Random Thoughts about Health and Lent and Love

Hello again my friend.

It’s been awhile.

Not that I haven’t been thinking of you.

I realized tonight that I haven’t blogged in three weeks.

My time has been spent working on the marketing plan for Gabe’s new book coming very soon. Exciting times!

In addition, I have been exercising (a good use of my writing time) and eating healthy too!

The little Mii on my Wii Fit system told me I was a couch potato the other day, but I’m getting better every day.

Even though my blog time has shrunk back, I am pleased to share that I’ve shrunk back my waist line too!

When my Chiropractor reminded me that every pound I gain adds FOUR pounds of pressure to my knee, I hit the START button on my Wii Fit to get the move on.

Yes! I love results! Call me the incredible shrinking woman.

And guess what! My neck and my knee are healing too.


Colossians 2:2-3

2 My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. (NIV)

I took extra time this morning during my Bible reading and journal time.

I’m putting together my plan for my “Lenten Love Letters.”

During the forty days prior to Easter, I ask God every day who might need an encouraging word.

I love it!

Every day two or three people come to mind and I set about touching their life somehow. Maybe it’s an email or a phone call. But my favorite is a hand written note sent US Mail.

Are you in need of a lift? Let me know and I’ll put you on my Lenten Love Letter List!

I’ve got a few more blogs planned in the coming days and weeks.

Be sure to come back and visit.

Leave a comment if you know someone who could use some encouragement and I’ll add them to my Lenten Love Letter List.

God Bless your heart,

    Great idea to send love letters. I’m doing a Bible study throughout Lent: Preparing My Heart for Easter. Fun to do it as an online study at Goodreads.com (Mentoring Moments for Christian Women group).

    I enjoyed your blog and your beautiful Web site.

    Thank you Lydia. A Bible study leading up to Easter also sounds wonderful. I’ll have to check it out. Gigi

    Dearest Gigi,
    I miss you so, when are you and Steve coming back to home fellowship?I iam happy to hear you are doing well, I can relate to the knee issue… I spranged my left knee and ankle in turbulence on November 4 th and it has taken me a while to recover…but the weight loss and working out really helps! I have been doing physical therapy, shots of traumeel and massage, and I’ve lost over 30 pounds to date… 34 more to go. I love your encouraging words and writings, you are a treasure Gigi!
