Other than going to watch Baseball; I got to have great conversations in the car w/my kiddos on the way to the game... we stopped to look at deer, cows, horses, & turkey's. Of course they wanted to feed them but sunflower seeds wasn't gonna cut it ahahha. Along w/some stops of spanking, buckling back in their seats; I"m sure none of you all have ever had to do that and IF you haven't tell me your secret please!!! Nah... I love my kids, let them be kids.
Well, made it to church services today. I have not made it to church in the month of March except for today. I have been out of town or just plain lazy. I got to thinking while I was sitting in the pew today, thankful my kids were sitting and drawing and being semi-quiet; but I was listening to Trey; Preachers are a lot like Coaches! They expect us to read our bibles, spread the word; do good & be good; attend church. As Coaches we expect our players or ourselves to scout other teams; be at school or u don't play; behave by not getting in trouble cause you as an athlete represent our school/ community/ team/ & u r a reflection of the coach. Its amazing how we won't miss work cause we don't have enough days to be able to miss but yet we miss church cause we had a long weekend and need to sleep in. I am so GUILTY!!! As a teenager, during youth I had a Trey & Chad Massie, two incredible guys to teach us about the Lord. It hit me this morning how I need to be more like myself & do those little things of reading the bible, The Story or just living Christ like. I have strayed away. I have self-examined myself lately, how hateful I am; say rude remarks (maybe not out loud but to my self); blaming others instead of looking or blaming myself. Now don't get me wrong, I am proud of who I am and who I have become; but as a Christian I need be a better one. After I left Church; I had the radio on; listening to First Baptist Church- Chad King; it was like "Casey, I have my eyes on you!" Big Brother, Big God... what if there was d-hall for not coming to church or bible school? However, bottom line is I will do better and be a better person.
Until next time... mamabotos
