Some historians believe that ice-skating started about 1000BC in Scandinavia. The first skates were made from rib bones of elk, oxen, reindeer, and other animals. It is not known when the metal runner was introduced, but early Dutch prints depict skates with metal blades. Ice-skating started as a means of low energy transport over longer distances. Modern Ice skates are metal blades attached underfoot and used to propel the bearer across a sheet of ice at high speeds.
Whilst Ice skating has to do with balance and coordination to keep moving, spiritually one also requires these two attributes. A well balanced day with devotion, exercise, mealtimes, reading or hobbies and work, don’t only fill the day but excite and nourish the body and mind with good but opens one up to positivity. Coordinating the day properly allows for success and reduces time for negativity or things to go wrong. Planning one’s day leads to contentment and reduces the likelihood of being depressed.
Dear Lord, touch my mind today so that I may coordinate my day within the will of God. Help me plan with the guidance of the Hoy spirit to propel my day into success. As I plan to do good, be healthy, and nourish my spirit, allow me to please you in everything I do in this day. In Jesus Name, Amen.
