1. Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog the other day. Your words mean so much. As you know, God is getting deeply personal with me as well. It seems this many times involves tears, but they are usually therapeutic tears. I'll be praying for you tonight my friend. Thanks for being real enough to write the truth.

  2. It sounds like you are going to the right shoulder to cry on and the right ear for listening. He hears your heart, and He will respond perfectly.

  3. I am not linking up (will next time mmkay?) as I am not gonna blog on the weekends anymore, BUT i will read and comment on the weekends MWHOHAHAHAHA!

    -Cough- ok… So God tells me: I didn't give you someone close (geologically in the same town) because I wanted to give you someone close in heart.
    I am sure I heard him say stop moping but lol was probably just me!!

    @->– that's a flower for you and you know why

  4. You know, I believe God is always speaking. It is we who don't take the time to listen. God is the only One I know of who can speak profoundly even when it seems He is saying nothing! What a privilege that we can pour our hearts out to Him with groanings that cannot be uttered, and He understands us in the deepest places. Some things are just meant to be personal between us and Him.

  5. Wouldn't you know God would get deeply personal when you decide to share it all with the world for 30 days!! I'm sure that from the tears and conversation some blog appropriate material will soon surface. He doesn't change us to keep it personal… He wants to use you to encourage the world.

    PS you rock, I'm still extracting nuggets of wisdom from our convo last week. That's it. You just rock. Thank you for sharing your life with me.

  6. God is speaking to me by telling me that first thing in the morning before exercise or being on the computer to spend time with Him. I love your blog and used your Fitness Friday idea to start journaling my exercise. I have a question. Is working with a stability bail considered strength training? I'm not using weights while I use the ball.

  7. Rebecca,

    In answer to your question about using the stability ball, YES, that is considered strength training. Using a stability ball forces your body to remain stable and balanced. This takes a lot of core muscle strength. So, basically, while you are on the ball, you are working your core (abs and back, mostly).

    There are also ways to work your legs and arms with stability balls. You could do squats up against a wall or do push-ups on the ball. All of those use the weight of your body as well as the core work-out because of the ball.

    Does that make sense?
