2011 Gratitude Challenge - November 4th




Today is day 4 of the 2011 Gratitude Challenge. I actually wrote up another post and then decided to post it tomorrow instead. Today I want to express my gratitude to the Lord for our family's health.

There are so many problems going around that it is almost unbearable at times. I have so many family members who are suffering from serious health issues.

I have had my fair share of health issues, mostly all related to simply being in bad health.  Thankfully I have not had anything permanent. My children and husband are in good health. For this I am so thankful.

I am also very thankful for the ability to do something about my health problems. I know that if I actually get in shape, my health problems will go away. I am so thankful for the knowledge that I am growing in to treat my family naturally.

God is so good, and He has provided so many things for us to treat ourselves naturally. I am trying to learn how to do this more.

I am so thankful that I can get up and go workout, and help myself. I need to really internalize that more, and realize that I have the option now; I may not have it later. I need to do something about my health.

God is blessing me with the chance to do that, and I haven't been taking it. Well, no longer. I won't waste the time God gave me any longer. And I am going to take better care of my family's health and nutrition from now on. God is so good. Thank you Lord for all of your blessing, large and small. Thank you Lord for the ability to change our health, and to make our lives better. Thank you Lord for the ability to get up and go  and change my health. I am so sorry that I have been wasting that blessing Lord. You are amazing. I ask your forgiveness Lord for ruining my health and not accepting the blessing you have been trying to give me. Please forgive me Lord and see me through this time that it will take to get myself back to the healthy life it should be. You are so good Lord, and I am so grateful for you Lord.

I am off to go and start changing my life. I am going to go workout! lol

Oh sweet Rodna, I hear ya. My sister and mom both had a cancer scare in the last few months. Praise God that neither turned out to have it. God is so good. I too need to get my butt in gear and get in shape. I also need to make my kids eat healthier. Let's do it together.

Great thing to be thankful for, Rodna! I actually had a similar post tonight. I was thankful for my family and our health. And, I need to start working out again. Aiming for Monday morning! :)

Great post! I need to work out more, too! I have been so busy taking care of my kids with appointments and therapy that I tend to neglect myself. I need to get busy taking care of myself, too.

I thought I was following you before, but I guess I wasn't. I am now, though. :-)

and give to those who would not." --Thomas Jefferson
Martin Luther: b. 1483-1546: "I am very much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
