9) Practice 12 spiritual disciplines.
June’s discipline is service. This is a perfect discipline for me coming off of May. I tend to hibernate in May since Awana is complete for the year, its between seminary classes and the kids are still in school. I do a lot of reading and gardening, but not much else. I start to feel the isolation in June, and am ready to get back into service.
“Serving typically looks as unspectacular as the practical needs it seeks to meet. That’s why serving must become a Spiritual Discipline.” (Don Whitney, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life, p. 143.)
8) Complete 12 credits toward MDiv.
Starting my summer class this week: Theology of Cultural Engagement.
7) Connect with one person a week.
5) Learn how to needle felt and create 25 sculptures.
4) Complete 12 house/yard projects.
We finally replaced the bathroom light fixture. It has been blinking off and on for years, but we knew there was a big hole behind the base that we’d need to drywall. Complete!
The front steps are nearing completion. Stephen has a little more grout to insert, the final clean, and he wants to re-stucco the sides. I have a bit of touch-up painting to do on the siding beside the stairs today.
- Garden Re-design Complete
- Linen Closet Complete
- Front steps tile almost complete…
- Bathroom light fixture replaced.
- Railings in progress…
3) Move at least 15 minutes a day.
I missed two days in the last 3 weeks, but I have been very active…which is the point.
2) Fix my teeth.
1) Hike to 12 new places.
Stephen and I biked the Snoqualmie Tunnel this weekend. We also went 2 miles down the hill and biked back up. The tunnel is an abandoned railroad tunnel that goes under Snoqualmie Pass. Its 2 miles long and completely dark. I thought it would be creepy, but it wasn’t because there were a lot of hikers and bikers inside to keep us company.
January: Hike to Twin Falls.
May: Climb Little Si.
June: Snoqualmie Tunnel
