End of Week Review 4/22/2017

Last week was Easter weekend. Some see it as a three day weekend, while others see it as a reminder of the salvation Jesus offers us. It is far more than Easter egg hunts, candy in baskets, and pretty tulips popping up in gardens. What is it to you?

It's been tough getting posts up on time since I was on the hospital a month ago. I am still recovering from my hospital trip, but feeling better each week. Who knew it would knock the wind out of me like this? I must heed the advice I give others: take care of yourself so you can take care of others. That is exactly what I've had to do. Sometimes it has been sleeping in or taking a nap, but I've worked out four days this week. Our recent trip to Florida was a challenge for me, but it helped build up my endurance. We traveled back on a Monday a couple of weeks ago, so Tuesday seemed like Monday. Thank you for your kind patience!

I took a little time out on our trip to visit the Mission Aviation tent at Sun-n-Fun Fly-in in Lakeland, Florida. The site was buzzing with activity as people came up to see the medical rescue plane and the supply plane from Mission Aviation Fellowship. Some of the other aviation missions groups were New Tribes Missions, and JAARS. Since they were busy, I didn't get to interview anyone. I can tell you they have to be physically fit enough to handle emergencies quickly, load and unload supplies, and keep their weight from taking up space for precious fuel. A gallon of fuel weighs 6 lbs.  There is a total load capacity for these planes, which includes pilot and passenger weight. If someone on the plane is obese, they take away what is needed for fuel and supplies. Usually, missionaries eat local foods in the areas they serve. Third world countries don't have as much processed foods, nor are junk foods prevalent. They also walk a lot more than people here. These missions organizations need people called by God to serve in this vital ministry: pilots, mechanics, administrative, teachers, and medical staff. Is God calling you to serve?

In case you missed them:






Warm Weather is Here

Since the weather is warming up, I bet you are spending more time outdoors for your exercise. Keep these things in mind:
1. Drink water to avoid dehydration. The humidity in the air can fool you into believing you aren't dehydrating when you are.
2. Wear Sunscreen and sunglasses. More and more I hear about people having cancerous and precancerous moles removed.
3. Pet parents don't always put their fur babies on leashes. Some of those fur babies have teeth and are willing to use them to guard their families!
4. Dress in layers. The sun can fool you into thinking it is warmer out than what it really is.  It is easy to take your jacket off and tie the sleeves around your waist.
5. Wear appropriate shoes for your activity. Wear running shoes for running your 5k, cross trainers if you are doing fitness walking, and walkers or hiking shoes for long walks or hikes. Your feet will thank you!

Have a blessed weekend!
