Because the best time to start a new year's resolution is not at the beginning of the year but half way through because you have the failure of the past to spur you on to ulitize the present to change the future.
At least that is what I am telling myself.I'm not a huge fan of the Olympics mainly because I believe the whole country-counting-medals exercise beautifies the effect that colonization, slavery, imperlism, forced immigration and capitalism has had on this planet.
I love the personal stories of people who have defied statistics and personal tragedies to reach this stage.
I was on Jaycee's blog yesterday and a thought occured to mii after reading her post on David. I need to do a series on Biblical Olympians. People in the Bible who ran their race and laid it all on the line. People who came from nothing and yet with God on their side inspire us to strive to succeed.
The London Olympics starts in 27 days and so starting tomorrow with Olympian Caleb I will tryand highlight a few of most worthy but least unsung Olympians.
My brain is clogged with all this computer science junk so please feel free to let me know which Bible Olympians I should cover. (Except David, Jaycee already covered that one beautifully)
I don't know about you, but somedays I'm so consumed with the rat race of this life that I am blissfully unaware of the many afflictions that are eclipsed by God's glory. David Crowder's words of being unaware of the spiritual warfare around us prompted me to create this Kafoduction.
