Renewal and Recommitment

Sparodic attempts-i.e. lack of consistently have plagued me during the past six months. However, I recently read a blog by JMerleau which shook me up: Shut and Sweat was the tile of the blog. Merlau's blogs inspire me. Especially important to my state of mind was his quote:

"We must train from the inside out. Using our strengths to attack and nullify any weaknesses. It's not about denying a weakness may exist but about denying its right to persist."

It was the notion of persitence over weaknesses which resonated in me. Though I have read Sparkpeople emails, articles, recipes etc. daily through the 6 moths, I have not commited to healthy living as much as I did today. Thank you JMerlau.

Yup Nancy, we go by books...in the order of the old testament. We completed Genesis last month & have just begun Exodus, this is basically a class for seniors, where we do only a couple of verses at a time from the books. We are a group of about 17 of us and have 4 to 6 younger ones who escort their elders.... the age group is between 75 to 90...So our preacher too has to go very slow.... as once we start rambling... then she needs to gently bring us back on track....We have this very lovely 32 year old australian girl who is at the Theological Society and specialises in Bible for Seniors.... And the best part is she speaks Malayalam fluently and that helps is communicating with most of the group. It is just me and a couple of others who are fluent in English.....

For one minute walk outside , stand there in silence and look up at the sky, contemplate just how amazing life is. Have a great day!
