So what does it take to GET THERE? First I have to know where I am going . . . that is to Oregon State 3A Basketball Tournament in Coos Bay, Oregon! Coos Bay???? GPS is set - ready for a 4 to 5 hour drive - probably in the rain - most likely with a very packed car - in a caravan of large SUV's along with a school bus, and staying for 4 nights in a hotel with twelve 16-18 year old young men under our watch! Yup , . . that's where I'm going - all a part of the journey to our dream - ANOTHER STATE CHAMPIONSHIP FOR THE HAWKS! It began many years ago when God brought this year's players into the world and now we are in the final segment of the trip to State. Soon we will be on the basketball court of Marshfield High School competing against worthy opponents for the sought-after crown. One over-riding and comforting thing about the process is that God is not only with us but He goes before us! By my next blog I will have sat BEHIND THE BENCH for these destiny-determining games ... State Crown or not. Thankfully my eternal destiny for life is set - I know where I am going - heaven. And I know how to get there - Christ's blood shed for me, See you after State Tournament!
IN THE GETTING THERE ...
