Independence Day!

As we here in America celebrate our Independence we are reminded that Independence usually comes after a fierce battle with what sometimes seems to be insurmountable odds! Those of us that are Christians understand that our liberty from sin and it's dominion came as a result of a fierce battle and the Ultimate Sacrifice of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Those of us on Spark People dot com know that our Independence from our previous unhealthy lifestyles also requires a fierce battle and sacrifice! But on days like today we are reminded that the battle and sacrifice IS WORTH IT!

I pray that you continue to find the grace and fortitude necessary to win your personal independence from destructive habits and lifestyles and that you take time to celebrate your victories as they come. Do not grow weary in well doing for you will be rewarded with a greater personal freedom if you don't quit!

PS. Today is day two of my 10 Day Summer Fast as outlined in "The Makers Diet" by Jordan Rubin. Yep, I will celebrate the 4th of July without my usual fare of burgers, ribs and hot dogs as I learn more productive ways to celebrate and come closer to my own personal Independence from my dependence on food for pleasure.

Grace and Peace,
