A Runner’s Thoughts: I have two thoughts for you today… Remember that if we are meditative movers through life, if we are movers at prayer then as we live each day we will be fortunate to have find ways to refreshes not only our bodies but also our spirits. You might say with the living of each day we give ourselves the chance to be born again in friendship with God! (Adapted from Roger Joslin – Running the Spiritual Path) – “You only ever grow as a human being if you're outside your comfort zone.” (Percy Cerutty)
A Runner’s Thoughts: “The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person’s determination.” (Tommy Lasorda)
A Runner’s Thoughts: Let us remember that if we live life on the spiritual path, God is the source of our strength, God is our footpath, and God is the finish line. If we live life consciously, with the intention to move closer to the presence of God, then our movement, the actions of our daily life become a profession of our faith! (Adapted from Roger Joslin, Running the Spiritual Path)
A Runner’s Thoughts: “The human spirit is indomitable. No one can ever say you must not run faster than this or jump higher than that. There will never be a time when the human spirit will not be able to better existing records.” (Roger Bannister)
A Runner’s Thoughts: Let us live life today in the present moment, not running from something or to something. Let us strive to live a grace-filled life today. Let us live life today with God! (Adapted from Roger Joslin – Running the Spiritual Path)
A Runner’s Thoughts: In an ancient rabbinic saying it is said that when we humans begin a journey, we are preceded by angels crying, “Make way! Make way! Here comes the image of God!” So, as we live life today let us remember that we are the image of God!
A Runner’s Thoughts: Samuel Shoemaker once said, “Prayer may not change things for you, but it for sure changes you for things.”
A Runner’s Thoughts: A smile as we live life today can help us remain focused, it often causes others to smile back which can be uplifting and perhaps most importantly it can remind us that that we have been graced by God. So, as we live life today let’s put a smile on our face!
