Annie and friend

I prefer being in the dugout to being around parents who seem to forget that I'm the coaches wife when they start complaining about decisions made during the course of a game. And the upside is that I'm able to get better shots, I get to see Steven in action, and Annie is earning clothes money keeping score for her dad. It's a win-win situation.

From finding Common Ground by Tim Downs.....
“'Courage is not simply one of the virtues,' wrote C.S. Lewis, 'but the form of every virtue at the testing point, which means, at the point of highest reality.' Courage is the willingness to hold all of the other virtues--love, mercy, honesty, faithfulness--even when there is danger or personal risk. 'Pilate was merciful,' said Lewis, 'till it became risky.' Courage will always be the cornerstone of all Christian virtues because courage makes all the others possible. Courage makes sure that a Christian is not just a 'fair weather friend' but a faithful servant regardless of the consequences. It's difficult to overestimate the value of courage in the Christian life."

thanks to Julie, my sister my friend, for sending me this....and reminding us all.

Great picture. I really like the lighting.
I enjoy having you near when I work, even though it appears I am ignoring you.



it wasn't me said...

i like that picture of Annie, and i do love that quote, but why do i feel so horrified every time i see my name, or any reference to me, in print?


...i'd prefer you just run me over in your car.
