Running and ruminating...

This morning's run was extra special. First of all I love the time I get outside alone with my year and a half old, Scarlett (aka: Red). She is always calm and smiley when we head outside. She hummms, talks, sings, looks for birds and just over all loves the outside but the whole time she is is only singing or talking to herself. Its like she knows that when we go running it is time to sort through whats going on in our heads. There with the sky blanketed around us and the birds our serenade, we run and think. Its amazing how thoughts drift toward the Lord and His magnificence. The further I run from all the man made and get lost in the God made, trees, wind, sun, the more I see Him more clearly. I hope that one day my daughter will be having the same thoughts. Maybe she already knows this and wonders why it takes me so long to be reminded. I will keep up these runs and hold on to the promise I find in Romans 1:20 "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made...."
