A Daily Walk 4-27-20

I have been trying to make sure I walk everyday to get a little bit of exercise during this shut-in. Today it was drizzly, but I found some beauty in the moss. I love moss!

I know this last one doesn’t have any moss, I was just so ecvited about the tulip trees beginning to bloom I had to share!

Now that you have seen a bit of my walk, jump on over to Jo’sMonday Walk and see how beautiful her walk was today.

What does a daily walk for a minister look like?

I started these posts to start making myself more accountable for the exercise I committed to doing at the beginning of the year. I have upped my game in that department. I am getting out and physically walking or exercising at least three times a week, which is better than zero times a week, but it is still not where I thought I would be.

Maybe my sights were set a little too high for a beginning, or maybe if I had set my sights lower I would be right where I was before, with nothing. I don’t know.

What I do know is that my life coach often says that if we say “yes” to one thing it means we have to say “no” to another.

What does a daily walk for a minister look like? 

I guess it looks like going to sit at the bedside of a dying congregant and praying with her family. I guess it looks like visiting the ER and bringing another sick congregant the clothes they need before they go to rehab. It probably looks like visiting a local Bible college and meeting with prospective young ministers to start them on the road to practical ministry. I suppose it could even be sitting at a computer and writing blogs about ministerial life. It is about planning awards ceremonies for young ladies who have achieved great things in their Christian walks, and about calling leaders who are laboring hard for the Kingdom of God, to encourage them to keep going. At least that is what my daily walks have become in the last two or three days. I have to tell you I wouldn’t say “no” to any of these things even if I was offered a walk on the beach in Waikiki.

I will get back to exercising my body soon enough but for these last days it has been about exercising my faith. For me, that is enough to keep me going.

My Daily Walk 2-17-16

With the temperature plunging to -17 with a wind chill of -39,  I missed all my daily walks this weekend. I did spend a little time stretching though.

I really thought I would be back at it yesterday but the rains came in like a flood. The creek behind the house overflowed its banks and the entire neighborhood was one big puddle.image

So today in spite of a very busy schedule I insisted on stopping between appointments for a walk. I had to meet my accountant in Keene NH. Then on the way back home I stopped in the little town of Troy to walk the common.

My Daily Walks 2-12 &2-13

I have missed my daily walk these  last two days. The busyness of the schedule  and the severe cold have given me excuses to stay far away from walking. Here is what  I did instead.

My friend Jody and I went to the travel agency to begin planning our trip to Japan and Korea.

Where  we will visit the kid in green.

Today I led worship before Deb Maciorowski preached  at Special Touch.

And I registered for next month’s  bowl-athon. My team is called Gutters for Jesus. Maybe I’ll  make up the exercise then.
