A resolution

It is kinda hard to read because of the glare, but it basically says that I ran 6 miles this morning.  I love it!  Of course, I tried to take the photo while I was still running, but all the bouncing made for a very blurry picture.  :-)  I feel so much better after a run.  I think I'm going to try to do another 6 miles tomorrow.  I've never done two 'long' runs back to back.  It will be good practice for my half marathon training.  And, it will help me to get my weekly mileage in even though I'm going to take two days off before Saturday's race.

While I was running, Jaden came down and started riding his bike around the basement.  He was also practicing his dare-devil moves.  I swear, that kid is going to give us a heart attack one of these days.  This is his latest move.  He climbs onto the seat of his bike.  At least it has training wheels so there is less of a chance that he will fall.  But, the kid has no fear.  And that is pretty scary for me and Tim.  I keep saying that every day when we don't go to the emergency room, is a good day!

And, since today is February 1st, I thought I would list one of my resolutions for 2010.  Most people make their resolutions on January 1st, but I wanted to wait to be sure that I wasn't making a resolution in the excitement of the new year.  So, one of my personal resolutions for the year is to memorize more Scripture.  Specifically, one of the passages that was read at our wedding.  It is a Scripture that I love and I think it has a lot of good instruction for everyday living.

Philippians 2: 1-16

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.  Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.  Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.  Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.  And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.  Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.
