Right now, my life is kinda boring!  I'm consumed with running and sleeping and not trying to pass out in this Georgia heat.

Over the weekend, I am forcing myself to make some YOU time.  Time to catch up on your lives!! 

I'm stepped away from blogging, facebook-ing, and twittering through work hours.  I need focus, and as much as I love social interaction, I do not get paid to do this yet.

The sacrifice is hard. I feel as though I'm missing really critical moments, but I have to make them.  Your encouraging words are such sweet salvation and comfort... more than you'll ever know.

Also, random: I now know more about tennis shoes than ever. 

Life is sweet!

hello loves.

For reasons that I don't understand, I've not really felt like blogging. I haven't fought it as I should, just pressing through it, but tonight, that's what I find myself doing.

I haven't been reading your lovely words as much as I should... well, I haven't been commenting.

Life is busy, and wild, and crazy.

Workout 2 and 3 of running has passed and I had an epiphany tonight while on the treadmill.  I love that God gives us moments of clarity when we are discouraged.  It was so good!

I'm a little random tonight.

I think I need a shower.  Ha!

Hope you all are well... and hopefully I'll have some blogspiration very soon!!

Love you all ...  xoxo,

Dear Lord,

I ran tonight.  I am weak and WAY out of shape.  But more than that, I am tired and exhausted from living a life of mediocrity.

Where excuses abound and people fail me and I them, remind me that Your Grace is sufficient and in my weakness, You are Glorified.

And that I Can and Will do this.


Bloggy Giveaway!

I had the privilege of Mimi stopping by my blog quite some time ago... and she's more than a fellow blogger, she's definitely a friend!  Recently, she asked me to join her on Read, Review, Repeat, and I was honored!

Today, she's giving away 5 hard back copies of Madeleine Wickham's book -- A Desirable Residence!

If you've not picked up a great beach read, or you're headed out for that end of July trip... enter to win!  Madeleine Wickham is the author of the Shopaholic Series under her pen name, Sophie Kinsella.

I've not read a Madeleine Wickham book that I didn't like!  Stop by and enter to win!!

to run for God...

Hello my Lovelies!!

This year has been so full of changes in my life.  Some have been really hard, some much easier.  And then there are some that fall into a category of self-imposed (read: GOOD!) changes.

Tonight, my church started a bible study called Run for God.  It was started here locally in town, and as of right now, there is a study going on around this area every night of the week. (During the video presentation, I may or may not have started crying.  Let's lean towards the may, shall we?)

The goal is to prepare Christians, inexperienced runners who love the Lord, to run their first 5K and share the gospel.  We are called to fill the Great Commission and what better way to do that, right?

Truthfully, I've wanted to run a 5K for at least 2 years now.  I lack the self-motivation.  Not my proudest feature but ... it is what it is.  I'm accepting that THIS is the time I'm going to change.  I'm choosing to change!

So... I'm asking you all to pray and keep me accountable.  The 5K is on October 16, and I could not be any more excited.

Next week our class is meeting at the home church for the program and we're having our Gait Analyzed by a company in Chatty, Fast Break

Y'all Pray!!  And please don't hesitate to call me out.  I'm caffeine free and french fry free.  Why not run? 

Happy Wednesday!

well, Hello there!

I'm guessing if you're here, you discovered either 1) your email, or 2) the remains of my other website.

Let's just say that, due to some unforseen circumstances, it became important to start fresh and work for some anonymity,... shall we?

I'm still tweaking and playing with features, so even though it looks bare... it won't for long!

For now, I hope you had a marvelous Tuesday!
