Circle of Trust (CoT)

I had planned to talk about vision today but was personally affected by something yesterday.  Ironic how things in life are connected. This past weekend I was talking with my neighbor about Miami of OH (university in the town i grew up) b/c his daughter was taking a school visit there this week. I was telling him about the places to go & the fact my buddy’s Dad owned 2 or 3 of the best places to go. That ended up me telling stories about this Dad & some fun adventures we had together. Now I have not kept in touch that much with him or thought of him prior to this conversation with my neighbor.  Then yesterday I got a message from my buddies wife that my buddies Dad I was just talking about had unexpecdtly passed away yesterday. It hit me pretty hard b/c my buddy & his family were one of the families that watched over me after my Dad had passed away in High School.  Just a reminder to everyone to check in on people, say hi, have a conversation as you never know when things can be the last.

  • Lord thank you for this opportunity to be in this moment today with these men. We have felt you call us to this group of men to change our lives.  We feel you calling for us to embrace this change to be better men.  Lord we know more importantly now more than ever in this world today you are calling for us to be your leaders & to be the CHANGE for others.   Watch over us, those that were spoken aloud & for those that are in our hearts.  In your name we pray.  AMEN
