E is for Exercise and 365 Days of Blessings, Day 311

E is for Exercise!

Exercise is a blessing, whether we are stretching our writing muscles, our heart muscle, our bodies, our minds, or our souls. Exercise keeps us fully alive.


Blessings in Exercise:


1.Writing Exercises keep my writing in shape, or at least stretch my abilities.

2.Writing exercise books.

3.Walking

4.Skiing

5.Dancing

6.Kayaking/Canoeing

7.Giving time and talent in service in our community – stretches our heart muscles.

8.Bible reading, prayer, worship, and serving in our church community are all soul exercise.

9.The puzzle section in the newspaper, reading new books, and homeschooling my kids all keep my mind exercised and ready for the next adventure.

10.Singing – it’s good for the heart, mind, soul and body.

Scripture Blessings:


"For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing."
2 Timothy 4:6-8


This isn't the one I was thinking of as I wrote this post, but it was the one I found this morning . . . sometimes God provides what we need to hear, and not what we think we need/want.

KarenG said...

Right now I am working on adding the physical exercise, I've been such a slacker.

So many ways to exercise, so many ways to grow.

Nice post! Exercise should be a staple of everyone's life. And nice list!

Ella - Great! I wrote this right before we left for skiing.

KarenG - I know how you feel. I'm probably 30 pound overweight, and the struggle to get myself started is tough some days.

Shelli - Exactly!!!

Matthew-I agree that exercise should be a staple. Thanks!

I wish I did more physical exercising, but I have a hard time keeping up with the writing exercises!

Along with dancing...I've been biking, walking, and generally trying to keep fit! My body, my temple, right?

Exercise is so true! Great pick for E. From a former dancer's POV, I just can't function without it. LOL

They were talking about being "in shape" spiritually on K-Love this morning. It fits perfectly with this post. :-)
