I have been with Spark now for a year and it was the best move I made answering the email. I have learnt so much about myself and how to keep myself healthy. What I thought I knew about food was a rude awakening as others may have the same experience. Each day when I come on site and do the point page I learn something new.
I have always considered our bodies a work of art the way they are made up to run continueously. What we put in them and do with them is a whole different question. I have always been basically healthy and lived that way. But as we grow we learn and you can learn on the Spark people site.

Another factor which is a really nice part is the people that we meet and make friends with. We have people from all over the world and I have them for friends which makes me happy. I would not trade anyone that I have met, they are golden.

Enjoy your ride on the Spark people train, learn from them, make friends and love every minute of it. Be happy with who you are, we are just making ourselves better.

Love yourself, love life and make the most of it.

My Goals:
My goals on Spark is to maintain a very healthy life. Eat well and healthy, keep moving and exercising so I can stay young. My birthday is July 8, 1943. Meet amazing people and have fun in all the teams, blogs, secrets and everytihing. Great place to be and I love it. I want to always be able to make myself presentable when I go out. I am very particular about my hair, makeup and my clothes. My sisters say I am always together but they should see me when I am in the garden. I never go out without being together. As you get older people start to slip and I want to be able to control that.

My Program:
I start the day earlier than I use to after my husband died I had no reason to get out of bed. 2 reasons are my dogs and if I did not have them who knows what would have happen. If it wasn't for an email on my site that said Spark was free and had a lot to offer I would have never been doing what I am now. I went into Spark and liked it right aways.
I make sure I eat 3 healthy meals and I don't eat a lot but I do eat a lot of fruit and vegetables. Not a vegetarian but summer I live out of my garden. I have a very large yard, 5 acreas but have 28 acreas to roam in. I cut 5 acreas the rest is rented and farmed.
I have bought some of Sparks exercise equipment and it is a hoot to see me try and do the ball exercises but I finally get the swing of it. Walking and exercise are a regular thing for me and my dogs walk with me at least the big one, little one stops after the first round. Now the pool is up and running so I am in it almost everyday and exercise and try and swim a little

Personal Information:
I am 68, 5'7" , 135 lbs. hazel eye, white, gray hair and love life.
I was raised in Richardson Park in the state of Delaware and that is in the northen part and now I live in the southern park in Seaford where I married my husband and was married for 36 years before I lost him to cancer. Raised 3 daughters and they are all professionals, nurse, teacher, cosmotologist, massues and I am proud of them. I have 5 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
I ran The Salvation Army office as Director for 28 years and cried when I had to quit because of medical problems. I loved my job and if I could go back I would but that is not what God wants from me now. I love bowling and I am in 3 leagues in the winter and 2 in the summer. I want to get involved with more senior groups so I can make some new friends as my are passing away. I love meeting people and will try anything in reason with food, travel or sports. So that is a little about me and by the way my name is Joyce. Have a fun life

Other Information:
Love to read romance mysteries, thrillers. love stories and real life stories. Love Nascar and Dale Jr. and alot of the other drivers but he is # 1 I watch the truck, nationwide and sprint. Music is Christian gospel, country, oldies, big band, jazz.
I love to dance but don't get to much.

    I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

    {This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }

    'Twas the night before Jesus came
    and all through the house
    Not a creature was praying,
    Not one in the house.
    Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
    In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

    The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
    Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
    And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
    Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

    When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
    I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
    Away to the window I flew like a flash,
    Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

    When what to my wondering eyes should appear
    But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
    With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
    I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

    The light of His face made me cover my head
    It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
    And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
    I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

    In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
    Was written the name of every saved man.
    He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
    When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

    The people whose names had been written with love
    He gathered to take to His Father above.
    With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
    While all the rest were left standing around.

    I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
    I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
    I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
    Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

    In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
    The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
    There's only one life and when comes the last call
    We'll find that the Bible was true after all!

    (by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

    To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.

    This Life on Earth

    Easter means that this life on earth
    is not all there is.
    Jesus went "to prepare a place for us"
    in His Father’s heavenly mansions
    for all eternity.
    Jesus died for our sins,
    paying our penalty,
    so that we could be forgiven.
    He was resurrected, to prove
    that death has no hold
    on those who repent
    and accept Him as Savior.
    This life on earth is a prelude
    to eternal joy with our Lord.
    Easter is a celebration
    of our eternal destiny.
