Well, Malachi has officially started the baseball season. This is his first year to play and most of the boys on his team have been playing for a few years but that hasn't gotten him down one bit! He is in the outfield and when he is paying attention he does great - it's when he gets distracted that we run into problems.
You know - it really reminds me of my walk with the Lord and when sometimes he puts me in the outfield. I do really great when I am paying attention to His Word and spending time with my "coach" but then when I allow the little things in life distract me....well that is when I run into trouble! I guess we can all learn a few lessons from baseball!
