On Saturday the big boys went to the 19th annual Venice Surf A Thon, its the longest running local surf contest in the Venice/Santa Monica (Dogtown) area. Daddy won 1st place in the Senior Men's Division and Jesse won 2nd place in the Grom division.
My husband had the opportunity to pray for the event before it began, this is not a Christian event. The coordinator and founder asked him to open the contest with a prayer, these are the words from his blog about the prayer.
(There were no waves, also know as flat!)
We gathered in a circle and Pastor Papik prayed for us. Now here is the supernatural event I will testify to a bon-e-fide spiritual miracle and I kid you not, as I looked up from prayer, a nice clean two foot wave appeared breaking cleanly left and right! As the first heat of super groms paddled out the sets continued to build with a rising tide including sets of threes!
How amazing that God answered his prayer for waves! The wave miracle was mentioned several times throughout the day.
Jesse about to get barrel!
Daddy getting his trophy!
Jesse getting his trophy!
I am so proud of all my boys! Little Jimmy is also a winner because he has a great attitude and is happy for his Brother and Dad. He showed superb sportsmanship!
Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.
~1 Timothy 4:7-8
