Slow and Steady...

My marathoner/Iron Man husband woke up this morning to wish me luck on my kinda first race. (He talked me into one when we were dating when I was 18) His advice: Be the TURTLE...slow and steady!!!

Then I sat to have my morning devotion to see what the Lord had to say. I opened my Small Steps for Catholic Moms book for Oct 30th...

This is what it said:

"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose you inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset." St Francis De Sales

When I rush, I forget you, Lord. As many times as you need to today, push my "pause button." Slow my steps and turn my heart toward you.
Any time a child seeks your attention today, stop what you are doing and give it. Turn off the computer, hang up the phone, put down the dish towel, and listen. Through that small voice, God is speaking to you.

Well, what can I say? Running the Marian Corps 10K for VOCATIONS was great. I finished in 59.38. I froze my toes off. i had some great praise and worship music on and didn't kill myself. I was happy I didn't need to walk. Over all I am happy I did it.
