Well today is YHC’s 53rd birthday and have been looking forward to Qing it for a couple of weeks. YHC wanted to make sure the number 53 was well represented throughout the workout and spent some time developing a Wienke that would be challenging. However, Friday morning was the first of a few soft launches of a Friday morning AO in Belmont and Tiger put on a pretty good beatdown. Later that afternoon at Bottom’s Up, the group was telling Pilgrim’s Progress, who fart sacked that morning, the level of the beatdown. He looked at YHC and said since Tiger had a strong beatdown, your Saturday B-day Q may be light. Wrong thing to say to YHC, so when YHC got home, changed the Wienke up and gave it little more heat!

After a 3.5 mile EC ruck, it was time to celebrate!

YHC shared from a recent devotion on Leadership

What hard choices are you facing today? Every leader has them. Anyone can make easy choices when resources are plentiful, harmony and unity exist, and everything is going as planned. It’s when difficulties erupt that Christ-like leaders and godly wisdom are needed most. Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would help us discern right from wrong and show us the way to go. Where do you need the Spirit’s guidance today?

“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.”—John 14:16

Thank you all for allowing me to lead. It was definitely an honor!
