Literary picture quotes #5: Resurrection

Blessed Resurrection Day!

SuperBroncos!


Celebrating with my Denver Broncos over their Superbowl 50 victory! Peyton Manning’s leadership, a stellar defense, successful field goals, and a team effort carried them to a 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers. Here are some records and incidents of note:

•Manning is the only quarterback to win 2 Superbowls with 2 different teams (his first was with the Inadianapolis Colts in 2007)

•Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak is the first person to win Superbowls as a player, then as a coach for the same team

•The Broncos won with the fewest number of offensive yards of any Superbowl

•Bronco Jordan Norwood had the longest punt return in Superbowl history

•Manning now has the most wins of any quarterback – 200 games won

•Manning is also the oldest quarterback to win a Superbowl

•Superbowl 50 was the most watched program in TV history

•Over 1 million people turned out for the victory parade in Denver

Banyan tree


The material for this post was shared by my dad during a family trip to India 10 years ago 🙂

Banyan trees have special significance in Asian countries.
IMG_6661

Vines drop down from branches and join and grow into the trunk, thereby enlarging the tree.
IMG_6551

This results in a sturdy tree with thick roots.

IMG_6662

This tree is significant because of the importance of family in Eastern cultures.
IMG_6666

As children grow up, marry, and have children, they’re not just starting new homes, but enlarging the family. Staying connected.
