I grew up in the 80′s when Ronald Reagan was president. It was back in the day when the Evil Empire was Russia, not the Boston Red Sox. (Yes, I am a New York Yankees fan and have been since 1977.)
If you were around back then, you might remember that Nancy Reagan had a campaign that said Just Say No to drugs. I’m happy to report that I never consumed any illegal substance or drug. I’m not sure that this was because of Nancy. I think it was just a fear from when I was a kid that I would become addicted, end up in jail or die.
No matter how you slice it or dice it, I was never involved with dope.
So, for all you kids reading out there in Deuceology land, Just Say No to dope.
Unless you have a friend like Moe. Moe is a blogging and Twitter friend. He liked one of my blog posts the other day. He tweeted it out to all of his followers. I thanked him. Guess what his response was?
Moe said that it was a dope post.
Now, I’m not the most hip guy in the world. I’ve never gotten jiggy with anything to my knowledge. But I could understand that what Moe said was a good thing.
Moe was encouraging me.
We all like that, don’t we?
We in the Church really need it some days. We need someone to come along and encourage us. We need someone to tell us that something is “dope”.
I appreciate Moe’s words.
Don’t say no to dope.
Now it’s your turn. It’s Friday and it’s been a long week. Encourage someone today. However you want to.
Who would you like to encourage today? What have they done? Tell us about it.
