Not sure I've mentioned this on my blog, but on Monday of this week I decided I had to do more in my goal to get healthy this year. I need to lose weight, get back down to where I was in 2005, but mostly I just want to get stronger and more flexible. Use it or lose it. So, in addition to three days a week of Wii Fit Yoga (30 minutes each) and five to six days of Wii Fit aerobics or cycling (20-30 minutes each), I've joined Curves for the much needed resistance (aka weight) training combined with cardio. I'm still feeling those extra pounds I put on over the summer, but I'm also feeling more energy after a week in my new routine. Always a good thing.
On my return home yesterday morning, maybe around 7:15, after my stop at Moxie Java for a non-fat chai tea (yum), I turned into my subdivision and saw a beautiful crescent moon and the morning star hanging low in the sky. By the time I could drive into the garage, run into the house and get my camera, and get back outside, the sky had lightened a bit more, but I think you can still see what a beautiful sight it was (click photo for larger version).
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.” (Rev. 22:16)
PS Can anyone tell me the movie where I heard the crescent moon called "God's thumbnail"? I can hear a kid's voice saying it, but I can't for the life of me remember the name of the movie where I saw/heard that line.
