I love firsts.
I didn’t always. I can remember a day when firsts were a source of anxiety and apprehension. Like the first day at a new school. Or the first time swimming.
But now I love firsts. Especially those that I get to experience with my family.
Today Jacob, age 7, had his first baseball game. He “suited up” for the Boston Red Sox in the South Williamson County League. It was a beautiful, yet cold (36 degrees), morning. But it was exciting and fun and brought smiles to our faces.
I am thankful for firsts… because it is through firsts that God grows us and refines us. And we all need a little refining.
