That is Heather and her friend Dana at a 10K they ran last summer.
That is me and my cousin Jason at a 5K we ran Thanksgiving weekend. We are both running another 5K next weekend and I can't wait. Partly because there will be chocolate!!
Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. John 6:35
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13I couldn't have persevered through the dark times without the love of God and those around me who shined with His love and forgiveness. I have received so much grace and mercy and those are the things that I will always remember when I think about this chapter of my life.
But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all ... might hear it. So I was rescued from the lion's mouth. The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen. 2 Timothy 4:17-18
