Can't Give up Now

This song came on my ipod this afternoon. At the perfect time, just as I was rounding the hill at mile 7 and had convinced myself it would be fine to walk the last one.  I started smiling when I heard the words, then I kept running, or you could call it shuffling at that point.

When I made it to my car, I listened to it on the way home. I thought about alot of things besides running.  I thought about talking to my aunt this weekend about how good, but hard marriage is.  I thought about the long, loud discussion I had with my kid last night. I thought about this last long year at my church with my faith family.  I thought about how easy it is to slip back into my old ways.

I thought about all that, and then I rolled down the windows and turned this song up loud.  I sang the words as loud as I could. Yeah, God hasn't brought me this far to leave me.
