Today was a busy, but FUN day. Started out the day with a morning lift. After lifting, my sisters and I decided to make crepes for lunch. We bought some nutella (pictured above) and put that with bananas inside the crepe. I have to say the crepes turned out GREAT!!
This morning/ afternoon my sisters and I worked on getting things ready to have the team over for dinner. On the menu for the night was salad (with tomatoes, carrots, cheese, cucumbers, and fresh lettuce), spaghetti (with fresh peppers, onions, shredded garlic, spices etc.), and garlic bread (homemade with shredded cheese, shredded garlic, and spices). It took awhile to get all of that together. We also made no bake peanut butter cookies and homemade brownies from scratch. I wasn't able to take a nap before practice but it was okay :).
I then went to practice. Practice was from 4:00-5:30 p.m., so not too bad. I rushed home to help my sisters get the last minute things together for the team meal we had tonight. We had the team over at 7:00 p.m. for dinner. Everyone enjoyed the meal :) I think it was a pretty big hit ha...the bread and salad was completely gone, and most of the spaghetti was too. Everyone left a little bit before nine. After cleaning up, my sisters were down for the count at 9:30. They both fell asleep in the living room for about 30 minutes, and then headed to bed.

I am still up. Classes started back up for me this week. Thankfully, the first week of classes are not too bad. The two classes I am taking this time around are Legal Aspects of Sport and Psychology of Coaching. I have some homework this week, so I have been getting things situated and doing some homework tonight.
Tomorrow we have film at 12:30 p.m., and then we have practice right after that.
I hope everyone is having a great week. It is hard to believe it is already March 1st...WOW!!!
As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.— Psalm 103:12 (NIV)
Thoughts on Today's Verse...Now that's a long way - from sun rising to sun setting, that's how far God has removed our sins. But the key word is removed. When we sin and come to God in repentance, God doesn't just forgive our sin; he purifies us of all unrighteousness. What was unholy in me is made righteous in him. What was impure is now clean. What was stained is spotless. Why? How? We can now see more fully what the Psalmist could know only in part. God doesn't see our sin, but rather he sees Jesus' sacrifice. His blood purifies and cleanses us! Our sin is gone and we are clean.
My Utmost For His Highest:
Our natural individuality, or our natural self, boldly speaks out and declares its feelings. But the true love within our inner spiritual self can be discovered only by experiencing the hurt of this question of Jesus Christ. Peter loved Jesus in the way any natural man loves a good person. Yet that is nothing but emotional love. It may reach deeply into our natural self, but it never penetrates to the spirit of a person. True love never simply declares itself. Jesus said, “Whoever confessesMe before men [that is, confesses his love by everything he does, not merely by his words], him the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God” (Luke 12:8).
Our Daily Bread:
As we walk with God, we can praise Him for His faithfulness—win or lose.
I can always count on God, my heavenly Father,
For He changes not; He always is the same.
Yesterday, today, forever, He is faithful,
And I know He loves me, praise His holy name! —Felten
In every change He faithful will remain. —Katharina von Schlegel
