Just keep spinning, just keep spinning...

I just completed my first spin class about an hour ago.

It was 45 minutes of intense "climbing". (There is a lot of spinning jargon I'm doing my best to figure out.) Actually, I was pretty proud of myself!

As we were leaving, Jordan said, "Mommy, why were you exercising?" I said, "I was exercising to help my body and heart stay healthy, so that I can take care of you, Ella and Daddy to the best of my ability."

God calls us to take care of our bodies, because they are His temple, the place where His Holy Spirit finds a home.

Where ever you are today, physically, remember that He has given us our bodies for a purpose, and the more we take care of them, the more appropriately we function.

Whether you have a gym membership or not, take time today to put your body to use. The healthier your heart, the more days you will have on this earth to bring glory to His name!

For His glory,


  1. How bout your glorify God and meet me n Kandy in the morning. :) Maybe not Kandy. She stood me up today. We are doing lots of temple conditioning!

  2. Maybe I should have started my day by reading your post! I enjoyed Greek Soulvaki for lunch - a whole gyro, all my fries, and a dr pepper. I seriously felt ill afterward.
    I will now be going to the basement to walk on my treadmill for an hour. Thanks for the encouragement!
