Super Bowl 51: day 30-💯days of joy


I admit that I do like football more than many women, but I’m not a fanatic, or even a consistent observer.  I learned the game as a girl because my dad always watched , along with my brothers, and we only had one TV and a small house. So, I do enjoy a good game and understand most of it. 

Therefore , watching the super bowl is something I usually do simply because it seems like the thing that should be done.  I do enjoy the commercials and halftime show, as well as the food when I get to go to a party. Yet, It seems there is something beyond the game with all its trappings. 

There is a connectivity with the world that happens when we watch big events such as this, a sense of community in the midst of our great big existence on this planet.  Somehow, our world seems a bit smaller when there is something that many of us can experience at the same time then discuss via social media or at the office the next day.  

I know there isn’t any obvious spiritual meaning attached to all the super bowl hype, and many would argue that much of it is opposite from religious values and morals. However, I would argue that God made us for relationships and there is something basic in all of us that longs to feel connected with others. Events like the Super Bowl add a bit of joy to many lives because of how it brings us together to share in an experience as humans in this great creation of our God.
