One sibling photo a week throughout the year. 36/52

“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2

There are many things to chase.

Gratification, success, money, achievement.

Wholeness, gratitude, humility, wisdom.

Perfection, popularity, affirmation, praise.

Wonder, endurance, connection, freedom.

Pride, thrill, busy, more.

Truth, compassion, simplicity, faithfulness.

Let me not forget soccer balls and super-hero status.

Today, I wonder, what are you chasing?


Update on run/walk goal for week 36 (the goal is to complete at least 10 miles per week): 13.5 Run/Walk miles traveled, 420.5mi in 2015
