Announcements:

  • Reminder THE PIT begins on Saturday 7/20 at 0700 in Halleck Park
  • Be sure to reach out to Polaroid and keep him in mind as he recovers
  • Prayer request from Jeeves for guidance in big life decisions 
  • Also, thanks to F3 Shawshank for this workout/template and to Ponzi for EH’ing Baby Grand to Q again!

Baby Grand briefly shared that each day is a gift and we can help make that an awesome gift to others around us. He recounted a recent tweet/video he saw where a local hero, Ray’Veontae Harris, saved a woman from comitting suicide on the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge simply by offering a helping hand and a kind word. You can view the video here – https://twitter.com/_TaeTheDancer/status/1148795570372468736.

The challenge is for us to keep our eyes open and be willing to voice a simple word or lend a helping hand (even if no one else is) because we are HIM of Omaha who can make a difference in our community. Baby Grand closed with prayer requests and for continued blessing for the PAX and their families and to see each day as the true gift it is!

Proverbs 15:4 (The Message) – Cutting words wound and maim, but kind words heal and help
