Bounce

7 03 2010

Okay, I know this is a little dated…but it is bound for Super Bowl “Classic Moments” history…and I’m a Saints fan from back in the “bag over the head” days, so please allow me to gloat just a little longer on our first Super Bowl appearance and win!

I initially had this thought the night of the Super Bowl win, and since I’m such an amazing, consistent blogger, it’s now making the post. The thought was on the idea of bounce. How our lives are constantly bouncing. Some forces too hard, and the bounce gets out of control. Some bounces go our way. Some bounces go out of bounds.

We have to approach life like my Saints approached the second half. When you’re down. When it looks like a win may be out of reach. When the tide is not going your way…remember one thing…you have control. You have the chance to make a play that isn’t in the “safe” playbook. You can pursue a bounce that could change the whole game!

We’re called to bounce back. We’re called to take the force of the blow and use that to bounce to new heights. We’re called to see beyond our circumstance and bounce to where we need to be!

Breathe In & Bounce Back,
Chris





Drew Brees Shares His Testimony

8 02 2010

Yesterday’s win is a day I will never forget….and I pray that Drew’s platform will be even bigger to share his testimony and live it out for the world to see.  A class-act, and great role model.

Breathe In & Smile Out,

Quarterback Leadership

3 11 2009

I’m a bona fide Who Dat nation card carrying member. If you cut me, I bleed black & gold. Tonight’s game with my Saints battling the dirty birds of Atlanta I learned a couple of lessons in leadership from our star QB Drew Brees.

A great leader knows when to drop back in the pocket so he can read the field

Brees has a superstar, or great leader, ability to drop back and make the big play. He reads the field of opposition. He looks for the opportunity. Most importantly he places the utmost confidence on the receivers to catch the ball in the small windows he threads it through. Ultimately he rallies the team to rise to the occasion, sets the bar, and delivers the opportunity for success. In the the end the team celebrates the victory.

Breathe In & Smile Out,
