A snowboarding story

I'll make this short

So, the other day, I went snowboarding with Chip over at snow creek. We're having good times, I'm falling a little entering the drop into the hill, cause it's pure ice, but other than that, no problems. My feet feel comfortable in the bindings, like I was doing this yesterday, so we decided to go do the run with the jump on it. It's not that big, more of a tapered downslope after the little crest, but anyway, we decide to do this a couple times. I'm not doing too bad, I get some air, land, and then tumble and repeat that several times. It was painful, cause I would land, then lose my balance, then fall. Well, one time I decide to get a little more speed, and a little more air, and then I land, and tumble like normal, nothing seems out of the know, "there I was, minding my own business," when all of a sudden in the middle of my roll, I feel my right foot is free from the board. And then it was like slow motion. You know like something out of the movies. I saw the board swing around in a vertical circle, and then whack! The edge of the board slams right into the left side of my groin! I saw it coming the whole time, and there was nothing I could about it. It was like something out of final destination when they see their doom coming right at them, and all they can do is wait. So, I laid there for a minute or two, and then tried to get up. Chip saw the whole thing happen, so he was standing there thinking I was truly hurt. Fortunatly, nothing important got hit, but a quarter of an inch to the right, and I would be having some major problems! So I tried to get up, but the muscle there was way to soar, so I kinda crawled to my knees, handed chip my board, which he skiid to the bottom, and then I finally stood and hobbled my way to the bottom. I showed the rental people my board, and they were sorta puzzled how it happened (it's supposed to be nearly impossible). They asked if I was hurt, and I told them no (but I was thinking, "it didn't feel too good."). They issued me a new board, I sat for a few minutes, then I went back up with my new board and had at it again. My muscle didn't hurt when my feet were locked into the bindings, it was only when I finished a run and had to push with it that it hurt, and hurt real bad.

So, that's that.

My testing yesterday...hmmm...
I didn't have to take the physical cause I already had a CPAT, but I was supposed to take the written, and climb the aerial ladder. Well, the ladder had a hydraulic leak, so that was postponed till later, and then the written. I have never had test anxiety ever in my life, but for some reason I had it big time here. It seemed like my head was in a fog, and I couldn't keep focused on what I was doing. Several times, I had to go back and re-read something, cause it went in and straight out. It was wierd. So, I have no idea of how I did on this. I'm going to finish this post, then go pick up a guitar from the shop, then go over to city hall and ask her. She graded them last night, so I can find out today. We'll see. In order to move on, I had to get into the top 7 of 13. This normally isn't a problem, but like I said, I don't know where my head was at. So, Lord willing, I'll have made into the top 7 and onto an oral board interview. I'll come back on and post later as to the results. I fully trust this into God's hands, and if he doesn't want me in the fire service, fair enough. I told myself a while back that I would try a specific # of times to make in the fire service, and if it didn't work out, I would pursue full time ministry. So, maybe this was a God induced fog, I don't know, but I trust Him and His plan for me.

(not really related, but part of what I'm reading this morning)
Ephesians 1:3-14

How we praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we belong to Christ. Long ago, even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. And this gave him great pleasure.
So we praise god for the wonderful kindess he has poured out on us because we belong to his dearly loved Son. He is so rich in kindness that he purchased our freedom through the blodd of his Son, and our sins are forgiven. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.
God's secret plan has now been revealed to us; it is a plan centered on Christ, designed long ago according to his good pleasure. And this is his plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ--everything in heaven and on earth. Furthermore, because of Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us from the beginning, and all things happen just as he decided long ago. God's purpose was that we who were the first to trust in Christ should praise our glorious God. And now you also have heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago. The SPirit is God's guarantee that he will give us everything he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. This is just one more reason for us to praise our glorious God.

AMEN! I found that passage to be particularly encouraging this morning.

Love you guys and have a wonderful day.
