This week marks one entire year since I began the journey of taking control of my health and my weight.
For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
Recently, I’ve been thinking about the concept of being still – of conscientiously training my heart, mind, and soul to contemplate and meditate on both the transcendent and the immanent aspects of His nature and applying them to my world, my life, my family, and my day.
"It is important for our children to know that history is not primarily the story of man, it is the story of man inside of the story and display of the sovereignty of God."

Recently, I have been reading through the Gospel of Mark. About once a week, I take a few minutes of my quite time and read one chapter slowly and thoughtfully – my pen poised to underline anything that catches my heart. This is what I was doing a few mornings ago…
