Wednesday, May 27


Yesterday, I waited until my husband was home from work so I could run the hills near our house. My plan was to run 4 miles but, the temperature was already a whopping 86 degrees when I left the house around 7 pm. Needless to say I am not used to that type of heat yet. I ran 3 and it was extremely hard.

Today's run was back in the cool morning air a mild 64 degrees in comparison. My plan was to run 5 miles, I ran 4. My meditations this morning were on Psalm 46 and Hebrews 13:8. My husband read Psalm 46 to me before I left to go to the doctor last Friday and they brought me great comfort as I considered my ever present Lord. Those meditations were still on my heart as well as Hebrew 13:8 "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever". Even though I strive for consistency, my life is full of phone call from a friend in need, one unexpected doctors report, a sick child.., can throw my daily life in to a whirl of variables. But, even in the midst of these things I have a sure and present foundation! An unchanging God who is the bedrock of my hope and joy! "His love is the same; his righteousness is the same; his wisdom is the same; his power is the same. And he is not bound by the limitations of finite man so that he could ever be surprised by any of your circumstances". Piper

Double Dabble Run (thanks Kim for the cute title) After breakfast and morning devotions the kids and I hit the trails near our house and I did 2 miles of hill repeats. This makes my total today 6 miles, Yipp!

Great mileage! Life is full of variables.....oh how true and I love how you put it: "An unchanging God who is the bedrock of my hope and joy!" Thank you for this today, a good timely (for me) reminder.
