Thursday Morning

And I need to be out of here in a few minutes to get to church by 5:00 a.m. I made a commitment in March to go there every Thursday morning from 5 to 6 a.m. - for a year - and sit in quiet prayer. It is almost 6 months now. I really enjoy this hour. Sometimes getting up at 3:15 feels like a chore, but that is good too.

I run 5 days a week - but Thursday is now a rest day. The photo was from my after run stretch yesterday. I get the biggest kick out of these shoes, to me they look like space ships with all the gleaming metallic surfaces! They feel good though.

"A clear light seems to fall upon us all - when we open our eyes. Since our blindness is caused by our own defects, we must first deeply realize what they are. Constructive meditation is the first requirement for each new step in our spiritual growth." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 10

MC, I bet you can run smokin fast in those babys! I think that I could benefit from an hour of Adoration a week as well. I would have difficulty sitting quietly that long. It would be excellent spiritual exercise!

(love those socks)

Fancy shoes and cuteness socks.

Funny how we humans have trouble just being quiet for an hour.

Sometimes?!?!? I am dumbfounded.

BTW, do you realize that we have the same blogging name? "Namenlosen Trinker" = "Anonymous Alcoholic."
