24 hours...

"But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, 
so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. 
We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first."
Hebrews 3:13-14

There is one remaining day in Alaska for me.  Hoping and praying it will be the best one yet even though they have all been wonderful to this point.
While I have wanted to keep a consistency on posting my days' events, it has come down to having begun several drafts and posting too few in completion.

People befriended.
Hope restored.
And so much more...

Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down,
I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written. 
John 21:25

When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
