How many muscles does it take to walk one step?

I have read it takes approximately 200 muscles to take one single step. So with each step, the majority of us take 200 muscles for granted. Just like I took for granted my car would start this past Saturday morning when I hopped in it to run to the store. $500 later, it did start. It's human nature to forget about all the small things that happen in the course of a day.

So each day I will start out by saying "Thank you" 200 times to show my gratitude for just one single step. Then I will calculate how many muscles it takes to make coffee.

Peace and joy to all,

Today I feel blessed!

Even though we had a flood last year, a tree crushed our porch a couple weeks ago and we can't quite seem to let go of winter...I feel blessed. I am grateful to be living in such a wonderful city. I hope everyone takes 15 seconds today to say "Thank you" to God for such a great life. Send prayers to those less fortunate as well.

Peace and joy today,


My favorite Songwriter Joel Shewmake

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
