These past couple of days have been a far cry from the windy blizzards that were here at the beginning of last month. And with this I think that my attitude had climbed with the temperatures. There is something magical about the first could of warm days that makes people want to get outside, and I am no exception.
Last Saturday Eden and I went to Baker park and walked the park, played on playgrounds, pet dogs, made new friends, took pictures, and she fell asleep 100 years before we got back in the car to go home. For the past 2 days I have been able to dust off the bike and get a couple of road rides in, and I hope that I can do the same today.
I have been telling Katie that i have NEEDED to get out for the past little bit, but I don’t know that I realized how much I needed to get out to do something physical. The days after a ride I wake up sore, but I am also mentally less tired and more ready to face whatever the day will bring. I feel like I am less grouchy and so much more productive.
Many times we talk about the need to get our and find rest through Sabbath. It is times like this that I realize the real value in letting your soul rest in things that set it free. What a blessing this weather has been. I hope it continues.
1 My heart is confident in you, O God; no wonder I can sing your praises! Wake up, my soul!Psalms 108:1 (NLT)
