That you would take my place, that you would bear my cross.
Photographer Benoit Lapray’s photo series, “The Quest for Absolute" focuses on the loneliness of famous superheroes, set in the beautiful, yet desolate landscape of the French Alps.
Dennis Kimetto. New world record. 2:02:57!!!!! Berlin Marathon. September 28, 2014.
There is an excellent small article on him in the October/November 2014 Running Times. He was a struggling subsistence farmer in Kenya until he happened to run past the great Geoffrey Mutai on a training run a couple of years ago. Mutai tracked him down, asked him to train with hiis group, and the rest, as they say, is history.
He won his first race in 2011, the Dubai Half Marathon. He followed that up with three more victories, including a 25K world record, and finished runner-up to Mutai in 2:04:16 at his marathon debut in Berlin. He went on to win marathons in Tokyo and Chicago, prior to today’s stellar triumph. A great success story.
I am frightened at the prospect of how much I might love you; because I know the price it brings, and just thinking of you as begun the investment process within my heart. It would be easier to never invest at all, to hold all vulnerability close to my chest, not allowing anyone to enter my safe; but what a cruel thing it would be, to deny an opportunity to love a soul as beautiful as yours.
To have but one life to share, and to invest in you that noblest of treasures; the love that pushes you closer to that greatest Love, that love which would say unto Christ “I have invested what You have given, so that this treasure would not be mine, but Yours forever more.” and that is all that I ever hope to do, to give you unto Christ, just as He has given you unto me.
