After the Youth Ministry students spent two minutes answering, “What is the meaning of life?” plus the followup questions I asked as a professional facilitator, it was time…
I said, “Ask me“.
Effortlessly and instantaneously, “To love and be loved.”
If we only love, and get nothing back, we will dry up.
If we only receive love, we are selfish.
Love here, there, and everywhere.
At Saturday’s Run Among the Lakes 5k, there was an unexpected surprise.
One of the sponsors, First Baptist Church of Windermere had a booth with free Barnie’s Coffee.
After the 5k race and a Chick-fil-a (another sponsor) breakfast biscuit, I visited the booth for a cup.
That’s where the book, Finishing Strong, caught my attention.
What a metaphor for running a 5k.
What a metaphor for life.
The back cover stated, “One man in ten will finish strong. You can be that man.”
One in ten? That’s it? How can it be such a low number?
