After the ten hour drive from Sulphur Springs, Texas to Nashville, Tennessee yesterday, I have had a pretty eventful 24 hours. Here are some of the highlights:
-I got to hug the necks and see the big smiles on my parents face when I pulled up to their house.
-I got to see the new car I bought last week for the first time. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I got a new car, a used 2008 Hyundai Sonata.
-We got to eat at arguably the restaurant that holds the majority of my childhood, restaurant memories. The restaurant is called “Strattons” in Ashland City, TN.
-I woke up at 5:30am this morning to run 14 of the hardest miles of my life. There were tons of HUGE hills (on the verge of calling them mountains) that we had to run down and up. That was nothing compared to the weather. The temperature never got above 30F. It was dark; it was windy; it was brutal.
-I traded in our junky (but very mechanically sound) 1999 Toyota Corolla…and actually got money for it!
-Started the conference and heard one of the most challenging, powerful messages of my life (by Francis Chan) that rocked me to my core.
It has been a busy 24 hours. I know I will sleep hard and well tonight.
