Happy New Year!
Every day in the LORD is a chance for a new beginning, but there is something so uplifting about the start of a new year with a new calendar and a new opportunity to go at life with a fresh start. Some call it a clean slate!
I just realized that this is the start of the second calendar year for me to be sugar free!!! I have gone 1 year and 177 days without sugar, msg and other processed foods. That is 542 days!
God has been faithful and gifted me with friends who have helped and as a result, I am much more confident in my cooking and eating this way than I was a year ago.
Thank you to all of you who have tried my recipes and helped me tweak them. Thank you to all of you who have cheered me on.
I haven’t mastered this new lifestyle yet, but I am sooooo much better at it now than a year ago.
I praise God for the great success and the improvement in my health. I could not have done it without His gift of conviction and His power and strength.
Many times I have had to stand alone, but He has always been with me, even when I felt out of place among family and friends.
I am so thankful that He opened my eyes to the reality that my body is the TEMPLE of the HOLY SPIRIT and convicted me that I should eat with purpose for His glory!
I ended the year 2011 better at all this than I started it. I have a better start on 2012 than I had in 2011 and I will end this year better and stronger than I am starting. By God’s grace, I will continue to grow in Him, as I learn new ways to eat and live for His glory.
Thank you, my friends, for joining me in this adventure of a lifetime!
We CAN do ALL things through CHRIST who strengthens us! Yes, even give up sugar and other unhealthy foods and habits!
God bless you with His presence and power in 2012!
