Hi y'all, I'm Teresa & I live in Alabama!
I love the Lord with all my heart! 'Nuff Said.
I'm 49, happily married & have 2 teenagers. I joined SPARK on April 8, 2009...I needed a lifestyle change because I had a medical emergency (brain aneursym burst in January 2007) that changed my life. I reached my goal weight on April 12, 2010; I maintained for over year..So I lowered my goal weight AGAIN to 135 Lbs.; I reached that goal on May 27, 2011 on the 2011 Beautiful Butterflies in Spring 5% Challenge. I got sick during May 2012 & lost more weight... June 2012 weight is below my goal weight (135), I now weigh between 121 Lbs. & 123 Lbs.
Well enough about me...Let's talk about you!

♥✞♥ I Am HIS & He Is MINE ♥✞♥

"Who are You, Lord?" He answered me: "I AM."

"But who is I AM?" I asked discouraged.

His soft answer filled my heart with fire, because I heard:
"I AM Love; I AM Peace, I AM Grace,I AM Joy, I AM the Way,
the Truth and the Life, I AM the Light, I AM your comforter, I AM Strength, I AM the Creator, I AM the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End."

With tears in my eyes I asked softly, "But, Lord, then who am I?"

While God gently wiped away my tears, He whispered in my ear: "YOU ARE MINE."

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself.

٭٭Cross On My Homepage٭٭
I have a cross on my homepage
A simple reminder to me
Of the fact that I'm a Christian
No matter where I may be

This little cross is not magic
Nor is it a good luck charm
It isn't meant to protect me
From any physical harm

It's not identification
For all the world to see
It's simply an understanding
Between my Savior and me

When I logon to my homepage
For the new things to see
The cross is there to remind me
The price He paid for me

It reminds me too, to be thankful
For my blessings day by day
And to strive to serve Him better
In all that I do and say

It's also a daily reminder
Of the peace and comfort I share
With all who know my Master
And give themselves to His care

So, I keep a cross on my homepage
Reminding no one but me
That Jesus Christ is Lord of my life
If only I'll let Him be
~~From the Poem by Verna Thomas~~

Live your life in such a way that when
your feet hit the floor in the morning,
Satan shudders & says.....
�OH NO......She's awake!"

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (KJV)
9) And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly
therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power
of Christ may rest upon me.
10) Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches,
in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake:
for when I am weak, then am I strong.

~☆~Don't Quit~☆~
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
when the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
when the funds are low and the debts are high,
and you want to smile but you have to sigh,
when care is pressing you down a bit
rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns.
As everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a fellow turns about
when he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
you may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
it seems to a faint and faltering man;
often the struggler has given up
when he might have captured the victor's cup;
and he learned too late when the night came down,
how close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out
the silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
and when you never can tell how close you are,
it may be near when it seems afar;
so stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
it's when things seem worst, you must not quit.
~~Edgar A. Guest~~

♥ ♥ ♥ * Heart Prints * ♥ ♥ ♥

Whatever our hands touch---
We leave fingerprints!
On walls, on furniture,
On doorknobs, dishes, books,
As we touch we leave our identity.

Oh please where ever I go today,
Help me leave heartprints!
Heartprints of compassion
Of understanding and love.
Heartprints of kindness
and genuine concern.

On Sunday, August 16, 2009, I received an email from SP informing me that I was a SP motivator...I was speechless (yes, I CAN BE QUIET) & of course I cried (& cried & then cried some more). This is such a honor & no words can convey my gratitude to all of you that nominated me. THANK YOU...THANK YOU...THANK YOU

This is what I posted when I started SP.
I haven't taken this off my SparkPage because
I don't ever want to forget all that has been
accomplished since 4-8-09.

In January 2007, I had a brain aneurysm to burst. After the brain surgery & all the medications, I found that I had gained about another 20 lbs. I know that my LORD & SAVIOR poured abundant Mercy, Grace & Love on me to allow me to live. Recovery has been long & hard. Losing weight was the last thing on my mind until I found sparkpeople. I don't want my 15 year old son & 12 year old daughter to grow up without me. Please help me to get healthy & lose this extra weight, so that I can enjoy what my LORD has BLESSED me with....A wonderful, loving husband & 2 precious children.
