Unseasonably cold…loving it!!!


We didn’t have the anticipated snow flurries, but the temperature certainly dropped!  The temp. this morning was 39 with a wind chill of 30!  That is so unlike South Louisiana…I’m wondering what all the race participants must be thinking!  We have such crazy fluctuating weather here.

Got my 3 miles in…realized I was a little overambitious in my attire about 3/4 of a mile down the road, but we live on a golf course & I found out a long time ago, there’s something about the way the neighborhood is designed, it’s always a little colder & windier down toward the turn-around of my run.  No Garmin, no I-Pod (thanks, kids;), so it was actually nice just to run happy.  I always stress out the week before a big race, but I’m getting better at managing it.  “Why am I running so slowly?”  among other questions.  But, the older I get, the more relaxed I become.  I’m quite satisfied to have the ability to start and finish a race.  If my time is good, that’s just lagniappe (prounounced: lohn-yop) and it means extra!

I’m excited to go to my son’s school this morning to pray for the students and faculty & their families.  We are Roman Catholic and our kids go to Catholic school.  Our kids’ high school has a wonderful adoration chapel & a group of us moms volunteer at the beginning of the school year to spend an hour once a week in the chapel.  At the beginning, I thought I was doing a good thing for the kids, but realized very quicky it was doing what I perceived to be so very much more for me.  My time there is at 11:30, lunchtime for them, and the kids who come in and out while I am in there is just beyond-words amazing.  They come in to pray, sit, quietly visit with friends, etc.  My spirit is always lifted when I see these sweet children kneel down and bow their heads.  I love that place.  Sometimes, the kids play music, Christian, of course, and the lights are always low.  It always reminds me of a newborn’s nursery.  I just feel God’s love every time I step in there.
