Sixty Day Plan

My Sixty Day Plan is to do what is best for me.
For my mind, body and soul.

There will be no pressure, in fact the emphisis will be on pleasure.
I will free my mind from the dark place it has resided in for the past few week. The way I will do this is to learn to meditate on JOY.  Enjoying simple pleasure's of music, reading, sleeping, creating and just being me.

I will free my body from the heavy, uncomfortable prison it has resided in for months.  The way I will do this is to learn to focus on what you put into the body, the body becomes.  I need a happy, wholesome painfree body. I am going to get it. Eating simply, walking daily, exercising slowly.

I will free my soul from the suffering of the past weeks and months.  The way I will do this is to surrender to the Good Lord. I have been fighting Him for a long time now, feeling unworthy and wretched. I will learn to pray with reverence, to meditate on the mystery of Christ. I will read, listen and learn and come to know I am a child of God and He does love me.

Each sixth day I will blog about how my plan is going.  This will be to enable me to glean the positives from the plan and cast away any negatives that show their ugly faces.

By the end of sixty days, I plan to be stronger, happier and living in the JOY that I deserve.

Thank you for reading.

Sheilagh, This sounds like an exceptional plan!

And, yes, Jesus loves you very much--and wants you to rest in that. He does.

Let joy arise, dear friend, let joy arise.

I have a song for you...I think I'm going to sing it, have my son video it, and then post it for you. If not, I'll send you a link to someone else singing it. It's for you, right now, I'm sure of it!!!

I'm with you all the way Sheilagh!! I know where I get my strength and purpose from. Without the gospel in my life, I don't know where I'd be. It is so freeing to know exactly who I am and why I am here, and where I am headed. ((((hugs))))
