Today was an epic running day. Temps in the mid 30’s, the sun was shining and best of all – NO WIND! So after running a myriad of errands, I put on TWO (not 3 as in the past weeks) top layers, ONE pair of gloves, a hat without the headband underneath, One pair of running leggings, ONE pair of socks and my shoes + sunglasses and out the door I went.
It was absolutely glorious! I didn’t feel the need to run for a certain distance or time. I just clicked the chronometer on my watch to run and took off! I ran in an area that I refer to as the quarry since all the street names are after types of rock – moonstone, limestone, jasper, onyx, etc. As I passed the different streets, I began to think about the area of the world where they are mined and prayed. So while out running today I prayed for the following;
Diamond Drive – South Africa
Marble Lane – P*Stan
Limestone – OK this is just about everywhere, So I prayed for Canada
Jasper – India
Coral – Australia because of the Great Coral Reef
Moonstone – Had no idea where this might be found, so just prayed for lost people in the world – should cover just about anyone!
The first time around the loop, I prayed for areas of the world. The second time around, I just listened to hear God’s voice. I had been struggling with a writing project and as I ran, I began to get some ideas for my project. God was beginning to clarify the direction for this project!
I love to run on days like this! It is just amazing to be out in creation and experience God. So thankful for the fun run!
