Morning Jogs

Every morning when Clint gets up for work at 5:45, I pull myself out of bed and put my running shoes on. (Sometimes I even beat him out of bed!) This morning, it was still foggy outside and the sun had not yet come up. Our neighborhood is called Riverside and Riverbluff condominiums. Unfortunately, we are on the Riverside section and we don't have a view of the river. But, every morning I run by the edge and can see the amazing view our neighbors across the street have! And this morning, the view was breath-taking! (I was running, so couldn't take a picture, sorry!) The sun began popping up over the fog rolling across the river. Views like this make me not understand how people don't believe in God! Its in these quiet morning moments ,when the rest of my neighborhood is still sleeping and I'm trudging up a hill to a perfect scene, that I realize how truly blessed I am!!
