Children of the Corn

Greetings from Omaha. I have to say, I kind of like Omaha. If you took out the Nebraska fas, this place might actually be an OK place to live. But, you could never take out the nU fans, so I think I'll pass. I am spending my second day here, and so far it's been lovely. I've eaten at Spaghetti Works, met a marathoner who gave me some tips, and spoken to 4 students who might come to Mizzou. I can't complain a lick.

When I am a resident of a hotel, I like to spend a good portion of my day streaming shows from my computer. I got to watch In the Motherhood and Samantha Who. Nothing like free comedy on demand to make me comfortable in a new city.

When I ran out of TV last night, I hit my Bible up. I have to say, I have read Ruth a dozen or so times but never has it touched my heart like it did last night. Ruth was truly a woman of God. She listened to God, sacrificed for the good of her family, and remained faithful during an incredible tragedy. It almost brought me to tears last night. I hope when I am faced with such challenges, I will have the foundation of faith to stand firm. What a mighty God we serve, that he would give his servants portraits of strong women for us to follow.

I have one more visit today and then I am headed to the hotel to get a run in. I will try to be more inspired in the future. Sorry for the recent delay in blogging.

Here's to God's faithfulness.
