Every Day for A Month
I've posted here on my blog daily since January 24th, more than a whole month in a row. That's pretty good. I've been receiving grace (via co-conspirators) to keep up quite a few daily disciplines lately, that have for long stretches of various sections of my past eluded me:
- Prayer (at least ten minutes alone while not doing anything else)
Accountability: five other ladies on Facebook private group.
- Bible reading (several chapters - reading the whole thing this year)
Accountability: a group of about seven other people on Facebook, sometimes dwindling to three active people - but hey, I only need one.
- Flossing & mouthwash at night in addition to brushing
Accountability: my son, with whom I'm writing stories one word at a time as rewards.
Accountability: that would be you guys. So...any lurkers who'd care to delurk by commenting on a post in the next week? Who's reading? Say hi. If you don't mind.
I know: how can these things be listed together, right? Sacrilege. But still, they're all things in which I want to engage every day (though the blogging isn't as important). Now, if only I could add some three-times-a-week exercise. Guess I need to find people to do that with as well. Preferably in person. Low-key amateur tennis, walking/hiking outside, low-impact aerobics, anyone I know locally? Then the real challenge: finding time in the schedule between other regular meetings and lessons and chores and ferrying, and meshing schedules with another person (or several). Maybe someday. For now, I'm happy to be practicing these particular rewarding doses of daily discipline.
