The Difference

The difference that one whole year and some can make for many things is huge. In my case, I am talking about running. I started running in October of 2009 because of my work. I sit at a desk all day and only get up and about maybe once or twice throughout my eight hour work day for about five minutes at a time.… Read the rest

A Magic Show

Last night Brent and I were given a gift of two tickets to the Jay Owenhouse magic show. We were also given some money for dinner. What a fun “free” date night. I have never been to a magic show before.… Read the rest

Speedster

Yes, this is about me, Jessica, and how crazy fast I am at running. They call me the speedster! Yeah right, not in this lifetime. Although I am happy with the times I put up as I know I work my hardest, I am not the speedster.… Read the rest

The Number 24

I woke up at 5:00 in the morning on the 5th for a run. What a better way to start off your birthday (besides sleeping in)? Things started to go wrong. I didn’t have a good nights sleep. Getting up when all you want to do is sleep is not much fun.… Read the rest

Little Feet

Isaiah 6:8

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

God asked us to go. I want to be continually saying, “Here am I!… Read the rest

A Smile to Remember

A picture worth a thousand words. (If only I knew a thousand to describe it.) She is standing with her arm stretched out towards you with the biggest smile you have ever seen on a child. Between her little fingers is a bubble wand.  … Read the rest
