T12-17 up at 6:55. Started my day as I hope to EVERYDAY OF MY LIFE starting NEXT THURSDAY!!!!!!!! That will be the first day of my retirement. Here’s what I did… Within about 5 minutes of being up, I was sitting outside with my bible. I had a 5 or so minute prayer session and read one chapter of the bible. I hope to have even better prayer sessions and read more than one chapter of the bible… But the minimum will be at least that. I read Exodus chapter 4. Prayed with Sheila. Ran 2.06 miles, spent more time catching up on magazine reading.

Setting up chairs, ushering, handling money, etc., enjoyed it. We had a total of 353 people between the two services. God is good. I hope the people felt blessed. I certainly did. Well, that was the first day of the rest of my life… Day one of retirement. Christmas Eve. Quite different for sure. Much quieter, less hectic, than my last 35 Christmas Eve’s… I enjoyed it.

W12-30 up at 6, read Exodus 14-16. Great start to the day. Sat outside with Sheila and prayed shortly after we got up. Ran 1.52 miles. Leisure day for the most part. First complete day like this since I’ve retired. I enjoyed it.
T12-31 up at 6, read Exodus 17-19, ran 1.05 miles, went to Robin’s house with Sheila and Khloe. Visited for a while. Blaine was there. We all went to McDonalds in Cape Canaveral. Spent about 2 hours reading, studying and typing notes for John chapter 2. I’ve only studied the first two chapters of this gospel and it’s pretty intense in getting the proper meaning of everything. I’m really enjoying digging into it. I’m also TOTALLY enjoying having the time to do it. Thank You Lord!!!!!!
