Another email to enjoy and share. This came with cute pics.
Now, this is really a cute one...and I’ve not seen it before, either!! That is getting to be a rarity!!!
Lord, help me wash away all my selfishness and
vanity, so I may serve you with perfect humility
through the week ahead.
Dear Lord, help me iron out all the wrinkles
of prejudice I have collected through the years
so that I may see the beauty in others.
Oh God, help me mend my ways so I will not
set a bad example for others.
Lord, help me to dust out all the many faults
I have been hiding in the secret corners of my heart.
Oh God, give me the grace to shop wisely so I may purchase
eternal happiness for myself and all others in need of love.
Help me, my Savior, to brew a big kettle of brotherly
love and serve it with clean, sweet bread of human kindness.
Sunday—The Lord’s Day
Oh God, I have prepared my house for you. Please
come into my heart so I may spend the day and the
rest of my life in your presence.

My sister-in-law runs an online business..and posts a newsletter every Sunday. I enjoyed her closing quote (I don't know the origin).
Quote of the Day - First Thing Every Morning
If you had a bank that credited your account each morning with $86,400-with no balance carried from day to day-what would you do? Well, you do have such a bank...time.
Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it rules off as "lost" whatever you have failed to use toward good purposes. It carries over no balances and allows no overdrafts. You can't hoard it, save it, store it, loan it or invest it. You can only use it-time.

When I lived in the US Virgin Islands, I spent about 3 hrs a day..five days a week, walking at a fairly leisurely pace. I was participating in a volunteer ministry and many of my companions didn't like the heat, couldn't walk all that well or were elderly. Thus, our pace was not a speedy one. During the time I was there, my blood sugars stayed NORMAL..to the point that I even went off the medications to control my blood sugar. I was always trying to figure out how to get exercise in each day..not realizing the benefits of the gentle walking each day.
NOW, here comes a study discussing what I discovered on my own. Have a look.
I am just NOT interested in running...running fast or jogging more slowly. Walking...that I enjoy. So, I know which is for ME!
