Happy Sunday

An awakening

It truly feels like we are in a movie right now but we can’t panic, we must remain calm. From time to time I like to bring sports analogies into my conversations to drive my point home, so bare with me. In the mid 80s I played 8th grade basketball with one of South Carolina’s greatest basketball player’s, Gerald Daise(google him), he was a phenomenal human being as well. To start, football season always started first, so we all decided to tryout for the team, but we soon found out that we didn’t have enough players to put on the field so our football season was forfeited. We took that extra time to build chemistry amongst us players and when the basketball season started we was like the Showtime Lakers. We had a great season, ended our playoff drought but we got knocked out in the 2nd round but I still considered that season a success. We took a failed football season and turned it into great basketball season. We didn’t let fear stop us, we kept pushing forward. Our goal was to make the playoffs and we did! The COVID 19 Pandemic is our opponent right now, we can’t let fear overwhelm us, we must keep our head in the game. We must stay calm during this storm and we must keep the faith, failure is not an option, this is our season for victory, this is our true awakening!

Hope

There are three things that will endure- faith, hope, and love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

Satisfaction

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Story time with Boo (Tarzan)

Boo was a energetic kid who defied all odds, but his birth defect didn’t slow him down. From time to time Boo had to stay over to his great grandparents house because his parents worked long shifts. Naturally Boo’s great-grandmother was over protective but Boo wasn’t having it. During the 70s Tarzan was a big show on tv and a lot of kids tried to mimic Tarzan swinging from vine to vine. Long story short, you know Boo had to try swinging from a rope in a tall oak tree and somehow his right ankle got tangled up and he was hanging upside down calling for help. Frantically his grandmother ran to the tree when she heard his cries for help and was able to cut him down. Let’s just say Tarzan was grounded from that day forward, more ways than one…😂
