Lately, though, I have been having conversations and thinking about things. It is true that my body has been given to me by God and I should cherish it as such. I don't do drugs, abuse alcohol, etc., and so far, that has been enough for me. This Lent, however, I have been concentrating more on the fasting aspect and, to my surprise, it works for me. It is when I push myself and limit or deny myself that I feel closer to the cross. I like that.
For now, it's 2 miles at a time. Usually 13- or 14-minute miles but, hey, that is still two miles ;0)
