Winning and Singing!

The Arizona Cardinals NFL football team won their first game this season and our home was singing the NFL happy tunes this morning while the boys and I watched our favorite player´s highlights.
The Cardinal´s quarterback Kurt Warner is a very outspoken Christian. We have followed him since he was with the St. Louis Rams in 1998. And Joseph had always been a Rams fan since he grew up watching them in LA. We were able to watch all the of the Arizona Cardinal´s games last year. It was a momentous occasion to see Warner in the Super Bowl once again with the Cardinals.
Some of you are lost now and that´s ok. Let´s just say my life is surrounded by football. If I hadn´t grown up with it all my life, I would be lost too. It has actually become something of a part of home, that we miss greatly being on the mission field.
I think our home would sing even more and even shout for joy a little too, if we could at least watch a full game. We have missed seeing the first two games of the season as the internet streaming isn´t working like it did last year. We make the best of it though.
So on this Monday, what´s making your home sing? Maybe it´s a little thing like family time around a football game. What ever it may be, may Christ be the center.

Posted especially for,
Making your home sing Mondays



  1. Well, I have to admit that I don't like watching football very much! I just get to caught up in the game and then get tense and want us to win soooo much.

    So I do better if I don't watch it and then the suspense and competition doesn't get to me.

    Have a lovely day and thank you for linking up!

  2. Love your blog and how wonderful to discover another missionary family in Spain (I love Pilar's blog too!). I am here in the UK. Family time is so so important isn't it and Christ rightly should be at the centre of it all!!
    Love Collette xxxx

  3. DJ,bummer that you can't watch a full game!!!!

    Our home is a diehard Chargers home! Tim makes all the kids, yes even the baby, dress in the Charger gear each game day. It is funny to walk out of the house and everywhere you go, everyone else is dressed exactly like you, lol!!

    And our home is singing with the smiles of Isabella. She has captured each of our hearts and we can't seem to get through school, a meal, or even prayer without loving on her smile.

  4. Yay football! I'm more of a college fan myself though. :)

  5. My hubby watches the games a few days later when it is posted...we are Texas Aggie fans--despite the talent or lack of it the last many years

  6. My husband watches football while I photoshop! He watches it online too. We don't have cable(we're too cheap to pay for it when we can watch most of our shows online now and without all those annoying commercials!).

  7. Football Rocks!!

    Cool crisp air, leaves changing, sweaters come out of the closet. Tailgating, football parties and of course, football food.......

    I could go on and on.....

    Yea Cardinals!!

  8. LOL..I have to admit that I did get lost!! BUT, what a blessing for your family that you all enjoy it TOGETHER!!!!! That's what matters!!!!

  9. Football in your home ,,,,racing in ours..
    think everyone has some kind of sport they love,,,
