‘Tis The Season
Last week, I drove across the state to see my grandsons play baseball and eat barbeque with one of them at school. And, at the game, God graced us with a rainbow.
I thoroughly loved watching Jon pitch. He throws serious heat! But then, he has a great coach who threw pretty serious heat when he was in school, too. This was the first actual game I was able to watch, and Jon had an impressive strikeout string. I’m proud of him! I’m proud of his coach, too.
God has given Jon ability and good coaching. More than that, he has an attitude to succeed.
Up To Bat … And Eat …
Jon’s brother, Steven, plays right field on the same team. It’s the first game I’ve seen Steven play, too. He backs up his brother with great enthusiasm!
But the next morning (before my long drive home), I had the best time with Steven at his end-of-year-school barbeque. We had hot dogs and chicken. Yum.
And I got to see the model of ancient Troy that Steven and Mom made. The kids in his class made models and did research on ancient cities. I am very proud of Steven and his work.
Then he ran off to play with his buddies. Just as well, since I had to drive home.
Gold at the End of the Rainbow
It rained a bit at the game. Not enough to stop play, but enough to form a rainbow. And I can now say that I have seen the end of the rainbow. Yes, it ploughed right into the ground.
So, is there a pot of gold? Depends on what you consider “gold.”
God made a promise to us earthlings through Noah long ago. No more wiping out mankind through grand scale water. Next time it will be fire. But for now, God placed a rainbow in the sky when it rains to remind us of His faithfulness to keep His promises.
I looked from the rainbow to my grandsons playing on the baseball diamond.
Yep, I saw gold at the end of the rainbow.
