Saturday morning was never the same as I started walking at the Jumeirah open beach. Its good they provided a jogging path and a separate cycling path across the beach. People are taking advantage of the nice weather – not so cold and a now a bit warm. I myself took the chance to move my butt and walk the 1.5 kilometer stretch twice. Its such a nice experience brisk walking while listening to your favorite praise and worship songs and praying as well, not to mention the enjoyment seeing the sight of nature and even its fresh sea breeze caressing one’s face.
I just pray that I can sustain and maintain my new found activity. So help me God.
Yesterday was a surprise.
We woke up and saw that 3 of the major arteries in our area were closed – 2nd December Street, Al Wasl Road and Jumeirah Road. They closed theme for the Dubai Marathon that started early in the freezing morning.
Yesterday was a challenge.
Since roads were closed, and since it was a Friday-church day, it was a challenge for us churchgoers to get to the venue of worship that was a few kilometers across our side of the road.
Yesterday was victorious.
So the roads were closed leading to the worship venue for yesterday’s worship service. But hey, nothing can stop us from going to the service and worship the Living God, and so we got into our vehicles and parked them at nearest to the worship venue. So we got to the venue, worshiped, heard the Word of God and we also got to flex our legs a bit – much needed.
Thanks to the Dubai Marathon.
Thanks be to God Almighty.
Victory to You Lord Jesus.
