The Best!

No matter what your interest is strive to be the best! Maybe you are a snowboarder, a mom, or a dad. Are you striving hard to be as successful as you can? The young man in the picture was ranked #1 nationally last week in his division and age group as an amateur. This week he is ranked #3, needs some more 1st places! He must have his dad's genes. Yep, you figured it out he is my son. Do you think I am proud of his hard work and success? You bet - I am his father! I hope my Heavenly Father is pleased with how I am doing in my race to serve Him. I haven't finished the course yet, but I am getting closer to the finish line - piece of cake! Oh no !! I think there is another Table Top - Yiiiiiiii!! Well, they say pride goes before a fall, I WILL finish the course!

Thanks! You make our relationship with Jesus seem so simple and it is... if we don't complicate it. Thanks again for taking an event from your life and making it applicable to our lives!

Congratulations to your son! I've never done the snow ski stuff but I've always admired that ability! The ski part AND the dealing with the frozen, icy, cold, snow part...
(sorry, I'm a deep south gal =P)

No doubt "Dad" is proud of you... Your love for Him shows through! =D
