Happy Good Friday

Of the many blessings we have, being alive is at the top of my list.

Well, almost.

You mean being alive isn’t at the top of your list?

No, not at the very top.  It’s second, I think.

At the very top is the fact that Jesus died to save the world.  Whether you believe this or not, doesn’t change the fact that I believe it.

And, the fact that I believe it, doesn’t mean if you believe otherwise, that I think you are wrong.  Who the heck am I to judge someone else?  No one.

Being in a world where diversity of thought and belief, is valued and respected, is also at the top of my list.

Told you all of that to tell you this.   Today’s run was a blessing.  Literally pain free.  I believe God may want me to keep going on this impossible journey to make it to the finals at August’s World Championships.

Count your blessings.  Never give up.  Respect others.  Love your neighbor.  Do something great.  Inspire others by the courage of your own example.  Carpe diem, jeff 🙂
