IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Today I am grateful…

  • that I never really watched The Biggest Loser other than a few minutes here and there, but last night I saw the last three weigh in and the winner determined. He lost 55% of his weight. There is a euphoria to that kind of weight loss. I have had the experience (not that big a percentage, but 70 pounds is significant). It just shows that the seemingly impossible can be a reality.
  • that reality can have a boundary or it can be flexible, it's my perception to which I must pay attention
  • for prayers for all those still on the sinking ship
  • that my ship is in dry dock

We are all seeking something, but many do not know what they want in life. They are seeking something because they are restless and dissatisfied, without realizing that faith in God can give an objective and a purpose for their lives. Many of us are at least subconsciously seeking for a Power greater than ourselves because that would give a meaning to our existence. If you have found that Higher Power, you can be the means of leading others aright, by showing them that their search for a meaning to life will end when they find faith and trust in God as the answer. ~Twenty-Four Hours a Day

It was very inspiring to watch those losers. Especially the woman who couldn't run a mile = and she finished a marathon. Something I still aspire to do.

70 lbs. That is amazing Scott.

Amazingly I do have that strong sense of searching in my life. It was really good to ready that to know others walk the face of the earth feeling exactly the same.
