I know, a 5K is only…what…3 miles, but I’m not a runner. However, I love cheering for friends, like Virginia, who are speedy on their feet. (Here with cheering cohort Jennifer at the Citrus Bowl and finish line for the Orlando corporate race. Campus Crusade had 120 or so runners!)

We used to be the ShaBring 10 (we nicknamed ourselves, combining the last names of Shaneyfelt and Bring; we're witty like that). Now we are 9. We celebrated the life of Gramp (Wayne Shaneyfelt) yesterday in Aurora, Nebraska. What a special time remembering a wonderfully kind man.

This is why I take my camera with me at (almost) all times. Saw this on a grocery store's vending machine. Only in Nebraska can you get a can of soda to fit any mood. Well _______.

It is absolutely spring here in Lincoln. Flowers are literally breaking open as I watch. And the smell? Let's just say it's more original than the Bounce fabric softeners claiming "spring breeze."

What an incredible day! Only 12 hours after losing Gramp, I had the privilege of spending time with precious college students on the other spectrum of life.
Two of them were Alpha Xi Deltas; Sara (left) and Renae (right). We dined at Chipotle for dinner, talking about what God is doing in the sorority now amidst bites of burrito and spicy salads.
We came back to the sorority house where they were hosting the Campus Crusade for Christ weekly meeting. I spoke on John 15 and "branch life." I was scheduled to speak about a month ago–and the timing couldn't have been more perfect. Seeing Gramp cross into eternity made me sense the brevity of life even more, causing me enjoy Jesus even more with the days I'm given. Tonight was a true blessing. I forgot how much I love college students!
