It's GOOD to Be OPEN

We explored chapters 2 & 3 tonight of Liz Curtis Higgs' It's Good to Be Queen.  We highlighted the author's idea to be OPEN you must be (1) Willing (2) Eager and (3) Available -- Here's our yoga moves to help us remember:

(1) Willing

(2) Eager

(3) Available

To be OPEN you also need to have ON your listening brain, your listening ears and your listening eyes!

Pose of the Day: Down Dog

Pose of the Day:  Down Dog

Thank you, Roxie, for demonstrating the "Pose of the Day!"  The "Down Dog" movement strengthens and stretches!  You work the top of the body, and the lower body too.  You’ll feel it in your hands, arms, shoulders, back, calves, hamstrings and even the arches of your feet. When your body is "inverted" (or your heart is above your head), you encourage blood flow and energize and calm the body!

Put a little microbend in the knees.  Heels reach to the ground.  Roll into a plank and the back to down dog to check the distance between your hands and feet.  Push through the ground and separate or lift the shoulder blades.  Feel strong and feel the stretch in your arms, back and legs!

Try to be a little upside down EVERY day!

Be Ready for Battle

Suit Up with the Armor of God, Ephesians 6:10-19

The BELT of Truth provides stability to the core.  All the other pieces of armor attach to this one!

The BREASTPLATE of Righteousness -- Righteousness is "Right Living"   
If a boat is stored upside down, the environment created encourages creepy crawlies, legless and otherwise .  .  .  not so when the boat is upright!  Create the environment for "right living" by aligning your behavior to God's standard.

The SHOES of Peace give us strong footing on a chaotic path.  Peace guards AND guides.  ". . . the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." ~Philippians 4:7

Your FAITH IN ACTION is a protective SHIELD!

The HELMET of Salvation gives you COMPLETE coverage!

The SWORD of the Spirit, The Word of God, is our OFFENSIVE tool.
