  • Wrestling Bears banquet...

  • Not all sports are must-see

    I didn’t watch the Floyd Mayweather Jr. – Manny Pacquiao fight, but from what I’ve read, seen on Facebook and heard from others, it apparently failed to live up to its billing as a boxing match.

    I’m certainly no boxing aficionado, but many who tune into the matches do so out of a desire to see a pummeling.

  • Watching our sports heroes age

    You don’t realize how old you’re getting until you realize how old your heroes have gotten.

  • It seemed like a good idea

    This morning as I was walking our dog, I noticed a lot of worms along the sidewalk and in the road. You’ve probably seen them from time to time too. Some of them are still wiggling a little, but many have sort of dried up. This morning I walked past one that was still moving a little and then I stopped. I went back and picked it up and tossed it in the grass thinking, “Well, at least that one will make it!”

  • Promoted to glory

    Just last week I was at the funeral of a friend of ours. His name was Howard Jones. His son and his wife have been good friends of ours since we moved to Louisville twenty years ago. Howard made an impression on everyone he came in contact with. From his sense of humor, to his love for the Lord, you knew God’s grace was upon him.

  • Christ was our pinch hitter

    Read Acts 3:11-26

    In the game of baseball there is a special position called a pinch hitter.

    A pinch hitter is a person that comes into the game to bat in place of another player, who is usually not a very good batter. One way a coach can use this position to his advantage in a baseball game, is if he needs a really good hit, in a very critical time in the game - he can replace the poor hitter with the really good pinch hitter.
