CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

“TODAY is the day that we have” – John Shaw

Tim Shaw of TN Titans suffers from ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). His dad, John, is my prayer partner. Here’s what he said about his son, Tim:

“One of the things Tim has taught us, and I think it’s a lesson for everyone…medically speaking Tim’s life has an end to it. In fact, five years ago we were told he only had two to five years to live. We’re already past that. He has learned very quickly that TODAY is the day that we have, and we can ruin today by thinking about yesterday and how wonderful it used to be. And “Oh, woe is me,” and, “I wish it was like that.” We can also ruin today by looking into the future, and in Tim’s case, how horrible this is going to be. “Oh my goodness, this is going to happen,” and “I won’t be able to do this anymore, and I won’t…” So, if we go either of those directions, it actually spoils us from being present today. That’s a lesson for all of us, whether we have an ALS diagnosis or not. Try to see the good and the blessing of every day. You’re here with us today. It’s going to be a good day.”

MOLESKIN:
Thank you for your support, men! VQ is a good milestone to end the year with. Thank you for your brotherhood and encouragement. I’m a stronger man because of you.
