She's BACK!!

Many of you know the story.

(Yes, I know this picture is out of focus. It's kind of symbolic.)

For those of you who don't know the story, I'll sum up.

We've got a pretty awesome girl in our family. I'd even say she is an inspiration. She knows what she believes, and the kind of person she wants to be. And she knows always doing what is right doesn't mean things always turn out right at the end of the day...or the softball season. Last year Kamberlynne's travel softball coaches decided that since Kamberlynne absolutely totally and completely does not play sports on Sunday, she would need to find another team. Yes, she shared the starting pitcher position with only one other girl. Yes, she is a talented athlete. Yes, she played with that team for three years. Yes, they originally invited her to play knowing she didn't play on Sundays. Yes, they ultimately left the decision up to her. Yes, she totally loves softball. So what did she tell them?

She told them she loves God more.

Like I said, she's pretty awesome.

And what happened? She went this summer season without playing. The whole situation was really hard, But God "works all things for good to them that love Him". He really does. A couple of weeks ago, Kamberlynne stepped back on the mound for the first time in a year, playing for a team that is very very happy to have her, and very very supportive of her Sunday worship decision.

It's been a year, but her 4-0 pitching record and homerun 1st game back make it hard to tell!

The Thunder are lucky to have her on their team, but we are luckier to have such an amazing girl in our home!
Welcome Home, Loo!
