Dear Sisters of WLGW, This morning I’m enjoying some quiet time after several pleasant but hectic days. My husband and I have cared for grandkids and also hosted our Small Group Bible Study. Today I’m just letting some lessons of Receiving God’s Love soak in. I so enjoy looking back at comments that some of you have left at the end of the studies! I find we have a lot of the same struggles in common, and also many of the same joys. And then other times I love finding out about someone else’s uniqueness. Thank you for taking the time to share with the rest of us.

This morning as I meditated on God singing over me, this song came to my spirit:

Me singing to Him: I love You, Lord, and I lift my voice to worship You, oh my soul rejoice! Take joy, my King, in what You hear. Let it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear.

Him singing to me: I love you, child, and I lift my voice to comfort you, let your soul rejoice!    Take joy, My child, in what you hear. Let it be a sweet, loving sound in your ear.

Have a blessed day, Sisters!

Hi! My name is Ena. I often get asked where my name came from so I'll start by saying that I was born in The Netherlands. I have lived most of my life in Michigan, and have been married to my great husband for 46 years. We have 2 children and 7 grandchildren (6 boys, 1 girl). I'm a nurse by profession. I have known Jesus since I was a little girl, and gave my life to Him fully when I was 16 years old. I have struggled with being overweight since my son was born 38 years ago. I have tried about every weight loss program imaginable except surgery, with either little success or with some success, only to gain the weight back. I went through the Breakthrough Program in early 2017. It was here that I learned that losing weight, keeping weight off, and maintaining good health is not about sheer will power! I learned that how I handle food can be connected to deep seated emotions, and that my relationship with my Heavenly Father is so important to caring for my body well and living a healthy lifestyle. I find the weight being released gradually, and this is how it should be as I learn more about myself and God's unconditional love for me. I love how Cathy teaches every lesson using Scripture, and I'm so grateful to God for leading me to the Breakthrough Program! I look forward to continuing this journey with all of you.
