Since early summer, I’ve been working out with my daughters. I love it for many reasons…although my number one reason is it allows us to spend time together. In case you might be tempted to think more highly of me than you should, I probably only average 1-2x per week 😊 and I’m certainly not going to break any records in the weight room or with my running.

We typically go to the gym and do some type of circuit to build our strength and sometimes we also add in some cardio work.

Each of my daughters has better endurance and is in much better shape, however, they are patient with me (as they should be 😊)…. especially when we run together.

One thing I love to do is throw weights around and shout loudly…. just kidding. To be honest, the last thing I want to do is draw attention to myself in the gym. A good day for us at the gym is to have it to ourselves, complete our reps and get out. And here’s why…I only have two important objectives:

  • Spend time with my kids
  • Strengthen my muscles

Anything else really just gets in the way.

This Sunday, I am looking forward to sharing the final verses in the book of Colossians. Specifically, in Colossians 4:7-18, we will discover Paul’s final greetings and directions to his friends.

Paul loved spending time with his brothers and sisters in Christ. He also loved it when they grew strong in their faith. Similar to my desire to strengthen the family bonds with my daughters, Paul sought to strengthen his family bonds with his spiritual family.

This Sunday, we will discover that Christ-centered friendships not only strengthen the family of God, they also last forever. This is important because we will formally be saying farewell to Jordan and Sasha Marcotte and spending time thanking the Lord for the multiple ways He has blessed our friendships.

I sure hope you can join us in person at 8:00, 9:15 (Full KidCity) or 10:45 am, or watch the Livestream on YouTube (Like and Subscribe) or Facebook at 10:45 am.
