A reminder of Good Friday

Kaiser Permanente in Downey is expanding its hospital. Groundbreaking was last summer. You can see part of the beginning construction here. This week, they brought in this massive crane to lift the steel girders used in the construction. It took them three days to put it together and make it operational.

This morning as I was riding to work, I spotted the crane lifting some of the ground floor structures. The shape of the beams reminded me of three other crosses that were lifted up on another Friday some 2000 years ago. Today, Christians around the world celebrate Good Friday, the sacrifice of our Savior for the sins of the world. This image helped me to stop for a moment and praise God for doing for us what we couldn't do ourselves. Ephesians 1:7

The social benefits of exercise

Furman Park Fitness Area

A few years ago, my friends teased me when they caught me relaxing on the couch, eating ice cream and watching an exercise video. (Seriously, I was checking it out for future use!) I was reminded of that moment when I saw these three friends socializing on the leg press machine in the Kiwanis Fitnes Area at Furman Park.
