Rain, Wind, and Mud

6 more miles. A new friend. Some rain, wind, and lots of leaves in puddles. It was a good morning. I had the opportunity to run with Ron, Gordon, and Roger. Some of the group went to Cedar Hall today to run the 5K to benefit the cross country team there. I hope that everyone who did the race did well... and stayed relatively clean (I had a picture in my head of mud-covered WOC runners). It has been a pretty good day. Praise God. If you get a chance to listen to the song today, really listen to the words. It really puts life in context. It reminds how thankful I should be that I can run in the rain, the wind, and the mud. Thanks Dad.

Song of the Day: When the Saints - Sara Groves

Even in darkness, light dawns for the upright,
for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.
Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely,
who conducts his affairs with justice.
He will have no fear of bad news;
his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
His heart is secure; he will have no fear;
in the end he will see his desire on his adversaries.
He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor,
his righteousness endures forever;
his horn [dignity] will be lifted high in honor.
- Psalm 112: 4-5, 7-9

"We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty."
- Mother Teresa
