Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

God DOES work in mysterious ways...

Well, it's Sunday morning of my big FAMILY weekend. I've been surrounded by food for about 52 hours now and I've eaten hardly anything. Why?, you ask? I've been plauged with nausea since I woke up Friday morning. While most people would consider this a negative----I am actually giggling inside thinking "so God, is THIS your way of keeping me on track with my eating?" ha ha ha Whatever, I'll take it. It's been bad enough that when I'm not cooking or cleaning something, I'm laying in bed or on the couch...but not so bad that I've been bent over the toilet puking. I have sat-out from playing a few board games because of it where I'd normally be in the center of action...but with this many people around, I don't think anyone is really missing me. Let's see...we have mom dad me matt brook grant doug pudgy chantel paul teresa jessica kyen sidney kim craig anthony danielle melissa devin rita megan moses miles stephanie cody toni michael alexis---so that's 29 people total!!! 6 short of my 35 estimation--but of course, in my family, we never know for sure who all is coming until they do or don't show up.
Anyway, I just thought while I had a second, I'd let ya'll know that so far-so good on my eating. Guess I better get up from here and get my family ready for church. I don't know what the rest of the crew is going to do today, but I need to get out of this place for a few hours!

I secretly "love" when I get those nausea pangs too b/c in my head I think "great - i can lose some quick pounds here!" sick. i know. But I'm glad that although you're feeling poopy, that at least you're staying on track. Not easy to do with family around, i know :) Keep it up chica! Feel better soon~
