Baptism vs. Rapture

Day 8, I suppose, of Walking and Blogging. I got my 10,000 steps in today, and here go some words. Not 10,000 of them, though. So, yesterday I neither got all my steps nor blogged. Last evening, when I got home from a pastoral emergency call, I gave myself the day off from both. I … Continue reading Baptism vs. Rapture

I’m a Bit of a Fan

Day 7 of Walking and Blogging. Uhhh. Okay. Maybe just Blogging today. So, on day 7 I failed to get my 10,000 steps in. I have two excuses. One, it is stupidly hot and humid, and I am tired of being drenched in sweat. And two, a new game was released today for the iPad. … Continue reading I’m a Bit of a Fan

Funerals are Good

Day 6 of Walking and Blogging. I got 11,804 steps in so far today, and I'm about to blog. So, a successful day 6. The local funeral home is less than a half mile from my church. I generally walk there when I have a funeral. This evening, I had a viewing to attend, and … Continue reading Funerals are Good

Books and Faith

Day 5 of Walking and Blogging. >10,000 steps per day and >1 word in the blog per day. I really didn't think I'd make it today. I was grumpy a lot of the day. (So was my daughter, for that matter, and I'm not sure if they're connected or not.) I was a little too … Continue reading Books and Faith

Too Much

Day 4 of Walking and Blogging, getting 10,000 steps on my FitBit and some amount of words on this blog. Today wasn't a great day in terms of my mood. I have a pinch of social anxiety, and it manifested this afternoon when the whole extended family, including all four kids, were at my house. … Continue reading Too Much

The Giant Walk

Day 3 of my month of "Walking and Blogging." I'm trying to get at least 10,000 steps in each day, and then blog about it that evening. It was a lovely day today with my family -- playground and ice cream and pool and dinner with my sister, my brother-in-law, and my two nephews. (Plus … Continue reading The Giant Walk

How to Want What you Want to Want

Day 2 of my "Walking and Blogging" month. I am trying to walk no less than 10,000 steps each day, and then blog about my experience in the evening. I knew today would be a tough one. I stayed up too late last night, clicking through an internet rabbit hole. I spent most of today … Continue reading How to Want What you Want to Want

Walking and Blogging

I used to be really good about walking. I used to get 12,000 steps every day, for years. Sure, there were a few days here and there when I failed. But for the most part, I hit my goal almost every day. When I first started this about fifteen years ago, I lost over fifty … Continue reading Walking and Blogging
