Rivalry Week

Image*****Disclaimer* Sorry if this post bores you. It’s all about my love for the game and the passion I have watching my Tar Heels play!*****

You’ve been warned! 🙂

 

 

It’s that time of year in college basketball! It’s Rivalry week! Thursday night is the showdown between the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Duke Blue Devils.  Game on! There is no bigger rivalry in this sport! Honestly, in all sports! Think I’m kidding? You wanna know how close this rivalry is? In the past 100 games, the series is tied 50-50. They’ve each won 50 games. That’s how close it is.

 The Tar Heels have been struggling this season. They’re coming off a championship win last April and they ended up losing some players to graduation and the NBA draft. It’s time to rebuild! But if Joel Berry and Luke Maye show up healthy we definitely have a great chance to win!

And because they are rebuilding, I’m a little worried about this game. Duke is hot this season (ugh, I can’t believe I just typed that but I have to be honest!) Duke loves to shoot the 3s. The Tar Heels are having a hard time at defending the 3s. Image result for duke vs carolina

I know that both teams are putting in their very best in practice in preparation for this HUGE game! They will play twice this season as they always do. This game will be on the Tar Heels turf and then the one in March will be on Duke’s turf.

Carolina-Duke is THE best rivalry! Hands down, no questions about it! And hey, don’t forget…..Michael Jordan was a Tar Heel! THE GOAT! (For all you non-sports fans who have graciously read this far, it means Greatest of All Time)

I’ll be heading over to a friend’s house (who are also HUGE Tar Heels fans) on Thursday to watch this big game. I’ve got my jersey ready!

This is the way I get during this time of year. I LOVE watching basketball and I love the passion involved. I get just as passionate watching a game as they players do playing the game!

When March Madness rolls around in a few weeks, I’ll be one of those millions of people who fill out a bracket. I get all into the MADNESS!

Go Tar Heels!!!!!

Jesus Will Still Be There

Image result for i will never leave nor forsake you scriptureJust remember….when you feel all alone, Jesus will still be there! No matter the circumstances, His love never changes for us. He loves us all unconditionally. He will never leave us.

We can count on Him always. 🙂

Jesus Will Still Be There

Things change, plans fail
You look for love on a grander scale
Storms rise, hopes fade
And you place your bets on another day
When the going gets tough
When the ride’s too rough
When you’re just not sure enough
Jesus will still be there
His love will never change
Sure as the steady rain
Jesus will still be there
When no one else is true
He’ll still be loving you
When it looks like you’ve lost it all
And you haven’t got a prayer
Jesus will still be there
Time flies, hearts turn
A little bit wiser from lessons learned
But sometimes, weakness wins
And you lose your foothold once again
When the going gets tough
When the ride’s too rough
When you’re just not sure enough
Jesus will still be there
His love will never change
Sure as the steady rain
Jesus will still be there
When no one else is true
He’ll still be loving you
When it looks like you’ve lost it all
And you haven’t got a prayer
Jesus will still be there
Jesus will still be there
His love will never change
Sure as the steady rain
Jesus will still be there
When no one else is true
He’ll still be loving you
When it looks like you’ve lost it all
And you haven’t got a prayer
Jesus will still be there
When it looks like you’ve lost it all
And you haven’t got a prayer
Jesus will still be there

Here I Am Anyway

Y’all! This song! I had never really listened to it until just now and the lyrics are powerful. Definitely had to share with you all! The link to hear the song is down at the bottom! 🙂

 

“Here I Am Anyway”
Josh Wilson

I’m like Moses in the desert
When that bush went up in flames
You said, “Go and tell your story”
He said, “God, what will I say?
I’m so scared, unprepared
What difference will I make?”
Sometimes I feel the same

If it’s weakness that You want
I’ve got more than enough
But some days I am so afraid
To show this world your love
But I’ll give You all of me
And my insecurities
God, I don’t have what it takes
But here I am anyway
Here I am anyway

God, I’ve got so many questions
Wonder why You placed me here
You have given me these passions
But they come with so much fear
Sometimes it don’t make sense at all
But I guess if I was brave
Then I wouldn’t walk by faith

If it’s weakness that You want
I’ve got more than enough
But some days I am so afraid
To show this world your love
But I’ll give You all of me
And my insecurities
God, I don’t have what it takes
But here I am anyway
Here I am anyway

If You say go (If You say go, if You say go)
I won’t say no (I won’t say no, I won’t say no)
If You say go (If You say go, if You say go)
I won’t say no (I won’t say no, I won’t say no)

‘Cause it’s weakness that You want
That’s how You show Your love
Your power is made perfect
When we are not enough

If it’s weakness that You want
I’ve got more than enough
But some days I am so afraid
To show this world your love
But I’ll give You all of me
And my insecurities
God, I don’t have what it takes
But here I am anyway
Here I am anyway
Here I am anyway, anyway
Here I am anyway, anyway
