That's what I'm looking at, and will be looking at for some time now. A calendar full of practices and games, among all the other life happenings around here. Baseball has begun. I love it! Really I do. I really, really do. Who am I trying to convince-me or you? lol!!!!
Really, I do like the sport. I enjoy watching my boys play. It's the longevity of it. February until August is a bit much if you ask me. And nobody does. Just saying:-)
With all the technology and other things that capture our youths attention, a little or lot of outdoor activity can't be a bad thing. It seems like everyday I hear of kids being overwhelmed with peer pressure and succumbing to it. As my boys are reaching the ages where a little more freedom is extended to them, I pray even harder for them. I've never been one to say, "my kid would never do that." All I can do is hope and pray that they will withstand satan's attempts to steal their youth. My heart is heavy tonight. Will you please join me in praying for them every night through the month of March? Not that they don't need our prayers everyday for the rest of their lives, but if we could really focus on them this month. God's Word promises that He hears the cries of His people. Just pause at bedtime each night and seek God's face on behalf of our youth. Let's pray a hedge around them!
I would love to hear from you. Leave a comment of encouragement for the youth. And remember to pray.
