Its amazing the effects a run can have. Although i like to enjoy those effects in moderation, the need to run off a few sizeable meals kicked in. Running along rediscovering U2′s How to Dismantle an Atomic bomb, wrestling through a few things with ‘the big man’ thrown in for good measure. I’ve been writing a few bible studies on the beatitudes for my day job, and those crazy words from Jesus (that sadly the church tends to ignore, myself included a lot of the time) are starting to seep into my consciousness again.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.

Would you deny for others what you demand for yourself
You speak of signs and wonders, but i need something other
I would believe if i was able, but i’m waiting on the crumbs from your table

Where you live should not decide whether you live or whether you die
Three to a bed
Sister Ann, she said
dignity passes by….
