MOLESKINE:  Better Late Thank Never.  It is a phrase that some love, some hate, and some believe that if you aren’t 5 minutes early, you are late.  I thank God for those folks because they help me with my genetic late gene.  (Thank you Squirrel, Beano, and Bow Tie – you all help me with this!)

So, as this backblast is hopefully falling into the “better late than never” category, I been thinking about this.  The other two F’s of F3, require just as much work fitness does.  Being in fellowship with someone who needs it (um, that is all of us in case you are wondering) means “being in relationship with” and that just doesn’t appear.  Me running the Colonial is going to take me being in proximity of running and people who run.  Frequently.  There is someone in my life that I need to work on for better fellowship to lead to a better relationship.  In fact, it will be longer and harder than prepping for the Colonial.  That is going to take proximity, determination, grace, and love.   

And faith too takes proximity.  Am I putting the time in with God?  Admittedly, not enough.  Dag, I think the same formula from the last paragraph applies.

Probably all of us have something with one of the F’s that might be stepping towards the Never end of the spectrum.  So, I would encourage you to stop turn around and just take one step towards the other direction with that fitness program, fellowship that is needed in yours or someone you care about life, or your faith.  Don’t let any of the F’s fall into the category of “Never.”  If you are late to one of them, its ok, just don’t never them!

Love you peeps!
