I don’t too tough watch baseball, but when I do, it amazes me how fast those pitches are thrown. When the pitcher steps up to the mound, get in position, and throw the ball, my eyes quickly glance to the right, to watch the clocking speed, and boy is it fast. Nine times out of ten, many players take a swing and hit the ball, but a lot of times, the hind catcher, often catch what they miss. It’s a wonder they wear tough gloves, because I couldn’t imagine what their hand would look like, if the balls were caught bare. Presumably, they’d be battered, bruised, and in some cases broken, but as a result of that added protection, they don’t feel any pain, only the impact.
Like that pitched ball, life comes at us fast. We often don’t know the speed in which things will come, but when they do, we have to be prepared to swing. Sometimes we hit and knock things out of the park, and oftentimes, we take a beating or two. Nevertheless, there are a lot of things that miss and pass us by, but it’s only because God caught it.
Until next time my NOTE takers!
