It was a long, cold weekend out on the soccer field. But this is why I love my kids playing sports - sometimes they lose and there is a lesson in losing. But sometimes they win - and take 1st place! And it does feel really good :)
This is a Plus Team which is kind of like Ayso's Club team. We have been training since July! It has been a huge commitment for us (Friday night practices stink!!) But when you see how well they play together now - it makes it all worth while! Congrats Fusion!!!
My life is sobusy and seems so out of control sometimes. I've been trying to say NO, slow down, and enjoy this season. I want to remember and live CHRIST this year! Someone once sent me this email and I love what it says - I printed it out and hung it on my desk, but haven't read it in months, then today as I was scurrying by, I stopped and read it -
Rules (solid advice) from God Wake Up!... Decide to have a good day. "Today is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalms 118:24
Dress Up!... The best way to dress up is to put on a smile . A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks. "The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at outward appearance; but the Lord looks at the heart ." I Samuel 16:7
Hush Up!... Say nice things and learn to listen. God gave us two ears and one mouth, so He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking. "He who guards his lips guards his soul." Proverbs 13:3
Stand Up!....for what you believe in. Stand for something or you will fall for anything..."Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good..." Galatians 6:9-10
Look Up!... to the Lord. "I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me ." Philippians 4:13
Reach Up! .. for something higher. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path." Proverbs 3:56
Lift Up! ... your prayers. "Do not worry about anything; instead PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING." Philippians 4:6
It's good to stop and reflect on your priorities sometimes.............
I was blessed to have some friends from church over to my house for an Asian feast! It was so yummy and fun! We used chop sticks (some of us used forks and some of us used beginner chop sticks). This is our dinner for 8 (or in my case 7), and it has been fun to get to have some small group discussion and Wii time!
