Imagine our disappointment this year when we learned John Fox would be following us to Colorado to coach the Broncos.
North Carolina being our home state, we pulled for the Carolina Panthers up until this last year. Last year, we decided to plant ourselves in Colorado and with that we must pull for the home state team. Pulling for the Denver Broncos was not hard for me. As a young girl, with a crush on John Denver, I always wanted to live in Colorado. I have always had a Rocky Mountain High! Plus, pulling for the team that had Tim Tebow on it would be easy. A young man with the character that I pray my young men will have.
Unfortunately, with Fox's coaching, the Gentry family was fearful Tebow would not have a chance. Imagine my joy last week when Greg told me Fox would be playing Tebow this week. I prayed for this young man. Through all his patience and good sportsmanship during this season, I wanted him to be an example of character as well as success.
Due to an unrelenting illness, I slept through the football game. However, as I said before, I prayed this week for him. I slept peacefully knowing the game, although trivial in world peace, was in God's hands.
Oh, what an example I have set for myself to do the same with other issues in my life.
I have prayed this weekend for my boys in China, for the China Center of Children's Welfare and Adotion, CCCWA, and for the orphanage. Greg and I have written a letter to the CCCWA and we are awaiting a response that the letter will be delivered.
Just as Tebow won in the final minutes of the Broncos/Dolphins game, my Lord will win as well.
I will put it in his hands and rest.
