Blessed Beyond Measure?

Exercise and gratitude love each other

iPhone photo app
Only 21 photos of the thousand or so from an 8-day trip. Photos and blessings – they are more alike than unalike.

 

Feeling so blessed to have:

  • A flexible Family
  • A habitually creative mindset
  • A health goal worth defending
  • The blessing of a temple (body) housing everything keeping me alive

In spite of life’s constant deluge of things to do, exercise never gets put on the back burner for long.

Last night’s walk had me praying for many people on the street

“If we followed the same rules for health that we do about religion, we would all be bedridden. It is not enough to talk about the necessity of health; we must do something practical about it – for example, eat, exercise and rest. So it is with religion. We must nourish ourselves with the truths of God, exercise our spiritual muscles in prayer, mortify ourselves of those things which are harmful to the soul, and be just as scrupulous in avoiding moral evil as we are in avoiding physical evil.” – Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Should every Christian honor this temple?

Should every Christian honor this temple?

The thing called the human body.

It’s the temple housing everything keeping us alive.

Is all day, everyday excessive or the only acceptable standard?

more is better
wow, there’s a lot of extra multiplying there (more is better?)

Is all day, everyday excessive or the only acceptable standard? How much prayer is too much, too little, or just right?

The answer is probably similar to how much exercise is too much, too little, or just right?

If we stop exercising, does that make us prone to stop praying?

questions
the questions I ask often make me feel as alone as this tree

If we stop exercising, does that make us prone to stop praying? It would seem like the focus and discipline correlation between physical activity and spiritual activity would be significant. Quitting, and other easy options, say excuses, can become quite an unhealthy habit.
