etc.& [CAUMC] devotional: intimacy with God [2007-04-10]
Coming in early meant I could leave early, which meant I could go to the gym and then meet Tiffany for coffee at 5:30 -- rescheduled from 6:30 so that I could go to young adult small group, rescheduled from Thursday because Trelawney's going to Jesus Christ Superstar
with Cambridge Welcoming.
I did the Cross-Country program on the elliptical today, and it kicked my ass way harder than it had on Saturday. Maybe because I've been away from the gym for a few days? Even resistance 8 and 10, which were previously easy were a challenge. (2.28 miles in 30 minutes.) Am going to rethink my weekly workout schedule to work up to this.
I treated myself to a fruit smoothie afterward. The day's special was avocado-banana. Not something I ever would have thought of. Wasn't bad, though.
Coffee with Tiffany was nice. We talked about me a lot. I would have preferred a long discourse on sexual ethics or something, but I'm okay with getting-to-know you sessions. In talking about possibly pursuing more structured religious study, she said BU gives scholarships to basically anyone with a brain and also said that it comforts her that you can always try something and then quit, that you are not stuck in a career for the rest of your life or anything.
I backdated private entries for all the church writeups I still need to finish, 'cause this seemed less unwieldy than the ever-growing gmail draft I've got going on. And also because I've recently been feeling like I actually wanna post current writeups but it messes with the ordering, so this solves that dilemma. (Yes, I know I'm a little bit crazy.) ... It's 36 entries. Given that it's 2+ months of ~4 church events each week I guess that number isn't all that huge, but still. This of course guarantees that no one
will read them, but I'm okay with that.
(I also did some backtagging -- April 2003. The data organization is somewhat overwhelming, but oh, I had so much joy
then. And I think I really did appreciate it, which is a comfort to me.)( CAUMCCollapse )
