COT: Suffering Leads to Gratitude

Today the PAX went through some suffering to get better.  Putting ourselves through challenging experiences allows us to be truly grateful for what we do have.  We speak as a group often about the values we live by but it is truly another step to live that way.  Be gracious in everything you do….it will change your perception and behavior on a daily basis.  Reach out to a friend, open the door for someone, send a written note to someone close to you.  Gratitude is contagious, pass it on.  

Plague led out the group out in prayer

 

Aye: Thank you all for joining the beatdown this morning!
