Had another good run today. A bit warmer but that's how it goes with weather in East Texas. I ran out at Faulkner Park on the bike trails. There are more and more bikers out there especially in this gorgeous weather. So far no collisions!!!!!

On today's run I was reflecting on the readings for this Sunday. I think it all comes down to a basic question. Is what I am about to do God's plan or my plan? We can apply that to all of our choices and I think it will help a lot.

I'm trying to include a picture from last year when I had a chance to run in the Italian countryside in the Tuscany area. If the picture doesn't make it I guess you'll just have to use your imagination!!
