I’ve been saying for years I want to get back in shape, so today Kevin and I are going to Planet Fitness. Hopefully this will be the start of something good. I’ll need to find more excuses to run over the mountain now :)
And then there’s the writing, which I’ve gotten lazy about as well. Much like physical muscles, they need to be exercised or they’ll atrophy. Lazy verse is a curse :)
I have some spiritual goals, too, but I’m not sure how to go about accomplishing those. All I can say is God promises to draw near to us if we draw near to Him. I think Brother Lawrence’s little book “The Practice of the Presence of God” is a gem. I realize I’ve become spiritually lazy as well. It is work to keep priorities and thoughts in line. I’m rereading “The Screwtape Letters” and realizing just how easily I’ve been distracted (and how weak I really am). It helps to know how the enemy works, and that little book is an eye opener.
Off with the old, eh?
