have a little faith in me

so first off today was often do you have those days when you feel like you had a truly great day that you really just want to tell everyone about? for me that is iffy...normally if work is great you work too late & then home is hectic or maybe worse, you leave work right at 5 only to come home and suddenly look at the time and wonder how it got to be 11 o'clock and where the three ice cream sandwich wrappers you notice on the coffee table went...

today was one of the best days with our personal trainer greer.  first the company is always great. two amazing friends [rachel and carrie] and my terrific sister in law [ann hughston] come over a few days a week to pay to get our butts whipped into shape. the four mile walk in just at 45 minutes was our first pat on the back only to be subjected to the hardest class we've ever done which afterwards seemed like a breeze [carrie seriously earned the gold star tonight]! to top it off zoe's treat for dinner and an ice cold dc.  yum! the closing of the time with greer always involves us laying down for a few moments [30 seconds probably] and catching our breath and just closing our eyes while greer gives us an inspirational message. 

tonight was a bit from Colossians 3 though they aren't always Biblical tid-bits this was resonated well with me. maybe because i still have four days worth of discipleship reading to finish by wednesday and i am blogging instead or maybe because preceding the verse from today was one of the verses from our wedding [Colossians 3:12-17] but nonetheless i will share the end of my great day with you all and hopefully i get some more reading done so i don't feel the need to fess up during "prayers & concerns" time on wednesday with why i have an half empty discipleship workbook.  

to each their own but surviving twenty somethings involves not only having faith in yourself and those you love but more importantly keeping the faith in whatever higher power you believe in...

"Whatever your task, put yourselves into it, as done for the Lord and not for men, since you know that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as you reward you serve the Lord Christ. For the wrongdoer will be paid back for whatever wrong has been done and there is no partiality.  Masters, treat your slaves justly and fairly for you know that you also have a Master in heaven.  Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving.  At the same time pray for us as well that God will open us a door for the word, that we may declare the mystery of Christ, for which I am in prison, so that I may reveal the clarity as I should.  Conduct yourselves wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone." Colossians 3:23-4:6
