1. You may remember I talked about the subject of today’s sermon on Tuesday. Today, I was interested that Sarah pointed out the context of Paul’s words. My takeaway was that our bodies were gifts from God, and as a Spiritual Practice, we should love our bodies because that would help us love God more. There’s no such thing as too fat, or too skinny, or too brown, or too hairy. And if we love our own bodies, we can and should love other people’s bodies – black, brown, differently abled, athletic, or klutzy.
2. As special music a soloist sang “Sacred the Body.” Apparently it is a hymn in the Presbyterian “Glory to God” hymnal. It’s also available from the UMC Discipleship resource. The words are copywrited so I won’t print them here, but you should look it up if you can. I really was impressed with it.
3. All the walking I did yesterday was helpful in that I lost 4.5 pounds from Saturday morning to this morning! No sunburn, either.
4. Spent the afternoon with my feet up watching old episodes of West Wing. A little nap was probably taken during that time as well.
5.I treated myself to a vente skinny mocha to eat with the last of my scones on the strength of the weight loss. I probably put it all back on with that.
How about you? What made you happy today?
