I have been amazed at how God has been working this week. To raise over $1500 in less than a week is amazing beyond words.

A bit later of a start this morning, a big change for me to actually run when there is daylight. It’s always interesting trying to get in enough miles running around my small hometown of Le Sueur, MN.
The function of your mouth is a product of the things that dwell in your heart. In order to tame your tongue, you must first examine your heart and get it right with God. #JamesChallenge James Challenge In this age of social media I’m seeing far too often where people, and especially those that claim to be Christians, spewing words they have no business putting out for all the world to see. Long ago I made to decision that if I what I have to say is not uplifting or helpful I’m not going to share it.
