Brush with Fame

She was adorable with long blonde curly hair wearing a little girlie dress.  Cute as a button!  But my attention immediately shifted to the daddy holding her.  He was talking softly, their faces almost touching.

A friend of mine told me told me he was there last week but who knew if he'd come back.  He did!

The head coach of the Denver Broncos, Josh McDaniels, was at our church on Sunday.

I almost brushed shoulders with him as we were picking up our kids.  Closest I've been to fame....ever?

Too bad he wasn't there earlier in the fall when our pastor used him as one of the examples in studying 1 Timothy.

"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity." 1 Tim 4:12

Our pastor's point was that we are never too old or too young to make a difference.  Using the talents God gives us is important no matter what arena we find ourselves in.
He may be effective and valuable as a coach, but as a dad loving his daughter, he is priceless.  May my priorities likewise drive my actions making me fruitful.

Oh, I almost forgot....Go Broncos!
