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

He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. — Isaiah 53:3-4 (NIV)
