end of October already?

What a busy month!  Finished a 10k, went to KC, attempted to rescue a kitten, joined the tech team at church…

The 10k was the 17th.  It was the Go! St Louis Halloween 10k.  We got to dress up, which was fun and some people had some very interesting imaginations!  I just did my face up as a cat, nothing fancy.  But the coolest thing about what I wore was the pants!  Just simple black yoga/lounge pants from Fashion Bug, but they were a Large!  When I started losing weight I was in a 1X!  I was so excited! The first item of clothing I had purchased!  Can’t wait to have the $ to do more shopping.

I finished the race 5th from last.  Not too proud of that, but hey, I finished!  1:58:31 and I had a goal of under 2 hours.  made it!  I cut about 1:30 off my 5k pace from April, so that’s really cool.  I’m going to stick with 5k’s for awhile and I started training to run some of them.  Races are addicting, and so fun.  BTW – 10k = 6.2 miles.

There was a kitten at work who was badly injured, not sure by what.  She was tiny, dehydrated and in a lot of pain.  I took her to the vet and tried to nurse back to health at home, but she didn’t make it.  It was really sad.  But, I tried and at least she passed away in a warm bed instead of on the cold and dirty warehouse floor of the plant.

Went to KC last weekend to help with another Hopefest, like the one we did in Denver a couple months ago.  All went well.  something like 150 people answered the alter calls and 15 or so were baptized!  We got rained out 3 hours early on Saturday though.  It was nice to get home a little earlier and miss the Mizzou traffic (go Tigers!), but we could have reached more people.  Oh well, God’s in charge and we did what we were supposed to do! 

Tonight we have our own outreach at church, our annual fall festival.  Should be fun, even though its cold!

I really love photography and computer stuff, so I joined the tech team at church to help out.  I think this further solidifies my membership in the geek community, and that’s cool with me 🙂

So, October… last year it was my darkest month.  I came face-to-face with the depression monster and started fighting.  What a difference a year makes!  To explain all that the Lord has done with me in 12 months, wow, we’d be here awhile.  But if you’ve been following for awhile, you should have an idea.  I’m not at all saying everything is rainbows and brownies and kittens, but things are good.  I’m excited about things that are going on in my life, not just sitting around wondering when it will all end.  I hope if you know me personally, you can tell a difference.  Not just physically with the 34+ pounds I’ve lost, but in my attitude and actions too.

I want to be as open as possible, safely anyway. If I've been set free in something, maybe I can encourage someone else to seek God and they can be free too!
