Super Seventeen!

Wow!  What a morning!!  And yes, that’s a GOOD THING!!!

After dropping off the kids at school, I headed out for my first run in 3 days.  And it was G-L-O-R-I-O-U-S!!!  The temps were in the high 40s-low 50s and the sun was shining…perfect.  Ahhhh fall has arrived indeed:-)

I find that I can faster and farther when I am listening to praise music.  My thoughts are focused on so much more than my run, or anything else for that matter.  They are focused on Him, and His grace that is made perfect for me.

Thank you for your company this morning, Father.  I give you all the  praise and glory for each and every step I take. I love you<3

Have a blessed day, guys!
