Just Do 50!

Weather: 75 degrees, humid


Since YHC’s 50th birthday is this Friday during the BRR, today was my birthday Q. Last year I learned that it is best not to schedule a birthday Q the Tuesday after the BRR. Friday is also Detour’s 50th birthday. He confirmed that he was born in a different hospital, so we were not switched at birth.

Devo –  Psalm 27:11-14 – Basically, we need to be patient and wait for the Lord to show us His will for us. Be strong, take heart and wait for the Lord. Most males like us are problem solvers and like to jump right in to solve a problem. Or, we think we know what is best for us and start out on the wrong path without waiting for God’s guidance. Be patient, pray and wait for God to show you the way. You will be glad you did.
