another season comes to a close. beau had his last game tuesday night. beau loved playing center field but was a little hard to get motivated this year. he never wanted to put his uniform on, leave the sofa & snacks, or stop riding his bike to head to a game or practice. but once he got a few pieces of bubble gum & he was good to go. he played because he knew at the end of the game there would be a good round of gatorade & some chips thrown in. worth playing for snacks! he even loved playing in the outfield because he got to watch the girls play on the playground. whew...we will be in trouble when he is a teenager!
great season beau!
great season beau!
we are so proud of you!

i am a devotional freak. i have 2 going online, have done "bible in a year" each year, our daily bread tucked in my bible...on and on...
but one has never been this perfect, so fitting. a friend lost her husband and this was emailed to me that day. it is from my utmost for his highest. god speaks loud & clear, just be quiet & listen.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? —Romans 8:35
God does not keep His child immune from trouble; He promises, "I will be with him in trouble . ."( Psalm 91:15 ). It doesn’t matter how real or intense the adversities may be; nothing can ever separate him from his relationship to God. "In all these things we are more than conquerors . . ." ( Romans 8:37 ). Paul was not referring here to imaginary things, but to things that are dangerously real. And he said we are "super-victors" in the midst of them, not because of our own ingenuity, nor because of our courage, but because none of them affects our essential relationship with God in Jesus Christ. I feel sorry for the Christian who doesn’t have something in the circumstances of his life that he wishes were not there.
"Shall tribulation . . . ?" Tribulation is never a grand, highly welcomed event; but whatever it may be— whether exhausting, irritating, or simply causing some weakness— it is not able to "separate us from the love of Christ." Never allow tribulations or the "cares of this world" to separate you from remembering that God loves you ( Matthew 13:22 ).
"Shall . . . distress . . . ?" Can God’s love continue to hold fast, even when everyone and everything around us seems to be saying that His love is a lie, and that there is no such thing as justice?
"Shall . . . famine . . . ?" Can we not only believe in the love of God but also be "more than conquerors," even while we are being starved?
Either Jesus Christ is a deceiver, having deceived even Paul, or else some extraordinary thing happens to someone who holds on to the love of God when the odds are totally against him. Logic is silenced in the face of each of these things which come against him.
Only one thing can account for it— the love of God in Christ Jesus.
"Out of the wreck I rise" every time.

poor mac. he spent the weekend in pain. he had a tooth infection. ahhhh!!!
he went to the dentist today & had his tooth pulled. thankfully it was a baby tooth.
