Start your day off right, the Buckeye way…

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State Buckeyes are now part of a complete breakfast.

Buckeye Heroes, the newest university-licensed food, will be available in grocery stores before No. 1 Ohio State opens its season Saturday against Northern Illinois at Ohio Stadium.

The box of honey-nut-flavored toasted oats features three mascots — former Buckeyes linebackers and current NFL rookies A.J. Hawk, Bobby Carpenter, and Anthony Schlegel.

“We couldn’t make them ‘block Os,’ so we made them Os,” said Rick Van Brimmer, director of trademark and licensing services at Ohio State.

The cereal will cost $3.49 for a 14-ounce box at Kroger stores, which will have it stocked as early as Thursday, said Monica Gordon, spokeswoman for the Cincinnati-based grocery chain’s Great Lakes division.

The cereal joins other Ohio State foods such as pasta, chips, salsa, hot dogs, mustard and hot sauces, as well as candy Buckeyes.

Other universities have had cereal promotions but none on the scale of Ohio State, which is starting with about 75,000 boxes, said Tom Schmieder, marketing vice president of TK Legacy, a Carrollton, Texas, company making Buckeye Heroes.

“OSU’s fandom is just a different breed,” he said.

Amazing Grace – Dungy stands by faith while overcoming tragedy

If you want to read an amazing story of faith and grace, you should read this article … 

Phryday Pheast… So who is your Elijah?

It is not wrong for you to depend on your “Elijah” for as long as God gives him to you. But remember that the time will come when he must leave and will no longer be your guide and your leader, because God does not intend for him to stay. Even the thought of that causes you to say, “I cannot continue without my ’Elijah.’ ” Yet God says you must continue.

Alone at Your “Jordan” ( 2 Kings 2:14  ). The Jordan River represents the type of separation where you have no fellowship with anyone else, and where no one else can take your responsibility from you. You now have to put to the test what you learned when you were with your “Elijah.” You have been to the Jordan over and over again with Elijah, but now you are facing it alone. There is no use in saying that you cannot go— the experience is here, and you must go. If you truly want to know whether or not God is the God your faith believes Him to be, then go through your “Jordan” alone.

Alone at Your “Jericho”2 Kings 2:15  ). Jericho represents the place where you have seen your “Elijah” do great things. Yet when you come alone to your “Jericho,” you have a strong reluctance to take the initiative and trust in God, wanting, instead, for someone else to take it for you. But if you remain true to what you learned while with your “Elijah,” you will receive a sign, as Elisha did, that God is with you.

Alone at Your “Bethel”2 Kings 2:23 ). At your “Bethel” you will find yourself at your wits’ end but at the beginning of God’s wisdom. When you come to your wits’ end and feel inclined to panic— don’t! Stand true to God and He will bring out His truth in a way that will make your life an expression of worship. Put into practice what you learned while with your “Elijah”— use his mantle and pray (see 2 Kings 2:13-14  ). Make a determination to trust in God, and do not even look for Elijah anymore.

So who is your Elijah?  And who is your Elisha?….IDYBT IMBO…
