Sunday 1-20-13 Climbing Back Up

Posted on by

Just loaded and washed the truck, including a 40# bag of dog food, and my back seems to be hanging in there.  I had a very encouraging phone call from my dear friend Laura this morning, and some wonderful info on the trail from the Race Organizers, and it sounds like it’s going to be quite possible to run it, even with my limitations.  I’m so very thankful, that it appears we will actually get ro race this week!  We’ve once again climbed back up from where we had crashed, moving “On By Grace”, to the JOY God will bless us with!

God does not send us two classes of providences–one good, and one evil. All are good. Affliction is God’s goodness in the seed. It takes time for a seed to grow and to  develop into fruitfulness. Many of the best things of our lives–come to us first as pain, suffering, earthly loss or disappointment–black seeds without beauty–but afterward they grow into the rich harvest of righteousness!”         J.R. Miller

“No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11
