I'm sitting here watching pre-game coverage of the Super Bowl. Carrie Underwood is singing one of the most beautiful songs in the world: "The Star Spangled Banner." A giant flag is covering the field. "The land of the free and the home of the brave." AMEN, sister!! :) What a world we live in. :) They just showed a feed of our troops watching this game in Kabul, too. Man, guys, thank you SO much. I hope you have a great time watching the game and get some encouragement and enjoyment from the event. You deserve it!
Praise God. That's why He's set me to run. For these awesome men and women who are watching the Super Bowl away from their friends and families. I'm sure they'd rather be at a house party with bowls of chips and salsa and 20 pals. Instead, they're serving us by fighting a war overseas. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, I run for you all.
That's why 16 miles was awesome this morning. Because there is purpose. Becuase through these legs, our troops will be loved. Thank You, Lord! :)
Great turn around the trail, too. Jackie and I cranked out an 8:16 pace in a beautiful shower of snow. It was gorgeous!
Okay...Off to watch the game! :) Go Saints!
