Reason for Hope

Sometimes it’s pretty hard to stay cheery.

Especially these days with all that’s going on in the world around us.

* Murderous mobs are on the rampage because of cartoons.

* A Hitler wannabe in Iran is about to arm himself with nuclear weapons.

* Killer chickens are spreading a pandemic all over the globe.

* Brad and Jen will likely never get together again.

To make matters worse we are smack dab in the middle of February the dreariest winter month of them all.

That’s why God in his infinite wisdom invented the concept of Major League Spring Training.

It’s His way of telling us that no matter how gloomy or sad we may be today, baseball and spring are just around the corner.

And that’s got to give all a little bit of hope.

Except for Cubs fans of course.
