Third Sunday in Advent

Matthew 11:2-11

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

No sooner do we hear of John the Baptist fulfilling the word of the prophet Isaiah, preparing the way for the Lord, than we see him sitting in a prison cell for his troubles. A mere week after hearing him give the holy command to repent, we hear him asking a question seemingly filled with doubt: "Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?"

Tim Tebow: A Class Act

And the 2007 Heisman Trophy Winner

Congratulations Tim Tebow! You've done the Gator Nation proud. And you've done those of your faith proud.

You've got a great set of priorities. You've got a God who loves you and sent His Son to die for you. You've got a terrific set of parents. You have unheard-of football talent. And now, you've got the Heisman Trophy.

Now, I just read this article on ESPN.com, and I really like this quote:

Tebow becomes the third Florida quarterback to win the Heisman and, as a result, every preacher in the Sunshine State will have his son throwing on Sunday. All three Gators quarterbacks who won the Heisman -- Steve Spurrier (1966), Wuerffel (1996) and Tebow -- are the sons of clergymen.

Looks like I'll be tossing the "ol' pigskin" with Robert one of these days very soon (okay, we've already played around with a football). I mean, I know I'm not in the Sunshine State, but I am "from" the Sunshine State. And I would love to send my son to the University of Florida.

Monday was worse with winds has fast as 70 or so mph; gusts of roughly 100. Both of those were early morning winds as the breezes died down during the day both days (obviously on Monday).
