CoT: 

We carry many things on our shoulders. The weight of an inner battle, a fight with someone you love, things at work, can all play a toll on our mindset and health. All of these things can build on us and make us sink into a dark place, where it feels as if we can’t get out. The coupon signified this weight and today’s workout showed us how we were able to hand off that weight to someone else. Sometimes it’s okay to ask for help, and it’s okay to reach out to someone else and express your feelings. As men, we like to keep things bottled up inside until we explode. Instead of letting it get to this point, have someone else take some of the weight for you. It’s okay to ask for help. You are all HIM.

The Plague led us out in Prayer 

Love you all,

Bubbles
