"For while bodily training is of some value,
Godliness is of value in every way,
As it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.”

Dear friends and family…,
Pre-season training is an art;
To last four quarters, play our part.
Paul told Timothy, “be real smart;
'Godliness' training won't depart”.
To give our Spirit, a ‘jump-start’;
Let's learn more Scriptures, off by heart.
Hallelujah! ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
