Disappointed
Monday, June 30, 2008      5 comments

The German soccer team lost in the finals against an excellent Spanish team, and, even though I know it's just a game, I feel disappointed for them. The captain of the team has yet to win a big international title, even though he has come close ... Read more
Progress

I've been limiting my online and Spark time lately and just noticed that I haven't blogged in two weeks. So I'll do a quick entry on my way over to the forum for my Old Testament course. I have to submit a short essay as part of my second progre... Read more
Results
Tuesday, June 03, 2008      3 comments

The race results from Saturday have been posted on the sponsors' website. I was not last! But number 100 (a nice round figure!) of 102 with a time of 54:18. I really thought I had finished last of the runners, but there were two women who finish... Read more
Finished
Sunday, June 01, 2008      6 comments

I survived! On the way to the race, a huge thunderstorm complete with thunder and lightning came up and I was beginning to think that the race would be cancelled. But by the time I got to the start, it had cleared up - and the temperature had dr... Read more
Off to the races

I'm about to get in the car and drive down to Stuttgart for the 7K race. Prayers appreciated! I'm feeling pretty good, although my left ankle has been bothering me some (bursitis?) Pray that I won't try to be a hero if it gives me trouble! ... Read more
Course?
Sunday, May 25, 2008      1 comments

A friend and I drove down to the area where the run is going to be next Saturday evening. There are so many trails that it was impossible to determine what course the organizers are planning for the 7K race, but we had a good 50-minute run. It w... Read more

Not much new to report. I worked a lot of hours at the language school this past week. It's spring break for the German schools so many of my regular students are on vacation. We "fill in the blanks" with kids English day camp. The group was rel... Read more
OT
Saturday, May 10, 2008      2 comments

On message boards OT stands for Off-Topic, but OT has a different meaning when you're going to seminary - Old Testament! I've kind of been putting off taking the two survey courses since I started studying again a few years ago. But 6 hours of O... Read more

I did it - registered online for a 7K race on May 31st. One little click and I've made the commitment! It's a women's race and will be held in the evening. I like that - no missing church, for one thing. It's also better than a morning race beca... Read more
Zoo
Friday, April 25, 2008      1 comments

I decided to take a couple of hours off from everything and go to the zoo after teaching my English lessons yesterday. I was hoping to get to see the new polar bear cub, Wilbaer, but he only comes out between 11 and 3. The good part of that is t... Read more
Sleep as Sabbath
Tuesday, April 22, 2008      5 comments

This is a long one - it's about sleep from a Biblical standpoint. I wanted to post it here because getting enough sleep has been an ongoing struggle for me the past year or two. I translated this article from the German. If you don't have time t... Read more
Almost 1 Year!

The Spark Class Team of April 15-21 is celebrating our one year "Sparkiversary" beginning today. As team leader (by default, as our other leaders are no longer active), I decided to post mini-challenges for each day of the "class reunion" week.... Read more
Run Another Day
Thursday, April 10, 2008      4 comments

The race on Sunday is off for me. The other music leader at church emailed me to ask if I would fill in and lead for him this Sunday. I'll run 5K in the afternoon "just for fun" but racing will have to wait for another day. Fortunately, there wi... Read more
Three Conversations
Sunday, April 06, 2008      5 comments

I had three interesting and challenging conversations this week. I love it when God arranges divine appointments! The first was at the language school on Wednesday. I teach a regular group in the evening and only one of the 4 members showed up -... Read more
Run Run
Sunday, April 06, 2008      0 comments

Thomas from my home group has agreed to run with me next week, if the weather is good. It's so changeable right now. I'd pretty much run in any weather except pouring rain but am hoping for partly cloudy and cool like right now. I'm heading out ... Read more
