Woodlawn: Shining the Light of Revival

In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:4–5 With the flick of a switch, the packed auditorium went dark. It’s not every day you get to dress up to attend a red carpet movie premiere in…

For the Love of the Game

Today is April 1st, and you know what that means? (Other than the socially acceptable day for making a fool of others.) It means only four days til baseball season is officially in full swing! (Pun intended, obviously.) I have never been more excited coming into a new season of America's favorite pastime than I am…

Redemption & Glory

“Everybody makes mistakes. But…you can find redemption. Yes, even glory.” This closing statement from a USA Today article in the sports section caught my attention. Two baseball players who had been caught taking performance-enhancing drugs are now “all clean” and have each played a major role in getting their respective teams to the post season.…

The Colorful Truth

My week has been full of bouncing balls. There's been some serious basketball-watching taking place between the five teams we have represented at Nationals. My friend asked me how the "competition" was going. I am not rude so I did not laugh at her ignorance. I simply laughed. (And laughed, and...) I suppose there's truth…

The Home Stretch

My pastor made an excellent illustration out of Saturday night's "obstruction call" from Game 3 of the World Series. That play at the plate was gospel! I knew there was a good reason I liked baseball. And my pastor, too, for that matter. Base runner Allen Craig was on third with a good chance to…

On the Court

Basketball season is officially over for this household. (Sad day.) The players get back tomorrow from Nationals, and since I wasn't with them this week to take pictures, I'm posting some from Micah's (#23) State Championship game a few weeks ago. They took second in State, and sadly didn't play so well in Regionals or…

Basketball Time

Actually, basketball season is over, which is why it is high time I post pictures from Nationals (and postpone my trip pictures). Jared is #11 in navy jersey. He made the All-Region team, and they are out on the court getting ready to warm up. Just before a Flames senior varsity game. That's Micah shooting,…

One of These Days

One of these days I'll be on top of things and won't have to say "oh here's what we did last month and some pictures of it", but instead "this is what happened this week/yesterday". I really don't see that happening, but it's nice thinking about it. So, here's what we did last month and…

Flames Article

I thought I published this yesterday. The Flames team was featured in an Arkansas online news site for their win against Hot Springs. Jared & Micah were mentioned, and there are some pictures included, check it out!
