The Journey is…love.


I am thankful for God’s grace, love & peace.

Romans 8:38-39

38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Ephesians 3:16-21

16May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].

17May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,

18That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];

19[That you may really come] to know [practically, [e]through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses [f]mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] [g]unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and [h]become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

20Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]–

21To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).



The Journey is…HOT!!!


Ran with Matt today…at 1pm, in Humid, ALABAMA, 90 degree weather!!!  It was his idea.  I prefer cool, early morning running, but had woken up too late for that.  I made my feeble attempt at excuses, but as always…his encouragement was just what I needed to get out there and get going.

That was TOUGH!

The same path that I typically run with ease(kind of), was at times torture today!  In the end, we finished…and, as usual…it was a great run.  Worth every minute!

All I could think today was…

How often we judge others in their race of life…never thinking of the extreme conditions they may be running in.  Some we know…some we don’t.  We may have been down a similar path, but that doesn’t make it the same race.  May I be a woman of God’s unlimited mercy & grace…
