A Walk....

I've been on a BIG weight-loss journey this year.  I started in February with the help of some of my "baseball mamas" when we did a big competition.  I didn't win the competition, but it did serve to kick-off some serious weight loss for me.

My goal is to lose 75 pounds.  Yes.  75.  Well, at least 60.   So far, I'm down about 18 pounds (which is a big deal for me).

To help me lose the weight, when I have the time during the week, I like to try and walk/jog about 10 miles a week.  I'd like to do about 15 per week, but right now my time is so sparse that I'm having trouble finding time to do 5-8 miles a week.   This is also my time to think and pray.

I was on a walk last night and this was my view coming back into my driveway....

Pretty spectacular huh?  I love it.  So calm.  So peaceful.

I NEVER post truly personal things on my blog, but I've been going through a few struggles recently and I was reminded so much of this verse (from New Living Translation) Exodus 14:14 - "The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm."

If this picture doesn't exude calm, I don't know what does.


I'm staying calm.  And He's fighting for me.  I love it.
