Day 12 of my altered life

No soda, no sugar, no chocolate, no fried foods, nothing but healthy eating. And loads of water.

Next step is to add walking and exercise. Taking it slow. Living one day hour by hour. But I am feeling so much better.

Maybe simply because I'm making time to do something solely for me. Maybe because I am eating healthy.

Maybe just because it's time.

The power of prayer.....

There is a verse in the Bible that says if you have the faith of a mustard seed, you can move a mountain. I have never doubted that, but I have always realized how tiny and insignificant my faith is as I can't begin to move a mountain.

But I do have faith in the power of prayer. And sometimes it just shocks me. And I don't know why because I continue to keep that verse in the foremost part of my thoughts.

Last night, my cousin and my sister spent the night in the guest bedroom. That meant I slept with my hubby. I think he was quite happy, but I was dreading it because of the flopping, tossing, turning and snoring. I finally went up to bed about midnight and put in my earplugs and just started praying. I prayed for Jehovah to heal this man that I love. I prayed for open passages so he could breathe without snoring. I prayed for calmed nerves so his legs wouldn't jump on the bed. I fell asleep praying....

and I woke up at 5:30 am. Refreshed, rested, ready to go!

I want to work on increasing my faith....I want it to grow from the size of an microscopic amoeba to something greater than that. I don't need to move a mountain, but I do need to have the faith that this will all work out.

Somewhere I have a mustard seed necklace that was my Grandmother's. I need to go find that.
