Running the Race

Today heralded the 1st fundraiser 3k run for T's school. The 300+ students ran a course (mostly through the woods) and got to cross a finish line. My dad walked to the school with C & I so that we could cheer T on. For those of you who know my 9year old, you understand the competitive, athletic spirit that he has. "Driven" and intense" are two adjectives that describe the Tman.

He was in the division with the 3rd through 8th graders and he finished 7th out of the 300 kids. He is energy and endurance and perseverance rolled into one.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. 2Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:1-2 is an excellent reminder for me to run the race that God has set before me. Sometimes that race seems cumbersome, especially when my days are filled with laundry, runny noses and never ending dishes. Seeing T's pure enthusiasm today renewed my passion to run my race with more fire, to know that I did my very best when I finally cross that finish line.

T is at soccer now and we are waiting for Enrique to come home. Made a yummy dinner of BBQ pulled pork. I tried a new recipe and it trumps my old standby!!

Happy Monday Everyone.


  1. I'm gonna need that recipe ! :)

  2. Trevor's awesome finish doesn't surprise me at all! He is such an intense athlete. We also pray that his passion for athletics would grow into a dual passion for the Lord. I love to hear T share his heart. :)

  3. We pray that, too. And we see evidence of his passionate heart:)
