What I find most interesting is how both have changed my life. Both have introduced me to people I would have never met. Both have given me opportunities I would have never had. I think differently both because of the law and because of running for a long time. Both require planning, and planning for multiple scenarios.
Our family is in another race as well. Our "adoptive" daughter Addis, will have her second round of chemo this Friday. It's really Addis' race, but we're all in it in some fashion. It is changing our lives. We have been introduced to people we would have never met, and really wish we didn't need to. It is changing the way we think; requiring planning for multiple scenarios. Opportunities? We believe that in all things, God is working in 1000 different ways to bring Himself glory and give us joy. We will wait and watch.
