I haven’t worked out in two weeks. It’s so frustrating. I have injured (re-injured?) my right foot and while I have done everything I know to do…pamper it, stay off it, ibuprofen, ice, etc., it is still not any better and now is impacting my knee and hip, etc. So I broke down and made an appointment with the orthopedic doc. *sigh* I hate going to the doctor. But, doesn’t everyone? (except my father-in-law) My appointment is tomorrow afternoon. Please, pray that it is not a fracture or anything really stupid like that. I am ready to get back to some cardio and really, there is no reason I can’t go to the gym and do some ab work and upper body stuff. Right? Right? I just hate gimpin’ into the gym.
It’s Monday. I like Monday’s. I know that most folks don’t. I like the quiet. Except when I fall back asleep and forget that I told the Wild Boy that I would wake him up for his orthodontist appointment. Not that that has happened or anything *today* *cough.* After that may or may not have happened this morning and the Wild Boy may or may not have run out the door slamming it behind him, it was super quiet in the house. It was later than I like, but I sat down for my quiet time and soaked in the calm and the peace. That just sounds wonderful and idyllic, doesn’t it? Immediate peace and quiet. Or, not so much. My mind raced and spinned and flipped around. Just like it has been doing night after night the last few months. So this morning, it took a bit of time for my brain to chill. For the peace to come. This week’s Psalm reading is from Psalm 107 which begins…Give thanks to the Lord,<sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; line-height: normal; vertical-align: top;" value="(A)”> for he is good; his love endures forever. And, while I continued on reading the entire Psalm, I kept coming back to that first verse. With thanks, came peace; with thanks, came love. I’ll be reading that Psalm all week as part of my Lenten readings. Join me? Here’s a quick link to Psalm 107.
I am obsessed with the song from Breaking Dawn, Part 2…A Thousand Years. Love the melody and the words. Please note I did not say I am obsessed with the Twilight Series. I read the books (okay, I was sort-a kind-a obsessed with the books…read all of them while at the beach one year and still had a couple days to not read…in my defense, they are quick reads.) I have seen all the movies. At least once. They are fun to watch with My Girl.
The song though, I think it reminds me of my relationship with God, which is why I am loving it right now. Here are the words. If you click on the song title, I’ve linked it to Wikipedia (not that I think that everything on Wikipedia is true, but does give some further info about the song and writers.)
