I dedicated my blog, this year, to writing about the challenges that I will face because, as we all know, life is full of challenges!
In honor of Valentines Day, I want to talk about LOVE!
I am challenged everyday, to remember to love.
Love that person who cut me off in traffic.
Love that person who hurt my feelings.
Love that person who I don’t even like as a person.
Here are some Bible verses that I use to help me remember to love one another:
1 John 4:7-8 : Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
John 13:34-35 : A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
1 Peter 4:8 : Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.
Hebrews 13:1 : Let brotherly love continue.
1 Corinthians 16:14 : Let all that you do be done in love.
John 3:16 : For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Happy Valentines Day!

Well, we are on our second week with our personal trainers and our fitness challenge.
It has been a lot of work but we have a great gym and awesome trainers, so we are having fun in the process.
For me, the Capt. and his trainer call me a cheater for 2 reasons.
First of all, I have been doing extra cardio during the day while he is at work. I have either gone into the gym to do a 20 minute interval on the treadmill or I do my 20 minutes of walking/running with Marley around our neighborhood. (Marley can use to lose a few pounds too).
And secondly, I have been wearing a fitness belt when I work out. It goes around my waist and helps to draw the water from my belly.
The Capt. doesn’t like this because he fears that his trainer is going to add more work on him to make up the difference. (LOL)
I don’t feel that this is cheating because the Capt. loses weight so fast, that I am just evening up the playing field.
For the Capt., he has cheated on some meals.
Surprisingly enough, he is doing much better sticking to his meal plan than I thought (but, it is still early in the challenge) and he has only cheated a few times in the past 2 weeks.
As much as I want him to take this seriously, I secretly love it when I find out that he had a moment of weakness and pray for more to come!
