" Don’t be anxious about things; instead,
My friends were warmed up and ready to run but I just couldn't do it so I encouraged them to go and I'd see them at the finish. I enjoyed the laughter, conversation, and fellowship of the entire afternoon and evening. Yet the moment I thought about as we drove home and the sun was setting, with beautiful transitions of color capturing our attention and stopping conversation, was my quiet time on the walk. You are probably wondering how you can have quiet time with almost 7,000 people running and walking all around you, but it's possible. The above verses from Philippians kept coming to mind. I found myself looking up and praying these verses over and over.
Why do I share this with you? I'm not sure really, other than to encourage you it is possible to pray regardless of where you are and how many people are around. The time with friends and colleagues was great and memorable yet I woke up thinking about watching the clouds and these verses echoing in my thoughts. I'm thankful to have the best of both worlds, good friends and a great God.
