Regional Champions

Image
Kendall's team won the regional championship for the second year in a row. We beat Riverview from Searcy, AR., 65-44. They were ranked very high in the state--not sure of the exact number but in the top five I think.

And then he catches a glimpse of his biggest fan! Me. There are a few people who would argue the validity of that statement but what do they know??





Kendall with his family, Kailey, Jeff and Kim. His dad, Jeff, is our son and in his first year as head coach of Kendall's team. Congratulations, Jeff, on a great year so far.



Boompa, my husband, and Jeff.




Kendall and Boompa.










It is my prayer that Jeff, Kendall and the rest of the team give God all the glory for allowing them to use their talents to glorify Him. To you, Oh God, be all the praise and glory.

Weekend Worship at Scott, Arkansas

This is a little community church in Scott, Arkansas. The building was designed by a prominent Little Rock architect more than 100 years ago and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. You can read about their mission, beliefs and history here.



Ps 119:33-40

Teach me, O LORD, to follow your decrees;
then I will keep them to the end.



Give me understanding, and I will keep your law
and obey it with all my heart.



Direct me in the path of your commands,
for there I find delight.



Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.



Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
preserve my life according to your word.



Fulfill your promise to your servant,
so that you may be feared.
Take away the disgrace I dread,
for your laws are good.
How I long for your precepts!
Preserve my life in your righteousness.

Ihave never shared this prayer journal with anyone--not even my husband. To me, prayer journals are private, especially a prayer journal written during a fast.

However, I have learned (through Bill Bright's writings) that being too private about sharing can also be a form of pride. So, it is with much fear and trembling and gratefulness to God for his mercy that I share this journal.

(The bold print in above paragraph will link you to the best writings on prayer and fasting that I have ever read.)

The journal is long. I wrote it over a period of about 42 days. I share it hopefully as an encouragement to you in your Christian walk. I realize there are many people who fast forty days at least once a year. I have only fasted forty days one time in my life and a couple of three-day fasts.

So read a little or a lot--all at one time or come back and pick up where you left off when you have a chance--it was a journey I will never regret or forget.
Don't know that I will try a fast any ti…
