Sunday night during our First Place 4 Health class, I had an epiphany. We were discussing how our bodies are God's temples. And I thought "I would never desecrate or destroy the church building that I go to worship at. I should take care of my body too."
This week, Tom and I had the annual health screening at his job. We are both anxious to see the results of the bloodwork. My weight was 250, which is 63 pounds less than it was 2 years ago and over 40 pounds less than last November when we did the health screening last. Tom is closing in on 40 pounds.
The First Place 4 health class has been a huge blessing for us. We just started a new session and added a Wednesday night class. There are 19 people in the Sunday night class and 8 people in the Wednesday night class. If you are interested in visiting one of the classes, let me know. You're welcome to come check some out!
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. I Corinthians 6:19-20
