I Had to Write

I shared an update on Facebook recently in which I stated that I had almost been distracted from remembering Christ’s death and resurrection this week especially, what with the timing of many political and social “hot topics” here and abroad.  This post is as much for myself, then, as for others.  I hesitated to post […]

The two most important planks of wood ever…

I am hoping to share a piece that a friend wrote today. With Good Friday coming up tomorrow, this post explains and reminds us why Jesus had to die on a cross for us.

You Have to Train Before You Run the Race

I named my blog “Running the Race” in tribute to a favorite Bible verse from the book of Hebrews (ch. 12, v. 1) and also in reference to a lifelong love of running. Literally speaking, running–and with long distances especially–many miles and hours go into building up endurance, power, and speed.  This is called “training”, […]
