Ode to Tim Tebow

Dear Mr. Tim Tebow,
I would like to tell you that someone like me (someone that doesn't mean much to the world spinning around) is VERY proud of YOU!!! I don't care if you win the games... (though I LOVE it when the team does)... I care about how you handle yourself. I watched you when you played with Florida because I am a Gators fan. But, you grew on me. At the time, I was not a Christian in any sense of the word. Now that I am, I feel like you are a shining light in a darkened world. So, I will happily and loyally support you and defend you to those that are deceived into thinking that the game on the field is the only one that matters.
You are a stand up guy and I respect that. I wish you would come play for Tampa so I could actually see you in action with my own eyes... but if that is not possible, I will DVR the Sunday games and root you (and whatever team you play for) on.
Thank You Sir... for what you do but more for simply who you are.
Your Friend,

And He Will

The New Year has brought a new found love of writing. I have been writing every single day. I have not published any of it publicly because some of it is incomplete thoughts and some of it is down-right too personal for me to expose.
I guess what I am learning is that it is ok to explore some of my emotions about certain subjects in my life. I didn't always think this way. I thought that maybe I should let some things in my life stay where they were... in the past. But, I have been looking at some things that have happened in the past and I have been able to feel real... RAW... deep emotion about it.
This is something that I am not accustomed to doing... but I think that in the big picture of it all... it is something that I should have done a long time ago.
Moral of the story? Be honest with you and how you feel and how you do not feel. After you get that out a bit... ask God to help you in the journey and He will.
No Worries
