This is one of those posts that could go in several different directions. Just like my thoughts!
It has been a day of reflection...of unexpected feelings...of excitement about what lies ahead and fear about the very same thing!
I listened to a great sermon today...sitting with people I love...got to see an old friend from high school...and was given the opportunity to once again KNOW that God is loving me through every single step of this Journey....and truthfully...I left the building with some unexplained angst. ..some awkward displaced feelings...
So I had a healthy lunch...did a 4 mile walk and now sit here...praying...writing...sharing pieces of today's Journey....today's trek!
I told someone important to me..someone I respect. ..that I am completely IMMERSED in this Journey...again. After feeling disconnected for weeks...they simply responded, "Good and it is OK".
I thought the response spoke volumes....truth is....it does not always FEEL Good OR OK!
But it is crucial....It is important!
This Journey is about finding a way to faithfully take care of my body....faithfully take care of my relationships...faithfully seek God's guidance and Faithfully Forge On!
Truth...This Journey is INTENSE and I am wrapped in that Intensity today!
I set a goal today (officially) to LOSE 40LBS by August 16th...the day of our 2nd Annual Play It Forward-Rally to Serve event!
QUITE FRANKLY, it scares me to set the goal...AND it feels necessary...it feels important to progress along on this Journey!
As I finish this I feel compelled to say this prayer!
God, Grant the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the Courage to change the things I can and The Wisdom to know the difference.
