It was another outstanding time with the men of Shawshank in the gloom. You never really know what you will hear or see there. For instance, today, Cowbell was talking about his wife giving birth to their 8 pound baby. He also had hernia surgery about a week before the baby’s arrival. YHC, known much more for his fart jokes and not his wit, or joke telling, thought it would be funny to ask Cowbell about the 8 lbs hernia operation he had. The joke didn’t land until Coon Dog yelled “you had an 8 lbs hernia operation?!” This commenced into a ton of laughter, which could have been more from the heat and humidity at the end of a 45 minute workout, but it was hilarious. You may be asking why this was so funny. Well, it just was. Coon Dog and Cowbell are probably giggling like school girls reading this. You just had to be there to understand. Which begs the question, where were you today? Show up any Tuesday and Thursday at 5:30, we’d love to have you.

Devo: Comforting each other through times of despair, even if you do not know your brother that well. Praying for Blindside’s daughter and family, helping where we can, is a good example.
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
