I get my kids up and take them to school and set off to start my day. Just like every morning, I lace up my running shoes and drink my last sip of coffee and I’m out the door.
Why, on a gloomy morning with the mist falling and the humidity through the roof, do I go out and run? Dodging mud puddles, fearing wild animals, and sweating buckets is not necessarily my idea of a party. Don’t get me wrong though, I LOVE it;-) But as I was reminded by a song playing through my earphones this morning, I run for a much bigger reason than the fact that I am simply addicted to it…I run for life.
It is hard to put into words, but I think that Melissa Etheridge’s “I Run For Life,” sums it up pretty well. Listen to the song and read these words…this is me:
Have a great Monday!
“Remember, our faith is always at it’s greatest point when we are in the middle of the trial, and confidence in the flesh will never endure testing. Fair-weather faith is not faith at all.” –Charles H. Spurgeon
