Football, Faith, & Flattery

As the title suggests, today truly is a random, whatever, whenever Wednesday post! Hopefully, I have some other football fans out there in blog land! This is my third year playing fantasy football and I can't imagine a football season going by without joining a league. This year is an all girl's league and if you look closely, you'll see the joy of the picture below!


Did you see it? Yep, that's right! I finished the regular season in third place! I made it to the playoffs! This is the first time in three years! Woot! Woot! I'm stoked considering that 2 weeks ago I was in eighth place, last week in fifth, and now third! I don't know how it will go beyond this week, but I'm going to enjoy this while it lasts! 

By the way, if you're wondering about my team name, it's pronounced "doo'-nam-is." This word has made an impression on me ever since I heard it preached in a youth ministry message. Dunamis is a Greek word referring to strength, power, and ability...inherent power...the power to do miracles. We get the word 'dynamite' and 'dynamic' from 'dunamis.'
For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective] (Hebrews 4:12, AMP)
The "Word" is effective to perform that which God designed it to do.It will not return to Him void, but will accomplish its purpose. The "word'  is both active and powerful. It is active in that it produces results and it is powerful in the amazing type of results that it produces.

I know football has nothing to do with the amazing power of my God and God's Word, but I love to think of God's power and how He's moving in my life. I now think of it every time I log in to my fantasy football team.

And the flattery...
I got the sweetest email from a co-worker yesterday! It's not my job to make copies for teachers at my school, but when that person is out, I and a few others fill her spot to help teachers out. Well, the copier was giving us a hard time, and I just took the time to update the staff. This is the flattering email I received back.


I gotta tell ya...this email just made my day! I need to be sure to let her know how much I appreciate her kind words!

Hope you have a great 'Hump Day!'

Linking up with Shanna and Savannah! Go check them out!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Shanna! I know you've gotta hate that game against the Patriots yesterday. I was happy to get my one touchdown from Arian Foster. That secured a win for me and I'm moving into the semi-finals! Woot! Woot!
