Kit off to the buses — for the Boston Marathon

Kit -- off to the buses at 6:15 a.m.

Good Morning, God!

Aiee! My Sweetie Pie is off to run a Marathon! And not just ANY Marathon — the Boston Marathon!

I’m Very Proud of him, God, as I should be. But, this is also my “love gift” to him — that I send him off joyfully — because I know he LOVES it.

As You know, God, I am not a big risk taker. And when it is Kit, I would prefer no risk at all. But, that is not what life is about. Risk is everywhere — I just don’t like seeing it.

Yet, how would we Pray, God — without awareness? How would we Trust in You, God — without knowing the Path we walk? So, God, I AM PRAYING for Kit to have a good SAFE run! And, yes, God, all of the other runners, too.

58 of them are from Hawaii and they will be spending the time from when the buses get them up to Hopkinton until they leave in their Wave at the Hawaii House. Kit’s wave leaves at 10:40 a.m. He will be praying with one of the youngest runners — who asked him to do that. Thank You, God! I got to meet her and two friends as we walked across the Gardens — bless her too!

One more thought about “loved ones at risk” God: it makes me realize just HOW IMPORTANT Kit are to me! It is all too easy, God, to take Loved Ones for granted. Risk makes Love CLEAR to us.

Life here, is not forever, God. Please let that awareness make me value it more. Ah, God, please increase my GRATITUDE!
