He donned a bright yellow raincoat as clouds filled the sky, so that he would keep dry and warm as well.

The dog was near mile marker two, and held two Boston Strong flags in his mouth to cheer on the athletes.

He surely made the participants day and also all that were present there.

Verse of the Day

Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. — Philippians 2:14-16 (NIV)
