Saturday afternoon my husband and I attended the state playoff game for 5A basketball at ORU.
Memorial’s Kalib Boone and Kori Guest each scored 18 points to lead top-ranked Memorial to its second consecutive Class 5A boys state basketball championship. But it took the entire team to win it.
Against Booker T. Washington. The state title came down to two teams. Tulsa rivals. May the best man win.
And they did.
It was the game of all games. 5500 fans watched as the top players from the state played their hearts out for the title. Memorial defending their title from the year prior.
I can’t remember watching such an exciting game. Except watching them play the night before.
They are good. They are beyond good. They excel. The talent and skill abound.
My favorite part is watching as a young man scores and raises his finger to the sky to give glory to God. Praising God for his talent and skill.
What talent and skill do you have? Do you offer praises to God for it?
Let’s all be thankful for our victories in life. No matter how large or small. Winning state or tying our own shoe. They are real. And never forget, God cares about each of them.
Congratulations Memorial 5A champs! Well done!
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Jesus Christ. Colossians 3:23-24
Love and laughter,
