|Not that's funny!|
Thirteen men from our community went on a men's retreat this weekend. To keep us out of mischief (right) it was decided the girls should have a sleep over.

As soon as we got the guys off and some say it was like getting a child off to camp, we began our at home retreat. There was much laughter and fellowship. We learned none of us are any good at Pictionary. Creative as the group is, there was not an artist among us! It was great fun though.
In between dinner, snacks, breakfast and boat rides including a midnight cruise, there were other games. Some play for fun, others are very competitive. I am sure we novices are a thorn in the side to those serious gamers. In any case, all had a great time. We are so blessed to have a community of fun and loving friends.
As the conversation usually goes with us gals, the discussion of health and weight loss came up. As we munched on brownies but who's to know? I know you will keep our secret just between the two us!
One of our best friends is totally into fitness. We are afraid she is going to totally disappear one day. She exercises obsessively, relatively speaking, and eats very little. She declares if one runs every day for one week, they will fall in love with running,
I decided to take the challenge. I have begun running. It is more like schlepping along I guess. So far I would not call it running or jogging. I don't know yet whether I will live to love or hate. I will let you know if I make it through the week.
As I pass the lowly walkers, I tried my best to give them that superior look as runners have given me in the past. They don't have to know I am praying my next breath will not be my last and my legs have no feeling.

For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed.
