Never give up, never give in
Even writing asks for a break every now and then. So off we went, to Parker Arizona, for the 1st off-road race of this season. The guys had to replace the transmission during the race, definitely not an easy job! I watched their efforts curiously and learned a valuable lesson: endurance is everything. A few hours down time is a bummer, even in a 450 mile race, yet, no one gave up, no one gave in. They kept working, determined to get the car back on the course again. Winning was no longer possible, but finishing a must! And I am glad to announce we did, we collected our first points for 2008. The Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:11, strive for endurance. It is not something that comes automatically, we have to go after it. We live in a time where endurance has become a valuable virtue, people give up so easily; not everyone though!
We too have to run our best in the race of faith!

    Love your site, attempting to create one-haven't even figured out how to reduce size of my photo, yet! But as you say, never give up! Waiting to hear when I can get your newest book! Girl from church, Pat, (up here) just read your first book! She picked up your second one yesterday! Said the first one was so nice & easy to read! Keep up the great work!


Thanks for your visit, it is my hope and prayer that this post was an encouragement to you! Feel free to leave a comment.
