First Place!

It was a rough start...

A little advice seemed to get him back on the game.
Big Mike D, aka Mikey, who got his first trophy 2 weeks ago...has now added to the collection- but this was a big one- This was The Club Championship- This was First Place!
First place....out of how many you ask, well, I was kind of hoping to avoid this part....

There he sat at awards ceremony-He cheered the other winners he anxiously waited to see if my words would come true....
Me-"Mikey, you were awesome."


Me-"I am pretty sure you going to get FIRST PLACE."

M- "WHAT! Are you SERIOUS!??? For real????"


M- "YES!" (Yeth!)
Then the official announcement came- "FIRST PLACE in The Championship flight of the 4 hole division..."Big Mike! The crowd went nuts!! Everyone watched the shock on his face- as he ran to the trophy.

You would have thought this kid just whipped up on Tiger himself!

This reminded me of how God watches us- not comparing us to other's and their accomplishments...but He watches each one of us- as individuals- as we are all in our own flights- and He is right there with us...cheering us on!

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and perfector of our faith" Hebrews 12:1,2a

Have a great weekend!

Grace and Peace,
