September 4, 2013

Today, Jason and I went to the base, and dropped of the girls at the Child Development Center (CDC) and then headed over to his appointments (and my one appointment, too). We were all done before noon, and then headed back to the house, so he could take a shower and relax. We were also given tickets to go see the Giants and the Padres play, and the seats we were given were very nice seats, indeed. As it turned out the Padres organization had people there to greet us, as we got to the gate, and had made arrangements for us to come in through the VIP gate. Only trouble with that was that I wasn't told until after we had arrived that we were supposed to do that, so we came in through the Home Plate gate, which is right next to it. We still were escorted to our seats, as the people who were sent to great us, found us quickly. Our tickets were actually supposed to be along first base side, but they knew we are Giants fans, so they arranged for us to sit on the third base side, and in fact, RIGHT NEXT TO the Giants dugout. It was really cool. The team arrived while I went to go get some food for Jason and I (I didn't have to, as there was a person assigned to get us whatever we wanted, but I wanted to just go take a look). Also while I was gone, the Giants sent over a representative and gave Jason a "game ball", and then later one of the foul balls that was hit in their direction. I was nearly hit by another foul ball, and didn't catch it either, but it was still cool. Anyway, we stayed for most of the game, but then had to leave as Jason was uncomfortable, so we left right after the 6th inning. The Giants finally won the game 15 to 9, with most of the runs scored after we left (I guess it got kind of crazy). I did get some good pictures, though none of them being pictures of Jason with the players. We would have had to have gotten there an hour earlier than we did. Maybe next time...

The rest of the day is devoted to trying to catch up on a few other things at the house and getting some rest. Thank you for all your continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. The only way the day could have been more perfect would have been if Jason had felt good enough to stay for the whole game! I love baseball!
    Praying in Seattle!
    Psalms 116:1-5 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

  2. No matter what storms we face in life, we have an Anchor that holds fast! Praying!
    Hebrews 6:17-20a Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus...
