Tuesday Rambling 9.30.14 – Family Balance, Jeter’s Last Game In Pinstripes

Time to RAMBLE!


  • I know I’m not the only parent who’s ever wondered if our family is in balance.
  • There is so much going on – it’s just a matter of how it’s all going to happen.
  • Making sure everyone knows they’re loved and valued is an intentional decision.
  • Intentional decisions prevent the demands of the moment from conquering family life.
  • We try to make sure we’re spending individual time with each of our kids on a regular basis.
  • As a strong marriage helps family life, taking time to invest in marriage is essential too.
  • Our intention is to give our kids every chance to know Jesus, his grace and forgiveness, and what it means to live as a disciple who is making disciples. We want that and will strive to show our kids the life God wants them to live as best as we can.

Jeter’s last game in pinstripes

  • I’m sure there are people who think the whole thing was rigged or staged.
  • You know what, I don’t have any time to live in that realm. For someone to think that they’d have to assume that a lot of things happened against some very high odds.
  • Before the bottom of the ninth of that game (after the Orioles tied it with 2 HR’s in the top), I told Julie that Jeter would win it by hitting the ball to right field.
  • It was a very memorable sports moment when he ended the game the way he did.
  • If something was rigged, it would have made more of a story for the Yankees to be in the playoffs. Deservedly, they are not.
  • It is the end of an era of New York Yankees baseball.
