Well, Mother Nature
hit Texas and Oklahoma this week with a bang
including ice, sleet and freezing rain. Most of
the schools have been out this week due to the
conditions. We are finally thawing out a little. I
suppose this was God's way of expressing His
feelings about the TAKS tests!
Here are some thoughts for the day from Jim Rohn's
Sowing and Reaping
"You must get good at one of two things: sowing in
the spring or begging in the fall."
"God has the tough end of the deal. What if
instead of planting the seed you had to make the
tree? That would keep you up late at night, trying
to figure that one out."
"Plant, don't chant."
One of my good friends always says, "Things don't
just happen; things happen just."
We have over the halfway point with being 6 weeks
into contest season with 4 more weeks to go
at the end of March. We continue to see some
amazing teams and new teams starting all the time.
How wonderful it is to see such talent from week
to week, at different venues across the country.

Below are a few passages on contentment. I needed
some relief to my stress this week so this one hit
a cord with me as I hope it will with you. Have a
wonderful week, and, as always, please keep in
