Ye Olde Moleskin

YHC shared that God is teaching me how to trust him practically in the crappy situations life throws at you, like unexpected transmission repairs and long lost unpaid medical bills.  I’m learning that worrying accomplishes nothing and that God truly is faithful.  Funny enough, He used a quote by a suspected Soviet spy in Bridge of Spies – “Would it help?” – to remind me of that (see clip).  Jesus also taught about worry in Matthew 6: “And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?”

Besides the Clown Car gang (BB, Jumanji, Snuffy, OTC), Feud and Heisenberg, who had excused absences, we missed some of the regulars, including Farah & Farah, Eileen, Balut, and Hollywood.

Gate River Run is next week, and LIFO has the Q for those not running in the race!

The Mud Run pre-blast is up!  Event is April 30th and costs $55 per person, and the deadline for registering with F3 is March 18th.  Pre-blast is here:
