One of my earthly passions…

Some of you know this about me already, but I rarely write about it, so I thought I’d share with you one of my favorite things in the world to do.

Racquetball is an incredible game. Sure, it probably helps that I have some talent at it, but I just love it. Fast paced action with a ball moving up to 150 mph (and when I play good people, we absolutely hit it that hard), a court that’s only 20 feet wide and 40 feet long yet can keep you running the entire time the ball is in play, the amount of strategy involved to play well, it just is such a great game!

Tonight I played some racquetball with Jesus. Jesus is a great guy I got to know as an apartment-mate last year, and this year we’ve started playing some racquetball together. I honestly don’t think he expected me to give him competition–and not only did I do that, but I’ve taken two of the three games we’ve played now (all three very, very close games). After the longest game of racquetball I’ve ever played, we went out and found a couple of good players to play doubles with. They took it to us the first game and skunked us, but we were tied the second game when we got kicked out of the rec building. Not because we were too good, just because it was closing.

So I thought I’d share with you the highlight of my day. I’ll get back to some of the worship comments tomorrow night, because I’m tired and want to go to bed.
