I almost didn't run this morning. It is so windy. And part of my run is uphill. And, the wind just so happens to be blowing, downhill. It is hard enough running uphill without a strong, cold, wind blowing in my face.

I could run the opposite direction, but then as I ran downhill, the wind would be pushing me from behind. Kind of like have to much help. Then I would end up feeling like I didn't get the full effect of my morning jog.

As I may have mentioned in the past, I like to meditate while jogging. So while I was running uphill into the wind, I thought about a time or two that I called God on the carpet. I was having a difficult time in my life, and it seemed like God wasn't helping. So I asked Him; You know I'm having a hard time, do You have to make things more difficult?

I'm glad I ran this morning. A train came through, blowing it's horn, long and loud. And the wind seemed to carry the sound of the train's horn on the backs of the flying leaves.
