How are you doing with the "30-Day Husband Encouragement Challenge"? In case you've forgotten, here's the challenge:
* You can't say anything negative about your husband . . . to your husband, or to anyone else.
* Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband . . . to your husband and to someone else.

"But who can find a faithful man?" (Proverbs 20:6b)
Faithfulness is a wonderful but rare quality today, especially in regard to marriage. Do you understand how important this quality is? Your challenge is to continue to root out all negative speaking, and plant seeds of encouragement instead. You may be amazed at what will grow.
Contemporary culture often entices men to be unfaithful to their wedding vows and spiritual commitments. Appreciate your husband's faithfulness--how he is loyal to you. Let him know that you are glad he has "stick-to-it-iveness" in your marriage. Appreciate his faithfulness to God.
If you have an unfaithful husband, this is a difficult area for you. Pray, speak the truth in love, remain faithful yourself, and discover ways to encourage faithfulness in your mate. The Bible says that husbands may "be won by the conduct of their wives" (1 Peter 3:1b). You may also want to seek counsel from a mature, godly individual or couple.
Not much to report here.
I am in the process of revising my goal for Boston. My plan has been abandoned, but I am still keeping up with the trainer bike and lifting. I also have a regimen of applied heat and massage to the injured part of my foot 3 X a day. Yesterday I got out of the house and walked on it a bit.
Are you brave???
Still looking for your funny / bad race photos! Please let me know if you post any and I'll post a link here to them. =D
