(Turn off music at the bottom of page to hear the video.)
An exciting pep rally and an exciting day, today is Homecoming 2009 and the last year we will watch any of our boys play football. Brandon, along with a few of his good friends, have been nominated Homecoming King, and we get the privilege of escorting him onto the field at half time to hear the winner announced. It is a sappy(sad/happy) year with lots of endings yet looking forward to lots of new beginnings. This video was taken at the pep rally today and as you can hear, Nick encourages the guys to "protect this house." Unfortunately, they did not win the game tonight, but they gave it their best effort. They were pumped up to protect their home turf! This was such a reminder to me that we should get just this excited as we protect our own house. There is a roaring lion out there that would love to destroy our homes and families, but our God is so much stronger and He will guard and protect those we have committed to Him. Do we put that much enthusiasm into protecting our family from what comes into our house? With the media we are certainly exposed to more and more all the time and we must be so careful to continually pray for God's faithful hand of protection around our home and those we love.
