Courage is fear that has said its prayers

Another year, another season

I can’t even begin to tell you how fast the off-season came and went. In a week’s time, David and I will be moving to Tampa to report for Spring Training.
Much to my relief, we were able to find a fully furnished apartment to lay down our roots for a whopping 2.5 months prior to the commencement of the regular season. I’m actually very excited just knowing that we will have a fully furnished home – to ourselves – for the entirety of Spring Training.

I feel strongly that this off-season has been a time of cleansing. Much has happened and even though we don’t have clear answers to all the whys, we know that the Almighty has a plan in mind. There is a sense of peace that has come over me and in a world where nothing is certain, that is all I can ask for. I have learned to trust in the Lord with all my heart, and lean not on my own understanding. In all my ways I acknowledge Him, and he will make straight my paths. Proverbs 3:5-6.

So with that in mind, David and I have few expectations for this season. We have set goals for ourselves but we know that whatever happens is for the best and for a greater purpose. We are handing over any worries to He who strengthens us, allowing God to be our refuge and our fortress. Psalms 91.

See you in Tampa!

God bless,

  1. Hi, it’s interesting to read your blog… life as a peripatetic wife! I really like it. I will be back for more. Have a great year ahead, Camille.

  2. Thanks for sharing this… I always wonder about the grind on the family with all the moving and uncertainty. You have a great way of humanizing the pro athlete spouse role, a nice change from some of the weird reality shows on VH1. My go to is Pslam 37-23: The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and He delighteth in his way. I like to imagine walking hand and hand with God, especially through times of trail. Best to you and David this spring!

    1. Thank you so much Alicia! I am thrilled to hear that you appreciate my candidness. Ha. I am a pretty emotional person and I think that comes through in my writing. I am to be as genuine and open-hearted as possible with my posts. I love that Psalm. One of my other favorites is Psalm 35…the Bible is full of wonderful wisdom. Thank you again for your sweet words. xoxo
