Let Our Hair Down

People bond and friendships emerge from shared experiences.  My calling for this blog is always for God’s glory, and that can be fulfilled in talking about empty vessels or baseball games!

We’ve enjoyed an unbelievably mild summer in the south this year. Rather than days and days of 100+ degree weather, we’ve really only had a handful of hot days. Given that our evenings hover right around 75 degrees with a nice breeze lately, and I was able to score free tickets to a baseball game, we were headed off to cheer on the Redbirds!

Auto Zone Park is a really nice park if you ever get a chance to visit. There is an electricity in the air at the ballgames here that is almost palpable. It is joyous excitement as folks just kick back and really enjoy themselves!

We normally sit between home plate and third base, but since the night was so cool, we strolled over to the outfield section for a different view. The kids enjoyed running around in the open area, and the view of the ballpark from here was amazing. It’s something how just changing seats give you a whole different perspective at ball parks and in life!

My two curly tops watched the game in wonder. BabyChick asked lots of baseball questions while Lil’Buddy pretended to throw each ball right along with the pitcher!

The fellowship of family is sweet, and it doesn’t take much effort to achieve that… just quality time together.

Ephesians 5:1-2
Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

  • What a wonderful family night! And a great reminder that sometimes we simply need to change our perspective a bit 🙂 Lovely!

  • It looks like you all had a very fun cool night. 🙂

  • Awwww!! What a great post! It IS helpful to get a change of perspective from time to time. AND, quality family time is rare (for us), so how nice is that for you?!?
    And can you believe it, but my son just started Pop Warner flag football, and his team is the Redbirds?? 🙂
