I made it! The day is gone and I made it!
I am really leaning on the scripture in Isaiah about the shepherd and his lamb. That is where I want to be...next to his heart.
I had my up and downs today but was able to handle it pretty well. When I went into the work room for lunch there was an article that someone had copied out of a sports magazine that I assume all coaches get. It is an Oklahoma sports magazine about coaches and the players. And there, at the top of the Copied article were the words:From members of his boys and girls golf teams, to students in his class to the teachers around him, Bethany's John Griffis was one of the most incredible people they say they ever met.
The second heading said this: A guy who hated tense situations. That is probably why he left a profession as an attorney in 1995, to mold young minds of the future. Griffis strived to make whoever was around him laugh whether it was with a "blonde joke: or a crazy outfit on costume day. To everyone who knew him,he lived his life the way we all should, never taking it too seriously and always having fun. Griffis tragically died Nov. 20 days after he fell from a ladder while working on his roof, but to everyone in Bethany High School, they'll always remember what he preached.
Then there are questions from the story writer to Mr Hawk, Kendall Ridings, Callee Cox, Mr Broughton,and Mr Brown. They answered the questions honestly and with great feelings.
I believe the name of the magazine is VYPE. I have never heard of it before. But it is an article worth looking at. It has pictures of John and some of the teachers, him dressed up as an old man standing next to Isaac, etc....It was a very good article and made me so proud of the man he was....and still is.
I was worried, as I mentioned this morning about fixing and eating. God answered. Janene Brown invited me and the kids over for dinner. It was wonderful and fun. We had a great time. I want to thank them for taking the time out of their schedule to meet our needs!
Well, better help Rach with her Study her Science. Just wanted to fill you in on my day.
By the way...Matthew was very discouraged at how he played today for qualifying. So bad he said that he didn't want to talk about it. And he has not. He was really down. Pray for him. That God will life him up and encourage him. That what ever his problem is, that he will be able to figure it our and improve his game.
Pray for a good night sleep. I am so tired.
I love you all...thanks for reading...for your comments, for your prayers,
