Super Bowl 2013 certainly did not disappoint us.
and moments that touched the heart.
I found myself wondering through the game
how I would have felt if my brother would have been coaching the other team.
For one, I never would have wanted to be in that position
but if it happened
I would have been so concerned about my brother’s feelings.
Being my brother trumped everything.
Then, after the game, I watched with so many others
as they shook hands
and John said “I love you” to Jim.
Shining moments all over.
That was the real victory!
To play your very best,
and when all is said and done
to still love and affirm your relationship.
Brief moments that touched my heart
reminding us that it was more than just a game.
John went on to comment that winning was a great joy
but that in a way that many of us can understand
he hurts for his brother.
Yes, I hear those well known words again
“Let my heart be broken for the things that break the heart of God.”
by Bob Pierce.
Yes, in a world that quickly numbs its feelings
I am grateful to see the heart those two expressed.
Super Bowls will come and go
but our brothers and sisters are part of our lives forever.
Yes, there are always the stories within the story
and they are there to teach,
Let’s focus our lives on what is most important in life
refusing to let any thing or anyone
keep us from a life of love and peace.
Is there someone to whom you need to say ‘I love you’ today?
That is the real victory!
