So today I'ld like to share with you what has been going on with Hayden over the past 7 months. First I want to say that we have enjoyed watching all of our boys participating in sports and all their other events. Football has been especially fun for Eric and I to watch. When Hayden had his last game of the season last fall, I was surprised at how sad I was that it was over. I blogged about it and you can read it here. This story is about our journey that started with the end of football.
Hayden did exceptionally well in football and towards the end of the season he started talking about wanting to play football in college. At the end of the season when I was so sad, I wrote down the above prayer. I asked that if it's God's will that Hayden could play college football.
"Hayden – Great to hear from you and sorry we haven’t been in contact before today. You sound exactly like the kind of guy we are looking for! I’ll be able to watch your film today and will get back to you a little later in the afternoon. Look forward to getting introduced,Coach Craft"
"Hayden- It was great to visit with you today, I'm fired up about your interest in Pacific University and our Football program. I want to make sure you have some links to navigate our University's website and our athletic web-page as well. I have also put a couple of links below that I encourage you to look at including our application. I look forward to visiting with you again soon. Please feel free to call or write back with any questions.Take Care& Go Boxers! Coach Craft"
here. The problem that is really nagging me is that both Linfield and Pacific are private colleges and private schools and are very, very expensive. They are more than double the cost of public colleges and community colleges. I did not have a good feeling about my son going in to so much debt for his college education.
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Phillipians 4:6-7
