Who came up the the expression, “You’re making a mountain out of a mole hill?” I think it was a friend of an overweight beginning jogger. There were some uneven pavement squares on the sidewalk today that seemed like The White Cliffs of Dover.
As I was driving to work, trying to decide where to jog today, I saw a guys jogging down Central Ave along the shops in Plaza Midwood. I thought, I’ll run there too! As I headed down The Plaza towards Central I saw just how busy it was. I thought to myself, “Do I really want to run in front of all those people?” Instead, I turned around and ran through the neighborhood. I dealt will issues of pride and caring about with others think of me as I ran this morning. In some respect, I shouldn’t have cared what the morning drivers thought…but I did. Also, as I’m said before, at http://www.eades-fedup.blogspot.com (my former post home) I know that I am overweight; thus the jogging.
I also took time to appreciate the homes in the neighborhood. Hopefully, I’ll eventually get to know these people as friends, maybe even church-members. That’s my prayer, anyway.
Finally, I took my early morning start as an opportunity to start a new daily devotional, “Tozer on Christian Leadership.” I think it will prove beneficial.
