A win?!?

Jonathan's team finally won a game (4-2)!!! Jonathan plays defense or sweeper pretty much the whole game and does an excellent job of it. He is quite fast for his age and is constantly pressuring those forwards to make bad shots or stealing it from them and taking it up the outside. I am really impressed.

Dad, Mom, and Christina went to the Awana conference today. I believe dad talked at three sessions. Christina's orthodontist was there and went totally out of his way and ran the slide projector for each of dad's presentations. What a blessing he has been to us!

While they were off at the conference, Jonathan and I went to Cal baptist and played ultimate frisbee. :) Let's just say that not keeping score was a good thing today, but it was a lot of fun! Afterwards, we went and ate lunch in the cafeteria.

I was reading Galatians 4 today and was hit between the eyes by a few verses.

7 Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.
8 However at that time, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those which by nature are no gods.
9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless elemental things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again?

This describes our position in Christ. Reflecting on my walk with Christ, I see many times that I have turned back to those weak and worthless things--not living in the reality of my position in Christ as an heir! If Christ died for us to be sons and heirs of God, we should definitely live like children of God. Let us live up to our position in Christ!
