The Italian Dolomites

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.
Rom 5:1-2

I'm sitting way up in the Italian Dolomites drinking espresso in the sun. The village Misurina is beautiful and not far from the South Tyrol border... I managed to order coffee and exchange some polite phrases in my poor Italian with the old lady that runs the hotel here. I actually studied Italian for two whole years. Proud of myself :).

I'm gaining strength all by myself in the Austrian Alps a few days. This is actually the place where I have my earliest roots... I was born in the little town Villach in Kärnten just a few miles from the Italian border, but lived a few years as a little child in Lienz, Eastern Tyrol just by the Dolomites... There was an earthquake in 1975 and we slept in the car, the entire family.
I stayed in Neustift outside of Brixen, Southern Tyrol tonight, and now went up to the Alps for a little while...

Seeking God, reading the book of Romans. Gaining strength and power. Want to go on running my race and finish strong...

See ya!
