All Better

Thanks for the prayers girls....Me and DH are much better and actually got the tree down and put up in the attic. All lights off of the house and wreaths put up. It has been a very interesting week for me and I promise to post about it Tuesday or Wednesday.

My swimming starts tomorrow again and I have so missed the swimming... It does my soul good. I will swim from now till the middle of May at the University and then I hope to open my pool. I am enrolled in two classes each morning, that is from 9-11 I will be in the water........ I have set a goal for my weight loss and this time it is a sensible goal. I have the personality that I over do something or under do it........... sooooooooo I am learning to pace myself and do things energetically combined with wisdom..... that is something new to me.......hahahha I do not know what type personality I am but if there is a "wild thing" type that would be me. Got to slow down this 60 year old body.......... hahahha I have seen God move this week in my life in a most extraordinary way and I need to share....

I am so enjoying my Jewish Old Testament and I hope in the weeks ahead to share some things with you.......

I have made some decisions about some hobbies ...... I have been attempting to quilt by hand and have decided to not do that......... I have three finished that was handed down to me that my grandmother set together. However there are about 12 more that are set together and need to be quilted. OMG.... I will be 99 before I can get those done........hahhaha soooooooooo I am going to get them all ready and have one quilted each month this year and give some of them away.
I learned how to knit when I lived in England so I am going back to knitting and also some crochet. I need to do something in the evening after I read a while.......... I am cutting back on the TV and I want to accomplish some things......... soooooooooooo knit it is....... I will show you some of my work when I get started.

I am also involved in two different bible studies of my own and hope that the Lord brings to life HIS word in my life as never before...........

AND I fixed my blog a bit and made it smaller. I have taught myself HTML over the past couple of months and am having fun with the blog, but as usual I go over board with things, so I am leaving it as it is for a while.......... I want to build one for my sister but I need to wait just a little while first...............

Well I need to get off here and think about getting my suit and swim gear together for tomorrow morning............ Hubby is back to work (he has been off work for 16 days (yeah) but it went by too fast) He goes back in the morning and life goes back into an expected pace.

I want to say this one thing, I want more of God in my life in 2009........ I am hungry....

I am so glad you are feeling better! Your blog looks great. One of my goals for 2009 also is to get even closer with God, among getting active and losing weight. I am trying not to be online as much, and really focus on a better relationship with God. I know that this is an important year. Not sure why i feel that way other then this is the time to fully work on ones spirit. Hugs to you and your family. Your blog looks wonderful! I am hoping also to make mine look as fantastic as yours!

Blessings my blogger friend.

I feel like you & Tracey do, I AM SO THIRSTY & HUNGRY for God here lately, and I too want to spend more time just for him, so I'm going to try and get up a little earlier and read his word and pray before going to work, God is diffidently moving in the world, I can feel it, so many people I've talk to at work have basically said they want a better relationship with our Father too. I'm glad your feeling better too. You have no clue how much I look forward to coming and visiting you!
Love ya so much
Annette

Just wanted to pop by & say hello & happy new year! I hope & pray that 2009 is great for you. I think of you each day when I read my bible -- thanks so much for the bookmark! Sounds like you've got a good plan for the quilting -- hand quilting is so time-consuming. Sounds like your plans for swimming are great too! Sorry you & hubby were sick -- there are alot of people around here getting the flu. Not our family (so far). Hope it stays that way -- the flu bug that is going around sounds like a nasty one this year. ((( hugs ))) D
