Oh snap! I had a revelation today! Maybe I don’t need a second part time after all. I mean, I survived the Spring quarter without one. I think God’s giving me all this free time so I can get things done early/volunteer/serve more… Hmm, good one God. You had me going there for a minute, but I see what you did there.
Wow! Our college small group might be the best thing ever. Such neat people and stories, each week it just seems to blow my mind more and more. Tonight we had a few people share some pretty personal stuff and it was soooo neat to see how God worked through other people who they had just met to tell them exactly what they needed to hear. We also had a record number of 17 people, which is huuuuuuge considering we only had about 6 at the beginning of this year. God is doing big things here in Cincy, I can’t wait to see what He will do next!
Well tonight should be interesting. After working the Viola Congress again all day I’ll be going to the biggest cruise in of the year so far. If last week was any indication of how epic it could be, we had a Cincy cop roll through the parking lot, ask us if the fastest car wanted to race (I wasn’t completely sure if he was actually kidding) and then did a burn out as he left. So yeah, tonight should be interesting.
Today. Was. Awesome!! It started out with a great morning and great message at church, then my entire afternoon was filled with awesome cars and driving 100+ miles around Cincy and ended with seeing my new twin nieces!!! I’ll be posting pictures and vids tomorrow but here’s a little teaser from the Poker Run:
SEATTLE (AP)—Ken Griffey Jr.(notes) retired Wednesday night, ending one of the great careers in baseball history.
The 40-year-old Griffey told the Mariners that he was done playing, and manager Don Wakamatsu made the announcement before Seattle faced Minnesota.
“While I feel I am still able to make a contribution on the field and nobody in the Mariners front office has asked me to retire, I told the Mariners when I met with them prior to the 2009 season and was invited back that I will never allow myself to become a distraction,” Griffey said in a statement.
“I feel that without enough occasional starts to be sharper coming off the bench, my continued presence as a player would be an unfair distraction to my teammates and their success as a team is what the ultimate goal should be,” he said.
Griffey was hitting only .184 with no homers and seven RBIs this year and recently went a week without playing. There was a report earlier this season— which Griffey denied—that he’d fallen asleep in the clubhouse during a game.
Griffey was a perennial All-Star outfielder and ranks fifth on the career home run list with 630. He won an MVP award and was a Gold Glover. The only thing missing on his resume was a trip to the World Series.
A star from the get-go, he played 22 years in the majors with Seattle, his hometown Cincinnati Reds and the Chicago White Sox. He hit .284 lifetime with 1,836 RBIs.
