tonight... this is the song in my soul.
Sunday, December 14
When looked upon, so much am I,
into the deep of starry sky,
beyond the pull of ancient past,
and stuck on foot, I linger last,
a universe contained in we,
as vast as all or'head I see,
the cold, the void, outside my reach,
the warmth, the blood, inside of each,
I feel the draw of Providence,
my echo she, in love's brilliance.

I love playing basketball! I lived for it as a kid. I have SO many memories of Saturday morning pickup games with Vaughn, Doug, Andy, Jason, Lance, Todd, and many others who would meet at the church building and play from about 7am till 11am. We would run nonstop and play and play and play and it was awesome and we were great friends. Afterwards we would hit the local gas station and grab a chocolate milk or soda and powdered raspberry filled donuts or some other snack or two or three. So I always wanted to share this with my boys someday but they are not super into basketball so the opportunity to do this has been limited (I actually blame myself for this). But on this day I got to live a dream and play for about 2-3 hours with my sons and show them what their old man can still do (which is MUCH less than I used to be able to do :( but it was still very fun!)
