Hello Friends/supporters of mine,
Sending you all my best out there for a great summer /experience. Am sure some of you have nice vacations planned, and some just going with the flow -either way, be safe and enjoy as much of it as possible. Will try doing the same on this end, challenging as that can be at times. I will be partaking in a marathon this coming weekend (25th), which consist of 13 miles (26 laps around a giant dusty track). I have been training for it for a couple of months, so am ready to take it on. It will be my very first marathon, so am looking forward to taking on the challenge. I have turned a hatred of running/jogging into something I genuinely enjoy doing now. I may very well continue in this physical endeavor after this marathon. For all you lovers of the run, which I’m sure is probably not a lot (laugh), I’m right along side of ya 🙂
Also, we have a Kairos event coming up next month, which I am excited about. I don’t get to see members of my family often, so it’s a treat to be able to spend some time together; it will be my sweet aunt and mom. Needless to say, we will say, we will have our share of fun 🙂 Will keep you all in prayer as well.
Would like to finish by sharing a quote/affirmation with you from a Daily Word booklet that my uncle has subscribed for me. It goes as follows:
‘I infuse laughter, dance, and song into my day.
It’s easy t get caught up in the seriousness of life, so I make a point of doing things that bring joy. I become a natural conduit of happiness for others when I remember that joy is my natural state of being.
Life is intended to be joyful. It’ s easy for me to focus on everyday tasks or the seriousness of worldly news, yet I am not here on this earth your somber. I am a messenger of joy, and the joy of Spirit is moving through me.
I feel free and light as i express joy without censor. Today I free myself t do things that bring me joy. As I express myself in these ways, I also become a conduit of joy for those around me. My joy is contagious! I give thanks to God for joy—this natural state of being? I commit to living in joy every day. ‘
Take care out there, all of you, and continue walking in your blessings. I will return 🙂 Enjoy! The Struggle continues!
