Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    Wow, Ramona, 55 pounds, that’s amazing! Congrats on that! I, too, have been trying to lose weight. I lost about 20 pounds last year, but I haven’t been on the scale since the holidays, so I might have gained a few back. I’m devoted to getting healthier, though, so I’ll keep going! As to my word of the year, I have a sad situation in my family right now, that has been going on for about a year. So, I’m considering “Hope” as my word of the year. I haven’t chosen a verse yet. Have a great week!

      Congrats on your weight loss Pam and your commitment to better health – that’s what it’s all about!
      Hope is a wonderful word but I’m sorry about whatever is going on in your family –
      I pray that God continues to watch over you and that the situation resolves itself in the best possible way soon!

  9. Happy Monday. Thanks for hosting.

  10. Happy New Year, Ramona! I hope your year is off to a good start!
    My word for the year is Elevate. For example, I plan to elevate my home by redecorating, elevate how I do certain things etc. As well, I plan to ask myself whether things will elevate my experience – eg. will doing this or that elevate me / my experience?
    Thank you for hosting. Wishing you a wonderful week!
