BOO HOO, WE LOST...

Milton, here for Kristy:

Boo hoo, my #1  beloved Alabama Football Team lost to the Florida Gators Saturday evening for the Southeaster Conference Championship. So very, very sad. 

How do they say it? Oh, I remember. Just wait 'til next year.


But let's hear it for the wonderful christian young man who quarterbacks for the Florida Gators! Great game Tim Tebow. I'm impressed. I am also thrilled that Tim Tebow is an outstanding christian and not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 


Tim Tebow is from Jacksonville and attends First Baptist Church here with his family when they are in town. His parents are missionaries and Tim has gone on numerous trips overseas to share God's love. 


Wow, in a time when athletes are treated as stars and so many of them are such poor role models for our youth, you just have to be proud and thankful for a young man who shines the brightness of God's love and grace in such a dark and cold world.

Tim won the Heisman Trophy last football season as the best college football player in the Nation, and he was the first one to win it as a sophomore. That is quite a feat. This season he has played many if not all his games with the verse Phillippians 4:13 written under his eyes. He has gotten some criticism for that. 

I salute you, Tim Tebow, and pray that God will bless your gifts and talents as you continue to use them for His glory. 

Now, just wait until next year. We'll get them Gators!

WOW, What a testamony! You Go Tim!
Milton, thanks for posting this...many of us did not know this about Tim. And thanks for showing such a great attitude even when your team lost. God bless you.

I heard Tim speak after the presentation last year and he was so humble and gracious in his faith--what a great testimony to his Lord! This Georgia Bulldawg thinks he's a class act. As are you, Milton. I wasn't nearly as gracious when my beloved Bulldogs lost to both these teams earlier this season. ~grins~

I've heard of Tim. It's great that despite the critics, he continues to wear his verse. You won't defeat him!

I've heard Tim Tebow's name, but since I'm not particularly a ball fan per se, I was unaware of his personal testimony! Thanks for sharing this!!
