"That's my boy..."
Earlier today, during a cloudy, blustery North Carolina afternoon,
my son, my handsome, funny, talented, tender-hearted, athletic son
won the RCC Christmas Classic Tennis Tournament
for boys 12 years old and younger
down in Gastonia, North Carolina.
It's the first tournament he has ever won.
He is likely to be ranked in the top 65
of all 12 year old players
in the state as a result of this win. Yeah for him!
That's my boy!
While everything was going on with his sister,
he never once wavered in his love for her.
He followed the example of his Biblical namesake, Daniel:
he prayed for her regularly in spite of all the odds.
And celebrated with joy as she was healed.
That's my boy.
