Rainy SeasonPosted: May 22, 2008
Looks like we’ll have another little league rainout tonight. This will be the third one in the last week and a half. And Ben and Zack don’t take well to these disruptions to their baseball schedule. But I’m afraid that until they build a domed stadium for the Briarcliff Little League (and such a proposal might face a wee bit of opposition from village voters), rainouts will be an inevitable piece of the experience.
On another level it’s probably good for the boys to face the occasional disappointment of a rainout. They may as well learn now that life doesn’t always go as planned. You don’t always get into the college you want, you don’t always get the job you want, you don’t always get the house you want. But somehow, amid all the rainouts in this life, God works it out. And that’s a good lesson to learn sooner rather than later.
Of course, they don’t care a whit about any of this. They just want to play ball.
