What has been hard is knowing that he has played since he was in second grade and he's a good player. Maybe he's not a starter, but he is good and he should be playing at least a quarter a game. Last year he was one of the captains of the JV team and he started every game and played most of the game every game. He often times got at least 10 points and one game he even got 17 points. This was hard to understand.
Hayden is not cocky, he is actually very humble, so I do not feel that this was a lesson he needed to learn in that department, I feel that the lesson was probably just to go to the Lord in prayer when things are not going well and to hang in there and God would work it out.
The icing on the cake....we won 70 to 40! Woot woo! Please come back tomorrow and I will share you a very sad and tragic story from last year's basketball season.
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Philippians 4:6
