CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
As i mentioned this beatdown was dedicated to the Lady T’s. They really embodied the idea of perseverance. This was the first year this team played together and for the majority of the girls, like my daughter this was there first time playing lacrosse. Lacrosse games can get out of hand quick, especially if your knew to the game against good teams. However the Lady T’s continued all year to practice, show up, play hard and lose big. They embodied the definition of perseverance in the face of a HUGE obstacle. Last night their perseverance paid off changed, they won 13-3, in a game that showed the hard work paying off.

Having perseverance in the face of obstacles is key to our success as leaders. It takes perseverance to show up every day to post knowing the beatdown is going to be hard. But we know the payoff behind the obstacle is a better life.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Spring signs (blooming flowers,  greening trees, growing grass) are beautiful examples of a living creatures accepting a power (the Sun) that is outside themselves. They don’t work for it.
    In the same way, because of Christ’s death and rising to life again (what we celebrate this weekend at Easter!) God offers us power/salvation over SIN and DEATH, a darkness much worse than winter. All we must do is trust him for it and receive it through faith

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Love my time here in Alcoa F3.  It has been over 3 years of hot, snowy, frigid, downpours and few perfect temp days of hard workouts but I loved every minute of it.  Going to miss the amazing history lessons from Hammy, trying to keep up with Snorkel, Veep’s odd funnel stories, beer rucks, heart felt messages from Drifter, carrying bowling balls, turkeys, and swords around like it’s normal, dressing up as Mario with Snorkel as Luigi, Waxjob Hill, The Educator, Mt. Crumpet, Hellbender Bend,  and I am going to miss all the encouraging words by each and every member that passed my way.  See you all in the gloom some day soon.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
My favorite movie growing up was Sandlot. One of my favorite scenes from the movie was when the ghost of Babe Ruth was talking to Benny “the Jet” Rodriguez. Babe gives him some words of advice that I think we could all use in our lives.

“Let me tell you something kid, everybody gets one chance to do something great. Most people never take the chance, either ’cause they’re too scared, or because they don’t recognize it when it spits on their shoes. This is your big chance, and you shouldn’t let it go by…”

“Remember, kid, there’s heroes and there’s legends. Heroes get remembered, but legends never die. Follow your heart, kid, and you’ll never go wrong.”

Don’t be afraid to take a chance and go with your gut when you feel like you need to make a decision. As Christians, let the Holy Spirit work within you and lead you when necessary. Make the leap when you feel the push no matter how uncomfortable or painful it may be. Follow your heart.
