I had a relaxing morning just chilling :) Went over to Andja's and ate lunch there. Then I relaxed for another hour or so until we left for practice. We had practice today at 3:30 p.m. Practice went well! Definitely still feel my foot, but it is a process. I may or may not play on Saturday. For sure, Lord willing, I will play next weekend though is the plan :)!
Tonight was a chill night. It is amazing how fast the evening goes. I talked to a friend for an hour or so on skype, then I made some chicken salad, and I made some homemade banana bread.
We leave at 4:15 a.m. to head to the airport. We have a 6:00 a.m. flight. We will probably spend most of the day chilling at the hotel and then practice in the evening. Then on Saturday we play at 2:00 p.m. against Besiktas which is 8:00 a.m. EST (only a 6 hour time difference until Sunday again).
Here is a link you can watch the game if you want to. It will be the Samsun vs. Besiktas game.
For those of us who are not staying in Istanbul, we will be catching a flight back to Samsun Saturday night. When we get back Andja and I are going to pick up our team captain's car (she is letting us use it for the weekend which is nice). So, I will get to drive a stick shift for a few days again :). Coach is giving us Sunday and Monday off...it will be nice to relax and chill :)
I hope everyone has a great evening!
DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED by the difficulty of keeping your focus on Me. I know that your heart’s desire is to be aware of My Presence continually. This is a lofty goal; you aim toward it but never fully achieve it in this life. Don’t let feelings of failure weigh you down. Instead, try to see yourself as I see you. First of all, I am delighted by your deep desire to walk closely with me through your life. I am pleased each time you initiate communication with Me. In addition, I notice the progress you have made since you first resolved to live in My Presence.
When you realize that your mind has wandered away from Me, don’t be alarmed or surprised. You live in a world that has been rigged to distract you. Each time you plow your way through the massive distractions to communicate with Me, you achieve a victory. Rejoice in these tiny triumphs, and they will increasingly light up your days.
What I am THANKFUL for? Day #1
There are so many things I am thankful for. First and foremost though, I want to start off Day #1 by thanking my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My relationship with Him means the world to me, and I am so thankful that He allows all of us the opportunity to come to Him. Without Him, I would not be where I am today. Without Jesus in my life, my life would be meaningless...like chasing after the wind. BUT with the Lord in my life, He gives me a purpose and He gives me the ability to experience TRUE joy, peace, love, kindness, gentleness, patience, and the list could go on and on. I love you Lord! <3
