Updated on Boston Marathon

*Note: I posted this a few minutes before the terrible bombings at the finish line there in Boston. Lisa crossed half an hour before the explosions hit. We are all praying here for the victims and their families. We also pray that those who caused this unspeakable carnage will be caught.*

My sister Lisa just crossed the finish line at the Boston Marathon a short time ago with a net time of  3:27:37.  I’m so proud of her!

    I was in utter shock this morning as I turned on the radio and heard the awful news about the bombing in Boston! It was only yesterday that I received your blog about the achievement of your sister in the Marathon, so this morning when I heard it on British radio I was totally shocked and my heart immediately went out to your sister!

    This is precisely why we must LIVE every moment for Christ as though it were our LAST! We never know what is around the corner, half an hour earlier and Lisa would have been caught… Praise God!!!

    I want this scripture to be etched into my soul:

    ” I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8

    Thanks for the good words. Lisa called this morning and said they were 2 blocks away when the bombs went off. Absolutely devastating to read the stories of the little 8-year-old waiting to hug his daddy, a hug that never happened. His sister and mother are critical. Please pray for them and all the many injured with amputations and other horrific injuries. We don’t know when our last moments are. It’s a good reason to walk in the Light of the Lord Jesus Christ and love those around us while there is still time. Lisa received 150 text messages from friends, co-workers and clients at the Y where she is wellness coordinator. She is loved, because everywhere she goes, she loves others. She’s a great role model for me, even though she’s my younger sis!
