The other day I said that all of Saul's sons died in battle with him. Today as I read 2nd Samuel 2, I found out that I was wrong. One of Saul's sons survived and took the throne over Israel as David took the throne over Judah. In today's passage they fought their first battle for complete control of both. Anyway, just wanted to retract my false information that I said the other day.
An amusing thing happened today while I was working out. I lost it. I was doing this incredibly hard workout video by The Firm. The instructor was smiling and perky. The other girls on the video also NEVER stopped smiling. They all had big, white, shiny teeth. They were tan, with ripped abs. They all had great hair. At one point as I am dripping sweat and gasping for breath I became angry. (It felt a little like road rage) - This is hard. How can they be grinning like it's easy? - I started yelling at the girls on the T.V. (about as useful as yelling at other drivers) It was pretty funny, but I'm seriously struggling with having a positive attitude about working out. I am at that point where I am not seeing lots of results yet, and I am bored with working out by myself, but cannot afford a gym membership. Pray for me to stick it out, this is usually the phase where I give up and quit.
I will be back in school in less than a month. Pray that I will be able to get the house ready to go back on the market by then. Still lots and lots to do.
Reading back through this, I sound a little whiny. Life is good, I just feel a little overwhelmed and discouraged by all that needs to be done. Knowing women, we feel like this most of the time. Life is always too busy to get everything done.
