Is This Your Time?

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1”

Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.

I learned this saying in Weight Watchers. It remains one of my favorites to remember and quote. A friend of mine changed it to say, "Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels."

King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived, spoke the above words from life observation. My time for weight loss came at last. Maybe I took that long to learn to let God move in my life. Who knows? Can we hasten the season for us? I believe so.

Another saying I really like comes from Franklin F. Adams.

Health is the thing that makes you feel that now is the best time of the year.

When we improve our health, regardless of our season in life, a new world opens. Because we spend less time worrying about what we’ll eat next, we have more time to create. Since we don’t use as much time stopping for food and snacking, we expand our horizons. When my brain got off sugar, ideas popped like new adventures. Health makes any season the best time of all.

Could it be that this is your season for a new venture?

I sure like Adams' quote. Everything you've said, I know by experience. Great article.

I've had this link in my mail box since you posted it. I didn't open or read it until this morning. It was the right time. I have been feeling quite, no really badly, depressed. I am in a great deal of pain. And, I let my own journey with Weight Watchers slide. I wasn't tracking as I should. Of course, I showed a gain. Thankfully, not a large one. Perhaps, today is the day I'll get back on track. Janet, let me take this public venue to tell you how much you mean to me. A lot . . . I can depend on your wisdom. Thanks.

Thanks, Dianne, for visiting with me.

Winona, I'm glad it helped. Weight loss & writing - both are such lonely, individual journeys. I pray for your pain. God has something special for you, my girlfriend. Sorry I'm late reading.

I'm glad your experience has been so successful. God often has different paths for each of us. The good thing? He's with us no matter what road we travel.

Yes, Vivian, we all must find our path & our time & quit comparing ourselves with others.
