Ephesians 6:17 The Helmet of Salvation

10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

Chuy's Hot to Trot 5k

Stallionaire Corley Hutton and myself decided to sign up for a 5k a couple weeks ago. Since the race was way down in South Austin aka North San Antonio, Corley and I had to represent the superior North side. After cramming the last couple of weeks trying to get in shape, race day finally came. I talked Cassie into coming out for the early Saturday AM race to snap some pics. As soon as we parked, we see Will and Tyler parking next to us at the same time. Will has lost 48 lbs recently from running, eating right, and limiting his beverage of choice. I hardly recognized this machine. Corley and I run about the same pace, and had about the same goal of breaking a 7 min/mile pace. We both ran a similar race and both of us met the challenge. Great race overall. Thanks to Cass for the professional pics.
