Tebow's Platform

Tim Tebowed and Denver rose as one.

Tim Tebow

The Broncos quarterback's 80-yard touchdown pass to receiver Demaryius Thomas on the first play of overtime against Pittsburgh both clinched Sunday's game and wrote another improbable chapter in Tebow's book of clutch plays to win high-pressure games.

His performance also borrowed a little magic from another famous book.

The devout Christian's stat line in Sunday's game mirrors the numbering of the Biblical passage that Tebow at times had painted on to his black eye paint during his career at the University of Florida — John 3:16.

The passage reads, according to the New American Standard Bible, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."

"First and foremost, I just want to thank my savior, the Lord, Jesus Christ," Tebow said at the postgame news conference. "I am so thankful for the platform God has given me."

It's Tebow Time in Denver and in Lindale!

What a stressful but thrilling game. Then oise at the Sam Hasz house could probably have been heard all the way to Denver as the guys cheered on the Broncos in their overtime win tonight! All glory to you Jesus...I love the way Tebow is so quick to give glory where glory is due!

...and abiding in the fields...

We are already 8 days into the new year! Today we will go to Sam and Lisa's to watch the Bronco's in a Wild Card playoff. So far...we have been disappointed in the three games we have been able to see them play here at the end of the season. Today does not hold much more hope but it is a good chance for the family to get together!

The Christmas Holidays were filled with family, parties, friends and great fellowship. We had all 27 of our family here for Christmas day. God is so good! Our oldest granddaughter is 19 and the youngest is 4. There are 15 between them so it makes for a very fun day.!WE usually have the children act out the Christmas story with an adult or older child reading from Luke 2. This year, we decided, to make it more meaningful for the children, we would have adults stand in for the different characters and allow the children to watch and absorb the story. Back in the costume room- (i.e. the laundry room) I put final touches on the "shepherds" and reminded them that this was a serious "drama" this year a2Bdecnd wanted no humor! I left them in the traditional shepherd robe and headgear and headed out to the living room for the drama. Mary and Joseph came on...doing their part well. When the narrator read...and abiding in the fields...keeping watch over their flocks....this is what appeared!!!
As you can see-the angel-had trouble keeping his composure as did much for the serious presentation of the Christmas story!!!!
