Last week I was really stressed and my Cardio Rehab mentors had given me many reasons to avoid stress, but sometimes it is not avoidable, so deal with it.
I am a daily reader of "The Upper Room" a Christian daily devotional. The thought for the day, "Trusting in God and serving others can revive my spirit"
The Prayer for the day was, "Dear Lord Jesus, renew us with your peace as we face challenges. Fill us with a desire to serve others. Amen"
One of our friends on PFF is being treated for cancer. Banana Tom posted a very good message regarding "Helping Frenchy" Frenchy, real name Emmanuel, had been over to visit me last week and talk about using my work boat to set pilings. He has applied for all the permits and I tried to order pilings, but Hurricane Irma took a bunch.
I also mentioned to a few that he could use some help setting the 14 pilings he needs. Almost immediately, PFF folks said they would help. Wonderful!
I am letting him use my A frame boat and training volunteers. Since it can be dangerous work, I am a retired Firefighter and safety oriented, I have prepared a 3 page procedure for using my boat and will be training on a few pilings for neighbors. Then we will lower the A Frame to get under the Navy Blvd bridge and take it to Frenchy's home.
I am no longer stressed! Prayer and helping others works!
Anyone else wants to help our friend with cancer, send me a PM. It may be a few weeks before we can get pilings, so no rush.

Awesome brother, did you put this in the Off Topic section too? Unfortunately not everyone looks at this section of the forum. My prayer list is long and Frenchy is on it since Tom posted the initial thread. I'd love to help but I will be outta commission since my surgery to get rid of my cancer will be this week...
Boatless Again, How long? Who knows...
21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
