Heaven is a better place today, and here on earth it’s a sadder place, because our good friend John is no longer here. John and Linda were inseparable, always always always giving, smiling, and serving others. John and Linda, always in the kitchen, together, cooking up a storm for church lunches…..always giving hugs….always ready to pray….travelling, to Africa and Mexico to help poverty stricken children….standing in the cold snow here in Canada ringing those kettle bells at Christmas time. They raised a beautiful family together too, and were just starting to enjoy the empty nest. John passed away from liver disease today, and his family, friends, and even strangers, will be missing out on one of God’s kindest and warmhearted person i have ever had the privilege to know. John was special, he loved God, he loved his family, he loved his friends, and he loved strangers too. They say heaven is a beautiful place, but i think that today, heaven is even more beautiful, because John is there. And here on earth, is beautiful too, because John has been here. John will be missed very much by his wife and family. John was very very special.

There is a special song called Friend of God. I want to dedicate this song to John, because John was a friend of God, and i know he would like this song so much.

Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name.
Psalm 103:1

Ok everyone, spring is here! Finally! And so, it’s bootcamp time! Yes it is, why? Just because i care, about you and about me, and because i really need it too. And what better way to start our bootcamp than with my friend, retired Marine Colonel, Will Brown. Will is someone who i admire sooooo much, and he is a true inspiration to me. Reading Will’s story last summer, really inspired me to start walking every day, and it felt wonderful, but winters here really suck, so come winter i of course went into hybernation like any sane person would do lol. I wish i could run marathons like Will, maybe someday i will, i don’t know, i would like to maybe, but Will always compliments me, and says i’m doing well, even at just walking. He truly is an ecouraging and inspiring friend to me, and to so many others too. Here is a video of Will running in the Marine Corp Marathon:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0BLu6e9_Qk

Will is such an inspiration to me, because Will also has HD, but he is symptom free. He believes running is keeping his brain healthy, and i think that very well may be. Here is Will’s Story, you won’t want to miss reading this, this is Will’s story, as shown on the lighthouse website, you wont’t want to miss this. It is called:

Running from the Devil:

So i am hoping to get myself inspired again, and “out there” again, now that spring is finally here. The health benefits in exercise are undeniably a huge way to help with many illnesses, including HD, but many others also, and so’m putting this out there for all my friends. I’m going to post some more articles over the next little bit too on exercise and stuff, and aging and health. Yeah, i dont want to be over focused on exercise, but i am so underfocused, a little focusing wont hurt me at all lol lol.
