So, the first think we’re really going to talk about, next Sunday, is hell.
I’ve been reading quite a bit. Whew.
I’m amazed at what is out there. Someone gave me this book, which in my brief flip through is quite disturbing to me.
I chose this first because someone from NFC actually asked me a month or so ago why I never talk about hell. My answer didn’t satisfy myself, so I’m trying to rectify that. We’ll see.
Anyway, I’ve been thinking so much about hell that I wonder if this idea I had really CAME from pit of hell. See, I turn 40 in a few months, and I’ve been wondering for awhile what I should do to celebrate it, or actually, what Elaine and I together should do for our birthdays. But then, last night, a thought came…perhaps from hell, I leave it to you to decide.
I had it while out for a run last night. Which was close to experiencing hell, I might add. I thought, “Hey…maybe a good thing to work toward would be to run 40 laps on your fortieth birthday.” For those of you doing the math at home, that’s ten miles. A breeze for some, but I’ve never run that far at once in my life. I think by blogging it, I might actually have to work toward it.
