This is a new one for me – writing on the eve of our newest season. You see, when the ball hits the court tomorrow morning at 6:30 am, our basketball season officially starts. We haven’t been completely without basketball thus far…there have been league games, open gyms and a lot of film time. But at 6:30 am, all that changes and we are thrust full-throttle into the season.
I am excited and anxious all wrapped up into one. Any coach's wife can understand that mix of emotion. One thing that is the same, is that I've prepared for our season just as I used to prepare for football season. In prayer.
It’s my prayer that the coaches are prepared and have the wisdom to lead these young ladies in their season. I pray for the players and their families – that they may be healthy and prepared for the endurance of the season. I pray that our team becomes a model for other athletic programs and for His work to be exalted throughout the season.
As Coach and the team takes the home court in the morning, my heart will be with them.
