The time is fast approaching, the Desiring God conference is afoot and that means 7 days in Mpls. 7 days spent drinking Caribou apple blasts, walking around lakes, enjoying non 100+ temps, listening to favorite pastors and seeing friends. I have a little calander at work with the count down. So, while I am going to Mpls to relax my younger sister is going to be there the same weekend to run the twin cities marathon. I am shocked we are related. Who in their right mind would want to run 26 miles is beyond me. My thought on the subject can best be summed up by remembering a conversation I had with my friend Aber about a year and a half ago. I had asked him and his wife Molly to go hiking, he paused, asked me if we could drive where we were planning on hiking to. I told him that this was possible, yes. He then proclaimed something along the lines of, well then why would we walk if we can get there faster driving. I do not want to give off the incorrect view of Aber, he and Molly are trim, attractive people, and generally enjoy the outdoors. I think he was tired, anyway he perked up after he was told of the old time ice cream "Shoppe" in "town." Alas, I digress. My sister runs, I don't, and I am very proud of her and can't wait to see her crossing the finish line lathered up in icy hot smelling like a sweaty old man.
So, the question remains...houseguest anyone? I know bethlehem will be asking you to host families and the benefit of me is, only one small girl with a rental car. Looking forward to seeing all of you.
Sorry there has been an extreme lack of posting. I just had a review at work (Got me a raise!), parents were in town (it was so wonderful to have them!!!) and just life has been really busy. Hope everyone is well.
