July. 1st month of Quirky Faith is just about finished. I have some random photos I took over the month I figured I'd share to wrap up the month.
Just a walk in the park. One month to go until this year's Portland to Coast. I've been flirting around with training for this relay over the past couple of months. Last week, I panicked a bit when I got my race assignment. Three separate legs of the relay totaling 19 miles. Um. My four mile a week training schedule is clearly not sufficient. Last Saturday I finally got in a six mile hilly practice. Still panicked. However, this pathway did a lot to restore my soul. Fresh air and gorgeous trees generally provide a reset in my life.
Just a little public service announcement that not everything cute in the world is good for you. We have a family of raccoons living in our yard. Darling. Seriously scary. My cat is such a tough boy because he routinely holds his own with these guys. He has a few scars and a mangled ear to prove it. I love my cat but I gotta admit he's not going to win any beauty contests. But his mellow temperament makes him quite the dapper man. Some cute things will scratch and claw and cause great havoc. And I'm not just talking about the raccoon. I'm hoping my daughters learn this lesson early in life. Go for heart quality, meh on the cute.
Just a little fish story. Really I have nothing to add to this photo.
Just Saying My husband believes that the phrase "Just Saying" is an annoying way for people to get away with rude conversation and insults. However, I'm going to live dangerously and use that phrase to get away with talking about politics. Hey!! Guess what everyone. We survived both the RNC and DNC conventions! I think I still have friends on both sides of the aisle (and some friends fleeing the building to avoid picking the groom or the bride). Here's my tip for the next three months:
Be nice, people! We are all stuck with each other.
Just some shameless Quirky Faith marketing. Our good friends of ours invited us over for pizza, pie and production. We sat in their dining room and made Quirky Faith buttons. Really this picture is a great analogy for the whole point of Quirky Faith. My life is lived out sharing with friends amidst random childhood clutter and some of my garbage and a big pile of fun work. And in the corner is Christmas. All year long I live in joy that Jesus came. Emmanuel. God with us. Not just in July.
I love Jesus. I think my two daughters can change the world. I think you can too.
