This Q was similar to one I had done earlier at the Battery that highlighted “laying aside weight” i.e. sin. However, there are some weights we cannot lay aside. As men we can face many burdens…financial, work, family, etc.
It’s harder carrying weight all alone. Even heavier weight carried with friends is easier. That time of year after holidays in the cold of winter where men can go into a hole under “weight”. Stay connected and don’t hesitate to reach out to a brother who may be able to help carry some weight for you. Reference Scripture Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
BALL OF MAN: Prayers for El Chapo’s bro Christopher going through chemo for Pancreatic Cancer, My M’s colleague who just lost her 48yo husband leaving her with 4 kids ages 10-20, also friends son battling Leukemia awaiting bone marrow transplant.


Mrs Baker could not seem to stay on the “Carousel” and Milk Bone may want to consider a new F3 flavor as the dog in the dog park seemed like they really wanted to eat us as we carried the sandbag by them.
