Melbourne Half Marathon

a Biblical thought...
"Because you're not yet taking God seriously," said Jesus. "The simple truth is that if you had a mere kernel of faith, a poppy seed, say, you would tell this mountain, 'Move!' and it would move. There is nothing you wouldn't be able to tackle." (Matt 17:20)

a Book thought...
People who have a deep passion for their ideas don't need a lot of encouragement. One yes in a sea of no's can make the difference. (p151 MacKenzie)
a Dave thought...
This morning I competed in the Melbourne Half Marathon and ran a respectable 1 hour 44 minutes. It was a lot of fun with many from Box Hill Salvos a part of the 7000 competitors, the largest field ever in Australia. Congratulations to Sarah Franks, John Evans, Andy White, Wes Collinson, Chris Lewis, Dustin Lewis, Jake Lewis and especially Emma Lewis who put in a monumental effort to complete her first 21km event. A few of us then stayed behind to watch Envoy Fiona Kean compete her first full Marathon in 4 Hours and 20 minutes. It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of great conversations and saw many incredibly determined people cross the line. Although we didn't get to a formal worship setting this morning I thank God for the ability to run and interact with His environment in such an enjoyable way.

Just a thought.
