Update - My ridiculousness!

Good morning!!!!!

Here is the update on the foot.  It's healing!!  It's not healed but it's healing! I've got at least two more weeks with the boot, but I think more like 4!  I will thank God for working body parts (especially feet!) all my days!

I was cleared to go to the gym on the stationary bike, which made me so happy!  The funniest part is that I strongly dislike the stationary bike, which I am not sure why... sitting down and exercising kind of seems like a win-win doesn't it?  I really ended up liking it!  I set it on the 'fat burn' setting and it was a good workout.  Not to mention, I read today's bible reading, and got 2 more done that I was behind trying to complete the bible in a year - I read Psalms and Proverbs today, as Levi would say 'whoa'.  I prayed, listened to worship music (for the last nine minutes as my 'treat').  It felt so good to get to the gym, get my blood flowing!  I really did forget how good it felt!

I also made a new recipe!  Starting my day off at the gym gives me incredible energy and makes me happy happy happy! I know it's ridiculous, but I feel like working out helps my mind, body, and spirit!  The time I spend at the gym on the bike (used to be treadmill or eliptical) is also time well spent with God. He's up with me, and sometimes it seems we may be the only two awake because it's great one-on-one time.  I talk, He listens, He talks, I listen.  It's great.

Today was the first day in 4 weeks that I had matching shoes on!  What a great day!

Psalm 46
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.[c]

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

7 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

8 Come and see what the LORD has done,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the shields[d] with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
