Youth, Braves Baseball and Newsboys

We did absolutely nothing on Labor Day.

Guess what we did on Sunday?

After church we boarded the church van
and went to the Braves game with a
rowdy bunch of teenagers.

Not really rowdy.  Just teenagers.
Some of the best days of our lives have been spent with youth.

Anyway, Mr. H is the biggest kid of all.
My mind says YES, my body says NO!

I can tell you, I don't do cramped up, 
hot and thirsty and humid on a bus.

It didn't seem to bother these guys one bit.

There was a great breeze up top.

And I can tell you we were up top!

The guy on the right?
Our new youth pastor, James Pendell.

An Atlanta school choral group sang the National Anthem. 
It was absolutely the best I have ever heard. 
Simply beautifully done!

We had nosebleed seats, and
I was scared to death!

I could hear the crackle of knees and the pounding of my heart.
Can't you see a big blur of red, white and blue
rolling into the first base line?
I am hyperventilating just thinking about it.

The Faces of the Game
The Crazy Kids

The Other Bunch

I love these guys. 

So sad that they are back in the real world of college

and employment. 


Thankful for the ones who will stay and will miss the ones who go.

The Post Game Concert 

It was awesome to see at least 20,000 youth
worshiping and singing praises to our Lord Jesus Christ.

The 90's crowd rocked the stadium as
Michael Tait writer and singer
 for the former DC Talk sang

I stood with chills as I watched the entire 
stadium proclaim 

I believe in God the Father
I believe in Jesus Christ
I believe in the Holy Spirit 
and He's giving us to new life.


Wow!  What an experience!
What a way to end the summer!

Glad I went, 

Oh yeah, we hit a deer on the way home.


  1. What a day! I'm so glad you went and got to witness so much more than a ball game.
    Bummer about the deer!

  2. Oh the wonderful days of being able to run with the teens.... I am not sure I could these days...lol. What a great time..Newsboys are great and since Michael Tait has joined them they are pretty superfantastic...They have some super worship songs..I did see them in concert a few years ago as a girls night out...It was a blast. Have a great weekend.. Blessings!

  5. OH NO, sorry you hit a deer! BUT... what a wonderful experience:) I wish I had been there to see the sights and hear the singing! Sounds like a ton of fun! Have a blessed day! HUGS!

  6. Sounds like quite a day! Love Newsboys and that awesome song "We Believe"...one of my faves! I also noticed that you a lovely new header...just beautiful!

  7. It sounds like a wonderful day, and what an amazing treat to have the concert afterwards. There is something very special about seeing a sea of people in worship.
