Epic fail….boy did I ever miss my target!

  Eleven times!  Thus far this YEAR! That is the actual amount of times I went to the YMCA near my neighborhood.  My goal was 3 times a week starting in January.

If? Not if. Definitely not.

Thought for the day. What would happen if we really believed this? How would our thoughts and actions change? They would change radically!  God is for us. God is for YOU. He is in our corner….our guide, advocate, Father, and  helper. Picture Him with you. Because He is! The more you practice His presence, the more… Continue reading If? Not if.
