the nice thing about busy days

The thing I like about "busy" days are that there's little opportunity for temptation. Saturday was very busy; we spent most of it out at the range re-zeroing and qualifying on our M4's, M9's, and other weapons. By the time I got back to my bed I was so tired I just went right to sleep.
Then Sunday (not my fault) we had a pretty long mission. I was up at 0500 to get the MRAP loaded and didn't get back until about 1800. After some chow (my teammates did some BBQ) and a shower, I pretty much went right to bed.
So, yeah, it's nice not to have the time for temptation to slip in there.
Today (Monday) I started out with a nice 6 mile run. Hopefully the next few weeks will stay just as busy.
I'm down to just 20 days before I'm on leave to get to go see my wife and kids for 2 weeks. Can't wait.



Yup, this helps me too.

"In recent years, as I have sung the hymns of the Atonement, it has been with an especially full heart—and also with full voice, when I can continue to sing—lines such as “How great thou art,” “I scarce can take it in,” “To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine,” “I stand all amazed,” and “Oh, it is wonderful!”"
