Every year for the past 3 years or so, dear husband has become a cheerleader! Every football and basketball season our local high school cheerleaders have a father/daughter night for the cheerleaders. And every year for a variety of reasons some of the girls don’t’t have a dad around to cheer with them. So they asked one of their teachers……….my husband!!
Can I tell you just how pathetic the dear man looks as a cheerleader! 🙂 He can play drums, but he certainly doesn’t have the moves for cheerleading! But he does it each year with a good attitude and has fun with it!
I think he also sees a greater purpose in all of this, we are part of this great community we live in, and we strive to be a light to our local school district. To “be there” for people and for the students. Drums and I both teach for the local high school that our kids attend, we are an integral part of this town, and we strive to make a difference for Christ…….even if it means being a cheerleader! 🙂 Being a light in the darkness is what God has called us to, our prayer is that God will use us here in our town!
Also, I must tell those of you who are regular readers here at Jesus and Dark Chocolate, our family could really use your prayers right now, we are enduring an unexpected crisis that I just can’t blog about at this time. Please feel free to email me or send me a private message on facebook and I can tell you more. But do pray for us……we need it!!
