Students are Risen!

WARNING: The following is an attempt at humor and should not be taken seriously so...y'all chill out.

"11In him you were also circumcised, in the putting off of the sinful nature,[a] not with a circumcision done by the hands of men but with the circumcision done by Christ, 12having been buried with him in baptism and raised with him through your faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead" (Col. 2:11-12).

I hate to break it to Paul, but there's something he left out in regards to things powerful enough to raise the dead. It has been my very recent experience that there is, in fact, something at least as powerful as the power of God to inspire dry bones to move.

The name of this phenomenal cosmic power? School Athletics. Seriously, now: I swear to you, I have never seen so many dead-on-their-feet kids climb all over themselves (and each other) to make sure their grades are passing so they can play. I'm lovin' life right now at school, y'all. Good times.

Tee hee.

My 9th grader's grades just came and they aren't so hot. I wish he was in sports right now. Sigh.
