What can I say? I love to run. I've run 4 full marathons and 6 halfs. But I love God more and I'm determined to run this race of life for Him to receive the ultimate prize of Heaven. I'd like to share my thoughts with you. You can agree or disagree. Comment or don't. You can read or not read. But it's here if you want it. Enjoy! .

Every Positive Has a Negative

What's this? Twice in February? Two posts? Call the news.....Albert's posting twice in the same month.....even in the same week!! This puts me on track for three posts in March. Watch out. No, I made a commitment, and I intend to keep it. I've also committed to something else.....running! I've run three times now and it's wonderful. I ran my third run last night. The weather was perfect.....cool and clear. The music was blarin'. It felt great......I could've run 10 miles I think. But I chose 2. I'm going to play it smart and very gradually get back into it. I'll do 2 all this week and even take a day or two off. Don't want to overdo the foot. But for now, it's feeling ok. I love these inserts.....they are called "Powerstep" FYI and I think they are working wonders. I love the support I can feel all day. I also love that I'm not having to do the elliptical this week which is freeing up my mornings to focus on God more. Needless to say, this week has gotten off to a great start. Now if I can just figure out the television thing.....

What now? So here's the deal. We got rid of cable this weekend. Huge step. Didn't think we'd ever do it, but it was time. It's too stinkin' expensive! Cable TV is robbery, hands down! Comcast should be ashamed of themselves. They are robbing poor people....like 6th grade teachers named Albert. So we cut them off. Actually my wife did. She made the call.....and no, I didn't make her. She volunteered to do it. The guy on the other end was upset. He asked why. He said if it's price, we can try to lower your bill. No thanks. Too late. We had made the decision. We weren't really watching that much of it anyways. We were paying close to $100 to watch a couple of shows on cable a week, if that. Not worth it for us. So we're going local only. Still haven't done that. Gotta get an antenna I guess. We also decided to give Netflix a try. We got on their site and did some reading....sounded like a great deal. $8 a month to watch so many great movies and TV shows streamed live to our computers, Ipad, and TV through the Wii. What a great deal!! They even had a free month trial. We signed up almost immediately.....on Saturday. Then we started planning what we were going to watch that night. Would it be old Brady Bunch episodes? Old game shows? A new release movie we had been wanting to watch? We started typing them in. The first one came up and said "not available for Live Streaming." Hmmmm, that's strange. Oh well, let's try another. Same message. After about 10 tries, we were starting to see the catch. Isn't there always a catch? So apparently with Netflix, there are a VERY limited number of shows available to stream live. You have to instead pay more and order DVD's in the mail. Arrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhh! Why can't it just be easy? Yes, it's still a lot cheaper and yes the DVD's are easy to send and receive, but the negative was discovered. There's always a negative. You know the old saying.....when something looks too good to be true......So now we aren't sure what we'll do. We ordered one DVD. It's still free during this first month. Not sure if we'll keep the streaming, keep the DVD, keep both??? I guess time will tell. But it got me thinking. Every positive does indeed seem to have a negative. I guess it's called balance. But think about it. Is there anything on this Earth that's always positive? Everything that brings you joy will at some point let you down whether it's your job, sports, your hobbies, even your family. I love my boys and that wife lady more than anything in this world, but they let me down sometime....and I know I do them as well. Another thing that brings me joy and happiness.....Food! I love food. I love to eat, but what's the negative? I can only eat a certain amount. I have to stop. I don't want to. But I know if I don't, I'll be unhealthy and my face will get rounder. Every positive has a negative. It's just a fact. Get used to it. I'm trying to. There will always be a negative coming along at some point. Well, not always.....I can think of one thing that will have no negatives.........

In Matthew 19, a man came to Jesus asking about Heaven. Jesus said, "If you want to be PERFECT, go and sell everything so you will have treasures in Heaven."

Psalm 16:11 talks of "eternal pleasure" in Heaven.

Matthew 5:48 says that we should be perfect just like God is perfect.

If God is perfect, Heaven must be as well. We are all on the road to Perfect. There will be no disappointments. There will be no sadness. There will be no grief. No mourning. No worries. No fears. NO NEGATIVES. Cable will be free in Heaven. There will be live streaming of everything. Free. No catches. No hidden fees. No stress or worrying about what to pay for and what not to pay for. It won't even matter because we'll be "live streaming" God, His Son, and praises to Him all day long.

I can't wait for the day when every positive has NO negatives. It's coming. Stay on that narrow path and meet me there.

I love God, Griffin, my Girl, and my Guys.

Keep runnin'. The PRIZE awaits. (Php. 3:14)
