It’s been a long, hot day filled with softball and friends. Our girls played 4 games, three of them back-to-back from 7:00pm-11:30pm non stop. They fought hard and dug deep to find the strength to compete. They encouraged each other, covered each other’s backs, and played not just for themselves as individuals, but for the girls in the field beside them.
By the championship game they were worn out. The other team had a break and were much fresher and we got behind in the very beginning. Our girls fought hard to stay within striking distance but the lead was not be be had. But they didn’t stop. They kept cheering each other on, they kept fighting, they played hard. And after a tie breaker in extra innings, they brought home the 1st place trophy. It was an awesome day.
I know today was just a day of fun and softball, but doesn’t that relate to our lives as well? The kind of people we surround ourselves with, the people we choose to be on our team – they make a huge difference in our lives. We need God in our corner coaching us through each play, giving us direction. And we need team mates that work with us, help us, and build us up when we are down.

How thankful I am for the people God continues to put in our lives. Way to go Ladies, way to get the job done!
