Lady Pirates, keep on moving!



We are in the home stretch of school, only a few more weeks and we are in the home stretch of softball. These girls wanna go ALL THE WAY! Last night we played the Seminole Maidens in Seminole, game 1 of a 3 game playoff series. We play again today at 3 PM. Those Maidens? Now those girls are cheerleaders. HELLO! They screamed for an entire game! I'm thinking today? Maybe not so much because many of them won't have their dang voices! I can hope, no?

I'm a mom and I love my kid dearly, my beautiful Kalyn Marie. But I also love the others on the team. They are such great kids. They really are! I'm not just saying that because its "Cooper" and my kid's team. I've spent many minutes, hours, innings with these girls in the dugout, they've been to my house, hallways at school, facebook, etc. And they are just good kids. Beautiful girls! I enjoy their personalities, their strengths, their quirks. I'm always praying for them and concerned about them as a team.



I try and get my head in the Bible once a day and sometimes I fail miserably, sometimes? With a hot cup of coffee, I go to the Word. Here's a little something "food for thought" I found this morning. I thought it was awesome for my Lady Pirates.

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, ...

Pretty cool words.

same mind, having the same love

We seriously can kick some butt at softball. And my kid is part of that.

I love this game!

But I have to remember that Christ doesn't really care about the game of softball, meaning who wins and all that. He cares about the spirit and the heart of those playing. After all, he created those members of that team. Both teams. And He loves them. So just like a parent, he hurts when they hurt. He's filled with compassion. And he's THRILLED when they are happy!

And I'm pretty darn happy today.

Here's some game photos! Remember when we played pee-wee sports and made a tunnel for our kids to run through? Total cheerleaders and we so didn't care if we looked cool? Oh, yeah, WE DID THAT! Thank you, Kayla. LOL

Go Lady Pirates!
