You Can Be Cute Or…(aka Happy Independence Day!!!)
You Can Get It Done….
I chose to get it done…It wasn’t pretty, but I just completed the Peachtree Road Race in 1 hour, 11 minutes and 53 seconds, my personal best :)
On this Independence Day, I thank God for my country and those in the government, armed forces, etc. who make it safe for us to enjoy ourselves at the Peachtree Road Race (a hallowed tradition in the A) every year. As my father, the pastor of Central Christian Church, reminded us yesterday, those who are in the government are actually God’s ministers to us…
“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God… For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience. ” Romans 13: 1-5Have a blessed day :) and don’t each too much!Any thoughts?
