the day he would have been born, and it is going to make the week all the harder knowing that is coming up. please pray for peace and a good day on thursday? my bff is home from an 18 month missionary stint overseas, and we are going to spend our first full girls day together since she has been home on that day... it will be good, but a sad day too. thanks!!

Hi Christine and Sparrow:


I'm Jill, Chris and I have been married for almost 8 yrs (in Oct). Jacob is 6 and Jonah is 4. I work about 35 hrs/wk in a medical office. It's been a wonderful job for me in that they are totally supportive of me needing time off for school stuff or just letting me bring Jacob to work with me!


We just returned from DH"s grandpa's funeral, which was tough. This was his last grandparent and his mom's last parent. It was harder for him than he thought it would be. Please pray for him and his family.


And I hear ya on needing to get back to healthy eating. I have lost about 30 lbs since Jan and have about 10 to go, but I've been stuck gaining and losing the same 3 or 4 lbs for the past month or so. Frustrating! So we can pray for all of us to stick to healthy eating and exercising :)


Look forward to getting to know you better!

Sorry to hear about your DH grandma--it is always difficult to loose a loved one.

yaay for a healthy baby and good eating today!! that is awesome... i know what you mean about the immunizations. i was also careful about how i immunized bella. there is so much to be afraid of these days. and so much that the doctors say they "know" but they really don't know about the effects of those kinds of things.

if you girls would both be praying, i posted this in the reg prayer section too, but our only car is working on dying as i speak. there is oil in the spark plugs (an issue we have known about, but couldn't afford to fix) and the oil well is completely dry even tho the gauge says it is good. we also need a timing belt badly... the list goes on and on. we tried to go to my inlaws tonight and it was shaking and rattling and stuttering... we have to take it to the shop tomorrow and we really can't afford it. we have been doing so good about not putting things on the credit card, and now we have had to charge both our curriculum and now car repairs. i just feel like we have been being so much wiser and now we are right back in the hole. it almost hurts to know that we are getting further in debt because we can't afford anything we need. i know God is in control.... i know know know know it!!! but it doesn't feel like it right now...

thanks for listening...

Hi all!


Christine, I know what you mean about stressing out! I totally stressed about my kids' shots too. Actually I stressed about EVERYTHING!! I am lucky I did not drive everyone around me crazy. Actually when Jake (my first ) was first born, my ped asked me to stop looking everything up on WebMD :) I was very convinced he had pretty much every bad disease out there. The worst was when they told me he had Fifth's Disease, but didn't give me any more informaiton. I was about in tears til I went home and looked it up on the internet... it's a RASH. geez...


Sparrow-- I'll be praying for you this week. What a tough week for you. I lost a baby in July of last year. Actually for me the hardest week was the week he/she would have been born. The week that it happened I kind of forgot. So it does get better. (((HUGS))) And I will pray for your car and money issues. I know what it's like to deal with that. We are really trying to stay on track w/money. We (and be we I pretty much mean ME) have a good deal of credit card debt. It's pretty much all from when I was in college.... that's so sad. I'm sure I don't even own any of that stuff anymore. I will pray for you guys that the car issues get resolved quickly!


I didn't get in any exercise today either. Today was my day to work til 5 (I'm usually off at 3), so it always feels like such a long day.


Ok... I hear lots of loud noises coming from the bathroom.... and there are two boys in the tub in there... that is never a good combination!! LOL


Have a good night ladies
