Today’s Message is: “Jump Day!” Why Not?


“What separates the good leaders from the great? If you want to make the jump from a good leader to a great one it begins with dedication and change. Start each day with a positive routine, always be optimistic in the face of uncertainty, set goals toward a purpose and communicate them; and be that model of leadership (inspire, empower, and serve). Are you ready to jump?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

My wife's special plan was to steam clean carpets when I got home from the men's prayer breakfast. She let me know when I got home. Now it is accomplished.

It's raining all day, so no hunting. I will go out after church tomorrow though.
