I'm Running?!?!?! Seriously???

Yes, it's true. I have starting running. I'm consistent too...I've gone to the gym the past two days in a row, lol! I decided it was time that i got off my unemployed butt, and actually tried to get back into shape; not just to stay healthy, but to improve my archery. I've been shooting since I was 18. I picked it up really fast, but I hit a wall a few years ago, and just couldn't quite make it to the top on a National scale. I was so frustrated, i almost gave up for two years. This fall I decided it was time to get serious again, and really work at improving my game. Running is something I've thought about many times over the years, but I never had the motivation to actually do it... till now. I started running Tuesday, and although I'm very very sore, I think its already starting to help me :^) 300-28x's (2 x's off a perfect score)...
2 Days in a row!
I'm really excited to see what's in store in the coming months. This past winter I've improved quite a bit, and I really think I am on the verge of a serious breakthrough in my game... I can't wait!

New Car

This week, i've been looking at cheap, beater cars. Something under $2500, and gets at least 25 mpg. Yesterday, I test drove a 1991 Toyota Tercel (32+ mpg), and a 1999 Mazda Protege (28ish mpg). I also called on a 2002 Audi, but the kis was asking too much, lol. Today, I pulled the Mazda into the shop, and everything looked good. I ended buying the car for $2200; $300 less than I thought :) He said it got 31 mpg on his last trip to Anchorage, so I was very happy with the car... Then later that night I got a text...
It was the kid with the Audi He must be pretty desperate to sell the car, because he asked me again if I would consider buying it. After talking for an hour, I finally offered him $5000. He said $5000 was too low, and he would have to think about how low he would be willing to go. So, being the nice guy that I am, I let him sweat for a bit, then started dropping hints that I was looking at other cars as well. I told him that he was asking for more than it boked out at, and I offered $6000. He said he would let me know if it was still for sale next week.
So having said that, I guess I have two prayer requests. 1-that the Lord would show me want he would have me do. Assuming the kid says yes. 2-If he does allow me to buy the Audi, that I would be able to sell the Mazda.

So thats what my weekend has been like. Hope everyone has a great Sunday :)

Psalm 95:1-11 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work. Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways: Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.

I remember singing this in church when I was little. It was one of my favorite songs. I loved the way the music and the singing sounded... it's been years sincee I've sang this song, or even thought about this verse. Reading it in OBC's devotion cast a whole new light on it. First the first time I understood what it was saying, and how powerful those words are. We serve a GREAT God! May we never forget to bow down and worship our LORD, our God, our maker. For he is our God!
