8 One Thousand Gifts Week 4

This Saturday, Nate and I ran in the Warrior Dash in East Texas! 
 Here are some pictures of things that we did during our 5K. . .
Jump over fire. . .
Crawl through the mud under barbed wire. . . 
Swim over railroad ties. . . 
Slide down a muddy embankment. . . 
Climb over a rope tower. . .
And after the race, everyone donates their shoes! 
Here is a picture that Nate snapped of me in the parking lot after the race. . . I was a lot muddier than it looks!
It was such a great day and, more than anything, it was fun to do this race with Nate!

On another note, Easter is approaching and I am so excited about celebrating my Savior's resurrection. Yesterday, our preacher discussed how 64 percent of Americans 18 years of age and older do not believe in absolute truth. . .
but . . . 
I know that, I know that, I know that Jesus was born of a virgin, lived as a perfect man on earth, was crucified for my sins, died and was buried in a tomb, and 3 days later raised from the dead to be with His father in heaven.
Thank you Jesus for your ultimate sacrifice and I pray each day that "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me." Galatians 2:20
4. How I have to look for Gus when I step off the bed or off the couch because he is normally sleeping right under me. I adore his unconditional love and loyalty!
Pin It!


  1. Fire?! Barbed wire?!??! You are hardcore! I love it! :)

  2. WOW! so impressed yall did the warrior dash! IM not quite ready for that yet! thanks for your sweet comment about my bow frame! I LOVE your blog! I got connected to it through my friend Casey Weigands blog!:) Thanks for your heart and for all that you share! Blessings!

  3. Wow! I was gonna say that you are hardcore too! I mean, husband & wife time is great and all, but I probably would have settled for eating some ice cream by the pool, ha! So fun!

  4. All I can say is WOW to that race! It looked like a lot of work, but a whole LOT of fun, too. I loved the pictures! Thank you for sharing those. I, too, have to watch when I step out of bed or put my recliner down. Buster is ALWAYS there.

  5. I am impressed! Popping over from Ann's. :) My husband is trying to talk me into the Warrior Dash here, but I'm not so sure!


  6. I’m here from Ann’s today, and first, I admire your certainty. I have it to but it came after years and years of doubt.

    And I have to always be on the lookout for Laska the Love kitty – who loves crossing paths and darting out of corners – and sleeping by my face. Although Laska’s not very big on dogs – sorry.

    God Bless and Keep you and all of yours.

  7. Wow !!!! Looks like you had a great time thanks for sharing your thankfulness ....its great to come together and share the goodness of GOD
