I got my batting cage fix today during my lunch break!  82 mph is too slow!  I need to find some faster cages in the San Gabriel Valley/Downtown LA/Glendale area.  It was the first time I hit in months.  I am fairly susceptible to the high heat…the high cheese…the alto queso…the cajun fastballs (bayou)… though.  They’re hard to lay off of until you realize they’re high and out of the (strike) zone.  It’s so tempting seeing them which is why it’s so easy to chase them.  I used a 31 oz. bat with a 34 in. barrel.  It was my first time ever using a bat that heavy and that long.  I still pulled at least 90% of the balls though.


Before going to the batting cages, I went to my car and a car had parked with its rear bumper still touching my front bumper!  Grrr.  Oh well!  I went to the house the car’s owner resides at and knocked on the door a few times and got no answer.  I think it’s probably better that I just let it go anyway instead of making an issue of it.  I just wanted to speak with the driver and tell her (I’m pretty sure it’s a she, because I’ve seen a lady parking the same car there before and also witnessed kids getting in and out of the car) to be more careful when parking.  So if you ever see a dark green 1992-1994 Toyota Camry sedan with chrome 3-spoke wheels and a pretty mangled rear bumper to begin with (dents here and there, paint coming off in places), please proceed with caution.  My car is far from in showroom condition anyway.  :shrug:  And it is just a car after all.  The house also had some cockatiels in a cage which is what we have here (we have 18 I think) which was kind of neat. 


Since Aaron has been feelin’ this song lately, I might as well bring it back! 


In Christ Alone (sung by Geoff Moore and Adrienne Liesching)
In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again (YEAH!!!!!!!)
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt of life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand


Here in the love/death/power of Christ I stand!!!
