Great start to the week

Monday, August 19, 2013

Yesterday in church our minister had a great message about exercising for God. Keeping our relationship flexible. It was a great message. He then told us a story about Winston Churchill's last public speaking event. He had to be helped to the podium. A very large group had gathered and he was very ill. He stood at the podium with his head hanging and hands gripping the podium so long some thought he had gone to sleep.

He looked up and said 9 words. The last 9 words he spoke publicly as he died soon after.

"Never give up, never give up, never give up!"

Those words really moved me. We can apply those 9 words to so many aspects of our lives. Never give up hope, determination, love, etc. I could do on and on.

I will never give up.

    That is moving!

Churchill is one of the reasons my hubs and I had bulldogs for so long!

I love that message! Exercising and taking care of our bodies because God gave them to us. I need to put that in the forefront of my thinking.
