Seize the Moment

There are certain points
Within a close game
When an individual
Either makes a name
For the team or
Has to take the blame.

In the game of baseball,
It may be when a runner
Is in scoring position
And pulls a stunner
By putting down a bunt
To bring in the other.

My Daughter in 2010 Up to Bat in Softball

In the game of softball,
It may be getting a hit
At the right time by
Turning it up a bit;
Coming through in the
Clutch … never to quit.

In the game of football,
It may be when the team
Takes advantage
It would seem
By recovering a fumble
Or using a new scheme.

Football Game As We Visit My Daughter at Abilene Christian University

It’s the same in life
As there are times
To capture memories
And offer some rhymes
Of fantastic lifetimes.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    In sports, there are times when an individual can seize the moment. To either come through in the clutch or go down in defeat. In life, we face the same challenges. Each moment of each day, we can make a big difference. This poem inspires this thought of focusing on the details of our actions and seize each moment.
