Aha! A Thursday night with no yoga class and nothing to do but get a jump on SPF this week. Kristine is being all tricky again and trying to make us think. Damn, girl, don't we have to think enough as it is with our jobs and our kids? So we aren't allowed to use our kids or our pets. This week's assignment is:
1. Your Freedom
2. Your Hope
3. Your Wish
My freedom is getting time by myself to do what I like, which most often comes in the form of yoga. Twice a week for an hour it's all about me. This is my latest yoga challenge...inversions. I'm facing my fear of falling over (by using the wall first).
Dontcha just love the silly wireless remote in my hand, which is giving me some bad headstand form. I guess this isn't a very attractive pose. But look how much FUN I'm having!
My hope is absolutely in the big JC. Because of Him and His grace, I have absolute hope for the future, here and after life. Not just "I hope I'm going to heaven, because I'm a good person." Cuz I'm NOT a good person. More like "I know I'm cool with God because JC is my right-hand-man."
The underlined verse is Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."
Ok now my wish. Seriously, my wish is that I was skinny. Well skinni-ER anyway. For now, I would settle for being able to fit nicely into this dress again.
I know it doesn't look like much, but it's a couple sizes smaller than I am right now. Back in 2000 after my dad died I joined Weight Watchers and lost 30 lbs and I remember being SO excited when I bought this dress. Well haven't been there for a long time. I've got the exercise thing down, it's the starvation part I can't quite master. But I'm not ready to commit to something like WW again, so who knows when that dress will finally fit.
