I need to focus on sticking to my plan. I get excited and love to do more. This weekend my training plan only had me doing 6 miles on my “long run,” and I decided to do 8. Brian has been reminding me of the purpose of a training plan- to slowly build miles. Just because I CAN run 10 miles doesn’t mean that I SHOULD run 10 miles. I will have plenty of time to run in the coming months, so I just need to focus on sticking to my plan, fueling properly, and staying healthy.
Brian and I had a meeting this morning for our mission trip to West Virginia this summer. We began a new fundraiser called “Nails for Service.” We have one group of kids going to West Virginia and another group going to Belize this summer. Church members have the opportunity to purchase a nail that we will take on the trip with us. Nails are $1 each, or $50 for a box. Brian made the poster for it yesterday and it looks AWESOME:
As of this morning, we already made hundreds of dollars! So awesome! We are headed out to church this afternoon. Brian is doing sound for the 4:00 service and has to be at practice at 2:30. I am going to go with him and sit in the sanctuary to read my Bible and pray for our precious babies.
As a new week begins in Ethiopia, I am feeling so anxious and my babies are so heavy on my heart. I have had the date of March 3rd in my head and on my heart for months now. I have no idea why, but I have been thinking about this date and praying about this date. Now that the day is here, I have just felt so burdened today. I wonder, are my babies being brought into our agency’s care today? Are they being born? Conceived? I feel like SOMETHING is going on. I am absolutely covering my sweet babies in prayer- praying that they are safe, that they are healthy, and that they feel loved. I am trusting in the power of prayer and that our Lord’s mighty hands are reaching from here all the way to Africa. Oh, how I love my babies.
