ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZ


ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZ

someday i am going to be there to watch you Barrett

SWIM 1.5 MILES from Alcatraz Island
in the frigid waters of San Francisco Bay

BIKE 18 miles down the Great Highway

RUN 8 miles in the Golden Gate Rec Area

what a beautiful race...
what a gifted athlete...
i have you on video when you were 5 years old
riding on your bike in our driveway
going round and round in circles tirelessly
and you said---
i am going to grow up and be really fast
and you did
and you are...

we give THANKS for you
to the One who made you FAST

His beauty lies in our world..

OH girlfriend.... I hear it in your voice... yes.. we trust in the Lord but does it make the walk easy.. NO.. sometimes we want to scream out.. OH LORD.. I believe my help my disbelief...

and we can be hurt so much by the very ones we love so dear...In your husband's work... I'm sure he is going to have to walk through forgiveness, isn't he? and you too. because no matter what.. it hurts like crazy....

I have read waking the dead.. what an awesome book...

forgive the one liners.. I can't do it either...

I will be praying for you.. because I too have been right where you guys have been many years ago... and yes.. I came out with much fruit abounding.. but it still hurt... but God was so faithful...it's like childbirth. hurts like the dickins' but what a beautiful gift... wouldn't want to do it again, but you would for the gift...

blessings sweet one...

thanks sweet connie...
i will never be struggle free
but i want to struggle well
to wrestle with my
awesome Lord
who has so showed up in my life...
God orchestrated a new job
for my husband
to get me to a better place with Him and if it was just for that
it has been way more than
worth it...
i may be a mess
but i am a glorious mess
because of Who lives inside me

Praying for Our Friend Joanne Psalm 131:3 Waiting on God. Hope Now. Hope Always.
