Once upon a sunny Saturday… hard to believe that it’s the last Saturday of February as I write this.
When I originally started this #3GoodThings series, I envisioned it to be a 40-day experiment. Depending on who you ask, “they” seem to say that it takes somewhere between 30 and 40 days to build a habit – hence my initial goal.
Now, however, as I see day 40 fast approaching, I find myself wondering whether I’ll keep going or leave it at that original number. Hmmm… TBD.
In the meantime, here are..
- I mentioned a few days ago that I’d finished the book that started this series… well, today I began journaling it. It’s an eBook so as I’ve come across portions that particularly stand out to me, I highlight them in the eBook. Now I’m just going through and rewriting those quotes into my journal. It feels good. I haven’t done that for a long time. One December, several years ago, I went on a frenzy and, in the space of 40 days, read & journaled 11 books. Good memory… seems eons ago! 🙂
- Dominic & I spent some time down at the church today, puttering around the yard: me trimming shrubs & him lugging some of the remaining branches from our big hedge-trim last November. It was lovely to spend a bit of time with him. He’s a fine young man with a great spirit!
- Over the past several days, I’ve been back in contact with a young man that I had the privilege of baptizing back on May 19, 2013. Had kind of lost track of him since coming to France, but a short video of his baptism is the very first thing on my phone’s camera roll… I’ve never wanted to forget that day. How cool to be back in touch!
