We got home from BSF in Longview with lots of lillies for the church. It seems like Easter is early and we have had a shortage of lillies.
So after climbing 9 flights of stairs at BSF, I looked at my fit bit and only had 8000 steps. So... I knew I didn't want to stay up to midnight getting my steps and the only place I could fit it in was going to and from church. DH got on his bike and clocked the mileage from our cottage to the church front door - two miles round trip.
Now you've got to understand - we live in the country with no sidewalks, no bike lanes or trails, no walking trails and no shoulders and plenty of pick up trucks and oil trucks and salt water trucks. I did enjoy myself stirring up all the dogs as I passed by and got to see the scenery more slowly. The little kids playing in the church yard were concerned. "Why did you walk? Is something wrong with your car?" I tried to explain to the kids and little ladies at church that if I didn't walk now pretty soon I wouldn't be able to . So what if my face was red. Something I noticed today too is that there are a lot of 30 year olds that can't make the stairs. So when do you start doing something differently? I think NOW it the answer for me.
And I got my 14000 steps. So now I can rest.
Timothy 4:7-8 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wivesí tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
God bless us with the ability to move and keep moving.
