Fence Phase 1 Complete

Today we finished phase 1 of the fence. We covered the posts with overlapping 1″x8″x8′ boards, elevated 1 inch for a subtle decorative feature. Came out beautiful and sturdy. Super happy to be finished with the greatest phase in size and demension. We start phase 2 tomorrow and that is very cool. Thank God. And another matter of thanks is our new favorite treat that we will be making a habit of. After mowing and a good shower, I took the kids skating. What fun! I forgot how fun skating was. My daughter’s first time. My son is a natural, faster than I am! We had a ball and it was a lovely cheap date for us. Fantastic!😄❤

Exercising in the Cold

So, I decided, as I over a long illness, that I am going to exercise in the early mornings again. As it is too cold lately to do that for this Florida gal, I started doing my exercise time on thr eluptical machine in the comfort of our home. Lol Baby, yes I am, when I can. Lol. And I am watching on Netflix during that time the series AD about the early church development from Jesus death on. And I am really enjoying the visual of their environment at the time and what they had to go through. It is quite good. I may or may not agree with some of their Hollywood drama, but I believe the Bible speaks for itself on the details and see the scene on the screen as historical context and it serves that purpose well. Good stuff. ❤

Never Underestimate a Doughnut and Fountain Soda

So, my kids had been getting out of shape a bit, a little belly on them, despite our pretty active lifestyle. And I realized that my walking alone 3 miles in the early hours before they awaken was doing them no good. So, I decided to walk 2 miles on my own and when they wake up walk with them a mile. They were very reluctant. So, I used the car odometer to find that the Circle K was 1.4 miles round trip from our house. So, the kids were very eager to walk even farther for a fountain drink and doughnut from Circle K. They are happy, getting fit (the exercise and muscle works off the goodies and benefits otherwise), and we all win. So there is a little trick to get your kids moving. Bribe them. Lol ❤

Good Walk

It has been a week of sickness and rainy cold weather so I have not had my walky talky (prayer walk) for that long. I got to walk this morning and although it was cold, I treasured each step. It starts my mind out right to have prayer time alone with God and invigorates my body to walk, gets my lungs clear and heart pumping. So I am very thankful for a good walk and look forward to getting back to walking regularly. It helps. Not much helps as much as that. ❤

The Road is Real, the Journey Deep

No matter what else is going on, how great is the truth of the road! The journey may be in circles but movement begats healing and truth is what moves me. On the road, in step with my prayers to Almighty God who made everything I look at, there is a vivid truth reality which propels me toward the better. Peace and joy flood in through the steps from the road through my shoe into my soul. God reminds me again I am not alone in this world. He is with me on the journey. I walk on.❤
