It’s hard to believe that another week has rolled by. Last weekend, it was rainy and cold. This weekend was hot and humid. I woke up and went for a three mile walk with 1 mile run this morning. When I got back to the house, I said to Pam, “This morning I am thankful that our house and the church have air-conditioning.” Yesterday we got into the low 90’s and made it into the 90’s again today. It was 72 degrees at 5:15 this morning when I went out for my walk. Currently the temp is 91. The good thing is that we got some rain this past week. It has been extremely dry over the last couple of weeks. I commented that I’ve worn my sunglasses more in the last couple of weeks than I wore them in total in Eldred.
As I wrote in my running update yesterday, I am making good progress in the running department and already have 29 miles for the month. I am currently in a running streak, meaning that I plan to run at least a mile every day between Memorial Day and Independence Day. Today marked day 7. I’m really hoping to make it the whole way and not develop injuries like happened last time, but that was several years ago. It is getting tough to run on these warm mornings, but I’ll keep pressing on.
This past week we celebrated Memorial Day – we remembered the day at church on Sunday and then we were invited over as guests for a cookout on Monday. We had fun and had hot dogs, hamburgers, and corn on the cob. It was my first corn on the cob of the season.
The first Wednesday of June is Global Running Day. I changed up my routine so that I would run one of my longer runs on Wednesday. It’s funny because the first Friday of June is National Doughnut Day.
Friday, Pam and I went out on a date. It’s been way too long since we have been out by ourselves. We took a trip to Salisbury and went to Applebee’s and used a gift card that we had received several months ago. We also went to the mall. It’s the first time we’ve been to the mall since last summer. We had gone to the Olean Mall to get some running shoes – which was one of the reasons we were headed there again.
I’ll admit, it’s a little surreal. It’s weird going into places without a mask on. Pam and I had a great day on Friday and it was nice to get out. ‘
Like I said, we woke up to some warm temps this morning. It seems there was quite a bit to get done before worship. We had a good worship service today. The Journey has a great worship team and I enjoy leading them. We received communion this morning and it was a special time. Following worship, we had a meeting for Vacation Bible School. We are going to use the Go Fish Guys “Backstage with the Bible.” I love the songs and I love the lessons. We had a great crew show up for the meeting and everyone is excited about it. We are looking forward to sharing the gospel with the boys and girls of Millsboro.
I think that about wraps up the week. So God bless, and Seize the Day!
