Twitter's down this morning and Facebook's acting like a spoiled child. I need someplace to share my good news. Why not the blog? (Even though this has nothing to do with Third Day, it's still of a Christian nature, and some of you might be into this kind of thing, so why not?)
As some of you might know, I have two sons, aged 22 and 18. My 18 year old is going off to the University of Texas in two weeks! We are so proud! And I've finally gotten him to wear orange! But for years, my older son and I have loved to watch X Games. I especially love FMX (crazy guys doing wild tricks with dirt bikes like this). It's thrilling! (As long as it's not my kid up there on that bike.)
One team of riders that's always been a favorite of mine, although for the life of me I can't really tell you why, is the Metal Mulisha. Knowing this, while we were watching X Games this weekend, my son, who thinks it's so funny that I like the Mulisha and especially their "General" Brian Deegan, looked up info on Brian and the MM. He discovered some wonderful things! Things that brought tears to my eyes and sweet loving joy to my heart. And I have to share it with you. (The part I'm talking about starts halfway through this video.)
Brian Deegan has given his life to the Lord! And he is leading many of his Metal Mulisha mates to Him as well! This is wonderful, not only for these guys, but because they are role models for many young men and women today!
