It all started bright and EARLY Saturday morning. It was time for the 8th Annual Race for Faith.
|Event attendees were greeted with a glorious sunrise.|
|The Chik-Fil-A Cow getting ready for the warm up.|
|Everyone warming up (I did warm up, I only paused to take this picture)|
|At the start line. I stayed behind since I knew I was among the slower runners.|
|This picture is of the lead runners on their way to the finish line, I still had not passed mile 1!|
|Mile 1 at last, with some inspiration to go with it.|
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalms 119:105
|Thankfully more inspiration right when I needed it.|
For God didn't give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self control. 2 Timothy 1:7
|I was still slogging away, and finally made it to Mile 2!!!|
I know there was an inspirational verse just after this sign, but I didn't take a picture.
Note, there is no picture of Mile 3 because I was on a running roll, and didn't want to stop.
Sunday started out with attending church online; Pastor Tom delivered a wonderful message, as usual. I am blessed to be part of a wonderful church community where I can attend in person, or online, and still feel part of the family. (Christ Fellowship)
Then we all went to Pawdi Gras! Pawdi Gras is Mardi Gras for our four-legged friends. It was held by a local veterinary hospital. There were demonstrations, vendor displays, free doggie baths (which we missed), live music, and of course lots of other doggies. Daphne our social butter fly had a ball, Rusty on the other well, he is our little fraidy-dog, he didn't care for being around so many other dogs and people.
|Having fun at Pawdi Gras.|
(They each got their own beads)
|Had TOO much fun at Pawdi Gras, time to go home...|
Life is good! Enjoy the beauty of simplicity!
Hope you all had a GREAT weekend.
