Swiper Claus wondered if the COVID pandemic had resulted in better or worse behavior from all of the kids, so he loaded up the sleigh with some trusted PAX to find out.  He was short one reindeer at the takeoff, but headed out anyway…

Naked-Man Moleskin:

It’s easy to feel the weight of holiday pressure on top of what has been a challenging year in every way.  Family, kids, money, health, and the list goes on.  I  lift up our brother, Snowman, who experienced as difficult a start to 2020 as anyone could imagine.  Rather than letting it tear him down, he opened himself up to taking a heartfelt suggestion from his nephew.  Now, 6 months and 54 pounds lighter, he is setting the bar for attendance at beat downs, pre-runs, and his bright spirit is lifting up all those around him, YHC included.  Cheers to you my friend!

Reminds me of words from John 16:33.  “In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart, I have overcome the world.”

Merry Christmas to all and let’s accelerate into the New Year together…Aye!
