Today's Photograph . . . . We Are Not Supposed To Have "Bad Hair Days" (Marti M)
Bible Study Verse
Colossians 3:23
Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men. (NASB)
Do you ever sense the pressure to perform? At work we are not supposed to have "bad hair days," but we do from time-to-time. Even on fishing or hunting expeditions, there is that slight pressure to perform - to successfully land a large fish or bag some impressive game. We also want to be "up" for our friends, to encourage them, not to bring them down. 
The harsh reality is, we aren't always "up" or at our prime 24/7. This is also true in our relationship with the Lord. We want to be at our best for Him, but we aren't 100 percent of the time. Do our real friends forsake us when we let them down? Does God condemn us when we let Him down? The answer is, No! 
(Tom H)

Action Point
Keep relating to God, your family and your friends no matter what the circumstances. We all are in the same boat when it comes to good days and bad days. Let's extend grace towards family members and friends who may not be doing too well. We might be the one who needs grace the next time. 

Sportsmen's Tip of the Day 
Always have a roll of duct tape or, better yet, Gorilla tape handy. There is no end to how you can repair things with that stuff. I have patched inflatable boats and even mountain bike tubes with this incredible water-proof tape. It's not a permanent fix, but it may get you home.
