Today we had a first time marathon in our city. The route brought the participants right by our church on their final 2.5 miles. It was great. Some of us skipped church...well ooops, some of us used the opportunity to serve. We had permission to pass out Twizzlers from the city. We also cheered the participants on with yelling and posters. Almost all of the participants gave us a thumbs-up or a thank you. We continued until the last walker came through. We were out there 4.5 hours. It was quite an experience. I think I will have laryngitis tomorrow. I also may or may not confess to "borrowing " a Little Tikes drum from the nursery and getting a beat going for these participants. It was an uplifting church time for me.
Later , we went home and relaxed for a few while my nephew rode his bike. Later, we took a 25 minute hike.
I feel so good today.
Some of my feeling good is not just today. I have come to the conclusion that you only live once. I am doing things I have never done before. I have been going to Paint Nite and learning that I can paint and love it. I am going back to school to get my Special Ed degree and think I can take the position that I am doing now as a long-term sub. Life is changing and I am embracing it. It could not get much lower but its turning. Praise Jesus!
I am also going to Aqua Zumba and Aqua Kickboxing classes and walking alot. I feel great most days. I am walking taller and more confident. I have to thank an old high school acquaintance for encouraging me to get in the water again. God has brought us together as friends and we are encouraging each other. I also think God has brought her in my life to be a Godly influence on her. I could go into more but that is her story. I just just hope and pray that I am being what she needs and making God proud in the process.
Take my life and let it be a living prayer My God to thee.
