from Waco to OKC

WACO...His goal was to run a sub-five minute mile. He missed it by the blink of his eye. Britt placed 6th in the state at the TAPPS State Championships in Waco on Saturday, May 5th running the 1600m in 5:00.84. He told us we should have screamed at him to run a fraction faster...now do you think his coach dad was screaming at him GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...he was. Great finish for this freshman to qualify and make it to the State Championships in four different sports this year: cross country, swimming, basketball, and track.

OKC...Can you find your brother in the photo??? We jumped in the car after the state track champs to make an AAU Basketball Tournament in Oklahoma City where Britt played three games. Here is his Team Texas Swoosh playing for the championship against an Oklahoma team. Lost by four points. Is this all about winning? I actually really enjoyed every minute of the games and track meet but I don't like to lose. Why? What do you REALLY think when you walk away runner-up? How we process these things REALLY does matter.

Our passions reveal our thirst for Life or life. “Most of us escape so much by being less than fully alive” Frederick Buechner wrote. Buechner said that most of the time we are little more than half alive; the rest of the time we are dazed, dreaming, or detached. The dead sparrow, the woman touching the hem of his garment as he passes by, the disciples shooing away the children, Zaccheus in a tree to see him come through town----God seems to escape nothing. He seems to be vulnerable to the pain of the crippled and bereaved and pain of being human. I love reading Buechner in terms of processing the thoughts of my heart.


Praying for Our Friend Joanne Psalm 131:3 Waiting on God. Hope Now. Hope Always.

I've met some amazing women through blogging. I would love to hear from you. My personal e-mail is:
I have another blog where I blog daily as a small group of us read through the New Testament this year. It's called A String of Pearls. We carry each other on mats (when we just can't walk anymore) to Jesus and sweet things like that.
