Describe Your Amazing Day

America's Spirit Is AMAZING!
America's Spirit Is AMAZING!

Bet you have amazing days once in awhile, right? Not talking about a good day, or even a pretty good day. The difference here is that we describe the day as AMAZING!

Can you picture one of your AMAZING days? What made it AMAZING? Did you have to work at it, or did it just come naturally.

Sunday was an AMAZING day! You heard Monday that I may or may not share why. Well, here’s why:

Lector at Church.  Plus, served as “Narrator” at Church for Passion Sunday. (To serve God during Easter is AMAZING)

Short but good core workout at Gold’s Gym before lunch. (Brief, but important workout didn’t get postponed)

Good business meeting after lunch. (working on Family project every Sunday since October)

Then, another great meeting with an old friend that we twice bred our first Lab with. (hadn’t seen Brian in 25 years)

Short 20-minute nap. (a rare, highly-coveted treat)

Then Cub Scout Awards banquet, watching our son receive his Bear Cub award. (teaching a child values and confidence is priceless)

To top it all off, movie night, watching “The Blind Side”. (Precious family time on a touching, thought-provoking movie)

A day so full of balance, worship, family time, and meaningful activity.

A day so rare, it was AMAZING!

Not Gonna Do It

Yesterday, I thought I might share what made the day so amazing. Looking at the clock, I really need to head out the door right now.

The birds are chirping, a sure sign that dawn will give way to daybreak soon.

The moon is setting.  Most people have no idea what this means.

Wanted to run 5-miles this morning. There’s time for two. Five will have to wait.

Am so thankful to be alive and have the ability to run and the ability (and desire) to write.

Editor’s note: The following You Tube video was shot immediately following the two-mile run you just read about. There’s actually a decent message about excellence that will only benefit those with drive, passion, discipline and focus.

Amazing Days, A Dime A Dozen

Do You Count The Days?
Do You Count The Days?

They come along with various frequencies.

Amazing days.

How frequently do they come along for you?

Define amazing, right?  Feel free to use your own definition.

By my definition, yesterday was amazing.

And I mean more amazing than usual.

It was Passion Sunday.

Maybe it was just a coincidence.

And maybe tomorrow, it will feel like something I should share.

Skip’s Simple Challenge To Us

This Happens Every Day
This Happens Every Day

Skip Gaskill is back for a simple, but thought-provoking challenge.  Take it away Skip:

When was the last time you woke up early to watch a sunrise?

I mean woke up just to watch a sunrise (and not to go to work or school).

Never?!  Try it some time.  Few things are as beautiful or as inspiring as a new day sunrise.

Do your heart, mind & soul a favor.

You deserve it.
