Running 26.2 Miles is the Easy Part
The hard part is keeping a thankful heart the day after camping, again, when everyone screams, forgets all the rules, and takes all the labels off the cans we just purchased (thankfully it was all artichokes only). The hard part is reminding my children to love each other and not scream back at them in the process. The hard part is nursing a teething, 15 month old toddler and training for a marathon while not eating any wheat (long story). The difficult part is leading small defiant people to Christ every day in my own home.
With these vibrant personalities, which are currently in time out for biting each other, I am continually blessed to see God's love for us. I am amazed and thankful and greedy just like my children are for more love and patience from the Father. I decided that I will enjoy every step of this difficult season because hopefully God will run off some of my rough edges along the way. And I am so looking forward to those long 26.2 miles in Columbus...
