I've been searching for the best song for my playlist...I found it!! This is Alive Again by Matt Maher
I woke up in darkness
sounded by silence
oh where, where have I gone?
I woke to reality
losing its grip on me
oh where, where have I gone?
Cause I can see the light
before I see the sunrise
You called and you shouted
broke through my deafness
now I’m breathing in
and breathing out
I’m alive again!
You shattered my darkness
washed away my blindness
now I’m breathing in
and breathing out
I’m alive again!
They never loved you
you waited for me,
I searched for you…
what took me so long?
I was looking outside
as a love would ever want to hide
I’m finding I was wrong
Cause I can feel the wind
before it hits my skin
Cause I want you!
Yes, I want you,
I need you
And I’ll do what ever I have to
Just to get through
cause I love you
Yeah, I love you!

Running is the classical road to self-consciousness, self-awareness and self-reliance. Independence is the outstanding characteristic of a runner. She learns the harsh reality of her physical and spiritual limitations when she runs. She learns that personal commitment, sacrifice and determination are her only means to betterment. Runners get promoted only through self-conquest.

I found this quote and could not explain running any better!!!! I have blogged in the past about why I run, self fulfillment, is the best way I can describe it. Whether it is spiritual, physical, and or emotional, it all comes down to fulfillment! It gives me such purpose. To know that I have reached limits that most are too weak to try, gives me a sense of accomplishment!

I am however, looking for a new challenge and goal...any suggestions?!?!

Governor Bobby Jindal

Blake, Governor Bobby Jindal, and me

This was from the other night at a political party that we, along with 24 others, hosted. I was a bit nervous, I don't think I have ever met anyone political before. I didn't want to look or sound like an idiot. Well the looking like part was difficult, it was POURING down rain when we arrived-explanation of the nasty hair! We had a great time and everything turned out well. Other than being introduced all night as Blake's wife Rayne (pronounced Rain over here!) We enjoyed our time with the Governor and the night turned out well.

Yay! I am so excited, Jordan is the winner of Big Brother 11! I have been cheering for her and Jeff since day one! Mainly Jeff because he was SO good looking!!! I am pumped this sweet, cute, little waitress with a southern accent won!!

Biggest Loser started last night too. All I can say is OH MY. Not due to the contestant's sizes, but because of Abby's story. Abby lost her entire family, husband and 2 children in a car accident. To hear her open up and be so honest on national tv, to the details of wishing she had been in the car with them, is amazing. My heart hurts for this complete stranger. I am already hoping she wins this season. Oh the things God has in store for her life! To be spared in such a terrible situation.

Way too many new seasons of shows! Thank goodness for DVR!
