These goggles are a) ugly as sin, and make me look like a hit; and b) totally awesome at not fogging up. So it's a win. I was pulled out of the pool by a needing-to-per-RIGHTNOW toddlers 2 laps shy of a mile and a half. What can you do? #gymdayswimday #iswimforKANNON
THIS guy! I'm in love. 😍😍😍 #irunforKANNON

So long, #VerizonWireless. Hello #tMobile.
Gorgeous day for a gorgeous run! I was feeling like crap, so even though the run was slow, it felt good, flushed my system, and left me feeling clear for the first time today. Sad story: a poor girl was walking her dog (probably a boxer/put bull mix), and tripped and gashed her head. 😟 Stopped and waited for emergency aid to come and rescue her. Sweet thing was completely freaked out, but that puppy was 100% protective and comforting, and it was just sweet to see. Anyway, as always, #irunforKANNON!! Happy Friday, and Happy Fall, y'all!
Happy Friday from me and dude. ❤️
Gym Day! The pool was closed for a refill, so I was resigned to an hour (17mi) on the stationary bike, plus about 30min of strength with 5lb weights. The upshot is I was able to relax into Scorpion Handstand and hold it for 10-15 seconds three times. Whoop whoop! #practicemakesprogress #igymforKANNON #irunforKANNON

*Unless

unless1Today, I read some people talking about how absolutely certain they are that Jesus would never ever hire a homosexual, and how appalling is the very thought.

And I got confused.

Because The Story of God as read in the Bible involved the “employment” of habitual adulterers (Abraham, David, Israel, etc), prostitutes (Rahab, Mary Magdalene, Israel), murderers (Moses, David again, S/Paul, Israel), greedy thieving tax collectors (Matthew, Israel), violence-prone ear-cutting-off-deniers (Peter, Israel), hot-headed zealots (James and John, Israel), idolators (Israel, Israel, Israel)…

You know, all these blatant sinners who, despite meeting God over and over, kept right on sinning and also kept right on being covered by His blood, which necessarily either covers all or none.

So… I’m just thinking that among such company in God’s “employ,” a monogamous gay person might be the least of His concerns.

It’s not about sinners, anyway, or about sin. After all, The first Adam lumped us all together as “hopeless, Unless…”

It’s about Jesus, the Other Adam… the Unless.
