New Year, New Blog

Alright...(deep breath)...let's try this again. I attempted to get this blog started a few months ago--we see where that went. But...it's a new year! And, therefore, the beginning of a new blog. Because this year is the beginning of good, good things. I trust God in that, and I would be lying if I said I wasn't really excited about what it holds.
For example, I just finished my first half-marathon two weeks ago. Yes, that is 13.1 miles of pounding feet on pavement. I literally cannot explain the feeling that comes with crossing that finish line! Besides the one that screams, "WHERE is the water? I need food. I need to sit down. Are my legs still there?"
I finished in 2 hours and 10 minutes, and believe me, I'm not taking credit for any of that. That was all God (and yes, a couple months of training); my legs would not have moved so quickly so long without Him. So.. first goal of the year=accomplished!
I would spill all of my secrets and favorite quotes and goals and life lessons in this first blog, but I don't want to. I'm saving them for later. Because actually continuing this blog is another one of my goals for the year, and I'm going to do it. So more about what God is doing in my life--and others'--to come later! (although I can't be promising another half-marathon anytime soon--I'm giving these limbs a break).
