A Levee Backblast

THE SCENE:  The Levee.  Warm&Muggy.

YHC called an audible on the parking spot (moved from East to West of the stadium) and it confused some of the directionally challenged PAX.  About 1/3 of the PAX arrived late because for some reason they did not read their Slack feed while driving or did not know the difference between East and West.  No worries just good to see the fellas.

QIC: Snowman

Shared the following from the Chuck Swindoll book “The Strong Family”

“True manhood calls for discipline of character, strong determination to set a course of action, and courage to stay on task.  Brutality, vulgarity, lack of courtesy to others is weak.  Authentic men aren’t afraid to show their feelings, hug their children, cry when sad, admit when wrong, and ask for help.  These true men know where they are going and are confident enough in themselves and their God to get there.”

I love this stuff.  Had a great time Qing the PAX this AM.  The PAX worked hard, encouraged each other, and a few laughs were had.  No better way to start off your morning than to lead a group of men like that.

T-Claps to Billy Blanks for always being on point with the encouragement to other PAX.   Prayers were lifted for Swinger and his wife as they are about to have a child in the next few days and Pop’s neighbor who unfortunately has to start the cancer fight again.
