They really are giving kids too much homework these days.
I feel this today and every day since last Friday. Anticipation, longing, desperation for the day that God will come back and take us from this pain. The challenge I'm fighting is to not give in to living by fear. What I'm reminded of by this terrible shooting is that my fear is an indication of misplaced trust and a false feeling that I have any real control over anything. I trust my children's school, just as those at Newtown did. I trust my church just as those in the temple shooting in Wisconsin did. I trust when I go to the mall that we will be safe, just as those in the mall in Oregon did. What a wake-up call that I'm trusting in the wrong things."AGAINST ITS WILL EVERYTHING ON EARTH WAS SUBJECTED TO GOD'S CURSE. ALL CREATION ANTICIPATES THE DAY WHEN IT WILL JOIN GOD'S CHILDREN IN GLORIOUS FREEDOM FROM DEATH AND DECAY." Romans 8:20-21
|Here she is rocking her first uniform. It's huge. We told her that's how all the kids are wearing it.|
|#4 has my heart.|
|Here she is in her first huddle. I have a feeling she's just wondering what the snack will be after the game.|
She's the littlest one. I just had a flashback to my childhood.
Oh, if only I could protect you from classmates daring each other to pick you up. Sorry baby girl.
|Here she is running right.|
|Oh, and now she's running left. And as you can tell, my camera is a super quality one.|
|Here she is guarding. I think she's thinking that she could take that girl if it comes to it.|
|"Dare ya to try and get past me." That, or, "Let's hug it out for sparkly headband passions."|
Pretty sure its one of those.
|This is her dribbling. She's pretty good at that. It's good to focus on the positives.|
|Her real strength on the team is cheering. That girl can cheer for her teammates like nobody's business.|
|And twirling. I'm learning that sometimes the urge to twirl on the court is so great that one cannot hold back.|
