For me, vacation and running seem to go hand in hand. I love being outside and having a look around. Walking is nice but tends to take a looong time. Thus, my lack of patience causes jogging.
I’m always amazed how repetition of anything brings increased ease. Before long I’m going farther… faster. Good habits like eating well, reading (especially the Bible), writing, painting… increase in appetite as I feed them. Neglected, they shrivel.
My husband and I feel close. For 28 years we’ve used the word “connected.” Yet, when we get away alone and focus one on one, old sparks ignite. It’s always a marvel the rejuvenation God brings. Ah, the wonders of sewing and reeping.
It all reminds me to live -with purpose. Think before I speak, or do. Seek God moment by moment for direction on where to use my energies. Because what I feed today will grow tomorrow. And, whatever I’m growing will be weighed and judged someday.
What are you sprouting?
