Meet a Sponsor...Enough Faith For Today!!

It's Wednesday and if you're familiar with my blog, you are probably thinking...WAIT...isn't it 'Weigh-In Wednesday'???  And if you're really keeping up with that little series of posts, you're thinking...WAIT...isn't this the week that Sarah set as the end of the 20lb weight loss goal??  Isn't she supposed to be returning to the doctor for bloodwork to have her super high cholesterol re-checked??  The answers would be yes...and yes.

BUT...

If you've been following along, you know that other plans were in our path for this week and I have been at the hospital with little Peyton since Sunday.  We're still there.  That means I've had no access to my scale.  That's probably a good thing since I have been eating cafeteria food lately.  I haven't been able to weigh myself since Sunday morning, so I have no idea where I'm at, which is a little frightening.  Yes, 10/20/11 was the date I was to return for bloodwork and, hence, the 20lb weight loss goal was set for this week.  Well, I know that as of Saturday, I'd lost not quite 19lbs.  I think this little delay is God's way of telling me to cut myself some slack and give myself a little break.  I'll probably have gone up a bit by the time I get home.  I'll also miss being able to go in for my bloodwork on 10/20, but I will go just as soon as I can when we're sprung from the hospital.  I'll be accountable with you all with my progress at that time as well!!  I promise.

All that aside, I have a treat for you...

I would love to introduce you to Kimberlee who blogs over at Enough Faith For Today.  I actually introduced her to you back in early September, when she shared a beautiful heartfelt post about the tragic loss of her nephew.  She's one of my October sponsors, so I asked her again if she'd like to share something with you all.  Here she is, sharing a bit about how her blog came to be!  Here is Kimberlee:

I would like to tell you the story of how the name of this blog came along...

Chapter 1~
See, the last few months have been hard for me. Really hard. I don't want to go into specifics but let's just say this: I was not seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. And I wanted out. Not like I wanted life to end, but I just didn't want to be me anymore. In fact, I didn't even know who me was. 

Somewhere between the cleaning and coffee, laundry and lunches, diapers, dinners and dishes, I WAS LOST... The life that I had prayed for ~ EVERYTHING I had asked of God, a wonderful husband, healthy children, a beautiful home, I was given. And yet I still wasn't satisfied. HOPELESSNESS gripped me. I was alone, afraid, and LOST. If I couldn't be happy with THIS life, how could I EVER be happy?

Chapter 2~
Fast forward a few months... I still had the same feelings. I hid them well in public, smiled at church, tried to hold it together... But I still felt alone. It had been a LONG time since I had prayed and HEARD Him... Been in devotion and felt Him move me. But in this moment, while reading scripture, He spoke, right to me ~ through His word.

"I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ."
Philemon 1:6

A dear friend had introduced me to the blogging world right around the same time I was beginning to unravel. I began following (or more like blog~stalking) some amazing women. They weren't claiming to be perfect, to have it all together, to be iconic. But just the opposite ~ they were real, organic. Living through their trials and tribulations and finding a peace that sustained them. They had something I had been lacking. FAITH.
And they were sharing their faith, and through that understanding the good things they had through Him.

Chapter 3~
I am growing slowly growing in faith... Continually making a conscious decision to choose to look to His Word for guidance and embracing His TRUTH over Satan's lies. He is giving me my portion day by day, and I am receiving just Enough Faith For Today.
