It was GOLDEN.
This week has been an exercise in holding on to Jesus with both hands.
I don’t even have words to describe the week, except perhaps to compare it to balancing 83 spinning plates while riding a rollercoaster backwards in a lightning storm every single moment. Highs and lows, sometimes simultaneously.
But we got there.
The day was beautiful. The weather was perfect. God’s presence was everywhere.
And I am thankful.
Thanks for giving thanks with me.

One thought on “Golden”
Oh what a treasure these photos are, and what a great turnout you had!! I loved your description of how the lead-up to Gold Run made you feel (I see you with eyes crossed and hair standing on end). And there were lots more pics that you couldn’t squeeze in. For every race entry, there is a family and friends that know more about childhood cancer than they did before. Loved watching Jase and Sawyer racing together. And the real winners were the Heroes and their families, regardless of their run times. I remember the first year, when Sawyer was too fragile to be exposed to many people, so he couldn’t be there. Practice breathing deeply, sipping coffee, and knowing how much Jesus and your friends love you ALWAYS!
