Balancing — Falling Down and Getting Back Up

Ear Chart at our Hawaii Kai Costco

Good Morning, God!

All I could think of as I looked at this chart was: We are fearfully and wonderfully made. We are! You have done a marvelous job, God, and I am thankful!

I noticed on this chart that the ear is not just an organ of hearing but also of balance. Ah, Balance! If ever we need a good solid sense of balance it is during Life’s Little Transition Periods — like Kit getting hearing aids yesterday.

Our Entire Being has been designed by You to improve with exercise and with proper care. Improve at any age! That’s the Good News. The Bad News is it involves Effort and Hard Work. OK, OK! Not HARD as in the Chinese workers we saw carrying iron rebars on their shoulders up the side of a mountain. That’s Hard Work.

Perhaps it is more a matter of diligence and discipline, God. Practicing to the point of fatigue — keeping on . . . keeping on. But, it isn’t just keeping on.  It is also rotating what we do. Balancing, weights, aerobics, stretching, relaxing. And that’s just for the body.

Our Mind needs exercise too. We CAN grow new brain cells — with focused application. Kit and I are both “playing” Lumosity and there are times when my Brain actually Hurts. Playing until I hurt is the Point! Getting better is a by-product.

Then there are our Hearts and Souls to exercise too. Praying, Loving, Forgiving, Encouraging — and saying NO. That means Accepting and even Setting Limits. It means Balancing Doing with Being. Balancing Work with Rest. Balancing Time Together with Time Alone.

And in all of this We are In Charge. No Bosses. No external deadlines. No grades. Yikes! Please help me learn to help myself.
