I am not running today. Time just won’t permit it. I had to attend to something else.

Today, Ninja Van delivered the Shoes I ordered @ Toby’s.

Thanks be to God!

Prophet Nehemiah has a lot to say about this when he prayed for Israel. (Bible reference is Nehemiah Chapter 9 starting from verses 6-31) There’s so much to learn about this prayer.
