Values to Stand For

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

“Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents.  Mostly what God does is love you.  Keep company with Him and learn a life of love.

Observe how Christ loved us.  His love was not cautious but extravagant.  He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us.  Love like that.”

                                                            Ephesians 5:1-2 (The Message)

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”     

Hebrews 12: 1-2 (NIV)

 

            It would be the toughest baseball game of the year for them.  Everything they had worked and hoped for was within their grasp.  (more…)

Non-Perfect Perfect Moments

Just some early morning thoughts from me to you…

 

“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I do hope.  My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning—yes, more than those who watch for the morning.”

                                                            Psalm 130: 5, 6 (NKJV)

 

“Safe!”

The call and signal by American League first-base umpire Jim Joyce was emphatic and immediate. 

And wrong. (more…)
