Straight on Through

Things in my head and now …. not

Spiritual Boot Camp

Ok… I have been thinking about this since August and just hadn’t found the right time to implement it – but now I feel I am ready.

Starting January 1, I am going to embark on a 31 day Spiritual Boot Camp. Here is what that means:

Mind: I am going to spend a minimum of 30 minutes reading my Bible 5 times a week. (This is a commitment I need to do because life tends to get in the way and I dont do this as often as I should or certainly could).

Body:  I will work out a minimum of 4 times a week at least 30 minutes a time. I will continue to eat better.

Spirit:  I will spend a minimum of 30 minutes in prayer 5 times a week. (This is something I should consistently be doing anyway).

At some point in January I will take a silent retreat to our cabin. I have never done this and am excited to do it!

I will blog through my month and the happenings. I am open to anyone who would care to join me in this Boot Camp. If you are interested, leave me a message here…. I would love the support and the company!bootcamp-for-web

Monday Mind Dump

What a week last week…. I’ll try to give the highlights here and not forget anything….

Monday I helped out with the IHN group and we witnessed a death of a man in the parking lot.

Tuesday I covered the IHN shift until Tim and Justin arrived. Kristi Anderson came to cut hair and they all really enjoyed that. She is so great!

Wednesday I helped deliver people to the day center. By this time I am so tired…

Thursday I stayed overnight with Sandi for our IHN night. We stayed up until about 1 am talking and talking….

Friday afternoon I found out a lady I work with on the builders committee died in a car crash Thursday evening. My heart is heavy for her family.

Friday we had Amanda and Tim’s party at Rafferty’s Pizza.

Saturday I helped set up for the wedding and we had Tim and Amanda’s wedding Saturday evening. It was beautiful! Justin took Chance to ring the bell and then brought him to the wedding too.

Sunday – went to church but afterwards…. pretty much crashed. Fell asleep in the recliner reading my book for book club.

I finished the book club book last night! Yay! See the review of A Christmas Carol here
