A Good Mail Day!

After our amazing trips to Atlanta in May and to Dallas in June, I decided to write some of Carter's favorite baseball players just to see what I would get. I thought, if I was lucky, I would get something within a year or two, and possibly by Christmas. However, today when I went to get the mail, I saw one of my self addressed stamped envelopes laying with the rest of the mail. Well, I was estatic and I had not even opened it up to see who was inside!!! After supper tonight, we let Carter open it to find this baseball card signed by Matt Diaz. Carter was thrilled beyond measure! (Matt Diaz had thrown Carter a ball earlier in May at one of the games we had attended. Seen here.) Here is the card which reads: "To Carter, Go Braves!! Matt Diaz #23 Philippians 1:6" This is the second signature (Click here) we have received from a Braves player with a Bible verse on it. What a way to win a mom's heart twice!!!
". . . .being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ."
Philippians 1:6

How exciting! I'm so happy for your son, and so proud of those sports heroes showing their faith in the Lord!

Awwww your son is just beyond adorable! I think it's awesome that he has sports heroes like that to look up to! We need more good role models like that!

How cool! We are Lutheran - and our former general manager was as well - which was great because he organized a lot of fundraisers for us to use the Braves facilities. And several of the Braves players work to raise money for parochial schools.

Thanks so much for visiting me the other day via BATW!

Wow Becky!! That is GREAT!! SO encouraging to get scriptures from "celebreties." It makes you hope in the thought that maybe there really are people who still believe in God. I know your son is SOOOOO excited!!

Oh, that makes me want to cheer for the Braves, and I am not even a sports fan. That is so rare and special that a celebrity would be so giving and willing to share his faith.
