Prayers:

To the Honey Stinger and Honey Badger family.   Prayer was announced to the family as their mother was fighting hard at her end.  Post prayer, I learned of her passing but doesn’t change the fact the PAX is praying for her family.  We are sorry for the loss and grateful for her life and the HIM she raised. 

CoT:

Not sure if everyone does this but when I sometimes I come across something and put it in my memory bank as “this could be a CoT.  I was watching a Youtube page I enjoy called Kurzgesagt which is a page that takes complex topics and animates them so simpletons like myself can try to grasp them.  In the video I decided to use for the CoT it started talking about how almost all children draw the outline of there hand at some point.  And as a parent you time stamp it with their age and keep it.  Remembering what they were like when they were 3 and you M is sure to say look at how cute.  Then the video goes on to talk about how in almost every ancient cave with art you find the same things.  A stencil of a person hands drawn on a wall.  Some are thousands of years old.  Reminding us that the Human experience though different in modern times is still very similar.  We like to make our mark and say “I was here and this is what I was like at the time”.  But the problem is we cannot go back to our children being 3  just like we can’t go back to see what life was really like in that cave. So in order to build a better future we must make our mark on the present by learning from our past.
