GEAR GUIDE: Polarized Sunglasses

Polarized is the way to go.

What are polarized lenses?
Polarized lenses utilize polarized filtering technology to diffuse the concentrated light waves. This filtering process eliminates 99% of the reflected glare.


(from http://www.technical-gear.com/sunglasses/polarized_sunglasses.htm)

How do polarized sunglasses work?
Light reflected from surfaces like a flat road or smooth water is generally horizontally polarized. This horizontally polarized light is blocked by the vertically oriented polarized filter in the lenses.

It's great for running, walking, everything. You don't even need to take it off - everything kind of stays the same brightness whether there's lots of sun, or whether it's all shade. The lenses are very clear and crisp, not dizzying and blurry like another pair of glasses, same brand, I had (I use Ocean Pacific).

FAITH: Whosoever, Whosoever

Last night at Kindred Spirit practice, TT, a newbie, did an incredible job with the solo improv of God So Loved. One part that stuck out in my mind last night was when she went through "God so loved the world/ that He gave his one and only son/ that whosoever believes in him/ should not perish but have everlasting life," she then did a cool tune, repeating "whosoever, whosoever." That whosoever part had new meaning. I used to struggle with doubts about whether God would want me, as unfaithful as I am, as often and as blatantly as I commit sins. I know my own heart, and I see the darker motives that others don't.

But the message of the gospel is that whosoever believes in him shall be saved. It's not about how "good" we are, because none of us are good. By our works, we are undone. No amount of good works could ever make up for even a single sin. But by faith we are saved.

Conincidentally, the Junior Girls' Bible Study's verse of the week is Romans 1:16-17>> "I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "the righteous will live by faith." We can stand righteous before God because of Jesus's sinless life, death for our sins, and ressurection from the dead. Who am I to think that anything [bad] I can do can be more powerful than his works? The free gift of grace is for all.

300 workout>
- At top of Whitman Hill, 9-rung ladder doing separated Out-Ins, followed by 10 burpees (the hardest part of the circuit), run down the hill, 12 2-footed ring jumps, followed by 25 pushups or crunches, followed by 10 knee-to-chests, followed by 9-rung ladder of Ice Skater, run up the hill... repeat 2 more times = 300 reps... took all of 10 min. Not that bad, so maybe we should step it up. Have a mile warmup run or something beforehand.
