baseball season

Baseball season is starting in two weeks and this year we will be watching two athletes.  Connor is playing tball this year on the Angels and Micah is in the 7-8 year olds on the Blue Jays.  

We have known one of Connor's coaches since we moved to Conyers because I taught with his wife who is also a very good friend still!  Both of his coaches go to church together and are so patient.  It's exactly what I wanted for Connor's first experience.  A little skill practice and a lot of patience and fun!  He's the oldest on his team and you can totally tell but it's a good leadership opportunity for him.

As both boys prepare on the field, Zach and I are preparing our hearts for the environment of games.  You don't have to look too far for an opportunity to show the love of Christ.  Yes there are the obvious places and through ministries but EVERY place you are in whether it's your car in traffic, your job, the grocery store, the gym, or an athletic game is an opportunity to be the light of Christ. Through that Spirit within you, you can shine like Matthew 5:16 says, you can be different like in John 13:34-35, and you will hopefully have the opportunity to fulfill 1 Peter 3:15.  So pray for us please that we can do these things, as we pray for you to do them within the places and opportunities God places you.
