—Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Morning and Evening (29 November, Morning: "Bridle the Tongue")
Really need to do better in this, to be both more honoring to others in my speech and more silent when that's what's best. God's calling me to obey Him in that, and His power makes it possible to do so. What's called for is not achievement but dependence. Will I acknowledge and depend on His authority in my speech?
Decided last night that I don't like my weight or being out of shape, so taking steps to do something about that. There are an overwhelming number of approaches, which makes sifting through things its own challenge. Even so, being paralyzed at the onset of such a herculean task is counterproductive, so I'm taking some small, common sense steps right away: a little exercise, some tightening of what and how much food I'm eating, running a bit along Burke-Gilman. I'm not a gym type, or a diet type, but it's early to rule anything out, either.
Meeting up with gracegiver and pinkroo yesterday was great fun. We had a delicious lunch at Queen Sheba and rich conversation. These are wonderful women with whom I was honored to spend time.
