{these moments}: Blessings Beyond Baseball

{these moments}: A Friday ritual.  Lots of photos - a few words - of moments from the week.  Simple, special, extraordinary moments.  Moments I want to pause, savor and remember.

Our boys will be playing in a special tournament this weekend - a tournament for which young baseball players have raised over $330,000 for Pediatric Cancer patients.  Here are photos of the Kyle's Kamp tournament's "Kick-off Event" at Washington Nationals Park on Sunday.  It was a thrilling time for our boys to walk the field and be on the big screen at a Major League park.  There were many lessons taught regarding hitting, fielding and throwing.  More importantly, there were lessons taught about the fragility of life, the tenacious work of a father turning tragedy into triumph, the gracious dedication of doctors and the courage of children faced with battles unimaginable.  This will be a weekend when a game they love to play becomes so very much more.  This will be a weekend when our boys will swing for the fences not for themselves, perhaps not even for their teammates, but for one of the most precious, most courageous little five year olds that they will ever meet.

Stealing the words of my pastor yet again:

When our obedience matches God's call, blessing happens.


Have a blessed Memorial Day Weekend.
