I decided during my morning run to just let it go…”it” being the need to try to fit regular things into an irregular week.  Run was nice.  I’m like a puppy, I guess; I just can’t stay out of the grass!!!  So, got my grassy laps in, but still didn’t feel totally up to par, and I didn’t want to risk injury, so I only did 3 laps.  Meanwhile, back on the asphalt…not just ANY asphalt, mind you…oh, no, I’m talking about poured-within-the-last-couple-of-weeks kind of asphalt; the kind poured to make beautiful new streets through beautiful new parts of a neighborhood; the kind where the only proof of life on the black, cushioned track; oops, I mean street, are scant dirt tracks from big, yellow, dirty machines.  Oh, yeah, I turned right in.  No workmen around, no barricades.  This run was for ME!  It was great.  I actually felt rejuvenated and took it as far as I could & then followed it back.  Ended up with almost 4 miles.  Not terrible.  Movement is good.  Movement is good.

I was pleasantly surprised to remember that I had an hour to go soak up the Son at school.  Got to see my own son while I was there & that’s always a treat.  I love that boy.  He has such a beautiful, discerning, quiet spirit.  I wonder how many people who know him see what I see.  There isn’t a day that goes by that he doesn’t have questions about God.  I was not that way when I was 16.  I love that about him.  He helped bring me closer to God just by being my son.  Something about knowing I was having a baby just made me feel like I wanted everything to be right with God from that moment on. 

My time in Adoration was the same as ever.  God’s presence is just so tangible while I am there.  It is hard for me to quiet my mind, but when I am in there, with God’s help, I manage to do just that.  It’s great.  I don’t know what I would do without my relationship with God.  He is everything to me.  And to think I used to believe I wasn’t worthy or likeable, is that spelled right?  Or lovable for that matter.  He got me over those feelings right quick.  Now I love knowing that He loves me just as I am. 

Switching gears TOTALLY, now.  I ordered P90X.  Yes, I did.  I thought I could handle the whole muscle confusion thing by myself, but not so much anymore.  So, I’m curious to see what that cat Tony Horton has to say on the subject.  I’ll keep you posted.  Get it, POSTED???!!!!  Just some blogger-humor…teehee.
