Daily Post #112

Walk and Jog: I have not jogged for a long time. However, I want to get in better shape. Usually, my ankles hurt when I jog, so I have looked for other ways to exercise. However, yesterday was the first time I tried to jog since getting a new pair of shoes that provide a good amount of cushion. I was so happy to finish a 2–3 mile route where I walked for about half of the time and jogged the other half. It was a significant step for me. I have realized as of late that I spend ample time caring for my soul but not my body. Yet, all is spiritual—everything matters to the Lord. It brings me joy that I have begun to take an important step toward holistic health.

Red-bellied Woodpecker: My wife has done a wonderful job directing our focus to nature, God’s handiwork. We have two beautiful birdhouses in the backyard and our kiddos are constantly on the watch for birds. Today we had the rare privilege of looking at a Red-bellied Woodpecker. Wow!

Duolingo: I am more and more convinced of the value of Duolingo for learning a language. My family uses it and it is fun. I am currently focusing on Spanish. After two years of Spanish in High School and 13 hours of Spanish in undergraduate work (required by UMKC), I realize that I have a wonderful foundation from which to work. I want to get an official certification at the beginner level, then the intermediate, then advanced over the next couple of years. My wife and kids are focusing on French, which has been nightmarish for me. I can’t “hear” half of the sounds; it is very difficult for me although I am going to keep trying.
