It’s All In Your Perspective (Author Unknown) 

A little boy was overheard talking to himself as he strutted through the backyard, wearing his baseball cap and toting a ball and bat: “I’m the greatest hitter in the world,” he announced. 

Then, he tossed the ball into the air, swung at it, and missed.

“Strike one!” he yelled. Undaunted, he picked up the ball and said again, “I’m the greatest hitter in the world!”

He tossed the ball into the air. When it came down he swung again and missed. “Strike two!” he cried.

The boy then paused a moment to examine his bat and ball carefully. He spit on his hands and rubbed them together. He straightened his cap and said once more, “I’m the greatest hitter in the world!”

Again he tossed the ball up in the air and swung at it. He missed. “Strike three!”

“Wow!” he exclaimed. “I’m the greatest pitcher in the world!”

The pessimist will walk a journey of sadness and dismay, for it’s all his eyes can behold, but the optimist will see brightness and joy throughout his imperfect life and his journey will be one of fondness and joy!

Proverbs 4:23 (TLB) “Above all else, guard your affections. For they influence everything else in your life.”

In His love,
Pastor Tim Burt
