Also, I suppose this wasn't the best time of year to go on a diet for the first time in my life! I began Weight Watchers two weeks ago. I was 3 pounds away from being considered over weight for my height, and I thought I'd better do something about that. So far I've lost 7 pounds. Eleven more to go! Even though that won't put me at the thinnest I've been as an adult, it will be a happy, healthy medium.
Since Christmas, I've also been uninspired in my relationship with God. This happens to me every year. I think the commercialism of Christmas and the busyness of getting ready for it just really turns me off. I prefer celebrating Easter over Christmas. For whatever reason, the Easter story is more significant to me than the story of Christ's birth. I don't know if that's right or wrong, but it's the way I feel.
Thanks to all of you who have checked in on me during the last 6-8 weeks. Oh, and thank you to those who were praying for me regarding my Christmas solo at church. It went just fine!! I've missed you all and appreciate your kindness! I am still alive but have just been struggling to do it "all" lately. Blessings!
