Quatro led the BOM our in prayer
Tclaps to FroYo for his encouragement to YHC that ensured he and all the rest of us didn’t get cheated on this rainy day in the gloom. YHC is not very creative, so it was an easy call to return to the pond.
Thoreau spent a couple of years by a pond, and among the many profound quotes attributed to him, this one rings true for what we experience in the gloom:
“Morning brings back the heroic ages…The morning, which is the most memorable season of the day, is the awakening hour. Then there is least somnolence in us; and for an hour, at least, some part of us awakes which slumbers all the rest of the day and night.”
The morning post is our awakening and refining hour where we come alive through fellowship. It sets the foundation for the rest of the day to help us be the men God has designed us to be.
YHC feels extremely blessed to have the opportunity to spend my awakening hours in the midst of a remarkable brotherhood.
