Softball lessons

softball

It’s softball season again. With that comes the practices. The practices & games that you aren’t really sure what you are supposed to wear. It can be about 42 degrees, 75 degrees, windy or hot as a firecracker. You just never know what’s going to happen with spring in the South! I always do love getting to see how much the girls have grown, since the year before. There are always new girls that decide to try softball & see what it’s all about. Our girls are the 9-10 year olds. With that said, you know it is entertaining.
One of the best things I have seen so far was in a practice. The coach was getting the girls to practice hitting. Oh, did I mention this is the 1st year of kid pitch? The pitcher is an actual player. Not like years past, of coach pitch. There were several players that went up to bat. There were not many hits being made. Then, one little girl walked up to the plate. It was her first time to play softball. She gets in her batting stance, then stops & looks around at the coach. She said, “What do you want me to do when I hit it?” I was standing in the dugout. I laughed to myself. This little girl had some courage! She had already assumed the hit. It never occurred to her, that she wasn’t going to hit the ball.
This is the kind of faith the Lord wants us to have.
In Matthew 17:20 it says
And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed,
ye shall say unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove; and
nothing shall be impossible unto you.
We should always be willing to assume the Lord will handle our situations. However, I get impatient, don’t you? That’s when I worry, fret, walk around with a cloud over my head. Instead I should say, “What do I need to do, once I receive my blessing?” That’s the attitude this sweet first time softball player had. And you know what? She did need to know what to do when she hit the ball. Because she did.

I am so glad you stopped by for a spell.  It makes my heart happy when you come by for a visit.  I hope you are having a great week.  I have to be going for now, because I should be washing clothes.
