“The gifts of the Master are these: freedom, life, hope, new direction, transformation, and intimacy with God. If the cross was the end of the story, we would have no hope. But the cross isn't the end. Jesus didn't escape from death; he conquered it and opened the way to heaven for all who will dare to believe. The truth of this moment, if we let it sweep over us, is stunning. It means Jesus really is who he claimed to be, we are really as lost as he said we are, and he really is the only way for us to intimately and spiritually connect with God again.”

 Grandson Knox will be playing Pee Wee T Ball this season, his first time on the diamond. Practice starts next week. 
 Grandpa gave him some batting lessons this afternoon. It's important to have the right stance.
 Grandson Elijah gave his cousin Knox pointers on how to hold the bat. Elijah is an old pro, playing since he was about five.
 Line those feet up next to the plate and angle your body just so
 Swing straight and not down
 I think he's got it! Knox says when he plays, he'll hit a home run. Can't wait to see it.
 Grandpa gave Elijah some pitching tips ~ he should have played in the major leagues (or maybe kid's pitch?)
Happy dancing because it's almost spring and they'll be out on the ball field soon.
Happy TGIF, everyone! Happy Dance!

March brings breezes loud and shrill, Stirs the dancing daffodil. ~Sara Coleridge ~1834

March, when days are getting long,
Let thy growing hours be strong
To set right some wintry wrong.
~Caroline May, 1887
Spring is coming!
