For the past seven years spring and tennis have been synonymous in our family. Our afternoons and weekends are filled with fun tennis matches. When not watching tennis, we're talking tennis.
We follow Asbury University Men's Tennis Team. Due to ACL surgery, the number one player is out for the season. All the guys have shifted up one spot, plus they are getting used to different doubles partners.
It's been a season of growth through adversity.
James 1:2-4 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
God won't always prevent bad things from happening to us, but if we lean on him, He will be with us through the valley.
