No punishment here...
Our culture is a motivated one. Being a women who can accomplish a full time job, several kids and still fit in a vigorous exercise routine would be applauded by most. I am not that women. I do what I love and what seems to make me more of who God made me to be...but that's about it. A full time job, not right now...maybe another time. Kids, Oh yes, I'm doing the family thing right now and I love it. Six mile runs...ummmmm I wouldn't enjoy that. But I'll tell you what I do like. Eating dessert with my sister and the rare chance to go shopping. So that's what Ash and I did this month and I hope to get the detailed recipe for that dessert she made. If I can hit the pavement three times a week for any duration and Ash does the same, we plan a little something something to celebrate. It's all about the celebrating. =o) I find a part of myself when I lace up my running shoes and get out of the house for a half hour of good quiet time and heart healthy cardio jogging. I actually went through endorphin withdrawal when I couldn't run while carrying baby Christian. I don't think God ever wanted us to punish ourselves with exercise. Enjoy what's around you today and be healthy knowing God loves you.
