The last few months have been awfully confusing to me. It’s made me realize that this life is not for the weak. Thank God for God.

My friend Bobby passed, like I said earlier, and three days later I’m welcoming my first granddaughter into the world. Then later in the week Gerda, a wonderful Haitian woman I met and just loved her spirit when I was there, had a stroke and died. I’m really confused with what to do about Haiti so please pray. And I’m really aware of the uncertainty of life.

John Piper, one of my absolute favorite authors and preachers said, “I am fully aware that I stand on the edge of eternity”. That means, he realizes that any second he could leave this life and enter eternity. Humbling to say the least.

It’s funny how old habits kick in so easily. I haven’t been eating great nor have I exercised like I should. It’s almost one a.m., and I’m seriously thinking of heading up to Planet Fitness, but I think I’d regret it tomorrow. But I’ve learned one thing: No guilt. If I fall off the wagon, dust myself off and get back on. It’s really that simple.

As much change that has been going around, the same amount remains the same. Old habits come back, old relationships come back, old songs stir old feelings. Kind of poetic in a way. Yet kind of freaky.

I’m trying to slow it down a little and enjoy this thing called life. People that believe in heaven and hell say that this life on earth is hell. I tell them that that is a crazy thought because there is way too much love and good in this life for it to be hell. We just need to slow down.

John Lennon sang, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”. That is so true, my friends. We plan, but God decides.

My weight is up 3 pounds, back to 267, but I’ll get it off. I’m not discouraged, I just need to get serious. If I’m off the wagon, it’s no guilt for me. Just get back on. My goal is to do a 5K, like Ms. Emily Alexander. It’ll happen. I put no time frame on it. Just don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.
