Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Our family continues the traditional custom of giving up something in order to remember all that Christ suffered for us when he gave his life for our sins. This year I am giving up my laziness about running in the winter and will run at least five times a week. Today I ran in the drizzle, fog and cold, none of which I like. But as I ran, I praised God and prayed for people I know who are suffering. I recalled all that Christ has done for me and my run was over before I knew it. I liked that closeness with God. I look forward to tomorrow's run.
