March Madness - Day (3)14

"It's PI day"
"Maddison said is mommy doing it."


(This was on a string of text messages I read after my fitness class.)

The picture attached showed daddy and daughter at the track having just finished running 3.14 miles.

Well, I guess they had just finished. The Garmin read 3.14 miles of work done but there was not much sweat. The daughter did not even look tired. Oh well.

The words were enough to get me moving.
               (Even after I finished an hour long kickboxing class that includes conditioning.)

Am I doing this?
Where would I run?
But, it is about to get dark?
What goal time would I set?
Do I have music on my phone?

As always, a million thoughts running through my head.

Peer Pressure or Accountability?

I thought about that question as I ran. As each foot struck the pavement, I became increasingly more thankful for the accountability.  

As I ran, I listened to this past Sunday morning's worship service at Rainfire Church. I was reminded that sometimes we get into our emotions and want to quit. We second guess our steps. We may begin to consider other options. 

I was immediately reminded of Exodus 3:14 where God said to Moses, "I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I am has sent me to you.'" 

See, there are times when we will be called to do something that we don't quite understand. Things that other people don't quite understand. 

We will be called to some things, people, or situations that make us question our paths and our plans. 

But....remember WHO sent you. As long as I AM sent you, you are right where you need to be. So follow through and DO NOT give up.

You may not fully see the promise right now, but it's Pi Day. It's about 3:14. Exodus 3:14.
Let me know what I AM has sent you to do. I will help you stay accountable.

  1. This one for me has been tricky since last night because other than my family I am not sure what he has sent me to do. I will say in typing this I have to say that is no small feet as there are so many different components to that statement. Uhhhhhggggg, I think LIFE has really gotten real (like shut up and Make-a-Move type real).

Don't Harbor Unforgiveness

“ His mother left him and his father turned his back on him .” These words struck me like a bolt of lightening. They were words spoken directly to me. They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
