A Sunrise and A Chance to Acquire Some Grit

Good Day, God!

Phew! This was not my ordinary Sabbath Day! But it was GREAT! Make that, IS GREAT, as the day is only half over. I took part in the Lanikai 8K Run! And except for a minute or two toward the end — I jogged the whole time!

Not exactly a day of rest — on the other hand I was embarking on a New Form of Play — and I am very pleased. Thanks, God, that my body felt like doing it. Kit tentatively proposed my doing it a couple of days ago and he was amazed that I said, OK. I admit, I did give it a wee bit of thought –but it was clearly a love gift to Kit and to myself. Then yesterday, Kit gave me a love gift when he called to say that if the Run was weighing on me I didn’t have to do it. Imagine THAT, God!

So, this run involved an exchange of “Love Gifts” in addition to being a step forward in my Campaign of Physical Fitness. Yes, God, I know that I am frequently embarking on Campaigns. That’s what comes of being a Biological Optimist — or is it what comes of not having quite as much GRIT as I might have? Hmmm. Good point, God.

So, God, I am willing to receive a light dusting of grit. Or, if Your Hand should slip, more grit. Oh? You say that Grit isn’t so much a Gift as a Skill to be Learned and Earned. Hmmph. It is true, I vastly prefer Gifts and Easy!

Thank You, God, for this marvelous gift of life! Thank You, too for optimism and hope — and a chance to acquire some grit.
