“Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.” Revelation 2:10
Being faithful can be easy when things are going well, but faithfulness in the face of suffering, require special character and dedication. Jesus says “True faithfulness is to remain dedicated to Me even when there’s no way out. Don’t let your faithfulness be conditional – dependent on blessings and protection. Be unconditionally faithful, so that you can inherit God’s eternal life.” “There is more to God’s life than your experiences on this side of eternal life. God’s faithfulness goes beyond the grave! This life will pass away, but God’s life is for all eternity. “ A good start is important, but Jesus wants us to remain faithful until the end.
To fiercely cling to this life, makes us as miserable as the world. Our Hope and Faith must be separated from our circumstances. It should dwell in the Person and character of Jesus Christ.
Baseball: In the Beginning
It has to start somewhere. For me at was 50ish years ago when I first played T-Ball at Middle Valley Recreation when I was 5 years old. Back then, I think I was resigned to standing in right field playing with the grass and picking whatever wildflower was growing 😂. Today, on my 55th Birthday, I reflect on how I became to be competitive in the sport over the years, whether it was playing or coaching in some form. My live for the game has continued to grow (Thank you Lord). I am so grateful for the breath of life that has been gifted to me and what the game of baseball has been in my life and others close to me!!

Whoops, No Present
Forget about the past, you can’t change it. Forget about the future, you can’t predict it. Forget about the present, I didn’t get you one.

Age is a relative thing. All my relatives keep reminding me how old I am.
