"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." -Teddy Roosevelt

Hi All, just letting you know that I am leaving for Germany in a few hours!! Coolhuh?? Ya my family and I are going to be with some Americans for the Holidays, so I f I do not get internet access befor the 25th have a totally wicked Christmas!!! Eat lots of food and junk (go for a run to burn it off) have tons of fun with family and friends, wish Jesus a happy Birthday, and do not forget why we are celebrating. Tell someone who does not know about jesus how to get saved, give more gifts then you could ever get, and remember our troops overseas. Ya, our spiritual troops overseas too!!! :) Have fun!!! And sorry to anyone I have not sent a card to yet, as you can see between Christmas, Dealing with stuff at church over the weekend, and taking a long excersion to Germany you just slipped through the cracks.
Courage is being able to go from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.

So, life is cool, seriously. We have been having really nice warm weather, but tons of mud. Ua mud!!! I'm talking, scrape your shoes off every 8th of a mile while running, mud; but thank God he cooled it off last Friday and yesterday I did my coldest run so far this year: -17, or -4 for those of you in the W. Hemisphere. Ya, it was an awesome, all be it, short 5.5 miler. Hey, serious running is the only kind, all others are joggers!!! The Creator made our bodies with amazing adaptivity!! The Devil has been attacking on all fronts, but hey, God is Bigger!!!!!!!!!! Please pray for my brother as he is going through a very hard spiritual battle right now. This morning we had a great victory at church!! Praise the LORD!! Last Saturday I taught our kids club and I taught Sunday school last Sunday too. Nothing like hands on training. Speaking of the cold, it started snowing last Saturday and kept going for six days straight and at the moment we have between 12 and 16 inches. Cool huh?? I got to go. Encourage yourself in the LORD!!!!!!
