Hey everyone!! It’s almost the best time of the year again….Football season!! I can’t wait, I’m so excited for the year to start…YEA!!!
Whether you’re a college fan or a pro team fan, it’s all exciting to watch. I’ve been a football fan since I was a little girl. I used to watch with my Mama, I guess that’s where I got it from. My Mama loved football!! I was in the marching band in Middle School, so I got to go to all the football games with the band, it was great!!
My oldest brother, (he’s younger than me, but the oldest of the boys) played in High School. My Mama never missed any of his games. I would laugh when he said he could hear her yelling from the bleachers!! Most of my family likes football, but out of all the girls, I think I’m the most expressive about it.
I didn’t have a favorite team until the early 80’s, so I picked the Washington Redskins. They have been my team ever since. Mind you, I lived in Kentucky at that time, we didn’t have a professional team, plus I liked the team colors. Little did I realize at that time what a good team they were.
Some seasons weren’t as good as others, but win, lose or draw, I didn’t give up on them, they were my team, no matter what. I didn’t consider myself a “fair weather fan”, like some people are when their team has a loosing season. Overseas in countries like England, football takes on a different appearance, here in America we call it Soccer.
Soccer is a fast paced sport, like our version it’s a team event. Two teams, one ball trying to score and win the game. There are visible differences between the two sports. None the less, it’s still a great sport to watch.
In both of these sports, there is one common goal, to be able to work together as a team in order to achieve a win. We all join some type of team, bowling teams, softball teams, tennis teams, golf teams and the list goes on. We join these teams because of the fun and togetherness they bring. We also join because of the love of the sport.
There’s something else that brings like minded people together, being in the body of Christ!! There’s also a love of people, togetherness, and fun in the body. I know you’re probably thinking, “do Christians really have fun?” I can answer that with a big….YES!! We’re people that like to have fun, but we also love Jesus. He died so we could enjoy life to the fullest, that includes having fun in life, while giving Him glory!! How much better could it get!!
What team do you want to be on for eternity?
