    Great going Ole Miss, back on the winning way.

    In God We Trust: Let us not forget this!!!

    Psalm 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell,
    And all the nations that forget God.

    Isaiah 58
    Fasting that Pleases God
    1 “Cry aloud, spare not;
    Lift up your voice like a trumpet;
    Tell My people their transgression,
    And the house of Jacob their sins.
    2 Yet they seek Me daily,
    And delight to know My ways,
    As a nation that did righteousness,
    And did not forsake the ordinance of their God.
    They ask of Me the ordinances of justice;
    They take delight in approaching God.
    3 ‘ Why have we fasted,’ they say, ‘and You have not seen?
    Why have we afflicted our souls, and You take no notice?’

    “ In fact, in the day of your fast you find pleasure,
    And exploit all your laborers.
    4 Indeed you fast for strife and debate,
    And to strike with the fist of wickedness.
    You will not fast as you do this day,
    To make your voice heard on high.
    5 Is it a fast that I have chosen,
    A day for a man to afflict his soul?
    Is it to bow down his head like a bulrush,
    And to spread out sackcloth and ashes?
    Would you call this a fast,
    And an acceptable day to the LORD?
    6 “ Is this not the fast that I have chosen:
    To loose the bonds of wickedness,
    To undo the heavy burdens,
    To let the oppressed go free,
    And that you break every yoke?
    7 Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
    And that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out;
    When you see the naked, that you cover him,
    And not hide yourself from your own flesh?
    8 Then your light shall break forth like the morning,
    Your healing shall spring forth speedily,
    And your righteousness shall go before you;
    The glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.
    9 Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer;
    You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’

    “ If you take away the yoke from your midst,
    The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,
    10 If you extend your soul to the hungry
    And satisfy the afflicted soul,
    Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
    And your darkness shall be as the noonday.
    11 The LORD will guide you continually,
    And satisfy your soul in drought,
    And strengthen your bones;
    You shall be like a watered garden,
    And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
    12 Those from among you
    Shall build the old waste places;
    You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
    And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,
    The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
    13 “ If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath,
    From doing your pleasure on My holy day,
    And call the Sabbath a delight,
    The holy day of the LORD honorable,
    And shall honor Him, not doing your own ways,
    Nor finding your own pleasure,
    Nor speaking your own words,
    14 Then you shall delight yourself in the LORD;
    And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth,
    And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father.
    The mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

    Amen JB, let us not forget…many would disagree, many could care less, but I hate to say it, but they will one day. Every knee shall bow…

  3. john Says:

    are you planning an overall story re: the baseball stadium expansion and all the bells and whistles and facility wars, etc…. doesn’t sound like you were overwhelmed by the new digs — you said they were “nice”

  4. rebel2011 Says:

    PA, for some reason I thought Hashman was a JUCO guy. Am i just confused or what?

  5. djrebel Says:

    2011, you’re right. Hashman is the juco signee, Hightower is the freshman. Both are Taylors. I’ll get in mid-season form soon.

    John, the stadium is very nice. I would say nicer that Dudy Noble. If Dudy Noble were being re-done now, I’d be willing to say they’d find a way to get some club seating there and not make it all suites.

    The thing I have always liked about Swayze is that there are no bleachers. Even in the old days you had a seat or you had a blanket on the hill. I think that added to the experience. Bleachers, unless they’re in the outfield where you can make them less expensive, put some crazies out there and call it part of the atmosphere, subtracts from the experience.

    As far as my assessment, I know the players areas are first class. I haven’t toured the club level areas myself, but I’m sure they’re very nice too. They have carved out place on the third base line for us that will meet needs for most home games.

    I remember going to watch State play at Om during the 80’s. All you had to sit on were wooden bleechers. Dudy Noble hasn’t changed much since then except for the skyboxes and the removal of the cedar trees. Prolly before your time though. Nice looking stadium. I’ll be there to visit in a few months when we meet up.
