The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel: To know wisdom and instruction, to understand words of insight, to receive instruction in wise dealing, in righteousness, justice, and equity; to give prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the youth— Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance,

Again I got to run with Callie. She was dragging a little this morning so I only ran 4. I was still 20 minutes late for work. I've got to get her moving earlier for running together to work. :-) Ran the 1st and 4th miles with Callie.

My shoulder was really hurting, for no apparent reason, this morning.

Psalm 37:7-9 

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land.
