Two Photos. Two Memories. Two Healings.

Two Photos. Two Memories. Two Healings. This morning I ran my 800 mile of 2020. My Laura and I have experienced many ups and downs along our crazy beautiful journey. One of those ups is Laura Geddes Paez, pictured with Laura and I at one of our book signings last year. Laura P. was more like a little sister to Laura and I. Laura P. and her wonderful husband René walked through many ups and downs with us. In turn, we walked through some major storms with them. I remember when Laura P. got sick, we declared that one day when our bodies recovered from the battles we were facing, we would run a marathon together. We were both looking forward to that day. Last November, I received my healing. Earlier this year, my dear friend received her healing. Not in the way we had hoped. No, my dear sister received the ultimate healing. No more pain or suffering. So when I run, I am not running alone. No, my dear friend Laura P. is running with me. ~OC

Saddened

I continue to be saddened that our unity in Christ is less valued than political positions. How have political convictions come to matter more than whole hearted devotion to Jesus? So many identify as a devotee of a political party or leader rather than a follower of Jesus. ~OC

Running Out My Miracle

A year ago, I weighed 112, pounds and the doctors gave me a few months to live. Then God did a miracle. Today, I completed my 500th mile this year. Next up, 1,000 miles. We serve an amazing Savior. ~OC

Human Trafficking

With all the news about the upcoming elections, the economy and COVID19, let’s not forget the millions of victims of human trafficking. ~OC

Not a Elephant or Donkey

Good morning everyone! This week, I received an email that basically called into question my faith based on someone’s assumptions about my political views. I have never actually had a conversation with this person about my political views, but I guess they decided I did not show enough support for their candidate. I am basically apolitical. I do not belong to a political party. Before each election, I take the time to educate myself on each of the candidates and issues. Then I vote my conscience. I could care less if you support a elephant or donkey. I would rather know about you, your family and how I can help/pray for you. I have chosen not to respond to the email at this time. I will pray about it and see if it is actually worth my time and effort. Thanks for letting me share. ~OC

A few thoughts on True Friendship:

*True friends encourage you.
*True friends respect you.
*Tue friends support you.
*True friends stand by you.
*True friends reach out to you.

*True friends love you.
*True friends dance through the storms with you.

Obviously, this is just a small sample. Feel free to share your own list. ~OC

Truth, Hope and Love

Today’s a new day! The world is hurting. Violence, Hate and Disease seem to be running rampant. People are scared. People are frustrated. People are looking for something real. People are looking for hope. People are looking at Christians.

As Christians, we have a tremendous opportunity to share real love and hope to a hurting world. Will you step out of your comfort zone and help share the true hope and love of Jesus with a hurting world or will you let this amazing opportunity pass, as you sit on your hands and complain about the church doors being closed? ~OC

Faith

Today’s a new day! The enemy uses storms to destroy your faith. God uses storms to build your faith. ~OC
