When it comes to exercise, this time of year presents a double challenge. More office parties, family feasts, and gatherings around goodies make it harder to exercise healthy eating habits. More errands to run, presents to wrap, functions to attend, and fewer hours of daylight make it harder to exercise our bodies. Yet, the more we exercise self-control and move our bodies, the better we feel in the long run.
My friends Linda and Dalene offer an EXERCISE challenge each day this week in Words to Live By (pages 73-78). This is one i would like to add to my daily routine: "Today, choose to be fit for the King by exercising your spiritual muscles. See how many steps you can take toward love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Keep in step with the Spirit and see how much better you feel at the end of the day!"

we are loved and chosen by God,
may we live like we believe it,
