OU VS THE GATORS

I'm not a big football fan. I don't know much about football. I don't usually care who wins or loses. But I started watching football this season with my husband, as a way to honor him and spend time with him. I've actually enjoyed it.

I read about a homeschooling boy named Tim Tebow. I read about how he loved God. Florida allows homeschoolers to play public school sports, so they signed up Tebow. He won the Heisman, for Pete's sake, this kid is good and they knew it.

SO last night I had to root for my boy, as my husband says. I was PROUD of this young, Christian, homeschooling man.

Did you notice what was said under his eyes? John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him would have everlasting life."

His not just giving it lip service either. He means it!

So YEA GATORS! And Yea! Tim Tebow and the parents that instilled those qualities in him. I'm so proud of you!

I'm so with you on the GATORS! We are not the biggest football fans in the world, but you have to watch Tim Tebow! My mother-in-law's ministry had his mother as a guest speaker for a banquet a few months ago!

Thanks for stopping by...hope you can come back next Tuesday!

I thought the guy acted like a jerk. He even got a penalty for his behavior. That does not speak well for a "home school" mascot...
I like that he chose to display John 3:16, but I just didn't think his behavior was something I would have expected from a role model...
And um...OU ROCKS.

No way! We had to go to bed (we get up way too early around here) and didnt get to finish the game. What happened? I'm disappointed to say the least.
