Breakfast with Champions

As most of you know I usually post  art related projects on my blog but yesterday my DH and I had a wonderful experience that I wanted to shared with you.  We had the privilege to attend the Fellowship of Christian Athletes National Championship Breakfast.  As most of the sports world knows, Phoenix is hosting the National Championship game on Monday.  The game is between Oregon and Auburn.  Our friends purchased a table and asked us to join them.  My first time to attend but DH has been a couple of times.

What a wonderful and uplifting event.  The entire Auburn team attended.  Oregon had approximately 10 players at the breakfast.  One of the assistants from Oregon and Auburn head coach spoke concerning Christianity and sports.  Very moving testimonies from both and then three athletes from each school answered questions about their Christian beliefs and how it influenced their lives both personally and in sports.
The keynote speaker was hall of Fame Coach Bobby Bowden.  The second most winning coach in college football history.  He was entertaining as well as inspiring.  It was a delight to see athletes and their coaches attending a Christian event and sharing their beliefs.  We hear so much bad about athletes and sports. It's good to see some of the good.

Glad to hear you made it and had a good time. It is nice to be surrounded by positive, inspiring forces rather than all the negativity and hatred that seems to permeate some arenas. Hope you are having a great day. I am off to bed. Goodnite! Tammy
