On Being Shown Up By Old Ladies

I'm trying to be intentional about exercising and living a less sedentary lifestyle. I've been using a TotalGym as well as walking to the park, around it, and back to the house. It's the walk around the park that is most humbling. I make sure that I use the TotalGym when no one else is around.

I can't really run or jog due to a bum knee. So I try to walk as briskly as I can. And every morning at the park I get passed by these two, tiny, white haired ladies.

:::sigh:::

I think a Wii Fit is what the doctor has ordered. Right? Hmm...

Praise For Creation And Providence

I sing the mighty power of God,
that made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad,
and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained
the sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at God's command,
and all the stars obey.

I sing the goodness of the Lord,
who filled the earth with food,
Who formed the creatures through the Word,
and then pronounced them good.
Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed,
wherever I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread,
or gaze upon the sky.

There's not a plant or flower below,
but makes Thy glories known,
And clouds arise, and tempests blow,
by order from Thy throne;
While all that borrows life from Thee
is ever in Thy care;
And everywhere that we can be,
Thou, God art present there.

~Isaac Watts

Spent yesterday at Venice Beach. It was so good to be back in the ocean. I hadn't been in years. I didn't want to leave. The vastness, power, and beauty can be overwhelming. What a wonderful Maker...

Using Ubuntu Lucid Lynx Beta 1

(Click on image for larger version.)

As usual, I'm finding a Linux beta release to be brilliant and stable, much more so than a final release of a proprietary OS.
