Bits from Bob
Spring is my favorite time of the year because I know the warm months are soon coming. April brings thoughts for me personally of the Boston Marathon. Last week was the running of the 120th Boston. I was blessed to participate five times and honored to race the 100th in 1996.
In front of me are some thoughts about marathons by Billy Graham: "Like the marathon runner, we are in it for the long haul. Our journey, our race, lasts as long as God GIVES US LIFE. We aren't meant to wander off the track, or quit and join the spectators, or decide we'll just slow down and TAKE IT EASY while others pass us by. Nor are we meant to collapse from exhaustion in the middle of the race. God didn't intend for us to travel our journey in our own strength, but with the strength He supplies."
Also, if you are looking for an inspirational book to read, check out Endurance by Ernest Shackleton. This is a true story about a journey to the south pole gone wrong.
Look forward to seeing many of you at the Ranch.
