Leggin’ it

This was Race Weekend in Ottawa. I guess there was a 10K on Saturday, then other marathons on Sunday–full marathon, half marathon, marathon-and-a-half… or something like that. All I know is, my brother ran 40K in under 4 hours! I … Continue reading

the unimportant things of life?

Just since that last post, I’ve come across 3 or 4 scripture references–the references only–that I knew what they were. It seems it’s the things you learn as a youth that stay with you! Speaking of youth, I may not … Continue reading
