Run With Perseverance

Out with the old...
In with the new.


The old may not appear worn out, but you can tell when you put them on. The idea is to keep running, or walking, until the race of life is over.
This morning PR and I are going to a memorial service for a retired pastor who finished his race over the weekend. He finished well.
Sometimes you need new shoes.
In the end, you get a whole new you. Now, that's what I'm talking about.

    Looks like some fine new shoes. If the feet aren't happy then the body isn't happy either!

    I praise God for this testimony of His servant and pray God will comfort those who suffer his absence.

    A wonderful post. At our former church, the SS class I taught had three retired preachers (went to two of their funerals), two active deacons, and several inactive. A lot more funerals. The age was 65 till death (do us part).

    BTW, are you going to wear your new shoes to the funeral. My foot doc says always to wear that kind. I have some black walking Reeboks for church.

    I have removed some things from my Todo List, going to Brazil is tenatively out.

    What a great post. Most of the time the outside of my shoes look just fine and I try telling myself they are fine. No more, not after reading this great lesson.

    2 Timothy 4:7
    I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.


    May God comfort all involved with the knowledge that their loved one obtained his prize and bless all those who put on their new shoes and run this race.

    God's Grace.

    I'm going running tonight... after a couple of weeks off, because of a cold... (I still got a runny nose, but I'll run anyways...)
    Oh, and great pictures of your grandchildren!
