This morning I walked in the annual 5K Run/Walk Kima Mbangu (Run Fast). This was my third year participating alongside of fellow MAF wives Sandy Franci and Valerie Hochstetler. We also had a pilot running, and four MK's volunteering, so MAF was very well represented.
This was a fundraiser to benefit women in Congo, one of the most challenging and statistically unsafe places in the world to be a female. My daughter, Emily, went with me and was a volunteer helper.
At the halfway mark she brought me water and cheered me on for a bit.
Not long after we began the walk, I got a toe cramp. There are verses in Scripture that talk about God's people being different parts of the same body, and if you never thought being just a little toe was very noteworthy, you have never tried to walk or jog with a toe cramp. At that time, my little toe was getting ALL of the attention. A real runner would push through and ignore the pain. I am not a real runner. I started drinking water too late and by the time I reached the end I had a headache that made me forget all about my toe. But, I did get to the end!
Another finish for me this week was the quilt top I have been working on for Daniel.
I had help reaching this finish also. Elliot. As you can see he is doing better and has gained back most of the weight he lost when he was ill. Why do cats
I wanted you to see the "texture" that the print on the black fabric lends to the quilt.
Sorry about the poor photo. I'm a quilter, not a photographer. And my kids are just kids, not quilt racks. This will go into storage, along with my freshly cleaned sewing machine, until we return from furlough.
