I have a care. I have lots of cares. Probably the most pressing one is keeping my eyes focused on Jesus, no matter what season I may be passing through.
My son has somehow become a Hawkeye fan. The other day he woke up and pointed to the footballs on his bedspread and said, “Go Hawkeyes!” I raised my hands in the air and said, “Go Badgers!” He looked at me for a little bit and said, “Go Hawkeyes!” Then I started chanting, “Bad-gers, Bad-gers, Bad-gers…” He interrupted my fourth Badger with a very determined, “No.” My family has brainwashed him.

The Badgers also play the Hawks, so it’ll be funny to see who he cheers for.
Question to Ponder: What are your cares, concerns, and celebrations today?
