Sunday Song

Lamentations 3:21-23
Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Psalm 117
Praise the LORD, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples.

For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever.  Praise the LORD.

As the world gets crazier, as our leaders seem to not value life or the voice of those they represent, just remember this simple and timeless truth:  God is on His throne, He reigns, keeps His promises, He provides, and He is in control.  The world might think it can do whatever it wants and follow its own will; however, there is ONE who cannot be moved, but is the One who moves mountains.

“Great is Thy Faithfulness”–Selah

Once, a couple years ago in the Senate cafeteria, Barrack Obama remarked that he never got tired of hearing John Kerry’s Vietnam war stories. Big mistake.

Too excited to sleep!

I try to not talk about my love of sports too much.  Why?  Years of being hammered by my teams, because I dared to get up my hopes for their success.

I’m not a “stepford” fan.  I admit when we suck.  I admit that there are idiots who call themselves fans, yet degrade the teams by acting like fools.

But tonight, I’m too excited to sleep.  The Phillies have won the NLCS two years in a row…a World Series appearance two years in a row.  As a Philadelphia sports fan, this is surreal and unimagineable.

The usual ride of a Philly team’s sports season is thus:  a preseason that feels like nothing good will come of the season, a season that usually begins with a bunch of losses or squeakers that end in losses.  A stretch of wins that foster a four-letter word–hope, then the long stretches of losses appear, sometimes we make it to the playoffs, though; actually, we make the respective playoffs quite often if you consider all of the teams, but we choke.  Something just never clicks.

However, this Phillies team is a fun bunch to watch.  For the most part, they are good group of men, with only a possible few exceptions.  I don’t feel the angst going on the April-October ride with them.  Even if they lose.  I always feel like they tried their best (most days) and never left their integrity on the field.

So, watching the Phils, who I have watched since I was still diapers, win the opportunity to go to the World Series for a second year in a row, when before last year I was 11 during the last World Series win, is just sweet.  I don’t watch with an attitude of “If they don’t win, my world is over.”  I watch in appreciation of their talents.  I watch because I like the game.

Good luck, Phillies.  While losing the World Series would be an obvious disappointment, sometimes the fun of the ride is better than just getting to the destination.  Another World Series would be nice, though.  🙂

Just get him to the plate.  Congratulations to NLCS MVP, Ryan Howard.
