I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today's prompt is "team," I love spending my Thursday nights with my FMF friends. I adore these people! So glad I could be at the Twitter party again tonight!
I love watching the Olympics. I get sucked in every time especially gymnastics, swimming, diving, etc. It's so fun to watch the different teams competing and winning. I was never a great team player when I was younger. I wasn't athletically inclined. So I became part of the team by taking volleyball stats etc.
There is something so awesome about finding a team where one belongs. I have found that here with the Five Minute Friday community. I have found it on Twitter and in the wider church. I have realized the gift there is in being part of a team where my gifts and abilities are valued. Do you know what I mean, friends? Too often there are star players that get all the love and credit. We need to realize that everyone brings gifts.
And when a team has good players, we truly realize there is no "I" in team.
When I was little, I loved watching my favorite college football team. In fact, they are STILL my favorite team: the Nebraska Cornhuskers. GO BIG RED!! I have always said that I was destined to be a Huskers fan. The day my mom was in labor with me, the Huskers played one of their biggest rivals and Grandpa, Dad, and Doctor Frank talked about the game the whole time mom was in labor with me. I said it was the first thing I heard, so a Huskers fan was born!!
