life is short…but it’s a marathon, not a sprint

this probably sums up what i have been learning lately in my life. i have always loved change. i love the next thing. i love living a full life. i know life is short. i really have realized that over the past several years. i have lived a very full 28 years of life with lots of experiences and wonderful things that have happened. but there is something missing in how i live life…

the realization that i have to pace myself to finish the race strong. you have to take care of yourself, your loved ones, and most importantly your relationship with God. you have to remember to enjoy and celebrate the amazing things that have happened and that God has done in the midst of pushing forward onto what He has in the future.you have to rest, to build time for unexpected ministry that He puts in your path. that could include kid’s sickness, to your sickness (this is to prove how human we are), and other people that He puts in our path.

it is a tricky thing, living life as a marathon. you still aim, strive, and move forward. but with pacing yourself you may end up further along the path then you would have if you lost steam after the age of 30. 🙂

    I can NOT believe I am 5 years older than you. That is all I have to say. Sigh.
