New brusies

So last week Cady busted a toe, then she skinned a knee at school then yesterday during practicing at home Silas wacked her with the baseball bat on the upper arm (on accident).

Tuesday Silas got hit in the head with a baseball, then today while trying to learn to skate he bloodied his nose when he fell and then tonight skinned his knee in a bike accident.

Into each life hurt will come, then more, then more, then more. And sometimes we want to give up but as I told Silas yesterday when he wanted to give up baseball, your team needs you. And so does yours...we are all needed...we all have a job, some small, some large (thanks to Bee Movie for the confirming illustration). Be we can't give in to discouragment, can't give up the dream. I love baseball- so many lessons. I was so proud of my Silas last night after such a hard time he gave 110% in his game, he even played hind catcher. No hits yet, it's hard. You know I'll be shouting when the first hit comes, and God cheers us on when we serve through the pain, and persevere for sake of God's team. Stay tuned for more lessons from the field....ld
