Backblast – Jump 1/13/2020 Northern Aggression

Random Coffeeteria

We had coffee and fellowship.

Best thing was to see Radar back in the gloom after an extended absence…we welcomed him back and then, without missing a beat, he said he only came back today because there would be coffee. Well played sir.

As I recall, the Pax were Deliverance, Slice and Dice, Radar, Special, Madoff, Blue Hen, and YHC.

Today’s scripture was read during YHC’s Eagle Scout ceremony, and has served as a personal refuge when I have faced negativity…

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Philippians 4:8 ESV

I enjoyed the perspectives shared on this scripture. Great ideas about not letting negative news in the media take us off course. Great points about working to see all the good in others and all around us. Appreciating the gift of grace from Jesus. Great points about turning positive thoughts towards positive action. Take care of yourself so you can be there for your family, co-workers, and community.

Always an honor and always right on time, Tardy
