Thanksgiving at The Shank

Thanksgiving at The Shank brought us a feast of planks and blocks and math and other things. The reps were plentiful and the form was the form. Doo Dah and Dunphy never made it to the middle. Modify, right? Doo Dah is now on Twitter, by the way. He finally broke the chains of My Space. Cheers kept looking for Sage. He went to 2 AOs seeking it. Good job on the doubledown. Coon Dog wanted Notebook-style manmakers. He got Iron Pax-style manmakers. Genie, Postal, and Short Haul ran to and from Shawshank, refusing rides. Tclaps to you men. Smalls and Beast Boy repped Gen Z. Always impressive to see teenagers posting pre-dawn. Give us some hope. Soaker and Nick continued their pursuit of betterment in their quiet, effective, polite way.

YHC is thankful for many things. The men (and young men) addressed above are high on the list.

Happy Thanksgiving, Men. Now, go eat.

Devo: YHC was searching for a Thanksgiving devotional and the 1st paragraph of one of the many devotionals jumped off the page. It was written by Daphne Delay and it said, “I have found this principle to be true: It is not happy people who are thankful–it is thankful people who are happy.”

It is only when you have a relationship with Christ when you can truly be thankful. And true gratitude will bring you the happiness you seek, the pure joy you seek.
