Tim and Taylor could it be a love story?

I am not a romantic.  I think fancy jewelry and flowers are a waste of money.  Jake knows this and he buys me new boots or takes me to Texas Roadhouse for a filet mignon.  However I really enjoy a reality love story.  I don’t mean reality TV love story.  I mean a good love story of two people following in love and taking on the world together.  I mean two people that meet and have common goals and then fall in love and work together to make the world a better place.

I do not watch professional sports anymore.  When I was in jr. high I collected baseball cards with my dad.  I also watched baseball a lot.  I watched baseball back when Nolan Ryan was a pitcher for the Texas Rangers and Jose Canseco played for the A’s.  After that professional sports seemed so tainted.  You follow a player, fall in love with his story and then they end up testing positive for drugs. It was just more than I could handle – so I don’t watch anymore.  This is really how I feel about most famous people – they all end up making themselves look bad. 

BUT – The girls and I have really enjoyed Taylor Swift.  She has even been put to the test and still stands like a pillar of professionalism.  I am now beginning to enjoy the story of Tim Tebow.  I received this email today and then saw it on Facebook. 

Pam’s Story

In a recent email, I read about a woman named Pam, who knows the pain of considering abortion. More than 24 years ago, she and her husband Bob were serving as missionaries to the Philippines and praying for a fifth child. Pam contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in contaminated food or drink. She went into a coma and was treated with strong antibiotics before they discovered she was pregnant.
Doctors urged her to abort the baby for her own safety and told her that the medicines had caused irreversible damage to her baby. She refused the abortion and cited her Christian faith as the reason for her hope that her son would be born without the devastating disabilities physicians predicted. Pam said the doctors didn't think of it as a life, they thought of it as a mass of fetal tissue.

While pregnant, Pam nearly lost their baby four times but refused to consider abortion. She recalled making a pledge to God with her husband: If you will give us a son, we’ll name him Timothy and we’ll make him a preacher.

Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed and eventually gave birth to a healthy baby boy August 14, 1987. Pam’s youngest son is indeed a preacher. He preaches in prisons, makes hospital visits, and serves with his father’s ministry in the Philippines. He also plays football. Pam’s son is Tim Tebow.

The University of Florida’s star quarterback became the first sophomore in history to win college football’s highest award, the Heisman Trophy. His current role as quarterback of the Denver Broncos has provided an incredible platform for Christian witness. As a result, he is being called The Mile-High Messiah.

Tim’s notoriety and the family’s inspiring story have given Pam numerous opportunities to speak on behalf of women’s centers across the country. Pam Tebow believes that every little baby you save matters. I pray her tribe will increase!
May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always!

What a great story about a really nice boy.  So I have an issue that when I meet (or hear about) a really nice boy I like to fix them up with a really nice girl.  Isn't this a law for the universe. That  is one of the few romantic tendencies I have.  So, you know where I am going with this Tim and Taylor.  So I Googled this and nothing, I thought maybe there would be a report of them maybe at least talking.  Nope! 

However while “researching” if they had dated or talked or even know each other exists.  I did fine this and it’s funny so I am including it.
