Approaching Valentine's Day!

Thursday, January 31, 2013

emoticon As we approach the holiday of love, chocolates, and romance... I am thinking about Hearts.... No, not the kind in a card or covering a box of chocolates...but the organ that sustains our lives. This marvel that pumps blood and enables us to experience all of the wonderful things that this life provides. I ask myself how often do I give thanks for this wonderful work of God. Am I even realizing that it is a gift that it continues to beat each day? emoticon On further reflection...How do I treat this wonderful mechanism...Do I nourish it with nutrient dense food to provide it with all it needs to pump healthfully? Or, do I consume artery clogging goodies that make it weak? Do I give it a workout so that it can be strong and fit? Or, do I sit around all day getting it enlarged and lazy? emoticon
This February, I pledge to my heart...to feed it well and get it fresh air and exercise.... emoticon What about you?????? emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Love your blog and thought about the heart that GOD has blessed us with and how we should show our love in return by taking care of that precious muscle....Thank you so much for sharing this thought!

    Inspired and motivated!

    I read recently that your dental health is directly linked to your heart health. They say that the more you floss and brush, the better your heart is.

    How interesting, ehe?

    Great blog!

    I've gone back to using a heart rate monitor to judge how hard I need to be exercising as I recover from being sick. It's a great way to know just how much I can manage.

    Thanks for the reminder about Valentine's Day coming....time to order something for my sweetie!
