Prayer Requests: Continued prayer requests for Light Bill’s family and the others who were involved in the accident last weekend. Continued prayers for Money Penny’s sister in law. Prayers for Fire Daddy’s neighbor who was involved in an accident this week.

Moleskin: Kudos to those PAX who’ve been saying they need to “get back at it.” It’s one thing to say it, it’s another thing to actually do it. Pulling yourself out of the fartsack, especially on a cold morning, is half the battle. Keep getting after it! Today’s devo was appropriate and one we all need to keep in mind: “as iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Good group of dudes out here at the Roost.
