So after a short trip from the metropolis that is Batesburg-Leesville, we arrived at the Beech. I’ll admit I should have left a few mins earlier to properly scope out this new AO but I knew all I really needed were some lights, not so much as to see what we were doing but so that all the BeechHouse pax would get a good look at one of my clown car pax Swayze’s wonderful running shorts in the Glorious Gloom. Upon pulling in most of the AO was dark, but some of the early arriverz that were putting in some early walk/ruck/run work assured me that at 5am lights would not be a problem and of course they were right BAM, 5am let there be light! CAUTION: shield your eyes from the running shorts or you could be blinded. This was my first Q at BeechHouse and these guys worked and had alot of fun with each other in the process and here’s what went down (NOTE: Smokehouse is only a short 15 min or so drive so come visit sometime 🙂

When Peter was walking on water toward Jesus, he quickly became distracted by the wind and waves. Like me, he began to sink (Matthew 14:29-30). But as soon as Peter cried out, “immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him” (vs. 30-31). When life’s distractions take hold and you feel like you are sinking, no matter what we’re going through, He is there. He is here. Next to us at that moment, in this moment, ready to reach out and rescue us.
