Remembering the importance of living – and walking – each day

The female DG’s blog focus has long been on “jogging at dawn,” first chronicled on First Blush, with the male DG doing the photo duties until his diagnosis of glioma four years ago curtailed his morning outings. She shifted to Gimpy and Grumpy a year ago, leading up to and following surgery to repair her partially torn Achilles tendon. Lately she’s been thinking that her dawn musings are vastly unimportant and that she’d return to chronicling how she and the male DG (dual gimpy and grumpy) are making every attempt to live each day. But she while she got off to an OK good start, she’s fallen short the last two days. And there were opportunities, such as today’s outing to photograph a spectacular new residence for InMenlo, which brought out the shutterbug in the male DG (post to go live next week).

I’ve been thinking about Chris this past week, and chose the devotional at Vestry with him in mind. 2 Corinthians 4:13-5:5.
