So, the pansy-ification bosses, whoever they are, decided that our kids were hitting the bat too hard or were having too much fun. And so they got together to decide just how pansy-ish they could make our kids and how at the same time they could make a heck of a lot of money. And voila, they decided kids’ baseball bats now had to be made of a composite plastic that would hit really woosy-like and cost a fortune. And this is now required! So the ball isn’t hit as hard. And we are supposed to be ok with us, this dumbing down of childhood, this making our kids whimpy/pansies, especially for money, is apprehensive and should be so. And to enforce it, if their baby expensive bats are not used, they will withdraw insurance so they are reinforcing it. I just want everyone to know this is not ok. It is right up there with not allowing guns to be purchased because someone was shot by a derilect three states over. Like the gun is the perpetrator and fires itself and like bats kill kids because they are too hard. What? Have people lost their American minds listening to that garbage? What’s next, full body armor to catch the ball???
I remember back when people supported America and football was a good game to watch. I remember when people were Christian Americans first and football players after that. I remember when they were played a lot of American dollars to play football. It sure would be a shame if America stopped making them dollar bills out of protest.
In waiting for a storm to arrive, I finished one more row of tying on the quilt, making 4 rows finished now and 5 more to go. Almost half! Yay! I thank God for the extra time to work on it as I pray.
In a related story, there have been many situations where it was blessing, horrible, blessing, horrible and then a huge blessing in the end, so keep praying hard and hang in there. What the enemy wishes for evil, God can turn it into good. He creates beauty from devastation as His signature favorite-of-mine ability. Pray on and keep going. God loves you more than you can imagine and always will. Hang onto Him! ❤❤❤
Too much sun today, from Homeschool Group meeting and then pool time. Lots of sun, lots of heat. Did I mention hot?
So the pool felt good but added to the sun part. And I thought, isn’t that what we do in life? We play with fire, get close to it, have a little more fun, stay a little bit longer and before we know it, we are wounded, burned. Christians seem hell bent on seeing how much of the world they can enjoy and still be saved, how close to the fire without getting burned. Instead, we should be enjoying the fruit of the Spirit and seeing how different we can be from the world as we worship and serve the Lord. ❤
Doing something good does not offset or make up for something bad you do, even if you believe that to be true or have made such a habit of this balance game that you do it automatically. What makes up for doing something wrong, like stealing, lying, cheating, doing drugs, getting drunk, watching porn, getting off on someone other than your spouse, killing someone, hating someone, not doing or saying what you should, etc. is to stop doing it and not do it again. God forgives most willingly if you humbly ask Him but if you ask forgiveness and then do it all over again, are you sincere? It would be like my daughter as ask toddler writing all over the wall with crayons and then telling me she is sorry then doing it again when I walk out of the room. The next day, telling me she’s sorry then doing it again. As a mom, I would be sad that she was still doing it and would rather she not even ask me if she didn’t mean it and was just going to do it again. Now a toddler doesn’t get that at all but we as adults do. We need to reapect and honor God so much that we don’t risk doing anything that would make Him sad or disappointed or even worse angry. I would rather err on the side of caution than risk disrespecting Him intentionally. I do that enough unintentionally. And I work on all this. It is hard to keep up with it but thank God He also helps us do what pleases Him!! Woo hoo!!❤❤❤
