Walking Billboard

"For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light." Psalm 36:9

A couple weeks ago there was a Facebook post that shared a game  of sorts. The person who posted it allowed this "Page" to review their Facebook to discover that  persons top personality traits. I have seen several other games that discover what Disney Character you are, What kind of a parent you are, and so forth.
It made me think "What kind of a Billboard am I". My curiosity got me and I actually allowed this page to review my Facebook. I was pleased with the results. Of course I am not the Facebook user that puts all her flaws on Facebook, I usually use my Blog for that!

It said I was an "Encourager" amongst other things. I love to encourage people. I love people. Some people are harder to love that others, but I know I am hard to LOVE for some also.

But it also "encouraged" me to take a look at who I Display.
What do others see in me? I studied the posts that I have been tagged in. The posts I had shared.  I reviewed the pictures I shared and I read several of the comments.

"My Billboard" is the same as My Testimony.

The list of my important facets in my Life go in this Order:
  1. God
  2. Family/Friends
  3. Health/Running
  4. Work
Keeping God at the top helps me to try and keep my testimony in all the other areas.

I fail often.
I am FAR from perfect.
I struggle daily

But what I REALLY wanted to see was "Could you tell by my posts, comments, tags that I Loved the Lord, Or did I look like the rest of the World? Do I look different?

I Should LOOK different. Not in a freakish way. But I should be "Set Apart"

My Billboard advertises my crazy and imperfect family.
My Billboard advertises my passion for running.
And Yes, without being "In YOUR FACE" my billboard does advertise my Love for the Lord.
(I heard a great quote today " The fastest way to become a Pharisee is to hate a Pharisee." I want people to see LOVE on my billboard)

"What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?" Mark 8:36

The Question is What does YOUR Billboard say?? Who are you? If you are a Christian could people tell? Are you set Apart without being judgement? Are you Set Apart and yet still love those that are not always so lovable, or a little different than you? 

Wednesday: GYM 7 miles, Intervals and hill workout on the TM.
Thursday: INDIAN SPRINGS with Danielle 10 miles. Great RUN and so glad to run with Danielle, it was too long.

So I am doing something I have NEVER done before. I normally do not run very often on my work days. I am on my feet all day and I am a wuss.
The only way I could get my long run in this weekend was to run SATURDAY AFTER WORK!
Lacey and I are going to meet and do the PollyAnn trail Saturday after working all day. 20 miles! Lots of people do this run after working all day, I can do this. I keep trying to talk my self into this! It will NOT be a FAST 20 miler but it will be a FUN one considering we will be finishing it up in the DARK!
I am not real familiar with the trails. I will have us LOST for sure. If anyone has information on the best place to park PLEASE let me know!
We will also be looking for a good place to eat, Suggestions appreciated!
