HEALTH is my word for 2017

I resolve to be more healthy in mind, body and spirit in the year 2017.

I will be healthier in body by reworking my diet to include more healthy
foods and less junk.  To put more good nutritional value into my body and
less negative nutrition in.  I will move more even though arthritic knees and
an overweight body screams "NO!".  I will be more responsible in taking my
prescribed medications knowing they are an added value to my good health.

"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you,
whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?  For you have
been purchased at a price.  Therefore glorify God in your body."
1 Cor 6:19-20

I will be healthier in mind by using my strengths in my creativity and
intelligence that will exercise my brain power.  Some of these activities will
include:  reading, puzzles, genealogy, needlework, blogging/journaling.

"Anxiety in a man's heart depresses it.  But a kindly word makes
it glad."  Proverbs 12:25

I will be healthy in spirit by moving forward in my spiritual life.  I have not had
a church for 2 years and it is something I miss very much.  I will begin my journey
to find a new and welcoming church to be a part of.  I will start/join a Bible study
group.  I am interested in studying women of the Bible from Eve to Mary.

"Train yourself for devotion, for, physical training is of limited value, but
devotion is much more valuable in every respect, since it holds promise
of life for the present and for the future."  1 Timothy 4:7-8


  1. I'm still with you, Ellen, and wishing you all the best for 2017. I'm not one for resolutions, being a rebel-of-sorts through and through, but I did have one thought for myself this year: to review my life and the living I did - each weekend, so I don't go into the new week dragging the previous week's muck after me! I hope I can keep to it.

    Happy New Year!


    1. I love your attitude about dumping the previous week's muck and starting each week new and fresh. I wish more people had that goal. Glad your still with me. Have a great next week.
