I grew up in house where Sunday was all about going to worship, then food which was usually a full spread brunch at home or out to eat and then football. These Sundays are some of my best memories from childhood. There is something about following sports that is hard to explain in words and it doesn’t matter what sport you follow…football, basketball, baseball, hockey, Nascar or even Olympic sports. For everybody it can be a different sport but when this thing about it gets into you…your juices really seem to get flowing you are either excited because things are going well or you disappointed and disgusted because things do not go well.
Either way, win or lose, the one thing that I have thought about lately is sports and sporting events seem to bring people together in community in a way that few things in this world can and that may be the best part they play in our lives. May God’s peace be with you.
“For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.”
