New Project!

So I have been very, I mean VERY reluctant to do this project. The topic makes me squirm when I think about having to talk about myself and the topic. Well, let me give you a little background before I go off ranting. I have made a new friend this year and I love reading her blog! She started doing this project a little over a week ago and I have been awestruck with her writing and how she has approached this topic. I asked for her permission to "copy" her and of course, because she is so sweet, she said yes. I asked her, though I was secretly hoping she would say no so I wouldn't have to do it. The project is called "Project 31" and it is for celebrating our God given beauty and the God given beauty of others around us. It is all based off of the Proverbs 31 Woman, which is a passage that is so very close to my heart. Often when I feel like I am lost in this world I turn to that passage to see the woman God created all of us women to be. So after much consideration and prayer I have decided to take this thing and run with it. I am excited to see what God will teach me about the beauty He has designed and not the beauty the world has for us. This is in no means replacing my lessons learned while running, but merely adding to it, which means you still get the pleasure of hearing all about sweat, snot, muscle cramps, the highs and the lows of running and of course my personal favorite running wedgies. Without further adu here is the list! OH PS....is you are reading this and I read your blog please take part!! :)
