so, that was disappointing.

wow-- what happened tonight, baylor?
that was our shot, right?
national championship dreams-- gone.
hooooollllyyy wow... this isn't the baylor team we were expecting.
at least our colors aren't orange and black.
at least we live in texas. they have to stay in oklahoma.

i hate to admit that all of these thoughts crossed my mind tonight. for baylor nation, losing to oklahoma state felt somewhat like a giant slap to the face, but The Lord reminded me of something as i watched/screamed at the TV while bryce petty missed that snap in the beginning of the 4th quarter.

hold up, haley. keep things in perspective. you serve a God who is far more sovereign than baylor football. baylor wins? He is good. baylor loses? He is still good. we have the huge blessing of being able to attend baylor university, and having a football team full of studs is just an added bonus. while i am just as disappointed as the next fan, (texts to my boyfriend and i quote: "WHAT THE HECK IS ILLEGAL TOUCHING?!?! .. crying. .. I'm going to hit something.") all that matters at the end of the day is that our King is still on His throne and we find our identity in Him-- not how well our beloved bears do on a given saturday. sic 'em.
