The first thing that hits me when I think of nine months is the time it takes a little human life to fully form and then enter into the world. A lot can happen in nine months.
Nine months ago today, I began on a journey to make some serious changes in my life. The first change was to totally stop drinking any alcohol. That one change started a chain reaction. Shortly after that I joined Crunch Fitness and started reclaiming my physical life. I dropped 18 pounds and honestly am looking pretty good for an old man. Gayle regularly tells me how nice I look. A neighbor just said last night, you look muscular!
Spiritually, I can’t begin to tell you the changes that have occurred with a fresh surrender and willingness to follow the Leader in whatever He leads me to do. This weekend I felt the most alive, present and connected than I ever recall.
I am amazed myself at all that has transpired over these nine months. I’m humbled and thankful for God’s grace to me. I’m grateful He gives us choice and opportunity to move from belief to action.
Finally, I’m thankful for a loving and supportive partner in life, and for a group of men who I am thrilled to be doing life with. I’m not sure what is next for me but I believe the best is yet to come!
