  • 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!”

  • 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.
