A Gastronomical journey in 2012-about to begin-hold on if your going to follow

I 'm preparing to start this year out right.In fact, I'v'e been keeping a little secret for 3 months.This coming up year I will be slim and healthy.I'm having Bariatric surgery.I'm almost there.Yes, it's a real journey I'm going on.I must fly on the back of the Creator's wings and not look down into the darkness. I know from  My own experience and the experience of generations before Me that He is able to carry me through this. 

Me on the back of the creator-watch us soar.I can just sit back and enjoy the new journey this next year will bring.

I will feel young enough to continue enjoying whatever life brings my way.More babes to love and teach the mysteries to and more enchanting lands to soar through.

The I AM will be with me.

If you want to follow our journey,go ahead.No fear though of where we go or what we show you.
I don't even know where He plans to take Me,or the doors He plans to open and close.

I cannot fear the living water now,how long I live or what I see.

I am in His arms no matter where in 2012.

Oh Denise,

YOU CAN DO THIS! I have no idea what this surgery entails, but I WISH YOU HEALTH AND STRENGTH to make it through! THANK YOU DEAR ONE for coming to visit me! It has been a wonderful year, and I have such fond memories of sweet words and images that is really the only thing we all have at this moment to connect. But what a wonderful way to communicate. Please let us know how all goes for you!

Those paintings are wonderful...I pray all goes well with your surgery...this is something I have considered as well...but,I am going to try very hard after the new year to do it on my own once and for all. If I don't lose some major weight so I can have knee replacements...I will most likely be going to a wheel chair in the next year or two. It's been a life time battle for me....the weight issue,that is. I hope this works for you and is successful in every way...blessings

Best of wishes to you...I've wanted to do this for years, but my doc won't recommend it and I don't think my insurance covers it anyway. *sigh* I hope it goes well for you...I'll be watching for progress updates! :)

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
