Back at Work

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I am so praying that 2007 will be the most fulfilling year of your life -- and mine.

I am torn today. I have a lot of work to do to catch up after having been out of the office for a week. But I would love to be able to watch the funeral for Gerald Ford. My patriotism soars when I see the grace with which we as a nation commemorate such events.

Lots of football to be seen over the last few days! I can't say I watched a whole lot. I watched parts of the Cowboy meltdown. The Jones dynasty has become a greater embarrassment than any time the team was under the ownership of Clint Merchison. Yes, I know about the three Super Bowls (credit Jimmy Johnson for that), but that was 12 years ago. Since then, the Cowboys' best seasons have been mediocre. GO SAINTS!

So far, teams I have rooted for in the bowl games have not faired so well. Texas managed to squeak out a win. But Nebraska lost, as did Arkansas and Michigan. I did stay up last night to watch the end of the Oklahoma-Boise State game. WOW! I never thought I would see Bob Stoopes outcoached. But Boise State pulled out some plays that were absolutely incredible -- and perfectly executed.

So, any New Year's resolutions? Mine are to be more passionate about life, and more surrendered each day to allow the Holy Spirit to produce His fruit in me: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

Hey, were you going to say something about Joe T. Garcia's?

The Big XII faired very poorly. 3-5 and the 3 wins came against 6-6 teams.

No more blogging vacations. I was having withdraws.

OOPS! Is that supposed to be "withdrawals"? Not sure which is right.

The game last night was incredible. I wanted so bad to go to sleep but couldn't take my eyes off the TV. It was a great win for Boise State and fun to watch the coach and players. I'm never pulling for OU so I was glad Boise State won.

Not that I care about football or know anything about it but you're crediting JJ for a super bowl Barry Switzer won. Texans!
