Inspiration for your Perspiration

on August 20, 2012

OK this is going to be a little different that my usual weekly running blog:

I have been blogging for a while now.  As many of you may know I am not only a runner, military wife, mother but also a Christian.  My invitation from the beginning has been “Join me as I find my happy pace in running and life“.  Over the past few months I have been trying to share the word of God, at least occasionally, on my Facebook page.  Tonight while lying in bed these words came to me…“Inspiration for your Perspiration”  kinda catchy, a little silly (that’s me) but I love it.  In fact although it is now actually Monday morning where I am, I am up and writing this because I was inspired.  And in my opinion one thing you should never pass on is inspiration.  Don’t set it aside and don’t wait until later whenever you can.  It usually happens for a good reason!  So from this week forward I have decided to do weekly short blog/tweet/status update/instagram on Sunday and I will call it:

 “Sunday’s Inspiration for your Perspiration”

I may quote a bible verse or a line or two from an inspirational song, maybe a link to a video.  We will see.  I realize some of you following me may not also be followers of Jesus.  I also realize many of you signed up to follow strictly for  running tips/amusement/advice, etc.  I get that, but I also feel that it doesn’t hurt to put a little Jesus in your week.   I may lose a few followers and I am 100% OK with that.  I would rather be called a Jesus Freak than an awesome blogger. (heck, I know I will never be called an awesome runner, lol)  I want to use my page and life for the greater good, not just product giveaways, although who doesn’t love those!  I love them too and will continue to do them, so fun!  But the best thing this blog and running have brought into my life are some great new friends.  So thank you.

It is my hope that this too may bring even more great people into my life so that we may inspire eachother on many levels.  Take care, Run Find your Happy Pace and here is:

    Great idea! I was out “walking” because recovering and rather run. Chuckled to myself, thinking I could use one of those FB statuses, inspirational for help right about now! Better yet, would be someone religious in nature, espec on Sun.! Keep going w/it-great idea.

  3. I absolutely love this idea!! I can’t wait to get some weekly inspiration for my perspiration! I talk about my faith in my blog and had the same hesitations about offending people but then I realized that it’s my blog that I set up to share my thoughts. Follow your heart and write what He impresses upon it. 🙂

  4. We can all use a little more Jesus!
