Driller's Place Has Moved - It's Official

After 10 years on EBlogger, I am making the move to WordPress. I have been testing the site for a couple of weeks now and I am satisfied that WordPress is where my blog will now reside.  I have never had any major issues with blogger and I have enjoyed sharing my adventures here, but the time has come for me to move in a different direction. Since my blog contains a large number of photos, WordPress seems to do a better job of displaying the images. You will notice that my new address is www.drillersplace.wordpress.com.  Come on over and see what I'm doing now.

Testing on WordPress is going well. You can click on Driller's Place and the link will take you to the other site. The content will be the same, but the layout will be quite different. Let me know what you think on either site. Decision time is approaching.

Awe...some Mondays

We interrupt this blog for the following announcement. I am still testing my site over on WordPress so you can find similar content to this post over at Driller's Place on WordPress. Stop by and see what you think, then let me know which site you prefer. We now return to our regularly scheduled programming.
Spring soccer is here!!! I love high school soccer. Our daughter played when she was in high school, our oldest grand daughter played the sport during her high school years, and now the youngest grand daughter is a sophomore and playing on the high school JV team.

 She is the one in the center of the frame in the white uniform. Last Tuesday the JV team opened their season with a double header. Our granddaughter scored four goals in the two matches. We didn't get to see the first match, but here are the photos of the two goals she scored in the second contest.

This is the first year she has had the opportunity to play the center forward position and she is making the most of it. This shot finds the lower left corner of the goal.

A little later in the match she finds that lower left corner open again and beats the goal tender to the spot for her second score. Something tells me that this is going to be a fun season to watch.

Awe...some Mondays

Saturday I headed out to Fayetteville to watch the high school indoor track and field state championships. Our youngest granddaughter competes in the high jump as a sophomore. It was a long but exciting day at the track. The highlight of the day was this young man.

This competitor won the pole vault by being the only one to clear 15'-6". The bar was moved to 16'-0" and he cleared that height as well. Again the bar was raised and set at 16'-6"! This photo is the successful vault at the height of 16'-6". The state record for pole vault is 17'-1", so the bar was raised to 17'-2". After several hours of competition, there just wasn't enough left in the tank to clear the record setting height. Still, it was an Awe...some day at the track.

Inspiration Thursday - I Need Thee Every Hour

How often have you found yourself in a difficult situation and turned to God in prayer? When the difficulties of this life find their way into our existence, it is easy to look toward heaven and proclaim to the Creator that we cannot handle the situation and we are turning the issue over to Him. We are turning loose of the reigns and allowing God to fix the problem. Once the thing that has caused us so much anguish is resolved, we say, "Thank you Lord, I'll take it from here." God has a plan for our life. His plan is detailed and complete. It encompasses every moment that we live, whether we are awake or asleep. God's plan is not just for the difficult times or for those events that seem to spiral our life out of control. No, God's plan is more complete than that. While we may acknowledge that we need Him in the bad times, the truth is, I Need Thee Every Hour. Have a blessed day.
