Let's Go MAVS!

Yesterday afternoon I got a message from my friend Meredith- asking if I wanted two tickets to a MAVS game. The tickets were $150 face value tickets and the game was for that evening. And it was a PLAYOFF game...Against the SPURS!

I love the faith that was produced in their lives because of these turn of events.....Well. I kept reading and after they'd been thrown into the fire- King Neb said to the officials around (dan 3:25) "Look- I see for men walking in the fire- unbound and unharmed."

The word UNBOUND. This word stuck out to me.

Prior to having made the decision to be thrown…
