Getting by with a little help from some mumble chatter at Shawshank

We were without our fearless leader today, but somehow we managed to have a WO worthy of YHC’s “standards” anyway.  Lots of complaining, er, mumble chatter was heard today, but what is a Cheers Q without it?  YHC thought his kids were with him from all the crying for most of the morning.  They say “you get what you put in” in life and YHC is plenty guilty of mumble chatter, so it’s expected and enjoyed.  Some of it is even funny!  Great times as always, looking forward to the next Q, even if YHC is the only one looking forward to it.

Building A Healthy Marriage: Your First Steps

Posted on October 5th, 2020

Categories: Husband

Building a healthy marriage? It starts with good habits and intentionality.

“In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.” — Ephesians 5:28 NIV

This is a small portion of the whole article.

Ken Doll discussed the Beattitudes at The Rock on Tuesday, specifically “the meek shall inherit the earth.”  YHC always took “meek” to mean weak, but KD explained that it truly means “self control.”  In looking for Devo’s last night, YHC found this and thought about the lesson plan from Tuesday.  Every thing we do in our marriage has to be intentional, but self control is key to a successful one.
