Monday Praises #23

Boy did I have reason to praise the Lord this morning!!  I stepped on the scale (very much like Lysa describes her scale time… even down to removing the ponytail holder) and got the surprise of my life!!  Drumroll please… I was down 6 pounds!

I was excited.  I was elated!  Then… I was confused

Really?  I had just weighed Friday morning (yes, I am a chronic weigher) and was already 3 pounds down for the month of January.  Could I really be down another 6 pounds in 2 days?!

Then, I saw it… my scale was half on my bathroom rug and half off.  The uneven flooring had skewed the measurement.  I weighed again and was back to my Friday weight.

But, PRAISE THE LORD, that is still 3 pounds down!  I haven’t even gotten started with my exercise regimen!

LOL! My God is an awesome God… and he has a sense of humor, too.  He knows me so well.  Just seeing that number has spurred me on to reach it for real.  And I can! (or at least I better… I pressed the save button before it dawned on me that it might be wrong.  I sure hate to have an erroneous measurement in my scale!!!)  No matter the outcome, I chose to praise the Lord for the good and the bad!  Thank you, Jesus!

For your viewing pleasure… In honor of this journey to crave God, I thought it would be funny to show you some Chonda!  She calls it mushroom top, I call it muffin top.  No matter what you call it, ladies, remember: SAY NO TO THE LOW! lol!!
