I had the chance to read my bible and write in my journal this morning and this verse really caught my eye this morning:
"My salvation and honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge." Psalm 62:7
This was so good for me to read before an important baseball game for Jack. I think it's sometimes more difficult for the parents than their kids playing to not put their own success or self-worth on how they play in the game. I want Jack to do well but ulimately, he is not a better or worse person because of what he does on the ball diamond. He's loved by God no matter what, along with his teammates, whether they know Him personally or not. Consequently I was supportive but calm during todays game and not at all upset that they lost. They move on to play for 3rd place tomorrow morning and I am so excited for them-for Jack-to have that opportunity.
Here is our Wednesday in photos:
Yum, bbq'd chicken!
Jack is crawling on the counter, why???
Jack didn't believe me that there was batting practice this morning because he didn't hear it said himself.
I need to spend more time listening to the kids talk to each other, just plain listening.
Hearing Blake and Jack laughing together while watching Blake play Minecraft, love that they enjoyed each others company rather than competing against each other :)
