Seattle Rock & Roll Half~Marathon

Bonjour ~~

Today was the perfect day for a run, a perfect day to run the Seattle Rock & Roll Half~Marathon.  The weather was cool and cloudy. I sometimes giggle inside because the weather forecast was for rain, and it was raining when I left this morning to drive into Seattle for the race.  I have a tendency to pray for just about everything so Yep, I prayed this morning and asked God to please let the weather be free of rain during the race.  Yep, in my heart, I feel God is so so good.  After parking my car, and exiting the parking garage, it had stopped raining, (it had been raining hard too).  The whole race there was no rain. Whether one says, it is just the weather, I like to believe in my heart that God answers prayers.  Thank you Jesus for a great race for all runners today here in the great Pacific Northwest.   Also, yesterday at the Expo, some ladies were selling these cute little shoe jewels that you place your shoestrings through.  I could not resist the little jeweled pink ones with the number "13.1" on it.    If you would like to know more about why I named my blog Pearl 13.1 read the section under my profile.   

Bisous, et que Notre Seigneur Jesus Christ te Benisse~

Kisses, and may the Lord Jesus Christ bless You~

2 Timothy 4: 7-8

7  I have fought the good fight,  I have finished the race,

I have kept the faith.

8  Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness,

which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day ~

and not only to me,

but also to all who have longed for his appearing.


  1. What an awesome post! The rain stopped just for YOU! I believe it. God honors the prayers of His people. Precious thought, huh?

    Thank you for visiting me and your sweet words. Prayers for my hands and the endless burning from carpel tunnel and tendonitis are sooo appreciated.

    Love, Rebecca
