It's NOT "negative energy" its my LIFE

Friday, March 23, 2012

OKAY!!! Now that ALL trades are done & everything is over. May I spend just a moment of your time & explain WHY I am a fan of the man, not the team? Last year SUCKED for me, my house was flooded, a man I LOVED beyond compare moved to Heaven & I lost not 1, but 2 jobs. During all of this I ment Tim Tebow...I won't go into THAT, but it was amazing. After loosing my 2nd job in 6 months, that day, I read Tim's book. I must admit...that is what kept me going!!! I didn't know HOW I was going to tell my boys. I felt like a disappointment!! But, his words gave me hope! They drew me back to were I needed to be...God! And his words, " I don't know what the future holds for me, but I know WHO holds my future" got me thru. Those words get me thru every day!! So, yes, in a way, I owe SO much to this young man...who knows more in his 24 years than I have learned in 48!

    Its heartbreaking to lose a job, this is part of how we see ourselves- our identity , so to lose that is HUGE. I understand that pain very well. You are not alone in that pain, more than 15,ooo,ooo are in that boat .

God Bless U and the boys

    Wow! You have been through so much this year! Yet, you are trusting in God and persevering through it all. Amazing! I am so happy you are a member of the Tebow's Fans for Christ team because you encourage me to support Christians everywhere on or off the field! My grandchildren are wonderful Christian athletes who inspire me. I am amazed at the genuineness of Tim Tebow who touches lives in so many ways. He touched your life and your mother's! Praise for his grace and abundance in all that he sends our way! He gives us just enough grace to handle it. I love this blog! You go girl! You are in my prayers! emoticon
