MANGOS GALORE and WORKOUTS
Hey guys, I hope that your week has been great, because mine has. This week has been awesome for me because my mango has tree produced a lot of mangos... A LOT. One day, I went out to pick some, and there were so many ready, so I picked all. 117 in counting. Yes, ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTEEN, with still a whole lot more left on the tree. When I tasted them, they were so good. I felt the juice swish in my teeth, and I smelled the sweetness of them. Mangos here are different than the mangos that you find in the store in the States. The mangos here are smaller, and they are always green. Also, they are more sour than the mangos there, but they are still good. I think that it is a weird coincidence that I like mangos. Before I came to my mom and dads house, I didn't like a lot of stuff, I'm not going to go through the list because it was LONG. Now, I've learned to like a lot of things, including mangos, because of my mom. I started to like things because mom and dad made a rule about the food sat on the table. They said "You don't need to eat what's on there now, you have the choice to leave, but when you come back for dinner, it'll be waiting on you". I thought "Yeah right, there not going to make me eat that for dinner". I didn't believe it, so I left the table. I came back that night for dinner, thinking that I would be getting what they had for dinner... I was wrong. They sat that plate of mostly vegetables right back in front of me, while they had something off the chain. I learned my lesson that day, and now I eat what's on my plate. Don't get me wrong, there are still things that I don't like, but the list is cut in half.
These are the mangos I picked, after we ate about half of them and gave some to a friend.
This week also has been great because I hung out with family, and my brother and I got to work out. I've been the "workout instructor", and we've been doing some pretty hard workouts. I like intense muscle building, but mom has commanded that there be some cardio in the workout, so I put in some jumping jacks and mountain climbers or whatever. I want to workout because I know that If I don't, when I go back to my box (CrossFit gym) I'm going to pay the price of not working out. That price is soreness the next day and even worse the day after that. It's crazy because when I workout, in about 10 minutes, after I cool down, I feel like I can bench press about 625 pounds. I feel great afterward.
These are a few of the workouts that we have been doing.
Now, it's time for the song of the week. This week, the song is "As You Find Me" by Hillsong United. The reason I like this song is because it tells about God's grace. There is a part in the song in the song that says "And I know I don't deserve this kind of love, but somehow this kind of love is who you are. It's a grace I could never add up, to be somebody you still want, but somehow, you love me as you find me." I love this song because it helps me remember that God's grace is bigger than all of my past sin. I hope that this song has that same message, and much more. If you could, I would love it if y'all commented on the blog and song, and tell me what your favorite part is, or what you got out of the song.
Here’s the link for the song...
Thank y'all for reading my blog, and I hope y'all have a blessed week. Comment, and tell me what y'all think about the song. Make sure to listen to the WHOLE song, it's a great one.
