After meditating, excite your brain with walking prayers - no minimum speed.

Micah6.8 - do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with your God.

Millions of us use the Revised Common Lectionary readings each week:


There are daily readings that complement the weekly readings:


please note that M-W readings look back at last Sunday's texts, Th-Sa look ahead to the next Sunday's texts.

My Goals:
Meeting new people, encouraging others, walk @least 5 miles a week, lose 59 pounds by Mar2015, find a healthy church of disciples of Jesus and function like the family we are. Simple, eh?

My Program:
Team challenges, daily sparking, co-op w/ VA doctors, simplify my life, practical help to neighbors I meet in this life. Listen to bible audio at bedtime helps too!

Personal Information:
I love to cook and bake, but I live for BBQ. Hahaha it ain't BBQ if it ain't smoked ;-)

I fingerpick guitar, since 1973 (hero:Chet Atkins, bb king). Play piano (fav: ragtime, Edvard Grieg). Blow coronet & trombone (fav: wynton marsalis, chuck mangione) and still enjoy Earth,Wind and Fire; Pink Floyd; Stevie Ray Vaughn -- incl' Mary had a little lamb.
I also really dig Stephen Curtis Chapman, Chuck Girard and Love Song, Larry Norman, and of course Keith Green

Other Information:
"When life gives you a bunch of lemons, make orange juice and leave them wondering" -- Instagram fm my niece.

I am a broken caregiver of my disabled wife; since my stroke/drain bamage [you can smile at that, ironic THe Wink] in Dec'08.

Who says God has no sense of humor? He made me, didn't he?

    DAJODU, the whole thing about Don Gloves reminded me of another word play:

    I was listening to NPR where a marine biologist was being interviewed. Her name was Helen Scales.

    Another was about a renowned sleep study scientist who authored "Brain Rules". He wrote, "Dreaming permits each and every one of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives." The author's name is Will Dement. (okay, William, but still...)

    Thank you for the goodie and encouraging note. I call it power walking because you can pray for yourself and others as you walk . There is Power in Prayer. Keep looking up! Polly from your walking team.
