Thank you God for giving me the ability to run, the love of writing and the complete access to you through prayer. I love that all can combine to do good in your name.
I haven’t been blogging here all that long. However in this short time I have met some really great people. I have enjoyed sharing my stories, meeting new friends and just writing about things that I love. I have also been blessed to met some really great Christian women and runners. I have shared my writing with my bible study sisters and been given great support from them to continue to write. And so I have. Today I am especially glad I have continued to blog. Why you might ask? Well just today I got a message on one of my latest blogs for a woman I have never met. The woman (I’ll call her “D”) found my blog when she was searching for some reviews about Jillian Michaels 90 day Body Revolution. I didn’t even realize I would show up that way? God works in mysterious ways.
As I was reading her comment I came to find out we have a lot in common. We both love the Lord. We’re both military wives, mothers of three and currently live in the same area. But “D” shared something really special with me. Her 10-year-old son is battling cancer...for the third time. I wasn’t expecting that. My first thoughts and reply were that my family would pray for her son and her family. She in turn sent me a link to more info on her son’s story. His story is touching and heartbreaking. While reading his story something hit me. (Ok it was probably God was hitting me over the head). I can pray yes, but I can try and do more. I can use this simple running/life blog to contact all of you so we can all pray for “D’s” son and family.
I have learned through my bible study group that prayers are like the sweet incense to God. He wants us to pray. He wants us to have a relationship with him. Praise him in good times and bad. So I figure how much sweeter the aroma will be with more of us praying for “D’s” son and family. Therefore, I invite all of you to take a minute today, tomorrow daily or whenever you can to pray for this special boy.
Oh yes..I also found out D’s son loves jokes! If you have any you want to share let me know. I will be sure to pass them along! Thanks everyone!
