CR/NR/Prayer request

F3 Has changed me. You have changed me. I am simply a better man for having known you and having experienced life together. My last few months have been physically challenging and I have missed our time together greatly. But I am on the mend And look forward to greater times ahead. In that light, Martin Luther said, “This life therefore is not health, but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it, the process is not yet finished, but it is going on, this is not the end, but it is the road.

So I urge you to stay on your road, do your own growing, but do not be on the road alone. Take it from me, that’s a scary place. Lean into each other and draw from your shared strengths. Shoulder your weakness together.

Speaking of roads , there’s one very close to here called I-95. If you take it south for 60 minutes, you’re at my place in Ormond Beach. I welcome you all and I will need you all when we like F3 Daytona!

Peace Out

I love you, Men
