Side note: I'm not going to lie. After hearing what happened on the news today, I almost, for the first time, just wanted to open a beer, or 2, or 3 when I got home from work.

Prayers going out to all the families who lost their babies yesterday.

Prayer is Powerful. Just as your heart pumps blood through your body to keep your body alive, so does prayer and worship pump the Holy Spirit's presence into your soul. For if the heart stops pumping, how can the body survive? The heart is pumping the blood 24/7. The heart never stops, it always continues on.

So it's nearing November 2012 already, and I have noticed an alarming trend within myself. With the demand at work and college, the amount of free time I have is diminishing. However, I also have a habit of procrastination and being unmotivated to exercise. I used to exercise a lot back in Highschool, but that has slowly dissipated.
