My mind has been flooded with various thoughts because of two recent events, 1) a brother of a friend (33 years old, married 3 years, 1.5 yr old daughter) died in a car accident on the way to work, and 2) close family friends in horrible car wreck at 70 mph on hwy 78, walked away with minimal injuries. My takeaway is that “today is the day of salvation”. No need to wait for a perfect time in life to get serious about serious things.

2 Corinthians 6:2 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

And working together with Him, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain— for He says,

“At the acceptable time I listened to you,
And on the day of salvation I helped you.”

Behold, now is “the acceptable time,” behold, now is “the day of salvation”


This was my first Q since November. Way too long of an absence. I was told it should have been named a Kotters VQ. There is nothing like a Wednesday at the Berm


  • Memorial Day Convergence (5/27) at the Barracks – Gus on Q, his last as Nantan
