Sunday’s “Inspiration for your Perspiration” 3/24/2013

on March 24, 2013


OK call me a “quack” if you want but my family and I love Duck Dynasty.  For those of you who are not familiar with it, I would dare to say its one of the best show you’ve never seen.

Duck Dynasty is a show about the “Redneck” Robertson family (their words, not mine) from Louisiana who created and have made their fortune making Duck Calls.  But that’s not why I like it at all, in fact I have never hunted, nor have I ever shot a gun.  So why do I enjoy Duck Dynasty and what on earth does it have to do with “Inspiration for your Perspiration”?

Well I love the show because for once in a very, very long time there is a weekly series on TV that actually addresses God on a weekly basis.  The family is close-knit, and Papa Phil keeps the whole family real and grounded.  He is especially real with his grandchildren.  He believes in making sure they keep sight of the important things in life.  God and family, not video games, money, cell phones etc.  The family also has no issues showing their love for the Lord publicly and that my friends is what I call AWESOME.  Not only will they talk about God occasionally during the show, each episode ends with the family sitting around the dinner table in prayer, thanking the all mighty for everything and everyone in their lives.  How often do you see that in person never mind on national television?

I ran across this video of Phil Robertson (Papa Phil) and I wanted to share it with you all.  It’s an honest testimony of how he came to know God.  I love that he is willing to admit his past not so “ducky” self to the world.  We are all sinners and “That’s a fact Jack”  (If your a fan of the show you totally get this)  If all of us as followers were just as bold to admit it, maybe we too would catch a few more “fish” or in this case “ducks” for God.  I hope you take a few minutes to listen to it and even share it with a friend.

God Bless!

    Thank you for sharing that video clip. I love that show. Just as popular in Canada. Just completed the inaugural Festival des Sucres 5k here in Ottawa, in the old neighbourhood of Vanier, a very French part of the city. Started and finished on the property of an old Catholic seminary that had been purchased by the City of Ottawa and is now a beautiful public park and community centre. This race is in celebration of maple syrup season. Happy spring to all!

Would love to hear from you!
