Learning vs Changing

Good Afternoon, God!

Thank You! THANK YOU for the Gift of Life! The gift of sight . . . the gift of my wonderful husband, Kit, who went jogging with me this morning. I went 2 miles . . . aiming for 3 miles one of these days.

Jogging takes discipline . . . Step 1 is just setting aside the time . . .Step 2 is then dressing, and Step 3 is getting started. Huff Puff.

Now on the other hand Learning is FUN. I signed up for 90 minutes at the Open Class at the Apple Store and was able to sign on for another 90. My Brain got so full I thought I should stand up and jump up and down to settle it. I couldn’t go the full 180 minutes but I loved what I did and what I learned

I am struck, God, by the difference between adding vastly enjoyable information to my mind and the effort of changing my behavior — for example, jogging regularly.

I’m using jogging as an example but any change of viewpoint, habit, or attitude is difficult. For example, it is getting close to my bedtime and I need to stop the joy of blogging away and away. I know that if I don’t catch my first wave of sleep — I’ll be up later than I want. I won’t get enough sleep to maintain a loving attitude. Hmm.

So, I will STOP and kiss my wonderful husband Good Night and maybe add to this tomorrow afternoon? I really do WANT to change!
