Merry Chistmas randomness from Liesl

Today would have been the perfect day for a run... It's cold, but sunny, and I think the snow has melted off the sidewalks enough that they wouldn't be slick. But, Santa stayed up until almost 3am wrapping presents last night, so, said Santa, took a nap this afternoon instead. I know what you're thinking, and yes, Santa is a procrastinator. Hopefully Santa will remember how early the kids got up next year! Ha! Apparently, Santa is also an optimist!

I got some really fun running themed presents this year! Which, I plan to tell you about, but not in this post. You'll just have to wait and see. But, I promise, if you come back soon there will be pictures too.

Today I came here for two things. #2: Rewards. I've been thinking of rewards for myself when I hit certain miles. Like, I'm toying with the idea of professional pedicures every 100 miles. Doesn't sound too shabby huh? And, if I'm going to be running a lot, certainly appropriate. I've also been thinking about other bigger rewards for bigger miles. So, when I hit 251.25 miles, I think I'm going to get my nose pierced! Just a one of those little tiny barely visible studs. ssshhhhh.... I haven't even told my husband yet. Surprise hunny!

#1: Merry Christmas! I hope that your day was wonderful! Full of unexpected blessings, and the love of the people that you spent it with. Happy Birthday Jesus!

Tears are falling, hearts are breaking
How we need to hear from God
You've been promised, we've been waiting

Welcome Holy Child
Welcome Holy Child

Hope that you don't mind our manger
How I wish we would have known
But long-awaited Holy Stranger
Make Yourself at home
Please make Yourself at home
Bring Your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
Word now breaking Heaven's silence

Welcome to our world
Welcome to our world

Fragile finger sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born
Unto us is born
So wrap our injured flesh around You
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy

Perfect Son of God
Perfect Son of God
Welcome to our world

Welcome to our World by Chris Rice
