Oh, holy night! The last Advent candle is the Jesus Christ candle, representing Christ himself, the light of the world. Merry Christmas everyone!

Week 4 of Advent. The love candle represents how much God loved us by sending us His son.

Stop. Think about it.

Advent week 3. The candle of joy symbolizes the angels joyfully singing about the birth of Christ.

Lighting these candles brings me joy! Week 2 of Advent. The candle of preparation. Prepare to receive the king!

Old, new, and thrifted threads. It’s Sunday. Let’s go to church!

Celebrate Advent with me! Today’s candle is the candle of hope. It represents faith in a God keeping his promises to man.

My unexpected lunch date..the tallest man in Texas. He stands at 7’4”, and 5’4” on his knees. He’s been that tall side he was 14! Wow!

Having tea cakes with Alice and the mad hatter. A lovely Sunday night.

The Houston Texans hosted a 5k, The Running of the Bulls, over the weekend. The route led us around the arena complex, through the tunnel, to the field. It was a bit of a bummer that the field wasn’t down, but it was still a great run. Plus, it was a great start to a game day where the Texans beat the Broncos 31-25, going 3-0 for the first time. GO TEXANS!

The timing of the race fit perfectly into where I am for my marathon training, so I switched my rest days up this week to get this in. I’m glad I did! Even with a couple of unexpected inclines, I managed to run my best time yet! My official time was 10:02/mi! I placed 92/376 for women my age group, and 1036/2903 for men & women overall. That’s 24th and 37th percentile respectively. Not too shabby!

It only gets better from here! Happy training!

Venture beyond what you know you can do, and soon you’ll know you can do more. Give yourself a solid, meaningful, positive challenge, and in working to meet that challenge you’ll encounter a more powerful you.
