Men Will Be Boys

I saw first hand yesterday how grown men are still boys at heart.  

Hoping to relive some past glory or think their bodies are ten or fifteen years younger, a group of men from our church took part in a flag football game: the young marrieds Sunday school class against the teen leaders and a few teens.

After battling it out on the field in the cold and wind,  the young marrieds Sunday School class came away with the win.

When the game was over,  the men had bigger smiles, a light in their eyes, and a little swagger in their step.  Even though they were cold, sore, and tired there is already talk of a rematch in the spring.

So for an hour on a wintery day, these men were able to relive a bit of their youth and partake in an old fashioned football game.
