When I used to coach pageant contestants for the Miss America program, I remember a judge asked an unusual question during the interview phase of competition, "Which would you rather be, the baseball or the baseball bat and why?" My guess is the purpose of the question was to see how quickly the contestant could think on her feet. I thought about how I personally would answer that question and would have to say I would want to be the baseball so that I could be free to go different places. During this evening's paddle, I found this baseball floating in the river, reminding me of that particular Q&A.
I love that in my relationship with Christ, I now have the freedom to go wherever I trust God to take me. And he's taken me to some very interesting places!!!
