It is time to start writing on this blog again. This blog has become terribly stale since I haven’t posted anything since 2009. Wow! It sure has been a while.

So, to catch the random lurker up to speed, here is what you have missed.

My family has grown. Jack is 2 1/2 years old and Henry was born on Dec. 30th, 2010, so he is just about 5 months old. Jack and Henry are amazing kids, and I love them more than I can even begin to share.

I have also started a New testament reading plan. It is a one year plan, so the amount of reading each day is minimal. But, I am looking forward to thinking about a shorter piece of scripture each day. And this is one of the reasons I am starting this blog back up again, to to share my thoughts as I read through the New Testament. I found that blogging through the Old Testament really helped me process what I was reading.

Last July I also started running and am still running today. I have done a number of 5K’s, and finished a half-marathon on April 6th, 2011. Running has truly changed my life. I am healthier than I have been in a long time, and I have an activity that I truly love. I am also hoping to run a full marathon by the end of this year or early next year.
