The Boys of Fall

I love October!!
Here are a few reasons why:
  • the entire Holiday season is ahead of me... October is anticipation
  • October is a sportsman's dream - Baseball playoffs and College football is in full swing; every game counts but the season isn't wrapping up yet
  • the colors of autumn are amazing; as a friend said, "Autumn is when all the leaves become flowers"
Have you heard the Kenny Chesney song, "The Boys of Fall"? It is an awesome song... it is an even better video.

Do you pray for The Boys of Fall? I do.

Sometimes I feel a little silly, but I'm not praying for my team's victory - I'm praying for the young men training, practicing, playing college and professional football; these men who are learning from each other and from their coaches. Their coaches and teammates can teach them strong character, honorable values and lead them to the Lord, or they can teach them that winning is everything and to live for their own glory.

These college football teams are comprised of 18-year-old college freshman to 23-year-old college seniors and all ages in between and children look up to these kids. Children dream of becoming football players like the boys on the football field.

Join me in praying for the boys of fall.
