I have been on health regimes most of my life. After years of yo-yo dieting, I became complacent. Happy, but complacent.

God had spoken to my spirit that if someone did not like me because of my size, who owned the problem. He also whispered that I had bigger problems than weight gain. And it was those bigger problems that were more urgent as they were hindering my relationships, success and happiness.

In the ensuing years much has been healed and settled through conscious decisions and actions. Things like anger, control issues and unforgiveness. As previously recorded, now is the time to step up to a healthy lifestyle.

I came back from the Chicago Self-Care Covenant training with renewed courage. Weeks passed and things rocked along nicely. Then we bought new cell phones and the frustration begun.

I will not bore you with the details but suffice it to say that I talked with individuals from several countries and no resolve had come. I went back to the store of purchase. They talked with individuals from several countries.

During the ordeal I remained relatively calm with my mind fixed on an ice cream sundae. How it would soothe. And comfort.

As I walked across the parking lot, Holy Spirit asked me if an ice cream sundae would solve the phone problem? What joy filled my soul as I acknowledged it would not.

As I drove past the ice cream parlor, I waved. And I also said a prayer of thanks that the covenant had kicked in.

Eventually my money was refunded and I went with another provider. Thanks for asking.
