Seemingly Random Thoughts on Frisbee... And/or fellowship...

Frisbee is over.

The 2010 season is finally finished.


Oh well, I guess I'll just have to live with it - BUT!  Next year's season will be upon us before we even know it!  And then there's next year's End Party...  And Frisbee 2012...  2013...  2014...

...Before you realize it, the so-called "little kids" will be in HS, the "big kids" will be graduating college, the parents will be grandparents, and so on!  All the while this is happening, there is an event that will go on every Friday night through the warm months - the kids will grow old and tell their grandchildren how they caught the last point of the year to give their team the win, or how they remember the day that they met ___ at Frisbee and now they're best buds, or even how the first time they drove, they drove themselves to a game of Frisbee!

If you look deep enough into it, you'll find that Frisbee is just another tool for the objective.  You can learn valuable lessons playing Frisbee, or even while talking to the people afterward.  You can build great friendships, or catch up on old ones.

What I'm trying to get across is this - "Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away."
~ James 4:14

Have you seen your breath this year when you've walked outside?  Do you remember just one of those??
That's you.
Your life on Earth is just about as big as that vapor.

So, what does that have to do with Frisbee?
Well, just this...  When anyone looks back on that vapor, will they remember all the brilliant games you had?  Will they remember how cool you looked to your friends while you were playing?
Or will they remember if you put Frisbee as secondary tertiary in order that you might put others first?

I like the sport of Frisbee...  Anyone can tell you that.  I have kept records of my stats through the years (Starting in '07) But I love nothing else than to create, and build existing, relationships with people after the games!  I also like to try and get my teammates to not feel bad if they mess up.  That's what Frisbee is about!

I'm kind of writing this as I think of things - so please pardon me if it seems random.  :)  I'll leave you now with the sum of my thoughts..

~If you believe (As you must) that our life is as fleeting as a vapor, and that we must try and salvage all that we can, then you must also believe that when you come TO Frisbee, you're not just coming FOR Frisbee...  It's much more than that.

It's always good to put things into perspective.

I'm looking forward to what the next year holds...  I have been since I can remember!  :)
Frisbee 2011 - I'm ready!
