Thirsty?

So as I kick off training for Marathon #2! I have been energized and excited! When it comes to blogging I have been less than enthusiastic. I like to think BIG and in my mind make use of the time and gifts I have been given. So maybe blogging is not one of them? I seem to get the same 4-8 people commenting on things and that'it!

One hand I love that because I feel like I have been able to create a more personal connection with some blog friends. I really want all I do somehow come back to being able to share Christ's love with others. Running, blogging, working, mothering, being a wife and friend! So as I sign up to coach my son's b-ball team I am thinking big picture. I am thinking of being a light in the lives of others...while at the same time running lines, and doing defensive slides!! See I can multi-task!

Blogging takes time....plain and simple so I have been trying to think about how I could incorporate some spiritual elements as well. We all know is one or another how spiritual, physical and mental running can be!! There are so many strong women who have been brought together through the love of running! I have a feeling there is more we can share and give to each other. So I am thinking of beginning a THIRSTY THURSDAY to my blog. A day where I will share a verse or two and how it is has impacted me. I hope then you may have a place to start...and go look up the same verse...read and share what spoke to you. We can make this as small or big as we want. I am thinking of doing a 8 week series and see if we can make it! If I can be disciplined enough to get up and make myself run 7 miles then I am hoping I will be able to pause long enough to spend some time in the Word and in discussion with others!

If this is something you would be interested in let me know and I will pray more about it and see if we can make this FUN!!

That sounds like a great idea! I have been a reader for a short time now, but you always have a way of staying positive and reminding us to focus on God's love more often. Thanks for letting me follow your life.

Fantastic idea! I started my blog with the intention of letting my spiritual side shine through as well as my physical and emotional. However it seems to lack on the spiritual side...severely.
I love this post and the idea of Thirsty Thursday...it challenges me to step it up.

Great idea. I love how God is speaking through you to share more of him on your blog. Very refreshing and totally makes sense since it's part of your daily life.

I'm game!

Totally hear you on how hard it is to keep blogging. I'm shocked how many people do it daily. I go through phases. I love to blog because of the community I just don't have time to do it sometime.

Thanks for sharing. Keep me posted on when we start.

This sounds great! I think you were the one that asked me what I was doing for my spiritual life awhile back and it really made me stop and think. The next day I made sure to get up and spend some time with God. Hope you start this. :)
