Speechless

The UA volleyball team played its first matches this weekend.  Josh's first weekend coaching at the division I level was a good one... the team went 2-1, with a big win over Iowa on Saturday night.

It was also an emotional weekend.  Josh and I were speechless when we discovered that Noah's name has been embroidered on all of the Alabama volleyball jerseys... what a sweet, unexpected tribute to our little Noah man.  



The team also wore blue ribbons on their shoes (and Coach Green on her shirt) in Noah's memory.  We continue to be blessed even in our sadness.

This is God. I'm sure Josh works with wonderful people. But this is God. He is amazing! I am excited about reading of the many ways he will lift you up, during these dark, sad times.

It is a pleasure to pray for you.

That's wonderful. Even though some of us do not really know you, I think we all feel the bond as parents. And as a result of that I think Noah's in our thoughts often.
