Talked about a quote from a Kobe Bryant interview. He noted this was from a teacher of his and it stated “Rest at the end, not in the middle” I started thinking about this over the weekend and how Kobe applied it to his basketball career and was one of the best basketball players of all time. I started thinking about how I can apply this not only to physical limits but also to my spiritual life. I challenged the PAX to live their lives this way in the spirit of true discipleship for Jesus. This means we can’t rest in our lives from a discipleship and spiritual perspective until we are called Home.


Nobody…and I mean nobody liked the beatdown this morning including Q. Lots of grumbles and non-family friendly language used to describe the way PAX were feeling.

Only Toe Tag had to do more Blockees once we got down to 1. He said he didn’t like Q anymore, I asked him to please reconsider later this afternoon after he had time to cool off from the stupidity that was this morning’s beatdown LOL
