It is always nice to go on vacation, but it is even better to come home! Just think, we are really jot even home yet! One day we will experience a homecoming unlike any other. I can’t wait! All of our worries and concerns will be gone!
“Show me, lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is.You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Everyone is but a breath, even those who seem secure. “Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom; in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth without knowing whose it will finally be. “But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.” Psalms 39:4-7
My hope is in Him! This journey to Boston did not go as I planned. I had the last week to truly reflect. I was running for Him, but with my will in mind, not His. His will is the path I choose. I want His glory in all I do. So here we go again.
The San Diego marathon was one mailbox on the way to the final mailbox-Boston. God is in control of how many mailboxes are in between the two. He has provided the next one. Thanks to my mom and dad who said do it again and we will sponsor your entry fee. I have the best parents in the whole wide world! The next mailbox is in Tupelo, MS on September 4, 2011…Labor Day weekend! I am jumping back on the horse with Tupelo on my mind. Sounds like a country song, doesn’t it? That reminds me of my book title…if I write it…What can a person do in 52 seconds? Qualify for Boston, cook two hot dogs in the microwave….anything else? Comment with your suggestions. 🙂
God is so good. I have felt His never-ending love through the support and encouragement from all of you all-my family and friends!
My hope is in Him!
Let His journey continue!
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Colossians 3:23-24
Still running blessed!
