Moving into the weekend! It is amazing how quickly time flies! Today I have a half day at work, leaving at 12:30 for Nick's meet. This is it. This the end of an awesome but sometime difficult season. Last year Jerry Nick's team mate struggled with his hip and other issues. This year he is a senior and unstoppable. Pray for him today so that he will be a top qualifier for the State Competition in Cross Country. Pray that Nick and his entire team do well and stay healthy for this last run of the season. Keep Nick in your prayers. This was a tough year for him and he learned a lot. He once had an arch enemy Des who is now just another buddy running the race. Pray for Des. He is awesome too but stuck on a team of lack lustre runners who are not into it. He is a bright young man and I wish him well. It took a lot of courage and help from my backfield, The Lord and His top people to change my heart. I wanted my son to be a winner. He is. No matter what comes his way he will always be a winner to me. I want him to succeed but no at the price of hurting someone else. Cross Country is a different sport than football or the other top rated scholarship earning sports. You become part of an extended phamily. It is a good clean sport and I pray all the runners today succeed whatever their plans may be.
As always I thank each and everyone of you for stopping by. Eventually I get around to visit but some weeks are difficult.
Last night we saw the house two blocks from here. The owners were super nice and we liked the house. Problem is so does everyone else because of this market we are sliding downward in. Pray, that is all we can do about it.
I will see you later and wish you a beautiful day full joy and Christ's blessings. Thanks
This is an update regarding the regional trials for Cross Country. THS  Cross Country team is going to state. Those boys ran their best race and they took second place as a team! Next weekend we will be at the State Competition. Prayer is always welcome. Thanks for all your thoughtful comments. I will get pictures posted this weekend! I still have to organize my photos from Durango!

Thank you for visiting my blog earlier this week and for your lovely comments. It's so nice to "meet" you.

Obviously, you are house hunting. Hope it works out...though as Christians, we know that God's will is always accomplished. However, when God's will happens to be what we are wanting, it's doubly sweet, isn't it?

Blessings to your son and his running buddies.

Have a lovely day,
