i'll start by saying that i'm a little jealous that i can't sing like this...then i'll say that this song is such a wonderful praise to sing to Christ for the sacrifice He made for us...i'm trying to keep that in the forefront of my mind more, having just celebrated easter. enjoy!

my first race

i'm NOT a runner...it pains me all over. but for some strange reason, i thought i could be one of those people that learns to like running...so i started running. do i like it? not even close! but my 'training' was cut short due to my head injury. after passing out, i tried barely running a few days later and it felt as though someone was shaking my brains around inside my skull...painful! but aaron and i had already signed up to run the redbud 5k...so we walked it. and i recruited my mom to walk it with us and it was actually quite fun! i'm looking forward to the day that i can actually run a 5k...maybe i'll like running by then! :) here we are apres le race
