|My handsome son, Andrew joined me on a trail walk this morning!|
Honey, my daughter and son-in-law's dog stayed home too. She will be going on the next trip. She is, in fact a English Pointer! But she needs more training and this is going to be a long trip.
My son actually asked me if I was walking the trail this morning. I told him yes, of course. He asked if he could come along and bring Honey!
I was so happy to share my trail with my son. We did a nice 1.5 mile loop. It was getting hot and Honey was panting, so we came back. We'll be having a healthy lunch at Laughing Planet before I go to rehearsal.
He took a picture of Honey and I. I still am carrying a lot of fat around my middle, but it is slowly melting. And I am not giving up. Never give up!
I never tire of reading about Jesus. Today I read about the baptism of Jesus by John and it took on a whole new meaning for me:
"Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”
Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented.As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:13-17
I plan on reading through the New Testament every morning. When I am finished I will go back and start with the Old Testament again!
Just like my exercise, healthy eating, piano practice, and prayer, bible study is now a permanent part of my life. There will be good days and bad. But I am in it for the duration of the journey!
