The best way to end one thing is to start something else... this last week my highschool sports career officially ended. This may seem really frivolous, but this is the saddest thing that has ever happened to me. Sports means so much - it means spending time with my friends, developing life skills by working with my team, having long strategy discussions with my daddy. It may be the end, but my team ended it in the best way possible - the league championship. That would be SIX in a row to be exact. ( oh, and by the way, volleyball championships would be six, too!) Our team has had the best coaches! Thank you Amber(VB) and Dad(BB). Thank you teamates... Beth, Melissa, Annie, Vanessa -- it takes so much hard work for those victories! Those days are over, but with the promise of greater things to come.
So now, to begin something else... I'm training for a 1/2 marathon - " the toughest 1/2 marathon in the northwest". I will be joining 2332 participants as we climb over 2000 ft., followed by a 2000 ft. descent. Sounds like fun right! I am so excited for this. It means a new goal.It means change, but change is good because I have a God that walks beside me every step of the way!
Although I have this one plan for my near future, the rest is so unclear! The future looks so uncertain and I feel so helpless which direction to turn. I would so appreciate prayers for guidance, through these times of change!


~The Lord will fulfill his purpose

for me; your love, OLord, endures

forever.~

Grace,

This post brings laughter and tears!

I am so proud of you!

Way to go on the 1/2 marathon!! Can we come watch?

(I'm training for my own "big thing" right now----I've logged in 12 workouts in the last 3 weeks, a record for me lately. Impressive, huh?? smirk)
