This weekend was so nice to be able to relax and rest. Coach gave us 2 days off, which we had not had in awhile.
Thanks Mol and Mor for filling in for me and blogging...I must say you both did great!!
Today we went back to work! We had 2 practices today...both went well!! Coach informed us today, that they are signing a new American to come on our team. She will be meeting up with us this weekend down in Tarsus (where we will play on Saturday). I will inform you later of the details when it becomes official.
I hope you all have a great rest of the day! I was able to watch "Blindside" last night, and I must say it is a great movie...what a neat story!!
Tomorrow we have one practice in the afternoon. I will post more tomorrow. I feel like this afternoon and evening I have been catching up on emails, etc. It is amazing what all I had to catch up on not having the internet for 2 days.
Oh and congrats to The Saints for winning the Super Bowl! It was on over here at 1:00 a.m., and I did not want to stay up that late and watch it. I asked one of my roommates today who won, and was informed that the Colts lost.
If any if you are reading my blog and are in the Lynchburg area, I encourage you to go the the Vines center tonight and watch the Lady Flames take down, or should I say tame, Gardner Webb. The game is an important Big South game, as the winner if this game will determine who is #1 in Big South!! GO LADY FLAMES :)
Also I want to say Congratulations to Dustin and Kristen Rife who welcomed a baby boy, Dylan, into the world :) Kristen is the Women's Basketball Office Administrator.
Verses of the day:
Psalm 63:1 “O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you.”
Psalm 63:3 “…your love is better than life…”
Proverbs 8:13 “To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.”
Colossians 1:11-12 “Being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.”
I read "My Utmost For His Highest" every day, and really liked the entry for today, so I thought I would share it with you all!
“My Utmost For His Highest”
"And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly." 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
When we pray to be sanctified, are we prepared to face the standard of these verses? We take the term sanctification much too lightly. Are we prepared for what sanctification will cost? It will cost an intense narrowing of all our interests on earth, and an immense broadening of all our interests in God. Sanctification means intense concentration on God's point of view. It means every power of body, soul and spirit chained and kept for God's purpose only. Are we prepared for God to do in us all that He separated us for? And then after His work is done in us, are we prepared to separate ourselves to God even as Jesus did? "For their sakes I sanctify Myself." The reason some of us have not entered into the experience of sanctification is that we have not realized the meaning of sanctification from God's standpoint. Sanctification means being made one with Jesus so that the disposition that ruled Him will rule us. Are we prepared for what that will cost? It will cost everything that is not of God in us.
Are we prepared to be caught up into the swing of this prayer of the apostle Paul's? Are we prepared to say - "Lord, make me as holy as You can make a sinner saved by grace"? Jesus has prayed that we might be one with Him as He is one with the Father. The one and only characteristic of the Holy Ghost in a man is a strong family likeness to Jesus Christ, and freedom from everything that is unlike Him. Are we prepared to set ourselves apart for the Holy Spirit's ministrations in us? Oswald Chambers
