Beckham hits one hundred games for England

So he finally made it. Playing for England for one hundred games. David Beckham put on the England shirt again yesterday with pride and honor. He made his debut for England at the age of 21 on Sept. 1, 1996, in a World Cup qualifier against Moldova. He has had his highs and lows in the England shirt but on of the most memorable moment for me was seeing him hit a 35 yard, 90 mph free kick into the top left hand corner on the net against Greece. The goal was in the 93rd minute (3 min into extra time) and sent England into the world cup.

Its at moments like these that I feel we all need to be ready for. Not to kick a ball into a net. But to step up to a challenge and face it head on. The bible is full of people who faced challenges each and everyday. David, Joseph, Joshua, Moses, Paul and of course Jesus, the ultimate hero. He actually faced death head on and conquered it. I pray that as you read this is will inspire you to face what your going through and conquer it. As for Becks, he's still one of the best football (soccer) players to ever walk the planet. Hes so good.... my son's middle name guessed it, BECKHAM
