Day 30

"Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing." Psalm 143:10

Happy Mother's Day!

It's been 30 days since I began the transition from couch potato to runner.  I've learned a great deal about myself, not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, too.  The manner in which we approach any new thing in life is a reflection of who we are and who we are becoming, and I'm thankful that we're never too old to change, never too old for God to do a new work in us.  That's something my mother reminded me of frequently, too.

When someone has you pegged or pigeon-holed in life, it's good to surprise them in positive ways with who you are, who God is transforming you to be.

I'm going to keep running and continue to keep the body in shape.  But, I won't be posting about it every day anymore.  There's a new book to work on, and family to mind.  I'll continue to post about other things, big and small, as time allows.

Today, if you would please join me in praying for the family and students of Nancy Young, a beloved Middle School teacher at Fort Bend Christian Academy, who passed into the arms of her loving Heavenly Father today after a brief battle with cancer.  Both of my children were blessed to have been taught by her.

I leave you with a verse, fitting for Nancy, and another song that is special to me.  May we all remain faithful to the end of our life's journey.

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful."  2 Timothy 4:7


Goodnight, runners.
