“For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it. Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.”

It’s nice having a home run fence on our ballfield, but it makes it tough to mow. I had to use bungee cords to hold up the bottom of the fence while I weed whipped underneath.

A FamTeam Weekend/Softball Classic will be held on Saturday evening, September 13 (Paul’s birthday!) and Sunday afternoon, September 14. The event will unfold on “FamTeam Field,” the softball diamond that sits behind the the Arndt family house in southwestern Illinois.
The first Classic was held in 1999. As time passed, this annual event developed into something that we now call a FamTeam Weekend — a blend of Christian inspiration, indoor/outdoor fun, and friendship. As simple and “down-to-earth” as these weekends are, many participants have been deeply impacted by them.
Over the years, several Cardinal baseball players (Adam Wainwright, Mike Matheny, Mike Easler, Reggie Sanders, Mark Grudzielanek, and others) have attended Classics and shared, in a heartfelt way, their love for God and commitment to Jesus Christ.
This year’s Classic will feature the traditional softball triple-header, as the Arndt team squares off against a trio of local “all-star” clubs. This will be followed by a fourth game, in which our guests are invited to take the field for some fun of their own! As usual, there will be Christian music, game and food tents, trivia challenges, and a home run derby.
There will be no admission charge for the event.
A note: We will host another FamTeam Day on Sunday, October 5.
If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact us!

The guys and Mary-Elizabeth were waiting for me so we could leave the water park yesterday. Jacob was the first one to notice me taking a picture.

“The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life – only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”

Mom and some of the guys stopped at a fireworks/antique store on our way to Six Flags.

“The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.”

So I made a pretty good decision 15 years ago!
I remember a youth group leader saying something to the effect of, “If you’re not sure of your salvation right now, you can be tonight.”
After leading us in a prayer, he recommended we write the date down in our Bible as a reminder of our commitment to Jesus.
I don’t have the same Bible anymore, but I kept this page. It now has a permanent home in my wallet!

“Then Jesus told them, ‘You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going. Put your trust in the light while you have it, so that you may become sons of light.’”

Jude forwarded this to me the other day. I like the regional fanbase map, along with the “places Norv Turner has lost” map. Poor Norv.

We’re spending the weekend with friends at their lake house. We’ve been wanting to come here sometime for most of my life, and finally it worked out.
