Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone. – Colossians 4:5-6 NLT As believers we are called to speak with grace and love to those that are non-believers. We cannot hold a non-believer to any calling that God has made, that is not our place.
“Our kids, by their existence, make a legitimate spiritual claim on our time, our money, and our focus.” – Devotions for Sacred Parenting by Gary L. Thomas I was challenged today in how I approach being a Dad. Too often I choose to focus on everything but my kids. Our time is too short with our kids, and there will be years ahead when we will have all kinds of time to pursue other things.

I’m not quite sure that it was an overall lifetime #PR for a #5K but I’m pretty sure I finished better than more recent 5K times. What’s crazy is that it wasn’t like I had gotten extra sleep last night or had taken some time off running. I know turning on the new Christian Workout/Running playlist helped. Maybe since I’m on the taper for the marathon, and the miles aren’t as high, I’m just feeling like I have more energy. I won’t be pushing it this hard tomorrow as Thursdays are usually the intense interval run days and I need to make sure I don’t wipe…
I’m definitely well on the way to recovery. I enjoyed a nice Saturday group run with the #HWI Daybreak Team. Great conversations with Todd, Nate, and Josh. It was a nice change of pace to just get out there and run and have no agenda in regards to distance or any specific pace. I definitely took Ron’s advice today and just had fun. I’m also excited to see a bunch of guys taking the next step and moving from their half marathon last year to a full this year. I think it might have pushed me into the decision to do another full marathon this year. I feel like having completed 3 marathons I can share my own experience to help others succeed in finishing…
