TeamCanseco vs TeamBooster – Day 2


Today’s Q marked the first weekday bootcamp opportunity of the Turning Point Post Challenge. Just a little friendly challenge offered up by Quis to get the TP pax out in the gloom, “to make each other better & strengthen the group. And have some fun in the process.” All pax that have posted at TP since the first of the year were split into two teams – TeamBooster & TeamCanseco. The team with the most pax that posts at a workout, wins the day. With this in mind, YHC wanted to incorporate the competition element in the #weinke.

This is how it all went down (more or less).

  • TeamCanseco won today’s challenge vs TeamBooster 10-8. Penalty chosen was TPlank Merkins (had to be a shoutout to Chedda!)
  • Always an honor to lead the great men of Turning Point. YHC likes to incorporate a little friendly competition in the weinke -always find that competition helps guys push each other a little harder when the “score” is being kept. Plus, it definitely fosters mumblechatter. Hope today was fun and challenging for everyone.
  • Notice to Future Qs at TP – Mumblechatter at TP rivals any other AO in this region. Be on your “A” game as the pax will make sure that you define the mission statement clearly and execute it flawlessly. (Looking at you, Granola). Love the #Accountability!

DEVO (from today’s Upper Room)


We live by faith, not by sight. – 2 Corinthians 5:7 (NIV)

After three years of severe medical challenges, my eyes seemed to have reached a point of stability. Thinking it was time to get a new prescription for glasses, I booked an appointment. During my exam, the optometrist told me, “Your current prescription is correct. However, your macular degeneration has progressed over the past year.”
Sadness swept over me. My vision will never be better than it is right now, and new glasses won’t help, I thought.
I voiced my anguish to friends who had prayed for me before. Several people shared scripture and thoughts with me, but the most meaningful was a line from the musical Godspell: “Day by day, oh dear Lord, three things I pray: To see thee more clearly, love thee more dearly, follow thee more nearly, day by day.” Yes! I need to fix my eyes on God — to see God more clearly, I thought. I now have these words posted above my desk at work, and I think about them every day.
Of course we don’t see God with our physical eyes, but we “see” God when we pray, read the Bible, and share in fellowship with other Christians. Through these faith practices we can draw closer to God, who is always close to us.


Dear God, teach us to focus on you and draw closer to you each day. Amen.
