And also

Wow, the feeling of looking back and forth at the me and the you's and the them's of the past, be that yesterday or 10 years ago... It's like flying.

Kind of like the thing we did at ST... There's such a sense of freedom - I don't know if I could describe "soaring" in any better way. All that's on our side is to trust and obey... haha "all that's on our side", as if it's simple. But then, it is in some ways isn't it?

Do you not know?
       Have you not heard?
       The LORD is the everlasting God,
       the Creator of the ends of the earth.
       He will not grow tired or weary,
       and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
       and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
       and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
       will renew their strength.
       They will soar on wings like eagles;
       they will run and not grow weary,
       they will walk and not be faint.

--- Isaiah 40:28-31

What does it mean to soar on wings like eagles? Once in a while, through His grace, we are allowed a small glimpse..

  1. What does it mean to run and not grow weary?

    .... maybe the shift of the "center" (emphasis on the quotes) of Christianity from America to Kenya explains Kenyan dominance in the marathon :O

    Look for some fast Chinese marathoners in the coming decades....
