had the absolute thrilling privilege
of sitting in floor seats at the men's university
exhibition basketball game Sunday afternoon.
Like Jack Nicholson or Spike Lee.
I have never sat in floor seats EVER.
But I can't complain,
I had killer seats at a football game
not too long ago.
|This was our view.|
A friend invited McDaniel and a few other girls,
courtesy of her friend's father's work.
|I feel sorry for whoever had to sit behind McDaniel's|
enormous hair bun. Oh wait, no I don't, they were
still in fantastic seats.
|McDaniel's feet and view.|
|This ref was so close he could've heard the girls|
|McDaniel just loved the seriousness and intensity|
this guy brought to his job
|If you check out the screen, you can see all the girls by the referee.|
We later saw a passing glance of them on the local news.
Because, well, they were right there
in the floor seats,
where all the action was.
She said she became aware that whatever she hollered out
Amazing, thought, huh?
Well, I guess Spike Lee always knew that
and took considerable advantage of it.
Kinda changes what you'd holler out, wouldn't it?
Would make you stop and gather your thoughts a bit more, wouldn't it?
Again, apparently not if you are Spike Lee.
[Just pause and let that sink in for a second.]
Yes, this couple READ while they sat in the most coveted floor seats of a college basketball game.
The ENTIRE time.
|See the readers?|
The lady read "iPhone for Dummies".
With an iPhone sitting in her lap the entire time.
I better not get that book as a "gift" anytime soon.
for even a minute.
Why would you spend the money to sit in or even receive as a gift,
if you never bothered to pay attention to
or even look up
at the game going on
Makes me wonder if God ever thinks that of us.
Wonders why we have our nose buried in the world
when He has
blessed us with the
blessed us with the
BEST SEATS IN THE HOUSE.
The action is right there before us.
He wants us to be in awe of Him.
Amazed by His love.
Full of wonder at His creation.
He wants us to praise Him.
(And yes, people are listening when we do it.)
He just doesn't want us to miss it.
"Many, Lord my God,
are the wonders you have done,
the things you planned for us.
None can compare with you;
were I to speak and tell of your deeds,
they would be too many to declare."
"In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared; he is more awesome than all who surround him. O LORD God Almighty, who is like you? You are mighty, O LORD, and your faithfulness surrounds you."
