seeing the good

The all-star game was in Kansas City this year.  It was hot and it was dry and it was a very bad baseball game if you were a fan of the American League.  For that matter, if you like a good baseball game, it wasn't that good no matter what side you were for.  The score was 5-0 at the end of the top of the first.  From that point on, the game was pretty much over.

So what will we remember from the allstar game this year?  First I remember that I got to go.  God bless the kind soul who called at 10:30am the day of the game and offered me tickets.  Second, I will remember that the all-star game, like baseball in general, is a bit of Americana.  There is something that just feels right about being at a baseball game, and this one was no different, win or lose.  Thirdly, I will remember the B-2 flying over.  My oh my, what moments those are.

Finally and possibly most important, I will remember that I was there with my daughter Jenny.  I hope she remembers it for the rest of her life.  I will.

Bad game?  Not really.  There is always something good to see if we just keep our eyes open.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
