Boomer, my yoga instructor, faced a life crisis earlier this spring when her 50-something husband had emergency bypass surgery.
I like the banter.
“Stretch the myofascial tissue.”
“Stop carrying enormous handbags.”
“Stand up straight or you’ll end up with a hump on your back and a walker!”
He survived the surgery. She missed a week or so of class. I don’t think she realizes it, but a new theme has surfaced in her coaching.
“Engage your thighs. You should feel them working, pumping blood up, strengthening your heart.”
“Open your chest. Don’t let it close over your heart and lungs.”
“Remember to breathe…”
And then last class, this one.
“It’s amazing how easily the heart gets involved with everything.”
Yes, dear teacher. It is.
Guard your heart above all else,
for it determines the course of your life. Proverbs 4:23 NLT
Nothing Is Wasted, my new favorite song by Jason Gray. Listen. Take courage.
What’s on your heart today?
