Saturday Smile

BASEBALL PSALM
The Lord is my Manager; I shall not quit.
He maketh me to run in green outfields.
He leadeth me along the straight basepaths.
He restoreth my place in the heavenly lineup.
He leadeth me in reading life's signals for His game's sake.
Even though I walk up to a volley of devilish pitches,
I will fear no strikeout, for Thou art with me.
Thou dost promise me a bonus in the presence of my opponents.
Thou anointest my sore spots with balm; my locker runneth over.
Surely my statistics will be forgiven me all the days of my life,
And I shall dwell in the Eternal Hall of Fame.
