Just a quick post to say, I've been busy. Between moving to another state, packing and unpacking the boxes, and almost having a dog die (the ball lover pictured here) once we got here has taken up most of my energy and emotional investment.
Here is what I have been up to... for a few days there, my phone got the better of me as I wanted to keep my friends updated about the process of moving and what was going on with Trixie (she seems to be getting better now, BTW Thanks for prayers and etc). So I certainly couldn't keep myself to my twice for 30 minutes a day routine. Now I am back to my regimen and happy for it.
I've read a novel in four days for the first time in as long as I can remember. Ender's Game (I'm a sucker for sci-fi). I gotta say though, brutal 10 year old geniuses just didn't intrigue me too much. For those of you with older children out there... a little heads up (especially with all the rumors of it becoming a movie soon): several instances of cussing, but worse: a general attitude of how adults are really out to use children for their own means (which the adults actually do) with a general distrust of adults throughout. Also... the main character kills some other children "in self-defense" which causes him to wrestle with his identity of being a killer like his brother, who is only a teenager. I won't be suggesting it to my 11 year old son any time soon (if ever).
The next book off the public library shelf is another science fiction novel- Opening Atlantis. Kind of an alternate history kind of thing (yes, I am a sucker for that specific subset of sci-fi genre as well). So far it is pretty good.
Running has been put on hold, but is about to get started again next week.
Theologically speaking, I am reading Hebrews and the concepts of shadow and covenant are really standing out to me. I will write more on this maybe sometime during the coming week as I continue to gather my findings and formulate my realizations.
Be great. Pray hard. Read your Bibles. And go Team USA!
Serving through love and laughter is a great way to live.
