Marchons, marchons!

There’s a lot of things to say about France’s lackluster display in this competition and so many fingers to point and poke the blame at for those responsible, but after all is said, done, and weighed, it just was not to be.

We win together, we lose together.

In victory and defeat, we stand together.

Marchons, marchons!

Allez Les Bleus!

On another note, I made a list of the teams that I’ll like to see get far in this EURO: Denmark, Spain, Germany, England, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, and France, obviously. Netherlands and France are out. Today, England or Germany goes home. Still, so many exciting games left, but I’m rooting for Italy to be champions because of Roberto Mancini.

VERSE OF THE MONTH (June 2021):  

Love not the world,
neither the things that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father is not in him.

Bible Reflections ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ

WORSHIP.

Who or what do we invest time in worshipping instead of God? Is it social media where we attempt to find our 15 minutes of fame daily? The celebrities that are only flesh and blood like us? The books and music that demean our Creator by blaspheming His Name in every other paragraph or lyric? Is it money? Cursing? Pornography? Work?

It’s such an irony that we were created to worship God, yet, we deny His existence, and choose to worship celebrities and other devices that can’t ever promise us salvation.

God is eternal.ย Everything else is just temporal. It’s a reason why we’re warned not to love the things of this world.

Euro 2020: France edge past Germany

And we’re off and running in this tournament after winning 1-0 against Germany thanks to a Mat Hummels’ OG, but overall, France had a pretty good game. I was disappointed that Deschamps didn’t play Giroud for he would’ve been perfect for this game.

There were some winning performances from the likes of Kantรฉ, Hernandez, Varane, and even Lloris. Pogba was given the Man of the Match award, but my MOTM was Griezmann. He had a spectacular game!

Focus now shift to Hungary on Saturday. They’re a tough opponent, so France have their work cut out for them.

Olivier Giroud on the cusp of making history.

Earlier this evening, I sat down with my sisters to catch our favorite team’s last friendly match (against Bulgaria) before the big tournament (Euro 2020). Les Bleus won 3-0 with a firecracker from Griezmann and a delightful brace from Giroud. It was a nice win, the only downside being Benzema’s injury. I’m not sure how serious it is as yet, but I’m hoping for the best.

A few photos from the match via fff.fr:

As for Giroud, he’s only 6 goals away from becoming France’s top scorer:

1. Thierry Henry – 51

2. Olivier Giroud – 46

3. Michel Platini – 41

4. Antoine Griezmann – 37

5. David Trezeguet – 34

Definitely rooting for my boy!ย

I’m still contemplating covering the Euro for the blog, but I’m still uncertain. However, I’ll be supporting Les Bleus win or lose, so I may cover their games if I’m up to it.ย

Scripture of the Month: Love not the world

We live in a fallen world where the majority are against God. We see how anti-Christ movies, music, and books can be. Our thoughts and desires should be set on things above and not things of a fleshy nature.

God must be first always in our lives.

Christians are in the world, but not of the world, as we are called to be set apart.
