Joy: My faith increased because I knew God was answering my prayer of, "Lord, please help me. At 61 years old and I need to get this poor body in condition to keep up with my grandsons and enjoy this life you extended for me. Lord, please!" Yolanda telephoned me before I could completely forget about the the dream of my mother calling out to me and my encounter with that mirror. Also, I had forgotten how I called out to God. My goodness! When He answers prayers He answers in Grand Style. WOW! You know, just blogging about this experience is really motivating me, but I still need your encouragement! I want Yolanda to reach her goal so that I can pay it forward. I'll talk about fear next time. My blogs may seem long at first because this whole experience with blogging is a love affair and I really hope it doesn't peter out!
I think these pictures are too cute to keep to myself. Grandsons at six months and three months respectively.
We walked hard and fast this morning trying to get our time down and it is only the third week! The marathon is in September. We are close to 24 minute miles and will go for more on Thursday. Our goal is 15 minute miles. Up at 2 AM rubbing my body down with muscle relaxers. Feeling great because when we started this journey three weeks ago my blood sugar reading levels were anywhere between 140 to 176. This morning my reading level was 116! And my blood pressure as greart!
