Weiser Edition - Wordless Wednesday

I know I've been MIA for a couple of weeks... so much to catch you up on!  I had a birthday, my sister turned 40, plus, I'm visiting my folks for 10 days in southern Idaho... we are already having a fabulous time!  Their yard is basically a park!  My girls are having a ball.  I'll catch you up on the rest soon, until then here are some pics from our first day here...

Meditation for Wordless Wednesday

I came across the quote below while praying at Adoration this morning. It really gave me pause as I think we all so often tend to pray for God to change something - ourselves, some circumstance, the world, etc...  and I think I need to let it marinate, resonate, percolate in my brain today.

I do not ask you, Jesus, to change what is to be.
Rather, in whatever there is to be,
let me find Your will,
Your holiness,
and Your opportunity for me to grow.
Fr. Benedict Groeschel

Summertime Glory

On the heals of my post last night where I was wallowing in my pool of self-pity, God reminded me of His greatness.  A summer storm started rolling in just after I posted and it was BEAUTIFUL!


And instead of the darkening sky matching my mood, I found my mood lightening as I was reminded of the majesty of God, the beauty of this creation, and that my end goal is not here but with Him in heaven... and if part of getting there is the small trial of tendonitis... well, I better buck up and handle it with a little more grace.

"O Lord, how manifold are your works!

In wisdom you have made them all;

the earth is full of your creatures.

May the glory of the Lord endure forever,

may the Lord rejoice in his works.

I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;

I will sing to my God all my life"
(Psalm 104:24, 31, 33)

Summertime blues

This should be about summertime lovin'... But unfortunately it's about my being in a funk. This has been my workout routine lately:

I seem to only be able to get one run in feeling okay and then am icing, massaging, and taking ibuprofen. I had a nice 10 miler last weekend but fought soreness in my Achilles all week. I didn't run during the week hoping to get it feeling better, but I "raced" on Saturday and really struggled.... It was six days between runs and still I am hurting so bad today (2 days later) that the thought of trying to move faster than a gimp makes me wince.

Yes... I am whining. I have been so focused on getting ready for a half this summer and my times are getting faster than they have been since I had kids - so it makes it extra challenging to be struggling like this. I'm beginning to wonder if a half marathon is in the cards for the summer or if I just need to take some extended time off my feet (running anyway) to let my foot heal up.  *****sigh****

I'll be better adjusted about this once I've had a couple of days to process it. Tonight I'm just in a funk.
