Thang:
After minimal warm-ups,  the PAX set off up the gravel path with a goal of reaching the dog park.  We were able to reach just beyond our goal and turned around near 840.  We headed back the same way, up the grass/gravel path ending at the parking lot for COT.

Moleskin:
I recently picked up a new devotional.  The Foreword had a great message,  this is a part of it.
Life often feels like standing in waves. Sometimes our lives are calm, and the waves are undetectable as they roll in. Other times, life sends waves of change, anxiety, or problems that knock us down. The firm footing we thought we had in calm waters betrays us as our feet sink into the unsettled sand or get pulled out from under us with the current. Unlike the ocean sand, however, there’s a strong
foundation available to us—a firm place to stand when life’s waves are more than we can bear. The apostle Paul, a man who dealt with his share of storms, both literally and metaphorically, had a foundation to stand on.
In Ephesians, a letter he wrote from prison (4:1), he gives us a hint as to what that foundation looks like.
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and
there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. … [You) were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. (4:14-15, 21)I encourage you to take everything in your lives to God.  Don’t take on life’s “waves” on your own.
Thank you for allowing me to lead you HIM today.  I am honored.
