ten things

well, I don't know if any one is reading this (or if it's even interesting) but this a list of things I've done over the past few days that equal vacation:
1. Went to a minor league baseball game.
2. Sat by a pool and pondered life while connecting with my inner Charles Spurgeon
3. Began Fyodor Dostoevsky's "The Idiot" (no, it's not about me)
4. went to a local gym to watch a pro-am basketball league...saw two NBA players - for FREE
5. Run daily along a river front (yes I actually enjoy this though I broke my vacation rule...set the alarm to get today's run over with)
6. Read the morning paper with starbucks in hand at a local park (saw the brightest red cardinal I've ever seen and some black bird with bright red and yellow wing markings - who knew, I'm a bird watcher).
7. Read through half of Genesis (noting altars, covenants, journeys, and relationships - I smell a sermon series)
8. Talked with both of my boys on the phone
9. written a chapter and a half of a book I hope you'll soon see.
10. A couple of quiet walks with Sara.

What up next? Who knows...maybe golf a show at a local for a nap...yes a nap at 10:09 a.m.!

Sounds wonderful! And I hope it's refreshing for body and soul.

Who were the NBA guys? I'd be more impressed, frankly, if you had said NFL. :)

Ya Mike, those birds are called red wing blackbirds.Who woulda thunk! Isn't it cool to take a nap, then get up for lunch? Have a great restful time.

Your day reminded me of a poem I recently read. These verses come to mind,Today is the most important day of my life. It is God's gift to me and it is all I have. Tomorrow with all its joys,sorrows,triumphs and troubles isn't here yet. Therefore I will not worry about tomorrow.Today is what God has entrusted to me.
Thank you Mike. It was/is a great day.

Just because there aren't many comments don't think no one is reading your blog. Never miss it. Praying you will have sweet times of fellowship with the Lord (and Sara)!
