Tom Brady and God

Thought this was funny enough to pass on.  I am a four-decade Bronco fan, so to have Tim Tebow playing is reminescent of the Elway days, only a lot more fun.   There is nothing in me that thinks the Broncos have any chance of winning against the Patriots on Sunday ~ except an extreme amount of hope.  But I don't think it will happen :)  Enjoy
Tom BradyTom Brady, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded Patriots flag in the window. "This house is yours for eternity, Tom," said God. "This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here." Tom felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house.

On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a huge 3-story mansion with Orange and Blue sidewalks and driveways, a 50 foot flagpole with an enormous Bronco flag waving, a swimming pool in the shape of a horse, a Bronco logo in every window, and a Tim Tebow jersey on the front door.

Tom looked at God and said, "God, I'm not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I was an all-pro QB, I won 3 Super Bowls, and I even went to the Hall of Fame."

God said "So what's your point, Tom?"

"Well, why does Tim Tebow get a better house than mine?"

God chuckled and said "Tom, that's not Tim's house, it's mine."

Thanks, Rose.  He is SO EXCITING to watch!  Wish the WORLD had more like him :)

Oh, Debbie, I DO BELIEVE.  Beyond reason.  This past week was the first time I had started to give up hope in the middle of the fourth quarter.  But week after week, NO ONE gives them a fighting chance, and week after week, they keep pulling it out.  Of course it is a TEAM EFFORT, but Tim is the spark that keeps the engines running.  It is a JOY to WATCH.

Very cute story Mimi. Thanks for passing it along. Tebow has been a joy to see over the last two months and I have both fingers crossed for the upcoming game. I need to take my old Broncos helmet I had as a kid out of the garage and bring it into the house this weekend.

Mimi,  I saw this same thing on Facebook this morning, and was thinking of sharing over here.  Glad you did.  You are right, chances as slim......BUT then again the Broncos are playing with Tim and our God!!!  All things are POSSIBLE!  :-)

An old Bronco's helmet, Doug?  Is it brown and yellow? :))

Thank you SO much, John!  I really appreciate it.

Oh, Joan, can you even IMAGINE?  It would sure bring down the house, wouldn't it?  Do you think they would stop calling him a 'fluke' then? :)

Mimi: We can only hope. The Patriots are a great team, but they are not flawless. And shame on you, the game is never over until it's over. LOL Consider last year's Eagle vs Giants game (The Miracle at the Meadowlands II). I really enjoyed the look on my entire family's faces when they came to the dinner table, wondering how badly the Eagles had lost. I was the only one who had stuck it out. Priceless.

I think our friend Tebow has proven time and time and time again, Anne, that 'it ain't over til it's over.' :)  I am having a dinner party for my mom's 91st birthday on Sunday.  Trying to figure out how we can work it around The Bronco/Pats game :)))  (it will help that most of the guests are football fans LOL)

I sure thought so, Gabe.  Good morning, sir.

Mimi- As a NE Pats fan, I have to wonder - why would Bill Belichick/god be a Tim Tebow fan?  

 

In all seriousness, I am looking forward to watching this kid play Sunday.  He's definitely atypical-but that could be good.

It is my understanding, Joan, that Belichick met him when Tim first went to Florida and has been a fan ever since.  He has nothing but nice things to say about our Timmy :)))  I, too, am excited to see what happens.

Mimi I do not follow football and know very little about the game, teams or the players.  Tim Tebow though, has my admiration for following his beliefs in a good way.

It is what 'they' complain most about, Mary, and what makes him what he is.  I am REALLY crazy about him.

Not yet, Mona :)  Going out to get ready for mom's 91st birthday Sunday, and trying to figure out how to have the game on at the same time :))))

That is too cute Mimi!  I am not a Bronco fan (Go Steelers!) but I'm a huge Tebow fan!  He really has become a household name because of the Broncos, but I've followed him since college.  He is quite an amazing man and someone I greatly respect for taking the stand he does every single day.

I just don't understand, Rebekah, how people can be so derrogatory about Tebow.  Whether you are a Christian or not, how can you not love not only his genuine goodness, but also his enthusiasm, his PASSION for life? And look what he has people talking about . . . GOD!  Go figure!!!
