Military Dad Dresses Up As Football Player And Surprises Family

When Staff Sgt. Matthew Hawke got a chance to visit his family after a 10-month deployment in Afghanistan, he decided to give them a surprise that they will never forget. He dressed up as a Nebraska player and surprised his wife and six kids before the university team’s annual spring game. Hawke not only surprised his family, but also he fulfilled his childhood dream by wearing the Nebraska football team’s costume.

Verse of the Day

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NIV)
