Announcements:  CSAUP on 1/29/21

Prayer requests: Several with Tube Socks asking for all of us to look out for someone else.

COT:  Q stated that a recent COT by another PAX hit home earlier this week to him.  This PAX member remarked how knowing he had an upcoming Q  brought him focus and energy.  Q was tired and dragging after last week.  He was going through the motions with his workouts.  When Slow Pitch asked if he would fill in for him on Wednesday it immediately energized him and raised his level of focus. Knowing he was going to Q on short notice made him happy.   If you are in a funk, a great way to get out of that is to Q!  Get on the schedule!

Thank you for letting me lead today!
