got to run today as we were off school due to lingering snow and ice on some roads. all that was on my road was dust, and the mail carrier kicked it up as he zoomed past me to deliver yet one more llbean holiday gift catalog to my big silver box. i thought about these as i ran:
jack bought a toaster oven at a benefit auction for a lady who needs help paying for her kidney transplant. he used his own $50. he is 11. and i am humbled.
one of geronimo's great-great-grandsons is coming over for dinner tomorrow night. will an apache chief from new mexico like molasses ginger cookies?
there are these young ladies with eating disorders. and i pray and worry and answer questions and texts. i want god to move in them. to push them closer to health than they could possibly get on their own.
this running is about more than fitness. it's real time with god. it's no interruptions time with god. i finished the last uphill today, my faith stronger, believing that my boys are growing their relationships with jesus, that tomorrow night with an apache chief who loves god will be amazing, and that my ladies who are struggling against an illness that their loved ones are hard pressed to understand will not. stop. fighting.
